Great Getaway!

5 on June 03, 2014

The house is enchanting with many antiques to admire and the house is part of Cape May's history. The location is within walking distance to everything including the downtown area, restaurants, theatre, historical area, the Promenade and the beach. Breakfast was delicious and presented in a lovely setting. You are treated like royalty. The Innkeepers are very friendly, knowledgeable about the area and are more than willing to offer suggestions and directions on places to see. We hope to return again next year!

Great Hosts!

3.8 on May 23, 2014

We took a getaway to the Bayberry and had a wonderful stay. The hosts were charming and breakfasts were delicious and full of lively conversation! We stayed in the Ivy room on the first floor. I found it VERY spacious as B&B rooms go but would have liked it a tad more historically accurate decor-wise. Everything was clean and neat tho and there was a nice little secluded side porch to enjoy coffee in the evenings as well as a spot on the front porch to relax and take in the breeze. The only drawback which wasn't nearly as troublesome as I had originally thought wouldd be was the parking situation(Not much room for it, but doable).... you left your keys on the mantle and the proprietor would play musical cars for you, lol. Que sera's Cape May!! All in was a most pleasant stay with a lot of one-on-one with the hosts.

Wonderful stay

My beautiful daughter booked this beautiful B&B for us to celebrate my birthday and Mother's Day. We have a lovely time and so enjoyed everything about Cape May. Toby and Andy were wonderful hosts and have a lovely home. Toby cooked us yummy breakfast each morning and told us about the history of their home and their beautiful furnishings and Andy shared his love of orchids with us. Our room was lovely as was the entire home. Such a wonderful treat. I would highly recommend it. The location is perfect. I have already recommeded Bayberry Inn to my friends and hope to go back soon.

Charming B & B

We were so pleasantly satisfied trying out another B&B in Cape May. Toby and Andy were wonderful hosts, our room was very comfortable along with the whole place very accommodating. Nice touches with orchids and antique clocks along with great breakfast. We will definitely go back!

Work weekend in cape may

4.8 on October 18, 2013

We are very familiar with cape may and return for work and play often. So ways we change it up is to visit a new b&b or hotel each time we stay. I have to say I will have a hard time booking somewhere else after staying at the bayberry. Although our room was small (last room available) it was creatively comfortable and impeccable clean. A gorgeous house with a great story and relaxing atmosphere. But it was our hosts that made our stay. Kind, interesting, completely available without being intrusive. I feel like we've made new friends. Thank you Toby and Andy. PS location is great ...central with plenty of parking.

About the innkeepers

Andy & Toby both enjoy fine dining, long walks, the beach, watching wildlife, and live theater. Our passion for orchids and growing them, has added beauty to our lovely Inn. We enjoy meeting new people and learning about various cultures and lifestyles. We've found it very rewarding personally, to give our guests a sense of 'home', while attending to their needs. We think you'll like that too.
