We just spent a wonderful weekend stay at The Harrison. The inn itself is utterly charming. The rooms are adorable and the common rooms warm and inviting. I particularly like that the fire is always roaring and there's a bottle of brandy waiting to be enjoyed. The breakfasts were tasty and satisfying. Finally, the innkeepers were friendly and helpful. We...

My boyfriend and I came here for the first time to celebrate his birthday. We stayed in the Harrison Cottage on the 3rd floor. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and the bed was so comfortable!! We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast at the Harrison, nicely plated and the food was fantastic. The afternoon tea was a great treat - homemade...

I was given a gift certificate from bedandbreakfast.com, so we decided to look for a bed and breakfast in Cape May for my birthday weekend. The Harrison Inn immediately stood out to me as a boutique B and B. The contemporary decor that I saw online was so different from anything else I saw in Cape May. It looked fresh...

I want you to close your eyes and envision your version of the perfect B&B. Go ahead, close your eyes. Can you see it? Charming and quaint on the outside...with all of the architectural elements of a romantic,Victorian cottage. However, in this case, it is the inside that takes you by surprise.....for the inside is what really sets this particular...

My hubby and I were celebrating his birthday in Cape May. After reading others reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did. The only little problem was parking. There is only off site parking. I'm glad we went after the Meyers were stopped. But everything else was amazing. Andrew, the host made...

Charming b&b. Excellent accommodations and staff (super friendly & accomodating). Every attention to detail made for a wonderful stay. From afternoon tea with homemade treats to the gourmet breakfast served in a beautiful setting. The location is perfect (quick block to beach and easy walk to restaurants and shops). Will definitely return!

My wife and I just returned from The Harrison for a weekend getaway. Having stayed at multiple B&B's in Cape May over the last 20 years this one ranks as one of our favorite ones! This B&B is a "night and day" difference from the previous establishment called The Summer Cottage. The B&B is beautifully decorated, has outstanding service and...

We are first time Cape May goers and how lucky we were to discover such a cool B&B It was vary clean and decorated like no other B&B. The breakfasts were good and the staff knowledgeable. Heather knew Cape May like the back of her hand and Andrea treated us like we were family friends. If I had to say...

Our experience at the Harrison was everything we had hoped for. The Victorian style can be found all around Cape May, but I've never seen a place renovated to modern standards while keeping the Victorian character like the Harrison. The owners were on the premises quite often and they were extremely friendly; it's easy to tell they care about their...
