Perfect location within walking distance to the historic downtown Cape May, beautiful beach and delicious restaurants. Our stay in the inn was everything we hoped for the weekend. We would welcome a visit again.

The staff at the Blue Rose Inn makes you really feel like this beautiful Victorian house is your second home. It's not just another bed and breakfast; it's truly a special place.

Excellent Lodging Choice

We come here often because of the family that runs the Inn and the location, right next to everything and The Washington Street Walking Mall, a block away. The beaches are a few blocks away and they provide everything you will need and also free beach badges, even an outside shower upon your return. The beds are soft with 1,000 point sheets; it’s immaculate and very clean everywhere. The staff is friendly and accommodating and makes your stay that much more enjoyable with the tips and knowledge they give you while you are with them, they also treat you like family from the moment you enter. The staff of Justin, The Inn Keeper, Sarah, your hosts Tom and Joan along with all the entire staff make your visit elegant, yet very family friendly and homey. The breakfasts they serve from their award winning restaurant in the morning are well worth the stay all by themselves alone. You get an actual menu and a sit down meal at a table of your own, inside or outside dining alfresco on their wraparound porch, no communal breakfasts found here, what a treat and the way it should be. They have a different omelet every day, eggs Benedict, French toast, pancakes, eggs of all sorts, granola, Greek yogurt on the menu they hand you every morning, along with a real treat, French press coffee made right at your table. They also provide free afternoon treats and confections with coffee and\or tea for their lodgers that are spectacular and the delicious assortments change every day. You can walk to everything from this location and all the best attractions are just steps away. The mix of comfort, elegance and family friendly here is hard to beat. I highly recommend that you stay here if you are coming to Cape May. “The Blue Rose Inn & Restaurant” is the place to be if you’re coming to Cape May.


A favorite!

When we booked this BnB we were not aware of the outstanding dining experience- actually voted #1 in Cape May! While we didn't get the chance to have dinner during our 2 nite stay, the breakfasts were amazing! Everything is fresh and homemade and top notch. Our room was beautiful and very comfortable.


Grenn Room at the Blue Rose

4.0 on June 14, 2016

The Green room was nice, the service was excellent and the breakfast on the porch was the best I've has in awhile. However the bath arrangement was not lay out well.The shower was small. The sink was located outside the bath and had separate hot and cold faucets which needs to be updated. The remote control on the HVAC unit could use some instructions attached. However I would stay here again but select a different room.


I have going to Cape May, NJ for many years. I chose a Victorian B&B for the romantic atmosphere and personal service. The Blue Rose Inn & Restaurant is a lovely venue located in the heart of Cape May near shops, places to eat and a short walk to the beach. The staff was caring and courteous.
