This was our second time visiting the John Wesley and Bonnie and Lance made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. The weather in Cape May was perfect. Still warm and sunny in the early fall. Bonnie served the perfect breakfast to start each day - on Sunday a fluffy Belgian waffle with homemade whipped cream and berries. On Monday, French toast with a hint of almond extract. Always with fresh fruit, lovely coffee and a side of bacon or sausage. It was to die for. Their home is beautiful and welcoming, not to mention less than a block from the beach. Such a treat to visit.

We had a wonderful stay at the John Wesley Inn! It was the perfect two night getaway after our wedding weekend. We had beautiful fall weather and were able to enjoy all that Cape May has to offer. The breakfast Bonnie made each morning was fabulous. We were a short walk from many lunch and dinner spots, the Cape May Day spa, and the beach/boardwalk. We were also a short drive from a few wineries which we enjoyed. I would highly recommend for anyone who is interested in having a relaxing/romantic getaway where they can leave the car behind and walk to all of their destinations.

Spent the holiday weekend in apartment A at the John Wesley Inn. Very beautiful interior design with 2 large bed rooms and a fireplace under the TV in the living room. The hosts were absolutely lovely and accommodating. Perfect location in a charming town and right next to the beach.

I’ll be honest, I enjoy this place sooo much I can’t wait till we come back. This was about our 5th or 6th year coming here and never get tired of our stay here or Cape May. Bonnie and Lance make you feel like you are going to stay with good friends for the week. The breakfast is always wonderful as well as the ice tea and snack Bonnie has for you when returning from the beach. I usually like to stay directly across from beach, this is 1/2 block away, I love staying here so much I don’t miss it at all. They.have mostly everything you will need for the beach too. Greatest find.
