    Cannot wait to come back!

    Staying at Highland House with our pup was an absolute dream. The proprietors truly love all dogs and are thrilled to welcome them. There is a fenced in yard for all pups and there are two balconies on the second floor. Our room (and I'm assuming all the others) had two dog bowls and a sheet to go over the furniture to protect from fur. All of the guests during our stay were traveling with pups and it was a fun and easy breakfast conversation. The location is perfect - just 10 minute walk from the beach and since we visited in the offseason, we were able to walk our dog on the beach each morning. We had such a great time and really felt at home at the Highland House. Cannot wait to come back!

    Favorite place in Cape May!

    Highland House is the ONLY place we stay in Cape May when visiting with our two French Bulldogs. The owner Dave is an exceptional host and always makes us feel so welcome. The historic accommodations are lovely and we especially appreciated Suite Room 2 that had a private entrance and gated deck so we could enjoy the outdoors in private. The beds are comfortable, the shower is great, and the location is everything you could want, including a 10 minute walk to the Ocean where dogs are welcomed after Sept 30. This is a special place that enables pet parents like us to create lifetime memories and we are truly grateful! Highland House delivers warmth, a homelike environment and an exceptional value for the price. we can’t wait to return again and again!!

    The BEST!

    Highland House is pretty much the only place I ever want to stay with our pup. This place is so special and Dave and his family make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Being able to stay in a place that is so dog friendly and dog welcoming was a true joy. We loved our room with a cute balcony and loved being able to walk around the grounds of the house as well. Breakfast was delicious and we loved meeting the other guests with their furry friends. Location is awesome too being within walking distance of several restaurants and the beach. Can’t say enough about this place. We will definitely be back!!

    Come hungry!

    Awesome breakfast served each morning. My wife, dog and I had breakfast in the screened-in gazebo each morning. The food was delicious. Highland House is in a great central location to walking around in Cape May. The house has great character. We would certainly stay there again.

    Amazing Stay, Super Dog Friendly

    From the moment you get there the owner, Dave, makes you and your dogs feel welcome. The place is fantastic, and super dog friendly. Would recommend to anyone who wants to bring their dogs with them to the beach. We will definitely be staying here again.

    Great spot for the whole family, including our Newfy

    Excellent accommodations. Enjoyed the 1-bedroom pet efficiency with private exit. Shady, and comfortable spots to hang out before you head off into town or the beach. Very nice stay with our big lovable Newfy.

    Lovely Place, Will Return

    We were so happy to take a trip and be able to take our dogs with us. The Highland House was a charming and comfortable place to vacation. Close to all points of interest, and a very laid back and friendly atmosphere. I was a little concerned that my young, as of yet not thoroughly socialized dogs (pups of Covid...) would be too disruptive with yapping, everyone there were so understanding and very pet loving, and it turned out to be no issue for our fur kids to adjust, they did so much better than I could’ve hoped for! will definitely be returning, love Highland House!
