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.

Amazing all around experience- a must stay on a visit to Cape May...

5 on December 24, 2014

The MIssion Inn was our first experience at a b&b. I am scared to book at another inn as I am scared that it will not compare...The inn was decorated tastefully for the holidays. Snacks and breakfast were prepared with love and they were accomodating to all of my food allergies (which is especially appreciated). We were welcomed and left with a feeling as though we were a part of their family... A must stay!


December visit

5 on December 20, 2014

This was our second December stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we enjoyed every minute! The Inn was beautifully decorated and the hospitality extended by Susan and Raymond reflects the warmth of the season! The Mission Inn is a wonderful place to relax, rest and enjoy the season!


Treat Yourself to an Unforgettable Experience

5 on December 19, 2014

My husband and I needed a quick getaway to unwind. After much research, I was surprised to find out that one of the top BandB's in the entire country was right in our state! I had to experience it for myself. The Mission Inn did not disappoint. Susan, her husband and staff lived up to their much deserved reputation and more. Susan is so welcoming and pleasant. She instantly makes you feel at home. She is very thorough and covers all necessary details including restaurant recommendations and reservations. Food: The breakfast was amazing both days and don't even get me started on how wonderful the late afternoon/evening hors d'oeuvres were!! The oatmeal cookies were to die for and my husband loved the brownies accompanied by a nice glass of port. Room:We stayed in the San Francisco de Asis room for two nights. We loved the room because it was spacious with high ceilings and a Jacuzzi tub. We melted into the bed every night thanks to the most comfortable mattress topper I have ever encountered. After touring the inn, I can see why people say every room is a good room. You can not go wrong with the Mission Inn! We can not wait to return and after hearing about our unforgettable experience, my parents want to stay here as well. I just wish we would have stayed one or two nights more!


Splendid and Welcoming Inn!

The best breakfast I've had at a B&B with an unbelievable selection of juices. The staff, the room, the grounds, and the food are all excellent. We are looking forward to returning soon.


Beautiful Cape May Inn

4.4 on October 15, 2014

The Mission Inn is clean, elegant and beautiful. The hosts, Susan and Ray are generous and helpful. We loved the unique breakfasts and other treats that the owners provide throughout the day. We would definitely recommend the Mission Inn as an excellent Cape May B&B.


"Exceptional B & B"

5 on October 15, 2014

As soon as you step into this Mexican motif B&B you feel the warmth and welcoming of the owners Susan and Ray. The rooms all have their own charm and are immaculate. The kitchen is well stocked and the breakfasts and snacks are above the ordinary. This is an experience you shouldn't miss.


Outstanding B&B
