Just came home and miss my stay already. The accommodations were perfect. The breakfast on the porch was most enjoyable. The Staff and Owners go out of their way in friendliness and service. Can't say enough nice things about the Inn. In fast we are coming back in 2016. Thank you so much Carrie & Andy for a great memory - Also your delightful staff who are very courteous and kind.

A memorable weekend

5 on April 12, 2015

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary weekend at the Victorian Lace Inn. We stayed in the Bantyy Cottage. It was an outstanding experience! The cottage was wonderfully decorated. The breakfast was very delicious and homemade. It was different both mornings. It was served in a lovely dinning room with and other couple. We enjoyed the morning conversations and friendly atmosphere. Freshly baked cookies awaited us in the afternoon. The owners Andy and Carrie were very friendly and knowledgeable of Cape May. They made our stay memorable. Carrie went the extra mile to get us better directions than the GPS and found me a couple of recipes. The only complaint is that our memorable stay ended to quickly. We want to visit again. We highly recommend the Victorian Lace Inn.

Victorian Lace Inn with CLASS

I spent a Summer long weekend here with my GF and her daughter during summer of 2014 and then took my GF here as a Christmas gift in Jan 2015. The owners and the young lady (Kristen) who runs the Inn could not have been more gracious. I would highly recommend this B&B. The house is very beautiful and well kept. In a word this B&B for me was exceptional.

Will Make Yearly Visits

My husband, 12 year old twin daughters and our dog decided to visit Cape May during Christmas week and what a wonderful time we had staying in the Bantry Cottage at the Victorian Lace Inn. Fitting in with the Victorian theme the Inn itself was was beautifully decorated. Carrie and Andy (and Kristin too) were so welcoming and we were so relaxed. The cottage met our needs perfectly and the meals were fabulous! We loved it so much we have already booked again for the summer!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for your review. We really enjoyed having you with us. Andy especially loved your chats at breakfast. We all look forward to seeing you this summer.

Most enjoyable stay!

Our August 2013 visit to Victorian Lace Inn was exceptional. We had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast so when we noticed that the Victorian Lace Inn had 2 designated pet friendly rooms we decided to try it out. Wow! Fantastic! Awesome. Even though the Inn has 2 designated pet friendly rooms they have several other beautiful suites. Our accommodation was perfect, with a private entrance and a separate, fenced in patio. Perfect, perfect, perfect. The room was very clean with a king size bed, sitting area, kitchenette, fireplace and all the amenities listed on their website. When we arrived we immediately felt like family. We arrived a little bit earlier than the arrival time of 2:00 p.m., however, Carrie (owner) and her staff quickly finished preparing the suite and within 30 minutes we were settled in. The staff couldn’t have been nicer. Each morning we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast served on the veranda. The food was most enjoyable, as was the mid-afternoon treat. Carrie and her husband, Andy, greet everyone at breakfast. For them it is important that everyone enjoyed their breakfast, their stay and Cape May. Victorian Lace Inn also provided beach towels and chairs for our convenience, which was extremely helpful on the days that we spent time on the beach. When we left, to return home, it was like leaving the home of a well-loved relative. Our dog, Suzy, also, enjoyed her visit. She was on her best behavior and remembered the rules. We all had a wonderful time and we look forward to our next visit to the Victorian Lace Inn. We would highly recommend Victorian Lace Inn when you stay in Cape May, NJ.

Beautiful home, owners are warm and welcoming, wonderful breakfast. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it to our family and friends.

Worth it for the breakfast alone....

We loved our stay there, especially the wonderful breakfasts! We just had to buy the Inn's cookbook..... It was nice to come back after sightseeing and be welcomed by the tea and freshly baked cookies. Owners and staff very attentive to detail, and very responsive to questions, etc. We stayed in the Cork Suite, which was just right for the 5 of us. We would stay there again. Andrea

Bed and Breakfast was better than orignally imagined

5 on January 02, 2013

We visited the Victorian Lace Inn on the weekend of 10/5/12. My wife and I never had the opportunity to go on our Honeymoon after we were married. So when we have the funds, and a chance to have my parents watch the kids, we go away for the weekend.. Needless to say, my wife’s requests and the places to stay were limited. I was so fortunate to find the Victorian Lace Inn. It had the best of both worlds. Bed and Breakfast atmosphere and the suite I chose were immaculate. I make a modest living and staying at the Victorian Lace Inn made me feel like I was high class. The Victorian Lace Inn’s owners were very friendly and knowledgeable of “things to do” that were tailored to our taste while in Cape May. Speaking of taste, the breakfast was amazingly gourmet! I have never had breakfast that was so refreshing and delicious. The cookies and afternoon snacks were not only perfect, but made me want to spend the day on the porch doing nothing! I liked how the owners made us feel like family guests rather than “guests/consumers”. They made my 8 month pregnant wife very comfortable and sent us on our way with a great experience. This year was, by far, the best weekend we have had in a long time, and staying at the Victorian Lace Inn was a HUGE contributor to this successful weekend. The only “CON” to the weekend was we made plans in Cape May and “had to” leave our Suite to tour Cape May and go to the events that I had originally planned. I wish we could have stayed at the Victorian Lace Inn just a day or so longer so that we could take advantage of just relaxing in the suite’s amenities and the company of the Victorian Lace Inn’s owners and guests.

A nice place to stay. Try them!

I spent 2 nights here towards the end of Oct, before hurricane Sandy. They said they had a kitchenette in our room. I was pleasantly surprised at the size of the kitchenette. Not only was there a full size refrig but a small stove and oven. The wrap around pourch was beautiful not only downstairs but we had a private one ! One of the fireplaces was not working when we stayed but the other one was nice after a cold walk on the beach. Mvery nice inn keeper. I would stay again!,,,,

Another Great Vacation at the Victorian Lace Inn

5 on August 27, 2012

My husband and I have spent several wonderful Cape May vacations at the Victorian Lace Inn. We prefer the friendly and hospitable atmosphere of a B&B vacation stay over traditional hotel/motel accommodations. The Victorian Lace Inn is a definite favorite of ours as Carrie and Andy make every stay memorable. This year we stayed in the Cork Suite which we highly recommend! The breakfasts are delicious! We especially enjoy the friendly staff and have had many wonderful relaxed conversations with guests and staff on the beautiful front porch. The location is excellent, only one block from the beach but quiet even on summer evenings. We will definitely return for our next Cape May vacation.
