You are responsible for your pet(s) at all times.
This implies keeping your pets out of the kitchen, and being responsible about letting your pet out as often as needed to avoid indoor accidents.
You cannot leave a pet tied up outside. This is unfenced countryside with no leash law, so a tied animal is vulnerable.
Dogs, and any cat that goes outdoors, should have flea/tick protection. Do not bring a pet with an active flea infestation! Your pet should be current with vaccinations.
If your pet sleeps with you, please tell me in advance, and I will make the bed accordingly - rather than charge a damage deposit. Pet beds are available.
I will supply all the pet towels you need. Please do not use guest towels for a pet.
Bring as much food and treats as you will need for your stay if you use premium brands, as local supplies are limited. I can supply bowls for food and water.
There is a designated area for pet relief, where you do not have to pick up after your pet. Elsewhere, please do pick up. Bags are available at the front desk.
You should be ready to keep your cat in a carrier when not in your room. It may be possible to have your cat enjoy the screened porch freely, but that will depend upon the other guests and pets. Since cat allergies are common, cats should not be with you in the living room.
Pet fees: $25 per stay (not per night) for one or two pets, dogs or cats. 5.3% tax applies to all charges. If you need to bring more than two pets, it will probably be fine, but discuss it with me first: call 804 832-6200 preferably between 11 am and midnight.
There are nearby pet-sitters and kennels. I will gladly help with any arrangements needed. If you know in advance that you'll need daytime pet care, I can try to arrange to stay home and take care of your pet(s) for a small fee. But as I sometimes have a foster dog from the county shelter, that would also depend on the animals' compatibility.
