Inn Room Descriptions, Rates, and Reservations

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 human and canine comfort. 

Every private guest room features a king or queen bed, a private bathroom, comfortable seating, all the requisite e-menities, custom built dog beds,  air conditioning in the warmer months, and easy access to our beautiful grounds all year round.  Most rooms have an electric fireplace stove for added warmth and ambience in winter.   Several rooms can sleep up to four humans.

All rooms have 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).

Depending upon travel dates and room choice, nightly rates for two humans and up to two dogs include use of our on-site, dog-care facility, unlimited access to our massive fenced in dog park with agility course, a full country breakfast for humans, and a great time for all.   There is a small charge of $25 per night for each additional human and dog.
