Boarding House Cape May

Boarding House Cape May welcomes two dogs up to 80 lbs each for an additional fee of $45 per pet, per night. Well-behaved and house-trained dogs may be left unattended with a 'Dog In Room' hanger on the door. Dogs must be crated for housekeeping to enter, but housekeeping can be arranged for a time when the dog is out of the room by notifying the front desk. Cats and other pets are not permitted.

    Dog park across street

    Dogs very welcome here. Nicely updated room. There were 11 dogs staying in this 11-room hotel and no noise problems. Within walking distance of restaurants, grocery store, and attractions.

    Wonderful place!

    The Boarding House was just what we needed -- great accommodations, fantastic staff. One thing to keep in mind -- Cape May is really only "dog friendly" in the off-season if your pup likes the beach. May to September have restrictions and beach bans. There's a great dog beach in Wildwood, though, a short drive from The Boarding House. We'll definitely go back with or without our dog! :-)

    Great for Small Dogs

    Great for smaller dogs that like to walk; in a good location if your dog likes to walk (about 10 min walks to places). Rooms are pretty tight so tough if you have a highly energetic dog or bigger dog that needs more space.

    Perfect Getaway

    Absolutely amazing! Husband and I stayed here with our 1 year old pup as her first road trip/vacation experience. The rooms are amazing, check-in process really welcomes your pup with a treat and their name on the wall. Outside patios and rooftop deck make it COVID safer than an indoor hotel. Plus, they have happy hour from 5-6 where you can try local beer and wine 🤗 Within walking distance to some local spots, short drive to beach and other tourist attractions. Absolutely staying here again!
