Gingerbread Great

5 on October 23, 2014

My wife and I found the Gingerbread House an excellent place not just stay but to feel the warm friendliness, relaxing environment, great breakfast, conversation and closeness and being within walking distance to local eateries and other interesting shops. We are looking forward to next years stay at the Gingerbread House. Jeff & nancy Swanger, 220 Stonehedge Lane, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055


Excellent B&B in Great location in Cape May

4.8 on September 15, 2014

Fantastic hosts, breakfast, room, location, amenities, snacks. We loved it! These folks went out of their way to make us comfortable and to help guide us as we visited Cape May for the first time. We were very lucky to have a room available as our plans were last minute. Someone happened to cancel and we were able to stay. We really enjoyed it at the Gingerbread House and will plan to stay there next visit to Cape May

Great place! Block from the beach!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the Gingerbread House. The innkeepers Joan and Fred are lovely people and genuinely care about your comfort in their home. The service was great, the food was delicious, and their porch is so relaxing. We will definitely return.


Perfect B&B

This has to be one of the nicest B&Bs we've stayed at! Our hosts Joan and Fred were fantastic, the food was exceptional, the location could not be better, and the house and property was in pristine condition ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !


1/2 Block from Beach

3.8 on July 02, 2014

Perfectly, located 1/2 a block away from the beach and close to all the stores on Beach Ave, this is a great deal! The staff are all very nice, helpful, and attentive. The house is very nicely kept, rooms are clean, and there is always coffee, tea and snacks available. There's a bike rack in the back, beach chairs and towels are available, and there's even an outdoor shower. There's a nice selection of cold breakfast items available but the hot breakfast was just OK, not bad, just not really good. Overall, it's a great place and I wouldn't hesitate to come back.


Perfect Location & Great Hospitality

5 on June 12, 2014

The Gingerbread house is located right in the middle of everything; beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. Fred & Joan were great hosts and every morning a delicious hot meal was served along with other cold options. We were also able to keep our bikes right out back on their bike rack. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We will definitely be back!


Great place for a Cape May newcomer

4.6 on May 30, 2014

The Gingerbread House is centrally located to the boardwalk, restaurants, and attractions. The comprehensive file of restaurant menus was a welcome convenience. Breakfast was a two-part feast. We enjoyed talking to Fred about his renovation work, greatly admired his mother's water colors and the antique furniture. Joan shared further information about the house and offered us tasty home-baked treats. The room was beautifully decorated, with sufficient reading lights and quite roomy. The front porch was a welcome spot to enjoy a glass of wine after a full day of walking around town admiring the beach and Victorian architecture. We spent little time in the room because we were either out on the town or downstairs on the porch. Our second floor room was quiet, roomy, comfortable, and nicely decorated.


Great time in Cape May

We had a very nice time, and the house is wonderful with all the Victorian accessories and furnishings. The Innkeepers are very accommodating, and the B&B is very close to restaurants, shopping and the beach. C.Jones
