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.

Great Location and Great People

4.0 on April 17, 2014

This was our first time staying at a B&B and we enjoyed it. The room was great. The staff/owners were great as well. They made it a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. No pressure to socialize with guests, just to be there, come and go as we please, and do what we feel like. Food was great and so were the afternoon snacks.


Look no further for the best B&B in America

Susan and Ray are the finest innkeepers. The Mission Inn is THE place to stay on Cape May. Every facet of this place is fully devoted to customer service and comfort. The rooms are amazing, the food is gourmet and your every need will be attended to. Far better than several 5-star hotels we've stayed at.

Stay in luxury with dreams of California Missions playing in your head. All 8 rooms are styled after a different mission and all are a perfect treat for the senses. The owners, Susan & Ray are the perfect hosts and there can not be a better experience in Cape May. We were so impressed with everything that we made another reservation for July before leaving.


A wonderfull weekend

We recently returned from a late-February stay at the Mission Inn. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, but knew that it was something we had wanted to try. Though a bit skeptical about staying at a non-Victorian style b&b, the reviews on this website, and many others, made us feel very comfortable in our decision to stay at the Mission Inn. First, the rooms were impeccable - bright, roomy, and very clean! The common areas were warm and inviting. The common “kitchen” was stocked with anything you might need, including many different beverages and delicious cookies baked daily. We were there for two delicious breakfasts. The food was presented as if it were being served in a 5-star restaurant. Our breakfasts included an egg pizza and stuffed French toast. Also, in the afternoon, appetizers were served in the solarium. The appetizers are homemade, but were also quite tasty! Susan went out of her way to make sure there were a variety of different items. We had arrived with no plans for dinner and Susan was able to make wonderful recommendations for places in Cape May and we had delicious dinners on both evenings. Perhaps what was most impressive about our stay were the other guests. We were lucky enough to dine with 3 different couples at breakfast. Each of the couples was there for their 4th, 5th or 7th time! That spoke volumes to us about the Inn! Upon our arrival Susan found out that we were expecting our 2nd baby. Mission Inn hosts many “babymoons” for parents with little ones on the way. Susan and Ray left a bag full of goodies – including pickles – for our now-expanding family on the day of our departure. What a special addition to an already relaxing weekend. Susan and Ray were wonderful hosts making us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We were pampered and spoiled the entire weekend. We cannot wait until we are able to return.
