Leith Hall was perfect for a weekend getaway. Susan and Elon were friendly and gracious hosts. They shared interesting info about the area. The breakfasts were fab. Unfortunately we didn't make it to the 4pm teas. Would highly recommend.

We had a great visit to Cape May and Leith Hall. Elon and Susan are good at making guests feel at home in their bed and breakfast and in their city. We look forward to coming back and relaxing in this Jersey shore city again.

We have stayed in Cape May many times and this B & B was one of the best. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and had amenities like a small fridge and a TV with a slot to play DVDs (something we've never encountered before). The breakfast and tea time snacks were fresh and home-made.... More

I stayed in Leith Hall with my spouse and my sister and brother-in-law were in another room. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Everything was as expected except that the food far exceeded any expectations. Elan cooks wonderful breakfasts and at 4PM each day we had tea on the porch with his delicious pastries and other creations. The location... More

Leith Hall is well maintained and rooms are clean and tidy. Elan and Susan are gracious and welcoming hosts. Breakfasts are served on the front porch, hearty and delicious. Each day at 4PM, Elan takes pride in preparing scrumptious cakes and serving with ice tea and lemonade; along with engaging conversation. The days at the Leith Hall are relaxing and... More

A great find of a bread and breakfast! Start with welcoming smiles of Violet; followed by Susan and Elan who are the gracious and hospitable owners, who prepared varied scrumptious breakfast, delectable afternoon tea; comfortable, spacious, well appointed, individually themed rooms, topped by ocean views, with beach just a few steps away! Loved our stay and will recommend highly to... More

My research into this B&B paid off. I knew the owners brought a wealth of travel experience with them and were into history. Our owners were very gracious and friendly and so knowledgeable about so many things! This made for entertaining and informative conversation while enjoying the delicious breakfasts and afternoon cakes and cookies done by our host, Elan. Our... More

I loved staying at Leith Hall because I'm into history and having fun at the same time. This Victorian B&B haven was restored by preservationists; You can't get more accurate than that! I loved my old-fashioned canopy bed with the lovely quilt, the Victorian bureau with the authentic bowler hat hidden inside, and of course my terrific views of the... More

I stayed one night in this lovely, quaint B & B on a last minute getaway. Our room was the Celebrity room located on the third floor (no elevator though there are rooms on the first floor if that is a concern). The room is on the small side as it is a Victorian home but more makes up for... More

On our first trip to Cape May, we were surprised at the number of B&Bs to choose from, so we went primarily with location. We weren't disappointed as the Leith Hall is just a half block from the beach. The room was nice, although walking up 3 floors made us think twice before coming and going. The breakfast was great...
