My wife and I planned to spend Christmas in Cape May with our new puppy and the Highland House was an excellent choice for the holiday weekend. We had Room II and we loved the coziness and amenities it had to offer. The staff is so friendly and welcoming that it makes you feel at home. Our puppy was relaxed... More

We love to travel with our Cavalier and look for pet friendly places. Terri and Dave were warm and welcoming to us and Oliver. The "green" room was delightful, clean and pretty. We had access to 2 upstairs porches as well. It had a small fridge, microwave and 2 burners, though we did not cook. Breakfast is avail. during off... More

My girlfriend, our pup, and I stayed in Room III this past weekend and we loved it! The room was a great size and was very clean. All the guests who were staying there at the same time were really friendly and considerate, as were the owners. On top of all of that, the complementary breakfast was DELICIOUS! I can't... More

This is our third year staying at the wonderful Highland House. This year we stayed in room 1. The room has a private entrance with its own small fenced in area for your dog to hang out by itself or you can open the gate and it leads into the other area for dogs. Room 1 is probably the most...

Hi Scott, Thanks for your review. You summed up everything that we hope the Highland House is. It's appreciated more than I can say. You're great guests and we're lucky to have you return. The apple sauce that Linda brought was great. I foolishly left it in the refrigerator another week without getting it to my Mom. When I finally... More

My husband, myself, & our dog recently stayed at the Highland House while we were attending a wedding in Cape May. Our suite (Rm.2) was very spacious with a small kitchen. We even had a separate entrance and an outside porch area. This place is doggie heaven. There are enclosed areas for dogs to roam freely. The owner Dave, and... More

I recently returned from a group trip to Highland House with 5 other friends and 8 dogs. Never have I ever experienced a more dog-friendly place! Dave and his Mom Terry were so welcoming to all.

Our experience at the Highland House in Cape May (in the Green Room) was very disappointing. Clearly a "handyman special". First step into the room, the thin, overlaid wood flooring had so expanded since installation that it was buckled and raised up such that it squished and squeaked with every footstep. And the surface was very sticky. As a "dog-friendly"... More
