The Mission Inn
In Cape May, the Bed and Breakfast capital of the world, there is one that stands out from the rest-The Mission Inn. The Mission Inn offers travelers a totally different look in a time honored approach to relaxation. As the sun dips and a gentle breeze kicks up, the sleepy shadows of the Southwest welcomes you to The Mission Inn.
The Mission Inn with its sweeping verandas is one short block from the Atlantic Ocean. Inspired by Nelson Z. Graves’ journey to the Pacific Coast at the turn of the 20th century, the Mission Inn is a perfect example of California Spanish Mission Architecture. Its stained glass windows gracing the dining room, Flemish gable, and latticed veranda contribute to the warm feeling of this al fresco house.
The Mission Inn offers you the grandeur of the Gatsby Era. For many years the Inn had been a mecca for Hollywood film stars and Broadway show people. Enjoy the same ambiance as Tyrone Power, Erroll Flynn, Diana Barrymore, Gloria Swanson, and Robert Preston. If the walls could speak they would murmur a century of her guests’ colorful secrets.
The Inn is blessed with spacious, sunny rooms. Enjoy fresh coffee and teas, accented by the aroma of our bountiful breakfasts. Take a walk to the beach or onto the boardwalk where you may be greeted by morning joggers, bird watchers and bicyclists. Stroll along Cape May’s quiet tree lined streets, which feature unique architecture, historic sites, and fragrant and colorful flower gardens. Return to The Mission Inn’s latticed pergola or the enclosed west solarium and enjoy a complimentary refreshment before dinner. Meet your fellow guests and share the day’s most memorable moments, a story, or just sit back and relax on one of our many comfortable arm chairs or sofas.
At The Mission Inn, hospitality begins with your call. Come and enjoy the enchantment and romance.
