The Mission Inn Bed & Breakfast

1117 New Jersey Avenue , Cape May, NJ 08204 USA (Show map)

About

The Mission Inn, with its sweeping verandas is one block from the Atlantic Ocean. Inspired by Nelson Z. Graves' journey to the Pacific coast at the turn of the century, The Mission Inn is a perfect example of California Spanish Mission style. Its stained glass windows, Flemish Gable and latticed veranda contribute to the warm feeling of this al fresco house. The Mission Inn offers you the grandeur of the Gatsby Era. For many years the Inn has been a mecca for Hollywood film stars and Broadway show people. Enjoy the same ambiance as Ty Power, Erroll Flynn, Diana Barrymore, Gloria Swanson, and Robert Preston. When you stay an the Mission Inn, you feel that California state of mind. Her guests are colorful! If the walls could speak they would murmur a century of secrets. The Mission Inn is enchanting and fiercely romantic.

Awesome B&B in Cape May

5 on May 11, 2017

My husband and I had a fantastic time at the Mission Inn. By far, this B&B is one of the best I've stayed at. The owners take comfort and relaxation to the next level. Between the 4 pm cocktail hour, the treats left out for everyone, and the wonderful breakfast, our stay could not have been better. We are already planning our return trip to the Mission Inn.


Wonderful, relaxing getaway for wedding anniversary

5 on May 10, 2017

Thank you to Wendy and Laura for a wonderful way for us to celebrate our 7 years of being married. Sometimes in life, (I'm sure everyone reading can agree), the daily grind of work, kids, obligations, events, doctor appointments, etc, can become overwhelming. The Mission Inn was the ideal way to disconnect, relax, sip wine, and just be. We enjoyed chatting with other guests and the beautiful rooms. We stayed in the San Francisco room and it was unbelievable. The hot tub was awesome and the room was so relaxing. The decor throughout the Inn is amazing. Thank you to Wendy and Laura for being wonderful inn keepers and making us feel at home. Leslie, the food was delicious. Anyone looking for an escape from your busy life, check out the Mission Inn. We had a wonderful time. Thank you!


Excellent!

First visit to this B&B. Great relaxed atmosphere. Laura and Wendy are excellent hosts! Making plans to go back!


The only place to stay in Cape May

My wif e and I have beeen to several bed and breakfasts but there is nothing that compares to the ambiance, the decor, the hospitality, and the all around comfort provided. Laura and Wendy are extremely gracious hosts who go out of the way their to provide for any need you may have. The breakfast is beyond expectations. Snacks, wine, drinks provided. The room Econ is spectacular, unlike anything. New Jersey has to offfer. Along with privacy, each room has a mood enhancing fire place and an amazing in room jacuzzi. Kelly and I wish Laura and Wendy nothing but the best as we plan on only staying at the Mission Inn when we visit the Hersey shore. We consider them friends beyond hosts even though they are wonderful at that as well.


Mission Inn is amazing

Laura, Wendy and staff were wonderful and make each guest feel special


Wonderful Valentine Day Getaway

5 on February 20, 2017

After researching B&Bs in Cape May, we chose the Mission Inn and it was a great choice! The Inn is unique in every way - each room has it's own personality and is hand painted to resemble old California Missions. We felt immediately at home thanks to our host, Laura, who made us feel welcome and like we had known her for years!!! The Inn is located 1 block from the beach and just a few minutes from the Cape May Mall and a great selection of restaurants so the location was great. Breakfast each day was a wonderful surprise as was the assortment of goodies which were put out daily from 4:00-5:30. I would highly recommend the Inn for anyone who is looking for a romantic, relaxing getaway.


One Night Stay

We recommend staying here. We plan to be back ourselves, winter or summer. Even in our short stay, we were welcomed and felt at home. The atmosphere is unique but yet still classic Cape May B&B. The hors d'oeuvres and drinks were delicious and, the breakfast was delectable and well presented. We miss the warmth already. Thank you Mission Inn!
