Our four day mini-vacation was quite enjoyable at this beautiful B and B. The location was great for enjoying the quaint shops and great restaurants. Breakfast was especially nice because of the glutin free choses we had. But, the highlight of our day was the superb service we received from our waiter John. His friendly demeanor, as well as his...

Wonderful room, wonderful experience. Attentive friendly service including a tour of the extensive remodeled features. Room grand and squeaky clean. Not really a B&B and not really a hotel but rather a unique combination. We really enjoyed our visit and will return.

The restoration is gorgeous inside and out. Staying here, my wife and I felt almost like time travelers. We stayed in Room 2, a fabulous, high-ceilinged, room with a view. The bathroom is compact and workable. The shower is luxurious. The bathtub -- who uses bathtubs anyway? (I was disappointed to see a tad of paint chipping inside the tub,... More

We had a wonderful experience at The Southern Mansion. Upon entering, we were greeted by a young lady in a crisp blazer who walked us to reception and then gave us a brief tour. It was an excellent first-impression that set the tone for our stay. The two basic elements for a B&B were top-notch: The Bed and the Breakfast.... More

We enjoyed this place to the fullest. The rooms are perfect. We had tour of the mansion with Rita. She is knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. I will return. Thank you Southern Mansion and Rita. This is a gem.

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in September, 2014, in the suite, Room #2. We highly endorse the SM as this is the 4th or 5th time here. All rooms were lovely, but our favorite is Room #2. Staff were friendly, helpful, and very professional. Room was thoroughly clean and maintained daily by the staff. Of note,... More

We went with friends for a short 3 day trip. We all loved the place! Breakfast was great. Location was fantastic. We were able to walk almost everywhere. Visiting the winery is a must...we rented bikes and rode over.

Our second time here. We stayed in room 20 last year and this year room 19. Both rooms are so nice and the beds so comfortable we didn't want to get up. Breakfast is also very good and a nice touch this place offers at no extra charge. We'll be back again next year! Btw Try the blue rose inn... More

Had our wedding here Labor Day weekend. Had friends and family from all over. I could not have been more perfect. Ken and the rest of the staff were the best hosts. Several guests commented on the impeccable service. Grounds and room were fantastic, food was delicious. Can't say enough good things about this place. Thanks for everything.

Such a beautifully restored mansion. My wife and I took the tour and plan to stay here on our next trip to Cape May. Our guide was a very informative history major who presented a captivating history of the mansion. A must see on your visit to Cape May.
