We have been staying here for a number of years. Fred and Joan are outstanding hosts and their home is immaculate. It is close to the beach, and the Washington Street Mall. Breakfasts are delicious, and there is always a hot breakfast option homemade by Joan. If you are looking for a place to stay in Cape May that you... More

Fantastic hosts, breakfast, room, location, amenities, snacks. We loved it! These folks went out of their way to make us comfortable and to help guide us as we visited Cape May for the first time. We were very lucky to have a room available as our plans were last minute. Someone happened to cancel and we were able to stay.... More

Returning after ten years to Cape May, and having such a great experience the last visit to Cape May, it wasn't any doubt on where we wanted to stay, only thing was could we get a reservation. Calling Joan, I was pleased to find out that there was a cancellation and there was room for our three day stay. The... More

Being reluctant to staying at a B&B, my husband and I chose the Gingerbread house as our first - that was 10 years ago and we have been going back every year (sometimes twice a year). We visited this past July and again in August closing out the summer with yet another wonderful, relaxing stay. We always look forward to... More

The location was perfect. The house itself, settled among the row of historice Stockton houses on Gurney Street was very special indeed. Every detail in the construction and decoration was perfectly realized. Fred and Joan had thought of every little detail to make our visit to their House perfect, right down to the lovely outdoor shower. The snacks and tea... More

My husband and I spent close to five days at the Gingerbread House last week. The location was ideal, about two blocks to the beach and 3-4 blocks from most restaurants. Joan and Fred are the the perfect B&B hosts; they went beyond our expectations as far as our room and our meals, ensuring that we were comfortable and happy... More

My stay at the Gingerbread was simply wonderful. From pulling up at the front door to my leaving, everything and everyone was lovely. The place is beautifully decorated in a Victorian theme and is spotless. The bathroom was immaculate and the bed very comfortable. It is also located less than a block to the beach and a couple of blocks... More

Joan and Fred are extremely accommodating. We were looking for a B&B that was close to the beach, shopping and served a lovely breakfast. The Gingerbread House had that and much more. The house is extremely clean and wonderful to explore. They have coffee, water and small snacks available all day. They provide bath towels, beach towels and beach chairs.... More
