Our stay included an amazingly gorgeous room with the ambiance and romance I could only imagine , I thought , in my dreams to a 4 o'clock tea time where my boyfriend and I were introduced to fabulous baked goods, cheeses and crackers and vegetabl trays with dips along with the aroma and taste of the most pleasureable teas all set up in a beautiful dining room. The sitting room was where we took our tea and plates and indulged in conversation and met new and interseting friends. The entire night was so pleasant and the staff was very personable. The next morning was a breakfast fit for royalty. It was delicious. We loved our stay so very much, we got the 2 night package as a Christmas gift for my boyfriends parents who also fell in love with the Mainstay. I would recommend it to everyone!!!

This inn is a gem. My sister and I had the pleasure of staying there Dec 26 & 27. The staff is friendly and warm. The room, "Clara Barton", was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and ample and very pleasant tea time as well. Great location also, can't wait to go back!

Any time I've been in Cape May, I've sought to walk past the Mainstay Inn, dreaming about what it looked like inside. Well, my mom and I finally spent a weekend at the Inn and it didn't disappoint! I could write endlessly about the physical beauty of the Inn inside and out. Our room was well appointed; the food abundant and delicious; and the innkeepers friendly and comfortable. It was a pleasure and an honor to be a guest there. I will no doubt reserve at the Inn again in the future. It's definitely one of Cape May's true gems.

We had a wonderful time the weekend before Christmas. We had never stayed in a Cape May bed and breakfast, and did not know what to expect. We stayed in the Main building. The Inn was not very crowded so the staff was not taxed, but the service was friendly, the breakfast was terrific.

My hubby and I have been staying at the Mainstay Inn over the past few years and dearly love everything about this Inn! The manager and staff are all very friendly and helpful with anything a guest might need; the Inn is exceptionally beautiful both inside and out; and the Inn is located in a beautiful part of Cape May ~ just a couple blocks from the beach and a couple blocks from the shopping district and superb restaurants in town. If you are looking to step back in time and stay in a beautiful Victorian inn, then please book a reservation at the Mainstay Inn!
