    This was our first stay at The Dormer House. The staff was very friendly and helpful; the breakfast and baked goods at afternoon tea were excellent. There's ample parking (sometimes very difficult in Cape May) and it's close to the center of town. However, I...More

    This was probably our 10th time of staying at The Dormer House. It has a nice central location and is a good value. Hosts are always friendly Nd the accommodations are inviting. Tea time and breakfast are tasty and served on the porch.
