How to Get There

The Southern Mansion
720 Washington Street
Cape May, NJ 08204 United States



So disappointed when we arrived to take a tour of the mansion. We have been coming to Cape May for many decades and try new places to stay. We had contemplated staying here this time but ended up at another beautiful b & b instead. Decided we would tour this for future stay. Tour is $10 per person. Parked and rang front door as there are no directions any where. Man who answered was curt and abrupt and told us we could not park there for tour as it is for guests. Yes, we wanted to take one. However, after that exchange, we left and this is one place we will not take into consideration when we return. Very poor response to us and we will go somewhere else. Seriously no parking even if you pay for the tour and rude person. Definitely not what we were expecting.

Get away

From arrival to departure, staff and accommodations were awesome! Ken and Denise made the stay enjoyable. We stayed in room 6, and it was beautifully furnished and very clean. The Mansion is breath taking with the original furniture. Breakfast is wonderful ( baked muffins, scones, croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt, juices, and salmon) and includes ordering an entree. Shelia, our server was friendly, attentive and helpful . Do not miss the sunset at Sunset Beach. It is gorgeous! Be sure to eat at the Lobster House. It was excellent. We will be back!

Nice Weekend Getaway

My husband and I picked the Southern Mansion for a weekend getaway based on the good reviews. The mansion is beautiful inside and out with pretty well maintained landscaping. Check in was easy Ken and the other women were friendly and helpful. Our room was as described with a comfortable king bed. Bathroom was also nice. Plenty of parking . We took the house tour with Ken which was fun and interesting. We had a good experience and will come back again.

A few things that could be improved:

*Replace Quaker instant oatmeal packets with whole oats.
*Almond/soy milk alternatives for vegans and lactose intolerant people.
*Tea/coffee available earlier than 8:00am for early risers.

*Have tea/coffee with snacks available all day in breakfast area. (There was only lemonade and ice tea. By accident we found some really good cookies, crackers,cheese, veggies, and dip in the ballroom.)
