Cape May's Laid-back Alternative and Dog Friendly Hotel!

We look forward to seeing you again soon when we re-open for the season on May 8th!

The happiest little hotel on the beachfront just got a little happier! The Beach Shack recently enjoyed a fun and colorful spruce-up. And not only humans will enjoy the results — we made some upgrades to better accommodate our canine visitors (the Beach Shack offers dog-friendly rooms). "When you're at the Beach Shack you're reminded of all the simple pleasures of being a child at the beach," says interior designer Colleen Bashaw. So what can you expect? New bathroom vanities and new carpeting, which has been designed exclusively for the Beach Shack and will be a "cousin" of the carnival-stripe carpeting in Congress Hall. You can also expect a fresh coat of Honey Burst paint. "It's a happy color," Colleen says. "But not too intense. It's mellow." You know, kind of like an evening spent by a fire pit.

If a perfect family beach vacation means never having to put your shoes back on once you arrive and always being steps from the ocean, then the Beach Shack is the place for you.

Beach Shack is Cape May, New Jersey’s fresh and fun alternative for beach lovers who want somewhere the whole family can enjoy together. One that’s stylish and dog-friendly with all the amenities you need*, but where you’ll feel perfectly at home wearing flip-flops all day long. It’s sweet simplicity itself, effortlessly capturing the true spirit of unforgettable summer-beach days Cape May is loved for. *We have a limited number of dog friendly rooms available each night and they can only be booked by calling 1-877-SHACK-07. Please review our Dog Policies.

At the Beach Shack, you’ll always be close to The Rusty Nail, Cape May’s legendary “hang out” for lifeguards, surfers and other beachgoers, who flock to the long bar after hours for the shore’s coldest beers and best vibe. Even your pooch can get a “cold one” after a hot day. You’ll love the casual, fun outdoor ambiance, friendly welcoming staff and our fresh take on all your seaside favorites like clams, oysters and the great fresh fish. Once you’re settled at one of the tables it’s not hard to see why Travel & Leisure chose The Rusty Nail as one of "America's Top 10 Beach Bars."

As if the Beach Shack wasn’t already fabulous, be sure to stop by our sister hotels just down the beach, including Congress Hall, home of The Blue Pig Tavern, Sea Spa and Cape May’s best after-hours nightspot—The Boiler Room.
