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!

The staff made us feel so welcome and catered to our specific (difficult) dietary requirements. The room was elegant and gorgeous, and we were super comfortable there. It is located is an ideal place in Cape May, where we could walk to just about everything we needed. We will be back!

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!
