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.

Cape May One More time

4.6 on July 21, 2014

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

Tasteful and Welcoming

5 on July 20, 2014

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

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.

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.

The Mooring is a well kept airy B&B, decorated very nicely. The rooms are spotless and comfortalbe. The breakfast is always delicious with options of a savory and a sweet, as well as an array of fruit and breads. Afternoon snack is a light sweet - perfect with beverage or coffee / tea. The front porch consistently has a lovely breeze and is a pleasure to sit on, especially with an early morning cup of coffee. Vince and Leslie make the visit a pleasure -- and the location is fabuloso!!!!!!

Great trip to Cape May

The Mooring has a fantastic location only one block from a beach entrance and a few blocks from the pedestrian mall area of Cape May - we walked everywhere. The hosts are friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. Breakfasts are healthy and delicious - we recommend the yogurt with granola and fruit! Off-street parking is a major plus. Our room (No. 1) was large and bright with a very comfortable bed. Highly recommended!

Great rooms, good location!

After we parked we were each greeted my name by the innkeeper Vince. Wow! Our room was large, well appointed with a large bathroom. Vince is a true professional and takes great pride in ensuring that guests' needs are served. We would recommend this property to anyone seeking a seaside escape to beautiful and charming Cape May.
