Statyed at Peter Shields just after Christmas a year ago. Our room was great which offered a side view of the ocean. The breakfast were amazing. The staff were delightful and helpful. We enjoyed our stay so much that we are returning in April for a few days.

The oceanfront room was lovely! We had a fabulous gourmet dinner that was first class from start to finish! During dinner, they even had a turndown room service. The... More

We got married on a Saturday and wanted to have a "mini moon"for a few nights prior to heading back to work. PSI was perfect with great service, friendly staff, and food that blew us away. We couldn't have found a more romantic environment to begin our life together. The only part we didn't find delightful was when we had... More

The staff, food and accommodations were excellent. Could not have asked for a better weekend. I did not want to leave😄. Would highly recommend this Inn to anyone. Will be returning soon. Parking was easy. Great beach access. Loved relaxing on the rockers on the front porch. Cannot forget the complimentary breakfasts every morning.

This is the best restaurant in Cape May. I have been to all of them. The view, the inn, the meal, the service are all top-shelf. Order anything, you will not be disappointed. And enjoy the Cape May wines.
