Two night stay this month. Room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was superb. Located two blocks from beach - one can easily hear the ocean from the lovely porch. Also very well located for walking to restaurants and shopping. Plenty of private parking.

My husband and I needed a few days "away" to clear our heads. We had a wonderful stay at the Luther Ogden Inn. Our room (#1) was small, but plenty of space for our needs. The location is perfect - just a block off the beach, and within walking distance to many great restaurants and the Mall. Our hosts, Jan... More

We spent a delightful June weekend at the Luther Ogden Inn while in Cape May for a wedding. Mark and Jan were gracious hosts who made us feel right at home. The highlight of each day was Jan's award winning breakfasts. Her raisin French toast with assorted fresh fruit was my favorite. The room was comfortable and clean and the... More

What a beautiful B&B. Right in the center of everything wonderful in Cape May. Our innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was simply amazing. Everything was so fresh and delicious and the best was it was served to us on their amazing porch. The best wrap around porch in Cape May - honestly. My boyfriend and I were unaware... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the quaint Luther Ogden Inn. The location was perfect; within walking distance to the main promenade and gorgeous beaches; within driving distance from nature trails and historic landmarks. We had a wonderful time getting to know the friendly innkeepers and felt oh so at home. Would definitely recommend to a couple... More

This has been our favorite B&B we have stayed in at Cape May. The price is good and the location can not be beat, 2 min walk to the beach and 5 min walk downtown. Jan was more than accommodating and gave us some great info about the area. Room was perfect for what we needed and my wife commented... More

There is no higher compliment in the innkeeping business than a return customer! Thank you so much for your kind words. And you booked your return stay before you even checked out! Let's hope the weather for Memorial Day is warm and sunny! We look forward to seeing you again next month. More

Thank you for taking the time to review our inn even though it was 9 months after you stayed. You were here June 26-29, the last weekend in June and paid under $200 per night for the 3 of you. We are quite moderately priced. Eighteen years ago my feelings would have been hurt to be called "grumpy" but not... More

Beautiful inn near the beach and center of town. Room was rather small, on the 3rd floor, and the sink was outside the bathroom, but it was comfortable and well decorated. Breakfast was delicious. It's only served at 9AM, so you're eating with all the other guests at the same table, which was quite enjoyable. The owners are very friendly... More
