This is the only B&B in Cape May that my wife and I stay at for our once or twice a year visits. On the recommendation of Bonnie, the Innkeeper, we tried Christmas time (for the first time) and were not disappointed. The entire town was decked out in Christmas lights and we greatly enjoyed the Candlelight Home Tours which...

An absolutely wonderful old charming Victorian Inn within the first block from the beach. The Inn is decorated to the Victorian period and every room is a historical adventure in beautiful. Breakfast is a culinary delight - waffles or pancakes, bacon or sausage, fruit, juice, coffee, tea and more... Lance and Bonnie are the perfect hosts. A must stay!

John Wesley is a lovingly maintained Stockton Cottage in the heart of the historic district. The location is perfect- everything within old Cape May is within easy walking distance: Beach, walking tours of the historic areas, Washington Mall (pedestrian shopping street), and restaurants. The owners, Bonnie and Lance, operate the Inn on premises, and personify hospitality- including being up and...

This was the first time my wife and I stayed at the John Wesley Inn, and it was wonderful! We stayed in the Mt.Vernon room on the third floor, and it was very clean, nicely decorated, and the bed was extremely comfortable! We really enjoyed talking to our host, Bonnie, and loved the delicious breakfasts that she served every morning....
