The Harrison is a B&B located in the Historical District. The excellent staff certainly elevates your experience here. They are extremely helpful and pleasant. Also, the breakfast and tea time adds to a most positive stay with its elegant set up and delicious food. We stayed at the Summer Cottage which is totally renovated with a modern bathroom and spacious...

This was our first time in staying at a B&B and it did not disappoint. The bar has been set very high. From the moment you walk in you feel like royalty. Sinatra and the classics playing throughout, the fireplace going, afternoon tea set, and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. A very clean and modern victorian theme with...

Lovely! We had such a nice time at the Harrison - the staff was so lovely, the breakfast was amazing, and the decor throughout was perfect. Our room was on the smaller side but completely adequate for what we needed. Would absolutely return and recommend to others.

The inn was nice and the location was perfect. The breakfast and service were great. We stayed in room 1867. Room was nicely decorated and good size. However, this room is above the "Private" room, which I believe is the kitchen. So you will be waken by staff preparing for breakfast, talking, etc. So if you are not a heavy...

What we expected. That's why we keep coming back. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cape May.” The interaction of the owners and staff really make it feel like coming home after a trip. Talking with one of the new wait staff, she said she loves coming to work because she is treated so well. That's how the guests are treated.

Went to cape may for a weekend getaway and stayed two nights at the Harrison. From the moment you walk in you are greeted with a warm and knowledgeable staff and in awe of the beautiful decor throughout the main house. We stayed in the second house of The Harrison right next door called The Pharos. The Pharos is still...

I love Cape May! It was an amazing stay. Everyone was so nice and the room was so inviting.... everything we needed. We ran around during the day and lounged by the fireplace at night drinking brandy and playing board games! Breakfast was great....and they even helped with my food limitations!

I strongly recommend taking a couple days to stay here! We stayed here for an early anniversary trip, and cannot wait until we can come back again! It was worth every penny to stay here! The staff made this visit as easy as possible! They also serve gluten free breakfast for those with an allergy, which made the trip even...
