Because we had to wait to take a long, exotic honeymooon (due to my husband being a teacher), his parents reserved a room here for a long weekend after our wedding for a "mini honeymoon." We had such a fabulous time. The service is outstanding, the view is incredible, and overall it was such a relaxing trip, which is exactly... More

We were treated like family from the moment we walked in. Renovated rooms, outstanding breakfast. Fun for everyone. Cape May is fun. Free bikes and a gracious owner. Lucky Bones is a cool restaurant to visit in Cape May

This is a great place to stay, the room was very nice and it had a tub and shower plus a fireplace and it was quiet. The breakfast was very good also, you were given a menu and you could choose your breakfast. The restaurant is a great place to eat also

My husband and I stayed at Peter Shield's Inn for our honeymoon. It was the first stay for both of us. From check-in to check-out the staff was extremely friendly, polite, and attentive. We stayed on the third floor in the Ocean Side View Room 8. We found both the room and bath to be large enough, nicely furnished and... More

This was our second trip to the Peter Shields Inn and it was equally as fabulous as our first visit. The inn is directly across the street from the ocean. Last year's weather made for more beach walking and sunning, but we did get out this year and walk along the shore. We found quite a few conch shells at... More

My wife and I stayed here for a night to celebrate valentines day weekend. The Inn is beautiful and in a great location directly across from the beach. The room was quaint with ample size and a gas fireplace. The bathroom was nice and well kept but for our room it was not that large. Each room varies in size... More

I stayed in the Peter Shields the weekend of December 15, 2012, while attending a Cape May Christmas Tour. We were in Room 7 - warmly decorated in shades of yellow with a cozy gas fireplace and comfy bed snugly tucked beneath the eaves of the Inn. Although it was a short stay, it was plenty long enough for us... More

Our 29th anniversary brought us to PSI on the whim to stay put, for one night in an inn, in which, we could relax by a fireplace, in our room, with a cocktail; eat an amazing gourmet dinner; afterwards, relax by another fireplace downstairs and enjoy the comfort and elegance of a very well-run inn. It was a perfect one... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay in Cape May, for a quick overnight stay, and we came across the Peter Shields Inn. We have stayed in several different places in Cape May before, but we were looking to save a little money on this trip, and the Peter Shields Inn was running a special price... More
