Henry Sawyer Inn
Ranked #24 of 40 Cape May B&B and Inns
Reviewed 7 August 2011

The Henry Sawyer Inn is a lovely small bed and breakfast in the historic district of Cape May, NJ. We have been here many times and have always had a great time. The owner, Barbara, is very cordial and accomodating, especially to our kosher food needs. We love staying in the first floor room just off the dining room (we are up early riding bikes!!!) with its beautiful antiques and its own entrance and private veranda. It is wonderful to sit on the veranda and relax while the horse and carriages go past the house. Barbara puts out a lovely afternoon tea which includes cold drinks, wine, fruit, snacks and home made baked goods. She puts it out early at 1:00pm and leaves it until 6:00pm. She serves a lovely breakfast that includes a fruit and yogurt parfait, a choice of an entree, along with fresh fruit and home made baked goods. The inn is centrally located making it an easy walk to restaurants, the pedestrian mall and the beach (umbrellas and chairs are provided). It is fun to bring or rent bikes to ride around town and on the board walk in the morning. You can even ride your bikes out to sunset beach to catch a beautiful sunset over the water which is unusual on the east coast!!!

I would highly recommend The Henry Sawyer Inn. We went down for a quick weekend away with our 2 teenage children. It was a very relaxing weekend and a lovely stay. The home is charming and very well cared for. We stayed in the suite and the kids loved it because they each had their own beds which never happens when going away. There is a trundle bed on one side and a King bed on the other. Very comfortable. The Inn was very clean and our room was cleaned unknowingly while we were at breakfast. The breakfast was Delicious! and there was plenty of healthy, delicious food to start off our day.

Barbara, the inn keeper was very professional yet very warm and hospitable. She was extremely helpful anytime we needed something or had a question about the town.

I would definitely go back to Cape May and stay at The Henry Sawyer Inn!

My daughter and I have been staying at the Henry Sawyer Inn since 2001. We were new to Cape May, and once we found this treasure, we didn't want to stay anywhere else. We may have stayed at a few other places in town when the Henry Sawyer couldn't accomodate us, but it's always our first choice. The Inn is spotless, I don't care what anyone else writes. Trust me, I have been there in spring, summer, fall and for the holidays, and it's always well staffed and organized. You are treated very special here...and as far as the food goes, it is home made, well prepared by a trio of very seasoned and very capable people, and if you have a problem with no meat for breakfast, I suggest you go get your meat fix at the Pancake House. But you won't be treated as splendidly as you will be at the Henry Sawyer. If you can't be satisfied with homemade french toast, lemon pancakes and yogurt parfaits with fruit and homemade breads, pastries and cookies, and fresh coffee for breakfast, then stay in a motel. Not to mention, "tea", the afternoon treats common to B&B's, is served pretty much all afternoon....nuts, crackers, granola bars, homemade cookies and cakes, popcorn, teas, coffee, and wine. A relaxing large porch with rockers and comfortable furniture with overhead fans to enjoy your wine and tea by. There are beach chairs and umbrellas, you can walk to the beach. You can walk to the Washington St. Mall area. The rooms are filled with historic antiques and beautiful decor. Each one has its own bathroom, there are tvs, and free wifi. The staff, I cannot say enough about. Nina and Nicolai have been with the Inn for years, they are parents and residents of Cape May year round, and they both have a second job in restaurants. They work hard, and keep that Inn pristine. Barbara and Mary Morris, the innkeepers, are the best at what they do. They make sure you are satisfied and comfortable. They are both lovely, and have become dear friends. Barbara works very diligently to provide the best for the guests, and Mary is well known for her hospitality. It is quiet, it is peaceful, comfortable and very, very clean.

Room Tip: One room has a hot/tub. Nice.

We loved the home, location, morning breakfasts and the hospitality of owner Barbara and her staff. Special care was taken every morning as Barbara prepared a wonderful and healthy breakfast, and the coffee was great. We spent countless hours on the homes porch enjoying wine, champagne and a fine cigar. My sister and her husband have been in Cape May on many occassions and were very happy with the Inn. We will return and recommend the Henry Sawyer. Dor, Mary, John and Ed

My daughter and I have stayed here many times through the years. Barbara and Mary are great people and will make you feel at home. The B&B is very clean and well taken care of. The location is also great because its centrally located betwen Washington Street Mall and the beach. The B&B has chairs,umbrella and towels for the beach.
