Debbie and I stayed at the apartment "B" over the labor day weekend at it was fantastic... I would recommend you use their parking because almost everything is within walking distance of the Inn , we basically parked our car and didn't need it until we left. Our hosts made us very comfortable even with the COVID Pandemic going on. We stayed at the Apartment "B", which was just fantastic... not only was the bed very comfortable but we were both pleasantly surprised how quiet things were. The apartment was very clean and with the AC it made it quite comfortable in the evenings. I can't say enough about our host ether, they are both fantastic and gracious people. They both made us feel very relaxed and even though we were late getting back from breakfast the day of checking out they understood.... When we come back to Cape May we are planning to stay at the B & B just so we can try their breakfast. I would highly recommend staying at the John Wesley Inn

We recently stayed within the B&B's apartment property adjacent to their main house, and it was the perfect retreat. Extremely clean and well equipped, was a great find (on Airbnb!). You truly can't beat this location, and the hospitality you will receive from both Bonnie and Lance even though we were not true B&B guests staying in the home. Walking distance from the best restaurants, we will certainly be back!

What an incredible stay we had during Valentine’s Weekend! Bonnie and Lance are excellent hosts and this beautiful B&B is within walking distance of everything you need in Cape May. Less then a block to the beach and the convention center and only 5 min to Washington Street shops and many fine restaurants in the area. We have stayed here all times of the year and always have a great stay and find plenty of things to do around town. Bonnie’s hot breakfasts are incredible, no matter what she is cooking up. ( Belgian waffles, pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage, etc) Rooms are well furnished and extremely cozy. All rooms are great, but we love the #5 Mt Vernon. A large and cozy, romantic room with lots of privacy on the top floor. Nice warm comforter and an electric fire place for warmth and coziness during winter visits. When we first started visiting Cape May many years ago we tried a few other places to stay, but once we found the John Wesley Inn it has been the only place we will stay. Bonnie’s hospitality, the beautiful home, the incredible breakfasts and the location make the John Wesley your best choice!

Thank you, Cherngim, for your heartfelt words for the holiday season. Old Victorian homes, such as our John Wesley Inn, were made for the Christmas decor particularly from days gone by. We appreciate guests such as yourselves and look forward to your return. Health in the "New Year"....'til next time.....Bonnie

This was our first time staying in an Inn in Cape May even though we have visited Cape May for over 30 years. We were delighted we picked this Inn. It was a great location. Bonnie was delightful. The House is absolutely beautiful and we had a lovely relaxing stay completed by a beautiful breakfast the next morning. We would definitely stay there again.
