Joe was the best! We had a great stay. The personal service and the rooms were amazing. The breakfast was truly a home cooked experience we will never forget. Will definitely recommend and be back ourselves!

Beauclaires B&B is in a great location where it is close to the beach and the shops downtown. The rooms were very nice and clean. Our room was the Beaculaire Suite that had the main bed and a small day bed; however, the day bed was very uncomfortable. The main bed just got a new pillowtop mattress, so that seemed to be comfortable. We stayed for two nights and the breakfast that Joe served each morning was delicious. He even went out of his way to find me flavored creamer for my coffee, which was very nice of him. The porch swing is wonderful and you can see part of the ocean from it. Very relaxing overall.

Great location, but that's it

This B & B is walking distance from the beach, restaurants and theater. Service was minimal. Over-priced for the experience we had.

Amazing B&B

Conveniently located in the heart of Cape May and within easy walking distance of several excellent restaurants, Beauclaires is definitely worth a return visit. Charming architecture and very friendly owner on premises.

What a wonderful stay

Could not have asked for a better 3 days, then the getaway we spent at Beauclaires. The house was lovely. Steps from the beach, in the middle of the historic district, clean, elegant. Simply charming. Our host, Joe was the best. Laid back and easy going, and his breakfasts were to die for! We will be back on our next visit to Cape May!
