Our Reservation Policy

Please note that we are currently taking reservations for dates after June 1, 2020. If you have a reservation prior to that date, we will be in touch to help you reschedule for another time. 

If you have a confirmed reservation between June 1 and June 22, 2020, and you are still planning to visit Cape May during this time, we want to ensure you that we will be taking every possible precaution to make your stay is a safe one. If you are unable to travel on your reservation dates due to health concerns, we will work with you to find an alternative date for your visit later this summer or fall. And if you are unable to travel then, we will hold your full deposit amount for a future stay anytime in the next two years.

If you have a confirmed reservation after June 22, 2020, we are looking forward to seeing you this summer! And we will be taking every possible precaution to make sure that your stay is a safe one. If you are unable to travel on your reservation dates, please let us know 14 days prior so that we can work with you to find an alternative date for your visit. If you do not contact us 14 days prior to your scheduled arrival, our standard cancellation policy applies. Please see below for more information. 


Minimum Stay
Reservations require a three or two night minimum stay based on the Inn calendar.

Three night minimum stays are required beginning Memorial Day weekend through and including the entire month of September. If less than the three night minimum is available for any given room, it may be booked for one or two nights, depending on what is available.

Two night minimum stays are required for all weekends throughout the year other than specified above. Weekends are defined as Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday night.


SHOULD THIS OCCUR, WE RECOMMEND YOU CALL THE INN, as previous reservations may have been booked leaving a less than the minimum required stay between the previously made reservations.

One night stays are available Monday through Thursday between the second Monday in October and the last Thursday of June. We require payment in full for all one night stays. 

Our room rates are for double occupancy, except for San Juan Bautista which can accommodate up to four persons. There is a $40 per night additional fee, plus taxes, for each additional guests occupying San Juan Bautista.

In the interest of good hospitality and customer relations, we understand that cancellations are sometimes unavoidable. We often try to reschedule cancellations off-season if we can re-rent the room. We absolutely cannot reschedule on a weekend or prime season. Please remember ALL deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. There will be no refund for a cancellation made within 14 days of arrival and the second deposit will be charged to your credit card if we are unable to rebook the room.  Cancellations made prior to 14 days of your arrival will receive a return of deposit in the form of a credit, less $50.00 for processing. Late Arrival/Early Departure and or Inclement Weather Cancellations: Sorry NO REFUNDS or CREDIT for unused room nights or services will be given in the case of a late arrival or early departure or cancellation due to inclement weather.

Guest Comfort
For the comfort and health of all, we maintain a strict SMOKE FREE environment. SMOKING IS PROHIBITED IN ALL ROOMS, THROUGHOUT THE INN AND ON ALL GROUNDS AROUND THE INN. We recommend a casual walk through our beautiful neighborhood for any guest who would like to enjoy a cigar or cigarette or pipe. This policy is STRICTLY enforced. If a guest has been smoking in the Inn or any residual effects are found from smoking an automatic $500.00 fee will be charged to your credit card to ensure clean up, smoke residue removal and to cover the cost of putting the room out of service until it can be properly cleaned.
