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


Historic Mansion by the beach

4.8 on August 14, 2013

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.


Seaside elegance without stuffiness

5 on July 14, 2013

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.


Recent Stay June 9 - 2013 - 3 nights

5 on June 13, 2013

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,


A Very Special Place To Stay in Cape May

5 on May 08, 2013

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!


Perfect Little Getaway

4.4 on April 21, 2013

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!


Great Offseason Getaway

4.8 on January 15, 2013

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.


Cape May getaway

4.2 on October 10, 2012

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,


Lovely Stay

4.6 on June 26, 2012

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.
