“2nd Time Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This was our second visit to Beauclaires Bed and Breakfast and it will definitely not be our last. Staying at this B & B is like going to our second home. Joe is warm and friendly and welcomes you with open arms. Once again the breakfasts were delicious. The house is very clean and we love how it's decorated with all the unique antiques. We stayed in the Beauclaire Suite and it was spacious with a very nice bathroom. The location of this B & B is just perfect. It's not far from the beach or the shopping area. I cannot say enough about how we loved staying here and we will be returning soon.

One of my girlfriends and I take a girls' trip to Cape May for two nights every summer. We always stay at Beauclaire's. The inn-keeper (Joe) always greets us immediately & offers to help us with our bags before taking us to our room. Then he makes sure we get some dinner recommendations before leaving us to get settled in.

In the morning we are greeted with a spectacular, filling breakfast that usually starts with fruit, juice and yogurt before the main course. Its a great way to start your day.

The rooms are always clean, with beautiful furniture and furnishings and our favorite room (Haley's Cottage) has an incredible claw-foot bath tub.

I highly recommend Beauclaire's and as long as I can manage the trip, we will continue to visit!

Room Tip: Haley's Cottage is the most beautiful room.

My husband and I stayed for one night to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. We booked with incredibly short notice and were delighted with our choice. Beauclaire's Bed and Breakfast was beautiful in person - the photos simply don't do it justice. It is in an ideal location - the beach is visible from the wraparound pouch and it's a short work to the quaint downtown area. Joe was incredibly friendly and offered many restaurant suggestions to celebrate our anniversary. Breakfast in the morning was fantastic!

I have been to many Bed and Breakfasts and found the Beauclaire B & B to be a wonderful experience. The location is ideal for trips to the ocean or a walk to downtown. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfasts were varied and delicious. Joe (the owner) really went out of his way to ensure our stay was pleasant with the amenities and his recommendations.

We only stayed two nights (June 24th & 25th) and overall found the house; our room, the Innkeepers, Joe and Joanne, and the other guests it to be very pleasant. This was our first time at a B & B; it was a unique and delightful experience. It was nicer in person than the photos on the website. It was a fun checking out the house when we first got there. Sure the floors creek and the doors are a little tricky; but what do you expect from a house that old, I felt that added to its charm. We were very comfortable there in every way. The location was great, a couple houses from the beach; we brought our bicycles from home which turned out to be a great idea. You can see a lot on a bicycle and getting around was easy. The best was our early morning bicycle rides on the beach promenade and through the back streets of the town. The Cape May light house is only 3 miles from Beauclaire's, an easy bike ride, but it was getting hot by the time we were ready to go there so we drove. They have enough parking for everyone; although it was a little tight for us (we have a full size pickup truck). The parking was sufficient and off the street. The old porch with the rocking chairs and swing was nice to take a break relax and have a glass of wine or a cold beer. Breakfast was good and eating with the other guests was pleasant. The only problem with the breakfast is that it isn’t t served until 9:00. We like to eat early; usually 6:00-7:00 so that was late for us we like to start our day early, especially on vacation.( we do realize that is fine for most people)
Cape May is beautiful; we would both like to go back again, perhaps another season.
I would recommend Beauclaire's for people that are looking for that old time B & B experience that would like to be staying close to the beach and easy access to all. It was clean and comfortable and you will feel very welcome. Great location too!
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Leo and Karen

We only stayed over one night, but had a great time. The house and room were very clean and comfortable. The zucchini ricotta casserole for breakfast was really good. Joe was very knowledgeable and gave us an excellent pointer to Tish's restaurant. The B&B itself is very well located close to center of action for shopping and bars in eastern Cape May.
