Relax in Cape May

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at the Luther Ogden Inn. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the Inn. The owners, Jan and Mark are lovely people; Jan makes delicious breakfasts! We highly recommend staying here and would stay again!

Jan and Mark, the inn owners, are very personable. The guest room was clean, bright and spacious. Jan's breakfasts were absolutely divine! They were not only delicious, but beautifully presented each morning. The inn is only two blocks from the beach and walking distance to the Washington Mall and many other shops and restaurants. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere and highly recommend the Luther Ogden Inn to future travelers.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the quaint Luther Ogden Inn. The location was perfect; within walking distance to the main promenade and gorgeous beaches; within driving distance from nature trails and historic landmarks. We had a wonderful time getting to know the friendly innkeepers and felt oh so at home. Would definitely recommend to a couple looking for a quiet, romantic getaway!

My husband and I enjoyed the holiday decorations at the Inn and around town during our stay Thanksgiving weekend. We especially enjoyed the conversation with Jan, Mark, and the other guests while we sat and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast which was exceptional.

Jan and Mark run a first-class establishment; homey atmosphere and very friendly. The breakfasts were "to-die-for." Jan is a truly superb chef. The Luther Ogden Inn offers great value and is at the top of my list for a return visit to Cape May.

Lovely B&B

Beautiful inn near the beach and center of town. Room was rather small, on the 3rd floor, and the sink was outside the bathroom, but it was comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast was delicious. It's only served at 9AM, so you're eating with all the other guests at the same table, which was quite enjoyable. The owners are very friendly and hospitable. It's also a good value.

We found this place online which always creates a small feeling of uncertainty. The owners were pleasant and hospitable in every way. Our room was clean and comfortable with the quietest A/C I have ever known. Easy walk to a beautiful beach. The town is exceptional. Owners of the many Victorian homes keep them in tip-top condition and attractively landscaped. Choice of many restaurants.

Staying with Jan and Mark was like staying with family. It was very comfortable and yet, no drama that normally comes with family! :-) The food was very tasty and they were accommodating to dietary needs. Jan is very knowledgeable about the area and was willing to suggest places to eat.

Great people, location, house and value

We stayed thurs anf fri and checked out on sat. The rooms were clean and neat. the house is historic, well kept and grand. Breakfast was top notch. Rooms are two flights up , could be difficult for some, but the stair landing offers a nice veiw of the neighborhood. I thought the pricing was very reasonable. highly recomended. Oh and the innkeepers were friendly, courteous and helpfull with local knowledge..
