    My wife and I have stayed at this gem even back when when it was the Brass Bed Inn.  Now, it is our favorite destination because it is so well done, John and Lisa make you feel like family (Lisa makes the best B&B breakfast in Cape May imho), and it is convenient to everything.  We used to try other B&B's in Cape May just for the different experiences - we're now more than happy to return again and again to Bacchus!

    Great place to stay!  Really friendly people!  They make you feel like family!  Homemade breakfast is great, the wine and cheese hour is very nice and it is close to everything good in cape may!  We go every year and wouldn't stay anywhere else.  Strongly recommended!!

    We were so pleased when we decided to spend a night at the Bacchus Inn. We loved the included use of beach cruiser bikes, tasty food, afternoon snacks, unbelievable atmosphere, and welcoming staff/owners. The breakfast was great and John and Lisa provided great tips on things to do and see in Cape May. I wish we could have stayed for a week or more, but sadly one night was all we had. If I ever go down to Cape May again, I would not stay anywhere other than the Bacchus Inn

    Just returned from a night at the Bacchus Inn on our drive home from Virginia.  We arrived around 6pm and were greeted by John, the owner of the B&B.  He and his wife are a young couple who have been in the business for enough years that they take all your needs into consideration and are highly attentive. Since we were late in our arrival, we asked him to recommend a restaurant based on our dining preferences.  He even called the establishment (410 Bank Street) and made us reservations.  If you like B&Bs, this is a top notch establishment.  The antique furniture lends to the inn's charm, the bedrooms are cleaner than any hotel I've stayed in (Including the Ritz Carlton's), and their desire to please and succeed is clearly demonstrated. The Bacchus Inn is only a few blocks to the beach, they have beach chairs and bikes for your use, and an outdoor shower with shampoo, conditioner, and clean towels.  They gave us extra time to check out, and allowed us to use the outdoor shower before our 3 hr drive home; even after we had checked out.  Breakfast we ate the cheese & fruit blintzes, and engaged in conversation with John.  Finally, we forgot two shirts in the closet, and Barbara left a message on the phone asap; which allowed us to return before having left Cape May.

    This was our first B&B stay in Cape May, and I think we've already found our home away from home during our visits to the Cape!

    John & Lisa run this great B&B about two blocks from the ocean.  It may not be ocean view, but many B&Bs in Cape May aren't.  Columbia Avenue is full of beautiful B&Bs and restored homes, lined with trees and flowers.  It's a beautiful site to see in May, before the city gets crowded for the summer.  It was easy to find a place to park within a few blocks if you needed to, but the more expensive rooms in the B&B do come with a parking space.

    We stayed in the main house (719 Columbia), but the smaller cottage house is just across the street at 710.  I'm sure that Lisa & John get tired walking back and forth every day, but both properties are just lovely.  They are both Victorian homes like most in Cape May, but they weren't as over-the-top done on the inside.  We stayed in room 5, a huge room with a king bed and beautiful armoire for hanging clothes.  If you are looking for privacy, room 5 is great because there isn't a guestroom above or below you, nor did we hear any of the guests on the sides of us.  The photos on their website are exactly what we saw when we walked in!  Room 5 also has an electric fireplace and a shower with a rain shower head and body jets.  It's a great way to wake up in the morning!

    The Bacchus Inn has lots of great places to curl up with the paper or a good book.  The enclosed sunporch was great once the sun was down and it began to get cold; they've filled it with comfortable wicker furniture, magazines, books and board games.  You can also take a seat in a rocker on the front porch, or if you're feeling a bit formal, take a seat in the parlor.

    Make sure you get down to breakfast early so that you can have a seat at the main table.  We ate at the early seating (8:30), with 8 people at the main table and two or three tables on the side porch.  The food was excellent; I particularly enjoyed my vanilla yogurt parfait with fresh pineapple, blueberries and raspberries.  If you're hungry a little earlier, John has muffins and pastries out a bit before 8 with lots of coffee and tea, or if you're up even earlier, you can make yourself a cup of tea or coffee at their little beverage stand.

    We can't wait to go back and explore another room at the B&B.  Tell John & Lisa that we said hi!

    The owners might be my favorite part of the experience at the Bacchus Inn. They were friendly, welcoming and just generally very happy to see us. The rooms are so adorable and comfortable. The amenities left nothing to be desired. The breakfast was delicious and the afternoon wine and cheese were amazing. There was a beach bag with beach towels waiting for us in the closet. There were beach cruiser bikes to use at our convenience. There was an outdoor shower and clean towels on the side of the house. There were DVDs/videos and books to borrow.

    We had such a great time here. We have heard before visiting Cape May that the Victorian houses are very unique to this place. And to stay in one really made our experience complete. The price was totally worth it. But I do believe that the price drops dramatically during off season. We will definitely come back again.

    It's a "little slice of heaven," especially if you are a foodie, like me!  The breakfasts are truly gourmet-quality (I'm still thinking about that little Dutch apple pancake that tasted just like Tarte Tatin) and served at a formal dining table on real china.  The room we stayed in (in their annex across the street) was just adorable with a sparkling clean bathroom.  But most important, the innkeepers are simply amazing:  they enjoy what they do and it comes through in every interaction you have with them.  Oh, and lest I forget, homemade cookies and brownies every day at 4 PM, along with homemade lemonade and sangria and wine.  It doesn't get much better than this.

    As a frequent visitor to Cape May, hands down The Bacchus Inn is my favorite B&B in town. The property has two homes, and I stayed in the Cottage across the street from the main inn. Our room was spacious, beautifully decorated and immaculate. The bathroom was a really nice size, which you don't always see in a B&B. What was most appreciated was the breakfast (fantastic!) and the afternoon wine and cheese. The owner and innkeeper  are delightful people and enjoyable to be around.

    Wow! Amazing place! We stayed here week after Labor Day weekend. First of all I am very critical, but I must say this place is perfect, super clean rooms, amazing service, 2 blocks away from the beach, shower outside if u want to rinse off after beach, beach chairs...even clean beach towels! I mean I can't say enough on how delicious our breakfast was, and u get two settings that u can choose from...8:30am or 9:45, that was great because I wanted to sleep in a lil. Wine and cheese from 4-5, and they made great sangria too....Great time! Thank u Frank for being so chatty and positive! We loved this place!

    Great experience. We were in the Tuscany room #8 on the third floor. Great room with small balcony. Also great workout walking 3 flights to get there but would still book it again. Just loved the enclosed glass porch which made our rainy weekend so relaxing. John aims to please and the breakfasts were awesome. Highly recommended.

    I pretty much only use Yelp to read reviews, not write them.  After our 4th or 5th stay here, I thought it finally warranted my first review.

    The Bacchus Inn is a fantastic B&B in a perfect location. Rooms are cleaner than hotel rooms and the owners are wonderful.  Wine and cheese in the afternoon is a great time to unwind from a day at the beach, get ready for the nights activity and socialize with  friendly guests.  Leave your beach chairs at home, there is plenty that you can use at the Inn and they are likely nicer than the ones you will bring.

    A delicious home-made breakfast is cooked every morning and fresh coffee is available as well as some muffins and such.  If you're looking for that perfect weekend getaway with your significant other, stay here.

    We'll be back!
    From the moment you arrive, John is the host who makes sure you are comfortable
    and happy. My daughter and I stayed at the Bacchus Inn for five days and I have to say, we ate well, slept well, enjoyed the company and the wine!
    John and Lisa do a great job engaging all in conversation. They provide beach chairs, bikes, towels and spotless rooms.
    A great place to stay if you want to sit on the porch and talk or just have silent time.
    Only a few blocks from the beach too!

    Ok- Take a weekend that's plans are up in the air and start scrolling through some overnight hot spots in Cape May. If you're lucky like we were, you'll come across this enchanting inn located just a few blocks from the main shopping district, the beach and close to 3.2 million great places to eat! On Friday I reached John, half of an incredible team who owns this charming house on Columbia Ave., and he immediately made me feel that I had made the right choice in calling him. In the off chance we were to get into town early, could we still check in before two p.m.? Of course! When walking into this three story slice of history, you know that there is love poured into this business. The house was built in 1876 and over the years has seen many changes and lots of the kind of care that every proud home owner knows. Inside is decorated meticulously and leaves you feeling all at once relaxed and comfortable. A large dining table and a wrap around porch with many comfortable chairs beckon to you to come, sit and enjoy at the wine and cheese hour from four to five p.m. Strike up a conversation with John and you feel like you've made a new friend within minutes. Smart, hard working and family oriented- and pours all of this into his business.
    Each room in the house is unique and since there were two rooms available, we were given our choice of room three and four. We chose three because of the stained glass windows and the claw foot tub in the bath (pictures from a previous review do the room justice). Houses in those days were built solid and as such, the room was very quiet and we never heard another guest. On our door when we went out for dinner in the evening was a card asking what we would like for breakfast. Choices included fresh fruit, muffins, french toast and more. Breakfast started at 8am for coffee and muffins followed by a sit down breakfast with all of the other guests at 8:30. There's nothing like breaking bread with strangers in the morning over a cup of coffee to start your day off right. We met some interesting people and John was always eager to please his guests by bringing and clearing plates and joining in the flowing conversation. My only wish was that we had come down for more than just one night. Do yourself a favor when booking a trip to Cape May and consider the Bacchus Inn- you'll be glad you did!!!!

    My mother and I had such a wonderful time! We stayed in in room 15, The Petite Syrah room and it was great. The bed was comfy, rooms were quiet and breakfast was wonderful. The owner does such a wonderful job on making you feel relaxed and at home. They Inn supply's bikes, beach chairs and towels during your stay and they even have a private outdoor shower for you to use after your day at the beach before you head back to reality. Our stay was perfect and can't wait to come back.

    The Bacchus Inn knows how to please!

    Right from the start, John was welcoming and friendly. He immediately made dinner reservations for us after asking about where we'd like to go and what we'd like to eat.
    The room (#4) was spotless, with french doors leading to an airy and bright bathroom. The bed was so comfortable with two different hardness of pillows to choose from.
    Wine glasses and corkscrew were available in room for us, and a fridge and microwave were available in the hall.
    Coffee, tea, and water were available self-serve at any hour, down in the sunroom.

    Don't miss the 4:00 happy hour. This was our favorite part! Complimentary wine, cheese, crackers, and fruit are available from 4-5 in the afternoons. Sit outside on the porch and chat with other guests, you never know where the conversation will take you!

    The breakfast consisted of a fruit course to start, then a savory meal. Coffee, tea, and OJ were free flowing starting half an hour before breakfast. Two seatings were offered. They accommodated my lactose intolerance for breakfast, as well as other guests' needs and preferences.

    Beach chairs and bikes are available for guest use. I suggest biking in the earlier morning! An outdoor shower stall WITH TOWELS is available for use. We used it after check-out, before heading home, since we were sandy from a day at the beach.

    Had it rained, books, a DVD collection and board game cupboard are available. Multiple sitting rooms would allow for relaxation.
    Our room did not come with "parking" but I parked on the street and my car was close by and safe. Not a problem at all.
