We provide a "starter package" of toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, bar soap, dish soap, sponge, laundry detergent, and coffee filters.

Where are my dogs allowed on property?


With the exception of our pool/hot tub area and other guests' yards, leashed dogs have full reign here at our Resort. Leashes are required outside of your accommodation and fenced-in yard. We welcome you and your dog(s) to explore our property, including our nature trails and private stream.




What vaccinations are required for my dog?


For the safety of all dog guests, we require notice from your vet that your dog is current on their vaccination or titers for DHLLP (a.k.a. DHL2P or 5 in 1) and rabies. We recommend the Bortadella vaccine also, but it is not a requirement.




My dog is a barker. Will he/she be allowed to stay?


Yes. Most of our guests are "dog people" who understand and appreciate dogs. But please be respectful of those guests who may not. Luckily, most of our accommodations are individual houses on their own acre of land (with the exception of the duplex units). So only the loudest and most persistent barking or howling should be heard by neighboring vacationers. However, in the event that your dog's barking or howling becomes overwhelmingly disruptive, we do reserve the right to ask you to leave without refund (this has never happened and we would be very hesitant to enforce this except in an extreme case).




My dog does not like to be approached by people or other dogs. Can he/she stay?


Yes. If your dog is sensitive to being approached by people or other dogs while on leash, you will be asked to tie a yellow bandanna (provided) around his or her collar to inform other guests and our staff of your dog's need for personal space.




Are fireworks allowed at your resort?


Fireworks are strictly prohibited. If any there is any evidence of fireworks you will be evicted & will lose your deposit.




Does our dog need to be crated if we go out?


We do not require crates. If your dog is crate trained you may bring your own crate, we do not provide them. For your dog's well being please do not "lock" them in a bedroom or leave them unattended in the yard or deck. This may cause undue stress or anxiety on them.




Do you have outdoor grills?


Yes, we have charcoal grills located in your driveway. You need to bring your own charcoal & lighter fluid. We provide utensils.

If I want to go fishing in your private stream do I need a license? Do you rent fishing equipment?


Because our stream is located on our private property you do not need a fishing license. We do not provide any fishing poles or bait, you must bring your own.




Do you have food delivery in your area?


Yes we have GrubHub, Doordash & a local service called HungryWeDeliver. Please make sure you use the following address: 220 Village Lane, Sciota, PA 18354 & your house name otherwise they will come to the clubhouse.




Do you supply dog beds?


No, if your furbaby has a special bed or blanket that like to sleep on feel free to bring it with you. If they like to sleep in bed or sit on the couch & watch tv with you they are welcome.




I see you are on the same property as Big Valley Timeshare Resort, if I'm coming as a Timeshare guest can I bring my dog?


No. Good Dog Vacations is a different resort. We are specifically designed for dogs & their families. Due to contract specifications Timeshare units are not dog-friendly.
