My wife and I get away to the Wilbraham as often as we can whether its for an anniversary or a much needed three day escape from life. The owners and staff cannot do enough for you. The breakfast is always delicious and unique. You need to treat yourself to a Cape May getaway.

Beautiful atmosphere and suites with great perks. We thought we'd use the pool but never got out of the room with the jacuzzi tub and fireplace. Breakfast was fun, the proximity to everything is nice but the best part was the warmth of our hosts. It was great to be greeted the night we arrived by Doug, who was a... More

Off the beaten path, but just a short walk to town and beach. All the quaintness of a true Victorian B&B with the option of having modern conveniences if you choose to stay in one of the "suites" in the new building behind. Doug, Joanne and staff are all very attentive and make you feel like you're part of their... More

We used to stay on Jackson Street when visiting Cape May each year but realized we wanted a bit more quiet this year so I booked suite 206 in the Wilbraham Mansion, which is in the "new" building, right next to CVS, in case you forget something and actually closer for our walk to the light house to observe the...

Booked a suite in the "new" building in the back of the older Victorian part of the building. I've been to Cape May several times. Love the Wilbraham Mansion because it still maintains the Victorian charm of Cape May with modern conveniences. The large Jacuzzi tub is the best and the new rooms have the Victorian décor. We had the... More

I'm very surprised by all the great reviews of this place. I mean, it was fine. Room was fine. Bed was fine. Breakfast was fine. Innkeepers were fine. But for the amount of money I paid for two nights, I expect way more than fine. And by the way, the pool is a joke. I can only imagine what that... More

We have been coming in October for about 10 years and have stayed in both the new and the old houses at the Wilbraham Both are equally charming. We got to use the bedroom fireplace for the first time because it got a little chilly this year. Very cozy! We stayed in 203 this year. Very comfortable king bed and... More

Enjoyed the stay at this charming Bed and Breakfast. Sad to say, there were no ghosts, but It was an excellent location, close to everything. We parked our car and did not use it until we left for home. Doug and Joanne were wonderful hosts, ready to tell the story of the mansion, and a little bit about themselves as... More
