PET COURTESY

If you and your four-legged family members are joining us at the "Fireside Lodge". We request the following courtesies towards our property and other guests:


We welcome dogs of all breeds and sizes. However, aggressive dogs of any breed or size should be left at home.   If your dog shows aggressive behavior that is protective and/or unfriendly to strangers or to other pets then it is considered an aggressive dog.  If you decide to bring your dog and it exhibits this type of behavior the owner or management will ask you to please find other accommodations - no refunds will be given if asked to leave in this case. All dogs are required to be under the control and visual observation of their owner at all times.

- Please keep your dog on a leash outside of the room if you feel it is necessary. (you may be asked to keep your dog on a leash if they are not social with others)
- NO BARKING allowed. Do not leave your dog unattended in the room unless you are certain they will not bark in your absence. We cannot tolerate this disturbance to other guests. Please leave your cell number with the front desk just in case.
- DO NOT LEAVE YOUR DOG ALONE in the room unless you are certain they will not damage the room in any way. Otherwise, please bring a kennel for your dog. (Any damage will be charged to the credit card on file.)
- Please Let us know if anything occurs due to the actions of your dog. We won't bite, but we would like to know so as to clean up (we have our own steam cleaner on site) or repair something before it becomes a problem for our next guests.
- We provide special flannel dog blankets to put over the patchwork quilts - please use these regardless if your dog gets on the bed or not... It helps deter dog hair and outside debris.
- We can give extra old towels if needed for your pet's feet, again prolonging the life of our carpets. Don't hesitate to ask for these!

- Please pick up after your dog...we can also provide you with extra bags for this "dog duty"
