We just visited the John Wesley Inn for the second time. The home is lovely and comfortable and each room is nicely appointed and a pleasure to stay in. The inn keepers are friendly, take pride in their home and are very accomodating. We will certainly be back again.

It doesn't get any better than the John Wesley. We have vacationed here for several years and it always exceeds expectations. Beautiful home, lovely rooms, half a block to the ocean, 5 minute walk to great restaurants. No need for your car once you park it there. Bonnie and Lance are the ultimate hosts, warm and helpful and respectful of... More

The John Wesley Inn is a beautifully restored Cape May Victorian bed and breakfast inn. The inn is filled with lovely antiques. Bonnie and Lance are welcoming innkeepers who go out of their way to make you feel at home. The inn is well located being just one block to the beach and a few blocks to the pedestrian mall....

A spacious, immaculate apartment in the carriage house. Half a block from the beach in the most desirable area. Beautifully decorated, every detail thought out well. Updated with all new appliances. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the beautiful apartment. Lance and Bonnie, the family owners, were friendly, accommodating and never intrusive.

We were celebrating my wife's bday and wanted a quick getaway to Cape May. Having never been to a bnb we had had our doubts. From the moment we spoke to Bonnie until the time we checked out it was amazing. The room was clean, the property was well kept, the breakfast was great, and the location was close everything...

We stayed at the John Wesley in for 3 nights over the 4th of July and had a perfect experience. It was a truly relaxing weekend thanks to Bonnie's attention to detail and going above and beyond to make us feel welcomed. The Inn is immaculate, historical and charming. Bonnie's breakfasts were delicious and elegantly presented. We enjoyed her afternoon... More

An adorably quaint B&B with the sweetest owner-operator, Bonnie. You feel like you're staying at grandma's house. Her attention to detail and ensuring your comfort is second-to-none, from the decorated breakfast table to the iced tea and cookies left out in the afternoon. Located just one block from the beach, towels, beach chairs and coolers are available for guests to... More

We stayed at the John Wesley Inn for 5 days over the 4th of July. We picked it because it was close to the place we usually stay which was full for the weekend. I am so glad we tried it. This place was amazing. Bonnie went above and beyond to make sure we were accommodated. If this is your... More

We went for a quick one night stay at the John Wesley Inn this past weekend. They truly went above and beyond – when Bonnie noticed that I was pregnant, she turned it into an official "babymoon" and presented us with a Cape May teddy bear. The house itself is historical, charming and comfortable. The location is just exceptional, and a... More

We stayed at the John Wesley Inn in May of this year. This was the first bed and breakfast that we ever stayed at and I was honestly leery about staying. It was OUTSTANDING ! Our host, Bonnie and Lance, the room, the food, the cleanliness, the location, everything about the Inn was excellent. I would highly recommend the Inn... More
