This was our first time staying at The Mission Inn. We have 2 young kids so getting away isn't always easy, we only had one night to get away and despite the usual 2 night minimum Laura and Wendy let us stay just the one. As we were heading to Cape May for lunch before check in we got a...

You will walk in to a magical enchanting world of murals beyond your imagination! The ambience and hospitality are exhilarating. Two of the most gracious people will greet you and give you "the "tour". My favorite was breakfast. I wasn't sure if I wanted to eat or just stare at my dish. So I took a picture before I ate...

My wife and I spent the night on 3/17 at the Mission Inn. Kathy and Laurie could not have been nicer! The Inn is top notch and the hosts are extremely friendly, accommodating and caring. They made us feel as if we had been friends for years. They welcomed us to their B&B and immediately offered us an upgrade at...

What a pleasure to have met you both. We hope to see you back in Cape May soon. And since Princeton didn't make it out of the first round of the tournament, we will be rooting for UNC to win it all, in honor of our chef Leslie since that's her favorite team. Go Tar Heels! Wendy and Laura

When researching places to stay in Cape May we found the Mission Inn. I was amazed that every reviewer has given this place 5 stars. I admit, I have to give the Mission Inn 5 stars - it definitely deserves it. We checked in for a midweek retreat and couldn't be happier. I have to admit, I was not always...

We had such a wonderful stay at the Mission Inn. My birthday plans fell though and the owners came to the rescue and at the last minute made dinner reservations and recommended a spa and even let us upgrade rooms when when other rooms became available. We could not have had a better time or been more grateful. Such a...

We just completed a weekend stay and met the new owners; it was a pleasure to meet them and to see that they are continuing the service and tradition of the Inn created by the former owners and Ray and Susan who set the standard for a great inn. There is nothing we can add to the excellent reviews already...

My wife planned a surprise weekend away to Cape May, NJ for the weekend before Valentine's Day. We stayed at The Mission Inn. Our room (1 of 8) was the San Francisco (top floor). We arrived on Fri by 3:30 PM, so we were treated to a tour of all the rooms, along with another couple just checking in as...

The Mission Inn is a beautiful and unique building, but the real charm is the friendliness of the owners and guests. You'll love everything about this place, and you'll go home stuffed from the delicious breakfasts and generous afternoon appetizers.

We were surprised when we found the news that Ray and Susan had turned the Inn over to new owners. But we knew they had built a unique atmosphere and couldn't wait to return and see what this change might bring. Laura and Wendy do not disappoint. Their genuine desire to please is so apparent. We visited for 4 midweek...

In 2013, 2014 and 2015 The Mission Inn Ranked as high as #3 Bed and Breakfasts in the USA according to TripAdvisor's #travelersChoice awards, as well as a top 17th ranking globally for Inns worldwide in 2015. The Mission Inn Bed and Breakfast is not your typical Cape May B&B. Susan Babineau-Roberts and her husband Raymond Roberts cordially invite you to experience the charm of their California Spanish Mission Style Bed and Breakfast. You will find The Mission Inn guest rooms to be bright, airy, tastefully decorated, creative restful place for the weary traveler as was the purpose of the original twenty-one (21) California missions.Each guest room was themed after one of the missions, using colors and designs Susan had observed on her trip. The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth of the missions. Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented. Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so noticeable at the Inn.Book one of our 8 Rooms before they fill up! We are an Inn for all seasons and open all year round. Call today to experience the Mission Inn today! ... more   less
