THE place to stay in Cape May

5 on July 19, 2016

Great location. Great amenities (Bicycles, beach chairs, outdoor shower) Unpretentious.


Excellent Choice

The Bacchus Inn is an excellent choice. The bikes and beach chairs are extremely handy. Getting around on bike is much easier than on foot. The location is great, food and service was excellent and this is one of few places that has plentiful king beds with air conditioning in each room. Highly recommended.

My husband and I had a great time at the Bacchus Inn.


Our first but not our Last trip to Cape May

What an unexpected pleasure it was. The Inn was charming - lovely front porch to sit on in the am or at wine and cheese . John is amazing - all places at once and never hassled. ( well, seemingly). He had such a nice way of making all the visitors feel comfortable. If you wanted to stay to yourself, there are lots of nooks to sit in and enjoy. IF you want to talk, he is great at stimulating conversations or picking up on something you said. The breakfasts are different each day and there is always a tray with muffins and coffee if you get your day going earlier than most. The wine and cheese offerings are different each afternoon as well. All in all, it was wonderful and we want to come back - with more of our family for a relaxing reunion


Very accommodating, clean, charming, and affordable.

My husband and I were looking for an affordable stay in a sea of expensive B&Bs. We were delighted to find the Bacchus Inn. It is centrally located, and offers a lot of value for a great price. it was clean and relaxing and beautiful. The host was very understanding about my dietary needs. I am gluten intolerant and he was careful to offer me a delicious meal that was safe for me to eat. Also, breakfast was offered in an early shift and a late shift. We were thrilled not to have to get up early and sat down at 9:45 instead. We spent a lot of time on the beach, exploring town, the lighthouse, and the nature preserve. We had to check out at 11am and they offered us use of the outdoor showers later in the day so we could clean up and get ready for dinner that night. We are very pleased. We told our parents about the Inn and they are now planning their own stay.


ANOTHER GREAT STAY

Home Away from Home

I love coming here to relax and get away from everyday stress. It is a beautiful inn with a welcoming host. I try to come on my birthday week and a couple of times during the warmer weather.


Beautiful stay

A wonderful B&B, Host John couldn't be more friendly. Room was clean and beautiful. We loved playing pool on the table in the Cottage where we stayed. Breakfast was by far the best I've ever had at a B&B! Best location, right in the middle of beach and town. The ONLY suggestion I would make would be to add a foam topper to the bed which was a little hard for my taste, but all in all, fantastic stay.


Wonderful stay in Cape May!
