“Excellent B&B in Cape May!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2012

Many thanks to Innkeepers, Bonnie & Lance who made our stay at the John Wesley Inn this summer such a wonderful experience. Not sure what was better, the accommodations where no detail was left unattended, the delicious breakfasts, delightful afternoon iced teas or fun conversations! The funniest part of our stay was learning that Bonnie and I went to the same high school-what a small world!

Looking forward to our next stay at our favorite B&B!

Decided to spend my birthday in Cape May at the John Wesley Inn. What a fabulous, beautiful Inn! The warmth and hospitality of the innkeepers, Bonnie & Lance, was truly remarkable. Bonnie's attention to Victorian detail and the antiques made the Inn an extremely special place to stay. Breakfast each morning, served by Bonnie and her terrific assistant Cindy, was divine! Although the Inn was built in the 1860's, each room had modern conveniences, was charming and immaculate. The Inn was in a perfect location, and one could walk almost everywhere. What a wonderful birthday I had in Cape May!

This was our second time at the John Wesley. Both times, our hosts, Bonnie and Lance were very gracious and made us feel right at home. The off street parking is wonderful, our rooms both times were beautiful and the breakfasts were delicious. To top all of this off, on our final night there, I was treated to piano playing and singing, bringing back some very nice memories from years ago for me. Thank you again, Bonnie and Lance for such a welcoming atmosphere, I will surely recommend it to all I know.

Room Tip: I believe in this inn, any room will be a good choice.

We've been visiting Cape May frequently over the last 10 years, and it is in Cape May that we have recognized the role of innkeeper in making a vacation choice exceptional. This is certainly the case in the gracious greeting and attentive care we received from Bonnie and Lance. No detail was too small to concern them, whether it was coordinating the logistics of our daughters' arrival, or providing utensils for our afternoon picnic. Furthermore, Bonnie and her assistant Cindy, eagerly responded to our inquiries on restaurants, antiquing and local produce stands, and we happily became acquainted with new secrets contained in this amazing destination. Add to all this some very critical facts about the Inn: 1) the rooms, common areas, and outdoor space have been beautifully and lovingly finished and maintained, 2) its location is IDEAL, being less than a block from the beach, and in the midst of historic Cape May so that one is only an easy walk from the shopping and restaurant centers as well as more remote beach fronts and lovely residential neighborhoods, and 3) as a guest of this Inn, all one's beach needs are available from comfy beach chairs to towels and coolers. In a town full of appealing B & B's The John Wesley is among the very best.

It was a first for us at a B&B and at Cape May. We chose the John Wesley Inn because it was in a convenient location. Our room was very nice with all the Victorian furnishings. It was also very clean which is very important to us. The food was excellent. Bonnie and Lance's hospitality is beyond great. Would stay there again.

This review is long overdue. Joan and I were aware we would not have a summer vacation this year due to my work schedule. So we decided to take a weekend getaway at one of our favorite shore destinations, Cape May. My son found this Inn online and we booked it for a June weekend. When we arrived we were greeted by Bonnie as she was showing others around the Inn.It is just fabulous,inside and out, warm and filled with beautiful antiques. Bonnie,took us to our room with an adjacent sun room. It was immaculate and tastefully decorated with a cozy fireplace. Bonnie is clearly a people person with a warm heart as is her husband Lance. They are what make this place special.Our weekend was filled with wonderful breakfasts,relaxing time at the beach ,sight seeing and guests that were delightful to get to know.We really enjoyed the outdoor private shower with hot water after a day on the beach,which is a short half block away. We encourage you to consider the John Wesley in Cape May . It's a Winner !!!!

From the time we parked our vehicle, until we walked out down the porch, our visit was one of the BEST Bed & Breakfast expierences ever. Bonnie and the hospitality her entourage extends is beyond reproach... Breakfast and the friends you meet at the table are above all... P S.. Buy a red mug... They are a welcome addition to any coffee drinkers ensamble... Jeannie & I look forward to our winter visit...Love you John Wesley Inn
