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.

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.

Economical B&B

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.

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

Great every time!

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.
