Still our go-to place to stay after many years. Second time this year. Well-maintained and constantly updated, the Mooring is in a class by itself. Individual breakfast tables, so you don't have to make nice with strangers before you have your coffee. Amazing, creative breakfast choices [always three!] You won't be disappointed!

The Mooring is home away from home. We love its location & close proximity to the Washington St. Mall. The rooms are very clean, frequently updated, & tastefully decorated by talented innkeepers, Vince & Leslie. They offer the choice of a sweet or savory breakfast daily, in addition to fruit, baked treats fresh out of the oven, & yogurt. Leslie’s dishes are creative, delicious, & served with great presentation. Her chocolate filled muffins are to die for! Kitchen on the first floor is always stocked with tea & coffee and has a large fridge for storing beverages & leftovers. Towels provided for the beach which is a short walk away & a wash line to dry your suit. Innkeepers Vince & Leslie are wonderful people who go out of their way to make your stay a great one-thanks for the watermelon & beta Vince. They are knowledgeable about all things Cape May & great resources for dining. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended for an additional 2 days. Our request was handled enthusiastically, quickly, & easily. Can’t wait to return for some “Moose time.” Love this B&B!

We enjoyed another long weekend at The Mooring in Cape May. Vince and Leslie are the perfect hosts. Wonderful breakfasts, well-appointed and comfortable rooms, and great recommendations for restaurants and what to do in Cape May. September brought us crowd-free beaches, warm water, and great beach days. The Mooring is worth visiting!

This is our 5th stay here at the Mooring and it just keeps getting better. Leslie and Vince are the most welcoming innkeepers we have met. The food is amazing , abundant and full of flavorful chooses everyday! And no communal breakfast table here ! Breakfast is served daily in the dining room at individual tables geared to your party size. Vince plays host making you feel like a long lost friend stopping by for a visit , while Leslie cooks up the most tasty breakfast menus. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, all with private bathrooms , most with off street parking. We recommend rooms 8 or 10 as the have their own front porch, with rocking chairs and cool ocean breezes.. sit back relax and let your stress wash away. Any one who grew up at the beach will appreciate the enclosed out door showers for a quick splash down after a day at the beach. Speaking of the beach , it’s a block from the Inn.. most of the best restaurants are within walking distance. We are already planning our next trip here , and as long as Leslie and Vince are the Innkeepers the Mooring will be our Cape May home away from home !

We've now stayed at the Mooring B&B 7-8 times, maybe more. We've stayed at several other B&B's on and around Columbia Ave and, although you really can't go wrong with any of them, the Mooring B&B has become our favorite. What do we like about it, you ask? - Great hospitality. We love seeing Vince out on the front porch waiting for us when we pull in! He and Leslie just do a great job keeping the house and grounds looking great. - Many rooms come with parking spot. Invaluable in Cape May. - Location: One block from the beach, the promenade, restaurants, etc. It's right in the middle of everything, but it's Cape May, so it's quiet, too. - Delicious breakfast: Leslie makes a nice variety at breakfast with fresh fruit, baked goods, one sweet option (i.e. stuffed French toast or similar) and one savory option, like an omelet with guacamole and pico de Gallo + really delicious yogurt with local honey, fresh fruit and granola is available every day. Our favorite room in all of Cape May is here, too, so we don't look anywhere else and we reserve well in advance to make sure we get to stay right here. Until next time...
