Another Great stay at the Bacchus Inn

5 on January 06, 2016

This was our second stay at the Bacchus and we were again treated to great service, terrific food and a relaxing atmosphere. John is a great host and makes every effort to anticipate any needs or provide referrals for restaurants or special events in town. We would recommend the Bacchus for any special occassion.


great get away

The Bacchus was a great find. The house is beautiful, room warm and well kept. The owner is super friendly, very talkative and extremely helpful with any questions about the area which made our stay very fun. I highly recommend it.

John and Lisa are the ultimate hosts. Friendly, helpful, detail-oriented. Guests feel right at home. Breakfasts and afternoon "wine and cheese" are the best. These times are when John engages the guests in lively conversation. You can also choose to eat quietly in your own space. Rocking on the front porch and hearing the clip-clop of the horse carriages is very relaxing.


John is just outstanding!

We stayed the weekend of Dec 11-12, 2015. We stayed for 2 nights. We stayed in the Rhone Room (#4). It has a Queen Bed and a wonderful private shower. We loved rocking on the porch drinking champagne and watching the horse and carriages go by. I loved the 12 days of Christmas theme in both the dining room table and large Christmas tree. It is situated within walking distance of the mall and beach. John is a wonderful innkeeper and I would recommend this inn wholeheartedly! We plan on returning soon.


Loved the Bacchus Inn

4.2 on December 13, 2015

We stayed at The Bacchus inn for 3 nights in December to celebrate my birthday. It was a wonderful experience. John, the innkeeper was very friendly and hospitable. He served wine, crackers & cheese, nuts and homemade cookies every afternoon. Breakfast was homemade and very delicious. It was nice to have a choice of time for breakfast. We are not hungry first thing in the morning and like to take a long walk before breakfast. The 9:45 option worked well for us. The inn was decorated beautifully for Christmas. It was a quiet time (we stayed Monday-Thursday), so we only met three other couples. They were all very friendly and nice. We stayed in room 5 in the main house. It had an en suite bathroom, small but adequate, and a comfortable king size bed. It was very clean and well kept. Paul & Linda Scotch Plains, NJ


Great time every year.

John and Lisa run a great B&B. They make you feel welcome and are a lot of fun. We head down every year and wouldn't think of going anywhere else.


John was great!

4.0 on October 27, 2015

John was so friendly & accommodating. Other guests were too providing warm vibe around breakfast table. Limited kitchen capacity & hired help shortage had some impact but more than compensated by innkeeper's attitude. Would heartily recommend.


Best B&B in Cape May

This was a lovely place to stay on Cape May - even in the pouring rain! Great restaurant recommendations. Great wine and cheese hour. Loved meeting other guests and hearing about their explorations. Perfect host! Rooms a little small but adequate and extremely clean. All good!
