“Linda Lee and it's sister Bedford Inn are a great place to stay in Cape May”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Stayed at the Linda Lee in Cape May in December of 2012. Have stayed in Cape May many times in the summer but this was our first winter visit.It was fantastic. Seeing all the Victorian homes decorated for Christmas was a blast (the whole town decorates to the nines). The Linda Lee is gorgeous and is an authentic Victorian era B&B in every detail. Archie Kirk treated us like royalty. It was a slow weekend so we had breakfast at Archie's other property (the Bedford Inn) but it was the same great breakfast thoughtfully prepared by Archie. I highly recommend a visit to Cape May and the Linda Lee or Bedford Inn.

We stay at one of Archie Kirk's properties whenever we get the chance! The Linda Lee is our favorite spot in Cape May to stay. Archie always makes sure that we have everything that we need for our stay and is very accomodating. His closeby property The Bedford is as beautiful as the Linda Lee and is well worth a visit while you are in Cape May. This is a great town with the Linda Lee being a great example of a classic victorian bed and breakfast. Higly recommended !

Room Tip: All of the rooms are clean and well kept.

My fiance and I stayed here for three nights this week. The B&B is in a perfect location -- close to the beach and near the Washington street mall. The owner, Archie, is super helpful and friendly and will tell you anything you need to know about Cape May. The hotel is also charming,clean, and has ample parking for the patrons.

Archie served a quality hot meal every morning which was a perfect start to a long day of relaxing. it's pretty much exactly what one looks for in this kind of place and I'll definitely stay again.

Staying in a Victorian B&B in Cape May is such a unique experience. It was our first time there and we really enjoyed it. It's so peaceful and relaxing. The beach was only 3 blocks away and also restaurants and shops were all within walking distance. If you want to go a little further, then just rent a bike (bike rentals are also 2-3 blocks away). So the location of the Linda Lee is great.

We stayed at the Linda Lee with friends and had two rooms: Stephanie's room and Julie's room. Stephanie's room was on the first floor next to the entrance. It was spacious including a sofa and fireplace, had a small TV and DVD player, its own shower and toilet and even a small fridge. The bed probably needs some repair, as the headboard was squeaking quite a bit (but we put a pillow behind the headboard and it was fine). What is different with this B&B is that the breakfast is served at the Bedford Inn, which is two blocks walking distance from the Linda Lee. Breakfast there is quite simple: Coffee, tea, bread pudding, some cake pastry, bacon and some fruit. If you are looking for eggs, pancakes, french toast, waffles, so a heavier breakfast, then I suggest to find another breakfast place. But it is sufficient to start the day. The porch of the Linda Lee is also nice for hanging out and relaxing.

Lastly, our host Archie was really friendly and helpful. He explained to us what to do and how to get around and was just wonderful. I really recommend the Linda Lee B&B.

Lovely old Victorian Inn on great street near the ocean. Could walk to great restaurants and especially loved the early morning walk on the beach boardwalk where many people were watching the sun come up. Loved our room with the stained glass window. Room needed some small repair attention and bathrooms could use an update. Porch was great for sitting and people watching. Alicia served a lovely breakfast. She is a very enthusiastic and energetic young woman. We don't really need the personal information which she felt important to share, but otherwise very helpful.

This is my first time staying at a bed and breakfast.

Pros:
Location - could walk to everything
Clean
Amenities: Breakfast served every morning. coffee, tea, fridge available all day, Snacks served between 4 and 5, everything fresh cooked, Small porch to sit on (two tables, 7 chairs). Beach chairs and towels available
Note: Breakfast was not huge, but it was satisfying and tasty
Staff: Alicia was very friendly and helpful with anything that we needed (including reservations and tips on the town)

Other:
Bikes available but many were dated and some seats were to worn to use.
Another review called out some dated items. Yes there were some dated items, small peals in wall paper or rust in a sink, but it was clean and none of this bothered me.

Overall, this was my first B&B experience but I would recommend the linda lee to anyone looking to get away to Cape May.
Parking: Available but very tight. Bring a small car or park in the street.

Note: One room has its bathroom across the hall from it, the others have bathrooms in their room, so depending on your wants consider that when you book your room.

My husband and I agree with almost all of the earlier reviews. Alicia is energetic, caring, and loves her job. As she matures and learns to listen more and share less personal information, she will be an outstanding inn hostess. Her family is fortunate to have her running the Linda Lee.

The Linda Lee is in a perfect location and is a great building. As noted earlier, it needs a new coat of paint. The rooms also need updating. The air conditioners are old, the water pressure is weak, and the furnishings are faded. The mattress was old. Although we preferred the basic bed to the high four-poster beds that you need a stool to get into.
The rooms are clean because Alicia is constantly working.

The breakfasts are good, but not as amazing as other B&Bs. She does make an effort to have an egg dish, a muffin, meat, and fruit each day so there is something for everyone. It is nice to be able to serve oneself rather than be at the table at a specific time.

Room Tip: Light sleepers may prefer rooms in the back.
