Been going for years and did it again in June 16'. We can't say enough about how much we enjoy our stay year after year. A great place to stay in the heart of Cape May just steps from the beach, shopping and all the great restaurants. Relaxing on the front porch is a must.

The Bed & Breakfast in Cape May where we had normally stayed for many years closed. We were saddened because we loved Cape May. We tried other places but were disappointed. That is, until we found the Saltwood House. Located less than a block from the beach on lively Jackson Street, and surrounded by gardens, it has the sweet and...

From my first conversation with Don on the phone I knew we made the right decision to spend our weekend at Saltwood House. He's such a friendly and pleasant guy who always does his best to accommodate you and his efforts were well appreciated by my wife and I. Where to begin....well the house is kept true to it's heritage....

Beautiful B&B. The room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The breakfasts were absolutely fantastic. Don and Eric were so pleasant and took great care of us. We could walk to the beach, shopping, restaurants and all around the historic neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again!
