Comfortable elegance in a classic Second Empire inn, the only Cape May B&B originally built as a guest house. We offer eight uncluttered guest rooms and two suites, each with period furnishings, private bath, flat-screen TV and air conditioning ... a few with ocean views & two with private porch. The Mooring is in Cape May's historic district, one building back from the beach and an easy walk to the restaurants and shops of this small town. Complimentary on-site parking available for all premium rooms and suites. Free street parking available for the two standard rooms.

We have stayed at The Mooring every August for our anniversary for the past five years. Before finding The Mooring we stayed at a few other B&B's in Cape May. After staying at The Mooring we knew we found "our place". Vince and Leslie are wonderful hosts. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. The breakfast is incredible. You have a variety of dishes to choose from and seating is arranged so that their are two people per table which gives you privacy. Vince has gone out of his way to make our stay at the Mooring very enjoyable. We look forward to going back every year. We highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in Cape May! Lisa & Patrick Bradley Harrisburg,PA

My favorite place in Cape May!

I adore The Mooring! Leslie and Vince are beyond wonderful. The bed and breakfast itself is beautiful but Leslie and Vince make it exceptional! Vince is the guy to go to for recomendations for restaurants and anything really. They make you feel like family. This was our second year with them and I would never stay at another place. Also, the breakfasts are to die for! Vince is a real foodie and it shows. I also appreciate the fact that thy use a lot of local products in their cooking. My best friend and I had a great time and we will be back next year!

Wonderful B&B

Excellent B&B. Vince is more than accommodating. He is so upbeat and even remembers you name. Breakfast is a treat, location is fantastic (one block from the beach), rooms are very nice, immaculately kept. You won't be disappointed.

Great place to stay

This was our second visit to the Mooring. The hosts are gracious, the breakfasts are yummy and the place is immaculate. In a great location, close to the beach. Wish we have stayed longer.

Wonderful Bed & Breakfast!

What a wonderful place to stay! My husband & I stayed here last year. We enjoyed it so much we came back again for our vacation this year. It has a quiet yet friendly atmosphere. They have the most delicious breakfasts here! OMG the best!The innkeepers, Leslie & Vince, are very attentive and helpful. They guide you in the right direction for whatever you may need. They are super! Great location- a block to the beach and close to lots of shopping and restaurants!

Every time we stay at the Mooring we have a delightful time. The Breakfasts were fantastic and throughly enjoyed afternoon tea. Vince and Lesley are great innkeepers and very attentive to our needs. They truly create a "Cape May moment".

My husband and I have been vacationing at the Mooring for about 5 years now. We usually go in July, but did go in July and October of 2012. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else; we wish the Inn were open year round! Leslie and Vince, the innkeepers, have become like family! They are so welcoming, accommodating and genuinely really nice people. The rooms are always clean and when the inn is closed, they are renovating and keepimg up with what needs to be done that can't be done when guests are staying there. I can't forget to mention their breakfasts. They always have cut-up fresh fruit and either homemade scones or muffins on the buffet along with coffee, tea and two juices. They give you a choice of an egg dish or a sweet dish, both of which change daily and are always delicious and satsfying! Our stays at their inn have been a welcome respite from the daily grind of everyday life. We never want to leave, but leave we must looking forward to when we can return. I would absolutely recommend staying at the Mooring when in Cape May.
