The Eldredge House was a perfect place for our first bed and breakfast experience. The oldest b&b in Cape May, it was beautifully decorated and very clean. We stayed in the Captain's Room, which was very spacious with its own private bath, loveseat, TV and DVD player, etc. We knew very little about the Cape May area when we arrived,...

First of all, you will never meet a more gracious host than Todd, the innkeeper at the Eldredge House. Not only does he make himself always available for advice or help around town, he anticipates your needs and goes above and beyond expectation. The house itself was beautiful, clean, and well kept. There is always cold water in the fridge,...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Eldredge House for the first time recently. From the moment we arrived, Todd, the proprietor, was extremely gracious and helpful. He quickly gave us the best directions, the good places to eat and the things we might want to check out during our stay. If we needed anything, he was always available via...

Where to start?! Rooms like an embrace from the past (tons of touchable antiques!) with the perks of the present. Innkeeper of the first degree -- charming, funny, warm, brilliant, a wealth of tips and info. Complete privacy (innkeeper lives in separate section). Breakfast vouchers that let you choose when & where you eat -- yay, variety is the spice...

I can't think of a better place to stay in Cape May, regardless of the time of year! The Eldredge House is cozy, quaint, beautifully-decorated, impeccably-clean, far enough away from the center of town to be quiet and relaxing at night, but close enough to be within walking distance (5-10 minutes) of everything worth seeing, from the beach, to the...

Great! It was my second trip to Cape May. Both times I stayed in Eldredge House. When I called for reservation first time I did not know much about this place. The owner appeared to be very nice and accommodative. When I arrived he offered to pick me up from Transportation Center. I found the house very clean and cozy....

We stayed at the Eldredge House for a week in August and absolutely loved it. It was a pleasure to return each day and evening. There is a very warm, cozy, nicely decorated living room area with snacks and bottles of water you can help yourself to at any time (and we did). We enjoyed spending time there with some...

Beautiful, quaint, house, decorated in country style with colorful and abundant blooms to contemplate seated quietly while you await your roomate. You can hardly tell the house is centuries old, except if you are over 6 foot tall, since the ceilings are a bit low. Todd is like a gentle cousin anxious to please. Pay attention to his recommendations for...

My wife and I needed to getaway on very short notice so we searched the internet quickly and stumbled on the Edredge House. On very short notice, Todd, the Innkeeper, was able to offer us the Captain's Quarters. Since we were only able to get away for a few days, we drove down very early in the day. When the...

The Eldridge House is simply my favorite place to stay in Cape May. Having visited Cape May a few times in the past, I have stayed at other B&B's and The Eldridge House is a notch above. My wife and I really have no desire to stay anywhere else. This is the perfect place to go when you want a...
