Spent a girls' getaway weekend in the Rose Suite with my 3 best friends this past weekend (10/11-13) and we had a blast. The suite was so adorable and suited us perfectly and the location could not have been better with shopping and restaurants a block away or even as close as just across the street! The downstairs neighbors were... More

We stayed for the week of June 22. The suite was everything advertised. Very nice touches and all the charm of Victorian Cape May. The location was fantastic. Right across from the Virginia Hotel and Mad Batter. The houses on the street are all different and interesting. The porch of the Puffin was very welcoming and we spent our mornings... More

This lovely suite is located directly across the street from the Virginia Hotel. This means it is incredibly convenient to the beach, the mall, bike rentals, and many restaurants and shops. The suite has two very nice bedrooms with comfortable beds and a living area containing a full, small kitchen. There is parking on-site but the spaces are tight so... More

My dad, my brother, and I decided to take a weekend trip so we could do some family bonding. We chose Cape May and ended up having a wonderful time. The Rose Suite at the Puffin was great, perfect location within town and just a minute or two walking to the beach. The suite was fine for three adults -... More

Last weekend was my second stay at the lovely Terrace Suite at the Puffin. The suite was roomy and clean, with a kitchen, two bedrooms, and one bathroom. I slept on the pull-out sofa bed in the living room, which was easily the most comfortable pull-out mattress I have ever slept on in my life! You can't beat the location,... More

Had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend at the Terrace Suite. The first floor was great for our two young granddaughters and the keyless code entry was very easy to use. NO KEYS! Loved it. Very clean suite with full kitchen and comfortable living room area with table and chairs. The 2 bedrooms were also comfortable (even mattresses) and we all... More

We cannot say enough about how delightful our trip to Cape May was staying at the Puffin Suite, in the Atlantic Suite. Everything about how the rooms were designed was perfect for my family. The full-size kitchen was very convenient with small children, we were able to eat breakfast before we went out each day. The beds were soooo comfortable!... More

Our stay at the Rose Suite at the puffin house could have not been any more memorable and special. The house is incredibly charming and comfortable. It's a delightful two bedroom suite that takes you back to the 1900s with the comfort and space of the 21 st century. It's also perfectly located on Jackson ave....a half block away from... More

We stayed at the Holly Suite with my 2 and 5 year old kids. They were so so child friendly. Can't beat the location. I have stayed in Cape May before and the Puffin is so centrally located. It is really great to easily stroll to town or the beach. It was super clean (I am very OCD about that... More
