I have been going to cape may for years. But I just found this place. I am usually a sucker for congress hall - which is nice. But this is a relaxing luxury oasis. The feel is more boutique high end inn. No fussy Victorian here. Warm colors. Warm fireplaces (for winter) and warm staff. Laura and Wendy are amazing...

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend at this beautiful and interesting B and B. Our hosts Laura and Wendy were the best. Amenities were very nice; breakfast was yummy. Short walk to the beach and town. We are very much looking forward to a return visit!

We spent a cherished family holiday weekend here and it was wonderful. At first I was a little concerned as I read that the owners were very new and one of the reasons we selected this inn many months ago was because of the reviews and owners. We had 3 rooms on the second floor, all were decorated with careful...

For those reading this who have never had the pleasure of staying at The Mission Inn, book a room immediately. I have been to several B&B's in town and around the Northeast since the late 90's and The Mission Inn is by far my favorite. I have not stayed anywhere else in Cape May since friends of mine recommended it...

Once again, our annual visit to the Mission Inn was a great success and a wonderful way to start off the Christmas Season. Although we were quite surprised, and a little sad, to hear that our friends of many years, Susan and Ray, had sold the Inn, it became very evident to us that they had chosen new owners who...

This was my family's second time visiting the Mission Inn (together) and while we were sad that Susan and Ray had moved on, we were delighted to find the most perfect new innkeepers. Laura and Wendy are hostess' with the mostest! They are warm, welcoming, friendly and even hung out with us and shared some laughs. Leslie's breakfasts continue to...

We have been going to the Mission Inn since our honeymoon in 2005. It is by far the best place I have ever laid my head on a pillow. A picture perfect place, a gourmet breakfast and afternoon refreshments, a refrigerator stocked with craft beers and owners and staff that see to your every need. New owners Wendy and Laura...

This by far the BEST B&B experience!! My husband and I arrived for a little Holiday getaway and were thrilled to be pampered by Laura, the innkeeper. We all know there are special people in the world, and we were fortunate enough to have met her. This was our second visit to The Mission Inn and we loved it even...

What can I say about the Mission Inn that hasn't already been said. We have been staying here 3 or 4 times per year for the past 11 years. Imagine our concern when the day before Thanksgiving, Raymond and Susan called to tell us there were new Innkeepers. Well, with heavy hearts we traveled to Cape May on Thanksgiving for...

Laura and Wendy are the new owners of this renown Bed and Breakfast! Their friendliness was so welcomed! They want their guests to feel at home!

In 2013, 2014 and 2015 The Mission Inn Ranked as high as #3 Bed and Breakfasts in the USA according to TripAdvisor's #travelersChoice awards, as well as a top 17th ranking globally for Inns worldwide in 2015. The Mission Inn Bed and Breakfast is not your typical Cape May B&B. Susan Babineau-Roberts and her husband Raymond Roberts cordially invite you to experience the charm of their California Spanish Mission Style Bed and Breakfast. You will find The Mission Inn guest rooms to be bright, airy, tastefully decorated, creative restful place for the weary traveler as was the purpose of the original twenty-one (21) California missions.Each guest room was themed after one of the missions, using colors and designs Susan had observed on her trip. The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth of the missions. Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented. Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so noticeable at the Inn.Book one of our 8 Rooms before they fill up! We are an Inn for all seasons and open all year round. Call today to experience the Mission Inn today! ... more   less
