Bayberry Inn is a place to go to relax and take your time. If you expect differently, then you might be disappointed. But if you are prepared to start your days a little slower and linger over coffee, then you won't be disappointed.
Centrally located, Bayberry offers easy access to the pleasures of Cape May, but is just far enough off the main drag to avoid much noise. Our room was just above the front of the house and we still slept through all three nights. The rooms are perhaps a little small, but Cape May and the surrounding areas are to be explored and enjoyed----not avoided. Overall, they were clean, comfortable, and cozy.
The house offers a shady side porch and a sunny front to sit and read, which are comfortable places to relax if you want to avoid the crush of people. The side porch also has a refrigerator for guests, making a convenient storage for leftovers, wine, and cheese in case you prefer pack a small lunch than brave the restaurant hordes.
Breakfast was a three-course affair, usually fruit, a typical sweet or savory breakfast dish (e.g. french toast, waffle, or frittata) with a bit of twist, and something special to finish. The food is neither too sweet or too savory, and generally perfectly filling. It is delivered at a leisurely pace and guests are seated together around a long table....enjoy the food and the company.
Last but not least, the owners are fantastic people who balance sociability, respectful distance, and service as best suits the occasion. They are what make Bayberry Inn a delightful stay and an experience worth going back to.
