It was my first stay at the Dormer house this weekend. It really was a perfect stay! The staff is SO friendly and accommodating. The rooms are typical B&B style rooms but spotless!! The porch is wonderful, I never wanted to leave their porch swing! The breakfast was delicious. We didn't make it to tea time unfortunately. Upon checkout the staff offered us to use their showers, beach chairs and come for afternoon tea time since we would be in the Cape May area. I thought this was so nice of them! The location is also perfect, walking distance to the beach, shopping and good eats! I have nothing but good things to say and in the future wouldn't stay elsewhere!

This was my first stay at The Dormer House. A great old B&B with all the charms of a bygone era and the conveniences of the internet era. Breakfasts were wonderful as were the treats during afternoon tea. Very comfortable rooms and very pleasant staff.

Our first time in Cape May...we found the staff very courteous, friendly and helpful. The room was very nice as advertised. Food was delicious. Location was great...just a few blocks from the beach, and a few from the shops and eateries. Would definitely go back to the Dormer House...Steve N

We have not been to the Dormer House for more than ten years. We used to stay here regularly (summertime) when we lived in the East (now live in the SW). The B&B is still a very pleasant place to stay while at the Shore. The food and service were excellent, and the porch is a very relaxing place to spend the evening hours. We will not wait ten years for a return visit!

We had originally not planned on going anywhere this year on our vacation week, but last minute decided to see what was available in Cape May. Not having ever done the B&B thing in NJ, we headed to the internet. We found one room available at the Dormer House. The reviews looked promising, so we gave it a try. From the initial phone call all we can say is wow, what a nice experience. We did not get to meet Lucille & Dennis during our stay, but the staff we did meet was very helpful and polite. They went out of there way to accommodate us.Our room was very clean, and the bed very comfortable. The breakfast and afternoon treats were delightful. This is now our favorite B&B. Can't wait to come back again. Definitely met our expectations.

This was our 6th visit to the Dormer House and we just love it there! The rooms are nice, the front porch is just a wonderful place to sit and relax, and the breakfasts are delicious!! Lucille, Dennis, and Diane are terrific. We consider it our home away from home. Jill and Kevin

We enjoyed the Dormer House very much. It was a nice getaway with tranquil moments. The breakfasts were varied and perfect. They were enjoyable as you could interact with everyone or you could remain with your partner. The house is lovely and close to the beach and so many restaurants.

My husband and I have been staying at the Dormer House for years and we are never disappointed. The rooms are lovely, food is delicious, staff is wonderful and Dennis and Lucille are delightful! Short walk to the beach and shops! We always look forward to our weekend getaways in Cape May!

Loved the outdoor showers (with shampoo, soap & conditioner provided!!! Yay!) The breakfast on the open-air front porch was delightful, followed by coffee/tea on the rockers. Birds came right up to us--so pleasant. Birding at the B&B--who knew? The staff was very accommodating of our special requests. Ample parking a huge plus. Convenient walk to beach, shops and restaurants.

My husband and I spent our 2 year anniversary here for a night and had such a wonderful, relaxing time. It was close to the beach where we walked and spent time on and close to the shopping and restaurant area. We really enjoyed coming back for tea and sitting on the outside porch which was so relaxing. Tea at night on the porch was another favorite thing for us there in the cool evening. Breakfast was very delicious and better than we could have expected. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We had a great stay and would return for sure.
