I stayed at the Luther Ogden Inn for one night in July. There was no place to lock up my bike, but the room was nicely sized and well furnished. The television was very old, but the shower was large. A little weird having the sink in the bedroom instead of the bathroom, but it worked out nicely. Also, you... More

We spent the weekend at the Inn and were pleasantly suprised. We arrived around lunchtime and were able to check right in and start our weekend off. The check-in was quick and easy and Jan and Mark were very helpful about things to do in the area. The breakfast on the front porch was amazing - Jan is a great... More

It was great having you and your husband as our guests! ( I know exactly who you are but I am not supposed to use first names in my response) Thank you giving us 5 little circles! We look forward to your next stay and chatting on the wraparound porch! More

Two night stay this month. Room was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was superb. Located two blocks from beach - one can easily hear the ocean from the lovely porch. Also very well located for walking to restaurants and shopping. Plenty of private parking.

My husband and I needed a few days "away" to clear our heads. We had a wonderful stay at the Luther Ogden Inn. Our room (#1) was small, but plenty of space for our needs. The location is perfect - just a block off the beach, and within walking distance to many great restaurants and the Mall. Our hosts, Jan... More

Thanks so much for the 5 star review and all the nice things you wrote. I think our block on Kearney Ave. is one of the prettiest in Cape May. Even in the middle of summer or in the midst of a busy holiday weekend, it is still quiet and relaxing here. I take great pride in my breakfasts...so glad... More

We spent a delightful June weekend at the Luther Ogden Inn while in Cape May for a wedding. Mark and Jan were gracious hosts who made us feel right at home. The highlight of each day was Jan's award winning breakfasts. Her raisin French toast with assorted fresh fruit was my favorite. The room was comfortable and clean and the... More

What a beautiful B&B. Right in the center of everything wonderful in Cape May. Our innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was simply amazing. Everything was so fresh and delicious and the best was it was served to us on their amazing porch. The best wrap around porch in Cape May - honestly. My boyfriend and I were unaware... More

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the quaint Luther Ogden Inn.

This has been our favorite B&B we have stayed in at Cape May. The price is good and the location can not be beat, 2 min walk to the beach and 5 min walk downtown.
