“Wonderful place to celebrate any romantic occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Our stay here at the Wilbraham was everything I had hoped it would be. I surprised my love with the stay as a birthday gift and he loved it! The Mansion is beautifully decorated, the breakfast was delicious and abundant and the people that go into the running of the Mansion were helpful, unassuming and very welcoming. We stayed in Suite 203. The sage green theme and dark wood of the furnishings was very peaceful, elegant and incredibly romantic. The suite was absolutely spotless, the bed was wonderfully comfy, the bath towels were soft and plush, the fireplace very romantic, the jacuzzi was awesome and the double shower was utterly amazing! Also, the joy of being able to have a romantic midnight swim in their indoor pool was the piece de resistance! We have already decided that The Wilbraham will be our favorite place to stay in Cape May!

Room Tip: Their website was very thorough with information and pictures.

My wife and I found the Mansion by accident and boy are we happy we did. We stayed 3 amazing days in early November 2011 and it was a blast! We can't wait to go back. The staff was great and breakast and tea were amazing! We stayed in the suites and well, it's like a home away from home. The jacuzzi is amazing and actually fits two ppl rather easily! We highly recommend the Wilbraham Mansion and Inn.

Room Tip: Room 302, its down right huge!

We stayed in suite 304. It was very nice and very clean. They make you feel very welcome. There is a book of restaurant reviews writen by guests that is very helpful to find good spot to eat as there are many. Breakfast was great and alot of fun talking to everybody at the table. It was our first B+B stay so we really didnt know what to expect. The staff was around all day and as very friendly and would answer any questions we had. We didn't use the pool but it was clean and warm in the pool room. It is an easy walk to the washington street mall and nicely centered in the town between the harbour and sunset beach. We will return that for sure.

Room Tip: Suites are more like a hotel room but much nicer with jacuzzis and huge two person showers.

Our second stay at the Wilbraham was just a great as the first. Can't wait to go back. Suite room 202 was beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast and afternoon snack was delicious. Doug gives a great history of the mansion and surrounding area and makes great restaurant recommendations.Lets not forget that you are also in beautiful Cape May!

Room Tip: Any of the suites in the newer addition. Pictures of each suite can be found on the Wilbraham Mansio...

We absolutely loved our stay we stayed in the suite Room 202 or 203 the largest bathroom and it was so beautiful. My husband doesn't like the bed and breakfasts that make you feel like you're staying in someone's house in a room. This was Not the case. Our room was sooo roomy and beautiful and the bathroom and jacuzzi was our favorite. Jacuzzi was big enough for 4 people. The place is beautiful and within walking distance to town and the beach. We were very pleased and can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: We would stay in the newer section again with the suites for sure.

We returned to the Wilbraham this September because of the fantastic stay we had last year. And, as was the case with our first visit, we found the staff to be very accomodating. Doug was extremely friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and points of interest when we checked-in. The fellow travelers were pleasant to talk to and the afternoon snacks were a nice touch. Being in such close proximity to the mall and the beach we were able to walk everywhere and only needed to use the car once to drive to the lighthouse.

Sadly, there were two issues that arose that did not come up during our previous stay. We are not smokers and do not enjoy smelling smoke nor having to walk through it. Unfortunately, our arrival was met with a staff member smoking at the front door and a couple of staff members were smoking repeatedly outside the pool (as you make your way to the new building in the back) during our entire stay. We also found that our room did not have a true queen size bed as described on the website. If the prices came down just a bit, the smoking was not allowed near the doors and the beds were true to the size advertised then this B&B would be nearly perfect.

Overall, a great stay.
