I have been going to Cape May since I was a baby and know the area well. I wanted to try a new place and decided to stay at The Harrison. I was blown away by how beautiful it was! The building is historic and the owners did a fabulous job of preserving the integrity of the building while updating...

We had not been to Cape May in years and were looking for a romantic weekend getaway. We chose the Harrison after viewing the gorgeous rooms on its website (and the reviews of the delicious breakfasts.) Everything lived up to the reviews. While the weather didn't cooperate (it was the coldest we'd had all season - not ideal for walking...

An unusually warm forecast prompted us to take a quick trip to Cape May in February. We hadn't been in quite a while, and chose the Harrison simply because of its excellent location. What a lucky choice! The house was beautiful, with recently renovated rooms and bathrooms. The innkeepers Vicky and Andrea were fabulous and owners Andrew and Kelly made...

From the moment we pulled up, we knew we were in for a great experience. The Harrison is teeming with charm and character, tastefully and stylishly decorated and very well appointed. Our hosts only enhanced the experience. Welcoming and delightful. We couldn't have been happier with our accommodations! We're planning another visit in the near future.

Went up to celebrate my 40th birthday and visit with friends. It was a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday! Loved meeting the owner and learning about the place. Fantastic facilities (remarkable sheets), lovely breakfast choices, and great location...Highly recommended for a romantic weekend/week away in Cape May!

My bride and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit The Harrison and we were totally impressed. Although it was only a one night stay the memories will linger. From our arrival when Vicki greeted us (what a sweet and engaging innkeeper) to our perfectly prepared room (we stayed in the Atlantic room in the newly acquired and renovated Pharo)...

My wife and I had that rare chance to get away for the weekend so we decided on The Harrison after viewing their website. The B&B looked just as good in person and the hospitality was the icing on the cake. We stayed in their recent extension "The Pharos" and it had all the charm of their main B&B. Breakfast...
