It had been a couple years since we had stayed at the Gingerbread House but due to our son deciding to get married in Cape May it gave us a great opportunity to come back to the Gingerbread House. 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

Joan and Fred took great care of us. The breakfasts were delicious and got up early the day we left so we could make the early ferry. The room was immaculate and well appointed. 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

My wife and I stayed at The Gingerbread House for an Anniversary Weekend Getaway. This was our first experience staying in a B&B, and we feel that we made an excellent choice with The Gingerbread House. The personalized touch was greatly appreciated. Joan gave us a full tour of everything when we arrived, and she walked us up to our... More

My wife and I had such a great time at the Gingerbread house. There were so many small details that Fred and Joan paid attention to that made the stay special. They provide nice beach chairs, the beach pass, and towels. There were always delicious cookies and brownies downstairs. The house was immaculate - probably the cleanest and well kept... More

We can’t say enough of how accommodating Fred & Joan are. They went out of their way to make our stay extra special. The home is truly victorian from the architecture down to each piece of furniture throughout. Their home is warm and is centrally located. Easy to get to the beach as well as to the shopping area. We... More

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
