I must admit, this way my first stay at a guest house of any type, so i didn't know what to expect. I arrived and was immediately greeted by Nick, who was managing at the time of our check in He helped me with the luggage and settled us into our room. The room itself was large for the price....

Spent a 3 day weekend and couldn't have been happier. Located just a block from the beach in one direction and a block from the shopping area in the other direction. Suite was large and clean. Innkeepers were friendly and helpful. Hope to visit again next year.

Pulling up to the Goodman house, we discovered just how great the location truly is, walking distance to the mall and the beach! The house is situated on a beautiful tree lined street with the historic clanking of horse carriages, and a wrap around porch. Then we were greeted by Nick and Pat who made us feel immediately at home... More

This is our first time renting in Cape May after several years of camping. We couldn't have chosen a better place. I love the wrap around porch, the close proximity to the beach and the generous (almost concierge-level) service offered by Patricia, Ed and Nicholas. I think this will become a new tradition for us...

With just a few days notice I set out to find a cozy, centrally-located hide-away, (with a kitchen) to show off the romantic & magical city of Cape May to a visiting friend. Nick from The Goodman House responded immediately and made the process completely painless. He, Pat and Ed were gracious and the property was in the "perfect" location,... More

My goal was to find an affordable, comfortable and charming place to stay for a night or two in Cape May for our 2nd wedding anniversary that we could enjoy as a young married couple (we're ages 30 and 32). The Goodman House was ideal for us. The location was less than 2 blocks from the "mall" (outdoor shoppes and... More

Our family's stay at the Goodman House last week was a great experience. First of all, while the house is a bit tight, it's very homey and comforting when you first walk in. The rooms are neat and organized and almost everything you need is easy to find. The house has wireless internet, which makes it easy to use your... More

We have vacationed all along the Jersey shore and the Goodman house, in Cape May, was by far the most enjoyable mini vacation of all. We planned this trip very last minute and despite our lack of planning, it turned out to be the perfect vacation for our family. The owners of the Goodman house were wonderful. From the time...
