“This Bed and breakfast is fabulous, not...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2010

This Bed and breakfast is fabulous, not only for it's location, great breakfast and accomodations, but also for the friendly innkeepers Lisa and John. They are the best hosts we've seen, working hard to make our stay in Cape May perfect. We've stayed there multiple times without ever being disappointed. They continue to maintain and upgrade the Inn so it's fresh and consistently good. I have recommended this Inn to friends around the world. Park the car and walk all over town, this Inn is midway between the beach and the main shopping area. Take a bike out for a ride, or chairs the beach, and don't forget to come back at 4 PM for wine, cheese and comfortable conversation with the other guests and Lisa or John, and maybe even one of their adorable boys!

We stay at the Bacchus Inn several times a year, and now many of our friends have also come to love this B&B! John and Lisa are almost like family and we have watched their family grow. Each room has its own special charm, from the larger and more luxurious to the smaller cozier rooms. We have stayed in quite a few of them, and have enjoyed all of them. The breakfests are always exceptional, but the wine and cheese hour is our favorite time to sit and relax on the front porch talking to new friends we've met during our stay. We always look forward to our next visit!

John and Lisa do their utmost to make you feel welcome and special. The rooms are comfortable and well designed. Lisa makes the best breakfasts that even my picky husband will eat! Thank you to John and Lisa for taking the time and making the effort to make us feel welcome, comfortable and like one of the family!

We found the Bacchus Inn online and hoped it lived up to the pictures. It did. What the pictures don't show are the innkeepers and the peace.

I found the front porch a good spot to curl up with a book. There is a fireplace there that offers a cozy spot to relax. I am a early riser so it was nice to get out of the room and go downstairs to read before breakfast. The enclosed porch is just off the dining area.

My girlfriend enjoyed breakfast the most. Breakfast was at 9:00 but John was out with coffee and muffins about 7:30. It didn't matter to me because they have a little coffee maker on the porch which I used about 6. Breakfast was great. Lisa made these savory eggs with a side of bacon and fruit. She is as good a cook as a host. She made us dinner reservations that evening.

They have bikes which were nice. It was a little cool but if you stay off the oceanfront it is not cold. Biking is a great way to get around.

We stayed in the Napa room. It looks like the picture. THe room has a lot of light so make sure you draw the blinds if you like it dark in the morning. THe room has a TV. The bed was fine.

In the afternoon they have refreshments. I enjoyed a glass of wine and some cheese. Ok, 2 glasses of wine. My friend had lemonade. We both had some cookies. John is a nice host. He knows the restaurants that gave us several options. The other couple at the inn had been there before and said they really enjoyed the innkeepers company. I have to agree.

John and Lisa will see us again.

This was the third year we stayed and the Bacchus Inn and each time has been wonderful. John and Lisa always take time to talk even though we know they have to be extremely busy. The Bacchus Inn is close to the beach and shopping areas. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed even a DVD player. There are a variety of books and DVD's. They provided beach towels, beach chairs, and bikes. I love the wine and cheese and cookies in the afternoon. It's always a relaxing time chatting with the other guest on the front porch. Breakfasts are delicious! I can't say enough about The Bacchus Inn.

We've been going to Cape May for quite a few years and this was our first time at the Bacchus Inn. We'll be back again though because it's everything you'd want in a B&B. The bedroom was comfortable, had a tv and dvd player, and just enough space. The bathroom was a little small, but not cramped, and had a shower stall with lots of spouts and options of water sprays. Our room was listed as a deluxe, and offered on site parking, but not all rooms had that included. They offered a hearty breakfast, and a daily wine and cheese gathering. This would be a perfect B&B for first-time B&B guests.

We celebrated our 10 year Anniversary at The Bacchus Inn. Our room was perfect.....clean, spacious, gorgeous furnishings and a private bath. Lisa and John are the Innkeepers who make you feel so at home. Our breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. It is very easy to understand why most of the guests are repeat guests. We will be also.
