Our dogs are our family so I've had my eye on Highland House for a while. We finally got to visit Easter weekend and our whole family loved our little trip! We stayed in the cottage which would be our only choice, we love the privacy and we discovered it is down the street from Delaware Bay Beach. Dogs are... More

My husband and I stayed at the Highland House for Christmas. This was our first time visiting Cape May and staying at the Highland House. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We loved that the Highland House is also pet friend. So, we brought our dog along with us. The Highland House is walking distance from Washington Mall and ACME grocery... More

Highland House is a terrific find. Great destination that is super dog friendly. Dave Ripoli was kind and welcoming. Room 2 had a full stove with oven, a small fridge, and private outdoor space. Great place to retreat from a busy urban life.

Hi Julie, Thank you for such a nice review. If I'm not mistaken, your visit was over the Thanksgiving holiday. Thanks for choosing us as your getaway spot. I hope the holidays have been filled with the best of all the season offers and hope that you'll visit the Highland House again in the New Year. Dave More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Highland House. Thank you so much for your hospitality! The dogs were very comfortable and the private entrance (Room II) with the deck in the back was just perfect for two people, three dogs and two bikes. We enjoyed everything about Highland House from the short walk (5 blocks) to the beach for sunrise... More

My husband, my Mastiffs & I have been staying at the Highland House for almost 13 year. We have also visited with our 4 nephews/niece on several occasions in the summer. We consider it a home away from home, and try to get down about once a month from October - June. We love Cape May, and we love this... More

We stated in room 2 this time around. It was pretty quiet even though the place was full of other guests. Once in a while you hear a dog bark but all was quiet other than that. Room 2 has a private entrance and small patio off the back of the house and is really handy when traveling with a... More

My husband and I wanted to take a long weekend visit to Cape May during the off season in September. It's never easy to find a comfortable & welcoming B&B when we travel with our two dogs. We got lucky with the Highland House. Our room had a cute outside seating area where we sat & enjoyed a glass of... More

We called to book a two night stay, Sept. 29-Oct. 1, just a spur of the moment Sunday morning decision. I didn't have time to do extensive research, and we needed a pet friendly place and I found Highland House online. The pictures are quite deceiving, it doesn't look nearly as nice in person. The Green Room is very small... More

Hi Vickie, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you were so disappointed. I sure wish your husband would have mentioned the problem with the bed when he chatted with Mary Ellen. Most of our beds are pillow tops but we have had guests that have requested firm mattresses and have opted for a traditional firm... More

My fiancé and I took our 2 dogs (35lbs and 65lbs) down for an extended weekend and did not know what to expect, however we were more than pleased with our stay. We stayed in Room 1, which was clean and well kept (yes, with many cat and dog themed items, but that added to the welcoming charm). We had... More
