My husband and I just came back from a 3-night stay at the Southern Mansion. First, let me start by saying that the hotel appears in person as it does on the website -- it is a beautiful property, rooms are gorgeous, and the construction and renovation of the facility is top notch. Quite beautiful, actually. It's in the details...

Very nice, well kept B&B. We stayed in room 3, please be aware that there is a very large painting of a fully naked woman hanging prominently on a wall. They did advise us of this when making the reservation, to their credit. On site parking is a plus. Bed was comfortable and bedding was really nice.

My husband and I stayed at the Southern Mansion and from the moment we walked in and met Ken at the front desk, our visit was perfect. The property is a beautiful Victorian mansion that is immaculately clean and well appointed. The sitting room is large, airy and gorgeous. We stayed in Room 3, with red walls, a king sized...

My wife and I just completed a weekend stay at the Southern Mansion, and we were extremely pleased. This was our 7th visit to Cape May, and we have rented a number of different homes with other families and also stayed at a few inns and B&Bs. The Southern Mansion met and exceeded all of our expectations. We always stay...

We just completed our stay at the Southern Mansion for the first time. It was like our home away from home. The room was very, nice and clean and the bed was comfy. The staff was pleasant, the breakfast good and the grounds were well kept. Thank you for a great stay.

When we arrived at the Southern Mansion my first impression was how beautiful. The grounds were kept neat and the flowers surrounding were gorgous. ( Smell good too) When we got to the front door we rang the door bell and was greeted by Ken. He checked us in immediately ( no waiting) and he gave us a short tour...

Cape May is known for it's Victorian homes, so when my husband and I were deciding on a wedding venue for our small guest list of 65, the Southern Mansion was a no-brainer! I won't go into detail about their performance as a wedding venue other than to say they do an EXCELLENT job executing events! As for the bed...

We stayed here because of a special promotion and we have never been to Cape May. We requested a room on the 3rd floor which was just like their website said, quiet, but be aware there is no elevator so bringing up your luggage may not be so much fun. The place had a "home-y" feel. You felt comfortable wandering...

Just returned from a wonderful stay in Cape May at the Southern Mansion. This recently restored Mansion is impeccable in all respects.
