We booked The Bacchus Inn based on it's location and it's reviews. We were not disappointed. The breakfast was great and the afternoon wine & cheese, tea & coffee was a nice late day treat. Our room was well appointed, the bed was very comfortable, and the location of the inn made it conveniently located to everything, yet very quiet... More

Another super enjoyable stay, (our 3rd), at the Bacchus Inn! John, the innkeeper, is truly superb at what he does, (obviously enjoying it also), making your stay as wonderful as possible while showing a true interest in each guest. He is full of great Cape May knowledge of restaurants, history, shopping, things to do, etc. Each time back is like... More

Nice, clean room. Excellent location. You will not find a better host or inn owner like John anywhere. He is witty, knowledgable, and always willingly answer questions about restaurants but pushes none. And by the way, his breakfasts are great.

My husband and I have been going to the Bacchus Inn for four years. The prices are great, rooms are wonderful, and breakfasts are always exciting! The location is very close to the beach, but tucked away on a nice, quiet street. We enjoy the 4pm wine and cheese after a hot day on the beach, and love using the... More

This was our first time visiting Cape May and I'm so happy we chose to stay at the Bacchus Inn. Like most reviewers, it's the owner, John that makes this B&B top notch. We stayed in the cottage, room #12 (Champagne Room) and it was perfect. I loved the little sitting room with the day bed. The B&B provided beach... More

I cannot say enough great things about our stay at the Bacchus Inn. First of all, the in keeper, John, couldn't be more cordial, welcoming, entertaining, and courteous. He was helpful with selecting restaurants & setting reservations. The amount of returning guests there during our stay were saying it was because of John. Our room was clean, inviting, quaint, and...

There are many lodging options in Cape May, from hotels to motels, guest rooms and the numerous B & B's. After doing a lot of research (a lot) we choose the Bacchus Inn. For us it was a wise decision. The house is very well kept, clean and tastefully decorated. We stayed on the top floor of the main house... More

John and Lisa really make you feel at home when you stay here. The rooms are comfy in the main house and in the cottage across the street. Great food, close to the beach, free wifi, AND a great happy hour with wine and cheese. You won't regret staying here!

The Bacchus Inn fit that bill to a tee. John and his wife Lisa are wonderful hosts that cater to your every need... More

Another awesome weekend at The Bacchus Inn. John and Lisa are amazing hosts. Always make you feel comfortable and are very friendly. John is very knowledgeable about restaurants (never steered us wrong) and activities. Breakfast is always delicious. Alternates days with sweet and savory. All rooms are decorated beautifully and are very clean. Has king beds in a few rooms... More
