I believe our stay earlier this week was our fourth or fifth at Highland House. We always go off season for bird migration, and have our dog with us. The cats can stay at home for a few days with food, water, and litter boxes that start off clean, so we only travel with our one dog. The location is great for us, since we spend most of our time out at Sunset, the lighthouse, or Higbee. Plus, there are several good places within easy walking distance to pick up a lunch to go, or sit down for dinner. Breakfast is always good, whether it's quiche, an egg casserole, or "eggs your way," and there are always some fruit and baked goods to accompany it. Coffee, tea, and juice are there, too. You will not walk away from breakfast feeling hungry. All rooms have some version of a kitchenette, so you can make your own coffee in-room, store leftovers, and nuke them later. The two efficiency rooms also have stoves, along with private entrances in the back of the house. The staff has always been wonderful. I've never met Dave, the owner, but that's because we always book on weekdays, not the weekend. Highland House is not super fancy, but it's always clean, and comfortable. If you want a really romantic weekend getaway with picture perfect everything, champagne, gourmet chocolates, and roses in your room, this is not your place, but if you want comfortable digs that allows pets, this IS your place. We will be back sometime next Spring.

This place was awesome for our first anniversary trip with our large dog. Very clean, the staff was courteous, and the breakfast was fantastic. We stayed in the Garden Room, and it was a little snug but the attached porch was awesome with lots of room. We had plenty of space to hang out! The only downside is that the Garden Room doesn't have a microwave, which is a little inconvenient (especially since we like making tea). I believe the other rooms might have more kitchen/dining space. However, there is a mini fridge which was very helpful! Overall, this was the perfect spot for the three of us. We'll be definitely be back on our next trip!

We absolutely loved staying at Highland House. We needed a place to stay in West Cape May while we cleaned out my Mother's house for sale. This place exceeded my expectations. It was clean, cozy and very convenient. I've always loved being in West Cape May where you can walk to the beach, the mall, the restaurants... it's such a great location. My dog's favorite park is right down the street so that's a bonus. Now that my mother has moved away I plan on booking Highland House multiple times next year. My new home away from home!

Went here for a quick get away weekend. What a great place the breakfast was out of this world. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfortable. Also I it is within walking distance from everything. The wife and I walked everywhere. Never moved the car. Will defiantly be returning.

This place is adorable. Feels so homely. You walk in to a dining room table. Then up the stairs to the room. Outside was the envelope w my name key and instructions on it. The best word to describe this place comfortable. I brought my two small dogs w me and the entire area is gated so they’re safe. I love it. And the surrounding area is so friendly.
