Renewed love in Cape May

5 on January 27, 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Wilbraham Mansion. To say we were delighted with the rooms and service is an understatement. We were able to stay in a beautiful, modern room with all the amenities (Jacuzzi tub, double headed shower, fireplace, ...). Then we were able to dine in the beautiful Mansion and enjoy old world charm. The owners could not have been more friendly and helpful.

September getaway

3.0 on October 06, 2012

First time in Cape May. Enjoyed our stay at Wilbraham. Clean, quiet rooms. Short walk to shopping, etc. Front porch is perfect for after dinner drink and relaxing.

1st time at a bed and breakfast

3.0 on August 10, 2012

This place is nice and clean. We stayed in suite 301 for two nights. The elevator is quite loud. The room is huge and comfy. Overall we liked it. We are even heading back there next week. I love the fact that they have an indoor heated pool, which is open 24/7. Breakfast was good. It was different both mornings. Tea time wasn't bad either. The owners are welcoming, which is a HUGE plus. Hopefully we feel the same way second time around...

Amazing Weekend at Wilbraham

4.8 on January 07, 2012

My husband and I stayed three nights and had a wonderful time. We rang in the New Year in Cape May which was so much fun! We stayed in suite 202. If you are looking for a big beautiful room then this is the one for you. Doug, Sissy and staff were fantastic. The breakfast and tea in the afternoon was great! Definitely will return!

Wonderful stay!

Outstanding Bed and breakfast

4.8 on September 26, 2011

In a true Victorian bed and breakfast style, this establishment had all the amenities one desires for a romantic get away. Beautiful room (204), gas fireplace, and jacuzzi helped to relax those tired legs after walking all around Cape May. The pool was also a appreciated amenity. Started the day with a delicious breakfast and ended with dinner at some of the best restaurants, Ebbitt Room, Mad Batter, The Black Duck. On site parking at the Wilbraham Mansion a bonus. Can't wait to return.

Great place to stay

5 on March 24, 2011

You will not be disappointed with your stay at The Wilbraham. Everything from the room (we stayed in suite 204) to the staff to the amenities are first rate. Within walking distance to everywhere you would like to go (shopping, restaurants, bars, beach, etc.). This was the first time we stayed here and are already booking our next stay.

January stay

4.6 on January 20, 2011

We stayed in room #2, which was warm, cozy, and with a wonderful bay window. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. Service was friendly and prompt. The highlight was the heated indoor pool -- what a treat on a cold winter day!

A Wilbraham Winter at the Beach Vacation

4.4 on January 20, 2011

This is now the second year we have spent MLK weekend at the Wilbraham Mansion. The beach is beautiful and quiet - perfect for seeking Cape May diamonds and sea glass. While only select restaurants are open, those that are open are the best - they need to be to survive the quiet winter months. The Wilbraham offers the best of a romantics Victorian mansion - quiet parlors, sunny porches, elegantly set tables for breakfast and teas - along with a new annex building hosting modern bedrooms and superb bathrooms. Every room in the annex has a fireplace, two-headed shower, and huge jacuzzi tub, but the decor harkens back to Victorian times, abet with modern comfort. Plus it is a quick step between buildings to the indoor heated pool in the back of the mansion. Innkeeper Doug is a great reference for places to go and eat in town, while Jana and Sissy keep the place spotless and serve up meals and teas. Altogether a great place to relax and unwind!
