Albert Stevens Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 May 2009

Michael and I visited Cape May for the first time for last weekend's New Jersey Audubon Spring Birding Weekend and were so pleased with the Albert Stevens Inn. The hosts are totally wonderful. Jim suggested several local events and points of interest (world class jazz, winery tours, etc.), and had great recommendations for restaurants that met our needs (early bird specials, good food at good prices, etc.).

The Betsy Room is lovely and comfortable and the free wireless Internet and iPhone docking station were a fantastic bonus. We were so sad to only be able to enjoy one of the breakfasts because we left early every morning for birding because the aromas coming from the kitchen every morning were amazing. They make a special effort for vegetarians by offering meat on the side; the cheese, crackers and wine were delicious; and the Sangria on Saturday was the best ever!

The Albert Stevens is perfectly located within minutes of Higbee Beach, the Nature Conservancy's Bird Migration Wetland, and the Rea Farm. There is ample off-street parking and a lovely green park across the street where Jim says the Lima Bean Festival is held every year.

Next visit we'll plan more free time so we can relax in the sitting room and on the porch. We really had a perfect stay and highly recommended this B&B for Cape May visitors.

My friend and I decided we needed a girls' weekend away. We chose Cape May and decided on the Albert Stevens Inn based on the value, location, 3-course breakfast included, AND wine and cheese at 4pm EVERY DAY! Our stay was comfortable with gracious and accommodating hosts, wonderful food for breakfast every morning, convenient location within walking distance of great restaurants and shopping. Our hosts were always willing to help us with restaurant and activity suggestions and making reservations when needed. Hopefully, we'll return to Cape May in the future and would DEFINITELY stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Albert Stevens Inn for our honeymoon in August (I have been meaning to write a review for a while now!). The room we stayed in was The Study, and it was gorgeous - huge, well decorated, impeccably clean, with a lovely bathroom. The decor was very elegant and sleek without being fussy. Obviously, it included all of the usual amenities (fridge, hair dryer, sewing kit, lotion, etc) The inn was full when we stayed there, but it was very quiet - I never heard any of the other guests coming and going during the night and early morning. Also, there is a parking area behind the inn for guests - very, very convenient.

Jim was a fantastic host. From the moment we arrived, he went out of his way to help us have a great stay. We arrived in town with only one dinner reservation (later in the week), and Jim recommended all of our other meals, plus made the reservations for us. All of his recommendations were exactly what we were in the mood for - the only meal that we didn't enjoy was the reservation we had made ourselves (at a fine dining restaurant that got rave press reviews but that Jim said was overrated...we should have listened to him). I also went for multiple massages at The Well Center for Massage (I showed them my room key and got a discount on all of their services).

The inn is in a good location - an easy walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping, flea market, mini-golf, etc. Jim also showed us the way to a quiet swimming beach with small, gentle waves that was practically empty (two things I've never experienced at the Jersey Shore). There are bicycles for guests to use, and we took a morning bike ride every day along the promenade, as well as biking to the beach. (The backpack chairs were a great touch!).

Finally, the food at the Albert Stevens Inn is exceptional. I take my breakfasts very seriously, and so do Jim and Lenanne - everything was delicious and beautifully presented. We also appreciated that there were both communal tables and smaller "two-seaters" - everyone staying at the inn was very friendly, but in the mornings (especially since it was our honeymoon), it was nice to be able to eat breakfast on our own. We had to check out very early on our last day, but Jim and Lenanne still made us breakfast despite the early hour. The afternoon tea with homemade cookies, crackers, cheese, dips, etc was wonderful - my husband ate a ridiculous amount of the cookies every day.

Fantastic service, elegant, romantic, charming...the Albert Stevens Inn has it all!

The house is gorgeous, the rooms are stunning, the food is to die for, and the the hosts are the warmest/friendliest people you will ever meet! We felt so at home and so relaxed. It's close to everything, yet out of the hustle and bustle of the crowds. They have several beach cruiser bikes that my husband and I used to ride all over town. Cape May is one of the most beautiful places on Earth... I didn't want to leave. We'll definitely be back to this B&B....simply wonderful!!

Our stay at the Albert Stevens Inn was perfect in all aspects. Jim and Lenanne were wonderful hosts providing detailed directions to hot spots in Cape May as well as their reviews of local restaurants. The rooms were so relaxing and modernized, but just enough for convenience, while maintaining the history of the property. The breakfast dishes each day were spectacular! The afternoon tea/coffee/wine and snacks hit the spot. This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast and most certainly not our last. We will be back to the Albert Stevens Inn and we recommend the Inn to anyone wishing for a carefree get-a-way.

My husband and I just spent another fun, relaxing and beautiful time at the Albert Stevens Inn. Jim and Lenanne who are so professional see to it that their guests are always well taken care of.

The accommodations, breakfasts, afternoon snacks and the whole atmosphere of the inn is first-rate. There is always such a nice, diverse group of people staying there. Many of them are repeat guests just like us.

It's no surprise to note how highly rated they have become.

Staying at the Albert Stevens Inn was a delight! Jim and Lenanne were fabulous! They made you feel at home and welcomed as soon as you walked into the door. Lenanne's breakfast were out of this world and the snacks and goodies were just as wonderful. The inn offered the best in customer service and I cannot wait to return!
