I read several negative reviews that almost scared me away from this place. Rest assured, our visit was excellent. The staff was very accommodating and helpful. From the moment we made a reservation, to the follow up call from Ken to check on our ETA, to the list of local restaurants they provided, we couldn't be more pleased at the...

This place is amazing! What started off as a rocky arrival turned into a weekend to remember. I'm in a wheelchair temporarily unable to walk. When we reserved the room in January we explained this to the woman. She advised us that there was only one step into the B&B, and one step down into the dining area. There were...

We got the last room in the mansion on presidents weekend. What a great find! Ken and the young lady at the front desk were super nice and hopefully with suggestions. Breakfast has many choices including hot breakfast from a menu and individual tables so you don't have to make awkward conversation with strangers. The only downside for us was...

This B&B was our number place to go. The breakfast is wonderful, the staff is great & the rooms are clean. Quite a lot was done to upgrade this place. The problem is that it's not being care for. We noticed that in the halls on the first floor that the flooring is starting to buckle & turn black against...

Sometimes It's worth it, just drop everything and go. The Southern Mansion is the place we chose. It has the charm and ambiance. The staff is friendly and your morning starts with a wonderful continental breakfast. There are even a few extra food offerings on the menu. Our room was large (King bed) on the third floor. There are no...

My wife and I took the ferry to Cape May on which we were married 20 years ago, August 29th, and spent the night in Cape May at the Southern Mansion. What a delight! From the friendly and very helpful staff, to the lush Victorian boudoir room, to the outstanding choices at breakfast, we could not have wanted more, except...

A charming spot for a special occasion, we spent our anniversary in Cape May at this lovely place. The room was spotless and very comfortable with a nice modern bathroom. We really appreciated the outside shower room when we came back from the beautiful beach which was just a few blocks away. They provide beach chairs and towels and we...

Charming property with very large rooms. The bathroom has a very large shower and toilet. The sink is in the bedroom which I didn't love. Breakfast was included and was excellent. The location was great so we walked to town and the beach. Great porch.
