Henry Sawyer Inn
Ranked #24 of 40 Cape May B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We continue to return to the Henry Sawyer Inn year after year. The rooms are comfortable. The breakfasts and afternoon snacks absolutely delicious. Barbara and Mary, the innkeepers, are friendly and knowledgeable. The fellow guests are a pleasure to meet. There is nothing like sitting on the porch with a glass of wine in the late afternoon to enjoy the fresh air and watch the horse and carriage rides go by.

Room Tip: Every room has a personal touch.

Hubby and I stayed here recently for three nights- this is a very pretty inn, located within only a few blocks of the shops and the beach. The room was quite spacious, although I must mention that the shower was very small and a bit difficult to move around in. The bed was comfortable, the house was very clean and well- maintained, and the staff were very gracious. There were yummy snacks set out each afternoon along with two different kinds of wine to choose from, and the breakfasts were delicious. So they don't serve meat with breakfast, as one reviewer mentioned. Who cares? Meat isn't healthy anyway. There were beach chairs and umbrellas for our use, an outdoor shower to rinse off in after the beach, and off-street parking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return!

The Henry Sawyer Inn was perfect for our visit to Cape May. The inn is located in the heart of the historic district and within convenient walking distance to everything. It also has off-street parking. We were a group of three related women and we shared a suite on the second floor, which was comfortable and spacious. There are 3 floors and lots of other rooms, and some were occupied part of the time we were there, but we never heard a sound from the other rooms! Barbara, the inn keeper, is wonderful! When she's not baking goodies for breakfast and afternoon snacking, she's offering suggestions, telling Cape May history and getting information so that each person's day in Cape May is perfect. Her signature champagne glass with yogurt topped with home-made granola and then fresh fruit is a fantastic way to start the day. In addition to this, she offers all sorts of home-made breads and scones, and she'll fix waffles, pancakes or eggs. Throughout the rest of the day she offers home-made cookies, assorted nuts and tea and coffee, plus cool beverages. This is a great place to stay in Cape May. If we return to Cape May, we'll definitely return to this B&B!

Room Tip: I think any of the rooms would be fine. All the rooms have individual heating and air conditioning.

Just recently my Mom, Sister and I spent a beautiful Christmas Weekend in Cape May. The Henry Sawyer was our choice for an Inn. As the title says, this Inn was a warm hug and just what the doctor ordered for our weekend --- very clean accomodations, Barbara, the Innkeeper, who iwas just so warm, helpful and knowledgeable about Cape May and the surrounding area, and a homemade breakfast that was just delicious! Our accomodations were immaculate, there were homemade snacks offered all day and into the evening that were complimented by tea, soft drinks and wine!!! We awoke to the smell of fresh coffee and Pumpkin Pancakes --- what a great way to start your day! The breakfast was very filling and delicious, we started with juice, coffee, fresh baked goods and fresh fruit was presented on the the table as a starter. Then came a yogurt parfait, and a choice of three different breakfast entrees. It just doesn't get any better than this. The Inn was beautifully decorated so that we could "kick-off" the Christmas Season and go home filled with Christmas Spirit to decorate our own homes. If I have to sum it up in three words, they would be, "NOT TO BE MISSED."

We are regulars at the Henry Sawyer Inn and, each visit, Barbara makes us feel like royalty. The rooms are comfortable. The breakfasts and afternoon snacks are absolutely delicious. The extras are a bonus. Most important --- we never have to think. All we do is relax and enjoy! When we want to try something different, Barbara helps us do the research. If we want our favorite "Chocolate Chip Pancakes," Barbara adds it to the menu. If we want an afternoon glass of wine, it's ready and waiting. No matter what --- the Henry Sawyer Inn is top notch! No other B&B compares.

Room Tip: Every room has its own personality. Choose based on your style.

I have stayed twice at this B & B. The staff is so friendly and accommodating! I was helped with restaurant and sightseeing suggestions, which turned out to be great. Breakfast is delicious with different breads, muffins and cakes each day as well as eggs, french toast and pancakes. The beds were comfortable and the rooms both times were immaculate. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cape May. Returning from shopping and being able to have a glass of wine before dressing for dinner is just so perfect, the owners really try to anticipate your every need.

Room Tip: The B & B is on a corner that is very quiet at night so I think any room is good, think about wh...

This is a very nice, cozy place. The breakfast was exceptional. It was a short distance to the beach and the main street - Washington str. My kids (16 and 11 yo) loved it. Barbara, the owner, is very accommodating. She made us feel as we're at home. You can do check out and go to the beach, then come back and take shower outside, have some drinks. I would like to visit it again.

Room Tip: If you have the difficulty to walk stairs, ask for the room on the first floor. If you have kids, 3r...
