Reviewed 5 August 2014

We spent 4 days in this lovely Inn!
Such gracious hosts,fabulous breakfasts and wine and cheese every afternoon!
The rooms were lovely and the best part was the wonderful wrap around porches to sit in the rockers and relax!

Room Tip: Look at choices. We had a suite in the back. Our adult children had a lovely room on 2nd floor

I had the good fortune to accidentally find the Bacchus Inn last August when I sought to quietly usher in a milestone birthday. Upon arriving I was warmly welcomed by John at the Inn, which was so lovely, exceeding my high expectations. The "Zinfandel" room where I stayed was beautifully decorated, cozy and CLEAN. Breakfast was a yummy start to the day, of a gourmet caliber and shared with friendly guests, many of whom were repeat visitors. Indeed, they had been staying at the Bacchus Inn every year for some time.
Well, sign me up. I'm ready to start a new tradition, visiting at the Bacchus Inn. The host and hostess are wonderful, the accommodations beautiful and the location ideal. One could easily be spoiled....or at least tempted to also make staying there a new tradition.

Room Tip: Either building is great.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful one night stay in the Bacchus Inn's Rioja Room. John was such a friendly and attentive host to us. The room was gorgeous, clean, and very cool which we loved. There were many DVD's in their collection of classics that we were able to choose from. Although we were exploring the Cape during wine and cheese hour, it seems like such a unique and special snack hour. Breakfast in the morning tasted delicious, and if you are a coffee drinker, you are in for a treat! We hope to be back as soon as we get to Cape May again! Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Room Tip: The Rioja room is a bit pricier, but is totally worth it because it comes with a private entrance, o...

John, the owner of this charming B & B, was the perfect host!
When they ran out of newspapers, he immediately jumped on his bicycle and went to a store and got more.
The location of the Bacchus Inn, on Columbia Avenue, is central to everything. If you wish, you can park your car and not have to move it again until time to leave.
Another wonderful time in Cape May.
We know we will return again!

Room Tip: I didn't mind the exercise but a word of warning: Sounds basic but, if you don't like climbi...

This Inn is clean, friendly, quaint and located 2 blocks from the beach and everything worthwhile in Cape May. The proprieter John is a gracious host who has boundless energy and he bends over backwards to make your stay memorable. The breakfast is as nice as you'll find anywhere and the 4 PM to 5 PM wine and cheese a pleasant addition (beats tea and cookies). Also, I do not believe that there is anything that John does not know about restaurants, entertainment, and such in the Cape May/Jersey Shore area. Great Place.

Room Tip: One on the lower floors but not a necessity.

We stayed here 6/24-6/26. This was our second time at The Bacchus Inn and, once again, it was perfect! The first time we stayed in Room 1, which was lovely, but this trip's Room 4 was outstanding! The bathroom was one of the largest I've seen at any B&B in Cape May. There was a bathtub with two side seats, and also had a rain shower head and a hand-held. Afternoon refreshments include a complimentary glass of wine, lemonade, coffee, tea, cookies, cheese, crackers and spreads. Breakfast the first day we had a fruit cup, cheese blintzes with a cherry topping and a side of sausage. A selection sheet is hung on the doorknob for you to fill out your preferences. Also available instead of a hot meal are cereals. Coffee, tea, juices and muffins are also offered. The second morning our breakfast was a yogurt and fresh pineapple parfait and herbed eggs with a side of the best bacon! John, the owner, is there all the time. He is friendly, personable and has the answer to any question you may have - from where's the best place to eat to what happened to the movie theater. We definitely will go back to The Bacchus.

Room Tip: I rated the sleep quality average because I like fluffy pillows. If you want a large bathroom, you...

Welcoming and easy-going is the vibe at Bacchus Inn. Perfect B&B for a one-nighter. Close to everything and a porch outfitted with rockers to appreciate the cool summer breezes and a good book. Our room was pretty though small. The room air conditioner proved a challenge to sleeping due to the loud whir and our inability to open the window for the cool night air. We purposely chose a small room and would chose a larger room and off-street parking for a longer stay.

The afternoon wine is good as is the breakfast. Worth the stay.

Room Tip: Choose a larger room for a more than one-night stay. All are beautiful and not encumbered by street...
