Saltwood House
Ranked #15 of 40 Cape May B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 October 2012

Where to begin? The Saltwood House is so elegantly furnished and decorated. Don is a gracious and accommodating host. With one site parking, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Just a short distance to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious. Wish we had more time to enjoy the rockers on the porch, maybe next time.

We stay at the Saltwood House twice a year. We just returned from another great experience there. Don is a gracious and friendly host, the breakfasts are great and both Don and Erik go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. Having such a great location and on-site parking make the 3 hour drive worth it. Can't wait for our next stay in May.

Room Tip: The suite on the top floor is huge

The Saltwood House is THE "must stay" B&B in Cape May! Not only are Don and Erik wonderful hosts, the Saltwood House is located just a 1/2 block to the best beach in Cape May and provides plenty of On-Site parking! In a victorian beach town where street parking is at an absolute premium and parking tickets will cost you a whopping $32, On-Site parking is a perk that shouldn't be overlooked. Being a half a block from the beach and having On-Site parking are conveniences that you will come to treasure almost as much as the terrific food and the wonderful friendship of Don and Erik! Don't miss a chance to experience the best that Cape May has to offer.

First time staying in Cape May, we hoped for a lovely Victorian and certainly found one. Don was so welcoming and helpful. Bed was very comfortable and breakfast lovely. Location perfect. Walk to everything. Another guest told me they have stayed in many other places in Cape May and this is by far the best. Will definately return.

Don & Erik are exceptional innkeepers. This was our first visit. We felt welcomed, informed, & well cared for. The house is lovely & immaculate. I can't begin to say how wonderful it was to rock on the charming front porch. We had an unusual room, in that our private bath was just across the hall. It wasn't a problem & didn't bother us a bit. Considering the prices in Cape May, we found Saltwood House an exceptional value. And the breakfasts..... well, they were fabulous. Thank you Don & Erik, we'll be back.

We just stayed for a week at the Saltwood for the 3rd consecutive summer (we've been there twice offseason, too), and it's still tops in every category for me. We booked for next year too, as the Saltwood has become a tradition for us. Cape May, the beach, the Saltwood, Don and Erik, the restaurants, the shopping... have all created such sweet summertime memories for us and we will keep coming back!

My partner & went to the Saltwood House for the first time in 2010 & have been going back every since (twice each year). We just got back from a 6 day stay & I would not think of staying anywhere else in the area. Everything about it is the same; it is STILL immaculate (including the beach chairs & towels that are provided); breakfast is STILL absolutely delicious; Don & Erik are STILL wonderful, if not more. (you can see my original review 8/15/2010). If you are lucky enough to get a reservation here, you won't be sorry. The only problem is you won't want to stay anywhere else if you are not lucky enuf to be able to get a reservation here for your next stay.
