My partner, sister and friend headed down to The Goodman House in Cape May for a quiet weekend this past June. We had a great time! The accommodations at the Goodman House were terrific. Our suite was nicely appointed and anything we needed was a request away. The staff were warm, friendly and a large part of the wonderful experience.... More

My husband and I spent Memorial Day weekend in Cape May and The Goodman House was just what we were looking for. The Innkeeper's are incredibly accommodating and thoughtful, the location is great, and the rooms are adorable. Really a wonderful place to stay, I can't say enough good things about The Goodman House!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Goodman House over Memorial Day weekend. We stayed in the top floor suite and had the entire floor for ourselves. Traveling with our mom and our 3.5 year old child, we had plenty of space with a separate room for mom/daughter and one for us, a separate living room, kitchen and dining area.... More

To start with, I thought the location was great! I had only been to Cape May once before years ago, so I wasn't really up on the layout of things. Turns out this was a good spot. Close to shopping, food and beach. This was a last minute trip with very little research done and we ended up with The... More

Everything about this location is outstanding. Location, value, furnishings, service, etc. You can even borrow beach chairs and umbrellas! (Rental fees for this in Cape May are high). Wonderful restaurant 2 doors down, beach 1 block away, Washington mall 1 block away. We stayed in Shirley Temple room. 5 open windows meant great sleeping at night, and during the day,... More

If you are headed to Cape May with a large family, it's tough to find nice accommodations with enough room for your fam while not breaking the bank. But you can meet both of these options at The Goodman House. The owner is quite nice, and provides a beautiful home on one of the most beautiful streets in Cape May... More

The spacious two bedroom suite with large living room and a washer and dryer made our winter get-away just perfect - walked to the beach and in the evening, The Merion Inn was just a few steps from our front door, we had a romantic time - Suite was perfectly appointed and gracious!
