A lovely house and location. We were excited to be able to bring our dog, but unfortunately the walls are thin and we could hear at least 2 dogs barking at a time and every word of the arguing couple upstairs. It was like trying to sleep in a dog kennel and our tired pup was on edge the entire... More

First of all, the good. Jenny and Mary Ellen, the two wonderful ladies who run this place during the week, were terrific. If we needed something, they responded quickly and with a smile. They cooked and served a wonderful breakfast every day. Which brings me to the bad. The Highland House website states that coffee and tea are available every... More

Hi Perry, Thank you so much for your review of the Highland House. I'm sorry to hear that you and Nancy were disappointed with your visit.

My husband and I have stayed st Highland House multiple times in the past few years. It is not your typical swanky Victorian Cape May B&B, so if you're going for that kind of ambiance, look elsewhere. HOWEVER, if you want or need to travel with one or more pets, you will never find a warmer welcome than you will... More

Found this gem on my research to find a place to stay with my dog! Rooms very clean with no doggie smell! The ladies that run this B and B are all so helpful and friendly!

This place is set up perfectly for you and your dog. We had Efficiency Room #1. It had it's own private entrance; a kitchenette, which came in very handy for leftovers; a couch that our dog took over as her bed; and it's own fenced-in, lovely yard. It was in the back and very quiet. Although I never met David,... More

This was our first visit to Highland House. We decided to take the Memorial Day weekend and get away from it all. From the moment we arrived, the atmosphere was quite comfortable, friendly and all around relaxing. Our dog Shortie took to Dave, the inn keeper, immediately. We had three great breakfasts, attentive staff, and everything we could ever need... More

My husband and I loved this place, as did my dachshund Bernie. So this place is extremely dog friendly. There is no extra fee for bringing your dog with you. The breakfast was great: eggs, bacon, fruit salad, and home made coffee cake.(though I do believe the type of breakfast is different depending on wether it's busy season or not)... More

We were excited to make our first visit to Cape May but off season on a Tuesday night there was only one place to find something to eat, a pizza joint. We were hoping for something better than pizza. The Highland House B&B was a disappointment but I'd like to hope it was because it was off season as well.... More
