This B&B was our number place to go. The breakfast is wonderful, the staff is great & the rooms are clean. Quite a lot was done to upgrade this place. The problem is that it's not being care for. We noticed that in the halls on the first floor that the flooring is starting to buckle & turn black against... More

Sometimes It's worth it, just drop everything and go. The Southern Mansion is the place we chose. It has the charm and ambiance. The staff is friendly and your morning starts with a wonderful continental breakfast. There are even a few extra food offerings on the menu. Our room was large (King bed) on the third floor. There are no... More

My wife and I took the ferry to Cape May on which we were married 20 years ago, August 29th, and spent the night in Cape May at the Southern Mansion. What a delight! From the friendly and very helpful staff, to the lush Victorian boudoir room, to the outstanding choices at breakfast, we could not have wanted more, except... More

A charming spot for a special occasion, we spent our anniversary in Cape May at this lovely place. The room was spotless and very comfortable with a nice modern bathroom. We really appreciated the outside shower room when we came back from the beautiful beach which was just a few blocks away. They provide beach chairs and towels and we... More

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.

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.

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
