“A Victorian Getaway”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

This is our new "clubhouse" in Cape May. Archie and his staff do everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The breakfasts are absolutely fabulous (decadent French toast, pineapple crumble, Cape May Eggs ... just leave your calorie counter at home!) and tea in the afternoon (a fresh baked good, a savory snack, and tea and wine) is always a welcome break in the day. Rooms are pretty without being fussy, an the location is great.

Room Tip: The second-floor rooms in the front get keys to the upstairs porch!

Simply fantastic! Comfortable and rustic. Romantic weekend. The innkeeper, Archie, was very friendly and went well out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. He even made some great recommendations for dining around town. Would HIGHLY recommend this B&B!

The warm of the Bedford Inn made a squally October comfortable and cozy. The owner and staff were accommodating and friendly. The inn gracefully wore some signs of age. The dining room was adorned with an outstanding mural of the area that needs to be viewed by all.

The Bedford is in a great location -- 1 block to the beach & 3 blocks to "downtown" so we parked our car and did not move it for three days. The interior is very clean and well cared for -- our room had a very noisy window unit air conditioner and the bed was just fair.The breakfast was good but very basic( we went out for breakfast the second day) Archie ,the owner, was very friendly and helpful but I think a bit overwhelmed running a second B& B two blocks away. The outside needs some work and the rocking chairs were not very comfortable on the front porch. All in all it was a fair experience in a great town -- I would likely try another B&B if I returned to Cape May

Just returned from a couple of nights at the Bedford Inn in Cape May. Great location: easy walk to the restaurants in town, and about a block from the beach. We appreciated being able to use beach chairs and beach towels from the Inn. Our room was clean and charming. Archie makes a delicious breakfast. And we loved coming back to the Inn after an afternoon on the beach to fresh lemonade and homemade cookies!

spent 4 nights at the Bedford 1st visit to Cape May , found the Inn to be charming and well appointed, The breakfast is excellent and the Inn keeper Archie was very friendly and informative about the town. No doubt we will stay here again.

Ps ask Archie to make his Pistachio Muffins they are the best !

We have been coming to the Bedford Inn for 8 years now and each time it gets better. The rooms and the inn itself are clean, the support staff is friendly and efficient and the breakfasts are outstanding. Also, the inn is a short 1/2 block walk from the beach, with complementary beach chairs and towels. Archie, the innkeeper, is responsible for this wonderful inn. It is one of the (many) highlights of going to Cape May.
