We visited The Mission Inn in Cape May in early October and were very pleased with our stay. The location is about one block from the beach and within easy walking distance of most of the interesting parts of the downtown. The owners are real professionals and tend to your every need. We were on the second floor and it...

Spent a mid-April weekend here. Rooms are lovely, breakfast was excellent, hosts were charming and friendly. It's kind of pricey, but for a special occasion it's worth it. The common areas have comfortable furniture, in good weather breakfast is served outside. There are beverages and snack available in the afternoon, the beach is close by and bicycles are provided. (Really...

My wife and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary at the Mission Inn. We have two young children so getting out is a pretty big deal. We've stayed at another B&B a few years ago, which was also very nice - but Susan is the real different maker. Susan is over accommodating for every need that you have. You want...

Happy, good attitude and so willing to take suggestions and...

"Welcome home!" say innkeepers Susan and Ray, and the phrase is apt: guests feel welcome, and the inn feels like home. Our first visit was no fluke; we decompressed from the pressures of daily life more quickly here than any other vacation destination. It's inevitable, given Susan's and Ray's constant attention to their guests' needs and desires. Even when they...

We stayed the last weekend of June and it was lovely. Susan and Ray go out their way to make us feel special and pampered. They made me fabulous gluten free breakfasts. The afternoon appetizers were so delicious- asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, crab dip with gluten free crackers, chicken and more. It's certainly not your ordinary spread. Our bed was...

The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth of the missions. Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented. Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so noticeable at the Inn.Book one of our 8 Rooms before they fill up! We are an Inn for all seasons and open all year round. Call today to experience the Mission Inn today! ... more   less
