About

The Bedford Inn is well-located in the center of the historic district just a short block from the beach and near many fine restaurants and shops. The Bedford is open all year round and provides the setting for the perfect romantic escape no matter what the season. The inn was built in 1883 by a wealthy stock broker from Philadelphia named Joseph F. Page. It was built as a side by side, mother-daughter twin home. On January 25, 2014, a fire caused significant damage to the structure. It has been completely renovated and all 11 rooms and bathrooms have a fresh new look and feel. The dining room and parlor are accented with beautiful hand painted murals that depict different scenes taken from Cape May's history. You are sure to feel right at home with warmth and hospitality of your host, Archie.

About the innkeepers

I tell people I am simply an expert guest. We started coming to Cape May in the early 1990's and fell in love with the town of Cape May. Over the course of the next several years we stayed at more Cape May B&B's probably than any other innkeepers here. When we would come on weekends we would say, "boy I wish we didn't have to go home." So one day we woke up in Cape May and we were home.
