My boyfriend and I had a wonderful one night stay in the Bacchus Inn's Rioja Room. John was such a friendly and attentive host to us. The room was gorgeous, clean, and very cool which we loved. There were many DVD's in their collection of classics that we were able to choose from. Although we were exploring the Cape during... More

John, the owner of this charming B & B, was the perfect host! When they ran out of newspapers, he immediately jumped on his bicycle and went to a store and got more. The location of the Bacchus Inn, on Columbia Avenue, is central to everything. If you wish, you can park your car and not have to move it... More

This Inn is clean, friendly, quaint and located 2 blocks from the beach and everything worthwhile in Cape May. The proprieter John is a gracious host who has boundless energy and he bends over backwards to make your stay memorable. The breakfast is as nice as you'll find anywhere and the 4 PM to 5 PM wine and cheese a... More

We stayed here 6/24-6/26. This was our second time at The Bacchus Inn and, once again, it was perfect! The first time we stayed in Room 1, which was lovely, but this trip's Room 4 was outstanding! The bathroom was one of the largest I've seen at any B&B in Cape May. There was a bathtub with two side seats,... More

Welcoming and easy-going is the vibe at Bacchus Inn. Perfect B&B for a one-nighter. Close to everything and a porch outfitted with rockers to appreciate the cool summer breezes and a good book. Our room was pretty though small. The room air conditioner proved a challenge to sleeping due to the loud whir and our inability to open the window... More

We just wrapped our second stay at the Bacchus in. Can't speak highly enough of our time there. John is a great Innkeeper. Works his tail off to make sure you are pleased with your stay. Helps with dinner reservations and answering questions about what to do and where to go. Keeps the conversation lively and VERY entertaining. Would not... More

Been to numerous bed and breakfasts in Cape May and when we stayed at the Bacchus Inn a few years ago we had an amazing stay and have been coming back for a few years now. Inn keepers John and Lisa are great people that make you feel so comfortable. We look forward to afternoon wine and cheese on the... More

So on a Saturday morning my wife looks at me and says we should go to Cape May for the night. We live in Northern NJ but had never been. She jumps online and does a bunch of research and finds The Bacchus Inn. We were only there for one night but rest assured we will go back. Every part... More

My wife & I have traveled, every summer, for the past six years, up from Richmond, VA to Cape May & the Bacchus Inn. Then we spend the rest of the year, and into the next, dreaming about our next trip to Cape May & the Bacchus! Our first visit was so wonderful, thanks to John & Lisa, the hospitable... More
