Stayed in the Parlor Suite, Lovely! Owner gave a quick tour of the other suites on a summer switch out day. All were tastefully Cape May and immaculately clean! One of the BEST places to stay in season for a week or if you are lucky enough to snag a long weekend off season. An outstanding experience - owners are... More

My wife and I have just returned from another autumn stay at The Columbia House. We've always enjoyed the beautiful Victorian architecture, antiques, and character of this home. This time we were scheduled to be in the Master Bedroom for 4 nights but the owner, Laura, chose to upgrade us to the Turret Suite. This particular lodging had 2 bedrooms,... More

This is my favorite place to stay in Cape May. We always stay in the Turret Suite a the top of the house (narrow stairs - not good for people who can't do stairs!). There are two full bedrooms and two full separate baths, each has a sitting area, dressers and closets with ample hangars. The rooms feature a good... More

Five friends and I went to the Columbia House to relax, have fun and take a short vacation. We booked the Master Suite/Master Bedroom. Each of the three bedrooms was a nice size and the Master Bedroom was HUGE with its own bathroom. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses and so forth. There was a nice deck...

Great location, right in the middle of everything. Place is clean, very nice rooms, comfy rooms, with antique type furniture within the rooms. Reasonably priced. Stayed in the turret suite...which was awesome. Host is very accommodating. No breakfast here...which is just fine. Would give it 4.5 stars, but not an option here on T A

We visited this property last year to see if it was something we would like as the B n B that we had previously been staying at was closing. Laura was quite informative about the property and showed us all of the units that were unoccupied at the moment. I liked the Turret Suite and we booked it shortly afterwards.... More

Our group of 8 (6 adults, 2 teens) rented the Master suite which encompasses the entire 3rd floor of the Columbia House. It was perfect for our weekend getaway. The master bedroom was big enough for 2 adults and 2 kids - we used the bed, the daybed, and then brought an air mattress. There is also a sleep sofa... More

This was our second time visit to the Columbia House and we'll visit again. I can't say enough great things. A block from the beach, a couple from shopping and dining at fine restaurants, right in the Historic district! Child friendly, superb cleanliness, comfortable accommodations!! I can't wait to visit again!!!! Oh and did I mention on site parking? FANTASTIC!!!

My husband and I returned to Cape May in mid-April and stayed again at the Columbia House. We usually book the Parlor Suite on the first floor but this time when I tried to book it the suite was already taken. Laura then offered us the larger Garden Suite, which is also on the first floor, for the same price... More
