Putting out the welcome mat for pets
After having a very informal pet policy for the last few years we decided to make it official. We are now going to welcome guest pets in two of our guesthouse rooms, the Willow and Dogwood rooms. The guesthouse rooms are the most logical choice because they have direct access to outdoors, so guest pets don't have to enter the inn at all. One guesthouse room and the cottages will continue to be pet free so that those guests with allergies do not have to worry about dander.
We'll provide pet treats, bowls and bedding, as well as trash containers and bags for pet waste.
The fee is $25 per pet per night. We request that guest pets be crated when left alone, and that they be current on flea treatment and vaccinations.
Of course Roxy and Rascal, our own dog and cat will continue to be the chief greeters in the inn itself, and the barn cats Eeny, Meenie, Miney and Mo share the barn with our sheep Buster and Butterfly.
And speaking of sheep, their annual haircuts are scheduled to take place the first weekend of May, during the Spring Nature weekend. We still have a few rooms available for this fun and exciting weekend. Join our naturalist to go out owl-calling, morel-hunting, bird-watching, eagle-spotting, artifact-hunting and many other activities. Check our calendar page or give us a call for more information.
