Mooring B & B

801 Stockton Avenue , Cape May, NJ 08204 USA (Show map)


Comfortable elegance in a classic Second Empire inn, the only Cape May B&B originally built as a guest house. We offer eight uncluttered guest rooms and two suites, each with a mix of period and contemporary furnishings, private bath, flat-screen TV and air conditioning ... a few with ocean views & two with private porch. The Mooring is in Cape May's historic district, one building back from the beach and an easy walk to the restaurants and shops of this small town. Complimentary on-site parking available for all premium rooms and suites. Free street parking available for the two standard rooms.

The best place to stay in Cape May

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!

Excellent stay

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.

Second Time Just As Nice!

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

Amazing owners

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.

Cape May's Best!

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!

Love the Mooring!

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& won't regret it!

Lucky Seven

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!

Another anniversary getaway

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.

Great stay at the Mooring

Wonderful experience!!

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!!!
