Just Great

accommodations and service were excellent. They make you feel at home the minute you arrive. Location to restaurants and other Cape May activities is perfect.

The innkeepers put a lot of energy into providing service above the norm for similarly priced B&B's. The late afternoon wine tasting with homemade snacks is fantastic. Except for the bed needing a pillow top the room we stayed in is a recent renovation done right. There are numerous artifacts providing a glimpse Into the history of the building, the inn and the owners which made the stay more interesting.


Delightful hosts and delicious food

My second stay at this B&B and it was fantastic. Delicious unique food for breakfast included a flax seed flatbread with egg, sausage, arugala and homemade bruschetta. Second morning was an outstanding blueberry french toast bake with bacon. Plenty of coffee and tea. Juice and fruit and fresh baked breads. No afternoon tea --- wine and hors d'oerves instead. FANTASTIC. Great wine offerings and delicious fresh food such as tomatoes and mozzerella and ham wrapped baked asparagus and cheese and crackers. The art of conversation is alive and well in this Inn. Hosts are welcoming and helpful without being too nosy. Felt at home instantly. Many returns planned.


Excellent home away from home

The Inn at the Park is a lovely home in a quiet neighborhood about a ten minute walk from the mall. Mary Ann and Jay are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts are superb. We highly recommend it.

Our hosts Mary Ann and Jay made us feel like family from the minute we arrived. They are such a warm and caring couple. The breakfasts were outstanding and the wine and special appetizers were such a nice touch in the afternoon. Will definitely be returning! Peggy and John

Wonderful time at the Inn at the Park

5 on September 03, 2014

Our stay at the Inn at the Park was fabulous. We were greeted personally by the owner the moment we stepped foot in the parking lot. The Inn was very comfortable and provided for authentic experience of Cape May. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. As an extra perk, the Inn serves wines and appetizers before the dinner hour. I will definitely return to the Inn on a future trip. We were treated as family.


Felt Like Family

5 on August 10, 2014

We were glad that we changed our reservations from 3 nights to 4. The room (La Dame) was very spacious and comfortable. The hosts, Mary Ann and Jay, could not have been better hosts if they tried. Each morning we were greeted with friendly smiles, great conversation and fabulous hot breakfast - a different dish each day. Afternoon wine and hors d' oeuvres were a nice break in the day - and delicious as well. The wine selection was wonderful, and also a different selection of wine and hors d'oeuvres each day as well. The location was good. We did not walk to the beach - it was a bit far to go with beach chairs, etc., but several times we did walk to the Mall. It was good exercise and lots to see on the way there. Mary Ann and Jay were helpful with dinner suggestions and things to go and places to see. They treated us like family and took a genuine interest in our comfort and wanted to be sure that we made the most of our visit to Cape May. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful B&B to friends or family.


Wonderful Stay

Greeted by the Inn Keepers Mary Ann & Jay upon arrival. Personally shown to our room. Always available for questions or suggestions. But also had privacy. Breakfast +5 pm Wine & Snacks excellent Short walk to beach or Washington Street Mall for shopping and restaurants. Beautiful furnishing and well kept Inn + grounds. Highly recommend. Glad I found the Inn at the Park Our next trip to Cape May, NJ will stay at this Bed & Breakfast. Dawn & Mike West Chester, Pa
