We spent a great 5 nights at the Harrison. The room was small but well appointed and very clean. Everyone was very friendly and the breakfasts were great. Th B&B is only one block from the beach and they provide beach chairs for your use. It is also very close to downtown and restaurants.

"First time guests but were made to feel like long time friends. The Harrison was perfect for us in every respect. The location is ideal for experiencing what Cape May has to offer. Hope to return annually.”

It is clean and the staff are extremely friendly. The breakfast was excellent and they give both a sweet and savory option.... More

Two things about The Harrison…. The first is it’s gorgeous! The décor is done in silvers and greys creating an elegant relaxing atmosphere with random pops of bright color that add an element of fun. It feels luxurious yet laidback. It’s also not stuffy and overdone like most of the traditional Victorian B&B’s which leave me feeling claustrophobic. The second... More
