Weekend stay at the John Wesley Inn

4.2 on July 02, 2014

We had a lovely and relaxing stay at the Inn. This Victorian B&B is ideally located in Cape May, close to all the attractions of the town and beach. Bonnie and Lance go out of their way to be helpful and gracious hosts. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. We will definitely be returning!

My wife and I have now stayed at the Wesley three times and we progressively enjoy ourselves more with each stay. Bonnie is a fantastic hostess always making us feel welcomed. The breakfasts are great and the rooms well attended. The John Wesley Inn reflects all of what's good about Cape May. If you want a relaxing and enjoyable seashore experience, please make every effort to book time at this charming B&B!

Great location, beautiful house filled with antiques exquisitely cared for, good breakfast made more enjoyable by eating at big table with all the other guests. Great hosts, great value.

Wonderful place to stay!

We stayed here for Memorial Day 2014 and can't say enough good things about the John Wesley Inn. We rented one of the apartments and it was impeccable! A perfect layout for our needs and the location of this inn exceeds all others. It is walking distance to everything you could possibly need in Cape May. We can't wait to stay here again.

That special getaway with a personal touch

5 on May 09, 2014

We've stayed at several B&B's and this one is top notch. Bonnie, our hostess was amazing. Treated us like family. And is a great cook to boot. Rooms were clean and the whole place just felt so welcoming. And the location is great. You can see the beach from the driveway and only a couple blocks from the Washington St Mall. We just got back and are already planning our next visit to include the John Wesley Inn

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.
