We recently stayed at the Mooring for the second time. Vince and Leslie are terrific hosts. The food is awesome ! Always great selections for breakfast. The location is excellent,one block to the beach and only a few blocks away from the Washington Street Mall. Once you park your car you won't need it again till you leave ! We will definately be back.

My wife and I have visited several B&Bs and hotels in Cape May over the last 30 years and frankly all have been very nice. However, after our recent stay at The Mooring, we decided that it will never be necessary to stay anywhere else. The Mooring has all the amenities and atmosphere that you desire in a B&B. Let me list just a few things that help to elevate this B&B to the top of the list in Cape May: Great location close to everything with on-site parking, tastefully decorated and comfortable furnishings, pristine cleanliness, delicious breakfasts and very professional and friendly hosts. Vince and Leslie are the best! Can't wait to go back in the spring.

I have stayed at the Mooring Bed & Breakfast for many years and have never been disappointed. Leslie and Vince are the best of the best and I have come to consider them part of my family. Love their cats Moose, Domino & Clipper.We always have a great time reminiscing. Breakfast is to die for (Sausage balls are killer). It's one of the things I wait all year for. Room#1 has become my favorite but this year at one point me & my sister were the only ones there and we got a tour of all the rooms. They are all beautiful. Looking forward to my stay again next year. The count down is on.

The Mooring B & B in Cape May, NJ is one of the most delightful places I have stayed on the NJ Shore. The Inn is amazingly outfitted, reflecting its era of construction, and the rooms immaculately kept. If that was not enough, the breakfasts served are among some of the best meals I have ever eaten. Vince and Leslie are the perfect hosts who make a stay at the Mooring a comfortable, restful and above all memorable experience. I will definitely stay at the Mooring again!

The Mooring was the perfect place for my recent get together with a college friend. Conveniently located to town and the beach, we had wonderful accommodations and fabulous breakfasts. Highly recommended.

I have been staying at the Mooring for many years. The last four have been with my sister. It's like being home but only better. I have stayed in a lot of the rooms but the last four years have been in Room 1. The room is gorgeous and extremely clean. I adore Vince and Leslie. They go out of their way to accommodate your every request. The breakfast is to die for. I can't even say which is my favorite. I love them all. Room is already booked for September 2018. The count down is on and I can't wait to get back to my home away from home!

Stayed here during weekdays - gals week for end of summer, in Room 18 - hosts were were great and the b&b itself is really lovely - clean, breakfast was delicious, location wonderful - near everything downtown, ocean/mall area. Loved it, would stay here again if coming to Cape May again!

We stayed at The Mooring and it was clean, comfortable, convenient and welcoming.
5 on September 19, 2017
This is our second stay st the Mooring. We love it. Vince and Leslie are the consummate hosts. Vince a native of Cape May is completely knowledgeable. The inn is beautiful, breakfast delicious and imaginative.
5 on September 14, 2017
The Mooring B&B in Cape May NJ is a wonderful place to stay. Vince and Leslie are excellent, caring, thoughtful hosts who prepare exquisite, delicious breakfasts. The rooms are very comfortable and immaculate. The vintage 1880s house is picturesque and takes you back to an era. We have gone there for a few years now, and will continue to stay at The Mooring, often for a couple of stays during the Summer/early Fall.

My mother always wanted to experience a stay at a Cape May Victorian B&B so we took her for an extended weekend to the Mooring for her 80th Birthday and she was trilled.
5 on September 04, 2017
Awesome breakfast ! Highly knowledgeable owners with info for activities and restaurants.
5 on August 31, 2017
We stayed at The Mooring for a long weekend. We were accommodated from the very start with changing our arrival to a late check in. The first thing that we said when we walked into our room (room 6) was "Oh! It smells so clean!". We have stayed in multiple bed and breakfasts in Cape May and that was the first one that we said that about. There is just something about smelling clean along with being clean. We met an elderly gentleman on the porch with while drinking our coffee who asked us if we had every had Vince's breakfast before. When we said no, his response was "You're in for a treat!" and he was right! The breakfast was excellent every morning. The sweet and savory option was great because we split everything! The coffee was even excellent! Vince came around and made sure that everything was great and asked us our plans for the day and if we needed any suggestions. The location was very convenient. The beach is a half a block away with bike rentals right across the street. And the off street parking (available with most rooms) was one of the deciding factors for us. If you have ever been to Cape May during the summer, you will understand why! Sorry for rambling on but I feel that informative reviews will give many people advice to book at The Mooring. We will definitely be staying there again!
5 on August 30, 2017
Had a really great stay at the Mooring. Leslie and Vince were wonderful hosts. This was our third year.
5 on August 26, 2017
Due to our usual B&B in Cape may being sold, we searched out a new one. The Mooring was our choice - and was the best in every way. For a combination of price, value, location...you will not find a better deal in Cape May. Vince & Leslie are gracious and helpful hosts. Their B&B is stunning and immaculate. We did not want for anything. Vince was always available should we have a question or need anything...and his restaurant suggestions were spot-on. Bravo! We will be back!
5 on August 25, 2017
Everything about "The Moorings" is always enjoyable, including the innkeepers, the other lodgers and the location.
5 on August 14, 2017
The Mooring was a fabulous last minute find for us:) What gem! We are Cape May regulars that mostly steer away from B&B's and stick to guest suite/houses. HOWEVER we will Definitely be returning to the Mooring! Leslie and Vince are welcoming and kind and professional and our room was super comfortable and spotlessly clean and the whole house was very open and comfortable to come and go from! The front porch, while being just one block from the buzz of activity, was quiet and cool and breezy. The breakfast was delicious and we liked being at a private table for 2! Just wonderful all the way around!
5 on August 09, 2017
Recently stayed at the Mooring for 3 nights. Had a wonderful time in CM and Mooring was a great spot to stay. Vince greeted us by name upon arrival and spent time with us reviewing the layout of the home. Very informative. Facility was very nice, clean and our fit all our needs. Breakfast each morning was fantastic with several options to choose from each morning. Highly recommend this B&B. 1/2 block from the beach with private parking for guests. Outside showers/foot wash was nice to rinse off before entering property. We loved it!
5 on August 09, 2017
From the moment we arrived, until the moment we left, Terry was there for everyone. As with any town, parking is a premium, but he made sure those of us who didn't have on site parking, had a spot on the street right in front.. The room was comfortable, the breakfast amazing!
5 on August 09, 2017
The Mooring is wonderful - Great clean rooms with a gourmet breakfast. Cost is reasonable and Vince and Leslie go out of their way to make your stay great.
5 on August 04, 2017
The innkeepers, Leslie and Vince are friendly, accommodating, and they know how to take care of their guests. The breakfasts are delicious! Leslie is always coming up with something new. The rooms are beautiful and the location ideal. It's one block from the beach and a short walk to just about everything else. My favorite place to stay in Cape May!
5 on July 20, 2017
Location is great, parking sites for rooms, owners are friendly. The house is well maintained and breakfast was very good. We really enjoyed our stay.
4.8 on July 19, 2017
The Mooring never fails to disappoint. This was my fourth time staying at The Mooring and I can't imagine choosing to stay at any other B&B in Cape May!
5 on July 17, 2017
Went back to our favorite Cape May B&B, The Mooring, for some relaxing beach time during July 4th long weekend. We always enjoy it here. Vince & Leslie are wonderful hosts and make you feel very welcome. The rooms are beautiful and are well maintained. The house is decorated in vintage Victorian style with many lovely antiques. The breakfast choices are great, as they always offer a "savory" choice which is a special egg dish or the "sweet" choice which is usually one of their yummy flavors of French toast. They also have some sort of muffins or pastry and fresh fruit every day as well as their homemade Greek yogurt which is served with fresh fruit, granola & drizzled with honey. There is onsite free parking, they supply beach towels and it's only a two block walk to the beach. I love sitting on the rocking chair front porch too. We always feel so refreshed after spending a few days at The Mooring!
5 on July 15, 2017
Cape May is relaxing to begin with but you can't beat the location to the beach from The Mooring. It was our 2nd visit there during the summer because Vince & Leslie go out of their way to make you feel comfortable in well-maintained rooms, present a great varied delicious breakfast, yet give you space to enjoy your stay. Their concern is for you to enjoy your time off! Walking easily anywhere is another plus! We highly recommend staying at the Mooring. K & J Mustard
4.8 on July 08, 2017
Another July has come and is going after spending time with Leslie and Vince at the Mooring. Great time relaxing and chatting. Always wonderful to see them again.
5 on July 07, 2017
We come to Cape May every year for our anniversary and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Vince and Leslie's attention to detail and warm hospitality are simply incredible.
5 on July 02, 2017
Fabulous stay ! Vince got my wife cookies and shared recipes. Everything was perfect. The room was neat and clean. Great breakfasts and hospitality ! Cannot wait to return !
5 on June 29, 2017
Leslie and Vince are extraordinary in their thoughtfulness, attention to detail, and aesthetic sense. This B&B is beautifully furnished and maintained and is a joy to visit. We return as often as we are able.
5 on June 29, 2017
Our stay at The Mooring exceeded all expectations from start to finish. The house is exquisitely decorated and located only a block from the gorgeous white sandy beach. Vince and Leslie's service is unmatched - helpful, friendly, knowledgeable. Breakfast was exceptional. We appreciated the option of a table for two rather than large communal table. And the made-to-order gourmet delicacies, prepared by Leslie and served with a smile by Vince, were as delicious as they were beautiful. We'll definitely be back. Thank you, Leslie and Vince!
5 on June 27, 2017
Our 2nd stay at the Mooring and we really enjoyed it. Vince and Leslie are wonderful hosts and the breakfasts are absolutely delicious. You must try the yogurt with honey and homemade granola! The location is great with easy access to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Anything you need to know, ask Vince. The rooms are lovely and we like having our own bathroom. Try this beautiful B&B...you won't regret it!
5 on June 22, 2017
We have been enjoying the Mooring B&B for the last six years and are looking forward to our seventh stay next year. Vince and Leslie are the best hosts we have ever had. The rooms, and the B&B in general, are immaculate. The breakfasts are gourmet and delicious. See you next year!
4.8 on June 18, 2017
we stayed here for our honeymoon 16 years ago and have returned several times to celebrate our anniversary. This year when we arrived we received an upgrade and stayed in a suite. Very comfortable. Once again the breakfasts were yummy. Leslie and Vince are wonderful hosts.
4.4 on June 15, 2017
Our stay was wonderful. Breakfast was so good and Vince is always helpful for every question you may have.
4.8 on May 31, 2017
We visit Cape May at least one time/year and have stayed at many different B&B's that promised a lot, but failed to deliver. We were pleasantly surprised and truly enjoyed our stay at The Mooring. Leslie and Vince made us feel at home and were there if we needed them, but gave us space to spend time together. Our room was very lovely and breakfast was outstanding each morning. This ranks very high on our list and we will definitely return soon!!!
5 on May 25, 2017
The rooms at the Mooring are the largest and most comfortable of any b&b that we have stayed in. Also, Vince gave us wonderful restaurant and bar recommendations. I knew he could be trusted because the breakfast and pastries at the Mooring are fabulous! We can't wait to come back.
5 on May 19, 2017
tThe Mooring was a very clean and charming B&B the breakfast was the best, Vince was outstanding, we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks Katie & Al and Karen & Ken
4.6 on May 17, 2017
If you desire a truly wonderful bed and breakfast experience - this is the place! Vince and Leslie are charming and generous hosts: knowledgeable about events, menus and interesting things to do during your stay. The breakfast menu is outstanding with a plentiful selection of items. The rooms comfortable and clean. Tea time on the porch is a great place to unwind and enjoy the breeze. We return again and again because it truly feels like our home away from home.
5 on April 07, 2017
This was our second time staying with Vince and Leslie at the Mooring. We have enjoyed ourselves immensely both times. The rooms and spotless and have always been kept up to date. Their food is awesome and they treat you like family. We always recommend the Mooring when we hear of people who are looking to visit CM. Just wish they allowed children as our last stay was an early "babymoon", sadly we won't be visiting till our little is a bit older. That just makes the anticipation of return that much greater! Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication guys!
5 on October 05, 2016
This was my second stay at a B&B in Cape May and as much as I enjoyed my first stay this visit to the Mooring B&B was absolutely the best! The owners Vince & Leslie were very helpful and gracious. Their breakfast every morning was stupendous! Typically in a B&B there is a buffet served in the dining room but since it was off season and there were only 4 rooms occupied we were pleasantly surprised with personal service and ordering. We were given a choice of "savory or sweet" as a main dish for breakfast and either choice would have been scrumptious. The presentation alone for the breakfast was a delight given I'm a huge Victorian era fan, so the lovely place settings and presentation were incredible. I would highly recommend this B&B for anyone looking to experience a true Victorian Cape May B&B!
5 on October 05, 2016
We've been staying at the Mooring for several years, and would not stay anywhere else in Cape May. Vince and Leslie make you feel like you are coming home. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the breakfasts and tea times are delicious. The entire house is spotless and fresh at all times. We can't wait to return!
4.8 on September 18, 2016
We enjoyed our stay at the Mooring. Vince and Leslie are the perfect hosts.
5 on September 18, 2016
We had never stayed here in Cape May. The place was gorgeous. The room was beautiful AND it had a king-sized bed. The breakfasts were delicious and there was an afternoon "sweet" as well. Leslie and Vince were great hosts and knew a lot about the town and the best places to eat. All in all, it was a great little getaway!
4.4 on September 13, 2016
The room was so lovely, and the porch was great. We enjoyed sipping wine out on the porch late into the evening. The breakfasts were wonderful with plenty of variety. Will plan on coming again.
5 on September 12, 2016
Vince and Leslie are terrific hosts. Our trip was last minute and we were fortunate to have found a room on such short notice. The breakfasts were excellent, we ate more than we should have. The room was clean and well appointed. Vince was a good resource for places to eat and things to do. All in all a very nice place run by nice folks. We'll likely be back again. Robert & Shirlyn
4.6 on September 09, 2016
Will definitely return.
4.6 on August 31, 2016
This was our fourth stay at The Mooring. It's loaded with Victorian charm, which fits in nicely with the character of the town. Vince and Leslie are excellent innkeepers and their breakfasts are thoughtfully prepared. Each room has its own unique character. Many rooms come with parking spaces included, which is a plus in a very busy shore town.
5 on August 25, 2016
My husband and I stayed two nights here for our fifteen year wedding anniversary. Leslie and Vince are wonderful hosts. We truly appreciated Vince's recommendations on where to dine. Everything was wonderful, and I hope we can return!
4.0 on August 22, 2016
Our second stay at the Mooring was very enjoyable. We will certainly return!
5 on August 22, 2016
The hospitality and service is great, never disappointed in all the years we have been staying here.
4.6 on August 17, 2016
So you get to Cape May and there's a hotel/B&B on every corner, BUT this is the bee's knees! Vince goes out of his way to make sure your stay is beyond excellent. You show up/ check in and the guy is on point with his tutorial, no funny business. Lets talk about the room, it's clean, A/C, Bathroom and parking spot. There is multiple fridges in the B&B for your "stuff." There is an outdoor shower available for you as well. NOW the BEST FOR LAST, BREAKFAST! AMAZING!!! Stay here if you want the best experience. Last but least, Vince well tell you anything and everything about the town, where to eat and how much you want to spend. Ask him questions, great job guys!
4.8 on August 15, 2016
Food and service was excellent!! Very clean and close to everything. The beach, mall and restaurants. Excellent place to stay in Cape May.
5 on August 13, 2016
From start to finish.........a great place to stay.
5 on August 13, 2016
My wife and I had a great stay here in July. Leslie and Vince were very kind and accommodating, breakfast was amazing, the room was spacious and comfortable and the home is centrally located just a block from the beach and convenient to all of the shops and restaurants on the Washington Street mall. We highly recommend staying here and look forward to returning ourselves!
4.6 on August 13, 2016
Another long weekend to celebrate the 4th of July, has passed. It is very comforting to know that after visiting Cape May for the last twenty-one years that we found this treasure. This will mark the eighth time we have booked into the Mooring and continue to enjoy a pleasurable experience. Bothe Leslie and Vince are so accommodating and solicitous, it's almost like staying with family, without any arguments. Recommend this B&B to anyone considering a stay in Cape May, on every level.
5 on August 08, 2016
As always we had another amazing weekend at The Mooring! It's something we look forward to all year between the amazing breakfasts and comfortable rooms. Thanks again for everything! Lauren and Doug Domsky
5 on August 04, 2016
We have been to The Mooring at least 4 times. It is by far my favorite bed and breakfast. The food is always excellent. When I encountered a medical emergency during this last stay Vince was super helpful. This will always be my favorite place!
4.2 on July 29, 2016
The Mooring B&B is a gem in a wonderful location. Vince and Leslie are great hosts, the food is tasty with a lot of choices. We will definitely return.
5 on July 26, 2016
I cannot say enough good things about The Mooring. It was clean and decorated beautifully. as one would expect in Cape May. The breakfasts are by far the best in Cape May, hands down!!! We were greeted by Vince when we checked in, and instantly felt at home. He was very warm and accommodating and had us laughing every time we saw him. Leslie is a love who knows how to make a scrumptious breakfast. Her signature Coconut French toast was "to die for", along with her savory egg creations and breakfast meats. Also on the daily menu, was the most delicious Greek yogurt I've ever had, drizzled with honey and fresh berries and Leslie's homemade granola. The continental breakfast consisted of fresh fruit, juices, home-baked muffins, breads, scones, coffee, tea, etc. We were full until tea at 4, which always had a surprise home-baked treat. We had ours on the front rocking chair porch, where we enjoyed the sea breezes and the sound of the waves, as The Mooring is only 1/2 block to the ocean in the historic district. After vacationing in Cape May for 22 years, we have found our new "home away from home". It was the most relaxing vacation I've ever had here. We can't wait to stay here again. Thank you, Leslie and Vince for being such fantastic hosts, cooks and just great people. Patricia and Harry Rothar
5 on July 25, 2016
This is our first time in Cape May and we will be back. The Mooring is a beautiful building that is decorated with true antiques that harken to the Victorian Era. Every request is met with the sense that you are part of a family. The breakfasts are gourmet , service is impeccable and the site is extremely clean. If you want to take a walk or bike ride, or want a suggestion for dinner, just ask and you are given personal recommendations with suggestions that will not disappoint. The Mooring is close to shops, beaches and attractions. Bravo

Quaint, charming, clean, friendly, accommodating, best breakfast in town, only 1 block to the beach. Everything you need is withing walking distance. What else can you ask for. We've been coming for years with no reason to look elsewhere.

Leslie and Vince are amazing!! Extremely clean!! Great location!!
3.8 on July 17, 2016
My stay at Mooring B&B in Cape May, NJ exceeded my expectations. I had forgotten much about Cape May and fell "in love" with this wonderful shore town. The B&B is a big part in a wonderful 3 days in Cape May. The owners, Leslie and Vince were fantastic hosts and I 100% recommend a stay at Mooring.
5 on June 30, 2016
This is the second summer we have gifted a three day getaway to the Mooring B & B for my parents. They love the Cape May, and this is a wonderful bed and breakfast. The owners are friendly and attentive to guests, the rooms are beautiful and it is in a perfect location to walk around Cape May.
5 on June 28, 2016
This was a second visit for my friend and I. Still happy with our choice. Can't beat Vince and Leslie at being good hosts. Informative, helpful and just nice people. And then there are Leslie's breakfasts--sweet or savory, plus always fruit, muffins, scones, bread and that delicious yogurt with honey, fruit and granola. Afternoon tea provided a wide variety of hot tea or an iced tea or iced water and a surprise sweet, again prepared by Leslie. Look forward to coming back again.
4.6 on June 24, 2016
We stayed in Room 10 which has a porch and a bit of view of beach. It was clean and beautifully decorated. Vince is beyond friendly and helpful and always available. Leslie is the cook and makes delicious treats while we were there. The Inn is walking distance to town and beach. Great place to stay.
4.6 on June 21, 2016
We spent our honeymoon here so we like to relive that time by returning most years. We love the breakfast selections, especially the yogurt and afternoon tea is refreshing. We will be back again next year!
4.8 on June 13, 2016
The Moorings was everything you could ask for in an Inn. The room was beautifully furnished and clean. Old world charm with modern comforts. We were in Room 10 which had a porch with rocking chairs. Vince and Leslie the Innkeepers were so friendly and helpful. It is in walking distance to the beach and to town. You will not be sorry if you stay here.
4.6 on June 09, 2016
We stayed in the Suite. It was decorated in victorian charm and was very comfortable. The AC was a bit noisy, but it kept the room cool. Breakfast in the main dining room at the house was wonderful. Vince was attentive enough without overdoing it and was a wealth of information concerning activities and attractions nearby. Leslie prepared very tasty breakfasts that were out of the ordinary. The location was ideal and on-site parking made travel easy.
3.8 on June 02, 2016
This was our first time at a B&B and it was a great experience. Vince and Leslie are just the right mix of being friendly without being in your business. The B&B was beautifully decorated and had an old world charm about it. The location was ideal being only a block from the beach. The breakfast was out of this world with a nice variety of choices. We would go back there in a heartbeat.
5 on May 27, 2016
Beautiful historic B and B with period furnishings and modern amenities. Breakfast is always a blend of gourmet sweet and savory choices.
4.8 on May 25, 2016
Mooring is arguably the best B&B in Cape May depending on what you're looking for in a B&B. It's the perfect couple's B&B because men (like myself) and women alike will truly enjoy their stay. If you're seeking the classic B&B experience, great understanding and accommodating owners, with a touch more privacy, comfortable bed, and a breakfast that will give you enough energy to keep going until dinnertime, the Mooring is your destination! Rooms are nice, quiet, private. Bathrooms are a good size though some of the showers are smaller in the smaller rooms. Owners Vince and Leslie are a team par excellence and make you feel like lifelong friends while maintaining an exceedingly high level of service. Location is one block from the beach- there are no b&b's closer than that. Breakfast is absolutely delicious, starting with a fruit buffet with baked goods (muffins, scones, zucchini bread, etc. - different each day), followed by optional individually prepared Greek yogurt topped with fresh berries and wildflower honey, then you are offered a selection of either a sweet dish or savory dish, which typically consists of various creative and delicious versions of French toast (coconut encrusted, pecan, etc.), and for the savory various styles of eggs including migas, "green and white" (scallions and cream cheese) or standard scrambled eggs if you wish. There is also a selection of juices, great coffee, and premium tea to choose from. We've stayed here twice, and the second experience was even better than the first- they do this so well! Leslie was very accommodating with diet concerns, and they even lent us a very nice umbrella when it was raining. Vince also has top restaurant suggestions and also great "strategy" on experiencing great food at some of the expensive places while not breaking the bank. I highly recommend the Mooring to anyone who enjoys great food and wants a restful night's sleep. Best value, Best Cape May B&B in my opinion.
5 on May 19, 2016
We always have a great time in Cape May and after discovering this great BnB we will only stay here when visiting. The owners are the inn keepers and go out of their way to make sure all your needs are take care of. They are also very knowledgeable about the town and what to see and do. DO NOT miss the breakfast as it is absolutely wonderful, something new and delicious each day.
5 on May 19, 2016
always a perfect stay; wonderful property, location & hosts
5 on February 12, 2016
What makes this B $ B special are the In keepers, Leslie and Vince. They compliment each other and the inn with their culinary skills, knowledge of Cape May, and hospitality. Stay at The Mooring...you won't be disappointed! Nancy and Donald Scatton.
5 on October 07, 2015
We have been coming here for years, this time we were able to come twice. Leslie and Vince are more than hospitable. Stayed in room 2 for the first time and found it elegant yet comfortable and homey. Can't wait to return. Love this Inn and the people that run it.
5 on September 30, 2015
As always our stay was wonderful. Leslie & Vince are always accommodating & gracious. Can't wait for next year.
5 on September 23, 2015
OK, I don't like doing reviews for places where I have stayed that were really wonderful. (Yeah, I fear that a lot of others will want to go to them and I won't be able to find a room when I want to go.) So, saying this is one great B&B in Cape May! When you walk in you really get a sense of the Victorian in the entry and salons. The rooms are also outfitted nicely in that style. Now, there may be other B&Bs that are more "faithful" to the Victorian style as far as all their appointments are concerned. But, I'm not one to hang on the historical accuracy of the place where I lay my head. Hey, I'll take a modern style bathroom and shower with some Victorian accents over an old ball and claw tub with shower curtain that wraps around you when you get wet any day. (And, don't get me to talking about the B&B I stayed in where I'ld swear the bed had the original Victorian mattresses and box spring, nasty!) No, give me a place where the style enhances my enjoyment, but doesn't take away the livability and my comfort. And, that place is the Mooring. Well, this was our third or fourth stay at the Mooring and, as usual, our hosts, Vince and Leslie, were wonderful, helpful, gracious and fun to be with. Breakfasts were delicious and held us through lunch. What can I say, my wife and I love this B&B, we keep going back (by the way, did I say it's just one short block from the beach!), but I'm not going to tell which of the great rooms we stayed in and really, really liked. (Yeah, I want that room the next time we go "down the shore.") Suffice to say, we had a great week's vacation, and the Mooring was large part of it!
5 on September 22, 2015
Our stay at the Mooring was great as always. Vince & Leslie couldn't be more accommodating. I've been staying here for years and it's just like visiting family. Can't wait for next year..
4.6 on September 19, 2015
My roommate from nursing school and I have been coming here for years. This year I wanted to show my husband what I have been enjoying. We loved the proximity to the beach and almost everything else in Cape May. (We used the car once to go to the whale watch; walked everywhere else.) Vince and Leslie were lovely, as usual, and made the stay very memorable. A definite must if coming to Cape May.
5 on September 14, 2015
We recently hosted friends from England at the Mooring. They were treated as family by Vince and they thoroughly enjoyed Leslie's breakfast and treats at tea. They now know why the Mooring is our favorite B&B.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Mooring. It was charming, clean and convenient. The breakfast was delicious every day. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We would totally stay there again.

Started our summer...end of June.... And ended our summer....beginning of September at The Mooring. Leslie and Vince are the perfect innkeepers! Professional and friendly. The Mooring stands proud and beautiful with Leslie and Vince's loving care. Nancy and Donald Scatton Northampton, PA

As someone who has never been to a bed and breakfast before, I can say without a doubt The Mooring has set the bar high. Had a wonderful stay and a great experience. Will definitely return.

we have been staying here for several years. Leslie and Vince are a great team and make you feel genuinely welcome.

Loved our stay at the Mooring B&B- Vince was a great host- wonderful breakfast each morning - super nice room!

The mooring!! Outstanding place, service great, friendly relaxed environment! A must pkace to stay if you are in the area. Close to the beach and all points of interest.
5 on August 15, 2015
We've stayed at the Mooring for seven straight summers, and next year will be our eighth. Vince and Leslie are terrific hosts, who make us feel like we are visiting family (actually, it's better than that: we don't have to help with the dishes or make our beds). Breakfasts are a treat. Each morning there is a choice of savory or sweet concoction from Leslie's kitchen, along with a continental buffet, or just plain scrambled eggs. The Mooring is always exceptionally clean (how do they get rid of all the sand?) and well kept. Vince knows our taste in restaurants and is always available for recommendations. The Mooring is one block from the beach, and about five from downtown Cape May. You don't ever need your car. And, you can spend the last day on the beach and still be able to shower in their outdoor shower before you head home. All in all, we'll keep going back as long as they will have us.

We stayed in room 12. It was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was spacious. Vince is incredibly personable and makes you feel like old friends immediately! The homemade breakfast was fabulous! Friends had recommended some local spots for breakfast but we couldn't tear ourselves away from Vince and Leslie's cooking! Everything is just so fresh!!! All around, a wonderful stay! ~ Orlando & Ida

Leslie and Vince are the perfect team, and the Mooring B&B is a testament of hard work, imagination and genuine caring. We come here every year and have made it a family tradition.
4.8 on June 08, 2015
We returned to our honeymoon B & B and we're not disappointed. Room was beautiful and once again the breakfasts were scrumptious. We will be back!

Proprietor was very friendly and business like. Gave great advice on choices for dining and what to do around town. Breakfast was very good. We had a very relaxing stay and would stay here again.

Celebrated a birthday here. It was a wonderful time. Room was lovely and the service and accommodations were just perfect. We will certainly be returning. The breakfast every morning was gourmet style and the afternoon tea foods too! Great place.

Title is outstanding because the review meter would not register that sentiment, shared by my bride (of 51 years) and myself. Delighted in every regard with the care that has been taken to provide a quality mooring for those visiting Cape May. Each room is a designer's triumph. Leslie and Vince are accommodating, engaging, and helpful hosts. Breakfast was wonderful each morning. Loved it!
4.6 on May 30, 2015
Have been to The Mooring for the fourth time . Vince and Leslie are very friendly and welcoming . They are very helpful with suggestions on where to eat , sightsee, and how to navigate the area. Breakfast has always been wonderful ! We also love the afternoon tea as a way to relax after the beach . Highly recommend !
4.8 on May 28, 2015
We had a great time staying at The Mooring B&B. Vince makes it great at he is good with the customer service and assisting his guests with whatever they need. Lot's of little well thought out details included in the room.
5 on April 30, 2015
The Mooring is a great place to stay in Cape May. It is 2 blocks from beach and a short walk to Washington Square Mall. The rooms are lovely, the food is always delicious. Vince and Leslie are excellent hosts! We have been there 3 times and keep coming back.
5 on October 26, 2014
This is the best place place in Cape May. Vinnie and Leslie where fantastic hosts.Place is spotless, food was great. Close to the beach and always felt welcome. We can't wait to go back.
4.8 on October 15, 2014
Vince and Leslie are excellent hosts. They make you really feel at home. The rooms were very clean and ours was very roomy. The B&B is one block off the beach and close to everything. Vince is a plethora of knowledge on Cape May and the South Jersey shore. Every recommendation was spot on. We came to relax and the Mooring B&B hit the spot. I highly recommend this B&B George Charlottesville, VA

Anniversary getaway. Fabulous owners, very helpful. Had a great time!
3.8 on October 09, 2014
We spent a nice 4 day weekend with Vince at the Mooring. He was a very attentive host when he needed to be, and melted into the background when he needed to as well. He was very insightful and gladly answered all (and we had many) questions we peppered him with during our stay. His meals were appealing and his knowledge of the restaurants/service around him proved helpful as well. Perfect location; we walked everywhere & never touched our car once we parked it. Don't let lack of parking with some of his rooms deter you; it didn't matter at all when we were there in Sept (perhaps because it was off season somewhat). We will go back. This was our first visit, and I hope to have more.
5 on October 06, 2014
We enjoyed every minute of our stay at The Mooring. The room was spacious and comfortable in a homey way. The porch rockers were a wonderful and relaxing way to enjoy a cup of afternoon tea. It is close to everything, and Vince is always willing to help direct you to wherever you want to go. There are not enough words to describe the breakfasts! Thank you Leslie and Vince for a relaxing and fun vacation!!
5 on October 04, 2014
Lovely inn and lovely hosts! Vince and Leslie were the greatest of hosts! Very personal and accommodating! They added much enjoyment to our honeymoon stay! The inn was beautiful, as was our room! We couldn't have asked for more! Oh... and breakfast was amazing! Do not pass on the yogurt with homemade granola!! Thank you so much for your hospitality! Fondly, Brian and Traci Trueax :)
4.6 on October 03, 2014
Welcoming, warm and a lovely B&B to stay at. My husband has asked for a Bed and Breakfast cookbook as everything was so special and delicious. Non intrusive but supportive owners. We loved it.
5 on October 03, 2014
We had a fabulous time!!! Vince and Leslie are lovely people, that make everyone feel welcome. The breakfasts were BEYOND INCREDIBLE!!! There is ZERO skimping. The B&B is so close to the ocean you practically step off the deck and you are there. We had forgotten our beach chairs, and they lent us their personal loungers. We hope to make it back again next year. Thank you for making our quick trip so wonderful.
4.8 on October 01, 2014
Had a great time. Our room was perfect for what we needed. Bathroom looked completely new. Breakfast was really tasty.
4.4 on October 01, 2014
Lovely B&B. Breakfast incredible. Vince made us feel welcome. Wish we had a chance to say hi to co-manager, but she rarely appeared.
5 on September 29, 2014
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Mooring. The house was great, our room was beautiful and the breakfasts were out of this world! The only possible thing we could complain about would be the weather, but chatting with Vince about things to do and places to eat made up for it. Definitely one of best trips to Cape May!
4.2 on September 29, 2014
Really enjoyed out cape escape at The Mooring. Vince and Leslie were terrific hosts, who made as feel most welcome. Clean, comfortable - and great breakfasts to boot. The Mooring won't disappoint!
5 on September 29, 2014
Cordial hosts, beautiful rooms and excellent food make the Mooring the B&B of our choice in Cape May.
4.6 on September 29, 2014
My husband and I returned this September for our second year in a row at The Morring., and we are now planning our return visit for next year. Vince and Leslie are true hosts and not only provide a wonderful home where we truly have learned how to rest and relax, but also provide great advise on areas attractions. This year the weather was not as nice and our week in 2013, but we still had our days on the beach and visted the area wineries and attractions. The dining recommendations from Vince are always spot on. And, don't pass up Leslie's yogurt creation to start your morning; a wonderful part of the always delicious breakfast.
5 on September 23, 2014
I've been staying at The Mooring for quite a few years and I am never disappointed. The rooms are clean and spacious. The service is excellant and the breakfast is to die for. Not to mention the afternoon tea and the desserts which are also wonderful. Leslie and Vince are the best. My favorite thing is the big wooden rockers on the front porch. I could just sit there for hours enjoying the ocean breeze and people watching. Of course I am already planning my vacation there for next year.
4.8 on September 08, 2014
The Mooring was a wonderful find Vince was so pleasant and saw to it that we had everything we needed. Mark Stankiewicz
5 on August 25, 2014
Upon arrival we immediately coud tell this was going to be a different B&B experience. Vince Casale is a most congenial and welcoming host. His easy going style and thorough orientation of the facilities made us feel "right at home". The room we stayed in was beautifully appointed and obviously well cared for. Unlike many Cape May B&Bs, our room had plenty of storage for our 5 days worth of clothing. Two full closets! The maid service was thorough and discreet. The breakfasts and afternoon treats, prepared by Leslie Valenza, were absolutely outstanding! Each morning brought a new variation on the basic savory egg prep and the sweet French toast theme. Again, Vince was an excellent morning host. I highly recommend The Mooring. We will be visiting again for sure!
4.6 on August 22, 2014
Recently we attended a wedding at Cape May. We chose to go to a B&B for the experience. The Mooring B&B was close to the venue. Great hospitality by Leslie and Vince! It was the first time at an Victorian B&B. Breakfast was good with multiple choices. The Victorian furniture added to the ambiance and we had the 4pm tea time with home baked pastries. It was great time and experience for the family.
5 on August 18, 2014
We have stayed at The Mooring every August for our anniversary for the past five years. Before finding The Mooring we stayed at a few other B&B's in Cape May. After staying at The Mooring we knew we found "our place". Vince and Leslie are wonderful hosts. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. The breakfast is incredible. You have a variety of dishes to choose from and seating is arranged so that their are two people per table which gives you privacy. Vince has gone out of his way to make our stay at the Mooring very enjoyable. We look forward to going back every year. We highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in Cape May! Lisa & Patrick Bradley Harrisburg,PA
5 on August 17, 2014
I adore The Mooring! Leslie and Vince are beyond wonderful. The bed and breakfast itself is beautiful but Leslie and Vince make it exceptional! Vince is the guy to go to for recomendations for restaurants and anything really. They make you feel like family. This was our second year with them and I would never stay at another place. Also, the breakfasts are to die for! Vince is a real foodie and it shows. I also appreciate the fact that thy use a lot of local products in their cooking. My best friend and I had a great time and we will be back next year!
4.8 on August 17, 2014
Excellent B&B. Vince is more than accommodating. He is so upbeat and even remembers you name. Breakfast is a treat, location is fantastic (one block from the beach), rooms are very nice, immaculately kept. You won't be disappointed.
5 on August 15, 2014
This was our second visit to the Mooring. The hosts are gracious, the breakfasts are yummy and the place is immaculate. In a great location, close to the beach. Wish we have stayed longer.
5 on August 13, 2014
What a wonderful place to stay! My husband & I stayed here last year. We enjoyed it so much we came back again for our vacation this year. It has a quiet yet friendly atmosphere. They have the most delicious breakfasts here! OMG the best!The innkeepers, Leslie & Vince, are very attentive and helpful. They guide you in the right direction for whatever you may need. They are super! Great location- a block to the beach and close to lots of shopping and restaurants!

Every time we stay at the Mooring we have a delightful time. The Breakfasts were fantastic and throughly enjoyed afternoon tea. Vince and Lesley are great innkeepers and very attentive to our needs. They truly create a "Cape May moment".
5 on August 01, 2014
My husband and I have been vacationing at the Mooring for about 5 years now. We usually go in July, but did go in July and October of 2012. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else; we wish the Inn were open year round! Leslie and Vince, the innkeepers, have become like family! They are so welcoming, accommodating and genuinely really nice people. The rooms are always clean and when the inn is closed, they are renovating and keepimg up with what needs to be done that can't be done when guests are staying there. I can't forget to mention their breakfasts. They always have cut-up fresh fruit and either homemade scones or muffins on the buffet along with coffee, tea and two juices. They give you a choice of an egg dish or a sweet dish, both of which change daily and are always delicious and satsfying! Our stays at their inn have been a welcome respite from the daily grind of everyday life. We never want to leave, but leave we must looking forward to when we can return. I would absolutely recommend staying at the Mooring when in Cape May.
5 on July 28, 2014
Great innkeepers! Very helpful but respected your privacy. Breakfast was awesome. Beautiful property that is clean and well maintained. Perfect location with off street parking.
4.8 on July 26, 2014
The Mooring B & B is in a terrific location as you can walk to everything and you are a stone throw away from the beach.Vince greeted us at the door and was kind and informative. He checked in with all the guests (as he saw them) periodically to make sure everything was OK. The breakfast was scrumptious! They have a wonderful yogurt dish with honey, granola and fruit. Every morning we had a choice of 3 items and a meat. It was plentiful. Our room was spacious. Our only issue was with the shower in our bathroom. It was a claw foot bathtub/shower which can be a bit difficult to get in and out of. The issue was regulating the water temperature. It got quite hot. Other than that, the room was wonderful. We will definitely come back again, but perhaps stay in a different room with a more modern shower.
4.6 on July 21, 2014
Best value and best B&B owners, what more can one ask
5 on July 20, 2014
We experienced a lovely two-night stay with family. The rooms were spacious and beautiful. Everything was sparking clean - tough to do in Victorians. One block back from the beach. Rooms were exceptionally reasonable in price due to construction next door during the day. Good chance for an affordable stay close to the beach. On-sight parking. Staff friendly and helpful.
5 on July 20, 2014
This was our second time at The Mooring and we really love staying there. Vince greeted us by our names when we arrived, asked if we needed help with our luggage and showed us to our room. Breakfasts are extra-special and not hurried. One night we got caught in a rain storm coming back from dinner with no umbrellas and our clothes were soaked. Next day we mentioned something to Vince and he took our clothes and dried them in the clothes dryer -- going above and beyond the call of duty. This is what Leslie and Vince do at The Mooring. Treat yourself to a wonderful getaway at this B&B, you will be glad you did.

Owner: most friendly. hospitable, knowledgeable of area. Service: very good. Meals VERY good. We enjoyed our stay !
4.6 on July 13, 2014
My wife and I stayed at The Mooring for 3 nights in early July. We stayed in room 8 which is a suite - nice bedroom, separate sitting room, and semi-private veranda. We loved that there was always a really nice breeze coming from the beach, and two large ceiling fans, so we never needed the air conditioner! Our only complaint is that the room was on the dark side - we needed to turn all the lights on during the day and even then it was still darkish. The B&B was very nicely furnished/decorated - I loved the artwork, the furniture, the accents. etc. And it was immaculate. I kept remarking how the wood floors gleamed! I enjoyed the layout of the dining room - nice to sit at a table for two. The breakfasts were delicious, with fresh fruit and pastries available each morning, along with Greek yogurt with honey and granola, and a choice of two entries - one sweet, and one savory. Coffee available all day long, breakfast served until 10 am, and iced tea and a snack served in the afternoon (cookies all 3 days we were there). Use of a shared refrigerator and microwave. Didn't use the microwave but stored beverages in the refrigerator. Vince is very friendly and exudes hospitality - from greeting us by name when we arrived, to always telling us to let him know if we needed anything, to sharing info on restaurants, etc. Overall, a wonderful stay.

After 10 years of going to cape May we've finally found our favorite B&b. Had a wonderful time. We will be back.
4.6 on July 10, 2014
This Bed & Breakfast is great. The Rooms are great. Food is great and the owners are very friendly - Highly Recommended.
5 on July 09, 2014
The Mooring is a well kept airy B&B, decorated very nicely. The rooms are spotless and comfortalbe. The breakfast is always delicious with options of a savory and a sweet, as well as an array of fruit and breads. Afternoon snack is a light sweet - perfect with beverage or coffee / tea. The front porch consistently has a lovely breeze and is a pleasure to sit on, especially with an early morning cup of coffee. Vince and Leslie make the visit a pleasure -- and the location is fabuloso!!!!!!
4.4 on July 08, 2014
The Mooring has a fantastic location only one block from a beach entrance and a few blocks from the pedestrian mall area of Cape May - we walked everywhere. The hosts are friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. Breakfasts are healthy and delicious - we recommend the yogurt with granola and fruit! Off-street parking is a major plus. Our room (No. 1) was large and bright with a very comfortable bed. Highly recommended!
3.8 on July 07, 2014
After we parked we were each greeted my name by the innkeeper Vince. Wow! Our room was large, well appointed with a large bathroom. Vince is a true professional and takes great pride in ensuring that guests' needs are served. We would recommend this property to anyone seeking a seaside escape to beautiful and charming Cape May.
4.4 on July 04, 2014
We're always drawn back to this gloriously run, charming B&B just one block from the sea. Leslie and Vince are an ideal team - they're perfectionists, and it shows. We've just made our fifth visit, and look forward to next time.
5 on July 03, 2014
Vince and Leslie go out of their way to make you feel at home. Leslie's breakfasts are incredible, and Vince is always available, willing to share advice, directions, tips (e.g., wait until 3:45 to go to the 1-block-away beach, so you don't have to buy a tag -- since we're both fair-skinned, that was perfect for us, anyway). A great building, great location, and great hosts. The large supply of restaurant menus is a great bonus.
5 on June 29, 2014
We took a mini vacation with my parents to Cape May and stayed at The Mooring. We stayed in Rooms 6 & 8. The rooms are immaculate, comfortable and decorated beautifully. Room 6 decorated in black & white is so chic and it was perfect for my daughter and I. If you would like an ocean view, Room 8 includes an ocean view and a porch with 2 rockers, perfect for relaxing and taking in the ocean breeze. I can't say enough about Vince and Leslie. They make you feel so welcome, they couldn't do enough for us! The breakfasts were heavenly. Definitely start off with the yogurt featuring fresh fruit, Cape May honey and Leslie's homemade granola. It's so delicious!! We were lucky enough to have Leslie's famous French toast which is incredible!! If you're looking for the perfect getaway look no further than The Mooring. It's just perfection! We were sad to leave but will definitely be back!
5 on June 25, 2014
My wife and I wanted to get away for 3 nights and we chose The Mooring as our B&B to stay at i Cape May. We stayed 2 nights and we had to leave because I pulled my back out at breakfast sitting in a chair...yes it happened! Our 2 nights in Room 10 were spectacular! The breakfast was delicious and the kep player that we saw was Vince. He is very intelligent and he knows the hospitality business very well! His upbeat and cool personality keeps guests feeling like they are with family while they stay there. He genuinely cares about his guests and it shows. When he knew I hurt my back, he offered me an ice pack that he had to use for a night. He didn't have to go that extra mile for me, but he did! All I can say is that the team of Leslie and Vince are winners and I invite anyone to stay at their B&B for an excellent getaway and you will still be treated like family...great stuff!!
5 on June 25, 2014
Leslie and Vince are wonderful and the reason I go back year after year. The breakfast is delicious.
5 on June 22, 2014
We stayed at the Mooring B&B for two nights… we were on an Eastern Shores (VA, MD, & DE) vacation. We stayed in room 2… ground floor room with a private entrance which was nicely decorated; clean; comfortable; and serviced with cable TV and Wi-Fi. The room has a private bath, a kitchenette, sitting area, and an off-the-street parking space. The Mooring is walking distance to the beach, local shopping, restaurants, and tourist activities. A sweet and savory breakfast is served each morning… its gourmet and delicious. Vince & Leslie, the owners, were excellent hosts. My wife and I will do the Mooring again!!
5 on June 21, 2014
This was my second visit to The Mooring. Vince and Leslie are wonderful hosts. Breakfast was yummy as was afternoon tea. My friend and I love their beautiful front porch. Also they are close to the beach and other places in town.
5 on June 18, 2014
Leslie and Vince are such great hosts, with many tailored suggestions for places to visit and dine. The rooms are exactly how I picture victorian bed and breakfasts, very tasteful and beautifully done! My family has stayed for several years now, and by far, this is definitely my favorite place!(and we have stayed at Congress Hall). Much more for the value, the breakfasts can't be beat and the hospitality to boot!! My teens love it here and the Mooring is one of the few bed and breakfasts we can bring our (well behaved) children.

This is the second year I went to Cape May with my Son and daughter in law. The last time we stayed in a hotel with a pool. The cost was too prohibitive, so this time we stayed at the Mooring. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast. The house was beautiful and well kept . The location was close to the beach and central to town. The breakfasts were delicious. Vince the innkeeper defines hospitality. From the moment we arrived, he worked it out so my son had a great parking spot right in front of the inn because. Shortly thereafter, he assisted us in making dinner reservations for the next two nights. This wasn't an easy task since it was restaurant week. His recommendations were wonderful. Vince was fullof information and always ready to help. He lives at the inn so he was always close by to address any questions or concerns. I was celebrating my 50th birthday and e was kind enough to give me a bottle of local wine as a gift. I did not receive this type of service at the hotel. Needless to say, next year we will be returning to the Mooring.
5 on June 14, 2014
Excellent B & B
5 on June 13, 2014
The Best B&B in Town My wife and I have stayed at Mooring on a few occasions and it seems to get better each time. The rooms are decorated beautifully and are extremely clean and comfortable. The location is one block from the beach and convenient to many attractions and restaurants. The sweet and savory breakfast is gourmet and delicious. And most of all, Vince and Leslie are the most wonderful and gracious hosts. I would recommend Mooring to anyone that wants a relaxing experience by the beach. James & Patty
4.6 on June 02, 2014
We stayed in room 2, it was very nicely decorate, clean, and the king bed was very comfy. It has a small bathroom, but a big claw foot tub, and a kitchenette and sitting area. The nicest part was the private entrance, and easy 1 block access to the beach. The house itself is very nice, and the breakfasts were YUMMY. We had cinnamon french toast with bananas one day and waffles with lemon whipped cream and blueberries another. They also offered egg dishes and every breakfast includes fruit, pastry, yogurt, coffee/tea etc. - all very fresh and delicious. From 4-5 pm tea was offered, iced on a hot day and hot tea on a cool day, with yummy cookies. The owners are super friendly and helpful, and their procedures were easy to follow (no looooong overly detailed speech like some B&B check-ins). We had a great stay!
5 on June 01, 2014
My wife and I just shared a perfect Memorial Day weekend in Cape May staying at the Mooring Bed and Breakfast. We arrived afterhours for normal check-in but Vince nonetheless met us at the doorstep and gave us a quick rundown of the house. Every morning we were treated to an absolutely delicious and hearty breakfast prepared skillfully by Leslie. The house was beautiful and well kept. Of course Cape May itself was as charming as ever, and the weather made for several perfect beach days. At night we were able to quickly fall off to sleep in peaceful quiet. Leslie and Vince were so helpful and friendly for our entire stay. We can't wait to get back! ... Bill & Tina - Lancaster-Lititz, PA

My wife and I just returned from a 3 night stay at The Mooring in Cape May over Memorial Day weekend 2014 ( Sun - Wed). We've spent long weekends in Cape May at B&B's once or twice a year for the past 15 years. For some reason, I never discovered The Mooring until this year. I wanted a change from the 2 B&B's we normally frequent and I searched Cape May.com, reviewing all of the B&B's for availability and reviewing the interiors of all of them. I was very surprised when I looked at The Mooring site! Why had I not seen this place before? I mean we have both seen The Mooring from the outside but never reviewed their website to see what the inside looked like. I've come to the conclusion that the outside is very misleading. While a nice looking home, the outside does not lead you to believe this house is anything but ordinary. However, now that we have vacationed there, I now know that the inside is extraordinary! The home is huge and the rooms are beautiful and immaculate! We stayed in Room #1 on the 1st floor. This room is in the front of the house right off the front porch. The room will sleep 3 people with a queen size bed and a day bed. The room is painted in a mix of blues and golds that complement one another beautifully! The furniture is traditional Victorian era and in very good shape. The house keeping staff keeps the house spotless! The owners, Leslie and Vince are wonderful people and their love and pride in The Mooring is evident. Vince met us on Sunday when we arrived and is such a pleasant person who always has a smile on his face and is willing to chat with you about the house or Cape May in general. Leslie stays mostly in the background, cooking wonderful breakfasts and cookies and cake for afternoon tea. We met her at breakfast one morning and she is delightful. My wife and I loved staying at The Mooring and meeting Vince and Leslie and have every intention to vacation there again! Actually, I cannot wait to go back!
5 on May 20, 2014
Relaxing and enjoyable are just two words to describe our weekend at the Mooring. Leslie and Vince are extremely hospitable, welcoming, and detailed-oriented. The house was immaculate and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was savory and nicely presented. We will definitely be coming back!! Thanks again! Darlene and Debbie
5 on May 19, 2014
The place is beautiful and so clean you can eat off the floors. Would recommend to anyone. My husband and I have been going there for 10 years and have not been disappointed once. Leslie and Vince are great and are always helpful in making sure their guests feel at home.

Couldn't be more pleased!! Leslie & Vince were very welcoming and made everything so special for us, even down to remembering each of our names. The room was gorgeous! The food, wonderful!! We highly recommend making The Mooring your lodging for all things Cape May!

If you have never been to a bed & breakfast but pictured one in your head, Mooring B&B is what you pictured!! Terrific porch, relaxing and inviting homey feel, great breakfast, perfect location, and Leslie & Vince are responsible for all of it!
4.2 on October 22, 2013
The hospitality and breakfast at the Mooring were great. I would not, however, stay on the 1st floor again since it was right off the porch and we could not keep our doors/windows open to get the nice breeze. So it was a little warm in the room and we had to use the a/c.
4.4 on October 16, 2013
The Mooring B&B was terrific in all aspects. Our room was quite beautiful, quiet and extremely well decorated. The Mooring's location in Cape May is well within walking distance to all features of this quaint community.
4.6 on September 30, 2013
The Mooring's colors are true to the Victorian era homes - not as bright as some of the other homes in the area; it is a truly gorgeous home. Vince makes the stay; he is warm, welcoming and readily willing to offer suggestions for dinner plans. We stayed in room 1 and it was very nice; the two 'windows' which look like doors have screens which allow the air to come in; and you can overlook the front of the porch. Leslie is a fantastic chef; her breakfasts were abundant, creative and EXCELLENT. I highly recommend a stay at The Mooring; you won't be sorry.

This is a very charming B&B that is well maintained and managed by gracious hosts who are clearly dedicated to providing a first-rate experience for their guests.

The Mooring is very close to the beach and walking distance to shopping. The owner, Vince, is very friendly and helpful. Having been other B&B's I was expecting a lavish breakfast and afternoon tea. Breakfast included toast, yogurt, either a sweet choice - waffles or french toast, a savory choice - some kind of scrambled eggs, and breakfast meat. Afternoon tea was a pitcher of iced tea and store bought cake or cookies. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't special. The house is nicely decorated and the rooms are nice.

This was a great plac e to stay! Vince was most attentive to all details.

Just returned from a relaxing stay at The Mooring. Vince couldn't have done a better job making us feel welcome and recommending restaurants and activities. The Mooring is beautifully restored and decorated. Our room was as cozy as it looked in the pictures. Breakfasts were very good! Visit and enjoy!

My wife and I have made the Mooring our tradition for Labor Day weekend. We have just come back from our third year with Leslie and Vince at the Mooring and we can safely say we truly feel we have a home at the shore when we visit. Cape May is a great place with a slow pace, beach town feel. However, this pace and feel is accentuated by the warmth and caring that Leslie and Vince put into your stay with them at the Mooring. The Inn Itself is appointed with an eclectic array of period art and furnishings that are well displayed and placed so that all of the rooms can be utilized to help you escape into the rest and relaxation that can be found at the Mooring. The breakfast is: well the best way to describe it... "to die for.....!!!!" From the yogurt with honey and candied pecans, to the coconut French toast and the hash brown casserole you will be more than satisfied all day. Vince has an exceptional understanding of Cape May and is wonderful at restaurant recommendations, which compliments his warm, engaging attitude. We can only say that any time you want to stay in Cape May you have to check out Leslie and Vince at the Mooring.

We really enjoyed our stay at Mooring B&B. It is a great place for a stress free vacation.
5 on September 03, 2013
My wife introduced to the charms of Cape May a few years ago. We both agreed that this stay was the best we have had since we started going together. Breakfast is on par with many restaurants in the area. Vince and Leslie are warm and welcoming to their B&B. One block from the beach. Stay at the Mooring. You won't be disappointed.
5 on August 31, 2013
3rd year in a row we spent our anniversary at the Mooring. Leslie and Vince make you feel that you are family and that you are not just staying at any old B&B. Top notch breakfast and afternoon treats. They also KNOW Cape May. Looking forward to our visit next year. Rich & Irene
4.8 on August 29, 2013
The Mooring is wonderful place to stay. This was the second time I have stayed at the Mooring. Vince and Leslie are great and go to great lengths to make everything perfect.
5 on August 21, 2013
It was our 10th wedding anniversary and The Mooring was the perfect place to spend it. The room was fantastic and the food was outstanding. Vince was there for our every need, not that we needed him for anything. We will be back again.
5 on August 20, 2013
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at Mooring B&B. We were looking for a B&B or Resort in Cape May close to the beach. We find that most of the resorts/B&Bs on Beach Ave are almost double the price. Mooring is a block away from the beach, very close to downtown restaurants and the rooms are very clean. In particular, I find the beaches are nicer closer to the cape end. There is parking (plus a Bicycle Parking). Vince was very informative and always around to answer questions in a friendly positive manner. Breakfast was outstanding. We will return. ~Dave from Freehold, NJ

great service and food
5 on August 01, 2013
We have been vacationing at The Mooring for 10 years now. Ten years of wonderful breakfasts, clean and beautifully decorated rooms, of meeting the friendliest guest, peace and quiet and of course Leslie and Vince. We just love them and appreciate their kindness and friendship. Always so accommodating. Hope we are able to enjoy another 10 years in Cape May at The Mooring. Maureen and Tom from North Jersey
4.2 on July 29, 2013
Stayed here with my boyfriend for a long weekend. Cute as a button and the owner Vince is fantastic at what he does! Always around and ready to give you advice. The location CAN NOT be beat. I block to the beach, and maybe 2 to the walking mall? Although if you drive in cape may you should be ashamed! It's so incredible to walk around. We stayed in room 18, Nice room all around, bathroom is huge...though old world like. So there's a claw foot tub that's a little dangerous to get into, and they could use a towel rack for bathing suits or towels, but it's a small inconvenience. If you are looking for new and modern this isn't it, but if you're looking at B&B's your mostly out of luck for that anyways. Overall a lovely visit and stay! OH! and I got a peek at room 8... reeeeeeeally nice... so try to get that one if you can!
4.6 on July 27, 2013
Excellent breakfast and Vince is full of personality warm and charming. Would definitely go back again. Love it!!!

I really recommend to have a stay in this B&B if you are in or near Cape May! We really enjoyed it. Thanks to Vince and his wife

An excellent B&B and highly recommended to all. Wonderful room, great food and close to the beach. What more could one ask for.
5 on July 10, 2013
Our stay at The Mooring was very nice. The place was well cared for, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was so good...there were numerous options and the food was delicious. It was a great place to relax, was quiet yet close to the beach and other places in town. We loved being there and hope to come back soon!
4.4 on July 07, 2013
Always welcoming, pleasant. Good suggestions and down-to-earth. Super stay!
5 on June 30, 2013
My husband and I went to Cape May for a short getaway. This was our first time at The Mooring. Cape May is an expensive town, but this B&B was a great value. The rooms are nice, the owners friendly, and the food delicious. The inn's location is very good. We did not feel like we were a very far walk from anything we needed. We didn't use our car once while we were there. We were having such a nice time that we decided to stay an extra night. We needed to switch rooms to one that was available for our extra night, but the owner made the move very easy for us. It was a wonderful and relaxing stay.
5 on June 28, 2013
First time ever in a B&B, which was my daughter's idea to try one. We stayed in Rm. 1 for a long weekend the beginning of June. We checked out everything we could find online. What drew us to The Mooring was it's appearance, the dining room (tables for 2 which made it more personal, yet could push them together if you had more people), in room shower/bathroom, it was close to a number of activities, and it had parking for all but 2 rooms. Vince was very helpful, the food was excellent (and very fresh), the coffee was perfect, the entire place was immaculate (highly impressed), our room was great and the couple of rules boiled down to common courtesy. We would definitely stay here again and have already recommended The Mooring to friends -- even those who prefer hotels. K&J
4.8 on June 28, 2013
Vince & Leslie take extra special care of you and the Mooring.It was our second time there and we will be returning. Leslie makes an array of appetizing breakfast items. We definately recommend the cheese tray. Thanks for the TLC- H & D : )
4.8 on June 27, 2013
Leslie and Vince were amazing hosts. The breakfasts were top notch (continental plus made-to-order french toast specials and egg specials), and Vince provides some great tips on things to do and places to eat. The location was a block from the beach, and the closest entry was where you buy beach tags, so getting on the beach was very easy. Towels provided by the B&B. A 5-10 minute walk from the Washington St. mall. Bike Rentals across the street. Great front porch for reading. We stayed in room 1, which was great for 3 friends, but go upstairs for something a little more quiet and intimate! Overall, my friends and I could not stop raving about our experience here!

Very convenient to have parking and outdoor showers, the room was very clean and Vince is extremely hospitable.

I stayed at the Mooring first week of June. My Fiance and I stayed in the room 2 which was beautiful very spacious . We loved how friendly the owners were and had an amazing time there and in Cape May . The breakfast was also delicious the Banana Fosters French toast and the Blue Berry Crumb French toast were both to die for ! Cant wait to go back !

We've been visiting The Mooring for seven years, and each time still feels special. Hosts Leslie and Vince are the best; we will return! dg

Great room, great location and fantastic hosts. Vince's breakfasts are game changing! White truffle, pecorino omelette an coconut crumb French toast - world class!

Friendly, helpful service. Very comfortable room. Excellent breakfast.
4.8 on May 10, 2013
My husband and I recently stayed at The Mooring and the experience was better than we expected. We have stayed at many B&B's in Cape May and by far this was the best! It was extremely clean, Vince and Leslie were outstanding hosts and the breakfasts were stupendous, as well as the afternoon teas. We definitely will be going back. In fact, we believe this is the only B&B we will stay in at Cape May in the future.
4.6 on May 08, 2013
We had a lovely stay despite the wind and cold weather!!
5 on May 06, 2013
This was better than I could have imagined. I took my time looking at different B&B's before booking this one. Looking for a room that would comfortable sleep 3 sisters on a short mini getaway, and fit into our budget. We were greeted as we pulled into the parking lot. Vince was the most personable host, made us feel like we were special. He gave us a tour of our room, the parlor, dining room and kitchenette. Gave us insight on several of the restaurants and their menus. Since it was off season and we were the only ones there the first night he let us tour the upstair room. There is no doubt that which ever room you choose you will be very comfortable as all the rooms had their own special touches to them. The breakfast was out of this world; cooked by Leslie and served by Vince. Don't miss out on the cocunut french toast. The afternoon tea was delightful, and the room service was awesome. I have to say everything about this B&B was impeccable. My only regret was having to leave, but that was with the hopes of returning next year. I would highly recommend you try this lovely place.
5 on April 22, 2013
My wife and I have been to a few B&B's, and by far this was the best. Wonderful atmosphere, clean,relaxing and inviting!! Breakfast was awesome and coffee available 24/7! Vince is a great guy.....extremely helpful with everything you need to know about Cape May. We definitely would recommend it to friends and family!!
5 on April 21, 2013
My husband and I stayed this past weekend and had an amazing experience! We stayed in Room 14. This room doesn't have a tv but who needs one with all the great books provided? :) The room was very elegant, spacious and immaculate. Vince was beyond helpful and accommodating (he called several restaurants for us just to see if they were still seating for late dinners!). Leslie's breakfasts are to die for!!! You definitely don't want to miss her French toast and Greek yogurt. Thank you for an amazing stay and I'm looking forward to staying there again!
4.4 on October 17, 2012
Our room was very nice and worth the walk up to the 3rd floor. Breakfast on both days was delicious. Coffee and tea available at any time. Vince is great and knowledgeable about what to see and do in Cape May. It was our first time at The Mooring, but I'm sure it won't be our last.
5 on October 11, 2012
My 1st time at a Bed & Breakfast & I am spoiled forever! Vincent was amazing, the staff was very friendly. The Mooring is now my home away from home.! The house is beautifully decorated, our breakfast was delicious. The location is perfect, a nice quiet neighborhood located one block from the beach, shops, restaurants and broadwalk. We had a romantic weekend in a beautiful house by the sea.
4.4 on October 11, 2012
My wife and I enjoyed our stay at The Mooring and would recommend it to our friends and family. Breakfast was great!

Comfortable, charming, clean, close to the beach. A relaxing and inviting house. We would return!
4.8 on October 02, 2012
Vince at the Moorings was so friendly and welcoming. He gave us advice and suggestions on where to go and eat. It was like we met up with a long lost friend. Both suites were beautiful! Our smaller room was great too! The place was very clean and had a great breakfast. Tea time is a nice touch too! We will definitely return!
4.4 on October 01, 2012
Wonderful bed and breakfast with exceptional service by the owners. You won't be disappointed if you stay at the Mooring, especially during the off season.
4.8 on September 26, 2012
Perfect area, perfect room with great balcony view. Very friendly people and service and extremely clean. The Mooring displays beautiful antique pieces throughout its home but with modern rooms and bathrooms. Highly recommend, especially to those looking for an intimate getaway!! Loved it!!
5 on September 20, 2012
T he room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was exellent with a nice variety of fruits and eggs with a nice choice of beverages. You could not hope for a better location,one short block to the beach,and a fifteen minute walk to the mall. vincent & carol

This was the first time I visited Cape May N.J. It was also our first time at a B&B.My daughter and her husband gave both her/his parents a weekend at the Mooring as a thank you for their wedding.The first person to greet us was Vince. A wonderful down to earth person. It was like old friend getting together.A big hello and smile. .The staff could not do enough to make our stay warm and friendly.There are hundreds of B&B in Cape May but from my experience and listening to the other guest who were there said the same about the people (Staff) outstanding. This is the place to go and stay awhile. I can not see me staying any other place but MOORING. see you soon thank you John Alleva
5 on September 18, 2012
My boyfriend and I have stayed here the past two years now for our anniversary. We love this place, and will keep coming back! The breakfasts are always amazing and Vince and Leslie (and the other folks who work there) are so nice!

My wife and I recently spent 4days at The Mooring and found it to be the perfect place to stay in Cape May. It's a beautiful building at an excellent location.
4.8 on August 30, 2012
A tremendous stay! We loved it! Awesome breakfast, nice company and the room (Suite #8) is the #1 room to stay in!!!
5 on August 30, 2012
We LOVED our stay at the Mooring! We stayed in Room 1 on the first floor. The room was gorgeous, and despite being near the door was surprisingly private. The breakfasts were excellent and I appreciated having access to a fridge to store food and beverages while we were there. Vince's recommendations for local dining were spot on! We would definitely recommend the Mooring!
4.4 on August 28, 2012
Went down for a romantic time with the wife and got just that. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The place was quite and a wonderful spot. Can't wait to go back again!
5 on August 27, 2012
Great rooms, very clean ,excellent service .the breakfast were outstanding each morning. They offer several different choices of meals as well as fresh fruit and breads in addition to their outstandung coffee. Best choice we ever made and would use them again hands down!!
5 on August 27, 2012
We have been going to the Moorings for the past 3 years and we always enjoy our stay. Thank you Leslie and Vince for making our stay enjoyable!
4.8 on August 27, 2012
My wife and I reserved a "regular" room at the Mooring w/o t.v. and w/o assigned parking. We were greeted by Vince who very thoughtfully had kept street parking for us right in front of the B&B. That was an indicator of the kind, attentive service that marked our stay at the Moorings. Our room was fairly large, bright and airy. There was a small bathroom with shower that was well designed for a limited space. All linens and toiletries were nice and in adequate supply. Our host recommended two dining choices, one of which, The Washington Inn was excellent and deserves a return visit. Breakfast at the Mooring was a delight. In addition to a buffet with a variety of fruit and sweet or savory baked goods, greek yogurt was on offer garnished with honey, fruit, and glazed pecans. As if all of this wasn't enough, there is a daily "french toast" or egg offering. This made for a wonderful start of the day and at least equalled anything that we have had anywhere. I highly recommend the Mooring. It is in the charming Victorian tradition of Cape May.
4.4 on August 21, 2012
Rooms were over all very nice. One room had sink in main room ( #1) which was ok, but we had to transfer to a second room (#11) and the shower size was so small I could not move away from the water without bumping into the wall. Rooms are charmingly decorated and very nice size. The service is outstanding and very helpful and friendly. Very clean and a good value for Cape May, I think even though it was our first time visiting there. The breakfasts and afternoon tea were outstanding.Every day they offer a different type of french toast ( with apples , bananas, coconut) or a savory ( scrambled eggs prepared a different way) or just regular scramble. They also cut up a wide variety of fruit and their yogurt concoction is delicious. They also make a strata, put out bread and have a pumpkin or banana loaf. For tea, they put out iced tea and some sort bread pudding and cookies. In other words, they go all out.. The front porch is great to sit on also. I would definitely stay there again if I go back to Cape May.
5 on August 20, 2012
The rooms are beautiful and very clean. Vince is a wonderful, personaable host! Breakfast is delicious and the individual seating for couples is very nice. We go back year after year for our anniversary. We love it!
4.6 on August 19, 2012
but the time here at the Mooring was impressive. We've stayed at a number of B&B's in Cape May but the Mooring was by far was the best. Beautiful home, rooms and an unequaled cleanliness will have us coming back again, but with a lot more time to stay.
5 on August 15, 2012
Can't get enough of Cape May and the Mooring! We love room 10 with it's view! Breakfasts were outstanding, as always! Many thanks to Leslie and Vince for their gracious hospitality and experienced dinner suggestions! 355 (+-) days to go until our next visit!
5 on August 15, 2012
I come to the Mooring every year for my birthday and cannot wait for my visit every summer. The location is perfect - one block from the beach and arcade, and within walking distance to places like Cabanas and lots of shopping, but still quiet. The innkeepers Vince and Leslie are just wonderful - very hospitable. The rooms are a great value and most come with a parking space, which is ideal. You can't go wrong staying at The Mooring. Ask about their "picnic at the winery" package through the Cape May Winery too - it's a great way to spend a birthday afternoon!
4.6 on August 13, 2012
My husband and I stayed at The Mooring during the week of August 6, 2012. I booked this B&B solely on the web site reviews (which were unilaterly exceptional) and it did not disappoint. As a self professed gernaphobe, our room was extremely clean (though I could have used more room in the bathroom). The breakfasts were delicious (thank you, Leslie!), while the afternoon teas added to the overall charm. Vince could not do enough to make sure our stay was wonderful. We will definitely go back to The Mooring.
5 on August 11, 2012
Vince, Leslie, Michael and Emily were perfect hosts. Our stay was comfortable and very enjoyable. The breakfasts are the best.
5 on August 11, 2012
The Mooring is a beautifully decorated B&B with marvelous service, amenities and atmosphere. It is highly recommended for those who appreciate the charm and elegance of Cape May. Room 10 has private access to the second floor porch, so we rarely used air conditioning as the ocean breeze provided comfortable slumber. We look forward to our next visit, thank you Vince and Leslie!
5 on August 09, 2012
The Mooring was an exceptional Bed and Breakfast located in a fantastic position literally minutes to the beach, shopping, historical sites, and several major transportation routes. Vince and his staff / family at the Mooring were phenomenal; all aspects parking, outdoor showers, the spaces, cleanliness, and food service. attention to detail inside and out were Top notch period!! Vince was one of the most gracious hosts i have ever meet eager to serve and please whenever possible the Mooring deserves ever bit of credit they receive. Simply outstanding no endorsement needed it speaks for itself. Thanks Vince -Arthur
5 on August 07, 2012
The Mooring is perfectly located in Cape May: 1 block from beach 5-6 blocks from Washington St. Mall and restaurants. Leslie and Vince do the small things right, such as providing an outdoor shower for those who've already checked out but want to spend the day at the beach. This was our fourth summer at The Mooring, and we've already booked for next year.
5 on August 04, 2012
een going to the Mooring since 1993 and it aways been just great. We been inviting other couples with us , And the service has been great. Larry & Linda Zimmerman
4.8 on August 02, 2012
Just some suggestions for the room (14) in which we stayed: a little table for writing; a larger shower or removal of the shower rack. We fit fine, but larger customers might have some difficulty. The customer service was unsurpassed. We were comfortable and relaxed. Vince and Leslie definitely know how to run a B&B. They are friendly and go above and beyond to make your stay an enjoyable one. Our room price did not include a parking space, but Vince made sure we had one when we needed one. He paid attention to the little details that other establishments would easily miss. Thanks Vince and Leslie. We'll definitely be back. :)
5 on July 30, 2012
Leslie and Vince have created one of the best B&B's in Cape May through their attention to detail and their impeccable eye for style and decor. We've come to the Mooring for years now and we are never disappointed - each visit is restful and relaxing. Leslie has developed the Mooring breakfast menu that includes the choice of a savory egg dish, a specialty sweet dish (like coconut cream French toast), or Greek yogurt with fruit and nuts - along with fresh fruit and fresh baked muffins and bread. We love to sit on the broad front porch in the mornings to drink coffee and read the newspaper. And the location can't be beat - just a block away from the beach. I'd love to keep it our secret, but also, we want others to know that Leslie and Vince are incredible hosts - with the inside scoop on local restaurants and shopping. The Mooring is a beautiful, immaculate boarding house that we will come back to again and again. Definitely 5 stars on all accounts!
5 on July 23, 2012
Once again, my stay at the Mooring was a great one. Vince is more than accommodating and always has suggestions on where to eat and shop. It feels like home, if your home is a georgious Victorian with a gourmet cook for breakfast! I almost didn't share, I want to keep it for myself.
3.0 on July 19, 2012
This was a nice place and convenient location although I would not stay here in the summer again. We had a room on the third floor- nice room- but - the house had no air conditioning except our room. We sweated just walking up the stairs to get to the room. The bathroom did not get cooled off from a/c either. Host was helpful in dining suggestions and gave a map of the town.
4.4 on July 19, 2012
Leslie and Vince go out of their way to ensure that all of their guests are comfortable and well informed about the comings and goings, in and around Cape May. Their affable personality combined with an immaculate inn makes this a very pleasurable stay that we have looked forward to for over 7 years.
5 on July 18, 2012
We had a very pleasant stay. This was our 4th visit, and well worth it. We will return. The best getaway in town.
3.8 on July 17, 2012
Wonderful stay at The Mooring. The hosts are very friendly and accomodating. We will return.
5 on July 13, 2012
This was our 9th stay at the Mooring. We keep going back, for the comfort,the quiet, the cleanliness,the fabulous breakfast which is served to you and of course for Leslie and Vince. They are the friendliest, most helpful hosts you would hope to have at a B & B. It always feels like a home away from home. Anything you need Vince makes sure you have it asap. We love them and The Mooring, you won't be disappointed if you choose to stay here.
5 on July 13, 2012
Totally enjoyed our Mother/Daughter trip to Cape May and stay at the Mooring B&B. Excellent location for getting to shopping, restaurants and the beach. Was especially happy the Inn provided parking. Everything was perfect and Vince was an excellent host. Will definitely return.
4.2 on July 12, 2012
Vince was very welcoming and helpful during our stay. Great breakfast. Very close to the beach. Met a couple who have been clients for over 12 years, that says it all... Definitly recomended if you like victorian charm.
5 on July 11, 2012
From check in to departure, Vince was the most ouitstanding host. The anbiance of the B&B, The exceptional quality breakfast fare,this only happens once in your lifetime. We thank the Moorings for an outstanding vacation.
4.6 on July 09, 2012
This was our first stay at Mooring. Staff could not have been better Always available to answer any questions or make a restaurant recommendation. Very assessable location to beach. Within easy walking distance to mall & most restaurant. We would definitely stay here again
4.8 on July 07, 2012
Our 3 night stay at the Mooring exceeded our expectations. This was our first B and B stay and we loved it. Vince and staff were so accomodating and an absolute pleasure to see every morning with breakfastg waiting! Will definitely be back and highly recommend to everyone. John and Peggy Goble
4.4 on July 06, 2012
Leslie and Vince were outstanding in providing everything we needed. Breakfast was excellent.
4.4 on July 05, 2012
The beakfast(s) was so outstanding it's placed before bed! Vincent is a congenial host & Emily & Mike provided any service we requested. It's tops for cleanliness, food, service & location; less than a 3 minute walk to the beach. Very Victorian atmosphere. Highly recommended for a Cape May stay
4.6 on July 02, 2012
This was our sixth weekend at the Mooring and first in many years. We stayed in a large third floor bedroom with an updated bathroom with a large shower. This is unique for a B&B. We appreciated the upgrades which have taken place since our last visit and the food and service to be excellent. We love the Mooring's location, which allowed us to keep the car parked and walk to the beach, stores and restaurants.
5 on July 02, 2012
I would highly recommend The Mooring B&B. Vince & Leslie could not have been more accommodating. Everything was beyond our expectations and am looking forward to our next stay.
4.8 on July 01, 2012
Beautiful Victorian furnishings, wonderful location, rocking chairs on the porch, but the breakfast and afternoon tea were the deal clinchers! Healthy AND decadent breakfast selections.
4.8 on June 27, 2012
Wonderful house, wonderful hosts, wonderful food and beautiful surroundings. Refrigerators near the dining room and on the third floor are made available to the guests --a great plus for special needs. Rockers on the porch and comfortable living room. Spacious rooms. Vince's directions to everywhere were great. Just one block from the beach. An easy, relaxing getaway.
5 on June 25, 2012
My husband and I have stayed in many B&Bs between Ny and NJ and without a doubt the Mooring was our favorite! From the time we entered this lovely guest house we felt right at home. Vince and Leslie are warm and wonderful hosts and they do everything possible to make the stay completely enjoyable. The room was lovely and spacious and we had a porch that looked out to the ocean. (Room 10) The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful! We will definitely be back! Fran and Ed Fiore
5 on June 23, 2012
From our initial greeting, Vince and staff could not have been more hospitable and welcoming. The room was magnificent only outdone by the superb breakfast entrees. Our vacation was excellent and memorable due to the Moorings.
5 on June 20, 2012
First time we did a B & B it's usually a Hotel. I don't think I'll ever do a Hotel again unless a B & B isn't available. The owners were very peronable and friendly, also very helpfull on where to dine in their town. The atmosphere is impecable compared to a Hotel.
5 on June 20, 2012
This was my first time staying at a bed and breakfast and after staying at The Mooring I would definitely do it again! The room was homey and not tacky and Vince was extremely friendly and helpful! and of course the breakfast was delicious. STAY HERE.
4.6 on June 19, 2012
We stayed for two nights during the local music festival. The host is very welcoming, the setting is nice, quite close to the water front in a quiet neighborhood. Excellent breakfast, well served. We recoomend renting bikes to get around in Cape May. Overall, a very nice place, a bit pricey, but well worth it.

Our visit to Cape May was most exceptional from the very personal service from Vince, and his great ability to make you feel so at home, to the fabulous breakfasts with the most wonderful craft breads from Philadelphia, (something I will not forget), and the very special treats for the beginning of the day, excellent choices, and fresh and local ingredients! The atmosphere is full of good things here, due to the fact that Vince and Leslie have lovingly restored and cared for the Mooring. The time and the care shows so well in this 1899 home. Rm 10 is most exceptional with a full porch on the second floor, viewing the ocean in the most splendid town of Cape May, a time we will not soon forget. Thanks again to Vince for all the great advice and direction to enjoyment! In admiration for all the hard work and creativity in the on going restoring, impressive!Enjoyed the vivacious Emily,and Mike,working for their first Summer at The Mooring. We highly recommend The Mooring !

Our stay at the Mooring was exactly what we expected, the atmosphere was relaxing and cozy. Our host Vince was exceptionaly inviting and helpful. I would recommend the Mooring to friends and family. I think the location is just right if you prefer walking around town, close to the beach and near the shopping areas and many eateries.

The mooring exceeded our expectations, our room which was advertised as a smaller room was plenty large enough for the two of us, the service was outstanding and the breakfast was exceptional. We will be back again.

We had a great weekend at the Mooring. The B&B is beautiful! Breakfast was sooo good! Everyone was so friendly! Definately suggest the Mooring for your next trip to Cape May!

Everything about our stay at The Mooring was perfection - gorgeous room, beautiful historic home, wonderful friendly service, perfect location. Could not be happier!
4.2 on May 22, 2012
We had a marvelous two night stay at The Mooring. The Inn was charming and extremely clean. Our room, number 18 was lovely! The breakfast both mornings was wonderful. Vince was personable and helpful. Only one thing would have made our stay A+, the young lady who waited at breakfast on both days was not properly dressed for her position. Stained and ripped clothing is not acceptable. She should have been more professionally attired.
4.6 on May 18, 2012
Our second visit to The Mooring was even more enjoyable than the first: we both loved the privacy and comfort of Room 2. Breakfast is a real treat; our likes and dislikes were respected. Vince is a terrific host; his summer helper, Emily, is charming and accommodating. We look forward to our next visit. Chris and Rita
4.8 on May 16, 2012
Loved The Mooring. We got a great welcome from Emily on arrival. Our room was very pleasant and comfortable. Vince was there to offer restaurant recommendations and make reservations, give directions and supply sun screen when he found out we had none with us. We loved relaxing on the porch when we weren't out and about, and the blueberry crumb French toast was incredible! Our one word description for our weekend...Perfect!
5 on May 16, 2012
Our weekend stay at the mooring was fabulous. Great service, friendly and helpful. The decoration of the B&B was the best I have ever seen and have been to numerous establishments across the country. I give this B&B my highest rating
4.6 on May 16, 2012
The room we stayed in was lovely, the breakfasts and overall service was superior to most we have stayed at. The location and personal parking space is also a strong positive. We will be happy to return.

My husband and I stayed here for the first time and had a really enjoyable experience. Upon arriving at the Mooring, we were greeted at the door by one of the owners, Vince, who is full of energy and extremely nice. Vince gave us the grand tour of the B&B and then showed us to our room. The house itself is really very special. Every single thing has an antique flare to it, whether it be the cups used for morning/afternoon tea, the couches, photos on the wall, staircase, decor, etc. You really feel like you step back in time when you're here. You can tell the owners take immense pride in the appearance and are constantly maintaining the house. The location is great! It took us 10 minutes to walk to the town center and it's just steps away from the beach. The breakfasts were phenomenal and the service was great. Vince suggested several local restaurants and even offered to call and make our reservation which was really helpful as we had never been to Cape May before. Only a few minor disappointments. Our bed was really uncomfortable and could certainly use an upgrade (we stayed in room #2 with the private entrance/kitchen/parking). We both woke up with back aches because the mattress is sinking in the middle Also, because room #2 is located on the bottom floor, you hear every single noise in the house. The kitchen must be located right behind our bathroom because we could hear full on conversations from the staff starting at 7 am which made for sleeping in on our vacation impossible. Also, we were woken up by the other guests coming down the squeaky stair case from the upper floors each morning as well. I suppose the noise comes with the territory of an old house though. All in all, we really enjoyed our B&B experience and would definitely come back. We would just request a different room on one of the higher floors to avoid the noise.
5 on May 06, 2012
I just want to thank the Staff at the Mooring for making our stay a perfect one. From the unbelievable breakfast each morning to the romantic room setting to the free wine tasting tour, my wife and I will surely return. This is the best B&B in Cape May. Alan and Corinne
5 on May 04, 2012
This was our first time staying in a bed and breakfast. We were not disappointed. Everything was great.
5 on April 18, 2012
My husband and I just spend the weekend at the Mooring and it was Wonderful! We have stayed at other bed and breakfast's in Cape May, but this was by far the BEST! When we arrived we were greated by the owner Vince, and he was very friendly and if you needed anything was always there for you. The room that we stayed in was perfect. Very clean, roomy and a very comfortable bed! The best was the wonderful breakfast the was prepared by Leslie! Our first day we had the coconut french toast, it was the best I have ever had, until Sunday came and then I had the peach french toast. What my husband and I liked so much about staying at the Mooring is that they offer you a choice at breakfast. That is very nice, but when we go back, I will be looking forward to the french toast! We are already making plans to go back in October to celebrate our anniversary and we will stay in another room! Cant wait!
4.2 on April 18, 2012
We stayed at this B&B April 2012 and I must say, this place has set the bar for great service and delightful cozy rooms. Vince and Leslie were gracious and extremely helpful. As a couple that travels often, we could not have picked a better place. You definitely get what you pay for and more!
4.2 on October 19, 2011
So...as soon as we were greeted by Vince we felt right at home. Vince greeted us at the door by first name, like guest that he was expecting for a holiday gettogether. He was very informative about the local restaurants and was able to get us a reservation at the Oyster Bay which was absolutly fabulous!! Vince was able to give us a last minute reservation on columbus day weekend, which we were so very thankful for!! We had gorgeous weather for the two days that we were there. In the morning for breakfast, I enjoyed a delicious sit down breakfast of fresh fruit, and peach french toast which was out of this world. We stayed in room #1 which was perfectly cozy and just a few steps from the front porch where my fiance and I enjoyed a glass of wine together. The Mooring is only a block from the beach, and also just a little further of a walk to the outside town mall. Vince I thank you again for making a wonderful memorable weekend happen for us!!!
5 on October 06, 2011
Another great visit to my favorite bed and breakfast. The room was immaculate. Vince is so welcoming and what a terrific breakfast. I can't wait to go back.
4.8 on October 03, 2011
We stayed at the Mooring for 3 nights. The inn was beautiful and very clean. The suite was great, private entrance off the portch, king size bed, claw foot tub, and a mini kitchenette off the main room. Cozy place. Beautiful building and furnishings. Breakfast was outstanding! From the coconut french toast, pancakes, eggs, to the fresh fruit and yogurt. Vince and Leslie were incredible....This was our first time in a B&B in Cape May and we hope to do so again at the Mooring! L&M
5 on October 03, 2011
The room (which was advertised as the smallest) was very nice. Plenty of space and really all that was needed for our stay. My only complaint would be there was no tv. The upside was it motivated us to get out more. Owners were extremely friend and breakfast was delicious. Location was also great being within walking distance to everything. I would highly recommend and hope to return.
4.6 on September 28, 2011
The Mooring is a lovely place to stay. Its located one block from the beach and has a warm and welcoming atmopsphere. Vince is an exceptional host! He makes you feel very much at home which is one reason why I would return and also recommend it to anyone looking for a charming B&B.
4.4 on September 24, 2011
Our stay was relaxing. The suite was really nice, the king size bed was great and very comfy. Comforts of home, with great service and hospitality.
4.8 on September 19, 2011
The room was lovely, with beautiful stained glass windows and a small sitting area by a bay window. It was convenient, comfortable, clean and quiet. Enjoyed the front porch and rocking chairs. Breakfast was delicious, with a choice between sweet and savory. Yogurt, fresh fruit, juice and bread were also available. Being tea drinkers, we also enjoyed the varied selection of teas available. The host made you feel right at home, was very amiable and helpful. Will definitely visit again.

returned to cape may after 5 years - we (my husband and I) enjoyed the beach, shopping and dining and 2 glorious sunsets!
4.6 on September 16, 2011
Leslie and Vince were great hosts and made our stay very enjoyable. We will return on our next visit to Cape May.
4.8 on September 11, 2011
My husband and I stayed at the Mooring for 2 nights in celebration of our 25th anniversary. The inn was beautiful and very clean...our room had 2 sets of floor to ceiling stained glass french doors which led onto a porch with rocking chairs and a view of the ocean. The breakfasts were outstanding! Vince and Leslie were so friendly and hospitable....This was our first time in Cape May and we hope to make it an annual trip and will definitely be at the Mooring!
5 on September 11, 2011
The Mooring is extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and the hosts are extremely personable and cater to your every need!! We will certainly return to The Mooring!!:)
5 on September 06, 2011
My wife and I just spent Labor Day weekend at the Mooring and all I can say is that the experience was indeed "Outstanding".... Let me first start with the hospitality of two exceptional individuals. Leslie and Vince were a pleasure to do business with and they both made us feel like we were members of their own families. Vince has a long time knowledge of the area having lived in Cape May all of his life. From the restaurants to sightseeing and local activities - he is a wealth of informaiton. From the first time I spoke with Leslie to the day she sat with us and chatted over breakfast, we found her to be an absolute joy in every way from her cooking to the way in which the reservations were handled, once again we were made to feel special. We found the room matched the character of the "Inn". Well maintained and beautifully decorated. The antique style went well with the overall ambiance. The grounds were also well maintained and we can't forget the welcome bag with beach towels which was a nice touch. Now let's not forget the other "B" in Bed and BREAKFAST.... All we can say is WOW.... Leslie did a exceptional job in food preparation and visual appeal not to mention wonderful flavor and quality. From the Greek Yogurt to the coffee all was just perfect. Vince's style of service was laid back, fun and enjoyable. A priviate table for each couple was a great way to enjoy breakfast and with the dinning room overlooking the parlor it was a nice way to start the day. This was the first experience that my wife and I ever had in a B&B and we can say without hesitation that this experience has made us B&B people from now on. We plan on many more weekends with Vince and Leslie and if you are planning a weekend in Cape May, be sure to include the Mooring as the place to stay... You will NOT be disappointed....!!!!!!!!!!!
4.8 on September 05, 2011
We love this place! Leslie takes this place up a notch! There are always pleasant changes when we return. Vince is alway helpful and ready to answer any questions we may have. Can't wait to go back.
3.6 on September 02, 2011
Stayed in room2. It was a lovely place and had a great time. Would definitely go back again. The weather was wonderful, air conditioner not needed and we could hear the ocean at night with the windows open.
5 on August 31, 2011
My wife and I stay at the Mooring for a week or so every August. We are thinking about staying twice a year in the future. Leslie and Vince treat us like old friends and make us feel like guests in their home. Vince is a storehouse of Cape May knowledge and has never given us a bad piece of advice. The breakfasts are imaginative and always superb. We have stayed in several of the rooms. Each has its own individual charm, but they are all delightful; clean, well-maintained and beautifully appointed. Little things like afternoon tea taken on the porch or in the charming, victorian sitting room bring a level of civility that is often missing elsewhere.
5 on August 29, 2011
We have stayed at this Bed and Breakfast three times and we love it. Vince and Leslie are perfect hosts.The rooms are clean and beautiful. We love sitting on the porch drinking the delicious homemade ice tea and eating the cookies. But the best thing of all is the delicious breakfast especially the Blueberry French Toast that has cream cheese in it. We will be returning to the Mooring many times in the future.
5 on August 29, 2011
We've been staying at the Mooring for years and consider it home. It is extremely neat and clean with yearly upgrades. Their 10 rooms/suites are very comfortable (have stayed in #2, 10, 12, and 16 several times) and beautifully decorated. Leslie and Vince take pride in their B&B and are wonderful hosts who treat you like family. Their breakfasts are delicious with daily sweet/savory choices. They are constantly reinventing their menus of french toasts, belgian waffles, and egg dishes so that there is always something new. It wouldn't be summer without staying at the Mooring!
4.8 on August 24, 2011
We had a wonderful 4 night stay at the Mooring and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing and environmentally conscience B&B that offers a delicious breakfast, gracious host and location that is close to Washington Plaza and the beach.
5 on August 21, 2011
We had a wonderful stay at the Mooring. The owners were marvelous and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The Mooring was extremely clean and the breakfast was great. We loved our stay
4.6 on August 15, 2011
We recently spent several nights here and it was just delightful. This is a beautiful and tastefully decorated inn, thanks to the talented Leslie, and Vince is just a truly wonderful host. His suggestions on eateries and places to visit were right on and he takes personal pride in making sure his guests are contented. They serve a continental breakfast with a hot entree that is just delicious, such as the apple french toast and banana pecan waffles. Close to the beach, the historic district and walking distance to the mall, this place has it all. We'll be back!
5 on August 12, 2011
My wife and I have just returned from our July respite at The Mooring. Let me start off by saying, “It is very hard to say exactly what’s BEST about Vince and Leslie”, only because they do so many good things right. With their attention to detail, they do an excellent job of running this B&B. A stop over at The Mooring certainly has to be at the top of any one’s… ”Must Stay While in Cape May” list…. that is anyone who knows anything about Cape May B&Bs. The original purpose of The Mooring was as a Guest House. The ambience of the relaxed and refreshing B&B atmosphere that Vince and Leslie provide is reminiscent of those days of old. This, combined with a go out of their way attitude to ensure guest satisfaction, makes The Mooring a special experience. It is certainly one that we look forward to and enjoy as much as possible. So without getting into too much more detail, go experience The Mooring Guest House for yourself, and I’ll let Leslie and Vince do what they do best, everything.
4.8 on August 12, 2011
We just returned from another relaxing 5 night stay at the Mooring, a summer tradition that we hope to keep! We have been to numerous B&Bs along the North East coast and the Mooring is definitely one of the best ones. Leslie & Vince know how to be the most accommodating hosts and our room (#2) has always been a home away from home for us in the summer. Thanks Vince and Leslie for another great vacation!!! - Amy and Chris
5 on August 11, 2011
Very friendly host. Breakfast was outstanding. We love the porch!
4.8 on August 09, 2011
This bed and breakfast was great. The rooms were outstanding. All are very well decorated. The morning breakfast was great. All food was fresh and made that day. Vince Casale was very friendly and always helpful. A great Bed and Breakfast keep this one in mind when a vacation is needed.
4.6 on August 08, 2011
Our first time in Cape May and we had a great time here. The inn is close close to both the beach and the main shopping and restaurant areas, everything is pretty much within walking distance. The neighborhood is delightful, perfect for a bike ride or walk in the evening. Of course, that's if you can tear yourself away from that big shady front porch where there always seems to be a breeze. We were there on two of the hottest days of the year, and our room on the third floor was a little warm (although beautiful and very comfortable bed.) Hated doing it, but had to leave the window unit on all day as it took just too long to cool down if you turned it on after you got in at night. The best part of this place is Vince. He knows this town and everything he recommended was spot on. Breakfasts were hearty and different each morning. We also appreciated the little extras like a refrigerator available to guests, beach towels, coffee available all day, etc. You can't go wrong here. Thanks, Vince. Mary and Bob
4.8 on August 07, 2011
If you want unpretentious, yet upscale, visit the Mooring. This was our tenth trip here, I think, and it never fails to please. Warm, inviting, great food, stellar service...and an unbeatable location. Not overly fancy or stuffy - just relaxing and comfortable. The innkeepers take care of every need, right down to a well-stocked outdoor shower. Vince is a Cape May native and can tell you anywhere to go, from a fabulous restaurant to the best surfing spot. And Leslie's breakfasts are second to none. Treat yourself to this wonderful getaway!
4.8 on August 04, 2011
We have been coming to this place since 1993. Leslie has always been a great cook and innkeeper, friendly but unobtrusive. Vince is a gregarious fellow always ready with a joke or reliable advice on food and entertainment choices. In the last few years, they have renovated the building and improved the landscaping, so that now it's even more comfortable and attractive. I highly recommend it as a perfect place to relax for a week, especially at the afternoon tea on the breezy terrace.

My husband and I stayed at the Mooring in Cape May, NJ for 3 nights in July. This was planned at the last minute and we were very lucky to find a place that had a vacancy. We did have to switch rooms after the first night, but it was much easier than we thought it would be. The staff took care of everything for us. Although this was not our first time in a B&B, it was our first time in Cape May. We are definitely going back to both. We had a great time. Vince was very welcoming and made us feel at home right away. The room, considered a standard, was very comfortable, clean, beautifully decorated and more than enough room for the both of us. The breakfasts are to die for. Leslie is a great cook. You can tell that Vince and Leslie really love running a B&B.
5 on August 03, 2011
Had a wonderful stay at The Mooring. It was convenient, so very clean, the breakfast was amazing, Vince was the perfect host, excellent value for the money. Room 11 an excellent choice for a single traveler. Have stayed in many bed and breakfast places, this was - by far - one of the best!
4.2 on August 02, 2011
I enjoyed my stay at the Mooring B&B. I would not hesitate to go back or recommend the B&B to family/friends.
4.2 on July 31, 2011
Vince was an excellent host. He was very knowledgable concerning area.
4.8 on July 29, 2011
Although we stayed in a small room, it was quite charming and comfortable. This house is beautifully decorated and extremely clean. Breakfasts were graciously presented and quite good. Vince's hospitality, helpfulness, and attention to every detail added greatly to the pleasantness of our stay. We loved the front porch! A very special place....exceptional in every way!
4.4 on July 25, 2011
The Mooring is a home away from home... that's a block from the beach at Cape May. Most everything we wanted to do on our vacation was a short walk away from the house. Vince was a delightfully helpful host. Leslie is an amazing cook in the kitchen, providing a delicious variety of savory and sweet breakfasts. The room (Room #2) was beautiful extremely clean and well kept. Our stay at the Mooring was memorable and my wife and I look forward to returning one day! -A&M

I have been visiting Cape May for over 20 years, and have stayed at various B & B. The Mooring was absolutely the best! Worth every penny.
4.0 on July 15, 2011
The Mooring really has it all. It's only a block from the beach, it's very clean, has GREAT breakfast's (several options each day...my favorite was a Bananas Foster French Toast!) and most rooms have there own parking space. They offered a few nice touches as well like afternoon tea and cookies and supplied you with beach towels. Only one negative that's worth mentioning is that there is free wi-fi, but I never really got a great signal. I would not hesitate to stay again.
4.0 on July 15, 2011
The best thing we can say about the Mooring is the innkeepers, Leslie and Vince. They are attentive, sensitive and truly caring toward their guests. It is almost like staying with old friends. Very comfortable, very accomodating and always present.
5 on July 12, 2011
Leslie and Vince are great hosts! We have been coming to the Mooring for several years now and each trip is a very pleasant experience. The Mooring has become a home away from home for us.
4.4 on July 12, 2011
Great B and B. Warm and cozy! Great hosts and delicious breakfast..only 1/2 block from the beach and with parking.. We want to return soon!
5 on July 11, 2011
Home away from home. All rooms are spotless and decorated to perfection, but warm and inviting. Quiet, without being stuffy. Breakfast is delicious, with several choices. If you go away hungry, there's something wrong with you. Short walk to the beach and walking distance to the mall. Leslie and Vince are wonderful. Can't wait for Christmas, that's when we get a gift certificate towards another stay. We have been going for many years now and wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
3.6 on July 05, 2011
Found the stay to be as expected or better, room 6 bathroom awkward as there are 3 steps down
3.8 on July 02, 2011
The room was just beautiful! Sitting on the porch in the hot afternoon with the cool breeze coming through was a highlight to our day. Vince was very personable and helpful. Also very accommodating allowing us to hang around well after check out, and use of the outdoor showers for us to clean up on that last day after spending the day on the beach. We hope we can come back soon to The Mooring!
4.6 on June 29, 2011
Stayed at The Mooring for 3 nights; wish it could have been longer. Had Room #10 which opened directly to a 2nd floor balconey which we used to read and relax for hours. The breakfasts prepared by Leslie were wonderful. Vince was a great host, always available, knowledgeable and just an all around nice person. There was nothing we wanted that he couldn't provide. Would definitely recommend this place and want to go back again. If you like to sit outside, ask for Room #10; of course, there is also a veranda on the first floor with plenty of room for all.
5 on June 27, 2011
This was our second summer that we stayed at The Mooring in Cape May. Room 11 was a standard room, but just as lovely as can be. The quality of the rooms are all outstanding. Last year we stayed in the King Suite Room 8, and it was also fantastic. The innkeepers are very accommodating and helpful. It is amazing to be a block from the beach, yet not find any sand in your room! Very clean!
5 on June 26, 2011
We really enjoyed our stay at The Mooring. Vince and Leslie were wonderful hosts who accomodated and pampered us throughout our stay. Our room was clean and beautifully decorated and made us feel comfortable and elegant. A variety of gourmet breakfasts were served everyday which were delicious. We would recommend Mooring B&B to anyone and would give it five stars. Go and enjoy!
4.6 on June 18, 2011
First floor room was very bright early in the morning. Breakfasts were excellent as was the hospitality of the hosts.
5 on June 13, 2011
This is a terrific place to stay in Cape May! The owners are wonderful, friendly and caring people who are passionate about what they do. The house is lovingly well cared for, and the breakfasts and afternoon teas were just great. We felt very comfortable during our stay, which made it easy for us to relax and enjoy living in the moment. Sitting on the front porch in the mornings with a cup of coffee, catching an ocean breeze was truly a pleasure. We would return to the Mooring in a heartbeat!
5 on June 12, 2011
Attention to fine details in room and inn decor, breakfast dining and care of guests. We enjoyed the refrigerator room for water and left-overs and the availability to enjoy a cup of tea after hours in the guest kitchen. We also delighted in afternoon tea as it gave us a chance to enjoy the lovely breezes on the porch and to truly relax.
4.8 on June 12, 2011
The accommodation is delightful - all sorts of little extras (such as a guests' kitchen for tea/coffee in off hours.) The location is within walking distance of many restaurants (Vince was very helpful in recommending places to eat) and, of course, the beautiful beach! Cape May proved to be a "Let's go back!" town - not too touristy - at least not in early "off-season" June. We stayed on the 3rd floor and had a lovely breeze and no need for A/C even with the unseasonably warm weather. A thoughtfully renovated bathroom with very clean large shower was so welcome! We'd go back in a moment!
4.2 on June 12, 2011
Recently visited Cape May and stayed at the Mooring. Very much enjoyed the Inn and would recommend it. Excellent location, quiet street, close to beach.

A BnB jewel wrapped in Victorian charm. Step back in time and relax in a well preserved 'time machine.'
4.2 on May 31, 2011
Excellent location, very close to the beach. Innkeepers were wonderful - accessible and very knowledgeable about Cape May.
4.2 on May 28, 2011
We stayed in room 10 with a lovely private porch with rocking chairs and a view of the ocean. Breakfast was wonderful with a sweet and savory breakfast choice each morning and tea and dessert from 4-5pm. Vince could not have been more helpful. We would absolutely stay at the Moorings again!

3.8 on May 25, 2011
Just a tad expensive for one room with breakfast, but I guess it's what the market bears. It's a great spot half a block from the beach and a few blocks from the Washington St. Mall - Vince was very knowledgeable and helpful about what to do in the area - the breakfast was amazing! We stayed in Room #1 right off the hallway but would stay upstairs next time because of the traffic/people noise.
5 on May 24, 2011
First time staying in a B&B and couldn’t be happier that we chose Mooring B&B for our weekend getaway. Arrived at 10:30PM on a Friday night and check-in went without a glitch. Ordered the Champagne & Roses special and wow was it perfect, the Roses were beautifully arranged and the Champagne was perfectly chilled. Leslie & Vince couldn’t more accommodating, Leslie’s breakfast special was amazing and Vince hospitality and local knowledge was exceptional.
4.6 on May 22, 2011
Perfect location, 3 minute walk to the beach, 10 minutes to great little shops and resturaunts! Leslie and Vince are very friendly, social, concerned innkeepers that take the time to chat and get to know you. Leslie prepares tasty and unique breakfasts. This is a well cared for wonderful inn, inside and out! We visited off season, as we do often with places that are seasonal, less crowds, more personal attention, perfect spring getaway. Plan to visit again early fall!
4.4 on May 16, 2011
We needed to get away to decompress and that is exactly what we were able to do. This inn was absolutely the most comfortable we have stayed in. We felt as if we were at home. What I mean is it did not feel like a museum the way many Victorian stye inns do. The breakfasts were terrific as were the afternoon teas. The location is perfect for the beach and the restaurants. The innkeepers could not have been more accommodating. Room #10 is as comfortable as they come. We do not usually stay in the same inn twice but we will likely be back to this one.
4.2 on May 16, 2011
Overall, it was a warm and welcoming experience. The food was great and Vince and Leslie couldn't be more charming. I'd highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
5 on May 12, 2011
Thank you, Vince and Leslie. My wife and I had a tremendous time. We loved the Mooring. Room 8 was a treat with its separate sitting room and bedroom. Coconut french toast was excellent. Apple topped waffles and the eggplant omelet were yummy as well. The wine tasting was just the activity after a long day of strolling Cape May. Vince gave us great advice for the local restaurants (Washington Inn and Georges for us). We did not want to leave.
5 on May 12, 2011
We stayed Saturday and Sunday and loved the place. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The wine and cheese tasting was great, and the room was clean and beautiful.
5 on March 23, 2011
This summer we'll celebrate our 25th anniversary with six days at the Mooring. It will be our 4th stay at the Mooring and we intend to keep coming back. Over the years we've stayed at a great many B&Bs in Cape May and have found the Mooring to be the most hospitable. Vince and Leslie are delightful and they're the reason we keep coming back. The Mooring is a beautifully decorated, well run, and clean B&B, which in Cape May, is not hard to find. It's the personalities of the two innkeepers that make the difference between a simply good experience and an absolutely wonderful one. They make the Mooring our #1 choice year after year.

Great atmosphere... like being in a mansion, but feeling very at-home at the same time. A pleasure to come back to after a long day shopping or at the beach :) DELICIOUS breakfasts! Truly a special place to stay.

We have been vacationing in Cape May for many years, each time trying a new B&B. Leslie and Vince are upbeat and hard working innkeepers. We stayed in the first floor room with private entrance and small kitchen. Great location, a short one block to the beach and an easy stroll into town. Breakfasts were fantastic. . . Leslie uses her own herbs from her garden in her recipes. Very clean albeit a bit pricey.

We just got back from a "well needed" 2 day getaway. The Mooring B & B was so wonderful. The owners, Vince and Leslie, are top-notch in the service industry. They made our stay very easy, and we loved our experience. We have been to many other B & B's, but this one was very special. This is one that you don't want to miss! We will definitely be back!

I took a special trip with my father to Cape May for the Bird Migration viewing and I needed a B&B that would accommodate both of us.....a spacious room and limited stairs for my Father. The Mooring was the perfect B&B and what made it more amazing were the owners, Leslie and Vince. They were more than accommodating in every way imaginable. They offered many recommendations of where to dine and places of interest. Their B&B is extremely warm, clean and comfortable. Now, about the breakfast....DELICIOUS. Because of the hospitality of both Leslie and Vince, and the comforts of their B&B, my Father and I had the most wonderful Father/Daughter weekend, a memory that will last forever. See you next year!

It was my first time in a b&b. So I have nothing to compare it to. Found that it had a few rules to always keep in the back of your mind. Parking was on premies, big plus for me. It is within walking distance of the Washington Square Shops. Wonderful houses to look at while walking and only a block away from the beach. My hosts were very personable and knoweledgable about the area. Breakfast was served between 8:30 and 10. And always with a smile and an explaination of the breakfast of the day. I would recommend this b&b to all my friends and will be coming back. Thank you Vince & Leslie.

My wife and I just returned home from our stay in room #2 and we would highly recommend The Mooring. The owners Leslie Valenza and Vince Casale provided us with everything and anything we could have ever wanted or needed to make our stay pleasant and trouble free. The room was warm, tastefully decorated, clean and accommodating. The meals were plentiful and extremely delicious. Leslie and Vince’s assistance with local restaurants and attractions was spot on. This in only our second B&B in Cape May we have stayed in and we would definitely stay at The Mooring again as our first choice.

I honestly can't say enough about how amazing The Mooring is!!!! And Leslie and Vince are incredible. We went to Cape May to celebrate my 40th Birthday, and The Mooring was just so perfect in every way.

Mooring is centrally located but not in the congested area of town so it is ideal! It's 2 blocks from the beach and about a 7 minute walk through beautiful neighborhoods to the shops and retaraunts. The B & B is clean and lovely and Vince is a riot! there is a side porch for hanging out and the breakfast is very good although every morning is the same menu prepared slightly differently: french toast and eggs. It is expensive though, but the quality and friendliness is worth it if you have the bucks to spend!

Loved access to a shared kitchen/ fridge. The place is CLEAN! Vince, one of the Inn Keepers was personable and happy to help out with restaurant suggestions and things to do!

This was our first stay in Cape May and because of the comforting service at The Mooring, we will definitely be back. Breakfasts were exceptional. Afternoon tea was cool, crisp and tasy. Our room was clean, pretty and quiet. I loved living in an old Victorian house for a few days. The innkeepers were generous and very helpful. There is nothing bad I can say about The Mooring. Sitting on the porch, rocking either during the afternoon eating our hotdogs and champagne or late at night in the cool,quiet of gentle Cape May, brought us joy, comfort and peace. Considering we booked it last minute and off of the internet, it couldn't have turned out any better. And the weather was perfect, too. October is sounding good to me now! Thanks. ~~~ Debby and Robert

This was the nicest bed and breakfast I have ever spent time. My friends and I were there for vacation in mid August. The food was great and the home itself, you could tell was filled with love. The owner Vince and Leslie truly do their very best to make your stay wonderful.

What a wonderful experience at the Mooring. The Innkeeper, Vince, was the most warm and friendly person we met in Cape May. He was very accommodating, explained every detail about the Inn and our stay, and the breakfast was out of this world. Our first time in Cape May, there wouldn't be a second thought about where we would stay again. The Inn was like taking a step back in time to the early 1900's, impecably furnished. I would highly recommend a stay at the Mooring when you visit Cape May! Vince, thanks for making our stay memorable. Rick & Bonnie.

This is my third visit to The Mooring. It is always my first pick when I get to choose the accomodations. The food is always delicious. I love the victorian setting and charm. One year I arrived and a young lady was playing the harp in the foyer. It was so classy. Leslie and Vince are alway ready and eager to answer any questions or give dinner recommendations. One visit to The Mooring and you will also understand why there is no need to go anywhere else when you have the best.

We stayed at the Mooring for a second decadent weekend in a row! Leslie went above and beyond to arrange a room at the last minute and Vince is the host with the most, going above and beyond on all levels. We have stayed there many times in past years and are never disappointed. It is truly an escape for the senses. Vince has a perpetual smile, a truly hospitable nature and provides everything a guest to Cape May could desire--the Mooring has excellent location, gorgeous uncluttered charming rooms, a sumptuous breakfast, towels, a beach bag, great reading matrials in the rooms, A/C, a kitchenette available at all times, an outdoor shower and an inviting rocking chair porch--just to name a few. Vince even secured us a parking spot AFTER we checked out two weekends in a row. We won't stay anywhere else--Marietta & William

Beautiful room, outstanding breakfast, and Vince's recommendations about everything from dining to boating were excellent.

From the moment we arrived at The Mooring, Vince truly made us feel as welcomed house guests. The Mooring was a beautiful place to stay for the 4th of July weekend. Being there made the holiday even more special. The gracious hosts and the delicious food were superb. Thank you Vince for the dinner and shopping recommendations--all were on target. See you next year!

We have stayed at The Mooring a number of times, the last time being the beginning of June of this year. We have a preference for Room 10, although all the rooms here are beautiful. Leslie & Vince are wonderful! They are always very helpful and just fun to talk to. The breakfasts are the best, savory being our favorite. And the goodies for afternoon tea are delicious! We will only stay at The Mooring when in Cape May at a B & B, and every time we go back, it's like being in our own little world that we're always sad to leave, but happy to come back to!

Nous adorons la ville de Cape May et maintenant, nous avons trouvé un endroit idéal pour deux ou trois personnes. Leslie et Vince sont de charmants hôtes! Déjeuners variés fournis avec la chambre. Nous avions une chambre avec des planchers de bois et une cuisine complète! Quel bonheur! Vous recherchez un endroit ou un restaurant, ils sont là pour rendre votre séjour agréable et vous sentir importants même si ce n'est que pour quelques jours. Nous reviendrons: nous avons trouvé un oasis de paix. Le thé avec gâteau à 16 heures à ne pas manquer non plus! Diane et Jacques.

Staying at the Mooring is like coming home. It's hard to explain, but it is just exceptional in every way. It is spotlessly clean, close to the beach and within walking distance of everything. The breakfasts are to die for and Leslie and Vince are the best innkeepers ever. The make you feel at home and comfortable, and leave you alone, yet are there if you need them for something. I will keep coming back and have recommended to others. I can not imagine anyone not having a relaxing and enjoyable experience at the Mooring. What are you waiting for? Do it, you'll be glad you did. Donna From Pennsylvania

I try to stay at the Mooring either twice or at least once a year. I have never been disappointed. The rooms are decorated beautifully. Vince is always very helpful to us when we need advice about where to shop, eat, etc. I also am very pleased with the yummy breakfasts. I am looking forward to another visit to my favorite Bed and Breakfast.
5 on June 17, 2010
Leslie and Vince are the best. Feels like home. Clean, Quiet, Breakfast is fabulous, you don't go away hungry. I think we have stayed in every room available. Going back again this season. We recommend this charming B&B to everyone who is planning on going to Cape May. You won't be disappointed. If you have a problem ( which is hightly unlikely) Vince takes care of it. One block from the beach, perfect!! from Jersey

The Mooring B&B rates 5 stars all around. I can't think of any place we would rather stay. Vince and Leslie are both wonderful and the breakfasts are superb. They always make sure we are comfortable and we highly recommend this B&B! We keep going back year after year.

My husband and I have been staying here for years, it is the absolute best in Cape May. We have nothing but good experiences here every year, Leslie and Vince always make you feel welcome and at home. The rooms are immaculate and the food is wonderful. We will keep coming back as long as they are here.

My wife and I have stayed at The Mooring every 4th of July weekend for the past 7 years. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. We love Cape May and The Mooring is the epitome of this relaxing and quaint (and historical) vacation destination. Leslie and Vince are very friendly, gracious hosts and will make you feel at home. We've stayed in many of the rooms and they are all clean, bright and meticulously cared for. They are always renovating and improving in the off-season, so there is always some new detail when you arrive the following year. More importantly, the breakfast and teatime sweets are incredibly delicious. A block from the beach, a few more to the town/mall/restaurants/etc...,The Mooring is the ideal 'home' for your stay in Cape May.

A week in August at The Mooring has become our traditional Cape May vacation. In fact, we make our reservations for the coming year before we check out from our current stay. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable, beautifully decorated and imaginatively appointed. There’s an ongoing program of upgrading and modernizing, without sacrificing the Victorian charm. The innkeepers, Leslie and Vincent, have created a warm and welcoming environment and have mastered the little things that elevate a great stay to one that’s unforgettable. The service is thorough and attentive without being overbearing. The breakfasts are imaginative and delightfully prepared. The meals are served in an elegant but unimposing dining room where, instead of dining family-style with assigned seating times, guest have their own tables and can wander in anytime during breakfast hours. We’re always made to feel like welcome friends and have come to value Vincent’s advice and his extensive, insider’s knowledge of the area. I would recommend The Mooring to anyone considering a vacation or even a long weekend in Cape May.

My husband and I recently came back from a 3 day stay. This was our first time at a bed and breakfast. We were very pleased. Vince was extremly helpful and good natured. Our room, #12, was quite cozy, bright, and had a good size bathroom. The decor was beautiful and we enjoyed the cool evening breeze as we sast on the front porch. Breakfast was excellent and we loved the afternoon tea (actually iced tea) that was provided everyday. The location is perfect, only 2 blocks away from the beach, and walking distant from everything. Parking is key in this area, and we were so happy to have our own parking spot. The only thing I can say is if you have a large SUV and you book room #12, drive another car. The space was not large enough. Vince was still able to accomodate us however. We enjoyed our stay immensly, and recommend it to anyone. Don't forget to try the scones during breakfast. They are out of this world!!

My husband and I spent the weekend at The Mooring to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful stay. The room was perfect, we loved hanging out on the porch, every detail was well thought out, and breakfast was fantastic. We can't wait to get back again!

We have been staying at The Mooring for at least five years, often two or three times a year at different seasons. We select one of the smallest rooms just to save a bit on our total trip but the room is always spotless, the breakfasts plentiful, on-site parking, great porch for relaxing and people watching, guest kitchen AND just one block from the beach. Leslie and Vince are attentive but not intrusive.

We have stayed at the Mooring two summers in a row. Both times, we were delighted with our room, our delicious breakfasts, and the innkeepers. Vince is always there to answer any questions you may have and help in any way possible. We highly reccomend this inn! ( we will be there again this summer!)

My two girlfriends and I visit Cape May once a year during a house tours weekend. This was the first time we stayed at the Mooring. I don't even know where to begin, so I'll begin with Vince. He was very helpful when I called to make our arrangements. When we arrived, he actually carried our luggage in (and back out when we left), something that's never happened to me at a Cape May B&B before. He gave such detailed information on the various aspects of the inn (times for everything, how to get back inside late in the evening, etc) that I thought he must have been a former teacher. He also offered himself for any recommendations we might need for dinner, activities, etc. Our room was beyond wonderful. The detail on the woodwork and wall treatments, furniture, etc was so extensive that, even after being there for over a day, we kept discovering details we hadn't noticed before (Vince gave full credit for that to Leslie). The Inn itself was convenient to everything we wanted to do. We parked the car in the provided off-street parking and never got in it again until we left. Breakfast was a delight. Despite the coconut french toast being highly recommended, when I explained that I didn't like coconut, I was offered scrambled eggs; it was made clear to me that it was no problem to support my pickiness. Our weekend in Cape May was perfect. Much of it was due to our stay at the Mooring.

My husband and I stayed at the Mooring for our five year anniversary (it was a surprise for my husband) Leslie and Vince were wonderful from the first phone call I made to inquire about the B & B, and throughout our entire stay. Leslie even went above & beyond and was totally discreet with making reservations so my husband did not have a clue about the trip until the the day that our vacation started. Leslie was also kind enough to recommend a local store that would deliver wine and cheese or she would have a bottle of chilled champagne in our room. I decided on the champagne and was not disappointed. I also cannot say enough about Vince! Friendly, wonderful personality. He knows his way around Cape May! Vince made a recommendation of Oyster Bay for dinner and we were both beyond happy with his suggestion. The breakfast would rival and gourmet restaurant! The baked coconut french toast was amazing! Vince and Leslie even sell a cookbook featuring not only the baked coconut french toast, but some other amazing recipes as well. I cannot say enough about our stay at the Mooring and I even recommended the the B & B to my mother in law who frequently visits Cape May. My husband and I will defiantly book our next stay in Cape May at the Mooring next year.

This was a fantastic 3 days in Labor Day weekend 2006. I was pleasantly surprised at the decor and the inn keepers were very informative about rest. and shops in Cape May. Their breakfast was superb, they would switch from savory to sweet for breakfast. Afternoon tea was served which was very nice. My room was decorated with dainty antiques but tastfully done. I will visit there on Labor Day 2007.
