We had never been to Cape May and had picked The Mooring based on other Trip Advisor reviews and crossed our fingers when we chose room10 . What a lovely place to celebrate a laid back and relaxing anniversary. No need for the ac on September 30 especially with the second floor porch room with the doors open. The room was clean, elegant and very comfortable. We brought our own champagne and ordered the cheese and fruit platter to go with it. We arrived earlier than check in but they allowed us to park in their lot and took,the champagne to be sure it was well chilled. After walking around the town, we got back around 5. When we unlocked the door the champagne was on ice in the room and the cheese and fruit platter was all arranged on the tea table. The presentation was very well done....china plates,cloth napkins and a large selection of both fruit and cheese. We found out the next day the food selection and presentation was all Vince. And as another reviewer said, he is the Cape May version of Google. And breakfast did not disappoint either. Vince even wrapped up the banana bread and cookies for travel snacks as we were traveling further south when we left.
Absolutely recommend The Mooring. The accommodations and food are excellent as are the hosts. Can't imagine a better or more relaxing place to stay. And yes we will be there for our anniversary next year.
