We needed a one-night accommodation in Cape May and selected The Bacchus Inn based largely on Tripadvisor reviews--which we found were accurate. Our 3d floor room was beautiful, with a small porch attached. John, our host, obviously works out regularly and put his ample muscles to work carrying our bags for us--a blessing for older travelers, and a service often... More

I felt I must also write a review of our recent stay given that we felt the breakfast was a major shortcoming unlike what is said in elsewhere here. We have stayed in several other B&B's in Cape May, and many around the world. This one only offers fixed seatings: one at 8.30a and I think the other at 9.30a... More

A beautiful early fall weekend in Cape May at the Bacchus Inn. It was a treat to run into some other regulars, too. That's happening more and more often. Not surprising as the Bacchus has so much to offer - Victorian charm, great location, delicious breakfasts and the one and only John who keeps things lively and running like clock... More

Great place to stay in Cape May. John is a very hospitable owner. Snacks and wine offered during the late afternoon, and the breakfast is delicious (Banana Foster French Toast). Old Victorian Charm with well decorated rooms. Would highly recommend John's Bacchus Inn for your next visit to Cape May. Within a short walk to the beach and shopping, as... More

My husband and I took a few days off and stayed at The Bacchus Inn. It was clean, adorable, great location and loved the owner. Breakfasts were great and so was the 4:00pm wine and tea. Would highly recommend!

We had another exceptional visit to the Bacchus Inn this summer, accompanied with wonderful weather, friendly & interesting fellow guests, and, of course, owner/innkeeper par-excellence, John, who made sure that everyone was enjoying themselves and was well taken care of. We stayed in the smaller cottage, across Columbia Ave from the main inn, as is our tradition. We do not... More

We came for the first time and plan to return. The host, John, really enjoys making people feel welcome. According to people who are "regulars" for insurance reasons the "happy hour" has been downsized to a glass of wine or sangria, but its still a good excuse to sit on the porch and socialize. Most of the people here were... More

Let me start out by saying that the proprietor of this B & B was very, very nice. We also loved the happy hour as it gave us something to do since it rained the entire long weekend that we stayed. And if you really enjoy meeting and chatting with others, the porch at this B & B is a... More

I had the good fortune to accidentally find the Bacchus Inn last August when I sought to quietly usher in a milestone birthday. Upon arriving I was warmly welcomed by John at the Inn, which was so lovely, exceeding my high expectations. The "Zinfandel" room where I stayed was beautifully decorated, cozy and CLEAN. Breakfast was a yummy start to... More
