John was a gracious host. The room was even better than the picture! Would have liked cheese & crackers for an afternoon snack instead of cookies. Breakfast was OK.

A short walk to the Washington St. Mall and off-street parking for guests, this is B&B is ideally located. The rooms are nicely done with ductless AC as an added bonus. Our room on the 3rd floor was steps away from the bright sunroom which has a wet-bar area including a small frig for cooling your wine and a small ice machine as well. The breakfast was delicious on both days we were here; plenty to eat and get you going for the days activities in the Cape May area. The hosts are very hospitable and friendly. Good value for the money, as well.

We stayed there for 4 nights and found it to be comfortable and clean although our room was small. Bonnie was an excellent host and frequently checked in on us to make sure we were comfortable. The breakfast was carb-heavy and, while delicious, isn't what we normally have. Bonnie was very accommodating and switched our breakfast up to suit our taste. The location couldn't have been better.

My wife and I recently spent four days at the John Wesley Inn. This was our fourth stay at the Inn. As usual,we had a great time.The room,breakfasts and hospitality were first rate. Sally and Joe

This is the first time my wife and I stayed at a B & B. The biggest plus was that you had a private full bathroom attached to each room and there was on site parking. the breakfast was decorated nicely but not enough to fill you. Staff was very pleasant and tried to please.
5 on July 27, 2016
Although our stay at the JW House was short, Bonnie and Lance made sure to make it memorable. Our room was gorgeous, breakfast was amazing (thank you Bonnie and Cindy) and, the outdoor shower, beach chairs, and towels made for an easy trip to the beach. I will definitely stay at the JW House next time I'm in Cape May!
5 on May 04, 2016
I surprised my wife with a stay in Cape May and the John Wesley Inn. I couldn't have been a better experience. Bonnie is an outstanding innkeeper. She went above and beyond to have a cake made by a private baker for my wife. It was delicious and so was the breakfasts at the John Wesley Inn. Some guests and my wife and I were talking at breakfast and commented how clean and neat everything was at the Inn. Our room was cozy and the bed was really comfortable. If you are looking for a great B and B in Cape May, look no further than the John Wesley Inn. You will not be disappointed.

The John Wesley inn in cape may is absolutely stunning. The inn keepers Bonnie & Lance were so hospitable, welcoming and helpful in sharing information about events in the area. Bonnie is a fabulous cook and the breakfasts were delicious. I look forward to staying there again soon.

The John Wesley Inn is an outstanding place to stay for a great getaway. The home is beautiful. The owners are wonderfully hospitable. The location is ideal for walking to the beach, restaurants, shops and other sites. I have been there about a dozen times and will return again!!
5 on April 23, 2016
John Wesley Inn is absolutely gorgeous! While planning my boyfriends birthday getaway, I looked at dozens of B&B's in Cape May. When I found this Inn, I was sold!! Bonnie, the innkeeper, made us a wonderful and yummy breakfast. I highly recommend you come check it out yourself!
4.2 on March 02, 2016
My husband and I stayed in Cape May off-season and had a wonderful overnight stay at the John Wesley Inn. Bonnie was welcoming and helpful but also respected our need for privacy and some much needed rest and relaxation. Bonnie and Lance's restoration of the historic Stockton cottage was tasteful and an obvious labor of love. Our room was very nice and the all-season fireplace made it extra cozy and inviting. The street was quiet and very convenient, easy walk to restaurants and the beach. Breakfast was simply delicious. We would definitely recommend the John Wesley Inn !

Had breakfast in the morning, talked with the innkeeper Lovely couple, and had a great time.

breakfast beautifully presented and was delicious.
5 on December 26, 2015
My wife and I stayed at the John Wesley from 18-20 December, and it was absolutely spectacular! Bonnie tends to every detail and it is an absolutely beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Bonnie is a fabulous Inn Keeper, talks to each person individually, and makes you feel like you are visiting family. The rooms are beautiful, and the breakfasts were amazing. Bonnie makes everything herself and just wants anyone that stays to feel like they are part of her family. I would recommend the John Wesley Inn to anyone that wants to stay in Cape May, close to everything, and be wrapped in a feel of luxury and beach feel all at the same time!
5 on November 30, 2015
The John Wesley is a welcoming Bed and Breakfast, bringing out the Victorian charm in typical Cape May fashion. The hosts Bonnie and Lance are very accommodating and attentive to the needs of their guests. The breakfast was absolutely delicious! If cleanliness and comfort are priorities on your list, the John Wesley will exceed your expectations. A great place to visit time and time again.

Bonnie was an awesome host. We had great conversations. Location is great and the house is kept very well.
5 on November 03, 2015
Having stayed in many bed and breakfast inns in my time, I can honestly say this is one of the BEST! My first interaction was making my reservations directly with Bonnie, the owner; who I found to be absolutely delightful in every sense of the word. She made our stay enjoyable and relaxing, and went out of her way to ensure everything was perfect for us. Her entire staff was equally as customer service focused. The room we had was excellent - clean, updated, nice bathrooms, great views. The location of the Inn is perfect - one block away form the beach, and within a short walking distance to everything in Cape May. From Bonnie effervescence to the great breakfasts each morning, it was wonderful!! I can't wait to go back!!
4.8 on September 25, 2015
Bonnie is a fabulous hostess. This was our third visit in three years. We have found "our" place!
5 on September 05, 2015
The Inn is lovely and has beautiful antiques. Location to beach, shopping, restaurants within walking distance. Bonnie was friendly, helpful and cooked great breakfasts. Our stay was great and we intend on visiting again soon. We also found out that my son and his girlfriend picked the same Inn and stayed there in the Spring and had a wonderful time too!
4.4 on August 13, 2015
Bonnie and Lance are great hosts and the breakfasts were the best we ever had. The house has a great location to beach, restaruants, and shopping. Within walking distance to many activities. Met interesting people and had great conversations.

4.6 on April 01, 2015
We enjoyed our stay for the weekend. The room was lovely, the bathroom had all the amenities, but the food was a bit uninspired. Somewhat basic and no real choice. Tea and cookies seemed store bought. We have stayed in other inns that had two choices for breakfast and had better baked goods. However, this inn was in a nice location and had a nice electric fireplace and sitting area in our room which made a cold day nice.
5 on February 16, 2015
We stayed at the Wesley on 2/15 to celebrate my husband's birthday. It is beautiful and Bonnie is the best host. She makes you feel right at home! Our room was beautiful and we enjoyed the fireplace. We will be back!!!
5 on February 15, 2015
My wife and I return every year for a Valentine's Day weekend and we return to the best B&B in Cape May every time. Beautiful home, clean and comfy rooms and in room fireplaces to keep off the chill. If you are looking for a romantic weekend, look no farther. The inn keeper Bonnie will take care of any special needs. Candy, flowers, champagne and rose petals on the bed. Bonnie's hot breakfasts are incredible. In the afternoon there are always cookies or fresh baked treats as a snack. Gourmet hot tea is always available for a quick warm up. Shopping, dining and the convention center are just a short walk away. In the Summer, the beach is only a block down the street. Treat yourself to the best when you stay in Cape May!
3.4 on February 11, 2015
Everything about this visit was very nice. It started when I called to reserve a room and did not stop until after our visit. Check in with Bonnie was very easy. Our room was comfortable. Breakfast each day was very good. Afternoon tea was a nice break. Other guests were pleasant.
5 on February 04, 2015
My wife and I escaped to the John Wesley Inn for her birthday in January. We had an amazing evening in front of our bedside fireplace. Bonnie and Lance couldn't have been more accommodating. The beautifully restored Inn set the stage for the perfect B&B experience. Contact Bonnie for your next trip to Cape May and you will not be disappointed. We will be returning real soon!
4.6 on January 04, 2015
We stayed here for new year's eve and had a wonderful time! Bonnie is a lovely host and the inn is beautiful. Beds were very comfortable and everything was impeccably clean. Loved the little touches like bottled water and chocolates in the room. Delicious food on new years eve and an equally delicious breakfast. Thank you, Bonnie!
4.8 on November 23, 2014
Staying at the John Wesley Inn was a surprise gift to my husband for his birthday and we were both pleasantly surprised. Bonnie is just as wonderful as could be for a hostess and her husband Lance are just as personable as can be. Their home is beautiful and we loved the modern touches that they have in a Victorian setting. The sunroom is a wonderful addition for some relaxation during the day and Washington Square is just a five minute walk. We will definitely be back and thank Bonnie and Lance for sharing their home with us.
4.6 on November 12, 2014
The perfect place to stay for vacation in Cape May. The staff was very accommodating and new their history of Cape May and the Victorian era.

thoroughly enjoyable. great location. excellent facilities. delicious breakfast
5 on October 14, 2014
The last time we went to the John Wesley Inn was around 2005 when current innkeepers Bonnie & Lance first took over and we loved it. It became our favorite as soon as we arrived. Had to return and give my mother-n-law her first B&B experience and we were not surprised that the impeccable service & beauty of the John Wesley Inn is still there. She was thrilled and enjoyed every detail.It is a true gem! Cape May should be proud that it represents all a historic bed & breakfast inn should be. I have & will always recommend The John Wesley Inn.
5 on September 26, 2014
My wife and I just stayed at the JWI for our honeymoon. Post-vacation season, we enjoyed a somewhat quieter time and this was our first stay at a B&B. The owners, Bonnie and Lance, are very nice and definitely put a great deal of time and effort into making and keeping the property in great shape. Although we didn't eat a breakfast at the Inn every single morning of our stay, we greatly enjoyed the mornings we did. Bonnie not only makes incredible breakfasts, but does a great job of accommodating any dietary needs. My wife and I are both gluten-free, and the GF options provided were delicious. In addition to enjoying morning conversation with the other guests over breakfast, Bonnie would also join our table after serving and talk history of the town and different things from a local perspective. Our room was extremely clean and maid service was quick, and was performed seamlessly, despite different personal schedules of coming and going each day. Beach chairs and towels are provided which you can take/return from the outside, which is not only a nice thing as far as eliminating the sandy mess in your room, but also if you're running out of space packing your own in your car. Lance's "man cave" of a garage is a must-see, also. I still like the retro-Americana "family vacation" feel of a traditional motel, and it would certainly be impractical to rely on a B&B in that instance, but it was fun to enjoy a vacation at the beach from a different perspective in a historic Victorian house. Bonnie and Lance provide a great environment, and seem to exemplify the spirit that's kept Cape May the unique place it is. We'll definitely be back to the JWI at some point, hopefully soon.
5 on September 16, 2014
My wife and I stayed for a week and had wonderful breakfast each morning and Bonnie accomodated our gluten intolerance. Each morning was wonderful conversation around the breakfast table meeting other guests and Bonnie would join us at the table and also engage in the conversation and treat us to history about Cape May and her Inn. We can't wait to go back for another stay.
5 on September 09, 2014
This was our second year at the John Wesley B&B. We'll be going again next summer.The location to the beach is perfect - maybe a block away. The B&B is immaculate, and the breakfasts never disappoint. Very accomodating.
5 on September 02, 2014
Felt at-home right away! Our stay was like visiting family .... Without the drama! We felt welcome right and never wanted for anything. Compliments to Bonnie for creating such a warm atmosphere. Would definitely visit again.
5 on September 01, 2014
I found this adorable B&B while searching online for a B&B to stay with my visiting sister.It is in a perfectly close location for enjoying the beach and shopping. A nice perk is the off street parking. Check out the Stockton Room #1 as it has its own private large porch!! The Innkeepers live there and are so very nice as well as their staff. You are made to feel like a part of their family! You will be served a beautiful breakfast to start your relaxing day in Cape May!!!
4.2 on August 30, 2014
The JW Inn is a great home away from home. It is conveniently located in Cape May. A block from the beach and a few blocks to the CM Walking Mall. Breakfasts were delicious and the home is meticulously cared for by the owners.
4.8 on August 17, 2014
We enjoyed our stay at this B&B! Nice rooms, pleasant atmosphere, good food and a great host! We would not hesitate to stay there again next time we visit Cape May.
5 on August 08, 2014
The John Wesley Inn is a delightful place to stay. Within walking distance of so many things, beautiful porch and garden. We have been there twice and will definitely be back. Loved Bonnie and Lance!
4.8 on August 05, 2014
We found the inn lovely, with cozy rooms. Bonnie is a warm and charming hostess, who joins her guests at breakfast. Breakfast itself was delicious and is individually served to each guest. Highly recommended!
4.4 on July 30, 2014
I stood in the Stockton room (balcony room) for a long weekend in July. The room was large and filled with beautiful antique furniture, the picture of the room hardly represents its charm. The whole house is charming and the inn keeper is sweet and attentive. Her breakfast was delicious on both days, the whole experience left us warm and fuzzy inside! Will definitely go back to Cape May and stay at the John Wesley Inn again.
4.6 on July 25, 2014
Stayed for our 30th anniversary late June/early July. Our first time to Cape May. The John Wesley Inn was excellent. We enjoyed the Inn, the time with the owners and other guests as well. I highly recommend this Inn.
5 on July 17, 2014
Stayed at many Cape May B & B's. This is our preferred spot. Great loc, on site parking, clean, very hospitable!
4.2 on July 02, 2014
We had a lovely and relaxing stay at the Inn. This Victorian B&B is ideally located in Cape May, close to all the attractions of the town and beach. Bonnie and Lance go out of their way to be helpful and gracious hosts. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. We will definitely be returning!
4.4 on June 18, 2014
Went to john Wesley for an overnight getaway with my hubby. The place was impeccably clean , our room was quite large and Bonnie and her husband were extremely nice and friendly and we would definitely go back!!

Very nice place, close to the beach. GREAT people!
5 on June 04, 2014
My wife and I have now stayed at the Wesley three times and we progressively enjoy ourselves more with each stay. Bonnie is a fantastic hostess always making us feel welcomed. The breakfasts are great and the rooms well attended. The John Wesley Inn reflects all of what's good about Cape May. If you want a relaxing and enjoyable seashore experience, please make every effort to book time at this charming B&B!
4.4 on June 02, 2014
Great location, beautiful house filled with antiques exquisitely cared for, good breakfast made more enjoyable by eating at big table with all the other guests. Great hosts, great value.
5 on May 28, 2014
We stayed here for Memorial Day 2014 and can't say enough good things about the John Wesley Inn. We rented one of the apartments and it was impeccable! A perfect layout for our needs and the location of this inn exceeds all others. It is walking distance to everything you could possibly need in Cape May. We can't wait to stay here again.
5 on May 09, 2014
We've stayed at several B&B's and this one is top notch. Bonnie, our hostess was amazing. Treated us like family. And is a great cook to boot. Rooms were clean and the whole place just felt so welcoming. And the location is great. You can see the beach from the driveway and only a couple blocks from the Washington St Mall. We just got back and are already planning our next visit to include the John Wesley Inn
5 on April 02, 2014
On a cold and damp March weekend my wife and I stayed at the John Wesley. We were greeted warmly, had a very clean and cozy room, and each morning shared stories with Bonnie who served us a scrumptious breakfast. It was a pleasure and we will definitely return.
5 on March 26, 2014
Bonnie and Lance were wonderful, gracious hosts and the Inn is absolutely beautiful. It is true to the grand Victoria charm of Cape May while being intimate enough to give the feel of being the owners personal guests. A stay at the John Wesley Inn fulfills one's most idealistic, charming, and quintessential bed and breakfast experience. It is a true standout in Cape May.
4.6 on March 02, 2014
Had a fabulous time at the Inn! Such a beautiful, yet so quaint, home. Our room was beautiful. Even though the weather was so cold in Cape May, we had a wonderful stay at the Inn and visiting a couple of wineries nearby. Had a delicious breakfast and had great company. Bonnie (the owner) was very helpful and pleasant!
5 on January 02, 2014
Christmas in Victorian Cape May would not be Christmas if we weren't staying with Bonnie and Lance at the John Wesley Inn. These two go out of their way to make sure your stay at The Inn is every thing you would hope it to be. It's a great location with on-site parking that allows for enjoyable walks to all that Victorian Cape May has to offer. With the Innkeepers making this their house, The Inn is well tended and presents itself more as a home than a B&B. We enjoy relaxing and starting our Christmas season at the John Wesley Inn, before the hustle and bustle of our Christmas season begins.
4.2 on December 28, 2013
Friendly innkeeper. Clean and quiet house. Close to beach and town. In the center of everything. Definitely will be coming back.

The host was extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. The Inn was beautifully decorated and well maintained. The table setting for breakfast was beautiful and the food was exceptional.
4.8 on October 30, 2013
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Bonnie and Lance. The house is meticulously maintained and the décor made us feel as though we had stepped back in time. The room was spacious, romantic, and comfortable. The private porch was a nice addition and we enjoyed our time relaxing outside with beautiful views.

Quiet, private residence with wonderful owners. Great breakfast, close to the beach and downtown. Definatly recommend staying here for a weekend or a week.
5 on October 18, 2013
My husband, Mark and I had a wonderful time (yet again) at the John Wesley Inn. We have been going to Cape May for the past 18 years and have stayed at numerous B&Bs throughout those years. Once we found the John Wesley Inn, there was no other B&B that compared. We have now been staying there for the past 8 years and will continue to return to the John Wesley for years to come. The innkeepers, Bonnie and Lance, are delightful and they make the experience of staying in this beautiful victorian house all the better.
4.6 on September 25, 2013
My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the John Wesley house in Cape May, NJ. We enjoyed our stay and will visit again. Bonnie and Lance are wonderful hosts. Bonnie makes a wonderful breakfast each morning. The John Wesley Inn is extremely charming and the location is wonderful. There is off street parking, a bike shop across the street, and it is within walking distance to the restaurants and the beach.
3.6 on September 22, 2013
The sunroom is a delight, especially for reading as it is better lit and has more comfortable seating than the room.The room was very quiet and very clean as well as spacious, just as advertised.

My husband and I had a wonderful extended weekend in Cape May and our stay at the John Wesley Inn only enhanced our getaway. Bonnie and Lance are delightful people who instantly made us feel welcome in their home. Their house is the epitome of everything Victorian and just what you would expect and want to find in historic Cape May. The breakfasts that Bonnie served were a culinary adventure and something we looked forward to each morning. It was a real delight to meet these wonderful owners as well as the other guests. We will definitely be returning soon, hopefully with friends to have a truly special weekend. Mike and Wendy Woytovich
4.6 on September 11, 2013
Just got back from our second visit to John Wesley Inn. Bonnie and Lance made us feel like we were part of their family. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated with lots of amenities. The Inn is close to the beach and shops. But, it is the memories and warmth of John Wesley Inn that we will take with us. We plan to return regularly. Roxanne and Rene
5 on August 22, 2013
We stayed at the John Wesley Inn for a long weekend of relaxing at the beach and sight seeing around Cape May. It was our first stay in a B&B, and we loved it!! Bonnie and Lance have a beautiful B&B that has been meticulously decorated with Victorian era pieces, while offering the modern comforts we've come to expect. Breakfast each morning was an event for the palate as well as an event for good conversation with fellow guests and our innkeepers. On site, off street parking is a huge plus, as are the complimentary beach equipment and outside shower. Overall, an epic experience that we hope to enjoy again!
4.6 on August 19, 2013
If you want a historic site, close to everything that matters, good food, cleanliness, quiet, and warm hospitality, go ahead and make your reservation. The JW Inn will probably delight you. It delighted me.
5 on August 06, 2013
Bonnie and Lance are great hosts and I will stay with them again
4.6 on August 06, 2013
We recently stayed at the John Wesley house in Cape May, NJ. Bonnie and her staff are so nice and welcoming of all her guest and makes a delicious breakfast each morning. The inn is charming, clean and has a great location- within walking distance to numerous restaurants, shopping and of course the beach. We enjoyed our stay and will visit again.
4.0 on August 04, 2013
Bonnie and Lance are a super friendly host team; very pleasant and ready to please. The most important thing for us is cleanliness and comfort, and this place satisfied us on both counts. The mattress on the bed was perfect - no lumps, bumps or sagging. Will probably visit there again in future.
5 on August 02, 2013
Could not have been more pleased with our accommodations. Our first flooor room with private entrance was spacious, clean and provided privacy. Breakfasts were delicous and included a choice of sweet or savory dishes each morning. Glenn, the innkeeper was attentive and gracious. Proximity to the beach and on site parking always a huge plus for us. We have stayed at The Mooring before, we'll be back and we highly reommend it.
4.6 on August 01, 2013
Well! We've tried to find a place that our friends and aquaintances consider exceptional, and they just don't feel comfortable reccomending the places they have stayed at. We have never experienced such a feeling because we've continually stayed at , and reccomended the John Wesley Inn, managed by by two beautiful people Bonnie & Lance the Innkeepers. We have met people on the street, who asked where they could find a place that would be good, told them about our place of choice, they booked & stayed. We meet these same couples a year or two later and we are told how wonderful the stay was. We stayed over the 4th weekend 2013 had great weather, and Bonnie, Lance & Cindy made our stay fantastic. Oh! I don't want to forget Todd ( Boonie's grandson ) who is always looking to make your stay wonderful by helping with all of your going to the beach needs.
4.8 on July 28, 2013
This B & B was absolutely charming and wonderful! My husband and I will definitely come back here. I enjoyed playing the piano in the parlor, and the dining room was beautiful, and the breakfasts were fantastic! Also enjoyed meeting the other people who were staying at the Inn. Fantastic experience! I was so relaxed and comfortable here; I really enjoyed my stay!
5 on July 28, 2013
This is a place thats romantic, close to everything and where you are treated like a close relative. I cannot begin to describe the warm friendly feeling that the owners show to all their guests. You cannot go wrong by ever staying here.
4.8 on July 22, 2013
Stayed at the John Wesley for our anniversary recently. It was incredible! The Inn itself was gorgeous and I couldn't find anything I didn't enjoy about it. The off street parking was a nice tidbit as well. THE BEST PART - The owners' were impressively hospitable. My other half told the owners I was lactose intolerant so instead of a regular breakfast of cereals and such, they made us something special. There were also plain strawberries instead of chocolates in the room. It truly is the little touches that make things unforgettable. They NAILED it! I would recommend this place to anyone. I love it!!!!!!
4.6 on July 11, 2013
The Inn keepers, Bonnie and Lance, were very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were clean, service was excellent and the breakfasts were delicious. A key benefit was the onsite parking that was provided, especially during the season, as parking is always an issue. We have found our new home away from home in Cape May.
5 on July 07, 2013
...but well worth it. Bonnie and Lance run a meticulously clean and friendly B&B. The place is very well kept. I am a repeat customer and plan to return later this summer. If you don't believe me, read all the ratings on Trip Advisor. Their ratings are off the charts and rightfully so.
4.8 on July 07, 2013
My wife and I made our first visit to Cape May for the July 4th holiday. After researching the many BandB's, we decided upon the John Wesley Inn- which did not disappoint. It is a beautifully restored inn, with large comfortable,well appointed rooms ( wi-fi service was better towards the rear of the building). It is ideally located just steps away from the beach and walking distance to many fine restaurants, the outdoor mall and dinner theater. Breakfasts were wonderful and filling, there was no need to eat again until it was time for afternoon tea on the veranda- where me met new friends and interesting people. Bonnie and Lance were very warm hosts and offered many suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable. We are already planning a return trip in the fall.
4.2 on June 05, 2013
Treated very warmly, Bonnie came out to talk to everyone each morning at breakfast. Any questions were answered and any requests were accommodated if possible. will definitely return
3.0 on June 05, 2013
The location and on sight parking for this B&B was definitely a plus. Our hostess was very friendly. Most of the other guests were repeaters who seem to have a personal relationship with Bonnie....this speaks well for a B&B. Another plus was the ice machine and ice buckets available in the sun room. The breakfasts were standard. We would like to have seen more freshly baked goods. The dining room was somewhat cramped and stuffy.
4.6 on June 03, 2013
Because my wife was recovering from surgery, the innkeepers gave us a parking spot on the street, so that it would be easiest to come and go without having to juggle all the way up and down the driveway. This was unexpected and very kind.
4.8 on May 26, 2013
We had a great time at the inn. Bonnie is a wonderful hostess and the breakfast was outstanding.
4.4 on May 20, 2013
Fantastic Inn! Bonnie is a lovely person and innkeeper. Will be back for sure!

The inn was elegant and nicely done. The dining was delightful and the off street parking is a plus! We would definitely visit again!!
3.2 on May 08, 2013
Our first time overnight in Cape May. The hostess, Bonnie, was very pleasant and willing to help with anything that was needed. The B&B was beautifully restored and we enjoyed checking out all the antiques and the old photos.

Bonnie was a very pleasant host. She provided us with brocures on the local attractions at Cape May. She also served us a delicious breakfast. The Inn was very clean, as was our room. The only downfall of our room was that the bed was not very comfortable and the bathroom was extremely small.

What a beautiful home filled with love and fabulos memories. Every detail in the home was done with such loving care and thoughtfulness. Bonnie is a delightful beautiful soul and it shows with every welcoming way. My husband and I have been going to Cape May format years and we absolutely loved our stay. Anyone who gets the privilege to stay here will defiantly walk away and keep looking back at the memories from the John Wesley House.

We spent a winter weekend here and was pleased to enjoy the only king sized bed in the inn. It was comfy and generous. Bonnie was a gracious hostess and a fine cook! I would highly recommend this lovely place.

From the moment the door is answered you feel like you are home. Bonnie and staff are just wonderful, warm and inviting, the home is beautifully appointed with a gorgeous sun room to sit and relax maybe have a glass of wine. Any questions you have about town will be answered, the Inn is in walking distance of anywhere to go in town. Also, it is immacculate. Can't wait to stay again, we are not going to wait as long until our next visit. One more thing the breakfast is delicious everytime.

The accomondations were execellent as was the quality and presentation of the breakfasts. The on-premise parking was a big selling point. Bonnie, the curator, was extemely accomondating with our reservation and her stories and historical knowledge of Cape May were both entertaining and informative. The attention to detail regarding the Victorian setting was quite impression. The room provided a warm and intimate experience. I'd highly recommend the John Wesley Inn to all B&Ber's, both novices and experts alike.

Very accommodating on late check in. Breakfast was homemade from scratch.

The John Wesley Inn & Carriage House is restored with an amazing level of care you can sense in its photos but which living & experiencing is just thrilling & humbling. It's furnished with beautiful antiques throughout, all historic, all carefully and intelligently chosen, yet has all modern amenities (think, a Sheraton). The entire Inn is spotless. The location is stellar, 2 blocks from many Beach Ave restaurants & the Washington Mall both. Turning left out of the Inn goes to a lovely plaza and turning right is the beach. Couldn't be better. The off-street parking is a big bonus. Bonnie serves a very tasty & homemade gourmet breakfast daily with personal touches that are missing from modern American life. I love the Inn's warmth, emotionally & materially. A sunroom in the uppermost floor is a very relaxing and open area in which to relax, daydream, read & slowly enjoy life's finer points. Host Bonnie & husband Lance make you feel like family, their warm loving and pleasant demeanor are emblematic of the town's lovely vibe. They take care of your every need. My only regret is that we had to leave. What a marvelous and relaxing weekend. Can't wait to come back.

The Inn is a wonderful example of Victorian architecture--it was even pointed out on the Cape May trolley tour. It is well maintained and quite comfortable. There is parking in their spacious driveway so this is a plus. The beach is 1/2 block away and the innkeepers supply towels, beach chairs, etc. Shopping and restaurants are all walking distance. Bonnie and Lance were gracious hosts. We highly recommend it for anyone wanting the full Cape May experience.
4.4 on September 09, 2012
Bonnie and Lance....thank you for another great week in Cape May! It was our third time staying with you at the John Wesley Innn (in the carriage apartment) and each year just gets better. Great job on the renovation of Apartment A. It looks fantastic!! We have already reserved our stay for next year.

The John Wesley is a great place to stay at Cap May . Walk to beach and shopping. The rooms are very nice and CLEAN. Breakfast was great in the dinning room. Bonnie And Lance have a really nice place.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at the John Wesley Inn for our first trip to Cape May. Bonnie, Lance and the entire team were wonderfully helpful and friendly. The inn is located one block from the beach, includes free parking (a hot commodity in Cape May!), offers beach chairs and coolers, and the rooms are spacious with plenty of amenities. Overall, it was a great trip that absolutely exceeded our expectations. Can't wait to go back!
5 on August 13, 2012
My family and I had an extremely happy experience staying at the John Wesley Inn - in their attached apartment B. The apartment was clean, cozy and private. We enjoyed being so close to the beach while being right around the corner from the town and down the street from restaurants and bike rentals. Our apartment also had a very sweet private patio area. It was perfect. We did not dine in the Inn since we were in the apartment, however, this web site will not let me exit without rating the dining experience. I rated "outstanding" because based on everything else, I can't imagine that it would be anything less. I did see the dining room and lovely set table. Also, the B& B was completely gutted and accurately restored in recent years. What I liked about that was that the B&B did not have that musty smell that some of the other B&B's have.
5 on August 09, 2012
If anyone needs a "stress release" The John Wesley Inn is the prescription. From the time we arrived Bonnie & Lance welcomed us into thier lovely Inn. Cleanliness, comfort, friendliness and 5 Star treatment abound. Breakfast served by Cindy is delicious and served in a beautifully decorated dining room. The front porch invites you to sit and relax. We will return! Russ & Jean Z.

Mere words cannot express the enjoyment of our first stay at the John Wesley Inn. The house was beautifully decorated with period furniture and clean as a whistle. Bonnie was extremely accomodating to us and we are sure to other guests as well. A block away from the beach, centrally located within walking distance to restaurants and the shopping mall. Her breakfasts were amazing and she even sat with us, which was fun. Wow, we sound like an advertisement! Please, if you get a chance to go to Cape May, make a stop at the John Wesley Inn and meet Bonnie, she will make you feel as if you were family.

A weekend trip to The John Wesley Inn just steps away from the beach in the historical town of Cape May with shopping, great seafood restaurants and vineyards, near Atlantic City and close enough to Home can provide a much needed vacation! Blue skies, clean air and no sounds of planes or traffic a walking town brimming with hospitality. The John Wesley Inn is centrally located, reasonably priced and the innkeepers, Bonnie and Lance strive to give you a most unique experience. They have apartments just outside the charming multicolored main house that are terrific! We stayed in a beautifully designed two bedroom, two and a half bathroom, fully air conditioned, with balconies and downstairs a full dining room, kitchen and living room all decorated with you in mind! Complete with a fireplace, stereo and state of the art televisions in every room. Impeccable attention to detail. Just pack a bag and forget everything else and visit The John Wesley Inn for a complete, restful, awe inspiring vacation! Everything you could expect from a top Bed and Breakfast and more

What an incredible stay over Memorial Day Weekend in Cape May. Bonnie the innkeeper is incredible and makes you feel like family when you visit. Rooms are very clean and every convenience is available. A beautiful front porch for sitting out in the morning or evenings to relax with a good book. A short block to a beautiful beach area and blocks from some of the best restaurants makes this the best place to stay for an all around great visit to Cape May.

I stayed at the John Wesley for one night while my Fiance was in basic training. Unbelievable room, service, and food. The staff went out of their way for me!! Truly amazing!! Will be going back soon!

My husband and I stayed at the John Wesley Inn in Cape May,New Jersey and it more than lived up to our expectations. The staff met us at the door and from that point until our departure they were wonderful. Laurie gave us ideas about restaurants, sites, where to walk and just an extremely likable, helpful, warm person The perfect Representative for a B&B. The food was fantastic and the Inn was incredible. We felt comfortable;it was warm and cozy. We plan to return to the John Wesley Inn again and again.

Apr 22, 2012 The John Wesley Inn My wife and I like to get an early start on the summer with a stay at one of Cape May’s BEST B&Bs, The John Wesley Inn. We return to the Inn each year because we enjoy how comfortable Bonnie and Lance make the stay. Whether you relax on the inn’s front porch, in Bonnie’s lovely parlor, or in your own room, you feel right at home – but without the worries! Bonnie is a gracious hostess who is eager to accommodate the needs of her guests, and her personal touches distinguish The John Wesley Inn from others we’ve visited. Bonnie and Lance do things right and with extraordinary attention to detail. The inn and rooms are very nicely appointed and superbly maintained. Everything is top-notch from the delicious breakfasts and home-baked goodies to the luxurious bath towels. The Inn’s location is fantastic too with shops, restaurants, and beaches all within easy walking distance. But if you want to take a road trip, no need to worry; there’s on-site parking at The John Wesley, and a spot will be waiting for you when you return.

We had a very quiet, restful stay at the John Wesley Inn. This is just what we were looking for. The innkeepers and staff were very friendly and helpful. Every question and request was answered and fulfilled. Thanks for the 'rest'. We always enjoy Cape May.

Great place. So accommodating. Would definitely recommend.
4.6 on February 29, 2012
My wife and I had a very nice two night stay here last weekend. A beautiful Victorian B&B in an ideal location. Steps to our top floor suite were a little steep but not unexpected. Well worth the climb.
4.4 on February 15, 2012
My fiance and I stayed at this lovely B&B after browsing through Trip Advisor. John Wesley was ranked and deservedly so. Bonnie, the owner, was gracious, sweet and very accomodating. Instead of the standard 2 night min stay, she let us stay for 1 night only. The house itself felt like a museum with historic accents everywhere. And the room... what can I say. The bed was like a cloud; the furniture was tastfully historic; and the fireplace highlighted the romantic nature of the room as well as the reason we went to Cape May in the first place (for Valentine's celebration). I would highly recommend this place to any couple looking to get away from the city and indulge in Victorian romanticism.
4.0 on February 13, 2012
I don't think the innkeeper would mind, so the best way to express how good a place this is to stay, would be to share my thank you email to Bonnie the innkeeper. If you are going to Cape May for any reason, there is no need to look any farther than the John Wesley Inn for someplace incredible to stay. To Bonnie: Thank you for a wonderful stay. It is really hard to say in words, what a good job you do. You have a lovely home, beautiful and comfortable rooms and your breakfasts are incredible. We may only see you once a year during Valentine’s Day weekend, but when we stay we feel like we are staying with family. It is always good to see you. Thank you for a beautiful weekend and we look forward to our next visit. Alicia and I were reflecting on our visits to Cape May the other day and about how we were so lucky to have found the “best” place to stay on our first visit many years ago. We both agreed there was no need to even consider any other options. Why mess with something that is guaranteed to be great. As long as you keep receiving guests, you can count on all of our future business.
5 on February 12, 2012
We enjoy staying at this beautifully restored and maintained victorian inn. It is in a great location and has wonderful amenities. Bonnie, Lance, and the staff are thoughtful to anticipate our needs and to offer suggestions for excursions. We enjoy the Mt. Vernon room in the winter with its cozy sitting room and two fireplaces. The Stockton room is perfect in the summer. We enjoy the private 2nd story porch that accompanies it. There is so much to do and see in Cape May that you will want to come back every year and stay here. This past weekend was our 4th trip since discovering the Inn 3 years ago. We can't wait to visit again.
5 on February 10, 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay and wish we could have stayed longer. We have visited many B&B's in Cape May (our favorite resort town) and this by far, exceeded our expectations! The hospitality was more than we ever could have expected, the room was more luxurious than the website led on and the Inn Keeper, Bonnie was fantastic. Our breakfast just really made the weekend! We can not wait to return. Thank you for making a night away, one to remember!! The Shaw's
5 on February 08, 2012
Bonnie is an excellent host and wonderful cook. I am absolutely planning a trip back to Cape May but most importantly a trip back to the John Wesley. Each room had a fireplace, the queen sized bed was very comfortable, the private bathroom was a great touch and everything was clean and fresh. But most of all, we felt like part of the family and cannot wait to get back. Jim Karney

It was our first time staying at a B&B. So glad we picked the John Wesley Inn. It is a beautiful house, fully decorated. Walking distance to everything. We parked our truck and it didn't move till we checked out. We walked to the beach, we walked to the town. The owner Bonnie is so nice. She makes you feel right at home. Breakfast was fantastic. I think we are going to make it our New Years Eve tradition to stay at the John Wesley Inn each year.

My husband and I stayed one night at the John Wesley Inn in Cape May. I wish we would have stayed more--the Inn was immaculate--loved all the antiques and pictures. The rooms were very clean, Bonnie and Lance were very warm and welcoming people. The Inn was steps away from the beach, 2 minute walk to the Washington Mall and close to restaurants--we parked our car (they have parking available on their property) and walked everywhere. Breakfast was delish!!! We would definitely go back as one night was not long enough!!!

Cape May certainly has it's share of very nice B&B's but the John Wesley Inn is one of the best. Location is 1/2 block from the beach and shopping, and has one of the most down to earth Inn keepers in the town. Rooms are well apportioned and furnished, easy off street parking, great breakfasts too!

Beautiful three-story house. Very authentic and not too showy. Proprietors were lovely people. Hospitable, but not over-doing it. Breakfast was fantastic. Great location, close to the beach and the best pizza in Cape May is down the block. We only stayed one night, but next time we will book ahead and stay longer.

My husband and I were looking for a bed and breakfast in Cape May to stay the first weekend we were married. We were unable to go up during the week due to job conflicts, and we even had to leave late Friday. Bonnie stayed up for us until we arrived late at night. It was so easy getting to her house and it is meticulously well kept. There were all the modern amenities that we could ask for (cable, iPod docking station, fridge) along with on-site parking, short walks to restaurants, Victorian charm, and it was unbelievably close to the beach! On top of that, Bonnie and Lance were gracious and kind hosts. They got us a card to congratulate us on our marriage and exchanged receipes with us at breakfast. All we wanted to do was relax and eat well and that is exactly what we got...and more. How can you beat perfect room, perfect location, perfect company? I would highly recommend this B&B to everyone and I know that my husband and I will be back (perhaps to celebrate our one year anniversary!)

My wife and I enjoyed two nights at the delightful John Wesley Inn earlier this month. We found everything we wanted for a couple of quiet, restful days, and more! The Inn’s location was great- only a block from the beach and a short walk to restaurants and shopping. Our 3rd floor room was clean and well-appointed, with a comfortable bed. We were next to the sunroom, which was wonderful for reading, relaxing, and meeting other guests. Breakfasts were fantastic. Afternoon teas were a special treat. Bonnie and her staff provided first class service, thoughtful advice, and friendly conversation. The John Wesley Inn has our highest recommendation.

What else can I say ... great location, beautiful inn, impeccable decor, great service, and sparkling clean throughout (that's especially important to us) ... what's not to love? We've been to a number of bed & breakfasts over the years & the John Wesley has quickly become our favorite.

My wife and I stayed at the John Wesley Inn for 3 nights the first week of May. From the time I booked the reservation last month until the time we departed on Friday morning, we were pampered with outstanding service from the Innkeepers, Bonnie & Lance. The John Wesley Inn was the most responsive of all the properties that we researched online prior to booking our reservation. Bonnie even called us the day we arrived to be sure that she would be onsite to meet us. The room we stayed in was a classic Victorian, and included a private bath, antique dresser and huge closet space. They served up 3 outstanding breakfasts for us during our stay there, and we had an opportunity to meet the other guests staying at the inn. The guests were delightful company, and we found we shared similar interests in history, arts, fine dining, etc. that is associated with Cape May. I would highly recommend the John Wesley Inn to anyone visiting Cape May.

John Wesley Inn was our first experience at a B&B of any kind. Well, if other B&B's are similar to the experience we had at the John Wesley Inn, then we will make them a staple of our vacationing schedule. We stayed in room #2, The Windsor, and it was a beautiful room with an old time feel. The bed was comfortable and the ceiling fan kept us comfortable. While the room had an antique feel, it was definitely not antiquated in it's amenities with a window air conditioner, flat screen tv, iPod docking station and fireplace. The room and bathroom were both exquisitely cleaned and fresh. The innkeeper's were wonderful. Bonnie especially, who spent time during breakfast each morning to talk to each guest and get to know them. The food was wonderful and the other support staff was helpful and friendly. The location is extremely well placed. Walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shopping, and bars. It's only a short 5 minute drive to go to Cape May Point State Park where the historical lighthouse is located. It was at this lighthouse that I proposed to my now fiancée. Bonnie was extremely excited for us and even sent us a congratulations card after we left. The wonderful setting combined with excellent service will keep us coming back to the John Wesley Inn for years. -Jon Smith and Crystal Jones

This was our first stay at the John Wesley and will also be our last. We stayed in #5 The new Mt. Vernon suite, no microwave or mini refrigerator ...... we had to keep our champagne, strawberries ect in the little fridge at the end of the hallway in the main "lunch room" and that didn't even have a microwave oven, luckily we were the only guests at the time. Not even ice to bring back to our room. The bathroom was described as having "hydrotherapy whirlpool tub that is found in premier hotels and luxury resorts and spas throughout the world" had a tub barely big enough for one. , cheap lino floor and no vanity. There was no photo of the bathroom online, and since we had stayed at other B & B in the area that had beautiful luxurious bathrooms (huge room, 2 person whirpool tub and carrera marble) we assumed that this would be comparable, because of the price charged.... no comparison! The afternoon tea consisted of our choice of a bag of tea and a cookie from Delta airlines (no joke, the name was right on the wrapper!!)

I was fortunate enough to come across the John Wesley Inn on your website and booked last-minute reservations for a quick getaway with my children during their winter break. It was fantastic!! The John Wesley Inn has two apartments, which are detached from the mainhouse. The apartment we stayed in was highly functional with a full kitchen, and also very pretty with Victorian decor and 2 fireplaces....one upstairs and one downstairs. The Innkeepers, Bonnie and Lance, were so gracious and friendly...we felt welcomed from the moment we stepped inside until the moment we exchanged goodbyes! This is one family who will definitely be back!! This Bed and Breakfast is, in one word, WONDERFUL!!

This home is so very well detailed, furnished and maintained that it's easy to imagine that one has gone back in time 100 years. The breakfasts were delicious and so plentiful that we did not want to eat lunch! The hosts are great folks and we enjoyed lingering over the maginificently decorated dining room table after breakfast sharing stories with Bonnie. The hosts drove through the Christmas blizzard from North Jersey to ensure that our experience was outstanding. We will be back.

Our stay was truly amazing! We were so well taken care of. The breakfast was an unforgetable experience. I highly recommend The John Wesley Inn! Tracey, Ron, Nick and Elena, NY

It doesn't get any better! In the past we have stayed at the Queen Victoria (twice), and The Main Stay Inn along with other B&B's in several other states and although our experiences there were fine, The John Wesley was by far the best. Most comfortable, meticulous accommodations. Not to mention that the Inn Keepers, Bonnie and Lance are absolutely delightful people. Very friendly, professional, and accommodating. The best choice we could have made to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. I can honestly say that this is the first place...EVER...that I have felt "totally" comfortable at. The Pontin's first rate help Patricia, does an excellent job ensuring that comfort. "Muchas Gracias" Don't hesitate, this little gem is your ticket to a most pleasurable little getaway. Thank You Again, Bonnie, Lance, and Patricia! P.S. Awesome breakfast! We'll be back! ;-)

If you have a personal "bucket List", be sure to list Cape May at Christmas. And when you go, be sure to stay at the John Wesley Inn. It is a glorious Victorian inn, perfectly appointed and located in the heart of the historical district. In addition to its existing beauty, the interior is beautifully decorated for the Christmas Season. The whole area is decorated but this inn is special. Its atmosphere takes you back 100 years and the hospitality is without equal. A lingering gourmet breakfast sets the tone for the day. Innkeeper Bonnie visits with the diners and soon we were all sharing Christmas stories like old friends. It's hard to put in words, but you can actually feel the Christmas atmosphere in the room and throughout the inn. It was a perfect Holiday weekend.

My husband is not a bed & breakfast kind of guy. Wherever we go we always stay at a luxury hotel. He reluctantly agreed to a stay at the John Wesley Inn. What a fabulous first experience! The inn is both lovely and romantic; it's also within short walking distance of both the beach and shopping. Our day began with the aroma of fresh coffee and home cooking. Then we strolled along the beach and sat on a bench enjoying the views. We shopped in the village, dined at a local restaurant and then ended our day sitting on the inn's veranda looking at the stars. A great amenity of the John Wesley is that they provide parking which is really convenient. And as far as the owners, Bonnie and Lance; they are both extremely warm and hospitable people......we will definitely be back!

We came down over Thanksgining weekend. The location is perfect. After a warm welcome, we made ourselves at home. We felt very comfortable spending Thanksgiving day in our room catching up on much needed sleep. No one bothered us, but we had hot coffee and wonderful nut bread waiting for us in the morning. The rooms are beautiful. We were a little disappointed that we didn't ask for a room with a sitting area though. The Inne was spotless! We had a very comfortable bed and slept like babies! In the morning we had a fabulous breakfast, met some lovely people and became more aquainted with our Hostess, Bonnie. We had a lovely stay and will definitely retun!

I was looking for a place to go for Thanksgiving weekend and found The john Wesley Inn on the internet. The reviews were terrific so I booked a room. The Inn was completely decorated for Christmas with a beautiful tree in the living room. It looked like you stepped back 100 years into a Victorian mansion. The entire town was lit up for the holidays; it was amazing. You could actually feel the holiday atmosphere in the Inn. Bonnie and Lance were great hosts. The breakfast was absolutely great. Crystal and fine china made it a special event. Bonnie came out and visited with everyone at the end of the meal and soon we were all sharing stories with each other of past Holidays. It was a wonderful way to spend time with a loved one at this beautiful B&B. I highly recommend it and will be staying there again!

The inn is conveniently located to everything that Cape May has to offer, they have on site parking, super clean rooms, fantastic breakfasts and an amazing hostess... what could be better? Don't wait ... get out of the rat race and book your stay now! :)

I originally booked a stay at the John Wesley Inn to get away with my fiance for his birthday. We decided to get married there. Bonnie and Lance helped us do it. She helped me get a minister to perform the ceremony and they agreed to be our witnesses. On saturday, Oct. 23rd, we got married right in front of the fireplace, took some beautiful pictures then went on a horse a carriage ride. Bonnie helped us make the perfect choice for our wedding dinner and we were treated like royalty. It was truely a perfect day. Bonnie and lance treated us like we have known eachother for years and everytime I called her with a question, she always talked to me. The Inn was romantic and exactly what I was looking for to get away. I will never forget that day. We will be spending every anniversary there. We were treated like family and the inn was beautiful. I recommend any couple to have the experience that we had. Thank you again, Bonnie and Lance, for making our weekend perfect. Lori and David Wagner

My husband, Mark and I have been staying at the John Wesley Inn for the past 5 years. Having stayed at several other B&Bs in Cape May prior to staying at the John Wesley, there's no doubt that the John Wesley has by far been the best B&B we have stayed in. The attention to detail in our room, the entire house and the delicious breakfast, together with the care and gracious hospitality extended to all their guests by the owners, cannot compare to any other B&B in Cape May.

We stayed during the first week of October. Except for the modern electronic addtions(air conditioning, TV, Stereo) being at the inn was like stepping back in time. The beakfasts and the snacks were fantanastic and the innkeepers were friendly and able to provide insights into activities to pursue during our stay.

My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our stay. The location cannot be beat! Bonnie and Lance and all the staff were great. The John Wesley Inn is a classic B&B. I can't wait to go back!

The inn is very well kept, and the owners were able to accommodate us at a moments notice. Parking at the inn is a bonus!! The room we were in was spectacular, but a few amenities could be improved upon. For example, afternoon tea was minimal with no beverage. We weren't sure how to contact the owners if needed, and they weren't readily available throughout the stay. Breakfast was sit-down style at 9:00, where we prefer buffet and the option of going out on the porch to enjoy if we want.

We recently had a very enjoyable stay at the John Wesley Inn. We always stay at B&B's but this one is exceptional. We highly recommend it and look forward to our next visit. R/P/D

This B&B was perfect for our first of many trips down by the beach. We were greeted by friendly in-keepers, and guests. Felt like a home away from home, we will definitely make the JWI our yearly labor day spot. Thanks again Bonnie, from A&R (happy couple) the Carriage house. Take care

When you enter this Inn you literally step back 100 years. It is the jewel of Cape May. The rooms, service and breakfasts were Outstanding. If you want a beautiful B&B in a great town, here is where you should be. Can't wait to go back!

The hosts are wonderful, there when you need them but not intrusive. We had a real special family week in August 2009, and the accomodations and lovely touches of the John Wesley Inn made us feel very special. The location was perfect - a short walk to the beach and close enough all the activities and merchants to make it easy and fun for 3 generations of our family. -- John Osborn

My husband and I unexpectedly happened upon this beautiful Victorian inn at Cape May, New Jersey on October 17, 2008. From the moment we entered this charming elegantly decorated home with all its artistic attention to detail and furnishings of the period, we knew that we wanted to remain the week-end and experience the ambience. We stayed in the carriage house portion of the inn. The cozy living room and kitchen areas were inviting and warm featuring a spiral stairway to the second floor. The bedroom with its vaulted ceiling was grand. Victorian furnishings were just perfect adding to the atmosphere. The "Romeo and Juliet" balcony overlooking the quaint rooftops toward the ocean was a wonderful surprise especially welcoming the morning light. In addition to learning about a bit of local town history, we enjoyed the company of other guests and our gracious hosts, Bonnie and Lance Pontin, at a divine breakfast in their dining room. We enthusiastically recommend The John Wesley Inn and we look forward to our next visit. Susan and Rick DeLeon

My daughter and I had our first mother/daughter weekend get-away and decided to stay at a B&B in Cape May. We could not have picked a better place. The accomodations and food were great and a perfect spot for shopping, restaurants, and the beach..we had it all. Bonnie and Lance were the best hosts and their home was just fantastic. Melissa and I decided to make this a yearly vacation and we will definitly book our trip at the John Wesley Inn again. Thank you Bonnie and Lance...our first mother/daughter weekend was a memorable one.
