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

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.
