Mooring B&B
Ranked #19 of 40 Cape May B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 18, 2011

My wife and I greatly enjoyed the Mooring B&B, mostly because it was just a little bit off the beach and its bustle. The house itself is exactly what you would expect of a Cape May B&B. And the innkeeper was very helpful. Can't say enough about the caramel French toast!

My wife and I have just returned from our July respite at The Mooring. Let me start off by saying, “It is very hard to say exactly what’s BEST about Vince and Leslie”, only because they do so many good things right. With their attention to detail, they do an excellent job of running this B&B. A stop over at The Mooring certainly has to be at the top of any one’s… ”Must Stay While in Cape May” list…. that is anyone who knows anything about Cape May B&Bs.
The original purpose of The Mooring was as a Guest House. The ambience of the relaxed and refreshing B&B atmosphere that Vince and Leslie provide is reminiscent of those days of old. This, combined with a go out of their way attitude to ensure guest satisfaction, makes The Mooring a special experience. It is certainly one that we look forward to and enjoy as much as possible. So without getting into too much more detail, go experience The Mooring Guest House for yourself, and I’ll let Leslie and Vince do what they do best, everything.

The Mooring is a better than average B&B with hosts who are very friendly and welcoming. Our 2nd floor room (#10) was beautifully appointed and had a shared outdoor porch with a partial ocean view. The window AC unit was undersized for the room and had difficulty keeping the entire room cool. The bathroom was very small and also very hot since it was on the opposite side of the room from the AC unit. Needless to say, if the weather was a bit cooler this would not have been an issue. The breakfasts were very good but not exceptional. Two standouts were the Greek Yogurt which is served daily and the blueberry french toast. Vince, one of the owners is very friendly and is often seen around the B&B. He is very happy to recommend a restaurant for dinner or just stop and chat for a few minutes. Although we enjoyed our stay at The Mooring, there are so many other wonderful B&B's in Cape May from which to choose that our next visit may include one of those.

Fantastic in every regard! Clean, comfortable and a great location. In addition, Vince, one of the owners, is a very warm, thoughtful and caring host. No question. We will definitely return here.

As usual, Leslie and Vince were the consummate hosts. We loved our stay in Room 10, which is beautiful, cozy, and romantic. We loved the new mattress and carpeting. In addition to the terrific breakfasts, both savory and sweet, the wine and cheese tasting on Saturday was great. We always look forward to our stays at the Mooring, and can't wait till the next one!

There are so many B&B's to chose from in Cape May and I think we chose wisely. Very clean, nice location - within walking distance of the beach and shopping/restaurants. You can tell the love and pride the owners have put into this old home. It is very well kept and decorated beautifully. Alot of different rooms and room sizes for everyone to chose from. They also offer great off season deals. We didn't get to see much of Leslie, but Vince was helpful, although very busy! Great cook, too!

We had an awesome time at the Mooring this weekend. This was our 5th time to Cape May to celebrate our anniversary. We like to try out many of the B & Bs in Cape May. The Mooring is one of the top B &B's we have stayed at! First of all the rooms are all very very beautiful, and the inn itself is impeccable and immaculate. The furnishings are all thoughtfully and tastefully displayed without being overly stuffy. Since the inn was build originally as a guest house, and not a summer cottage, the hallways are nice and wide and the staircase is stunning.

Vince was the perfect host - always there to answer any questions and help us with anything we needed. Leslie was very nice and helpful too. The afternoon tea and breakfasts were outstanding. Plenty to choose from and a different offering each day. Love the tables for 2 as we like to have breakfast to ourselves. Vince and Leslie thought of everything, and they make it look so easy....a good sign of an exceptionally run inn. We stayed on the top floor of the inn room 16. So quiet, comfortable, and luxurious. Of note, I am very picky and particular and I don't play around with where we lay our heads. No worries, everything surpassed our expectations. The bathroom looked recently renovated with a very stylish oversized glass shower and custom built-in sink with a hammered nickel sink. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. There was a flat screen tv with plenty of cable channels, and a great window seat overlooking Howard St. and offering a nice view of the ocean (between buildings, but still a nice view). Loved the location - we had an exceptionally warm weekend for the end of September and got to go to the beach both days. It was a very quick walk to the beach (one block), but also a quick walk to shopping and to restaurants. Loved that we had our own parking space too - a huge advantage in Cape May.

All in all I highly recommend this wonderful B &B if you are on the fence as to which one to choose. We will be back!
