I have never been to a bed and breakfast and my fiance didn't care for them. Well we stayed at Elaine's April 2013. From the moment Carol greeted us until she said good-bye, we had the perfect recharge of life weekend. The room and food were wonderful and we laughed the whole time during the dinner theater. Driving home my... More

I stayed at Elaine's B&B during one of their "Ghost Hunting" weekends in May 2012, and this was an AMAZING experience. My friends and I arrived at the Inn and were immediately shown to our rooms, which were beautiful. The rooms were clean and very cozy. We took a trip down to the bar for a drink...and the bar was...

It had been forever that my curiosity was motivated by this inn in Cape May. Even though not a beach property, it is special since it offers all year long dinner theater events. The bar is a good old wood bar like from the XIX century with an always friendly and competent bartender lady. The rooms are typical of an... More

This was one of the nicest B&B I have stayed at...they were so nice and gracious and the free breakfast that's included with your stay was absolutely scrumptuous. I had the fluffy pancakes the first morning and the second morning I had the Banana forsters French toast. The room was we stayed in was decorated so nicely and the beds... More

Elaine's is a little more than a typical B & B, given that you could order your included breakfast from a menu, with a pretty wide selection, not to mention quite scrumptious! We stayed in Room 2, the smallest one, because we wanted the first floor. It certainly was reasonably priced and very close to all the restaurants, shops, beach... More

The rooms are styled well with attention to detail, great antique furnishings. At the core of the house is the haunted restaurant, it has a definite flourish toward the tourist with the haunted house themes (ghosts, skeletons, etc). Each room has an included and reserved parking spot, which is great for a beach town. The food is great, breakfast was... More

Not having been there before, and with so many B&B's to choose from (Cape May has to be the B&B capital of the US with 50+), we picked a real winner. Located in the center of town, it's an easy walk to shops, restaurants, attractions and the beach. The Inn has 10 guest rooms, a small dinner theater, ghost walks... More

Elaines was perfect from check in to check out. The staff is friendly and informative, we felt like we were with good friends. Also if your travelling with children they are welcome (if well behaved) unlike many B & B in the area. Our room was comfortable and clean, but Emily the resident ghost did not have a sleep over...

My husband and I have stayed at Elaines many times. There isn't anything about it that we don't like. The staff is wonderful, they always cater to out every need, the food is delicious and Anita makes the best drinks! We've seen at least 3 of the dinner shows and have never been disappointed.

We rented two rooms for three nights. Both were exceptionally clean, daily service was great, they placed animals made out of towels on the beds after making them.
