Charming property with very large rooms. The bathroom has a very large shower and toilet. The sink is in the bedroom which I didn't love. Breakfast was included and was excellent. The location was great so we walked to town and the beach. Great porch.

This place is lovely!!!! So much history!! I was there for my cousin's wedding. Upon arrival I joined the other guests sitting on the gorgeous open front porch chatting as we waited for the wedding to start. The ceremony was held in the outside garden area. My only complaint here was that my heels were sinking into the ground..ALOT!!! But... More

Southern Mansion is a large B and B in Cape May. There are many rooms to choose from, some in the older original building and others in an addition. From what we saw, all of the rooms in the addition are large, nicely decorated with sitting areas, King beds and functional bathrooms. Robes are provided, no slippers. The AC works... More

Wow. Breakfast was fantastic. Shower outdoors after checkout was much better than riding home sandy after a day at the beach. Short walk to shopping area and beach. Luxurious room. Everything about the Southern Mansion was excellent.

My husband and I stayed at The Southern Mansion for two nights. The overall impression is, unlike many B&Bs, spaciousness, from the lovely grounds to our oversized room. Beautiful furnishings, very quiet and private. The daily breakfast on the enclosed porch was tasty and beautifully presented. You can park your car on the property and it's an easy walk to... More

It's all great at his Victorian Era, opulent, haunted(some say) and down right gorgeous bed and breakfast. A trip back in time with all the trimmings...lushly furnished, high ceiling rooms complete with period furnishings and a breakfast layout, which comes with the price, the likes of which i have never experienced....unlimited fresh fruit, pastries, meats, salmon, fresh juices, the best...

We were staying in the area and thought it would be nice to see a local attraction. We paid $10 for a tour. The guide knew little about the mansion, the era, or history in general. Information she provided about furniture and about the previous inhabitants was either made up or was distorted in her retelling. This is a beautiful... More

This is my first experience visiting an old mansion from the mid 1800's keeping its authenticity. Most of the pictures in all rooms are from the original owners that lived in the mansion, feels like you traveled back in time. Perfect for weddings and big events. They offer tour from 12:00 to 1:00 pm so don't miss the opportunity to... More

The grounds and gardens of this classic Victorian Inn are stunning. We had a small but adequate room in the part of the house that must have been the servants' quarters in another era. Very nice but no private veranda (which is being renovated anyway). No problem as the chairs on the veranda downstairs were very nice to relax in... More

The most romantic setting for a wedding. The staff was beyond exceptional. The wedding planner was intuitive thoughtful and had great ideas. Our officiant is also a member of the staff and the reason why we chose the Southern Mansion. The rooms were stunning, I felt like I had been transported back in time.
