What a wonderful experience. This was our first time in a B&B in Cape May and it set the tone for what I hope was only my first stay at Leith Hall. As an antique and book lover, I was delighted with the authentic period decor Elan and Susan used to conjure a true Victorian atmosphere, to gorgeous effect. They... More

We love seeing that Leith Hall made your first B&B stay in Cape May an enjoyable one. It was our pleasure having you as guests while you soaked in the Victorian atmosphere and explored the town. Your kind words regarding the treats and afternoon tea have both of us smiling -- we hope you'll visit again in the future! Best,... More

Elan and Susan are a lovely couple. Well versed in the goings on in town and knowledgeable in where to eat and places to go. Breakfasts were very good and warm. Goodies at tea were delicious. Good location . Ocean half a block and Washington Mall 2 blocks away.

We're very sorry that you didn't enjoy your visit. I am assuming that you stayed in the Highland Room which was in the Victorian Homes article because that is the only way you could make the mistake that the bedspreads haven't been replaced. If you looked at the room your family members stayed in (also in the article), you would... More

We just returned from a delightful stay at Leith Hall. We loved our room (Empire Room), which was cozy and comfortable. The bathroom was charming, with a very modern multiple-spray shower. Elan and Susan are decorating wonders. Each room contained hand-painted walls and wallpaper appropriate to the room's theme.

I booked this post-Labor Day getaway months prior. I was initially given a room with a SHARED hallway bathroom. When I called and said this was unacceptable, I get up several times at night, I was assigned a new room but at an additional $10/night charge. The bathroom was the size of ones we had on a cruise!

The location is awesome. You are less than half a block from the ocean. That lends itself to the convenience of being on the boardwalk or on the beach yet far enough off the beaten path that it is a peaceful quiet place to stay. The decor is amazing. The walls and ceilings are hand painted. The rooms are filled... More
