Great Escape

We needed to get away and this was an ideal place to do just that. Jan and Mark were great hosts. Jan's breakfasts were magic and Mark's coffee was the perfect complement.

Relaxing get a way

Just as the other reviews say.... great bed and breakfast. Mark and Jan are truly warm and welcoming hosts.. Enjoyed every detail of this charming bed and breakfast. Property so well maintained and groomed. Peace and quiet was sought and I found it here at the Luther Ogden Inn. Bischwind

Great Stay

4.8 on August 04, 2017

Great B&B. Wonderful owners who were great hosts. Clean rooms. Amazing front porch that was so relaxing. Breakfast each morning was delicious. Jan and Mark made our stay so enjoyable. Great location in downtown Cape May. Would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area.

3rd visit

5 on August 01, 2017

Jan makes a truly great breakfast, this was our 3rd year and another very enjoyable stay.

Great B&B

Wonderful stay at Luther Ogden Inn. Breakfast seas awesome and delicious. Nice porch for sitting outside. Jan and Mark were great hosts.

Economical B&B

3.4 on December 07, 2016

Stayed here for a weekend with my husband. Inn keepers were very nice and they did provide an excellent breakfast. The room we stayed in was the Buttercup room. It was very musty and there was no place to put any of my toiletries. I was not able to relax in my room the way I had anticipated. Location was great very close to beach and we walked every where.

Pleaant and cozy stay.

3.0 on November 27, 2016

We had a pleasant stay in this cozy B&B. Close enough to shops and dining. Room was small but comfy.

Great every time!

5 on August 27, 2016

Been staying at the Luther Ogden Inn for 14 years. Jan and Mark are wonderful hosts and Jan makes the best breakfast in Cape May, using herbs and veggies Mark grows. I could just live on the porch! Easy walk to the beach and shopping. Charming house. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Innkeeper Response
Having you stay at the Luther Ogden Inn is like having an old friend visit! You love our porch as much as we do. It's always a pleasure to see you and catch up.

Last Minute Decision

4.0 on August 22, 2016

We've been going to cape may for about 20 years and have stayed in different bnb's. The Luther Ogden was well situated just a few blocks from the sea and from the pedestrian mall. We knew when we booked it that our room was the smallest. So it was. But perfectly adequate for a short stay. Great cross ventilation and AC that we could control ourselves. Breakfasts were very tasty and our hosts, Jan and Mark very sociable and helpful. When I mistakenly left my keys in the drawer, they found them and mailed them back to me which was a great relief.

Very comfortable and relaxing stay.

4.2 on July 24, 2016

Within walking distance to beach, eating and shoppimg.

You will not be disappointed!!

4.8 on July 20, 2016

The Luther Ogden Inn is in the heart of Cape May. It is situated near the beach, shops and plenty of fine dining and pub style restaurants. However, it is the breakfast that is served each morning on the rap-around porch that makes this inn very special. The owners are very delightful and have an extensive knowledge of Cape May. You will not be disappointed with their hospitality and friendliness.

Just what we needed!

3.6 on May 25, 2016

We booked last minute, after we realized we had failed to make a reservation in town for the wedding we were to attend. Jan met us at the door, gave us the details and kindly directed us to a few spots in town. The room was small, but very comfortable, tidy and quiet. Lovely home and innkeepers! Oh, and the zucchini frittata was spectacular for breakfast. Really, I would pay to just have breakfast here again!

Innkeeper Response
My award winning Zucchini Frittata is one of my favorites, too. We grow our own zucchini, onions, tomatoes and fresh herbs for a tasty farm-to-table experience! We're glad you enjoyed your stay.

Christmas weekend in Cape May

3.6 on December 16, 2015

We had a great weekend. The innkeeper Jan was very hospitable and welcoming. The room was small but comfortable. Good there was a portable heater in the room as the house itself was very cool

Innkeeper Response
Christmas season is Cape May is magical. The Candlelight House Tours are beautiful, the Christmas Parade is small town America at its finest, and the trolley rides are geared to showcase all of the decorated homes. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We do not have any portable heaters anywhere in the house. Each room has an electric fireplace with realistic looking flames with an optional heat producing switch.

Great Stay in Beautiful Cape May

5 on October 15, 2015

A very needed getaway turned out to be a very relaxing visit to Cape May. The Innkeepers were like old friends and accommodating in every way. Our room suited us perfectly. The breakfast each morning was fantastic. You will enjoy your stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your enthusiastic review! Actually, our return customers have become friends over the years. We enjoy catching up with them each time they arrive.

- Jan (innkeeper)

Comfortable and welcoming

5 on August 27, 2015

Wonderful place to spend a few days at the beach! Breakfast provided by hosts was excellent - and the beach is just a block away. Would definitely stay at this lovely Inn again- Jan and Mark are very gracious hosts.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the 5 star review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at the Luther Ogden. Hope to see you again in the future!

- Jan (innkeeper)

Wonderful location with no evening driving needed

3.6 on August 09, 2015

Lovely old turn of the century house. The attic space has been converted into four guest rooms rather cleverly. Rooms could have been bigger but were comfortable enough for sleeping and showering etc. I enjoyed the ambiance of the place and the old fashioned courtesies shown by the owners. They enjoy sitting on their wrap around porch chatting with guests, and it was a most welcoming place in general. Breakfast is AT 9 am - don't be late! We sat eating and talking with other guests - most enjoyable overall. On the porch you can hear the ocean - two easy blocks away. No need to drive in the evening - we ate at two outstanding restaurants, both within easy walking distance. Nice touch in the room - a multi USB outlet, making a gadget nut like me very happy.

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Our porch is great....everyone loves it! Just to clarify, our rooms were converted from a spacious 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen and living room. We were able to make 4 guest rooms and a Hospitality Room.

- Jan (innkeeper)

Very pleasant stay

4.2 on August 04, 2015

Nice old turn of the century house. 4 rooms all on top floor. Breakfast was outstanding. Location superb for beach and walking to dining and shopping.

Innkeeper Response
You are exactly right! The Luther Ogden Inn was built in 1900 making it 115 years old. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay, and we appreciate the review.

- Jan (innkeeper)

Very nice inn!

4.6 on June 20, 2015

We had a very nice time staying at the Luther Ogden Inn. The room was quite comfortable although all bedrooms are on the third floor. (we got our exercise!) Although there was no enclosed shower outside, we had an enjoyable time with lovely hospitality.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our inn. We enjoyed sharing our B&B with you! We hope to see you again in Cape May.

Relax in Cape May

4.8 on May 24, 2015

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at the Luther Ogden Inn. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the Inn. The owners, Jan and Mark are lovely people; Jan makes delicious breakfasts! We highly recommend staying here and would stay again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and took the time to leave a review.

Relaxing, enjoyable stay!

5 on May 11, 2015

Jan and Mark, the inn owners, are very personable. The guest room was clean, bright and spacious. Jan's breakfasts were absolutely divine! They were not only delicious, but beautifully presented each morning. The inn is only two blocks from the beach and walking distance to the Washington Mall and many other shops and restaurants. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere and highly recommend the Luther Ogden Inn to future travelers.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your fantastic review of our inn! We really enjoy what we do and are glad our enthusiasm shows through. We look forward to your next visit.

A wonderful stay!

4.8 on May 04, 2015

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the quaint Luther Ogden Inn. The location was perfect; within walking distance to the main promenade and gorgeous beaches; within driving distance from nature trails and historic landmarks. We had a wonderful time getting to know the friendly innkeepers and felt oh so at home. Would definitely recommend to a couple looking for a quiet, romantic getaway!

Innkeeper Response
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We think our location is perfect ...close to everything and located on one of the prettiest and quiet streets in Cape May. Thank you for taking the time to say such nice things about us and the Luther Ogden Inn.

- Jan (innkeeper/owner)

Great hospitality, clean rooms, outstanding breakfast...what more can you ask for!

5 on December 17, 2014

1st time get-away to Cape May to take in the sights & sounds of the Christmas season & we were not disappointed! The Luther Ogden met all of my expectations. As stated in my comment title...great hospitality, clean rooms, outstanding breakfast...what more can you ask for! Jan & Mark are wonderful hosts! Looking forward to returning to the Luther Ogden for our next stay!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! We enjoyed meeting you, too! Best wishes for a Happy New Year!

Friendly, Home Away From Home B&B

5 on December 03, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed the holiday decorations at the Inn and around town during our stay Thanksgiving weekend. We especially enjoyed the conversation with Jan, Mark, and the other guests while we sat and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast which was exceptional.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! Christmas is Cape May is a very special place. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again some time!

One Great Stay in Cape May

5 on October 28, 2014

Jan and Mark run a first-class establishment; homey atmosphere and very friendly. The breakfasts were "to-die-for." Jan is a truly superb chef. The Luther Ogden Inn offers great value and is at the top of my list for a return visit to Cape May.

Lovely B&B

4.4 on October 23, 2014

Beautiful inn near the beach and center of town. Room was rather small, on the 3rd floor, and the sink was outside the bathroom, but it was comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast was delicious. It's only served at 9AM, so you're eating with all the other guests at the same table, which was quite enjoyable. The owners are very friendly and hospitable. It's also a good value.

Mary and Tom

4.4 on September 06, 2014

We found this place online which always creates a small feeling of uncertainty. The owners were pleasant and hospitable in every way. Our room was clean and comfortable with the quietest A/C I have ever known. Easy walk to a beautiful beach. The town is exceptional. Owners of the many Victorian homes keep them in tip-top condition and attractively landscaped. Choice of many restaurants.

3.8 on September 01, 2014

Staying with Jan and Mark was like staying with family. It was very comfortable and yet, no drama that normally comes with family! :-) The food was very tasty and they were accommodating to dietary needs. Jan is very knowledgeable about the area and was willing to suggest places to eat.

Great people, location, house and value

4.8 on August 11, 2014

We stayed thurs anf fri and checked out on sat. The rooms were clean and neat. the house is historic, well kept and grand. Breakfast was top notch. Rooms are two flights up , could be difficult for some, but the stair landing offers a nice veiw of the neighborhood. I thought the pricing was very reasonable. highly recomended. Oh and the innkeepers were friendly, courteous and helpfull with local knowledge..

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay!

Romantic Getaway in Cape May

4.6 on July 24, 2014

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Cape May this year. We were looking for the comfort and personal touch of a quaint bed and breakfast close to the beach, and the Luther Ogden Inn fit the bill perfectly. We stayed in Room 2, which features a very comfortable king size bed, private bath with medium-sized shower, sink, and air conditioner. The room was small but comfortable, and the house itself was very warm and homey. The only complaint I had was that while the air conditioner cooled the room, it was still quite humid. This, however, was a function of the weather and not the inn itself. The owners, Jan and Mark, were lovely and hospitable. Jan is a walking encyclopedia on Cape May and a welcome resource for my husband and I, as this was our first visit to the area. Her cooking was outstanding. On the first morning, she served homemade zucchini frittata and blueberry coffee cake and cinnamon raisin french toast and Canadian bacon on the second. Also, the stay was an incredible value for the price. The inn is located only a 3-minute walk from the pedestrian mall and a 1-minute walk from the beach. So, the location was perfect, the room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was wonderful, and the owners were very charming. I would definitely recommend staying at the Luther Ogden Inn, and my husband and I plan to do so on our next trip to Cape May.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your positive review. We are glad you selected the Luther Ogden for your anniversary getaway! We had a fun group and a lot of laughs at breakfast. Again, Happy Anniversary and hope to see you in the future!

- Jan (innkeeper)

Nice place, great breakfast!

3.4 on July 22, 2014

The Luther Ogden Inn is located on a quiet street close to all the action...that is, action by Cape May standards. Our room was quiet and comfortable; on the small side but as expected for a home this old. Jan and Mark were gracious hosts, with deep knowledge of the Inn's history and lots of contacts with local restaurants, wineries and shopping. Best of all, their breakfasts were out of this world!

Wonderful Experience

4.4 on June 15, 2014

We travel often but only once stayed at a B&B so we didn't know what to expect. We had a wonderful experience at the Luther Ogden Inn the middle of June 2014. The room was comfortable and nicely decorated. The breakfast served on the large front porch was first class. But the best part of the stay was the warm hospitality of owners Jan and Mark. We really enjoyed our weekend in Cape May and look forward to staying at the Luther Ogden Inn again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the excellent review. We enjoyed meeting you, too. We look forward to seeing you again.

A Relaxing Getaway

5 on March 09, 2014

The Luther Ogden Inn is located close to the beach and some quaint shops. The owners, Jan and Mark, were very friendly and gave us some suggestions of things to do in the area. The food was excellent, and just sitting relaxing on the wide front porch was a pleasure. We plan to return.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. We love Cape May and are thrilled when our guests have a pleasant and enjoyable stay. We hope to see you again soon!

- Jan (Owner)

Good mid-price choice.

3.4 on January 11, 2014

Nice small inn in convenient location. Our room was very small. Delicious breakfast, but only served at 9 - later than I prefer. We stayed on the Friday after Christmas and this was one of the few places that didn't require a 2 night stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We do appreciate it. You do know that you selected our smallest, least expensive room. We price it accordingly, and many guests select it for the value. We hope to see you again!

- Jan (Owner)

Excellent location, accommodations, price & breakfasts! Jan & Mark are very personable & helpful. My first stay at a B&B and enjoyed it thoroughly! Opened the bedroom windows to breath in the ocean air & hear seagulls. Shower is nice size. Can't go wrong at this Inn.

4.0 on July 16, 2013

Very comfortable. Air conditioning is great. No closet and tough to hang clothes. No vanity to place toiletries on. All in all very good and I would definitely stay there again. Gourmet breakfast. Buy a better brand of coffee for breakfast. Great location close to the beach and restaurants. Very quiet. The porch is outstanding.

Cape May Weekend

4.2 on June 12, 2013

I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. It is close to the beach and the Cape May Mall is only about 4 blocks away. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious and the room was nice.

close to everything, great breakfast, very pleasent stay

Lovely B&B, best area of town

Our hosts were so nice and very accommodating. Enjoyed a wonderful breakfast feast.

Very friendly B&B

4.8 on December 23, 2012

This is the friendliest B&B I have stayed at. The breakfast is among the best I have ever had. The location is very nice, in a residential neighborhood two blocks from the beach and only a few blocks from the walking mall. I plan to return

Enjoyable October Getaway

4.6 on October 18, 2012

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Luther Ogden Inn in October. It was a last minute reservation but Jan and Mark were very flexible on arrival time. The room was cosy, quiet and warm and we enjoyed the house's Cape May decor and its balcony. It was only a short walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Breakfast was great and Jan and Mark were great conversation and helpful on where to go and made us a reservation for dinner nearby. We hope to return!


4.8 on September 07, 2012

Loved the wonderful & peaceful atmosphere. Loved the big porch where we ate the scrumptious breakfast. It was a nice way to start the day eating & talking to the other guests & owners.

Lovely summer stay

3.8 on August 27, 2012

Luther Ogden Inn was a great place to stay for the summer in Cape May. Only a short walk to the beach, and on-site parking makes it easy to come and go as needed. Our innkeepers were more than helpful and gracious, and the breakfasts on the large front porch were outstanding. One small suggestion: a Keurig coffeemaker in the hospitality suite would be a great addition that your guests would really appreciate.

great location, wonderful hosts

5 on August 20, 2012

close to beach and washington mall, hot homemade breakfast, Jan and Mark very knowledgeable about town and area.

Nice, affordable option in Cape May

2.8 on August 07, 2012

My partner and I had a fine stay at the Luther Ogden Inn. It was one of the more affordable options we found, which made sense once we showed up; there aren't a lot of fancy frills here. The rooms are basic, decorated, as you'd expect, in the Victorian style. Our teeny abode was fitted with wicker furniture — a somewhat comfy bed, small desk and dresser — and there was a nice-sized closet to store our luggage. Some of the niceties included self-controlled air-conditioning, a mini fridge in close proximity to the room, complimentary beach chairs, super-easy access to the beach and a thoughtful breakfast prepared every morning (at 9 a.m. on the dot!) by the friendly, often chatty owner. It won't be the most luxurious stay of your life, but this is a nice option if you're looking for something reasonably priced, homey and close to the beach.

very happy!

4.6 on July 16, 2012

First time at a bed and breakfast. Room was cleaner thansome 5 star hotels we have been to! Owners were very friendly. Privacy was respected even had a back staieway if we didn't want to use the front. Unfortunately we didn't eat breakfast there because it was served at 9:00 a.m. and we wanted to start the day earlier since we only had 3 days of vacation. I will say the food did smell really good though! Walking distance to all main areas and just a couple blocks from the water. Would definitely stay again.

Awesome b&b in Cape May, NJ!

4.6 on July 10, 2012

My husband and I have been staying at the Luther Ogden Inn for years! Jan and Mark are spectaclar hosts and really make us feel like family every time we stay there! The rooms are private, clean and spacious as well as include cable tv and AC! They only have 4 guestrooms so it is never loud or feel crowded. A small group makes it easy to enjoy Jan's wonderful breakfast on their wrap around porch. Located only a block from the beach and with off street parking it really couldn't be an easier choice! We love staying at Luther Ogden Inn and would recommend it to everyone!

Wonderful stay at Luther Ogden

4.0 on July 07, 2012

Once again our stay at the Luther Ogden was great. My husband and I were there the week of 6/18/12 and this was our second visit. As always the rooms were clean and the inn is conveniently located (i.e., one block from the beach and a few short blocks from the Washington Street Mall). Jan and Mark were very friendly and helpful. Jan is also a wonderful cook. Her blueberry french toast was fantastic. We highly recommend the Luther Ogden.

Very Pleasant

It was a great experience. Looking forward to going back!

The only place we stay at in Cape May

5 on June 21, 2012

My wife and I are repeat customers at the Luther Ogden Inn. This time we were there during the hottest days of the year so far. We stayed in room 2 which was very comfortable with great air conditioning. Jan and Mark are very nice hosts and easy to talk to. They are very helpfull with information regarding places to eat and things to do. We will be back again.

Beautiful and charming B&B

4.6 on June 17, 2012

Experienced 2 unforgettable nights in charming accomadation and surrounding. Warm and friendly B&B host Jan & Mark!! I can recommend this adress 100%!!!

I love this place!

5 on June 02, 2012

This is a charming and comfortable B&B. The innkeepers, Jan and Mark, are so nice, and full of great advice about activities and dinner restaurants - talking to them made me feel like I was an old friend. Jan is a wonderful cook - the breakfasts on the gorgeous front porch were yummy and imaginative, and lasted me through the day. That wraparound porch is awesome for hanging out or enjoying a cocktail. The location is great, with free parking - a real plus in Cape May. The rooms are pleasant and clean, bed very comfortable - I slept better there than at home. I can't wait to go back!


5 on January 04, 2012

My husband & I stayed here with both sets of parents for a Christmas in Cape May weekend. The inn is VERY cozy and the rooms were clean and quaint. Jan & Mark, the innkeepers were very good in letting us know the best places to eat and other local information. I would highly recommend this great B&B!

christmas visit

3.8 on December 07, 2011

innkeepers Jan and Mark are very personable, breakfasts were phenomenal. While we totally agree with going "green" when you are treating yourself to a BnB week end you look for a bit of luxury. The rooms were nice however needed TLC with towels being rough and only one towel per person and wall paper could have used some glue in spots. A chair in the room would have been nice to sit and put on shoes, etc. Rooms were quaint and bed was extremely comfortable. Very good value for the price.

Excellent B & B!

5 on November 05, 2011

My husband and I decided to go to Cape May for a Christmas weekend for December of 2000. We stayed at the Luther Ogden Inn and have been going there every year since then. This year will be our 12th time there. Jan and Mark, the innkeepers, have always been very hospitable. Their house is beautiful; it is still my favorite house out of all of the ones I've seen on the house tours. We look forward to going there every year. Diane Zih

Great B&B Experience!

4.0 on September 27, 2011

My husband and I had a gift certificate from and decided to use it in Cape May. We had never been to a B&B before and didn't know what to expect, but we chose The Luther Ogden Inn, and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. This jewel is the only inn on the quiet street and is conveniently located close to the beach and walking mall. Jan and Mark Pask were welcoming and made us feel right at home. We stayed in Room 2 which was comfortable and clean, and we were happy to have a private bath. Jan is an excellent cook, and breakfast on both days was better than we could have gotten in many restaurants. We loved the wraparound porch for eating, drinking and relaxing, and we enjoyed spending time with the innkeepers. We have only good things to say and are already planning our next trip!

"Wonderful place to stay. This is our fourth time."

4.6 on August 21, 2011

We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are pretty and very clean. The innkeepers are very hospitable. The innkeeper Jan is very friendly and helpful in her input about activities and restaurants in Cape May. The breakfast is homemade, delicious and has fresh fruit. Jan was unusually considerate and accomodating to all of the guests. The porch is picturesque and relaxing.The location is two blocks to the beach and has on site parking. Overall, a great place to stay. Elise and Mike

Can't wait to return!!

4.0 on August 12, 2011

This is one of the most charming places in Cape May ever! The room was cozy, comfy and clean. On top of that, the innkeepers, Jan & Mark were as charming as the room. While sipping my tea in the early morning, I sat on their lovely, expansive wrap-around porch enjoying the salty ocean breeze and smelling those wonderful kitchen scents of breakfast. Delicious and delightful. I can't wait to return!

Great time in Cape May

4.8 on August 02, 2011

Exterior was very welcoming & well-landscaped. Host & hostess were accommodating & friendly. Food was excellent. Would highly recommend & would stay there again.

Wonderful B&B

4.6 on July 31, 2011

The Luther Ogden B&B Inn was a most enjoyable experience. Jan & Mark were perfect hosts, friendly & helpful. They treated us like friends and we parted feeling as though we made new friends. The room was very clean and the food was marvelous.

Innkeepers were friendly, rooms were clean & breakfast was fantastic. What more do you need!

There must be better options...

2.2 on July 24, 2011

The Inn itself is just OK, the innkeepers are something else. Think of visiting eccentric relatives, only in this case you are paying for the experience. The rooms are small and in need of refreshing. Our room had an old rug in the bathroom that appeared to have been there for quite a few years. I wouldn't return to stay here but loved the area and will look for another place next year.

Innkeeper Response
I am so sorry you did not like the bathroom step-out mat in your bathroom. All of our little rugs were replaced on the Memorial Day Weekend. Your rug was no more than 7 weeks old. As I respond to this review, we have 3 out of our 4 rooms occupied with return guests. After 14 years in the business, we must be doing something right. I am truly surprised that you considered your room to be small. It had 2 beds (one king and one twin), a dresser, a night stand, a small table, a fireplace, a floor lamp,a TV, and a large shower that could easily hold 6 people. Even though you state that you would not return to the inn, we would welcome you with the gracious hospitality our inn is known for.

- Jan Pask (innkeeper)

Jan and Mark are great hosts

4.2 on July 23, 2011

This was our first stay at a B&B in Cape May. The room was very clean and neatly decorated. The bed was very comfortable. Jan and Mark were very down to earth and sociable. The breakfasts were outstanding. As we have no other Inn in Cape May to compare this to I would say our stay was very pleasant.

Terrific B & B Experience

4.6 on July 21, 2011

Beautiful Victorian with large breeze-cooled porch a block from the beach in the middle of a lovely neighborhood. The breakfasts were creative and delicious. The owners exceptional--charming, helpful but not intrusive.

An Enjoyable Weekend in Cape May

3.2 on July 03, 2011

Although the b&b was housed in a large home all the rooms were located in the attic area, with sloping ceilings. The room in general and the bed in particular was comfortable, clean, and furnished nicely. Unfortunately the room was cooled via a small window mounted air conditioner which had to run 24 hours a day (and night) to keep the room comfortable. And, although we don't spend a lot of time in our room, the tv was tiny (13 inch), and thus hard to see when lying in bed. However the cost was reasonable compared to others in Cape May, and we enjoyed our stay. And our hosts were very nice and personable.

Great location, clean, comfortable room, lots of extra amenities, Jan and Mark are super hospitable hosts, and - the breakfasts are to die for! If only I could get Jan to share her frittata recipe!

Amazing stay and getaway.

The owners of the Bed and Breakfast were extremely friendly and courteous. I am glad I have decided to stay at The Luther Ogden. It was the best 1st experience I had in Cape May and in staying at a bed and breakfast. The room was clean all items I needed for the days I was there were there and ready for use. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. No regrest what so ever.

Weekend in Cape May

My mother, sister and I spent 2 nights at Luther Ogden Inn, chosen for its expansive front porch. We were welcomed warmly by our hosts Jan and Mark who went above and beyond with help and information about the area and things to do. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts on the front porch with the other guests. Luther Ogden Inn is a lovely place to spend time in Cape May.

Hosts Jan and Mark provided us with a most pleasant experience at Luther Ogden. The B&B is lovely and the location is central but quiet. We were served an excellent breakfast and were given directions to find all the wonderful sights in Cape May. We'd go there again in a heartbeat...all the way from Portland, Oregon and British Columbia Canada!

Pleasant stay on the outskirts

if you are looking for a place in Cape May away from the madness of families and tourists who may be staying in the center of town, then the Luther is for you. It is quaint and the innkeepers are welcoming and considerate. it's about one block to the beach near a great restaurant called Union Place.

"Cozy and Romantic Cape May"

The Innkeepers welcomed us at the door. They were friendly and helpful and made our stay comfortable and cozy. They serve a wonderful breakfast too! I particularly liked that the Luther Ogden Inn is set back a few streets from the bars and restaurants. It's a quiet and comfortable accommodation with a quick and easy walk to the "nightlife".

Jan and Mark ROCK!!!!

What a great Inn and great folks that run it!! Perfect location, awesome rooms and the food is fantastic. We could not ask for more. We really did not want to write a great review, because we don't want to lose "OUR" annual spot to a newcomer;-)

Great first experience of a bed and breakfast

4.2 on December 21, 2010

My boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Cape May and our first stay at a bed and breakfast. Prior to our arrival, my boyfriend and I became engaged. We were greeted by Jan, who was extremely friendly and nice. Our room had a fireplace and was comfortable and warm. Jan recommended The Merion for dinner and we had a fabulous time. Upon our return we spent some time in the lovely living room that was decorated for Christmas. The hospitality room had a refrigerator for our left overs and water, which we greatly appreciated. The breakfast the next morning was delightful. The inn is located close enough to everything that we could have walked but, because it was cold we chose to drive. Overall, it was a great experience and a perfect place to get engaged.

Excellent B&B

The owners, Jan & Mark Pask were welcoming and available for any questions we had about the area. The room was exceptionally clean & seemed to be recently remodeled. Our favorite was the wide veranda where we ate breakfast and relaxed at the end of the day. Each breakfast was tasty, filling & different.

Very clean, comfortable and cozy. Jan prepares a delicious home-cooked breakfast each morning! Owners Jan and Mark are very friendly and accomodating. Quiet street just one block to the beach. This time of year is quiet in Cape May and a pleasure to relax on the beach and stroll around the town. Open the windows in your third story room and get amazing fesh sea breezes. We highly recommend this B&B. A great value and they will even book single nights.

Join them for breakfast!

Stayed here for an end of summer "beach fix". Lovely little town with much to do inexpensively. Some wonderful restaurants such as Merion Inn, and Copperfish. The owners were very attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Jan is a fantastic cook and served delightful dishes every morning which we could anticipate from the yummy smell wafting throughout the house. I especially liked her baked french toast. She would season with fresh herbs & tomatoes from their garden. Even though they did not have an afternoon wine & cheese or tea offering, they provided each guest with a bottle of wine (their choice of re or white). Plus they had wine available to purchase for the few restaurants that were BYOB. House was located conveniently to everything 1 block off ocean.

Wonderful Bed, Breakfast, and Beach Experience

I had a really hard time finding a B&B for one night stay and finally I found Luther Ogden last minute. And I lucked out! My room was comfortable, clean and very cute and they were so very nice and helpful!
