My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Mainstay. What a beautiful bed and breakfast, with great hospitality and delicious chocolate chip cookies! We enjoyed the convenient and short walk to all parts of the downtown area. Great place.
Just what we were looking for.....great room, parking available, and an easy walk to downtown. The staff was terrific, breakfasts were very good, and the common areas couldn't be more reminiscent of days gone by!
The Mainstay is such a lovely inn. Our room was beautifully decorated with a nice sitting area. I loved the beautiful living room with beautiful decor and very high ceilings. The staff and the innkeeper displayed such warm hospitality! We will definitely be back!
Nice room with a private bath and plenty of room. The TV could have been bigger and it would have been nice to have a small coffee/snack table. Staff was friendly and the location was great, a little more than a block from the beach and a short walk to the Washington Street Mall for dining and shopping.
The Mainstay will now be my favorite inn to stay at (for now it will have to be only when I travel without my son, who is under 13) after 40 years of coming to Cape May. Shane (sp?) was able to accomodate me and my sister on about as short notice as possible after our reservation at another place unexpectedly fell through. We felt so welcome after what had been an unfortunate experience and she made check in super easy at completely stress free. From the awe inspiring decor and high ceilings, to relaxing on the porch meeting some nice people, to lovely tea and breakfast, Mainstay made for a perfect trip. If you are nimble you must climb the ladder to the widow's walk, which is beautiful and quiet (but you can hear the ocean and the trees creaking in the wind). It has a padded bench with pillows and binoculars so you can sit and read or stare out the window.…
