Pet Friendly Rooms in Cape May

Your dog can enjoy vacation too!

We welcome domestic cats and dogs and offer the following information to make your stay more comfortable. The Madison Avenue Beach Club has designated Pet Friendly rooms. Because we have set aside rooms specifically for pets we ask that you indicate you are bringing a pet when making your reservation.


Our housekeeping staff is not permitted to enter the room with a pet unattended. Maid service is provided daily as long as the pet is crated or removed from the room at the time of cleaning. This is at the discretion of Management. We take great care in servicing these rooms between stays. However, if you are allergic to some pets and not others, there still may be an allergic factor to consider. We will not refund for an allergic reaction.

Beacon Animal Rescue

The Madison supports and donates a portion of our revenue to the Beacon Animal Rescue. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing domestic animals that are about to be euthanized in shelters, giving them the care they need, and finding homes for them. We spay and neuter, vaccinate, heartworm test dogs, Feline Leukemia and Feline Aids test, and deworm. If you live in our area, we would love for you to foster a dog or cat, volunteer to care for the animals, or help in fundraising.
