I stayed at The Gingerbread House in June 2014. Since it was my first trip to Cape May, I wanted the B&B experience. The Gingerbread House did not disappoint. The property is quaint and well maintained and the innkeepers were attentive. The Gingerbread House has all the "staples" that I now know are common at Cape May B&Bs: front porch,... More

I highly recommend the Gingerbread House. Great location close to shopping/dining and you can see the ocean from the second story porches. It was the perfect setting for a girls night away! I would definitely stay again.

Had a great time. We enjoyed our stay at the Gingerbread Inn. The Inn is quintessential Cape May. Inn keepers and staff were very nice. Location is excellent. The breakfast was very good. We had pretty nice weather so we took advantage of the beach chairs provided and lounged on the beach. We would go back/recommend this Inn.

The accommodations were great and Joan and Fred were so gracious to us in every way..from the moment we arrived to... More

The Gingerbread House sits among a row of Victorian Houses less than a block away from the beach. The owners, Fred and Joan, have lovingly restored and maintained this B & B to satisfy even the most discriminating guest. They are friendly, helpful people and along with Mackenzie (a member of the staff) will make sure your stay surpasses your... More

They were helpful in advising us on things to do. I loved the cookies and snacks that were always available. Knowing we were going to be... More

Gingerbread house was recommended to us by the tourist info. We didn't know exactly what to expect, but this is the place to stay in Cape May. Joan and Fred have been innkeeper for 34 years and they know how to make visitors enjoy their stay. The warm welcome, the beautifully maintained house, the elaborate breakfast and the location close... More
