'The jewel of them all has got to be the Mainstay,' according to the Washington Post. Built by a pair of wealth gamblers in 1872, this elegant, exclusive clubhouse is now one of the premier B and B inns in the country. Guests enjoy 12 antique filled rooms and suites, three parlors, spacious gardens and rocker filled verandahs. Breakfast and afternoon tea daily. Beautiful beaches, historic attractions, biking, birding, golf, and tennis.

Very relaxing stay, as always. We have been staying at the inn for over 30 years and have always felt at home by the owners and staff.

The staff are excellent, housekeeping staff, Diane, Shane, Wayne, Savannah and Marga are the best. And those behind the scene staff that keep the Inn running so well. Thank you Pete and Esther for sharing your home with us.

Since our first visit in the early '80's the Mainstay has been my ideal getaway spot for me and my husband. Now that the family is grown, we plan on it being an annual event. Beauty and graciousness surround you and being just a block or two from so much in Cape May, walking is the way to go. See you next Fall!

My husband stayed for an extended weekend this month. This was our first B&B stay. The room was very clean with a Victorian feel and all the amenities you would need for a stay away from home. The breakfast provided was outstanding and the Innkeeper, Diane, was a very warm, friendly and knowledgeable person. I would recommend this B&B for anyone visiting Cape May.

We have been to the Mainstay 5 times this past year, that should tell you something. Every time we have had fantastic time rest, relaxation and delicious food in an unbelievable environment. Diane Clark the Innkeeper is absolutely great, the Inn is spotless and very warm to relaxation.

The best B&B in Cape May. Friendly, hospitable, and beautiful. Our go to place. Very convenient to the beach and center of town.

The Mainstay is conveniently located near restaurants and the beach, and it's on the horse and carriage route, so you can hear the clip-clop of the horses hooves as they pass by in the early evening. The rooms are commodious (ours had a private porch). There is something for everyone at breakfast, and there are plenty of tables.

The Mainstay Inn did not disappoint again this year! We booked extra rooms for friends to share the experience and they loved it! They had never been to a B&B before. I kinda feel bad tho because we started them out with the bar very high! We highly recommend the Mainstay for any Cape May escape. You will not regret it.

This was our second time at the mainstay inn. Location is great, the property is spacious and welcoming, and the bottomless cookies are awesome! Breakfast is ok (fruit flies were annoying), French toast was served 2x in 4 days. Fourth day it just seemed like it was cut up and cooked, not great. The afternoon snacks could be better presented (and again the fruit flies) i.e. Cheese being cut prior with some better varieties. I enjoyed the butter cake in the morning and the fudge in the afternoon. Just some minor tuning up and this can easily be a "5"
