You could not find a cleaner B&B in Cape May or more gracious, proud owners (gotta love Fred and Joan). .A beautiful t home away from home. The location was ideal being a block from the beach and shopping.

My grandson and I just spent two nights at the Gingerbread House. We just love it there! It's so close to the beach and beach chairs and towels are provided. The breakfasts are amazing. Joan always puts out more food than we can possibly eat, but it does save on the cost of lunch because we just aren't very hungry... More

Staying at the Gingerbread House was such a lovely experience. Fred and Joan make you feel like family when you are there. The service is wonderful, the rooms are clean and cozy. The location can't be beat, a few houses away from the beach and boardwalk. I absolutely recommend staying here and treating yourself to a wonderful experience.

Joan and Fred always make you feel welcome when you arrive at the Gingerbread House.Joan's breakfasts were delicious and we always enjoy sitting and sharing stories with the other guests. You'll find the accommodations spotless thanks to McKinley who keeps things tidy and Fred, who is always making upgrades to the rooms to satisfy your needs. Just a wonderful experience... More

Stayed at the Gingerbread House with my daughter and grandsons and had the best time ever. Location provides easy walking to beach and all activities. The room was gorgeous with a front porch and large bath. Joan made us feel like family. Fred's detailed trim work and their enhancements show how the owners cherish this Victorian beauty. Will return to... More
