Bed & Breakfast Inns

Cape May’s B&Bs are upscale accommodations, most located in historic Victorian houses. They offer either a seated or continental breakfast and the convenience of an on-site innkeeper to help with the details of your visit.

Select B&Bs also offer an afternoon tea. Some are decorated with period antiques and furniture, while others are fully modernized for the contemporary traveller. Cape May’s bed and breakfast inns are air conditioned and offer private baths. They’re an ideal choice for couples, weekend getaways with friends, and families with well-behaved children.
