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.

My wife and I have stayed in many B&B's over the years. This was one of the best. Susan the owner was very nice and could not have done anything better to make our stay more enjoyable.


A Lovely Cape May Interlude

5 on June 17, 2016

It was our first trip to Cape May and we stayed 2 nights mid-week before the busy season. It was a great getaway. We had a very lovely time at the Mission Inn. The room was very clean, and the bed very comfortable. Susan and Ray could not have been more accommodating. They aim to please. I would definitely recommend The Mission Inn.


Cape May Summer Fun 2016

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed another stay at The Mission Inn. Susan and Raymond made our stay delightful. They always go out of their way to make our visit very special. The Inn is impeccable and really something very special.


Always outstanding

Just wrapped up our 3rd stay at the Mission Inn and it continues to be outstanding. Every detail is thoughtfully arranged with guest comfort in mind. The rooms are gorgeous- each hand painted with unique detail. Romantic touches are everywhere, including in room fireplace and gorgeous two person shower. The breakfast and afternoon hors devours are always delicious and beautifully prepared. The amenities are great- beach chair service and a fridge stocked with wine to name a couple. And Susan, the Owner, creates a warm and friendly atmosphere. Absolutely One of my favorite places to stay.


Awesome find in Cape May

This was our first B&B stay and I think it probably ruined any other stays that are not "The Mission Inn". The Hosts were absolutely awesome. They are extremely friendly and always looking to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. The Breakfasts was out of this world and the town was a very nice relaxing couples town. We will be back because any other B&B I fear will be a disappointment.


What a great weekend away!

My wife and I celebrated our 38 wedding anniversary at the Mission Inn over the Memorial Day weekend. Raymond and Susan, the proprietors, were excellent and made our stay memorable. The Breakfast meals were excellent and they also provided evening snacks. The Mission is is located a block from the beach and they provided us with beach passes to use as well as umbrellas and chairs. Would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone


The finest Bed & Breakfast in America

The utmost attention to every detail and the highest level of hospitality you will find anywhere. I proudly refer to the Mission Inn as my "second home". The innkeepers have an extraordinary commitment to service. You will be treated like family.


Absolutely Perfect

We just returned home from another visit to the Mission Inn in Cape May. This is our 4th visit and each time is perfect. When Susan greets you at the door with a "welcome home" she truly means it. The Mission Inn is our home away from home in New Jersey. There are so many great reviews and everything they say about The Mission Inn is true. From the rooms, to the service, to the cleanliness there is perfection. We think the real difference, however, is in the hosts, Susan and Ray. They are the most gracious and welcoming people we have ever met at any B & B, hotel, or resort at which we have stayed. They are 100% genuine; no pretense at all. We feel like family. We would be remiss if we didn't give a shout out to Leslie the cook who comes up with spectacular breakfasts every time. Her meals are creative and delicious. The afternoon snacks are unbelievable. Thank you Susan and Ray. You can count on us returning soon.


LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

We absolutely love the Mission Inn. We recently stayed for the second year and will continue the annual tradition. The inn is gorgeous. Rooms are beautiful and common areas are warm and inviting. Susan and Ray are the most gracious hosts and make everyone so comfortable. When you check in, they welcome you "home". Staff is wonderful and breakfast is outstanding! Afternoon "snacks" are more like an array of appetizers, red and white wine before you go out for dinner. When you return, there is a freshly home made dessert waiting for you. We will make the Mission Inn our annual tradition. Carol & Vince, May 2016
