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.

The Mission Inn in Cape May, NJ

5 on May 26, 2015

Our recent off-season stay at the Mission Inn in Cape May, NJ quickly became our "annual anniversary getaway!" Innkeepers Susan and Ray are warm, welcoming, beyond accommodating - they and their staff were consistently friendly, went out of their way to go above and beyond in every conceivable - and many surprising! - ways. We will be back year after year, again and again - what lovely memories, the gorgeous accommodations, hospitality and feeling of instantly being enveloped in a familial home had us wishing we didn't have to leave!


A Beautiful Place by the Beach

Anyone who wants to be treated very special and welcomed should consider The Mission Inn.


Wonderful weekend

We had an amazing trip! The breakfast was DELICIOUS! First class service! Comfortable bed, beautiful beaches.


Another wonderful stay

My husband and I stayed at the Mission Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have stayed here before, and each visit exceeds our expectations. The rooms are cozy and comfortable, with all of the amenities you need from the basics (shampoo, soap) to the luxurious (robes, spa tub, fireplace). The breakfasts are delicious - often, we like to try different places for breakfast/brunch, but the chef who prepares the breakfasts here is so amazing, we really see no need to eat anywhere else. The hosts, Raymond and Susan, are absolutely wonderful. They make you feel so welcome, and are present but not overbearing. Truly the perfect balance when staying at a B&B. We truly enjoy every stay we have at the Mission Inn and can't wait to go back again soon.


An AMAZING B&B!

4.0 on March 28, 2015

The Mission Inn is a true gem! My fiancee and I stayed at the Inn 3/20/15 and 3/21/15. From the moment we made the reservation to the moment we walked out of the Inn's doors, everything exceeded our expectations. On the day we were supposed to check in, a snow storm hit northern NJ. We were afraid that we would not be able to make it to Cape May due to the weather. Ray, one of the owners, called us and assured us that he and his lovely wife Susan would be there waiting for us whenever we arrived. We arrived over an hour late, yet Ray and his wife accepted us with open arms. Upon arriving, Ray gave us a wonderful tour of the property. All of the rooms are gorgeous. Ray and Susan pay attention to every single detail and it definitely shows. We were staying in the Santa Barbara room. The Inn's common rooms are also lovely areas. The main common room has a refrigerator for guest use, a Keurig machine, sweet treats on the counter, a large selection of games and various movies to be used by the guests. After an unforeseen plumbing problem arose in our shower on the morning of our second day, Ray showed us the other available rooms and let us chose which one we would like to switch into. He was apologetic about the switch and made sure that we were comfortable in our new room, San Francisco de Asis. The San Francisco de Asis room has a gorgeous beamed ceiling and a two person jet tub. Breakfast each morning was delicious. You eat in a lovely room with the other guests staying at the Inn. Since I do not eat meat, Ray and Susan were gracious and made accommodations to my meals. The Mission Inn is true work of art. The property is immaculate and clean, the owners are welcoming and accommodating and the location is one of a kind (a two minute walk from the ocean!). We recommend it wholeheartedly without a single reservation!


Truly amazing gem!!

Thank you Susan and Raymond for making our 20th Anniversary memorable! We stayed in the San Diego de Alcala..loved our room. It was very spacious and immaculately clean! We got to see the other rooms...a couple of them where just a bit smaller but they were all gems! The owners were very friendly, informative and passionate about what they do. Last but not least, breakfast and hors d'oeuvres were delicious and very filling. Best B&B we have ever stayed in. San Francisco de Asis is our next stop!!! Can't wait! Ozzy & Heidi 3/2015


A little bit of perfection

My husband and I only had one night to get away from our hectic lives, and I'm so glad I found Susan and Ray and their gorgeous B and B. Our room was exquisite, the main part of the house is so inviting and our afternoon appetizers and Port Wine ( which is available all the time) was lovely. Susan and Ray are gracious, caring and warm people who truly care about their visitors and their home. It's a good walk to downtown, only a block from the beach (the quieter part). We will be back for sure. There's nothing quite like the Mission Inn in Cape May..a true must stay


Valintines weekend

Most years we go to the mission inn we are the only couple or one of just a few as we tend to go in the off season and are always treated like royalty. This trip the inn was full and Susan and Ray didn't miss a beat making everyone feel special and welcome from breakfast to hors d'oeuvres to the staff that keeps the inn spotless a perfect weekend.


Another wonderful stay

We had another fabulous time at The Mission Inn. Susan and Raymond are the best hosts anywhere. It's our home away from home! And we met some terrific new friends, too.


Perfect mini-honeymoon

5 on January 13, 2015

My husband and I only had a weekend to get away after we got married, and I wanted to make sure it was special. As soon as we arrived at the Mission Inn, I knew we had found the right place! Susan and Ray are so warm and helpful with anything you may need. Our room was beautiful…we loved the fireplace and the jacuzzi. Breakfast was amazing and the afternoon snacks and cookies too! By the end of our stay, it really did feel like home and we hated to leave. Already planning to come back for future anniversaries.
