We have been coming here since it first opened since the early 90s. Our daughter grew up coming here with us and it is still a magical place. We do however miss the afternoon tea and the dinners they use to have back in the day. Breakfast is still amazing. We recently stayed this past Thursday to Friday. Stayed in...

Working through our bucket list, it was time to visit Cape May. There were so many choices of places to stay. We were lucky to pick the perfect one. The Southern Mansion was a wonderful choice. Our room was beautiful, the staff was excellent & breakfast was delicious. It is very well located (unless you want time at the beach)....

The staff were helpful and eager to share information about the historic property. I felt like I was back in time when details really mattered. The decor was amazing. Very elegant. I really enjoyed my time at the mansion. It was a nice getaway to be alone with my husband and no kids. Nice, quiet and relaxing. The breakfast was...

We enjoyed the long Labor Day weekend at the Southern Mansion. Our room on the third floor was spacious and comfortable. This is a very old house, so the furniture fits that period, but is comfortable. The bathroom was a little small with the sink out in the actual room, but this is also normal in older buildings like Southern...

Cannot say enough about the King Premier room with Beautiful Ornate Crown Moldings and Rich Decor that looks like a Designers Dream! Delicious and different breakfast every morning: homemade french toast, pancakes, omelots, muffins, yougurt, granola, and fresh fruit. Staff is wonderful and kind to everyone. Andrea, Denise and Rita are personable, friendly and professional all the time!! We are...

I agree with windjammer2000 (below) as we ironically were there the same time (8/24-26)... we really enjoyed our stay. The staff is very accomodating. We were originally in room 12 and found the A frame sleeping loft above a bit confining and the fact Im clutzy and kept hitting my head getting in/out of bed was no fun...although staff moved...

August 24 -27 was intermittently rainy and stormy. But our stay of the Southern Mansion was warm and pleasant. Located a short walk (5 minutes) from center town and about 10 minutes from the beach this is a delightful place to stay a couple days or more. The mansion and rooms are spacious, You are not confined by your room...

A very good B&B. Quiet and relaxing. There was not a wedding or other large activity during our stay, so that may be a factor. Convenient walk to Cape May restaurants, shopping and downtown attractions (e.g., carriage and trolley rides). The beach is a little further but still not a bad walk. Very good service (rooms and breakfast). The general...
