quick getaway

Had a wonderful stay at John Wesley Inn. Room #3 was beautifully decorated and very large. We have stayed in many B&B's in Cape May and this was the most spacious. Food delicious. Hostess very helpful and friendly.

Wonderful Anniversary

My wife and I stayed with Bonnie at her beautiful home to celebrate our 30th anniversary and we had a wonderful time. We were warmly met by Bonnie at our arrival and she showed us around both the house and our room (the Mt Vernon). The room was bright, spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated. The morning breakfast was great (I want that waffle recipe!) and was a perfect way to start the day. I would certainly recommend this B&B to anyone.

Great place, great time

My wife and I stayed for two nights after our wedding. Not only was the room beautiful (especially the second-floor porch), but the location was perfect. Everything we wanted to do was walkable - beach, dining, shopping, bike rental - we didn't get in the car even once. It was a wonderful place to spend a few very special days!

Loved the breakfast and cheese and wine at 5 pm, and of course the hot cookies at 8 pm! Clean and classy decorative touches for the holiday!

A Beautiful Stay

Bonnie and Lance sure know how to treat people. This will be my second time spending a weekend at the John Wesley Inn. I enjoyed the hospitality and comfort. Breakfast was a beautiful setting as well as the environment in the living room. I would often read/look at events in Cape May magazines before dinner while the tree lit and the Christmas music playing in the background. Such a peaceful place. Bonnie even made me afternoon tea because I liked sitting in the living room for an hour before dinner. It was lovely.
