Never disappointed

5 on September 09, 2014

This was our second year at the John Wesley B&B. We'll be going again next summer.The location to the beach is perfect - maybe a block away. The B&B is immaculate, and the breakfasts never disappoint. Very accomodating.

Perfect getaway!

Felt at-home right away! Our stay was like visiting family .... Without the drama! We felt welcome right and never wanted for anything. Compliments to Bonnie for creating such a warm atmosphere. Would definitely visit again.

Beautiful B&B in Cape May,N.J.

I found this adorable B&B while searching online for a B&B to stay with my visiting sister.It is in a perfectly close location for enjoying the beach and shopping. A nice perk is the off street parking. Check out the Stockton Room #1 as it has its own private large porch!! The Innkeepers live there and are so very nice as well as their staff. You are made to feel like a part of their family! You will be served a beautiful breakfast to start your relaxing day in Cape May!!!

Home Away From Home

The JW Inn is a great home away from home. It is conveniently located in Cape May. A block from the beach and a few blocks to the CM Walking Mall. Breakfasts were delicious and the home is meticulously cared for by the owners.

Charming B&B

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B! Nice rooms, pleasant atmosphere, good food and a great host! We would not hesitate to stay there again next time we visit Cape May.

Beautiful John Wesley Inn

The John Wesley Inn is a delightful place to stay. Within walking distance of so many things, beautiful porch and garden. We have been there twice and will definitely be back. Loved Bonnie and Lance!

Stay at John Wesley Inn

We found the inn lovely, with cozy rooms. Bonnie is a warm and charming hostess, who joins her guests at breakfast. Breakfast itself was delicious and is individually served to each guest. Highly recommended!

Beautiful B&B

4.4 on July 30, 2014

I stood in the Stockton room (balcony room) for a long weekend in July. The room was large and filled with beautiful antique furniture, the picture of the room hardly represents its charm. The whole house is charming and the inn keeper is sweet and attentive. Her breakfast was delicious on both days, the whole experience left us warm and fuzzy inside! Will definitely go back to Cape May and stay at the John Wesley Inn again.

Stayed for our 30th anniversary late June/early July. Our first time to Cape May. The John Wesley Inn was excellent. We enjoyed the Inn, the time with the owners and other guests as well. I highly recommend this Inn.

Great place!
