Two girlfriends and I went down to Cape May for a quaint bachelorette experience, and stayed in Room 1 while there. To say that Vince and Leslie were gracious hosts would be an understatement! We had a late arrival on Friday night, and getting in and settled was seamless. We met Vince on Saturday morning at breakfast, where he set...

This was our first time in Cape May and we did a lot of internet research on b&bs before reserving. The Mooring was the only accommodation that offered a discounted room rate and a bottle of wine for restaurant week, which was the main reason we chose it. We were extremely pleased with our choice! Part of the deal included...

As usual, our trip to the Mooring was relaxing and rejuvenating. Always a pleasure to see Leslie and Vince. They always make sure we feel at home and are there to help with anything we need. We have been staying in Room 10 for many years now, and always enjoy coming back to our romantic little getaway. We always recommend...

This was our first trip to Cape May and our first stay at the Mooring and it won't be our last! We found The Mooring by reading the excellent reviews that have been posted on Tripadvisor. The Inn is a beautiful victorian with a welcoming front porch with rockers that invite you to sit and stay a spell. We stayed...

We had never been to Cape May and had picked The Mooring based on other Trip Advisor reviews and crossed our fingers when we chose room10 . What a lovely place to celebrate a laid back and relaxing anniversary. No need for the ac on September 30 especially with the second floor porch room with the doors open. The room...

This was our second visit to this lovely, eclectic B&B in beautiful Cape May, NJ. It is located a block from the beach and is an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Owners Vince and Leslie do everything possible to make your stay relaxing and effortless. We stayed in Room 8, which is a suite with access to the 2nd...

The Mooring is one of the few B&Bs in Cape May that was more about 'living' well for a few days than about showing off its Victorian chatchkes. The place is lovely to look at and very sound to be in - everything about the building is well maintained, quiet, comfortable and pretty. Yet, it is like being in a...

Vince and Leslie are the perfect hosts in their beautiful Victorian B&B just one block from the beach and central to all activities and restaurants. Be sure your room has a parking spot as parking in this part of Cape May is a premium. You can park your car and leave it and walk just about anywhere you need to...

For the past 3 years my husband and I have come here for my birthday and we have agreed that we would never want to stay elsewhere! Vince and Leslie are so wonderful and hospitable. We love the rooms (onsite parking - huge advantage!) and the proximity to the beach and restaurants/mall is perfect because it's easily walkable yet far...

We had a very nice stay at the Mooring. It was incredibly close to the beach and the owners were very friendly. We stayed in a standard room, which was decently sized but no television. We also had to find street parking, which was sometimes difficult as it was so close to the beach. We rented bikes on the street...
