This B&B (now known as The Harrison) is located approximately one block from the beach and a little more than a block from the main shopping area. it's location is really nice and the street upon which is located is picturesque. During our stay, this facility did not operate as a B&B. Our family rented the entire building and no... More

Stayed here recently because we had pleasant stays in the past. New owner has far to go. View from our separate room was of window frames with drying paint rather than a small garden. Breakfast used to be served on the porch, but porch had painting tarps everywhere. One day people breakfasted on porch but had to bus their own... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights/3 days here to celebrate our anniversary. The staff is very friendly and our room was a nice size and clean. I loved the decor of the whole place, it is very modern and chic. The porch is inviting and has many rocking chairs as well as small tables to eat at. The breakfast... More

My husband and I couln't have been more pleased with our experience at the Summer Cottage Inn. Owners Kelly and Andrew made us feel more like old friends than guests and Jean did an incredible job managing all the needs of the fully booked B&B. The house itself offers sumptuous furishings and a warm and cozy fireplace. Exquisitely prepared breakfasts... More

My husband and I were gifted this room as a Christmas present to get away before having our second child. When we arrived, the place looked great. There was a fire in living room, and coffee and cookies set out. However, there was no innkeeper or host/hostess anywhere to be found. Once we got into our room, we discovered that... More

My husband and I went down for a quick weekend away with another couple. Cape May at Christmas time is BEAUTIFUL and we couldn't have asked for a more centralized location. Walking distance to everything in town (restaurants, shops, bars) and the town itself is covered in lights. Summer cottage was comfortable and welcoming, with a nice fire roaring in... More

Great location. Street parking was limited. Host/hostess did not engage guests or offer information about the area. Bed was comfortable and bathroom was clean. Furniture & furnishing were a bit worn. Baked goodies were excellent. Breakfast good, but not enough space at the dining room table to seat all guests. For this price, I expected more.

This is a great place for a family reunion we had the whole house to ourselves and we enjoyed the privacy. It is close to the beach and shopping and dozens of restaurants. It was very clean and we had everything we needed.

This is truly a great B & B. The home itself is very warm and welcoming. Our room, the Harrison Cottage, was roomy and comfortable and away from street sounds. A nice touch in this B & B was the guest pantry. There is a full refrigerator to store food/beverages and adequate space to prepare. The breakfast was adequate and... More

My best friend and I have stayed at the Summer Cottage Inn for about 4 years now. She lives in Maryland and I live in New York so Cape May is a good central meeting place for us. We get together at least 2 times a year for a "girls weekend" and we always stay at Summer Cottage Inn. It's... More
