Memorable Birthday Weekend Gataway

5 on May 04, 2016

I surprised my wife with a stay in Cape May and the John Wesley Inn. I couldn't have been a better experience. Bonnie is an outstanding innkeeper. She went above and beyond to have a cake made by a private baker for my wife. It was delicious and so was the breakfasts at the John Wesley Inn. Some guests and my wife and I were talking at breakfast and commented how clean and neat everything was at the Inn. Our room was cozy and the bed was really comfortable. If you are looking for a great B and B in Cape May, look no further than the John Wesley Inn. You will not be disappointed.

A beach getaway paradise

The John Wesley inn in cape may is absolutely stunning. The inn keepers Bonnie & Lance were so hospitable, welcoming and helpful in sharing information about events in the area. Bonnie is a fabulous cook and the breakfasts were delicious. I look forward to staying there again soon.

The John Wesley Inn is an outstanding place to stay for a great getaway. The home is beautiful. The owners are wonderfully hospitable. The location is ideal for walking to the beach, restaurants, shops and other sites. I have been there about a dozen times and will return again!!

Perfect B&B for a romantic getaway

John Wesley Inn is absolutely gorgeous! While planning my boyfriends birthday getaway, I looked at dozens of B&B's in Cape May. When I found this Inn, I was sold!! Bonnie, the innkeeper, made us a wonderful and yummy breakfast. I highly recommend you come check it out yourself!

Beautiful Historic Inn

My husband and I stayed in Cape May off-season and had a wonderful overnight stay at the John Wesley Inn. Bonnie was welcoming and helpful but also respected our need for privacy and some much needed rest and relaxation. Bonnie and Lance's restoration of the historic Stockton cottage was tasteful and an obvious labor of love. Our room was very nice and the all-season fireplace made it extra cozy and inviting. The street was quiet and very convenient, easy walk to restaurants and the beach. Breakfast was simply delicious. We would definitely recommend the John Wesley Inn !

Spectacular Stay!!!

My wife and I stayed at the John Wesley from 18-20 December, and it was absolutely spectacular! Bonnie tends to every detail and it is an absolutely beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Bonnie is a fabulous Inn Keeper, talks to each person individually, and makes you feel like you are visiting family. The rooms are beautiful, and the breakfasts were amazing. Bonnie makes everything herself and just wants anyone that stays to feel like they are part of her family. I would recommend the John Wesley Inn to anyone that wants to stay in Cape May, close to everything, and be wrapped in a feel of luxury and beach feel all at the same time!

A Place to Visit in Cape May.

The John Wesley is a welcoming Bed and Breakfast, bringing out the Victorian charm in typical Cape May fashion. The hosts Bonnie and Lance are very accommodating and attentive to the needs of their guests. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! If cleanliness and comfort are priorities on your list, the John Wesley will exceed your expectations. A great place to visit time and time again.
