Our family has been staying at Pharos every summer for over 10 years. We had tried other B&B's in Cape May before lucking into this one. If you are looking for stuffy and formal this is NOT the place for you. Our adult children now join us there for a few days - it's wonderful that they don't have to...

Such a wonderful place to stay. The owners were absolutely wonderful. They made me feel right at home. My room was very clean and cozy. The breakfast that was served was fresh and delicious. I absolutely will be back there the next time I visit Cape May.

Spent the weekend here, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Walt & Pat were great hosts, and our room was clean and comfortable. The Inn is very centrally located in Cape May - and walking distance to most attractions, shopping, restaurants and to the beach. Really hope to return on future visits.

Wonderful bed-and-breakfast. Walt makes a great cup of coffee. Breakfast was fantastic. All in all a wonderful visit. The rooms are very convenient. Each has a bathroom. This B&B is very close to the ocean... Close enough to walk. It is also conveniently located near wonderful shops.

My husband and I stayed here during the holiday festivities one weekend in December. Ski and his wife were so sweet and welcoming. Such a cute place and it was decorated just perfectly for the holiday season. It was not only very nice, but quite reasonable in comparison to the other B&B's in town. We will definitely be staying here...

Walt (Ski) and Pat were great hosts. We were greeted at the door by Ski who had a wealth of knowledge of the area and spent quite a while talking with us and making us feel comfortable. It was a nice welcome. Pat talked with us in the morning while Ski made his own brand of coffee, which was delicious....

Great breakfast. Helpful owners - helped us with our bikes even though we arrived late in evening. Comfortable room with lots of natural light. Great laid back attitude. Close to beach, promenade, and shopping.

Walt and Pat were wonderful hosts and made us feel like family. We were unfamiliar with the area and their recommendations were perfect. Being the third generation to own the home, their pride in the home and Cape May shone through. The rockers on the front porch and fresh coffee in the morning was a beautiful start to the day....

We had the pleasure of staying at Pharos this past weekend by chance. We were told by another B&B that children were not allowed. Pat and Walt (Ski) took us in and we were blown away by their hospitality. Great rooms, delicious food, wonderful conversation. Thank you so much for a great stay.
