We have stayed at many Bed & Breakfasts and this was one of the biggest. Very clean and cozy and the food was delicious. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. The mansion and the décor was amazing, Very relaxing experience.

My wife and I had our 1 year anniversary here and this was one of the best stays we have ever had. The size of the mansion is impressive. Has a great feel to the entire property. Each room has its own design and can be a completely new experience each time you visit. It's a little confusing about the... More

We actually chose the this place to get married at. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are so cozy, comfortable and quaint. Feel like your are living in the past, but have the modern conveniences of today. Nice staff, breakfast in the a.m. is wonderful. Would go back again, which would be our 3rd stay.

We have stayed in a couple places in Cape May, many of them with more reviews and rated higher then this place. We found this to be the best B&B in cape may. First, the rooms and beds were amazing - spacious comfy and well appointed. Secondly, the breakfast is a REAL one. Enough with the B&Bs who serve a... More

Spent 2 nights here mid-week in July. For an older, historic hotel, I must tell you that the air conditioning system is awesome. My wife and I were in room 20 in the 2 story wing and it was very cozy, private, and cold! We love AC in the summer and this place did not disappoint, great AC and privacy.... More

We came down here last minute in April on a deal from travel zoo. I thought the hotel would be located along the water but it was not. It's absolutely stunning inside and out. The wraparound porch was awesome! The gentleman who checked us in was very friendly, and shared personal ghost stories with us and even had photos to... More

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.

Large room decorated with elaborate drapes, carved bed....just like the pics. The bathroom had a large shower, but no room to put anything...just a small ledge. The shower was good, and the towels and linens great. One dressing gown and great shampoos etc. the room had an amoir and a chest of draws, one round table with chairs and a... More
