Awesome good time

4.6 on October 03, 2017

First time at bed and break fast in Cape may. Really had a fabulous time. Great location and excellent hosts. Terrific value and ready to stay again!

Our host was a wonder

3.6 on September 26, 2017

While the well preserved Victorian building, and the location only blocks from the beach, were both perfectly charming, it was the host's attention, friendliness and wealth of information and entertaining stories, that made this stay extra special. Also the wine and cheese afternoon repasts.

Great New Find in Cape May

4.6 on September 14, 2017

Want a wonderful new find for us cannot wait for our next stay. John is great a real pleasure and the breakfast is delicious!

Excellent all around!

4.8 on September 08, 2017

This bed and breakfast was superb! John was an excellent host and went above and beyond for all his guests. Pros: 1. WINE and cheese hour on the porch everyday! Met so many wonderful people on that porch- even cancelled a dinner reservation to hang out with everyone. 2. Breakfast is outstanding! Not Crossfit friendly paleo haha BUT if you wanted that I'm sure John would try. 3. Bikes and beach chairs provided. 4. Location is close to everything- 5 min walk to Washington St Mall and the beach 5. The Inn itself is beautiful and well kept. John, Thank you for such a great experience in Cape May! Will be back!

Bacchus Inn, Cape May NJ

4.0 on September 07, 2017

Lovely Inn, great service and John is awesome! Loved wine on the front everyday at 4:00pm.

Relaxing Stay

5 on August 31, 2017

We enjoyed everything about the inn. We stayed in the cottage, which was very quiet. Room was clean, nice, and the bed was comfortable. Also loved the shower. We've stayed at several B&B's in Cape May and the food here was the best we've had. The owner John was very nice and accommodating. I highly recommend this inn.

A Wonderful stay

4.4 on August 27, 2017

Our stay at The Bacchus Inn was wonderful! Our host John was super friendly and very helpful in making dinner reservations and suggestions to do. He really knows the area. The afternoon wine and cheese was by far the best we've ever had at a bed and breakfast! No skimping there. The room was very comfortable, the only thing that could make it better would be to have robes. Breakfast was out of this world. Kudos to the chef!

Beautiful place and impeccable service

4.4 on August 27, 2017

I loved my stay at the bacchus inn in Cape May. The only complaint would be that I didn't receive any kind of formal receipt upon checkout. My first night I had trouble sleeping due to a rattle in the air vent. I mentioned it to the innkeeper during afternoon refreshments the next day. He dropped everything at that moment to go fix it. You really feel like you matter staying at this b&b!


5 on August 18, 2017

John was an amazing host and the service was great.

Anniversary Stay

4.4 on August 15, 2017

We are repeat visitors! Great breakfast foods, always something different and new. Very charming B & B. Well kept. Enjoy the wine and cheese mid day get to get togethers. Love John's stories! We all can count on him to entertain. This stay, we chose one of their more private suites for our 35th anniversary celebration in Cape May. We'll be back soon. Drew & Gail

Great visit to Cape May

4.2 on August 14, 2017

John is a great host and very accommodating. I would stay at his B&B again. My mom and I very much enjoyed our stay. The Bacchus Inn is convenient to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We were able to walk everywhere.

Cape May Getaway

4.8 on August 13, 2017

This is a wonderful B& B in a great location in Historic Cape May. Our host was very attentive and engaging, made sure everyone had a memorable stay. On our next vacation in Cape May, we would love to return to the Bacchus Inn.

Gracious Innkeeper and staff

4.8 on August 02, 2017

We were immediately met by John upon arrival. He showed us to our room and went over the features; it is a lovely victorian house in a terrific location--easy walk to all major attractions. John was an attentive and excellent host--afternoon wine and lemonade social. gave us a chance to meet the other guests, and John served a great breakfast. Thanks for the lovely stay in Cape May.

Stay feels like an elegant house party.

5 on July 31, 2017

Beautiful surroundings. John and Lisa supply every amenity a guest could want. Every breakfast is a unique gourmet experience. The porch afternoons with refreshments brings everyone together, and all the guests enter into the spirit of conviviality. Our stays at the Inn feel like an elegant house party.

Our annual trip to Cape May

5 on July 30, 2017

The host was the best we have ever had in Cape may. Just great!

Gem of a place at the Cape

5 on July 29, 2017

We have stayed at a number of B&B's in Cape May over the years, and this was by far the best experience we've had. Having access to complimentary beach chairs, towels and bicycles makes being on the nearby (two blocks) beach very easy. The afternoon pre-dinner beverage service is great convivial fun worthy of the Inn's namesake. John, the owner-host, goes above and beyond one's reasonable expectations in seeing to guests' needs and comfort (after we checked out, he saw to express-mailing the laptop we'd left behind, calling us as we were enroute home). Whether re-filling a breakfast water glass (in the midst of proving a lovely breakfast for seven other couples), or attending to one's culinary preferences, John is a dynamo of graciousness. He is a font of accurate information regarding local dining options or attractions, without ever breaking his stride, a sweat, or the upbeat casual mood. The day we arrived we were so impressed, we began planning our next stay there, and that resolve only strengthened during our stay.

A gracious and accomodating host, with friendly service

4.6 on July 27, 2017

We absolutly enjoyed our stay John the innkeeper is just wonderful and so accommodating Super energetic and dull od knowledge. Loved our morning conversations. Can't wait to go back.

Cape may two nighter

5 on July 19, 2017

The host is especially accommodating. The porch Is always a delight with your glass of wine at happy hour. We really enjoyed our stay.

Amazing host

4.6 on July 18, 2017

John, the owner of the Bacchus should teach classes on how to treat guests. He is simply incredible. Great customer service a charming inn and gourmet breakfast. All adds up to a great vacation.

End of June Getaway

3.2 on July 04, 2017

Always love our host and his impeccable hospitality. There are only two things we would like to see improve. 1. Better breakfasts (specifically, an improvement in cooking skills. Ideas for entrees are nice though. They just aren't executed well.). 2. Fresh coat of paint needed in our specific room. This B&B is our 2nd choice when our favorite is full.

Awesome place to stay for a 40th Anniversary weekend

5 on June 30, 2017

The Bacchus Inn was a place my wife and had had stayed and admired (under a different name at the time) on our 15th anniversary to share a weekend. Now the Inn is owned by John and Lisa who are full of energy and enjoy sharing in reviews during breakfast of all of the great restaurants and places to visit while staying in Cape May. I found the Bacchus Inn to be a very clean Inn with an awesome breakfast each morning. My wife and I enjoyed talking on the porch with other Guests, some from our home town, or just rocking away on the Porch. Cape May is a great walking town with awesome restaurants for every cuisine. We look forward to a return trip to the Bacchus Inn in the near future. Thanks John and Lisa for sharing the Inn and the hospitality during our stay at the Inn. Mike and Kathy June 2017

Wouldn't Say Anywhere Else

5 on June 29, 2017

We have been staying at the Bacchus for 14 years and it NEVER disappoints. The accommodations are top notch, the service is excellent and the Inn keepers are the most congenial people you'll ever meet. We have been to three other B&B's and they don't even come close to our experiences at the Bacchus!

first time stay

4.4 on June 29, 2017

The room was very spacious on the second floor of the second building like a suite. It was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The roof porch/deck was not yet ready for sitting out, but the front porches were a great place to sit and rock in comfortable chairs. Will be a place we would return to for a visit to Cape May again.

The champagne room

5 on June 21, 2017

My fiance and I had a wonderful weekend, the room was beautiful .John is an awesome host. We love the peace and quiet. This time we stayed in the was a nice change.we will definitely be going back. John also prepares breakfast ,it is amazing.

First time in Cape May

4.6 on June 21, 2017

My wife grew up on the east coast and used to visit as a child during the summer. This was my first experience in Cape May and it was tremendous. We checked in and were shown around the bnb, taken to our room, and invited down for some afternoon refreshments. We got our things unpacked and enjoyed a nice glass of sangria with our hosts and other residents. Our room was just what the 2 of us needed, peace and quiet away from the rest of the house for just the 2 of us. Breakfast was as pleasant as the conversation, and...get wife HATES talking to people but didn't want to leave the breakfast table! She enjoyed it THAT much! We didn't use the bikes they have to go to the beach because it was only a 2 block walk to the shore. Easy peasy. Would stay again for sure.

THE place to stay in Cape May!

5 on June 21, 2017

Each time we came to Cape May, we would try a different B&B. That ended 9 years ago when we found the Bacchus Inn. After our 15th+ stay at this Inn, we have always come back. A measure of a good business is the percentage of repeat customers. It is shocking. Last weekend, 80% of the customers had been there before. The comedy on the front porch drinking wine meeting new friends is fantastic while the solace of the interior porch drinking coffee is equally fulfilling. This place will remain our number one spot as long as John and Lisa remain the inn keepers.


4.2 on June 12, 2017

We were very pleased with this B+B. It was very clean, great breakfast, lovely accommodations and great wifi. Owner John is a hoot, fun to chat with and very knowledgeable about the area. He is a great resource of info. We would highly recommended this place. SV TRAVELERS, Hellertown, PA USA

Great Weekend!!

4.2 on May 04, 2017

I recently took my girlfriend here for our anniversary and I have to say the bacchus inn was AWESOME! The owner and the staff were very friendly and always asked if you needed anything. I will definitely be going back, we both loved it. Hopefully we will stay a little longer next time.

The Bacchus Inn - Best of Cape May

5 on January 04, 2017

If you stay at the Bacchus once you will become a repeat guest and not want to stay at another inn. You'll be spoiled by John and Lisa's gracious hospitality, the comfortable charming accommodations, the delicious breakfasts, and the cordial afternoon "wine and cheese" hour. You will love the engaging conversations with the host and other guests. Put the Bacchus on your bucket list - you won't be sorry!!

Another wonderful weekend

5 on January 02, 2017

We stayed the weekend before Christmas. The Inn was decorated beautifully. Our room was perfect. John and Lisa as always made us welcome and made sure we were comfortable. Breakfasts both days were delicious. This was the perfect place to spend our anniversary weekend.

Great B&B.

4.0 on December 29, 2016

John was a great host. gave us a larger room in the other house since the main was getting a new roof. Wine each day at 4pm. very good breakfast

Christmas Trip to Cape May

4.4 on December 26, 2016

We come to the Bacchus because of John and his team. They make the stay very enjoyable and comfortable. I tell anyone I can to stay there when in Cape May.

Greatest B&B in Cape May

5 on December 14, 2016

We have stayed at The Bacchus numerous times and we have never been disappointed. The inn is our home away from home. The breakfasts are incredible and very varied. We will always stay at The Bacchus while visiting Cape May.

Excellent accommodations

4.4 on December 12, 2016

We visited in June and returned in December - a return visitor is a happy visitor. John provides excellent service and very comfortable accommodations. Will return again - not doubt about it.

Would definitely stay there again

5 on November 08, 2016

With two small children we only get a couple nights stay overnight a year and we choose to spend them in Cape May. John and Lisa were excellent hosts. We look forward to our trips to Cape May for weeks and this trip did not disappoint. We would definitely stay there again.

Another Great Weekend at the Bacchus

5 on November 03, 2016

My wife and I stayed 2 nights in Room #7, Provence Suite. It is very roomy and bright. John's breakfasts are always great. have been going to Cape May for years and the only place we will stay is the Bacchus. Highly recommended.

Lucky 13

5 on November 01, 2016

This was our 13 stay at the Bacchus and we are never disappointed! John & Lisa are gracious hosts, the Inn is relaxing and the rooms are beautiful. What started out 13 years as a getaway weekend for my husband and I has turned into a family gathering, this year totaling 12 people. The Bacchus is very accommodating and we wouldn't think about staying anywhere else!

Just what we needed

5 on October 26, 2016

John and Lisa were fantastic hosts. Very friendly and helpful.

Birthday Bash

5 on October 25, 2016

I chose the Bacchus Inn as a birthday surprise and it was more than expected. Even though it was at the time of the hurricane, the crossing on the Cape May Ferry was a bit rough, once we got to the Inn all was well. John, the owner was the epitone of customer service. Ant request we asked for was granted with aplomb and a smile. The room with the fire place was a joy and he was quick to reccomend local eateries. We really enjoyed the interaction with the other guess and the breakfast the next morning was delicious. I have hoghly recommended the Inn to several of my work collegues since I have returned and will definitely be back.


4.6 on October 14, 2016

We had another great time at The Bacchus Inn. Each time we go is another amazing experience!

Birthday Bash

5 on October 13, 2016

The innkeeper John and the property were exactly as advertised and more. John kept me up to date as it was during the storm last week. Outstanding customer service. The property was very easy to locate and very period dated. John was very informative in explaining the origins of the furnishings and giving the history of the inn. He suggested a wonderful restaurant for the birthday dinner - the Marlton which is about four blocks down the street, which was a great dining experience and very much reccomended. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and John's service was beyond compare. We met and chatted with a number of the other guests there; making it a welcoming atmosphere. I have already suggested the Inn to several co-workers who are now making plans. This is the gold standard of what a b&b should be and I am proud to say that I stayed there.


5 on October 12, 2016

For us, it was just an overall pleasurable and relaxing experience. The room was comfortable, the food was excellent, service was great. Not to mention we were within walking distance of many of the sites in the town. Without hesitation, I would definitely recommend staying at your inn. When the opportunity next presents itself will definitely be back.

5 out of 5

5 on October 11, 2016

Love this place. My wife and I have been there twice now. Had an awesome fall visit. Room was a nice size, clean. Breakfasts were delicious, and wine and cheese always fun on the porch. John made sure that the weather was perfect. Eric

wonderful weekend

5 on October 10, 2016

wonderful inn, great location, reasonable rate

Worthy of Dionysius

5 on September 27, 2016

Splendid accommodations, intelligent host who can make scintillating conversation, accompanied by excellent breakfasts and wonderful afternoon wine and snacks. No one could ask for more.

Relaxing and friendly stay!

4.6 on September 23, 2016

The Inn is centrally located, easy to get to beaches and restaurants. Friendly owners made us feel welcome, and the 4:00 wine and cheese on the front porch is a great way to get to know your fellow guests. Thank you - we'll be back!

Exceptional visit

4.8 on September 11, 2016

We came to the Bacchus Inn for a family getaway, and found that it met all our needs and more. A great location and gracious hospitality inspire us to return - and soon. John is the perfect innkeeper: helpful and entertaining, and his sons are clearly learning from a master. Thank you!


5 on September 11, 2016

We have stayed at the Bacchus Inn many times. The innkeepers are great and the breakfast never disappoints us. It's well worth the money!

Another Wonderful Stay at The Bacchus Inn

5 on September 11, 2016

My husband and I recently returned from our annual visit to The Bacchus Inn. As always, John was the ultimate host. We always look forward to conversing with him. Our room was spacious and clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had a tasty breakfast each morning. There are coffee and muffins served before breakfast for early risers, and coffee is available 24/7. Beach towels are in a beach bag in the room and bikes are also available for the guests to ride. There is wine and cheese served each afternoon....can't wait to go back!!!

Another annual visit well enjoyed!!

5 on September 06, 2016

It was my fourth consecutive visit and each year gets better. John aims to please and succeeds! Hospitality abounds and guests that return every year add to a friendly comfortable visit. Looking forward to next August. PS Don't miss breakfast! It's a gourmet's delight!

Amazing stay!

4.8 on September 05, 2016

We had the Most amazing time this Labor Day weekend, despite all the Hermine drama! The Bacchus Inn is such a rare and amazing find. I'm not sure where to start! John the owner is so hospitable and friendly, he truly cares about his guests and it shows in every thing he does. Breakfast was amazing each morning and the rooms were clean and comfortable. We stayed in the smallest room there (the petite Sirha) my husband is 6 ft and the shower and room slants were not an issue. The price is a steal for such accommodations. As for the people we met, they were from all walks of life and truly a delight. Most of the couples had been coming for years. Every day at 4 we all gathered on the big front porch and talked for hours while John provided us all with a glass of wine and cheese. He even stayed and chatted us all up, he's a great story teller! Though this was our first time in Cape May, wouldn't stay at another B&B there again!

Gteat stay

4.4 on September 01, 2016

Overheard a few conversations on the front porch-some of mattresses are too soft in middle and should be replaced. The owner, John is amazing-so nice and personable. The breakfasts are great and the afternoon snacks are awesome too. Having the bicycles is a plus.

good time

5 on August 29, 2016

John & Lisa always make you feel like your part of there family Bruce & Roberta

Weekend Getaway

3.6 on August 26, 2016

Wanted some much needed R & R after a busy, busy summer. Just wanted to kick back and have some fun, drinking wine on the porch at 4 pm and meeting some new friends. My husband and I had stayed at The Bacchus Inn before and really enjoy the atmosphere there! It is a great place to experience, especially if you like old Victorians and the beach!! Kudos John and Lisa!

Lovely Clean Inn with Welcoming Owner

3.8 on August 24, 2016

The inn is on a quiet residential street, walking distance to town and beach. The owner , Joe, is more than helpful, personable and welcoming. Outstanding breakfast

Baccus Inn: Better than ever!

4.8 on August 24, 2016

Well, it was my fourth consecutive stay at the Baccus Inn and it gets better every year. Every effort is extended by the host and staff to make for a memorable, enjoyable stay. No surprise that most of the guests are repeat visitors. Wonderful location, lovely ambiance. And the breakfasts are the BEST! Looking forward to next year!

Beautiful B&B

5 on August 21, 2016

My wife and I love this place . We have stayed here several times .We enjoy Cape May and the Bacchus Inn. The innkeepers are great folks . We will continue to stay at this place cause it's fun to meet new people at the breakfast table in the morning Love it.

Such an amazing place to stay!

5 on August 06, 2016

Let me start off by saying I have been going to Cape May my whole life and have always stayed in hotels/condos and after staying here, this is where I will be staying from now on! The Bacchus Inn was a beautiful home away from home for the few days we were staying in Cape May. It was clean, homey and the Inn keeper, John was so hospitable and kind. Among all of the great amenities that come along with staying at the Inn, breakfast was delicious every day, afternoon wine/snacks was great alomg with enjoying it on the porch and lastly, our room was fabulous! It was the perfect size with a private bathroom and a/c. I highly recommend staying here, it exceeded our expectations!

What a wonderful place to stay.

5 on August 05, 2016

John makes everyone feel welcome. We have stayed there every summer for more than 10 years. It's not summer until we have visited Cape May and stayed at the Bacchus Inn.

Best in Cape May

4.6 on July 28, 2016

As always we had a wonderful time in Cape May and the Bachus . John is a wonderful host , the breakfasts and afternoon wine and cheese are great. We will be back. We wouldn't stay anywhere else. Tom and June from Beaver Falls

Favorite place on the Cape

4.8 on July 24, 2016

it all starts with location. The Bacchus Inn is three blocks from the ocean, and 3 three blocks from Washington Street Mall (and if you're so inclined, 1 block from the Cape May Day Spa). The room are very nicely appointed, some with king sized beds, some with clawfoot tubs, and some rooms are suites--basically, there's something for everyone's taste. Breakfast's are always a treat, as they are tasty, and healthy. John is great for his hospitality, as well as his knowledge of all things Cape May--whether it be the wineries, the restaurants, or local events. Off street parking is available if you're staying in some of the fancier rooms. The inn has an outdoor shower, beach chairs, bicycles, and plenty of books and DVDs in case the rain is falling. And a highlight of every day is 4pm, when the guests gather on the porch to relax in a rocking chair, and enjoy some complimentary wine and cheese. Its no wonder that most guests are RETURNING guests. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

4.4 on July 24, 2016

John is a wonderful host. Makes you feel so welcome. I am a repeat visitor to the inn.

THE place to stay in Cape May

5 on July 19, 2016

Great location. Great amenities (Bicycles, beach chairs, outdoor shower) Unpretentious.

Excellent Choice

4.4 on July 18, 2016

The Bacchus Inn is an excellent choice. The bikes and beach chairs are extremely handy. Getting around on bike is much easier than on foot. The location is great, food and service was excellent and this is one of few places that has plentiful king beds with air conditioning in each room. Highly recommended.

most recent stay

5 on July 15, 2016

breakfast was super


4.6 on July 13, 2016

My husband and I had a great time at the Bacchus Inn.

Our first but not our Last trip to Cape May

4.8 on July 06, 2016

What an unexpected pleasure it was. The Inn was charming - lovely front porch to sit on in the am or at wine and cheese . John is amazing - all places at once and never hassled. ( well, seemingly). He had such a nice way of making all the visitors feel comfortable. If you wanted to stay to yourself, there are lots of nooks to sit in and enjoy. IF you want to talk, he is great at stimulating conversations or picking up on something you said. The breakfasts are different each day and there is always a tray with muffins and coffee if you get your day going earlier than most. The wine and cheese offerings are different each afternoon as well. All in all, it was wonderful and we want to come back - with more of our family for a relaxing reunion

Very accommodating, clean, charming, and affordable.

5 on July 06, 2016

My husband and I were looking for an affordable stay in a sea of expensive B&Bs. We were delighted to find the Bacchus Inn. It is centrally located, and offers a lot of value for a great price. it was clean and relaxing and beautiful. The host was very understanding about my dietary needs. I am gluten intolerant and he was careful to offer me a delicious meal that was safe for me to eat. Also, breakfast was offered in an early shift and a late shift. We were thrilled not to have to get up early and sat down at 9:45 instead. We spent a lot of time on the beach, exploring town, the lighthouse, and the nature preserve. We had to check out at 11am and they offered us use of the outdoor showers later in the day so we could clean up and get ready for dinner that night. We are very pleased. We told our parents about the Inn and they are now planning their own stay.


5 on July 03, 2016

John never fails to deliver a great experience. Wonderful hospitality, great rates, nice rooms, awesome breakfast, fun guest conversation. Always sorry to go home.

Home Away from Home

5 on July 02, 2016

I love coming here to relax and get away from everyday stress. It is a beautiful inn with a welcoming host. I try to come on my birthday week and a couple of times during the warmer weather.

Beautiful stay

4.8 on June 29, 2016

A wonderful B&B, Host John couldn't be more friendly. Room was clean and beautiful. We loved playing pool on the table in the Cottage where we stayed. Breakfast was by far the best I've ever had at a B&B! Best location, right in the middle of beach and town. The ONLY suggestion I would make would be to add a foam topper to the bed which was a little hard for my taste, but all in all, fantastic stay.

Wonderful stay in Cape May!

5 on June 27, 2016

Great host, prime location and relaxing stay!

Always Wonderful!

4.8 on June 26, 2016

We make sure that every year we have a 2 night stay at this wonderful inn in Cape May. Location, service and rooms are outstanding. Breakfast and afternoon snacks are always of high caliber. John, the innkeeper, is often on hand for conversation. He is what makes the stay so exceptional! Cost is usually lower than most other BB in Cape May. Highly recommend.

Wonderful as usual! :)

5 on June 13, 2016

Thanks John for being such a good host of the best b&b in cape may and elsewhere for that matter! See you soon!!!!

Best overall B&B in Cape May!

5 on May 30, 2016

Great rooms and rates. Lovely location. Fantastic breakfasts. Wonder wine time in the afternoon. Friendly and loving host. Great porch time with other people. Who could ask for more!

Great stay at the Bacchus Inn

4.4 on May 25, 2016

Innkeeper John is amazing -- so energetic, friendly, helpful. 4pm wine and cheese on the front porch really gets the guests chatting and having a good time. Breakfast is top notch and very creative. Rooms are all very nice. The inn is in a great location. We will definitely check availability at the Bacchus for our next Cape May trip.


5 on May 23, 2016

Owner was very attentive, food was great, afternoon snacks great, free use of bicycles. Couldn't ask for anything more. Loved our stay, we will go back.

The only place to stay in Cape May

5 on May 21, 2016

If you are looking for a a place to stay and be treated like royalty, look no further. The Bacchus Inn is the place. John and staff go beyond the extra mile to make you feel comfortable, welcome and relaxed. Close to the Washington Street Mall, free bikes, and beach towels. You will NOT find a better place or host.

Your Search is Over

4.6 on May 19, 2016

If you're searching for a great Victorian B & B in Cape May, your search is over. I was back and forth reading multiple reviews. John has made the Bacchus Inn a "home" that people return to year after year. All the guests we spoke to had been there before and look forward to each visit. The location is great for walking to wonderful restaurants, bars,the beach or into the main shopping area. There are bikes to borrow so you never need to take your car. (Parking can be difficult in season.) John provides guaranteed parking for some of the rooms. They provide a wine and cheese happy hour each day, and there is a rotating breakfast menu that is provided each night. Breakfast is "served" and it is pleasant to chat with other guests and make new friends.The rooms are spotless and it is obvious they have added many wonderful details to make their inn a home.

After-tax-season getaway

5 on April 21, 2016

Thanks again, John & Lisa, for a memorable & relaxing stay. We'll see you later in the year.

Total Bliss!

5 on April 16, 2016

We stay here at least twice a year. The owner is very accomadating and runs the best B&B

Another Great Visit to the Bacchus Inn

5 on February 20, 2016

This was our second Valentine's stay at the Bacchus Inn. We could not wait to see the innkeepers John and Lisa. We had such a good time over the weekend. As always, we met very engaging and nice people. We got to stay in our favorite room, #10 Rioja. This suite was better that the last time with the addition of a plush leather chair and ottoman. The breakfasts were delicious. Social hour in the afternoons are still the best. There are always new wines and goodies to try. We can't say enough good things about John. He continues to be a wealth of information and a most gracious host. If you have not been to Cape May in the winter, you are missing a treat. Especially when it snows, the whole town looks like a post card. The Bacchus is truly our favorite B&B.

My boyfriend and I have now been to The Bacchus Inn about 6 times in less than a year. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the breakfast is AMAZING, and refreshment and cheese hour is just perfect! However the selling point are the Innkeepers, John and Lisa. They are truly the perfect hosts. John makes you feel at home, while entertaining you with his charismatic personality. Their hospitality and warmth are second to NONE! By far the best B&B in Cape May. We will DEFINITELY be returning many more times. Definitely check it out, you will not be disappointed! Elke & Michele

Another Great stay at the Bacchus Inn

5 on January 06, 2016

This was our second stay at the Bacchus and we were again treated to great service, terrific food and a relaxing atmosphere. John is a great host and makes every effort to anticipate any needs or provide referrals for restaurants or special events in town. We would recommend the Bacchus for any special occassion.

great get away

5 on January 05, 2016

we went down for new years eve, and it was wonderful. John and Lisa are wonderful hosts and we can't wait till our next visit in the spring

Great stay!

The Bacchus was a great find. The house is beautiful, room warm and well kept. The owner is super friendly, very talkative and extremely helpful with any questions about the area which made our stay very fun. I highly recommend it.

Best of Cape May

5 on December 28, 2015

John and Lisa are the ultimate hosts. Friendly, helpful, detail-oriented. Guests feel right at home. Breakfasts and afternoon "wine and cheese" are the best. These times are when John engages the guests in lively conversation. You can also choose to eat quietly in your own space. Rocking on the front porch and hearing the clip-clop of the horse carriages is very relaxing.

John is just outstanding!

5 on December 28, 2015

We stayed the weekend of Dec 11-12, 2015. We stayed for 2 nights. We stayed in the Rhone Room (#4). It has a Queen Bed and a wonderful private shower. We loved rocking on the porch drinking champagne and watching the horse and carriages go by. I loved the 12 days of Christmas theme in both the dining room table and large Christmas tree. It is situated within walking distance of the mall and beach. John is a wonderful innkeeper and I would recommend this inn wholeheartedly! We plan on returning soon.

Loved the Bacchus Inn

4.2 on December 13, 2015

We stayed at The Bacchus inn for 3 nights in December to celebrate my birthday. It was a wonderful experience. John, the innkeeper was very friendly and hospitable. He served wine, crackers & cheese, nuts and homemade cookies every afternoon. Breakfast was homemade and very delicious. It was nice to have a choice of time for breakfast. We are not hungry first thing in the morning and like to take a long walk before breakfast. The 9:45 option worked well for us. The inn was decorated beautifully for Christmas. It was a quiet time (we stayed Monday-Thursday), so we only met three other couples. They were all very friendly and nice. We stayed in room 5 in the main house. It had an en suite bathroom, small but adequate, and a comfortable king size bed. It was very clean and well kept. Paul & Linda Scotch Plains, NJ

Great time every year.

4.2 on November 02, 2015

John and Lisa run a great B&B. They make you feel welcome and are a lot of fun. We head down every year and wouldn't think of going anywhere else.

John was great!

4.0 on October 27, 2015

John was so friendly & accommodating. Other guests were too providing warm vibe around breakfast table. Limited kitchen capacity & hired help shortage had some impact but more than compensated by innkeeper's attitude. Would heartily recommend.

Best B&B in Cape May

5 on October 27, 2015

This is the ONLY place we saty in Cape May. Great inn keepers and a great location!

A great BnB!

4.6 on October 18, 2015

This was a lovely place to stay on Cape May - even in the pouring rain! Great restaurant recommendations. Great wine and cheese hour. Loved meeting other guests and hearing about their explorations. Perfect host! Rooms a little small but adequate and extremely clean. All good!

Wonderful Week!

4.2 on October 15, 2015

Wonderful time-John is an engaging host who made everyone feel welcome. Both breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were excellent. Highly recommend!

Best B&B in town!

5 on October 14, 2015

We LOVE the Bacchus Inn! John and Lisa are always so welcoming and breakfast is just sublime! I have never had a breakfast there that wasn't superb. We have stayed in other places in Cape May, but never again. The Bacchus Inn is our favorite place!

Relaxing and Enjoyable!

5 on October 13, 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our four night stay at the Inn. The accommodations were lovely and the bed very comfortable We appreciated having the amenities which were the bicycles and beach chairs. John is very warm and welcoming, and fun to talk with.

Superb and delightful Cape May Inn

5 on October 11, 2015

John is a wonderful innkeeper, genuinely enjoying his guests and making sure that they are all happy and comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent and meticulously prepared. Rooms/beds/bathrooms are all comfortable and well appointed. Wine time in the afternoon is always great fun, as John makes sure that there is conversation and introduction of guests one to another. Terrific place to stay.

Loved my stay!!!

5 on October 10, 2015

We drove down to the Bacchus on a weekend with absolutely horrible storms. We had booked well ahead of time so we weren't expecting a storm. Since we paid, we decided to go anyway. In spite of the weather, we had a GREAT TIME! John was an AWESOME and ENTERTAINING host and helped make our stay FANTASTIC in spite of the weather. Will definitely stay here again!

great host

4.8 on October 07, 2015

Amazing time

5 on October 03, 2015

We having been staying at the Bacchus Inn for over 10 years. We love the atmosphere

The Best B&B I have ever stayed at!

5 on October 01, 2015

I have been to the Bacchus Inn many times over the past 7 or 8 years. I was first introduced to the B&B and its owners, John and Lisa when I board I serve on decided to start holding meetings there. From the first minute I arrived and now going on 8 years and countless visits, I can say that I truly feel like I am home away from home. My wife and I have recommended the Bacchus to many of our friends and they have had similar experiences - always highlighting the warm and friendly feeling they experience. The facilities are great, the breakfasts are amazing and the inn keepers and staff are awesome! We love to gather around 4:00 in the afternoon for wine and cheese as we sit on the porch and rock away the hours while chatting with the many guests who are staying at the Bacchus. If you are looking for a B&B in Cape May, look no further - you will not be disappointed!

Wonderful Stay

5 on September 27, 2015

My husband and I had another enjoyable stay at The Bacchus Inn. We have been staying there for 8 or more years. The room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious and tastefully presented. The Bacchus Inn is centrally located and one can walk to most places in Cape May. I particularly enjoy sitting on the porch reading or chatting with others.

Awesome bed and breakfast

4.6 on September 24, 2015

Great room and great hospitality, couldn't ask for anything more.

A Great Visit

Awesome Cape May bed and breakfast !

5 on September 14, 2015

What else can I say that hasn't been said in other reviews , everything about this place was awesome . The innkeeper, the food , the rooms and location was perfect .

Always a Wonderful Experience

5 on September 13, 2015

My husband and I recently returned from a relaxing 2 night stay at The Bacchus Inn. We have staying there for at least 8 years and love it. John is an exceptional host. The rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. The beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is always yummy. The Bacchus Inn is centrally located and in walking distance to most things. It is a treat to sit on the porch and relax. We will be back next year!

Our favorite Cape May place to stay!

5 on September 12, 2015

Perfectly located for beach,shopping,and restaurants. Friendly welcoming atmosphere with lovely amenities, such as afternoon wine,cheese,sweets; bicycles for your use, beach chairs and towels. John, the owner, is a wonderful host and makes you feel like family. He is very helpful and knowledgeable. When we come to Cape May we always stay at the Bacchus Inn.

I would give it an "Outstanding" if the site would allow

4.0 on September 11, 2015

This is our 13th year staying at the Bacchus Inn. We keep coming back because of the warm welcome, quaint accommodations, great breakfasts, and engaging inn-keeper. John M. has intimate knowledge of the Cape May scene, from the restaurants to things to do. The afternoon wine and cheese on the porch is a highlight of the day. Rooms in both the main house and cottage are clean and well appointed with modern conveniences in a Victorian setting.The inn is conveniently located within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and the beach. Park the car and walk just about everywhere. Can't wait to go back in December.

a quite, charming escape into the past with all comforts of the present, at Bacchus Inn

3.8 on September 10, 2015

John and Lisa are such perfect hosts meeting and entertaining their guests in their Bacchus Inn! John's naturally kind temper and good nature makes every guest feel at home and part of the family. Very central location in the midst of the historic center and just 2 blocks from beach. We guests can indulge in the rocking chairs in the patio and be offered wine or tea/coffee and refreshments in the afternoon. Breakfast is tasty and choreographically prepared and customized for any taste (prefer the eggs, served as a delicious dome-shaped cake with tomato coulis, to the kelloggs). Both the elegantly set main table in the main dining room - where a copy of Caravaggio's Bacchus is hanging with other many paintings - and the small tables in the verandah/studio are charming. We stayed in the Piedmont, a romantic little cosy room with period furniture, and we enjoyed our stay at the slow whirling of the ceiling fan. If you're a fan of chilly a/c, however, the split is brand new and silent. If you're a cyclist, you'll find it easy to ride one of the many bikes provided free in the backyard, and explore the whole town and highlights. I'll definitely recommend the stay at the Bacchus Inn, especially out of season, when Cape May is more tranquil and less crowded - and also less expensive. Alex & Anto, NY

Our first stay at The Bacchus Inn

4.6 on September 10, 2015

We weren't disappointed. John was exceptionally friendly and clearly goes out of his way to make every guest feel welcome and at home. The location is great as is the food, and we'll be sure to come back.

A lovely, relaxing stay at Bacchus

5 on September 06, 2015

I've stayed there several years in different rooms - each is lovely, different, and interesting to explore. Breakfasts are exceptional, hosts warm and welcoming, ready to help you find what our are looking for at Cape May if it's your first or fifth visit.

Beyond awesome Bed and Breakfast

5 on September 03, 2015

Eveything about this place was awesome . John is a super host and the food was amazing . Cant wait to go back .

Great Stay

Very nice accomodations, helpful staff, great food, great value, great place to stay


4.6 on June 08, 2015

My friend and I planned a girls' weekend and stayed at The Bacchus Inn. I can't say enough great things about our stay. The room was clean, breakfast was out of this world, and it was an absolute pleasure to hang out with John and the other guests in the afternoon for the wine and cheese hour. John is a wealth of information, beyond accommodating and just an all around great person. I will definitely be back with my husband.


5 on August 04, 2014

I cannot say enough about The Bacchus Inn! Gorgeous, quiet, super clean, and awesome food! Extremely friendly. Just a short walk from the mall and beach. Very very accommodating. Highly recommend.

Like Being Home

5 on July 05, 2014

My wife and I recently spent a few nights at the Bacchus Inn in Cape May, NJ for a quick getaway. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were tastefully decorated, the service, value, cleanliness and dining were outstanding! I actually loss a valuable piece of identification that was recovered by John, the innkeeper and he made a point of insuring I received it. We highly recommend anyone who needs some time off for rest and relaxation to strongly consider the Bacchus Inn. We plan to return there ourselves. -The Soo Hoo family.

Quiet and Peaceful Stay

4.4 on October 13, 2011

Lisa and John accomodated my boyfriend and I last minute and made our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The room was clean, the bed comfy, and the bathroom was beautifully remodelled. The cool night breeze made it perfect to throw open the windows and enjoy the fall air. We recommend this B&B to all those needing to unwind and relax for a day or two.

Memorable Stay

5 on September 21, 2011

The entire experience (innkeepers, service, ambience, room, dining, location, etc.) at the Bacchus Inn was wonderful. It was my second visit, and it was as great as the first one 2 years ago. John and Lisa are awesome hosts. I recommend it to everyone and plan to return.

Bacchus Inn is wonderful!

5 on August 12, 2011

We always stay at the Bacchus Inn when in Cape May. John and Lisa are so helpful and friendly, the food is great, and the rooms are delightful. We enjoy using the beach chairs and bikes!

Perfect Babymoon Spot!

4.8 on August 09, 2011

Lisa and John are incredible hosts! We loved our stay and the breakfast was worth every calorie! Already made reservations to return.

Stayed there 4 years in a row!

5 on July 31, 2011

Best place to stay in cape may. Friendly, fun, clean, delish food and wine hour. The rooms are remarkabl. We can't wait to stay there again next year.

Been Staying Here Forever

5 on July 10, 2011

My wife and I go to Cape May at least once a year, sometimes twice. We only stay at the Bacchus. John and Lisa are the perfect hosts. Both are totally knowledgeable about Cape May restaurants, etc. They are also both engaging individuals who treat their guests like friends. Lisa's breakfasts are always tasty, and John's stories always interesting. Afternoon wine and cheese on the porch is a real plus.

Wonderful Hosts

4.6 on June 15, 2011

Loved our weekend stay at the Bacchus Inn. John and Lisa are excellent hosts and will sit and talk to you about all topics. The wine and cheese hour at 4:00 is a great way to meet the other guests in the house and compare notes on restaurants, bars, etc. We loved the fact that there are plenty of bikes available for use and we took advantage to cruise the friendly town of Cape May. Our room (# 1) is as advertised on the website and was very clean. The innkeepers definitely take pride in their home and it shows. Thank You for a wonderful time!

Birthday Weekend with my daughter - a tradition

4.4 on June 09, 2011

We have stayed at the Bacchus Inn every June 5,6,7 for the past 5 years.John and Lisa - and now their darling two boys - have been our hosts. They make you feel like family every time. The breakfasts are inpeccable and delicious - every detail attended to. John is a wealth of information about restaurants, history, and just about everything - so much fun.


4.4 on May 25, 2011

We loved our stay at the Bacchus Inn. For the past five years each May we take a mini vacation to Cape May. We have stayed at different B&B's and think we have now found our favorite. John & LIsa were great hosts, the location is great, good breakfast, clean rooms, bikes, and don't forget the wine and cheese hour! We had a wonderful time and would stay there again.

A great weekend getaway

5 on May 09, 2011

We stayed in the Sonoma Valley, it wouldn't have been our first choice but we planned last minute on a whim. The room was just what we needed to get away, didn't care their wasn't a TV cause we wanted to be outside in the sunshine anyway. The bathroom was small but really didn't care about that either, it was in the room which was fantastic - excellent value room to stay in. Everything seemed clean, the bed was very comfy. The breakfast was amazing and enough to keep you full until Dinner - that way you can skip lunch! Didn't do the wine and cheese but definitely look forward to that next time. We didn't have parking with our room - gotta give something up for the value! But it really wasn't that big a deal, we parked across the street. Were definitely going back summer 2011!

We keep going back!

4.6 on April 17, 2011

We keep going back because we have such a great time each time we go. The breakfasts are out of this world! The rooms are always clean and John and Lisa are great! Bacchus Inn offers off street parking with many of the rooms and is within walking distance to the beach and to Washington Street.

A Fun Time

4.4 on February 17, 2011

The owners were great. Friendly and attentive. The daily wine hour was fun. Good selections of wines and cheeses. And the owners showed flexibility and a willingness to go beyond what was expected. I would stay here again.

very satisfied

4.0 on February 16, 2011

I was very satisfied and pleasantly suprised by my recent stay at the Bacchus Inn. The breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were excellent and service was great. Location is very convenient and the rooms were clean and in good condition. Staff was very knowledgeable about Cape May area and made excellent dinner recommendations and tour recommendations. I would definitely return.

New Years Day Stay

3.4 on January 05, 2011

Everything was lovely. TV was a little small to see, and we didn't know our bathroom would be outside of our suite. Other than that, it was very nice and the innkeepers were great.

Thankful for the wonderful place John and Lisa have created

4.4 on January 04, 2011

I gave this trip to my boyfriend as a anniversary/christmas gift. We had an AMAZING time. We went there to celebrate the new year, also. We both truly felt that this trip was everything we were looking for and more. Needless to say we were very happy when we left. In fact, I did not even want to leave. John and Lisa have really created something extraordinary with their inn. This was my/our first visit to a bed and breakfast, but it was everything we hoped for. The beds and the food was what really impressed us. The beds were huge and fluffy, cozy and wonderful. And the food was all homemade by Lisa in the kitchen next to the dining room. Now, I enjoy cooking and my dishes even come out well, but Lisa's dishes were EXCEPTIONAL. It was the intricate herbal flavors that really made her breakfasts and hot hors d'oeuvres stand out. John and Lisa have created a warm and inviting inn that specializes in romance, love, and charm and we are completely grateful for what they have done here.

Christmas Getaway

4.4 on January 03, 2011

Once again John and Lisa made my wife and I feel special. When we checked in it was like catching up with old friends. Like old friends we all picked up where we left off in September. We enjoyed Cape May as much in December as we did in September. The personalized service that John and Lisa provide is outstanding. From restaurant suggestions to afternoon wine & cheese they are there to make you feel relaxed! Lisa even gave my wife and I coupons to a local restaurant which seems to be a hidden treasure. John and Lisa take the time to get to know their guests and their needs. They understand what it takes to please guests and that is what will keep us coming back to the Bacchus Inn.

Can't wait to go back!

5 on January 02, 2011

This was our first time staying at a B&B in Cape May, and we came down after spending New Year's eve in AC. First impression, house and cottage across the street were beautiful, and the owners John and Lisa were super friendly and so welcoming! We opted for the least expensive room available, which was cute and comfortable. Wine and cheese hour was the best, and breakfast was even better! Already planning our next trip down :)

great place

4.4 on December 19, 2010

The Bacchus Inn is a very warm victorian Bed and Breakfast whose hosts were outstanding.The breakfasts were awesome and we are looking forward to going back.We will recommend this place to everyone.

Our host was very accommodating. He immediately made all three couples feel welcome. Breakfasts were tasty and not your humdrum regulars.

Wonderful Inn at Beautiful Cape May

4.4 on November 17, 2010

Our family came from north and south to celebrate an anniversary. We loved being together at the Bacchus Inn and the service, food, hospitality, and rooms were wonderful. The Innkeepers were so gracious and provided any information we needed. You can't go wrong staying at the Bacchus.

Romantic Getaway

4.8 on November 16, 2010

My husband and I have stayed at the Bacchus Inn many times now. The rooms are comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. We enjoy that wine is served in the afternnoon along with delicious cookies and crackers and cheese. The breakfasts are amazing as are the innkeepers John and Lisa. Within walking distance to the beach and the Washington Mall. Perfect little getaway!

Wonderful Visit

3.8 on November 10, 2010

The innkeepers at Bacchus are among the nicest hosts I've ever stayed with. Food was top notch, and they went out of their way to accommodate our early-morning needs. Mattress was sub-par and I would recommend its replacement. Nonetheless, we were upgraded to a lovely suite without asking... these are really wonderful people, and the house is a treasure.

Will go again

4.0 on November 09, 2010

A particularly nice B&B, with very friendly owners. The wine & cheese hour (ours extended to nearly 3 hours...) was so much fun and really sets this place apart. We plan on making the Bacchus Inn a yearly destination.

A great location

4.4 on November 03, 2010

John & Lisa could have been more hospitable. We stay here on our anniversary and found it to be a perfect place to stay. Close to the shopping and beach. I would definitely recommend this place anyone. Breakfast wasn't my cup of tea but then I'm pretty picky about what I eat, everyone else at the inn seemed to enjoy the food.

Fun Fall Weekend at the Beach

4.0 on November 01, 2010

Great weekend stay, John was quite knowledgeable about where to go and what to do in Cape May. Will be staying there again.

found the Bacchus Inn!!!

5 on October 31, 2010

We have been going to Cape May for years, we have stayed in hotels and other B&B's. One year we tried the Bacchus Inn and we have not stayed anywhere else since. It has become our home away from home. The morning breakfasts are delicious, Lisa is phenominal cook. The portions are generous so that the next time you are hungery just happens to be when it's time for the daily wine and cheese hour at 4pm. And for dinner...they have sample menus for you to view and John has wonderful insight on the restaurants to help you make your trip even more fullfilling. The casual relaxed atmosphere is exactly what you want on vacation. Sitting on the wrap around porch rocking in the rocking chairs, sipping on wine and enjoying the friendly atmosphere adds to the experience of Cape May. They offer beach chairs and bikes which just lessens your packing and adds a bonus to your vacation. On the day we check out, we hit the beach for the balance of the day. The Bacchus Inn has an outside shower and dressing room available for guests to use, so we shower and then head home, yet another added amenity other places don't offer you. We highly recommend the Bacchus Inn and once you try it, you won't want to go stay anywhere else while in Cape May.

Best Recommendation

5 on October 19, 2010

My girlfriend and I had not been to Cape May since 2004 and the previous B&B we stayed at recommended The Bacchus Inn. We hit the jackpot with Lisa and John. Our stay was wonderful and we will be back next year and will stay at The Bacchus Inn.

Charming getaway in Cape May

4.4 on October 10, 2010

Cape May is my favorite shore destination and after trying several accomodations, I found The Bacchus Inn and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The house is a beautifully restored Victorian with tasteful decor and modern amenities -- gotta love that wraparound porch where everyone gathers for wine and cheese in the afternoons! Lisa's breakfasts are scrumptuous and the fact that they provide beach chairs and bikes makes it easy to pack up the car and save a few dollars on daily rentals. John and Lisa are the perfect hosts, very knowledgable about restaurants and activities in Cape May and naturally hospitable. The Bacchus Inn is in a great location, too, just a couple blocks from the downtown area and a couple blocks from the beach on a lovely tree-lined street. I highly recommend it!

Great Mini-moon stay!

5 on September 29, 2010

I stayed here with my husband the weekend following our wedding as a mini-honeymoon. We had never stayed in a bed-and-breakfast before, so we weren't sure what to expect. From the moment we arrived, we had an amazing experience. John, the host, was incredibly friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home. Lisa made AMAZING food, I'm still drooling while I think about the cinnamon french toast she made! The rooms were cozy and comfortable. Our favorite part was the wine and cheese hour!! Can't wait to come back and stay again!

Another great stay at The Bacchus Inn

5 on September 19, 2010

This was our third stay at The Bacchus Inn. Our room was very clean and comfortable and I can't say enough about the hospitality of the innkeepers, Lisa and John. The breakfast is outstanding as are the wine, cheese and cookies in the afternoon. Bikes, beach towels and beach chairs are available to use. We love it!


5 on September 13, 2010

John and Lisa are very welcoming and always around to help answer any questions you may have. Room was spotless, beds are extremely comfortable. Plenty of hot water, and great water pressure. The afternoon wine and chesese is a nice added touch. Breakfast was yummy with plebty of fresh fruit. Beach chairs,beach towels, and bikes are available in amble supply. Im already planning my next trip.

Relax, Relax, Relax

5 on September 08, 2010

My partner and I have been going up to Cape Cod for the past 20 years and this summer we thought we give Cape May a try. Well, the Bacchus Inn has made us converts. No matter how much you may like the area you are in, the B&B sets the tone for your whole experience and John and Lisa set the right tone for us with Clean, nicely appointed accomodations, wonderful breakfasts that look as wonderful as they taste, afternnon gatherings with wine and cheese, and host of other amenities that made our stay very enjoyable. We have since returned to the Inn for Labor Day weekend and we bought friends with us who also loved the Inn. We are now in the middle of planning another long weekend get away for the fall and the Bacchus Inn will certainly be our lodging of choice. If you are looking for a wonderful sea side town with tons of history, miles of great beach, great selection of food/restaurants and shopping. Cape May is the place for you. If you want to add a bit of comfort and relaxation to your trip, make a reservation at the Bacchus Inn. Wonderful accomodations, wonderful hosts, wonderful experience. You will come back again and again and again. J&M

The Bacchus inn is a fantastic bed and breakfast. Lisa and John did a great job of making your stay enjoyable with their energy and enthusiasm. The food was amazing and the wine selection was great. I highly reccomend this place for couples.


4.8 on March 08, 2008

A calming place to melt away the stress of extremely cold weather and horrendous car problems. John and Lisa were right there to help us out and make sure that we didn't miss our daughter's Coast Guard graduation after the car went in the shop. Thank's so much! This is definitely the B & B you want to stay in when you visit Cape May! It's great!

A Great weekend!

4.8 on October 14, 2007

The inn keepers, John and Lisa, made you feel as though you had been friends with them for years. We felt so comfortable in the house and enjoyed the many extras that were available to us. The breakfasts were absolutely out of this world!! This B&B was without a doubt the BEST one we have ever stayed at and we can not wait to go back.
