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.

Joanne's review

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.

Great innkeepers! Very helpful but respected your privacy. Breakfast was awesome. Beautiful property that is clean and well maintained. Perfect location with off street parking.

Great stay in Cape May

The Mooring B & B is in a terrific location as you can walk to everything and you are a stone throw away from the beach.Vince greeted us at the door and was kind and informative. He checked in with all the guests (as he saw them) periodically to make sure everything was OK. The breakfast was scrumptious! They have a wonderful yogurt dish with honey, granola and fruit. Every morning we had a choice of 3 items and a meat. It was plentiful. Our room was spacious. Our only issue was with the shower in our bathroom. It was a claw foot bathtub/shower which can be a bit difficult to get in and out of. The issue was regulating the water temperature. It got quite hot. Other than that, the room was wonderful. We will definitely come back again, but perhaps stay in a different room with a more modern shower.

Cape May One More time

Best value and best B&B owners, what more can one ask

Tasteful and Welcoming

We experienced a lovely two-night stay with family. The rooms were spacious and beautiful. Everything was sparking clean - tough to do in Victorians. One block back from the beach. Rooms were exceptionally reasonable in price due to construction next door during the day. Good chance for an affordable stay close to the beach. On-sight parking. Staff friendly and helpful.

Best B&B to stay in Cape May

5 on July 20, 2014

This was our second time at The Mooring and we really love staying there. Vince greeted us by our names when we arrived, asked if we needed help with our luggage and showed us to our room. Breakfasts are extra-special and not hurried. One night we got caught in a rain storm coming back from dinner with no umbrellas and our clothes were soaked. Next day we mentioned something to Vince and he took our clothes and dried them in the clothes dryer -- going above and beyond the call of duty. This is what Leslie and Vince do at The Mooring. Treat yourself to a wonderful getaway at this B&B, you will be glad you did.

Wonderful B&B, Great Hospitality!

My wife and I stayed at The Mooring for 3 nights in early July. We stayed in room 8 which is a suite - nice bedroom, separate sitting room, and semi-private veranda. We loved that there was always a really nice breeze coming from the beach, and two large ceiling fans, so we never needed the air conditioner! Our only complaint is that the room was on the dark side - we needed to turn all the lights on during the day and even then it was still darkish. The B&B was very nicely furnished/decorated - I loved the artwork, the furniture, the accents. etc. And it was immaculate. I kept remarking how the wood floors gleamed! I enjoyed the layout of the dining room - nice to sit at a table for two. The breakfasts were delicious, with fresh fruit and pastries available each morning, along with Greek yogurt with honey and granola, and a choice of two entries - one sweet, and one savory. Coffee available all day long, breakfast served until 10 am, and iced tea and a snack served in the afternoon (cookies all 3 days we were there). Use of a shared refrigerator and microwave. Didn't use the microwave but stored beverages in the refrigerator. Vince is very friendly and exudes hospitality - from greeting us by name when we arrived, to always telling us to let him know if we needed anything, to sharing info on restaurants, etc. Overall, a wonderful stay.
