“Great Weekend Getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2012

My husband and I stayed in the Walt Whitman Room - we expected it to be small, but were surprised at just how small it was. Fortunately, we didn't need a bunch of space because we were really relaxing and enjoying some down time. We would definitely stay again, but next time we will definitely get one of the bigger rooms. Breakfasts were delicious - and proportions were good because i was not tempted to overeat.

Room Tip: The Walt Whitman room is very small, but cozy, and if you don't plan on moving around alot, it i...

The best part of the stay was the breakfast. The breakfast was home made and it was super delicious. I like the fact we can get free lemonade, popcorn and candy. They had old movies for the guest, a nice hammock out in the patio and a hot tub. The bathroom had a nice supplies for the guest. Only three things I would recommend is renovating the bathroom. Second is next to a crumpy place. Third it's a little pricey for where it's located. This place as nice!

A last minute trip was made possible by the kindness of Todd who was helpful and accommodating to our late arrival. We rented a one bedroom suite with a daybed for one night May 2012. Maybe because it was the weekend before Memorial Day that explained the great rate we got at the last minute. Within a mile of the beach, we found this house to be well equipped with attention to detail. The bedroom had a small master bath with a shower and toilet in a separate room with a corner sink in the bedroom. It's amazing how compact the place was yet it didn't feel cramped. It had everything we needed. A round table in the eat-in kitchen gave us room to spread out. I would suggest the fridge be plugged in prior to guests arriving. Our son occupied the front room with the day bed being comfortable with the added bonus of a second television (thank you!). Breakfast the following morning was for an additional fee of $20 for the 3 of us. Although short on protein, the food was well prepared with nice presentation and attentiveness. The candy jars in the lobby were a nice touch. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay there again. We highly recommend this delightful B&B!

Room Tip: The upstairs suite has an eat-in kitchen giving you much more room than the first floor suite that a...

We spent three days at this B&B . We were in a suite and the decor was warm and inviting. The breakfast was just great. Todd gave us suggestions for dinner that were wonderful, and hiking off the beach as well. had a great time.

stayed in the Shel Silverstein room just for one night. Very nice, bed comfortable, and I enjoyed the sink being in the bedroom
and not the bathroom. Innkeepers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Parking was on the next block.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2011

Spent 2 days in the Robert Louis Stevenson suite with my husband and son. On pulling up on the Sea Gypsy I was already dissappointed. The main house outside appearance is in need of some TLC (a good painting would help) and the neighborhood is a little rundown. The building that we were staying is directly behind the main house and that too needs help. The house next to it looks abandon and a wreck and definately brings down the appearance of the sea gypsy. The suite though clean was just ok. And lets not forget the late night (2am) loud music from the bar on the corner (good night Irenes). On the positive side the woman who took care of us and cooked our breakfast was a gem. If not for her the place would really be terrible. I would definately drive another ten miles to Cape May for a true Bed & Breakfast experience. By the way We never saw the Inn Keepers once. at 185.00 a night this was a true disappointment.

Stayed here for Labor day weekend and we loved it. We were in the Robert Louis Stevenson Suite, which has a small bedroom, kitchenette area with dining table, and living room. The location was great as others have said, far enough from the boardwalk to be calm and quiet, but close enough that it's a short walk to the beach.

Breakfast really is very nice, with home baking, fresh fruit, and a plate of hot food (could be eggs, ham, waffles, changes daily). The fresh lemonade and snack bar is a lovely touch too.

The only negative for us was that the walls really were paper thin, and we could hear the guests next to us speaking even at a low volume (and I'm sure they heard us too). This might not be the case in the main house.

But overall, a really cozy, classy spot.
