Terms & Conditions

PLEASE NOTE: If the credit card used to hold the room is DECLINED or DECLINES at any time during our weekly process of credit card authorizations, the RESERVATION WILL NOT BE HELD AND WILL BE CANCELLED. It is your responsibility to ensure we have accurate credit card information to hold your room and secure your reservation..

Cancellations must be made 21 days in advance of your scheduled arrival for a refund of your deposit minus a $60 processing fee per room reservation.  If the cancellation is made within 21 days of your scheduled arrival, one night (room charge plus tax) will be retained from your deposit per room reservation (in addition to the $60 cancellation fee) if the reservation is not re-rented in full. If no deposit has been received, one night (room charge plus tax) per room reservation in addition to the $60 cancellation fee will be charged to the credit card that was placed on file to reserve the room. If we are able to fill the vacancy caused by the cancellation, a refund for the full amount of your deposit (minus $60 processing fee) will be issued to you. ALL deposit refunds will be issued in the form of a certificate. This certificate will be valid for a one-year period for you to use at your convenience. General cancellation processing fees are charged on all cancellations regardless of reason (i.e. illness, health concerns, emergency, unsatisfied with room/condition, weather, etc).

You are also responsible for full payment of the reservation if departing prior to the scheduled departure date or a no-show regardless of the reason (i.e. illness, health concerns, emergency, unsatisfied with room/condition, weather, etc).

Any cancellation received within 72 hours of your scheduled arrival date, or a no-show on your scheduled arrival date require the reservation to be paid in full and will not be refunded.

The only weather-related, or any cancellation in general that will NOT be charged is in the event of an evacuation order. Cancellations due to weather forecast warnings or inclement weather (i.e. severe thunderstorms, snowstorms, hurricane warnings, etc) are processed per our normal cancellation policy stated above.


We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover. Please mention any gift certificates you may be using, when you make your reservation.  Although we do have a credit card on file, the credit card is used to hold the room only at time of the reservation, and is not charged for your deposit unless the guest is present with the card. To ensure the room is held, a check or Zelle is preferred for your deposit in the amount of half the balance due to guarantee booking. If using Zelle, the email to use for deposits is If sending a check, please make check payable to "23 Ocean LLC" and send your deposit to Beauclaire's Bed & Breakfast Inn, 23 Ocean Street, Cape May, NJ 08204. We will not cancel your reservation due to lack of a check deposit and will charge your card the balance due at check in, however we will do a weekly authorization check of the credit card on file, up until the week of check-in to ensure the card is still valid (if the card declines during one of the weekly card authorization checks, the reservation will be cancelled. Using Zelle or check deposits are the only ways to guarantee the reservation will not get cancelled due to a declined credit card) .  Full advance payment is required for a one-night reservation.  We ask for deposits to be sent within 5 days of room booking. If you are making a reservation as a gift for someone else, the reservation must be paid in full at the time of booking.
