Spent two nights this week at the Cottage. Our room was outstanding and I told Allison, the owner, the mattress was better than our mattress at home. Breakfast was very good and my wife and I enjoyed hearing the stories of the White Dover each morning with Allison. This was our third stay at this B&B over the last 15... More

We needed a weekend get away at Cape May, and we needed to take our geriatric little dog with us. We had the room in the back with a sitting room (immediately claimed by the dog) and jacuzzi. Breakfasts were divine and Allison goes out of her to be accommodating. An easy walk to the beach and the shops and... More

Had a great weekend in Cape May. Allison was very, very helpful. Location was great for shopping and dining. Also close to properties that were on the Candlelight tours. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms were clean and quaint.

My wife and I have stayed at the White Dove Cottage about a half dozen times in the past, and actually have gone enough where we saw a new owner take over. The only difference between owners is that this one has tons of pictures of horses on the walls. This is a delightful Inn with attractive, comfortable rooms, nice... More

We brought our two small dogs with us on vacation last summer and got a private suite with its own entrance at the White Dove. The backyard was absolutely wonderful, we could let the dogs safely romp around as we drank our morning coffee. You have the very nice option of joining other people for breakfast if you want some...

We chose this B&B because it was dog-friendly and it was a great choice. Our suite had a private, side entrance to a fenced-in yard that was great for our small dog. The location is very good; in between the beach (2 blocks) and the main shopping mall-street (2 blocks), but the street was residential and quiet; all restored Victorians,... More

I booked the White Dove Cottage on 10/5/13 for a 3 day stay on 10/21/13. My girlfriend was taken to the emergency room on 10/18/13 and was diagnosed with cancer. Her first doctor's appointment was set for 10/21/13, so I called and asked to move the reservation to 10/28/13. White Dove accommodated my request. During the appointment, the doctor wanted... More

I stayed at the White Dove Cottage last week with my fiancé and my dog. We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend. The bed and breakfast is located on a quiet street only two blocks from the beach and numerous restaurants. We stayed in the Lady Susann suite which was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. We enjoyed sitting on the porch... More

As a seasoned 25 years plus annual visitor to Cape May I was thrilled to be referred here and awestruck by the beauty and historic authenticity of The White Dove Cottage. Alison the proprietor's warm hospitality and conversation is enhanced by her delicious and varied breakfast menus. This was my first of what I plan to be many more visits... More
