I had reserved a lovely room at Peter Shields Inn, but unfortunately, the room was in disrepair according to the staff and they could not rent it to us upon our arrival. They did offer to find us another room at a comparable B&B and were able to do that in the same area. So it all worked out. They were very apologetic. I will try again at another time to stay at Peter Shields Inn, since it does look lovely. I am unable to rate, so I gave all a five star.

The old windows in our room didn't seal very well and the heater was unreliable, but those are our only complaints. The restaurant was outstanding and the included breakfast was excellent. The location right on the beach is great. It's about a mile of pleasant walking to downtown.

We loved the PSI, it was a delightful break in the hectic Christmas season. Cape May was decorated beautifully and the shops were great!

Interesting historic and beautiful B&B right across from the beach in Cape May. Very friendly and helpful staff made us feel at home. They provided loaner bikes and beach equipment and made our wedding anniversary trip a memorable one.

Peter Shields is a beautiful old mansion made into a B&B. Service is friendly. Umbrellas, bikes, beach chairs are provided. The dinning room is spread out throughout the downstairs. Grand piano in lobby provides music throughout. Kahil Gunther is a delight to hear. My only reservation is the lack of reservation for specific tables. Porch tables are on a first come first serve basis. I think guests should have first choice of tables.

We stayed in room 6, very nice and quiet, even though they had 2 weddings going on. Staff very good, breakfast, wine and cheese very good. I would stay here again, loved the beach right across the street,

We recently visited PSI on our way home from Virginia to NJ with our new car. We had the pleasure of trying two rooms: Room 1 on the second floor facing the ocean and Room 6 on the third floor. The first is lovely and good sized, but subject to more sounds of other guest socializing in the second floor sitting room or from the dining room below if they happen to have an unusually late crowd, which I'm told is not common. We moved to the much quieter third floor on our second night and very much enjoyed the smaller, freshly renovated room. Our one dinner at their famed restaurant was outstanding. They deserve all the accolades!

My husband and I went for a mini honeymoon. We only stayed one night but we fell so in love with Peter Sheilds Inn that we wanted to stay longer. Our room was beautiful. The staff was very helpful and everything within the house was perfect. We loved our stay so much that we are looking forward to returning next year!

We completely enjoyed our stay at PSI. If you stay there you must have Dinner at least once. Take advantage of their PSI Love You dinner special. The staff was fantastic going out of their way to make sure your stay was wonderful. Don't forget to participate in the wine and cheese get together in the afternoon. Everyone has a blast.

We were delighted to be across the street from the ocean. The inn offers bicycles, beach chairs, towels and umbrellas for guest use. We took full advantage of them. The breakfast was outstanding. It was great to have a choice and also enjoy the ocean view on the screened-in porch. Any questions were addressed immediately. The wine and cheese in the afternoon provided another opportunity to meet some very nice guests. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay,

The staff was wonderful and helpful. We enjoyed having breakfast and dinner on the porch with an ocean view. We used both the bikes and the chairs/umbrellas for the beach, nice touch.

We came for our 3rd anniversary--- and it was a great weekend. We stayed in room 6 and though the regular AC was out, the did have a window unit in that worked fine (though we no longer had an ocean view). The breakfast on the deck every morning was perfect. We took full advantage of the bikes, chairs, and beach towels they have to offer (loved that we didn't have to pack our own!) We did dine at the restaurant on Saturday night- it happened to be restaurant week, so keep this in mind, but they were so busy that we were very rushed it seems. We were in and out in just over an hour for a 3 course meal--- I would have preferred a more leisurely paced meal, but the food was outstanding. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed as well but again, this could have been due to being completely booked for restaurant week. Loved the wine and cheese every afternoon at 4:30...don't show up too late! we came at 5:30 and all the wine was gone :( Overall amazing stay---can't beat the location across from the beach! It is a bit pricey but worth it! Great Inn and we will certainly be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Peter Shields Inn. Everyone was helpful, accommodating and friendly; we enjoyed our use of the bikes and beach chairs--and the breakfasts were fantastic, both the quality of the food and the ocean view--the covered porch was lovely, even in the rain. Thanks for the hospitality! Mike and Dawn

Peter Shiels is a lovely facility located across from the Cape May beach so offers a wonderful view of the ocean. inner at the Peter Shillds restaurant was great; however, we found the breakfast disappointing. There was only one entree offered with very little else available if you didn't want.

The PS Inn is a nice, adequate bed and breakfast in Cape May, NJ. I wouldn't say that it offers anything more or better than the many other B&Bs in Cape May. There really wasn't anything to complain about specifically, but likewise, nothing really to rave about or make me want to return to. I will say that the included 3 course dinner was exceptional and truly a nice bonus for staying in the month of April. Unfortunately it was clear that the chef in the evening is not the same person who cooks your breakfast, which was merely adequate. When I stay at a B&B I want exceptional service, a great breakfast, and get to know the Inn Keepers on a personal level. I don't think I ever met the owners/Inn Keepers, which was disappointing. While there was nothing deficient in our stay, my wife and I already agreed we would not be returning to the PSI for future Cape May visits.

We were 3 couples that rented 3 out of 9 rooms in this B&B. It was delightful in many ways! Upon arriving (check in at 2pm), the woman was very thorough and explanatory when giving us the keys and directions for our stay. My first impression of this B&B was glamorous and stately! It was extremely quiet in the B&B (not recommended for kids). We booked rooms 2,6,7. They were all equally nice & roomy. Each had private bathroom. Our bathroom was kind of small, but we made do just fine. We enjoyed wine, cheese, crackers, and veggies with dip at 4:30. That was nice! I just had to say the word and they refilled our bread promptly. We took the 5 min drive to downtown for a bit, then enjoyed dinner at the downstairs restaurant. It was superb! Very quiet BYOB and the meal hit all the right spots. There is a sitting area on the 2nd floor. We played cards there. There is also a complimentary snack room on the 3rd floor that offers cold sodas, water, chips, coffee, and homemade cookies. In the morning they serve complimentary breakfast from 8:30 to 10:00. It is made to order when you are ready and served on the enclosed porch. They served eggs, fruits, muffins, OJ, coffee, tea, yogurt parfait, bacon, sausage, ham. It was high quality and gourmet. Check out was at 11am. We finished it off with a walk on the beach before our departure. All in all it was a great stay and an incredible bargain since it included the wine & cheese, snacks, and breakfast. I highly recommend it! What a delight it was.

With our family scattered this year, we decided to spend Thanksgiving away from it all. We could not have chosen a better spot. The Inn is beautiful and the staff are very accomodating. Thanksgiving dinner was simply delicious. It felt like we were with family. We will definitely return to this gem by the sea.

Dear Jeff and Kathy, Bob and I had a most perfect two days in your most quintessential inn! The Lord was working hand in hand in making our stay the ultimate in luxury and relaxation. The sun, the beach, the food, the service, the walks, the guests and the time to be alone and quiet to celebrate the last 25 years together and the next 25, was beyond our expectations. All we missed was an outdoor shower in the Jeffrey Spa!!! So happy to share a birthday and our anniversary with you, jeff!! Hugs to Kathy who we missed seeing. kiera was exceptional in her cappucino skills!! The room was exceptional and God made sure the view was awesome! Blessings and thanks to you. Til we meet again, Anita and Bob Morro

Can't say enough about the beautiful time we had at the Inn! The staff was so helpful when we arrived with car trouble. Bridget and Megan guided us through the repair and even offered to drive us back to the inn from the service center. The amenities were by far the nicest we have ever experienced from any other inn and the food was delicious, both at breakfast and dinner. It was so lovely to spend the late afternoon sipping wine on the front porch, so relaxing and with such beautiful views! We loved having the use of the bicycles to get around town. We would love to come back one day, we didn't get to see enough of Cape May. Thanks for giving us such a wonderful time!

My sister and I went to the PSI because I had a B&B certificate and she turned 40 - so a celebration trip! We picked the Peter Shields Inn because of its ocean view and simple elegance, and we were not disappointed! We had ocean views constantly from the front porches, the upper sitting room, and our dormer room. We loved our quaint room which was quite roomy with 2 chairs to sit in. The staff was friendly and helpful at every turn. We met one of the owners while she was gardening and had a lovely chat with her. We loved sitting on the front porch talking with others and taking in the ocean views. We enjoyed using the bicycles and beach chairs provided by PSI. Our breakfast was scrumptuous - lemon riccota pancakes w/bacon or sausage. The decor is simple elegance at every turn. Beautiful vases of flowers, urns of flowers out front, and attractive and comfortable porch to enjoy. I was afraid when I saw the online photos, that it might be a stuffy environment, but that was hardly the case. The turndown service and cleaning staff were also very personable and helpful. We checked out at 11 am, but were free to still enjoy the inn's bicycles, chairs and porch. Thank you so much PSI for a truly memorable and relaxing stay.

Just spent 3 nights and 4 days in Cape May at the Peter Shields Inn, from the time we walked in the front door till we left, we were overwhelmed with fantastic service, great food - both for breakfast and dinner, just an outstanding stay. Our room faced the ocean, so we had a birds eye view each morning of the day ahead of us, we can't wait to go back. The staff made us feel like we were a King and Queen.

P.S.I. Is the perfect place to stay! THe free breakfast has included blueberry pancakes, scrambled eggs with tomatoes and herbs from their garden, fresh fruit etc. Our room overlooks the beach and we can see the sunrise from the four poster bed. Dinner is a gourmet delight with Cape May seafood presented beautifully. The chef will make things to your liking, I have allergies. We enjoyed riding the bikes that are provided free also.

We spent three days at the Peter Shields in July 2010 and had such a nice visit. The location, view, and kindness of everyone was exceptional. The bubble jets in the bathtub did not work unfortunately, but next time we hope to enjoy that experience in Room 1.
