The Mission Inn A Bed & Breakfast

1117 New Jersey Avenue , Cape May, NJ 08204 USA (Show map)

About

The Mission Inn with its sweeping verandas is one block from the Atlantic Ocean. Inspired by Nelson Z. Graves' journey to the Pacific coast at the turn of the century, The Mission Inn is a perfect example of California Mission style. Its stained glass windows, Flemish Gable and latticed veranda contribute to the warm feeling of this al fresco house. The Mission Inn offers you the grandeur of the Gatsby Era. For many years the Inn has been a mecca for Hollywood film start and Broadway show people. Enjoy the same ambiance as Ty Power, Erroll Flynn, Diana Barrymore, Gloria Swanson, and Robert Preston. When you stay an the Mission Inn, you feel that California state of mind. Her guests are colorful! If the walls could speak they would murmur a century of secrets. The Mission Inn is enchanting and fiercely romantic.

Best B&B Ever!

4.8 on July 19, 2016

Such thoughtfulness throughout. Service, food and cleanliness all a "10". I would never stay anywhere else in The Cape May area.


Wonderful Bed and Breakfast!!

The Mission Inn was AMAZING!!! It was clean, beautiful, and full of incredible detail. The hospitality was unparalleled, and we felt welcome from the first time we walked thru their doors. Our stay was lovely, and our only regret was that we could not have stayed longer! Breakfast was a special treat every day, with the chef (Leslie) tailoring meals to everyone's specific tastes/needs. The proprietor/owner (Susan) was so in tune to the needs of her guests, and she went out of her way to make 100% sure that we had everything we needed. He goal was nothing short of making sure every guest had a perfect stay.


Our happy place!

The Mission Inn is our home away from home,we had a wonderful time there and we try to go every year but would like to go more often. Susan, Ray and their staff always make it enjoyable. John and Lisa Arato, Staten Island, NY

Relaxing days at the beach

Susan works hard so you don't have to! She and Ray have anticipated all your needs and provide a welcoming and comfortable experience. The friendly and superior service makes a difference! Beautiful, clean beach with chairs and umbrellas provided just one block away. Cruiser bikes (it is flat!) make it easy to tour the Victorian neighborhoods. If I didn't live 3000 miles away, I would be a regular. Just lovely.


Always the best

We have stayed at the Mission Inn at least three times and it gets better each time. It is like being home. Susan and Ray are the best. They make you feel like family. There is nothing that need that they don't have ....towels, bikes, chairs and umbrellas at the beach, great afternoon tea (or wine which is always in the frig if you want it). It was three years since our last visit but it won't be that long again really missed them.


Amazing Time at the Inn

Everything about the Inn was wonderful. From the hospitality of the hosts to the accommodations and food, we could not have asked for more. As soon as we can, we will be back.


Wonderful B & B
