I recently had my wedding ceremony and reception at Peter Shields and stayed the weekend with my husband, family and friends and it was absolutely perfect! Everything from the first time I corresponded with the event coordinator, Amy, to our wedding day and through our 3 day stay was fabulous! I can not say enough about the staff, service, food,...

There is not even much constructive criticism I could send to PSI. The staff was more than helpful and accommodating. I forgot my toothbrush and they had one for me in a cute little travel bag with a toothpaste as well. Breakfast had several choices, all very tasty. The hospitality room had coffee, tea, soft drinks, cookies, snack bags, and... More

Excellent place with well appointed rooms. We stayed in one with a balcony & a fireplace. Delicious food in the restaurant. Full complimentary breakfast with many options to choose. Good location which is very walkable to many sites. We will return next year!

Had an AMAZING Experience at their restaurant. Fantastic service, delicious food, and romantic atmosphere. We were seated next to a fireplace and enjoyed the specials that night. Will definitely visit there again. MAKE A RESERVATION P.s. We’re excited to eat in the patio come summer!

Beautiful inn and restaurant. Stayed for two nights in two different rooms- both lovely- just a bit drafty due to cold winds. The extra conveniences of snack room, wine and cheese and friendly staff made the visit even more pleasurable. Wish that it had been warmer to enjoy the porches and other amenities such as bikes and beach. Had a... More

My stay at Peter Shield's Inn was all that I expected the B&B experience to be and more! They couldn't have been more accommodating. Snack room available 24/7, complementary breakfast, too! The Inn is wonderfully decorated, each room has it's own heat/AC controls, robes, bikes, beach chairs, TV, WiFi (though being in Cape May, why would you need WiFi) .... More

We absolutely loved staying here for a night. The service was top notch and the "extras" included with the price were a nice surprise. They had a wine and cheese spread set out in a common area for a couple hours in the late afternoon. There was a niche filled with complementary soda/water/juice and small snacks available anytime. The breakfast... More
