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

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
