We have dispelled all notions that a dog friendly hotel should be second rate. Each of our immaculate, first class, dog themed accommodations are lovingly designed for maximum privacy and, yes...human comfort too.
Each private room, suite, and cottage features a king or queen bed, a private bathroom, comfortable seating, all the requisite e-menities, custom built dog beds, individual heating and cooling control, smart TVs with Roku, and easy access to our beautiful grounds all year round. Most have an electric fireplace or stove for added warmth and ambience in winter. Several accommodations can sleep up to four humans. Even though we cater to dogs, all of our guest accommodations are mindfully designed to provide a hypo-allergenic setting upon your arrival.
With multiple entrances and exits throughout the inn and guest rooms, all units now have easy access to the outside for adventuring and potty breaks. Each suite and room also has easy access to a guest kitchenette with a refrigerator, dishes, utensils, wine glasses, a prep area, a microwave, and pretty much anything you might need to prepare a simple lunch, dinner, or snack for yourself or your dog(s). Both cottages are equipped with a full kitchen and private grill.
Nightly rates include use of our on-site, dog-care facility, unlimited access to our fenced in dog park with agility course, a full country breakfast for guests within the inn, and a great time for all. Breakfast for cottage guests is included for the first morning and then only $15 per person each morning thereafter.
