Bringing your dog?

We have a limited number of dog friendly rooms available each night!

Dog Policies

To ensure that all of our guests enjoy their time at the Beach Shack, here are some rules we require when staying with your dog.

Dog Policies

For the safety of your dog and Beach Shack staff, please make sure that you hang the "Dog in Room" door hanger provided on your room doorknob. We suggest that you make arrangements with the front desk for you to remove your dog from the room when the housekeeper is cleaning to ensure the best results. You may be contacted via cell phone if any issues arise.

Want to head to dinner or to the beach for a couple of hours? No problem! Dogs may be left in the room unattended as long as they are not a disturbance to other guests. Please notify the front desk when you are leaving your dog in the guest room unattended. Dogs left in room must be in an owner-supplied crate. A cell phone number must be left at check in for us to contact you in case there is a problem while you are away. Your dog is welcome to join you at the Rusty Nail (in fact, we encourage it!). However, your dog must be on a leash and dogs are not to be left unattended in any public areas including balconies, parking lot, Rusty Nail, etc. Dogs are not allowed in the Beach Shack pool.

Please do not bathe your dog in the guest room tubs or showers. We ask that owners keep their dog under control as a courtesy to other guests. Should damages be discovered that would require additional cleaning or repairs, the guest is required to pay for said damages. If they are discovered following the guests departure, they are responsible for the damages. Should a pet create a disturbance which causes complaints from other occupants or hotel personnel, the guest may be asked to house their dog elsewhere for the remainder of their stay.

Walking Your Dog in Cape May

Dogs can be walked around town, however, they are not permitted on any beaches, the promenade or the Washington Street Mall. All waste must be bagged and disposed of properly. This city ordinance is strictly enforced.

Dog Reservations / Registration

We have a limited number of dog friendly rooms available each night and they can only be booked by calling 1877-SHACK-07. During the reservation process you should let the reservation agent know you will be traveling with a dog (1 medium dog, 50lbs or less per room), and wish to book the PAWS UP package. This way we can ensure we have a dog friendly room available. All dogs must be registered at the front desk upon arrival. If guest is found to have an unregistered dog in room, a $150 fine will be applied to room folio plus the nightly dog fee.

Book the PAWS UP! Dog Package

Running, Biking, Walking

Being on vacation at the New Jersey shore means being outside as much as you can and there are lots of options to enjoy your workout in the fresh air while staying with us. Rent a bike at the Congress Hall Bike Shop, go for an invigorating run on the beach (maybe you’ll see some dolphins!), or ask the front desk for recommendations for nearby hikes and nature walks.

Congress Hall
Bike Shop

SEASONAL

There’s no better way to get around Cape May than by bike. The city is flat as a pancake and very pretty, the perfect ingredients for a lovely bike ride! The Congress Hall Bike Shop offers singles, doubles, children’s bikes, surreys and helmets.

Beach Shack Pool

SUMMER

We know our beaches are pretty special, but a change of scenery is always nice, especially on vacation. Take a dip in our pool. Not only is it the perfect temperature, it is family-friendly, and steps away from your guest room. Enjoy the sun and some amazing ocean breezes on the pool deck.

Beach Service

SUMMER

Since you’ve come for the beach, we provide complimentary use of loungers, umbrellas and towels. But, for the ultimate vacation treat, rent one of our classic blue and orange beach tents—on the beach directly in front of the Beach Shack—and learn first hand just how good a perfect day at the beach can feel.

Beach Boot Camp

SUMMER

Feeling inspired to exercise in the beautiful beach-side setting? Try Beach Boot Camp at Congress Hall. It's a great way to provide some gain without the pain. While you’ll definitely work up a sweat, the tranquil ocean views will make your experience something to look forward to rather than dread, we promise.

Yoga

SUMMER

There’s nothing better than starting your day with a yoga class at Congress Hall. Whether on the Grand Lawn or down on the beach, the combination of an expert instructor, the fresh sea breeze, the scent of hydrangeas and freshly cut grass and the beautiful setting create one of the best yoga experiences you’ll find anywhere.

Bird Watching

Cape May is one of the world’s most famous bird watching destinations and enthusiasts travel here from across the country to experience the wide variety of species that inhabit the area and pass through during migration. Check with Congress Hall's Concierge for tips on the best places to spot rare birds.
