The only thing we overlook, is the ocean. Our Craftsman-style Inn, circa 1915, includes many of the design features commonly associated with Craftsman homes: Bright, spacious rooms, open plan dining and living areas and an inglenook with a fireplace. Window benches to view the beach and beautiful natural wood floors. In keeping with the Arts and Crafts aesthetic we have decorated with furniture from the Stickley Company that is complemented by Mission-style lanterns and art pottery. Genuine hospitality and good food are served up daily. So, plan a trip soon. We can't wait to see you!

Beautiful Venue

4.6 on January 21, 2015

My fiance` and I stayed here during a weekend in January. We wanted a nice quiet weekend and that's exactly what we experienced. Jodie was great, he catered to our needs for breakfast and provided us with suggestions for dinner, etc. We had a much needed wonderful and relaxing weekend. Thank you for everything!

Beautiful Cape May B&B

4.4 on January 07, 2015

Very nice. We stayed the weekend before Christmas to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Right on the beach in a very quiet area of Cape May. This would be great in the summer.

A Birthday Stay

Can't wait to visit again.......

Rhythm of the Sea in October

4.6 on October 19, 2014

The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food was excellent.

A Remarkable Establishment

5 on October 16, 2014

This is a very well kept B&B that is just a few feet from the beach at Cape May. The staff is very customer focused and they can't do enough for their guests. The room we stayed in was decorated with mission style furniture and the bed was extremely comfortable. Huge windows allow you to overlook the picturesque Atlantic Ocean. The dining setting is not formal but intimate. The other guests we sat with seem to enjoy their stay as much as we did. I would stay at the Rhythm of the Sea again.

Anniversary Weekend Celebration

3.2 on October 05, 2014

We stayed the weekend of September 19 - 21, 2014. We arrived & there was Iced Tea & cookies waiting for us. The room & bathroom was clean. This B & B is very convenient to the beach & the weather was great. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee, reading & just relaxing. The breakfast was ok I ate it but I would not have ordered Waffle with Whipped & Strawberries, Eggs Benedict I do not care for, Blueberry Pancakes would have been better with Blueberry Syrup. I did not eat the Turkey Bacon & would not eat that anywhere. The breakfast could be improved or maybe another choice. We would stay here again because it is so convenient. We had a good time!

Perfect Stay! Would return in a heart beat

5 on September 30, 2014

The place was great. Perfect Location to everything. The room was very nice and simple. The food was delicious in the mornings and they had fresh fruit every day to enjoy when you needed a snack. Everyone was super nice and helpful. They offered beach chairs and bikes to use daily. My wife and I stayed for our 1 year anniversary and we plan to be back a few more times in the future. I would rate this place 10 out of 10!

Clean good value

3.8 on September 28, 2014

Only disappointment was the bathroom was tiny in room 1 great views however. The staff was excellent. Service good. Prices Steep for off season. Good for weekend or mid week getaway. Lots to do they provide bikes and beach equipment. Would go back.

Beautiful Spot

3.8 on September 21, 2014

The staff was friendly and accommodating. The porch and sun room was a favorite spot to relax in the early mornings and late afternoon to enjoy the beach views and watch the night sky. We liked that it was not too close to town, but easily accessible with restaurants within walking distance. Cape May beaches are lovely.
