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.

Home is Where the Heart is

5 on July 20, 2014

Recently, we stayed with Susan at her home and she welcomed us right in. Most vacations are missed, but happily come to a close for sense of normality. Susan makes you feel as though her house is yours, and she maintains such amazing hospitality that your biggest worry is what to do for dinner. Our vacation was so relaxing that we did not want to leave and can't wait to go back, as her home feels like ours and we left a little piece of our heart with her and in Cape May. We are so happy to find her and her wonderful bed and breakfast.


An outstanding B and B

4.8 on July 14, 2014

A most luxurious B and B where the hosts take great care to cater to individual needs. The rooms are beautifully decorated and extremely well furnished and the breakfasts are exquisite. The hosts also provide many additional amenities such as beach chairs and towels to take to the beach and bicycles to ride that one would not normally expect with a B and B.


Best B&B in Cape May! (Not your normal B&B)

5 on July 10, 2014

While I have stayed at many B&Bs in Cape May, I would report that this one has the most unique look and feel. Breathtaking decor with a designer's flare- the artist who decorated the Mission Inn has made the stay feel like a vacation within a vacation. Susan and Raymond ensure that their guests feel 'special' - and the environment they establish inspires a warm feeling between residents who comfortably chat over the best afternoon hors d'oeuvres in Cape May. My husband and I were thoroughly impressed by the breakfast, the hors d'oeuvres, the rooms-- and the extra special oatmeal cookies (always available, along with coffee / beverages) and evening dessert. The rooms are in perfect condition, comfortable with plenty of space to hold your belongings. Thank you Susan and Raymond for your hospitality and your dinner recommendations! We will join you again at our next opportunity!

The Mission Inn was beautifully decorated. Each room was unique. Susan was a gracious host and made you feel like family. Her home was your home.


Seaside Honeymoon

5 on July 06, 2014

My husband and I had no doubt that we would be spending our honeymoon in Cape May. We are so happy that we decided to stay at the Mission Inn. The warm welcome from Susan, delicious and satisfying breakfast, and beautiful, romantic setting made for an unforgettable experience. We will definitely be returning to celebrate our anniversary each year! Thank you to the staff at the Mission Inn for making our time in Cape May effortless and completely enjoyable.


Once you stay at this inn you will never go anywhere else!

5 on July 04, 2014

Wonderful WELCOMING spotless inn-delicious gourmet breakfast and innkeeper who cater to any of your needs. You will want to come back every year. The Mission Inn sets every standard for how a bed and breakfast should be!


Would definitely go back

5 on July 04, 2014

We stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Susan and Raymond are fantastic and they make you feel so welcome. The breakfasts they prepared were out of this world. It was a totally relaxing experience staying there and we would definitely return for another visit. It was a 1 block walk to the beach and the weather was perfect. If you are looking to stay a few nights in Cape May, I would highly recommend staying at the Mission Inn.


Serene and Ted's

5 on July 03, 2014

Had a great time. The Mission is so relaxing and just like being at home. The service and the food were outstanding and you could not have had better hosts. We loved it and wouldn't go anywhere else


Wonderful getaway

5 on July 02, 2014

Our stay at the Mission Inn was delightful. The room was clean and comfortable and and we were warmly greeted and cared for by the innkeeper. She gave us excellent dinner recommendations and ideas of what to do around town since it was our first time there. The breakfast was perfect out on the veranda. Fresh and expertly prepared. The location can't be beat - a block away from the ocean - and it's a little out from the very center of shops, etc., so it was quiet without being too far removed from the action. I look forward to going back again sometime.


A Great Place to Get Away

5 on July 01, 2014

From the minute we arrived at the Mission Inn Susan Babineau-Roberts greeted us with a friendly smile and a degree of warmth one hopes for from these kind of establishments but doesn't always get. Susan was full of recommendations for things to do and places to eat and went so far as to call a number of restaurants to check on their hours for my wife and I. Our room was immaculate and the southwestern décor was pleasantly understated. There's a DVD player in each room with a collection of films available in the library found in the main sitting room. This spacious sitting area has a number of very comfortable chairs and sofas to sit there and read or just chill out, If you have a meal at the Mission Inn you have the option of eating outside on the veranda or in the dining room and the food is top notch. An added plus is that the Inn is located just two blocks from the beach and three or four blocks from Cape May's shopping promenade. The only negative for me is that I didn't have an opportunity to meet Susan's husband Raymond who is a fellow Civil War buff! Maybe next year.
