Weekend at the John Wesley

5 on April 02, 2014

On a cold and damp March weekend my wife and I stayed at the John Wesley. We were greeted warmly, had a very clean and cozy room, and each morning shared stories with Bonnie who served us a scrumptious breakfast. It was a pleasure and we will definitely return.

John Wesley Inn, Gorgeous and Delightful Bed and Breakfast

5 on March 26, 2014

Bonnie and Lance were wonderful, gracious hosts and the Inn is absolutely beautiful. It is true to the grand Victoria charm of Cape May while being intimate enough to give the feel of being the owners personal guests. A stay at the John Wesley Inn fulfills one's most idealistic, charming, and quintessential bed and breakfast experience. It is a true standout in Cape May.

Valentine's Getaway

4.6 on March 02, 2014

Had a fabulous time at the Inn! Such a beautiful, yet so quaint, home. Our room was beautiful. Even though the weather was so cold in Cape May, we had a wonderful stay at the Inn and visiting a couple of wineries nearby. Had a delicious breakfast and had great company. Bonnie (the owner) was very helpful and pleasant!

Christmas in Victorian Cape May

5 on January 02, 2014

Christmas in Victorian Cape May would not be Christmas if we weren't staying with Bonnie and Lance at the John Wesley Inn. These two go out of their way to make sure your stay at The Inn is every thing you would hope it to be. It's a great location with on-site parking that allows for enjoyable walks to all that Victorian Cape May has to offer. With the Innkeepers making this their house, The Inn is well tended and presents itself more as a home than a B&B. We enjoy relaxing and starting our Christmas season at the John Wesley Inn, before the hustle and bustle of our Christmas season begins.

Wonderful Life
