We went to Elaine's to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. When I called to book a room, the person I spoke with was extremely helpful in describing the rooms and what each room had to offer. When we arrived, we were amazed at how beautiful our room was. There were photos on the website, but the room was even nicer...

I read the reviews before attending, but what happened? ....very disappointing. First of all they should of left it at Scrooge, it changed to Werewolf of London or something....ugh....very disappointed. Who picked that for a New Years Eve show? Food was just OK, wine was cheap and terrible, as was the champagne. Everyone took a small nap during the show,...

Two couples getaway to Cape May. First stay at Elaine's. Rooms were quaint, comfortable and enjoyable. Staff VERY friendly and welcoming. Delicious breakfast (included) and dinner as part of the "Scrooge" production. "Scrooge" had us belly laughing the entire time. Totally fun and entertaining. Highly recommend. Thanks to all who made a great New Years so wonderful!

The Christmas decorations are gorgeous. There were times we were the only ones on Washington Mall but all the shops and restaurants were open...

We spent Thanksgiving at Elaine's and had a great time. The building was originally built in the 1860s but has been upgraded as you can imagine. The staff was warm and very laid back (although efficient enough.) The room was large and well appointed, although not quite at the "theme park" level you see in come B&Bs, and the breakfast,...

A very nice bed & breakfast. They have excellent food too. Their Dinner theater is a bonus. This is a great location to park your car and walk the town. Close by to Washington Street Mall. Just a couple of blocks from the beach.

The atmosphere of this quaint bed and breakfast was just what we were looking for on a weekend during the fall. My husband took me here to enjoy a quiet room, great food, dinner theater, shopping and greater Cape May. The owners were very personable, accommodating and hands on the entire stay. The staff was pleasant and friendly too. Our...

Spent the Murder Mystery weekend there for our Anniversay. We had a great time. The food was great, service very accommodating and the murder mystery a lot of fun. Our room was done in Victorian period. The bar was a nice place for a quiet drink. Will do again next year.
