It all began on our 1st anniversary, while stationed in Oklahoma ... we had our 1st B&B experience and were hooked. 3 continents and 10 states later, we chose to continue this tradition by celebrating our 15th anniversary with Susan & Ray at The Mission Inn - BY FAR the best experience yet! From the personal welcome, to the fun...

As usual, our latest trip to the Mission Inn in Cape May, NJ was fantastic. The food is always great and out of the ordinary. The accommodations are superb and unique in that every room decor is based on one of the missions in California. This is the only B&B we have been to more than once. In fact, we...

This amazing bed and breakfast is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT in every way! There is nothing I would want to be changed. Please do yourself a treat and make a well-deserved reservation. Cape May is such a cute beach town, we have scheduled our family vacation there for 2015.

This past summer our book club decided to select Cape May as our summer trip. Based on a recommendation from friends who had at The Mission Inn, we booked three lovely rooms for our midweek stay. Our trip could not have been more perfect. The elegant gourmet breakfasts, lovely room accommodations, delicious afternoon hors d'oeuvres were all outstanding. Most of...

As everyone else says, the Mission Inn is terrific. Susan thinks of absolutely everything. She was quick to accommodate my needs for a firmer pillow and gluten free, vegetarian food. I was served a delicious gluten free breakfast every morning and some of the hors d'ouevres that were offered every afternoon were labeled gluten free. I always had special crackers...

Probably the nicest innkeepers we have ever met. Our room was ready early and we were able to park at the Inn before checking in and not have to feed the meters. The breakfast was delicious with a great selection of juices and plenty of fresh coffee. Only 1 block from the beach and an easy walk to fine dining....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Recently awarded the 2017 Travelers Choice Award for B&B's & Inns by Trip Advisor as the #1 bed and breakfast in Cape May, NJ (5 years in a row), #3 in the USA, and #11 in the world, The Mission Inn Bed and Breakfast is not your typical Cape May B&B. We invite you to experience the charm of a California Spanish Mission Style Bed and Breakfast just one block from the beach. You will find The Mission Inn guest rooms to be bright, airy, tastefully decorated, creative and restful places for the weary traveler as was the purpose of the original California missions. Each guest room is themed after one of the missions, with artistic murals and accents designed to resemble the original mission. 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. ... more   less
