My husband and I stayed in the Southern Mansion 6/19-6/21. I would not consider it a B&B. I consider the Southern Mansion a small boutique hotel. We did not meet the owners, which I come to expect at my B&B experiences, but the staff was friendly. Service: very friendly and available when needed. We didn't have many requests, so overall...

We stopped by this week with the purpose of booking 4 rooms for a long weekend. The property is beautiful with countless perennial flowers and is well maintained. We rang the bell and were greeted by a woman who told us she had calls to return so walk around and see the property. She went off and never came back.... More

Stayed for a mid-week visit during the week of June 15th. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic! We had some issues with our room - water leaking into the bathroom from the ceiling. They were immediately addressed and we were upgraded to a larger room. Very satisfactory solution.

Southern Mansion is a beautiful Victorian mansion in Cape May, NJ. We were lucky enough to have to stay here for a wedding this past May and enjoyed our time there. The wedding was beautiful and memorable. The property and home itself are massive with lots of area to explore. I enjoyed the "widow's walk" and the beautiful appointed rooms.

Beautiful mansion with lovely grounds and gardens. Helpful and kind staff. Located near center of town and close to beach. Great breakfast. Very relaxing time spent on porch. There was even a wedding in the garden. What a way to remember our special day.

Breakfast each morning was delicious and every server was polite, friendly and knowledgeable. The inn staff was great, answered all questions, took care of all needs. Shout out to Rita who... More

The best thing about the hotel was the location. We spent several nights and enjoyed the beautiful building and grounds. We were within walking distance to many restaurants, beaches and the Washington Street Mall. Our room was quiet and very well maintained by the housekeeping staff. Unfortunately our room was located at the top of a spiral staircase so accessibility... More
