Frequently Asked Questions

How many dogs can I bring?


We do not have a limit on the number of dogs allowed. Our nightly rates include up to 2 dogs. There is a fee of $25/night per additional dog.




Do you allow pitbulls?


Yes! We have absolutely NO breed or size restrictions.




How do I check pricing & availability?


Go to the Rates & Reservations page of the website. Scroll down the page to enter your desired dates and click "Search". The booking engine will list which, if any, accommodations are available for the dates you have selected.




What steps are you taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19?


  • All of our accommodations are thoroughly cleaned with isopropyl alcohol prior to each guest's arrival.
  • We have implemented a no-contact check in procedure.
  • We have temporarily closed our clubhouse. The outdoor pool and hot tub area remains open.
  • Our staff wear masks when working with other staff members or guests.




What items are provided during my stay?


All of our accommodations have a fully stocked kitchen with an oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, toaster oven, drip coffee machine, pots, pans, utensils, dishware and silverware. We provide a "starter package" of toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, bar soap, dish soap, sponge, laundry detergent, and coffee filters. We recommend bringing extra paper products and any other items you may run out of during your stay. All linens, pillows and bath towels are also provided. We do not supply pool towels.




What is your cancellation policy?


For reservations cancelled 31 days or more prior to the arrival date, a full refund will be issued, less a $100 administrative fee. Reservations cancelled 15-30 days prior to arrival will receive a 50% refund. Guests who cancel their reservation14 days prior to arrival will receive NO refund.




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.
