Great Stay in Beautiful Cape May

A very needed getaway turned out to be a very relaxing visit to Cape May. The Innkeepers were like old friends and accommodating in every way. Our room suited us perfectly. The breakfast each morning was fantastic. You will enjoy your stay.

Comfortable and welcoming

Wonderful place to spend a few days at the beach! Breakfast provided by hosts was excellent - and the beach is just a block away. Would definitely stay at this lovely Inn again- Jan and Mark are very gracious hosts.

Lovely old turn of the century house. The attic space has been converted into four guest rooms rather cleverly. Rooms could have been bigger but were comfortable enough for sleeping and showering etc. I enjoyed the ambiance of the place and the old fashioned courtesies shown by the owners. They enjoy sitting on their wrap around porch chatting with guests, and it was a most welcoming place in general. Breakfast is AT 9 am - don't be late! We sat eating and talking with other guests - most enjoyable overall. On the porch you can hear the ocean - two easy blocks away. No need to drive in the evening - we ate at two outstanding restaurants, both within easy walking distance. Nice touch in the room - a multi USB outlet, making a gadget nut like me very happy.

We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Our porch is great....everyone loves it! Just to clarify, our rooms were converted from a spacious 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen and living room. We were able to make 4 guest rooms and a Hospitality Room.

Very pleasant stay

Nice old turn of the century house. 4 rooms all on top floor. Breakfast was outstanding. Location superb for beach and walking to dining and shopping.

We had a very nice time staying at the Luther Ogden Inn. The room was quite comfortable although all bedrooms are on the third floor. (we got our exercise!) Although there was no enclosed shower outside, we had an enjoyable time with lovely hospitality.

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!

Innkeeper Response
