Why Should I Stay There? The Mooring is something of an anomaly. It was designed as a guest house when it was built in 1882, unlike the vast majority of Cape May inns, which were originally intended as private homes. It has nine guest rooms and two suites, each with private bath, AC, ceiling fan and period furnishings. Several have ocean views, two have a private porch, and all but two have TVs, which is a good thing, since some guests prefer to go without. Let’s be honest, you can watch TV anywhere — Cape May has so many more inspiring visual treats.
The Mooring’s dining room features tables for two, rather than larger, communal tables, which means you can enjoy the bountiful, home-cooked breakfasts with a little more privacy. Breakfast is plated and served to guests individually, and each day they offer three choices of hot entrée (a specialty French toast or Belgian waffle, and two different egg selections, cooked to order).
Complimentary on-site parking is available, as well as free street parking on Stockton Avenue — another good thing.
