About the Innkeepers
Jan and Mark Pask converted their home at 815 Kearney Avenue in Cape May to the Luther Ogden Inn in 1997. They will celebrate 21 years in the bed and breakfast business in July 2018.
Jan was a public school librarian before becoming an innkeeper. She is active in the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cape May and has served as scholarship chair. She is in her sixth year as President of Cape May Historic Accommodations and serves as Trustee for VFW Auxiliary Post 386. Jan has served on the Mid-Atlantic Innkeepers Advisory Committee and is a member of the Tourism Advisory Board of Cape May. In March of 2015, she was the opening speaker at the Bed and Breakfast Business Building Conference in Dulles, Va.
Mark worked in the paper industry as a national sales manager before retiring. He serves on the Water Commission for the City of Cape May as well as the Shade Tree Commission and the Lafayette Park Advisory Committee and is a lifetime member of VFW Post 386. Mark is the 2018 recipient of the Military Veteran Leadership in Business Award presented by the Cape May County Chamber of Commerce. He likes to fish and garden and is responsible for all the landscaping at the inn as well as for the fresh, organic produce and herbs we grow and use in our breakfasts each morning.
We belong to AIHP (Association of Independent Hospitality Professionals), Cape May County Chamber of Commerce, Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Humanities, Cape May Historic Accommodations, Southern Shore Destination Marketing Organization and the Chamber of Commerce of Greater Cape May.
In our spare time, we like to travel and cruise. We have two married sons and four adorable grandchildren.
