About the Mission Inn

  • RaymondSusan

Susan Babineau-Roberts and her husband Raymond Roberts cordially invite you to experience the charm of their California Spanish Mission Style Bed and Breakfast. You will find The Mission Inn guest rooms to be bright, airy, tastefully decorated, creative restful place for the weary traveler as was the purpose of the original twenty-one (21) California missions.

Susan and Raymond purchased The Mission Inn in June 2002. After opening to summer guests from day one, Susan began taking careful notes on how to improve the guest experience. Through the fall, we studied the building and grounds she wanted improved. In October 2002, Susan took a trip to California to visit all 21 of the original missions, from San Diego to San Francisco to immerse herself.

A Luxury Inn for Romance and Relaxation

Months later the significant improvements began. Each guest room became themed after one of the missions, using colors and designs Susan had observed on her trip. The common areas were themed to reflect the warmth of the missions.

Each year additional improvements are planned and implemented. Return guests are always finding the "little changes" that reflect the attention to detail so noticeable at the Inn.

The Mission Inn was built in 1912 by Nelson Z. Graves inspired by his turn of the century business trip to the Pacific Coast. The Mission Inn is a perfect example of California Spanish Mission architecture. Its stained glass window, Flemish gable and pergola veranda contribute to the warm feeling of this al fresco house and is a contributing architectural style to Cape May's National Historic Landmark designation.
