The Mission Inn A 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 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 start 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.

This was our fifth trip to the Mission Inn and we look forward to returning every year! We stayed in the San Buenaventura room. This room has a single person jetted tub and a king size bed. As always The room was immaculate. The breakfast was gourmet and the appetizers and hors d'oeuvres were amazing! The owners of the and make you feel like you're at home. They go above and beyond in helping you to make your stay memorable. No matter what room you stay at at the mission and you can't go wrong can't wait to return!


Mission Incredible

4.8 on October 26, 2016

We spent two nights at the Mission Inn from Oct. 10-12, 2016. What an incredible experience. From Susan and Raymond, our hosts, to the staff, we were treated as family not just guests. All our needs were met from having out rooms tidied up before we finished eating breakfast to getting a nightlight bulb replaced. We were treated to beautiful murals not only in our room but also all common areas. Our room was gorgeous and comfortable; plus we had full climate control. The breakfasts expertly prepared by the chef and absolutely delicious. And what a delight to be able to eat on the veranda our last morning. Hors d'oeuvres were served every afternoon. The Inn is located a bit away from the "downtown" area but in is a nice walk and does provide a quieter venue and a long day of exploring Cape May. Finally, Susan and Raymond are excellent hosts. Both engaging and accommodating, they made our stay relaxing and comfortable in every way. The Mission Inn is a "must do" in Cape May. Frank and Abbie Garbe


The Best in New Jersey

Staying here should be a earned privilege. Beautiful murals in every room and common areas. Exquisite, delicious breakfasts. Parking on site! Great shower facilities and relaxing baths if you choose. Friendly clientele. Bicycles, a fully stocked kitchen area, home made hors d' ouvers & cookies. Best of all, friendly, caring owners Susan & Ray. A truly relaxing and enjoyable experience.


THE BEST!

Susan, Ray and their Staff are the very best. They're more like friends than innkeepers. They're warm, friendly, and can't do enough to make your stay memorable. And the food -- fantastic! We always look forward to our stay and have never been disappointed.


Mission Inn Vacation

The Inn is conveniently located by the beach, near excellent restaurants and the Inn Keepers, Susan and Ray are excellent hosts. Amenities provided (coffee and beverages at any time, snacks and afternoon breaks) contribute to the friendly atmosphere. Would go back again!


Our Favorite B&B

Such a great place to stay. The innkeepers/owners are the most thoughtful couple. The food is fantastic and you are made to fell at home.


A nice getaway...

What a wonderful get away! The owners and the property are just lovely! A nice change of pace from the usual Victorian B&B's in Cape May with it's own distinct Mission character.


30th Birthday Stay

4.6 on September 26, 2016

My boyfriend treated me to a stay at the Mission Inn for my 30th birthday. It was our second time staying here and it was just as wonderful as the first time we stayed last year. Susan and Ray are gracious and attentive hosts and we felt very welcomed during our stay. The rooms themselves are absolutely beautiful and I just love the painted designs on the walls and ceilings. The entire atmosphere is attractive and relaxing and I couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay to celebrate my 30th birthday! As for Cape May itself; the entire town is a wonderful place to visit. There is plenty to do in a laid-back atmosphere all within a short walk or driving distance. We can't wait to return again!
