“A lovely mini-vacation”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The Gingerbread House is a great place to stay if you find yourself in Cape May, NJ! Fred and Joan were extremely accommodating and helpful in helping me put together a very last minute weekend away. Everyone was very friendly, the food was delicious and our room was extremely comfortable and clean. I highly recommend The Gingerbread House if you're looking for a great B&B!

We had a short visit last weekend and stayed with Fred and Joan, I can't say enough how much I enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable and the hospitality was excellent! The walk to the beach and to the walking mall was short, everything conceivable was provided.

Room Tip: Some rooms do have a shared bathroom, however it is ALWAYS clean and tended too. I didn't find i...

We stayed with Joan and Fred this past weekend.

The home is charming and warm.

Less than a block from the beach.

Breakfast is A M A Z I N G.

Room was quaint and extremely clean (I have an issue with my bare feet on carpet in hotels and I had no issue here)

I cannot wait to go back!

The location was absolutely the best possible-restaurants, beach, shopping, and sites to visit. Breakfast was delicious and fun meeting other guests. Our hosts were so welcoming! Highly recommend the Gingerbread House. We will definitely stay there next time.

I can't seem to find the right words to describe how fantastic our stay was at this charming, immaculately maintained little gem of a bed and breakfast. The warm welcome from the owners Joan and Fred instantly made you feel at home. They always went out of their way to do little extras! (Bisquick ice refills!) The friendliness and hospitality of the other staff was as exceptional ! No detail overlooked, everything was clean and cared for. Would definitely recommend, hands down wonderful location, 1/2 block to beach, awesome outdoor shower, beach chairs and thick luxurious towels for your use. This isn't just your typical b& b, this is a boutique B&B! The for was also very good, hearty full sized breakfasts!

Had a lovely stay at cape may. Great location, kind inn keepers, clean facilities. The only complaint was breakfast, only one hot dish offered and served between 9-930. Otherwise, great goodies (brownies, cookies) left for guests in parlor room. Would recommend without hesitation

Charming inn and a great location. Quick walk to restaurants and beach. Rent a bike across the street and explore the quaint streets. Well equipped rooms and helpful inn keepers. Would definitely stay again.
