Rhythm of the Sea

1123 Beach Avenue , Cape May, NJ 08204-2628 USA (Show map)


The only thing we overlook, is the ocean. Beach access is directly across Beach Avenue. We are the perfect Beach House. Our Craftsman-style Inn, circa 1915, includes many of the design features commonly associated with Craftsman homes: Bright, spacious rooms, open plan dining and living areas and an inglenook with a fireplace. Window benches to view the beach and beautiful natural wood floors. In keeping with the Arts and Crafts aesthetic we have decorated with furniture from the Stickley Company that is complemented by Mission-style lanterns and art pottery. Genuine hospitality and good food are served up daily. So, plan a trip soon. We can't wait to see you!

Awesome B&B experience

4.6 on September 05, 2017

My husband and I had a wonderful romantic getaway. Rhythm of the Sea provided a casual welcoming environment. Breakfast was delicious and all dietary needs were graciously met. We looked forward to afternoon treats and beverages. The beach is only steps away from the front door. They have beach chairs, beach towels and bicycles for guests to use. A guest refrigerator is on the first floor so we were able to keep our wine and cheese available for a pre dinner experience with other guests. There are many seating areas for guests to socialize.I highly recommend this B&B.

Great Stay at Rhythm of the Sea !

The view from all the rooms are fantastic! I snooped around to see out windows! We stayed in one the front rooms which had fantastic view and room was very large as was the bathroom! It was very comfortable with air conditioning & ceiling fan. Breakfast done by outstanding chef had 3 of the breakfasts here, all was great! Location us directly across the street with plenty of insite parking. And the best part was how fantastic our hosts were ROBYN and MISTY were so warm and welcoming every day! They treated us like we were the only guests there! LOVED it here, and dud not want to leave! My husband and I will definitely return! Highly recommend!!!

Pleasantly Surprised

We never stayed at a B&B before and heard horror stories about hearing the neighboring rooms. I hardly ever heard a peep! Room was clean, bed comfortable and view was nice from our room. The Breakfast was amazing! Enjoyed the old house living and feeling relaxed while there. When we came home from the beach there would be fresh cookies and tea and lemonade, we got spoiled! Only little problem was the water pressure in our shower, but didn't say anything because it wasn't that important, i figured it was an old house. I would definitely go back!

9th time and counting!

This was our 9th visit to Rhythm of the Sea in 10 years and we can't wait to go back. The location is perfect -- steps from the beach, close enough to the action to walk, far away enough for some peace and quiet. The porch is the perfect place to have a glass of wine, read, nap or just be. Breakfasts are always delicious, and different tastes are accommodated. Rooms are always spotless. Beach chairs and towels available for use. I can't rave about this place enough. See you soon, Robyn!

Lovely and peaceful. Large room, large bathroom but a small shower. Breakfast was exquisite every one of the four days there. Staff was wonderful. Maids service was very good. Practically across from beach access. We love this B& B.

Another great stay at Cape May

This was our second stay at Rhythm of the Sea and both stays were wonderful? The owner and staff are just the right amount of friendly without being around all of the time. The breakfasts were delicious and there were refreshments available in the afternoons. The location is the best since the beach is right across the street. And we appreciated the beach towels and beach chairs that they made available. We met a lot of nice friendly people at breakfast too. One of our favorite places to stay.

Charming B&B

This is our home away from home during the year's we do not do destination travel. Robyn and her staff are always warm and welcoming. It is a quiet, relaxing B&B which provides the atmosphere we are seeking when looking to unwind from our hectic work lives. Their breakfasts are wonderful as well.

Always a great place to stay

I love this B&B. The airyness of the first floor, the proximity to the beach, the pool table, the delicious breakfasts, the cleanliness. We went elsewhere once and were very disappointed, so will keep coming back. The owner, Robyn, is very interesting and nice. Never a disappointment.

Lovely Stay
