I loved my June 2008 stay at The Gingerbread House on Gurney Street in Cape May. The innkeepers are the BEST, and the rooms and breakfast are wonderful. Their location makes everything just perfect - one block from the beach - what could be better! I am looking forward to next year's trip to Cape May and The Gingerbread House!

With fastidious attention to detail and exemplary standards of hospitality, Fred and Joan truly go the extra mile to make this B&B experience one to treasure. Their warm greeting and kind nature were welcoming and in keeping with the spirit of Victorian charm. Wholesome breakfast and homemade treats at tea time provide the needed energy to explore this historical wonderland... More

This is an excellent B & B. The owners are friendly and offer a fabulous homemade breakfast with excellent fruit and cakes, as well as homemade desert for afternoon tea. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with lovely antiques They also provide wonderful creams and shampoos. The front second floor room, #1, includes a porch overlooking the street and the ocean...

My husband and I just spent a long weekend at the Gingerbread House in Cape May to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. As always (this was our 3rd stay), the house was beautiful, and proprietors Joan and Fred were great for inspired conversation. In addition to truly enjoying the experience at the B&B, the location is fantastic: just a half-block... More

We had a wonderful time at the Gingerbread House! Cape May is a beautiful place to visit with classic Victorian architecture, the beach, interesting shops and excellent restaurants. But even without all that we would have had a great time just staying in! Our hosts were warm and friendly people who went the extra mile to make things convenient for... More

What a wonderful B&B! My 3 sisters & I had the entire thrid floor to ourselves. The Victorian home is beautifuly furnished, warm & inviting. It's set just 1/2 block from the beach. A few minutes walk & I was strolling in the sand by the ocean, enjoying the morning breeze. Later, over a delicious egg casserole on the front... More

What a wonderful stay we had at the Gingerbread House in Cape May, NJ. The owners, Fred and Joan, were so warm and friendly. They were willing to take the time to tell us all about the wonderful house that was built in the late 1800's. Fred has done all the work on this lovely home himself with the help... More

The Gingerbread House was quaint, quiet and a quality stay! Hosts Fred and Joan are extremely nice and make you feel more like family than visitors. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable. Whether it's the food at the B&B, the location to the shore (1 block!) or the close proximity to all of the town's activities, you can't go wrong... More

My sister and I had a wonderful stay at the Gingerbread house last year. I was just reminiscing and thought 'I must let others know about this gem'. We had only a couple of days in Cape May (not long enough) but the Gingerbread house was a great place to stay. Fantastic hospitality, location and comfort (and great afternoon tea!)... More

We have just returned from a stay at the Gingerbread House in Cape May, NJ. Our hosts, Joan & Fred could not have made us feel more welcome. Upon our arrival in the rain, we were offered umbrellas for our sightseeing. They offered activity and restaurant recommendations which were very helpful since it was our 1st stay in Cape May....
