The detail of the accommodations are numerous, meticulous and exquisite, while the decor is a true work of art along with the best breakfast in CM! Perfect location in the center of historic Jackson Street. Been coming to the Saltwood House for years and make it an annual event!

The Bed & Breakfast in Cape May where we had normally stayed for many years closed. We were saddened because we loved Cape May. We tried other places but were disappointed. That is, until we found the Saltwood House. Located less than a block from the beach on lively Jackson Street, and surrounded by gardens, it has the sweet and... More

We will be 'coming home' in a couple of weeks to our most favorite place to stay in Cape May (and we do at least 2-3 times a year). So immaculate; so comfortable. Can't wait to see Don & Erik who are soooooooooo welcoming and always make sure everything is perfect. Breakfast is ALWAYS delicious. It is awesome to be... More

From my first conversation with Don on the phone I knew we made the right decision to spend our weekend at Saltwood House. He's such a friendly and pleasant guy who always does his best to accommodate you and his efforts were well appreciated by my wife and I. Where to begin....well the house is kept true to it's heritage.... More

Beautiful B&B. The room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic. Don and Eric were so pleasant and took great care of us. We could walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants and all around the historic neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again!

Every year we come down to Cape May, we are reminded how lucky we are to have found the Saltwood House! It has become our home away from home. Don is always there to greet us when we arrive and he and Erik take great care to make sure everything is perfect for the guests. Not only is it a... More

I recently stayed at the Saltwood House. The place is old and quaint, with plenty of Victorian charm. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and the overall experience is great. The location, in the middle of Jackson Street, is the best in Cape May, with most of the fine restaurants a short distance away, the beach very close, and... More

It was the opening weekend for this first rate B&B. They didn't disappoint and everything went flawlessly, nothing was overlooked. From Don's incredible baked eggs to Erik's meticulous landscaping and maintenance. People actually think the bushes in front of the Saltwood House are fake since they are so perfect. This is one of the few B&B's on Jackson Street and... More
