We stayed in the cottage and had the place to ourselves. The next time we would like to stay in the main house. The antiques and furnishings are unbelievable. Diane made us feel at home. We will be back.

I love the Main Stay Inn! Every time I stay, I feel like I am stepping back into time. My room is always clean, and the service is excellent. I will continue to book my stays at the Main Stay for all future trips to Cape May. Furthermore, it is in close proximity to shops, fabulous restaurants, and the beach. For a true Victorian getaway, book your stay here! You will not be disappointed.

The Mainstay is a clean, beautifully maintained old Victorian. It is only 1-2 blocks to the beach( easy walk) , and close walking distance to town, shopping and restraunts. The staff I'd professional, friendly and very helpful. The little 'extras' they add really make a stay here extraordinary. ( ex: beach towels, beach chairs, off road parking, shower & changing area for late day check out, making dinner reservations at popular restraunts , etc.) Would definitely recommend & would return again myself:)

Nice atmosphere a but pricy. For the price the food could have been a bit more decadent , fresh squeezed juice and some pancakes and waffles would have topped off the breakfast portion very nicely. Overall very relaxing and intimate setting would certainly recommend

We have stayed at a number of hotels and B & Bs in Cape may over the past 20 years. This was the best. The property is in pristine condition, and packed with dazzling antiques. Just to see it is a reason to come to Cape May and stay here. In addition, the service was exceptionally friendly and accommodating, and it is within an easy walk of nearly every place one would want to be in Cape May. New owners plus mostly longtime staff, all very dedicated to the hotel and the community.

Upon arriving,, met new owner, Pete & felt very welcome. it's been our 4th vacation there & can't imagine another greater stay. First thing I noticed were the tea cups (instead of mugs) set out with lovely tea pots if you wanted to have a pot of tea. Everything is available--beach chairs, bikes, towels, a shower, etc. & a nice outdoor Table & chairs & umbrellas where you can also eat...it was great!
