“Best B&B in Cape May”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

My wife Diane and I have been coming to Cape May for many years and we have found the best experience to be at the Albert Stevens Inn. We go every year usually in August to celebrate our anniversary? This year we are going back for 4 nights to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Jim and Lenanne are the operators of this special place and let me tell you what makes it so special? First of all it is a charming B&B that has a history that they will be happy to share. It is also not in the extreme heart of Cape May but it is a short stroll and that is actually a great perk. Why? Because during the summer Cape May is very popular and can be very active and busy. The heart of Cape May including other B&B's will have limited parking. Not the case at the Albert Stevens Inn which has ample parking. Also not being in the direct center of town gives a couple a quieter night when it is time to sleep or whatever you are in the mood for? The heart of town tends to be loud at night. Also the hosts Jim and Lenanne make the difference. Breakfast is always exceptional and you have the option of dining with other guests at their dining room tables or if you prefer a more private breakfast with your love, you can do that on their air conditioned porch.
The highlite and my favorite is every day at 4 pm when they serve Refreshments! Of course my favorite is their homemade Sangria! After many years of staying there Jim shared his family recipe with me and it has become a tradition in my household. They also put out a beautiful spread of cheeses from a local cheese shop as well as crackers, breads and daily baked cookies! You can enjoy these while sitting on their covered porch with other guests and often times Jim and Lenanne will join us and share their dining or entertainment recommendations while staying there. Jim will also make dinner reservations for you and often times he is able to get you a table at popular and highly rated restaurant. At the Albert Stevens Inn Welove the Tower Suite the most, but all of their rooms have their own unique charm. We can't wait for our next visit which is less than 2 weeks away. Even though we are world travelers we find Cape May and the Albert Stevens Inn one of our most favorite destinations and you will too!

This was our first visit to the Inn, which is pretty as the picture, lovingly maintained and very well run. Jim is a helpful host, offering restaurant suggestions, making reservations, etc. Didn't see much of his wife, Lenanne, but I think she was busy in the kitchen. Even though it was a fully booked, the house was relatively quiet, and seating at breakfast wasn't crowded, although courses could seem a bit rushed. This was our first time staying in West Cape May, which is off the beaten path, but still within walking distance of the beach, shopping & restaurants. We would definitely like to return, especially off-season.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Stevens Room on the 2nd flr. which has 1 double bed & 1 twin bed. It was the on...

I go to Cape May to stay here. My family is from Ocean City, MD, so my heart is always at the OCMD boardwalk, but I typically go to Cape May instead because the accommodations at the Albert Stevens Inn cannot be matched elsewhere.
Jim and Lenanne are fantastic hosts and we look forward to seeing them as much as the downtime that the trip provides.
Aside from the breakfast (not to be missed), my favorite thing to do is to hang out on the porch and enjoy the afternoon snacks and refreshments that the hosts have prepared. It's just relaxing.
The beach in Cape May is pristine and there are plenty of beach chairs available for guests to use for the day along with bikes and an outdoor shower to wash off the sand when you're done for the day.

Room Tip: I recommend checking out their website and viewing the amenities of each room to choose the best one...

Another great stay at the Albert Stevens Inn. Jim and Lenane (owners) are so welcoming and provide just about everything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible - beach passes, bikes, chairs, towels, etc. Delicious daily breakfast and late afternoon treats always available before heading out for supper.

Rooms are immaculate, inviting and very comfortable.

The Albert Stevens Inn remains #1 in our books! We'll see you again soon!

This was our second visit to this lovely Inn. We had as fabulous a visit this time as we did last year and so enjoyed meeting all the other interesting and fun guests. Lenanne's food is gourmet and always a highlight. What really sets this inn apart from others is the owners. Jim really cares about your time there and wants to make sure it's wonderful--not just while you are in their inn. My son and I had an unfortunate bike accident across town which left me temporarily impaired. When we were asked who should be called, I gave the name of our Inn. Jim immediately drove down in his pick-up truck, gathered our bikes and took us home. It felt so comforting to be taken care of during that time and it reminded me why Jim and his inn are so special. He really cares about people and that comes across in every aspect of one's visit. Thank you, Jim and Lenanne!

The Albert Stevens Inn continues to provide the best vacation amenities. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed and include a small refrigerator at no additional cost. The staff are very pleasant and continue to keep the Inn immaculate. Improvements are made continually in order to provide the ultimate comfort to guests. A new, quieter wall air conditioner was installed in our room this year.
The location is close to all the attractions. I never need to use my car because everything is in walking distance including the Washington Street Mall and restaurants.
The Inn continues to provide the best vacation at Cape May. I would not consider going anyplace else.

Albert Stevens is a Beautiful inn owned and managed by Jimmy and Lenanne--gracious and knowledgeable hosts. All the superlatives of astute reviewers are accurate and noteworthy, so I will not be redundant. So - simply put-- this is a lovely Inn and location with great amenities. It is close to some real gems of Cape May--The Good Earth Organic Cafe, Seaside Cheese, Bella Vida Cafe, the town center, and a short bike or car ride to Cape May Point and the terrific restaurant The Red Store. It's also a very short walk to a great beach access point which provides a wonderful way to walk along the ocean to the Lighthouse and the beach. All in all-- this Inn is the best place in Cape May for doing what Italians call "dolce far niente"-- the sweetness of doing nothing. We will return!!
