“Perfect Base From Which To Explore Cape May”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2011

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.

What an amazing weekend. Staying at the Bayberry Inn was a perfect way to celebrate a special anniversary. Toby and Andy have the gift of hospitality and everything about the place says, "Welcome, we are glad you are here." Toby's breakfasts are 5 stars - not to be missed. We stayed in the suite and felt pampered the whole weekend, from the plush robes, to a relaxing soaking tub, to a fireplace, a sweet window seat, and more. A whole floor to ourselves! We will return and and enjoy their special touches again.

I recently stayed at the Bayberry Inn with my sister and mom for our annual "Mommy-Daughter Getaway", and would stay here again in a heartbeat! This beautifully restored, historical home is warm and welcoming. Andy and Toby, the owners and hosts, have created an environment that provides all the creature comforts, but also maintains the historical charm of Cape May. The breakfasts are simply AMAZING...3-courses, all home-made, starting with fresh fruit, a sweet or savory main dish, and dessert! The upside-down french toast was so perfect, my mouth waters just thinking about it! The rooms are beautifully decorated and comfortable (although our air conditioner was a little noisy), and the location is ideal for shopping and the beach. We love the Bayberry Inn and will be back!

We went to Cape May for bird watching and were extremely pleased not only with the birding but also with the Bayberry Inn. The rooms were clean and well-appointed, the breakfasts were extraordinary, and the location central to everything. Even though it is located in the heart of downtown Cape May, we found the Inn quiet and restful. We were particularly taken with the screened-in side porch which overlooks a secluded garden. The innkeepers were very amiable and helpful in orienting us to the Cape, a welcome factor as this was our first (but clearly not our last) visit to the region.

Our stay in the Bayberry Inn exceeded our expectations. It was magical. We actually got engaged the weekend of our stay!! The Bayberry Inn has a special place in our hearts and enabled us to have the most memorable engagement and weekend.

The home represents all that Cape May is known for. It was built during the early 1800's, maintains all of its Colonial charm and has a great porch for relaxing. Toby and Andy were very helpful hosts, and they take a lot of pride in the home. Andy has an award winning collection of Orchids, and Toby's 3 course breakfasts were simply magnificent. The location is a block and a half from the beach and a minutes walk to the Washington St Mall area, so you're right in the heart of the action.

The room itself was nice and inviting, and the same Colonial/Victorian style as the rest of the house. The home offers parking and beach chairs for its guests. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. Thank you Toby and Andy.

I have stayed at the Bayberry Inn so many times that it really does feel like "home away from home." It is like visiting old friends. The hospitality, cleanliness, decor, and breakfasts are just wonderful. I have been there in the Spring, Fall, and at Christmas time. I loved it each and every time. I always hate leaving and can't wait until the next visit.

With so many B&B's in Cape May it was hard to chose one. My husband loved the idea that the innkeepers raise orchids, so that's how we selected the Bayberry Inn. We are so happy we did. The innkeepers are natives of the area and beaming with pride in their inn and the area. We are fond of places that are owner-operated, with less commercialism and an emphasis quality, and the Bayberry Inn is all those things. They were also very knowledgable about great places for a walk and restaurants, too. We had a lovely time.
