The Luther Ogden Inn is located on a quiet street the perfect walking distance from downtown, but far enough away that at night you only hear the crickets! The front porch is gorgeous, there is a cute outdoor shower, and ample parking in the back. This place puts the breakfast in Bed and Breakfast! You will not go hungry in... More

I stayed at the Luther Ogden Inn for one night in July. There was no place to lock up my bike, but the room was nicely sized and well furnished. The television was very old, but the shower was large. A little weird having the sink in the bedroom instead of the bathroom, but it worked out nicely. Also, you... More

Two night stay this month. Room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was superb. Located two blocks from beach - one can easily hear the ocean from the lovely porch. Also very well located for walking to restaurants and shopping. Plenty of private parking.

My husband and I needed a few days "away" to clear our heads. We had a wonderful stay at the Luther Ogden Inn. Our room (#1) was small, but plenty of space for our needs.

Thanks so much for the 5 star review and all the nice things you wrote. I think our block on Kearney Ave. is one of the prettiest in Cape May. Even in the middle of summer or in the midst of a busy holiday weekend, it is still quiet and relaxing here. I take great pride in my breakfasts...so glad... More
