“Nice B&B Just Off the Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2011

My wife and I greatly enjoyed the Mooring B&B, mostly because it was just a little bit off the beach and its bustle. The house itself is exactly what you would expect of a Cape May B&B. And the innkeeper was very helpful. Can't say enough about the caramel French toast!

My wife and I have just returned from our July respite at The Mooring. Let me start off by saying, “It is very hard to say exactly what’s BEST about Vince and Leslie”, only because they do so many good things right. With their attention to detail, they do an excellent job of running this B&B. A stop over at The Mooring certainly has to be at the top of any one’s… ”Must Stay While in Cape May” list…. that is anyone who knows anything about Cape May B&Bs.
The original purpose of The Mooring was as a Guest House. The ambience of the relaxed and refreshing B&B atmosphere that Vince and Leslie provide is reminiscent of those days of old. This, combined with a go out of their way attitude to ensure guest satisfaction, makes The Mooring a special experience. It is certainly one that we look forward to and enjoy as much as possible. So without getting into too much more detail, go experience The Mooring Guest House for yourself, and I’ll let Leslie and Vince do what they do best, everything.

Room Tip: Room #8 or #10 on the second floor has a semi private (just for those two rooms) balcony to enjoy th...

The Mooring is a better than average B&B with hosts who are very friendly and welcoming. Our 2nd floor room (#10) was beautifully appointed and had a shared outdoor porch with a partial ocean view. The window AC unit was undersized for the room and had difficulty keeping the entire room cool. The bathroom was very small and also very hot since it was on the opposite side of the room from the AC unit. Needless to say, if the weather was a bit cooler this would not have been an issue. The breakfasts were very good but not exceptional. Two standouts were the Greek Yogurt which is served daily and the blueberry french toast. Vince, one of the owners is very friendly and is often seen around the B&B. He is very happy to recommend a restaurant for dinner or just stop and chat for a few minutes. Although we enjoyed our stay at The Mooring, there are so many other wonderful B&B's in Cape May from which to choose that our next visit may include one of those.

Fantastic in every regard! Clean, comfortable and a great location. In addition, Vince, one of the owners, is a very warm, thoughtful and caring host. No question. We will definitely return here.

As usual, Leslie and Vince were the consummate hosts. We loved our stay in Room 10, which is beautiful, cozy, and romantic. We loved the new mattress and carpeting. In addition to the terrific breakfasts, both savory and sweet, the wine and cheese tasting on Saturday was great. We always look forward to our stays at the Mooring, and can't wait till the next one!
