Guests enjoy 12 antique filled rooms and suites, three parlors, spacious gardens and rocker filled verandahs. Breakfast and afternoon tea daily. Beautiful beaches, historic attractions, biking, birding, golf, and tennis.

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.

Overall it was a nice stay. Shower space too small. Bathroom door allowed for no privacy-louvered. Would be nice to have bicycles and a bigger TV. Service was very good. Night innkeeper very friendly and helpful.

We have been staying at the Mainstay since 1992 when the original owners Tom and Sue Carroll sat down to breakfast and regaled tales of old Cape May residents. Over the years we tried other Bed & Breakfasts over the years but the Mainstay is over the top in elegance. The new owners, Pete and Ester were very friendly and made everyone feel comfortable and part of the B & B family. Diane, the Inn manager, offers up delicious breakfast and afternoon tea and will make all of your dining reservations for you. The Mainstay Inn boasts 6 striking bedrooms, a massive sitting room with gas fireplace, a dining room with original China dishes and a grand wraparound porch with swings and rocking chairs. The Mainstay is situated close to both beach and the Washington Mall and within walking distance of award-winning restaurants. Without a doubt, The Mainstsy should become your main stay in Cape May!
