We've stayed at several B&Bs and guest houses in Cape May over the past several years, but none so wonderful as The Eldredge House. My husband and I love the coziness and privacy that this gorgeous, clean, comfortable Colonial-style home offers. The gardens are lovely and relaxing, the decor throughout is charming and full of historic, magical touches that change... More

What more could you ask for in a bed and breakfast. This was decorated so nice and it had a great location. The beds are so comfortable. The innkeeper, Todd, will go out of the way to make you happy. He is so generous. The breakfast vouchers are the best. We enjoyed full course breakfasts every day. It was nice... More

We were able to reserve a Friday night room at the last minute. Todd was very accommodating for our needs. We had booked a two night stay at an ocean front hotel, but decided to arrive early and could not get into the hotel. We had never stayed at a B&B and were pleasantly surprised. The vouchers for breakfast worked... More

This was our third visit and we can't wait to come back in the Fall. Todd, the innkeeper, is the absolute best, and makes sure you're well taken care of with all his excellent suggestions for restaurants, things to do, places to shop, etc.We always stay in the Captain's Quarters which is the largest room, giving us plenty of space...

Went for our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was perfect. Todd was such a great host and our stay was so relaxing. The room was clean, serene and comfortable. Todd was very helpful with ideas for restaurants and ideas for outings. We has such a nice time...wish we still were there!

Eldredge house is conveniently located in Cape May, but not in the midst of all the hustle and bustle. Parking was not a problem. The house is charming (while not overdone with doillies) with an interesting history. Todd was a very gracious and helpful host. We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning next year. We recommend... More

Our first visit to Cape May and we could not have picked a better B'n'B. Well located in West Cape May away from the noise of downtown revellers but a quick drive or easy bike ride to the beaches at Cape May Point, and enables you to skirt the traffic backup into downtown Cape May during the busy season.

I couldn't possibly say more about the Eldredge House! It has the most welcoming, relaxing atmosphere... not a pebble left unturned in the detail department (bottled water, snacks, beach towels, beach chairs, L'Occitane products, etc). Uniquely enough, the innkeeper is so warm and friendly, always working to make you feel as though your comfort is the most important thing on... More

My stay at The Eldredge House was just perfect! Parking is plentiful. The location is just outside town and is a leisure walk to shopping and historic sites. Todd, the inn keeper, is such a delight.
