Went up to celebrate my 40th birthday and visit with friends. It was a wonderful way to celebrate my birthday! Loved meeting the owner and learning about the place. Fantastic facilities (remarkable sheets), lovely breakfast choices, and great location...Highly recommended for a romantic weekend/week away in Cape May!

My bride and I had the wonderful opportunity to visit The Harrison and we were totally impressed. Although it was only a one night stay the memories will linger. From our arrival when Vicki greeted us (what a sweet and engaging innkeeper) to our perfectly prepared room (we stayed in the Atlantic room in the newly acquired and renovated Pharo)...

My wife and I had that rare chance to get away for the weekend so we decided on The Harrison after viewing their website. The B&B looked just as good in person and the hospitality was the icing on the cake. We stayed in their recent extension "The Pharos" and it had all the charm of their main B&B. Breakfast...

What a beautifully done place in cape may. Its fresh bright design is so welcoming. Its a nod to the traditional Cape May style but totally redone in fresh light welcoming hues...there is nothing dark about this place. We stayed at the Pharos at The Harrison which is their most recent addition next door and really loved everything about it....

Being here is heaven. The decorating is magazine-beautiful, elegant and sophisticated and comfortable all at the same time. We felt as though we were living in a sparkling mansion, not just a regular B&B. The staff - Vicki, Andrea, Jean G, and Jean N. cared for us as though we were their best friends. Breakfast is outstanding (we particularly recommend...
