Your home away from home...
in the perfect location!

Pharo's Inn, a family run Cape May bed and breakfast inn, is ideally located in the heart of Cape May's Historic District, just a three-minute walk to the beach and Convention Hall, and four minutes to the Washington Street Mall, shopping, and dining.

Pharo's Inn was commissioned to be built in 1867. The Italianate style home was designed by the renowned architect Stephen Decatur Button and has been operated by the Pharo family since 1928.

Today, it is run by your innkeepers Walt and Pat Kowalski. We offer a cheerful, friendly, relaxing atmosphere for your enjoyment, whether it be couples or larger groups or families. Our large comfortable rooms come with King and Queen size beds which all face Columbia Avenue.
