Check-in time is 2PM until 8PM. If you expect to be later than 8PM, guest must notify us in writing so we can make arrangements for your late check in. All late check ins must be confirmed in writing by the innkeeper. Many guests arrive early and this is not a problem as long as we know when to expect you. If the room has not yet been prepared for you, we will gladly store your luggage at the inn.
Off street parking is provided for 7 specific rooms (see room descriptions for details). For all other rooms there is street parking available on both sides of the street. For your convenience, during check-in and check-out guests may use the driveways to unload and load. Once you are in Cape May, you won’t need your car much, if at all. Most everything is walking distance and we have bikes. If you need directions to our inn, click here.
We will operate a little differently this 2021 season. We are following safety guidelines from the county and state. We will have continental breakfast delivered to the room in covered crates. Afternoon refreshments delivered to the room in the same manner. Guests will have option of coming down to common areas. Guests will be asked to practice social distancing guidelines and wear masks in the common areas of the inn as it is mandatory in NJ. We are hopeful that the Covid infection numbers fall in 2021 as a result of herd immunity in union with the Covid vaccine. This will allow us to return to pre-Covid operations so we can serve our guest safely.

The Bacchus Inn appreciates that change is not always comfortable but we are attempting to provide a safe experience while following guidelines so vacation time in Cape May can resume.
Cape May Attractions
There is more to Cape May than just the beach and the Victorian charm. To some people this is enough. Although we do find on occasion we get asked, “What can we do while we’re in Cape May?” If you are asking that very same question, click here.
