Spent three days with Fred and Joan... couldn't have been better! From the reservation to the greeting to the roms, food etc. all first rate. Chose the Gingerbread House because of location which is ideal but was pleasantly suprised with the hospitality and feel of the B&B and the people. Fred and Joan know what they are doing.

This was our second stay at the Gingerbread House in Cape May NJ and again it was a wonderful experience. The B&B is kept in immaculate condition and the hospitality provided by Joan and Fred and McKinley is the best. We will be back.

My wife and I have a vacation rule: seek the "A" experience, particularly regarding lodging. The second floor, front suite in the Gingerbread house satisfied the rule. We enjoyed a lovely room with private bath one block from the beach with a large balcony overlooking the historic street. The house is walking distance to the shopping and dining district. Joan,...

What a great time. Joan and Fred are wonderful hosts and the Gingerbread house is a delight. Joan cooks a fantastic breakfast and we loved the location of the house. Less than a block from the beach! We'll be back! G & J

My wife and I have been visiting Cape May for the past 4 years. We've stayed at other bed and breakfasts the years before, but never returned. This past weekend, we chose The Gingerbread House without knowing much about it. The house is so beautiful from the outside, that we actually walked across the street to take a few pictures... More

We had a very nice experience at the Gingerbread Inn. We were on the 3rd floor since that's all that was available and had to share a bathroom. Next time we will book further in advance to get our own bathroom. It's nice that they have beach chairs and towels to use.

This year marks my third stay at The Gingerbread house with my husband and we will be going back again next year for sure. Joan, Fred and McKinley make you feel right at home with their hospitality!! We were fortunate enough to find the perfect B & B on our first stay and that's why we continue to go back.... More

My wife and I recently spent a great weekend at the Gingerbread House. The room was ready right at check-in (12:00) which is early for most b&bs. High quality beach chairs and towels were provided and there is an outdoor shower to wash off when returning from the beach. Breakfast was very good with a hot entree as well as... More

Joan, Don't think I'm calling you Grandma by any means!!! Just had that wonderful feeling of being somewhere where you're wanted! Upon arrival, Mac (McKinley) greeted us on the front porch like she knew us!! Explained everything that they have and do, showed us around the property like we were interested buyers!! Great food, comfortable bed, SNACKS!!!! When leaving, felt... More

The Gingerbread house is located right in the middle of everything; beach, restaurants, shopping, etc. Fred & Joan were great hosts and every morning a delicious hot meal was served along with other cold options. We were also able to keep our bikes right out back on their bike rack. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We... More
