A real gem that will make your stay a memorable one, and leave you wanting to come back again and again.

Well behaved and housebroken pets are always welcome (woof!), but a one time fee of $25 will apply, regardless of number of pets or number of nights spent at the cottage. This nominal fee covers the additional cleaning, sanitization and laundry involved in servicing the cottage on your departure. We also supply complimentary dog treats, poop bags and towels for your furry friends feet throughout your stay. We do have a very strict policy on picking up after your pets, so please use the bags and trash can provided otherwise your stay may be cut short. We respectfully request only responsible pet owners come and share this beautiful space please. When you select the number of guests during booking, there is a drop down box to tick for pets just below. Failure to check box will result in you being back charged if you do in fact being your pet.
