We have previously stayed at several other Cape May inns including the Queen Victoria, the Rhythm of the Sea, the Carroll Villa and the “former” John F. Craig House.... More

We have been traveling to Cape May every year for the past 15 years. This was by far the best, most comfortable B&B we have ever visited. The rooms are beautiful. The food is fantastic and the inn keepers are the most thoughtful people we have had the pleasure to meet. You must book your next stay to Cape May... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Raymond & Susan and given a tour of the grounds which mirrored a revitalized Spanish-style inn, painted walls, wood decor, ample light and comfort. Mid-day appetizers were a... More

Susan welcomed us home upon arrival, and staying at The Mission Inn conveys that plus so much more given the inspirational decor, creative breakfasts, and wonderful warmth of our valued hosts. Our repeat visits are never long nor frequent enough, but remain a great get away from busy schedules. Always looking for next time.
