We had a great stay at the Summer Cottage Inn. The fact that we were able to use a Groupon made it an outstanding value. Even in the winter off-season, lots of fun stores and restaraunts are in walking distance. Cape May has increased its holiday activities quite alot since our last visit, and it is truly a winter wonderland.

Thoroughly enjoyed our night at the Summer Cottage Inn. Hadn't been in Cape May for 26 years and this was a wonderful experience despite the fact that many of the restaurants and other places of interest were not open (end of Oct.). The house set a rather casual atmosphere and we could come and go easily. Parking isn't always available... More

I rarely get my husband to take a vacation with me so I was pleasantly surprised when he agreed to spend a week with me in Cape May. The best part was the excellent Summer Cottage Inn! We had a few rain showers during our stay but the porch was ideal to watch the horses go by and relax on... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here just the other night We drove down and got to Cape May by 2 pm. We were able to check in right away with no problems. The living room and seating areas were beautiful with antique furniture, a piano and lots of books and area information. I loved the porch with the swing chair.... More

This was our first experience at the Summer Cottage Inn. Having vacationed in Cape May for the past 25+ years it is always a gamble to stay at a new bed and breakfast. Well, we won the jackpot with this gamble! We appreciated Aimee, the innkeeper's, friendly, warm, and helpful yet non-intrusive demeanor and felt cared for each day of... More

We stayed at the Summer Cottage Inn for a weekend getaway and had a lovely time. It's in a great location, only a block from the beach, and also very close to the shops on Washington St. The staff were all welcoming (though, admittedly, we never met the innkeeper), and we enjoyed the homemade breakfast (a hot dish, fruit salad,...

We stayed at the Summer Cottage Inn last week. The inn is one of our favorite places and we stay there every year for our anniversary. Although the inn is very clean and comfortable the new staff does not seem to be very friendly. The innkeeper never once came out to greet the guests. The assistant would appear and then... More

The two of us were making last-minute plans to spend two nights in Cape May, wanting a BandB. The Summer Cottage had a couple of rooms, where most others did not. BIG SURPRISE, and fortunate for us because this is a high-quality place. The Summer Cottage is beautifully located, across the street from The Abbey, one of the most renowned... More

Location- The location was great-one block away from the beach and close enough for us to walk to Washington Street Mall and the historic district. However, there is no parking lot onsite which was annoying as we had to park a few blocks away. Room-We stayed in the wicker garden room. One note-the room is very, very small so if... More
