We chose the Southern Mansion in Cape May for our wedding venue. This is an absolutely gorgeous B&B in historical Cape May NJ. The rooms are simply beautiful, each one decorated in period Victorian motif. We can't say enough about our experience at the mansion. The staff is excellent. Our wedding guests were amazed!

Beautiful old mansion with very spacious rooms. Very good breakfast and a very accommodating staff. Location was very good and within biking distance of shopping, beaches and tourist sites. It is not within easy walking distance of the beach which could be an issue if you went in the summer but as we were there in the fall that was... More

We decided to take a mini, mid week, winter get away and booked into the Southern Mansion, a bed and breakfast in Cape May, which is a Historical Landmark, filled with Victorian Era structures. The property is breathtaking, an no expense was spared in renovation and restoration of this magnificent piece of history. Our accommodations were like none other, being... More

We wanted a non traditional venue for our fall wedding. We found The Southern Mansion during one of our internet searches and were taken aback my the beautiful pictures. Not only is it gorgeous, its just as spacious. We spoke and emailed the wedding coordinator Andreea, who was such a big help; we booked our wedding date before even taking... More

We have never considered ourselves the B&B types but I want to stay in places that are quaint, charming, and memorable. The Southern Mansion is all of these. It is just the perfect blend of personal attention and privacy. The room was fabulous. When we arrived, there were homemade cookies and chocolate covered strawberries in our room. Every detail was...

This is the place where we got married - the wedding was in the parlor, dinner was on the porch and the reception was downstairs. Love the variety of rooms (#3, #4, #11, #25 and #1), love the breakfasts. It's a fabulous place to stay, no matter what season and within easy walking distance of the pedestrian mall.

I have wanted to bring my girlfriend (now actually fiance) to The Southern Mansion for years. It was exquisite. The room was spacious, romantic and had everything we needed for the entire weekend. The full breakfast that was included was better than I ever expected. Everything at least seemed to be made to order along with a continental bar. During... More

We have been coming here since it first opened since the early 90s. Our daughter grew up coming here with us and it is still a magical place. We do however miss the afternoon tea and the dinners they use to have back in the day. Breakfast is still amazing. We recently stayed this past Thursday to Friday. Stayed in... More
