Two friends and I recently spent four nights at Cooper's and we all enjoyed it very much. If you rent room 1 with the king bed you have private access to the entire second story porch, which is heaven. We also rented the adjoining room 0, so there was plenty of indoor space for us as well as on the... More

My husband and I just spent four days at Coopers Guest House. We don't look for all the bells and whistles when we stay somewhere we would rather spend the money on food and entertainment. Sylvia provides a home like setting for guests. Very quiet, the beds are comfortable, the rooms are very clean. We felt at home. We were... More

Sylvia is a wonderful hostess at this small guest house. Not a B&B; though she does provide coffee in the morning. Good location one block from beach and just a few to Washington Mall. Her prices are reasonable; in season or out. She is there if you need her but not obtrusive. One of the best in Cape May!

My son and daughter in law had their wedding in Cape May and the family stayed at the Cooper Guest House for the 3 day event. Sylvia was amazing , she let our guest get dressed at the Cooper House before the wedding. Sylvia also permitted us to have our own food on the front porch for breakfast and lunch.... More

I really want to call it "Sylvia's" because she truly makes it what it is. It's a home, and you will have the opportunity to really place yourself in the moment and time in a truly timeless context in beautiful Cape May. You DON'T need a TV. You don't need overstuffed chintz, internet access and your blankety-blank cell phone! BE... More

My wife & I stayed here during the 2012 Victorian Weekend. Cooper's is in an excellent location; we parked our car (free on-site parking) & walked everywhere! The ocean, bike rentals, shopping & eateries are just a few minutes away! Sylvia courteously greeted us at the door and escorted us to our room. Our room (#7) was simple, clean and... More

Ca. 1 and 1/2 blocks from the ocean, this is one of the very few remaining guest houses here. Most are B and B's, which of course are more expensive. A cozy arrangement, the house dates from 1875. The owner, Sylvia Cooper, is a very pleasant and friendly woman, conscientiously keeping up the property. There's a rather modest wraparound first-floor... More

I had not been to Cooper's since the early 80s--my loss. Obviously both Sylvia and I are a tad bit older and her mom passed away this past year; however I felt like I went back in time. The place was as great as ever--even better now that it has AC throughout! You can't beat Cape May either. Now my... More

We were at the end of our vacation in neighboring Wildwood Crest and we were looking for a night in Cape May. By luck we stumbled upon Cooper's. Sylvia graciously set us up for a single night stay in the middle of the week. We were fortunate to land the second floor room with the private bath and private porch.... More
