We stayed one night arriving late afternoon to this gorgeous beautifully restored and renovated victorian masterpiece. Our room was #4 on the second floor of the house which made it a challenge for hauling luggage. no elevator, no assistance available. Be advised there are first floor rooms available in a newer wing. The entire property was immaculate. Landscaping and flower...

While our stay started off a little rocky, it turned out to be awesome thanks to Kira! We made reservations 2 months in advance, asking if it was wheelchair accessible. We were told yes, that there was only 1 little step into the front door and then another small step down into the dining area. Wrong! There were 4 steps...

I first saw The Southern Mansion as it was being renovated in the 90's and thought it was a magical place. With a special offer, I finally got to stay there. While very pleasing, it just it could not live up to all the previous hype I had assigned to it. Don't get me wrong, it is still a great...

Perfect location to bike or walk anywhere around Cape May. Staff were all extremely helpful with directions for specialty shops, restaurants. Great place to stay in Cape May. Rooms are huge with plenty of room to lounge around and read without having to sit on the bed. Public areas are beautiful and welcoming.

I read several negative reviews that almost scared me away from this place. Rest assured, our visit was excellent. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. From the moment we made a reservation, to the follow up call from Ken to check on our ETA, to the list of local restaurants they provided, we couldn't be more pleased at the...

This place is amazing! What started off as a rocky arrival turned into a weekend to remember. I'm in a wheelchair temporarily unable to walk. When we reserved the room in January we explained this to the woman. She advised us that there was only one step into the B&B, and one step down into the dining area. There were...

We got the last room in the mansion on presidents weekend. What a great find! Ken and the young lady at the front desk were super nice and hopefully with suggestions. Breakfast has many choices including hot breakfast from a menu and individual tables so you don't have to make awkward conversation with strangers. The only downside for us was...

This B&B was our number place to go. The breakfast is wonderful, the staff is great & the rooms are clean. Quite a lot was done to upgrade this place. The problem is that it's not being care for. We noticed that in the halls on the first floor that the flooring is starting to buckle & turn black against...
