The Peter Shields Inn is hands down the best place to stay and dine in Cape May. Outstanding service and quality in everything they do. We stayed two weeks and they made us feel like family. We will be returning every year.

There is nothing to dislike about this inn: the oceanfront location, beautiful rooms, friendly and helpful staff, wine and cheese time, free bikes and beach chairs, and delicious breakfast are awesome. We loved everything about this place. The food is rated number 1 in Cape May for good reason: incredible beef, seafood, and desserts. Service is excellent.
