This was our 1st visit to Cape May. We had a wonderful time while there. Not sure how we "picked" The Mainstay Inn...But we feel really lucky to have stayed there. Can I tell you this??? Everyone else staying there - has come back for several years. THEY KNEW EACH OTHER! How often does that happen? We knew no one when we arrived...it was a friendly crowd though. They shared suggestions for activities/ dinner/ entertainment. Not sure I mentioned this...the Inn is so beautiful inside w/ a wonderful porch . Rocking chairs & Hammock are very popular. Short walk to the beach. The owner was onsite along w/ Innkeeper & staff. We enjoyed meeting everyone. We will return, of course, and we won't be the "newbies" next time.

Our second stay here. Stayed on third floor of the cottage. You can see the ocean from a window. AC worked great. Smaller bathroom than we are used to. We will make reservations earlier to get a first floor or 2nd floor room. Dianne and Tracy go out of their way to accommodate you. We will be back!

The Inn and staff were wonderful. I was not expecting such a sumptuous breakfast, which could be enjoyed in the dining room or outside on the porch overlooking the lovely garden. I was also thrilled that they served tea in the afternoon in beautiful China cups, with a delicious array of cakes, fruits, veggies and cheeses. It was a wonderful experience.

Unpredictable weather but a relaxing stay. Met the owners, lovely people and the staff was great. Would love to go back again.

The inn is elaborately and beautifully furnished. Our room was bright and the bathroom was spotless. Things like water and toiletries were thoughtfully provided. We were there in early May, before the summer season, but the afternoon tea and breakfast were delicious and nicely served. There is nothing bad to say.

A perfect, romantic getaway for our wedding anniversary. Would not change a single thing except to stay longer next time. We stayed in the Decatur room. We'd come back to the Mainstay in a heartbeat.
