Go ahead, bring your dog on vacation!
You asked, and we listened. We have received many calls about whether Tall Pines Inn is “pet-friendly.” It is always hard to turn away a guest, for any reason. We understand that pets are family members too. We also would like to accept pets of all kinds, but ultimately we have to develop a guideline for accepting pets at Tall Pines Inn.
We hope that this will be the start of some very happy pet owners.
So what pets will Tall Pines Inn accept?
Tall Pines Inn will allow dogs only, of small to medium size up to 25 pounds. If you have questions about bringing your dog, please talk to the owners before you show up with your dog.
What units will accept pets?
We understand that there are guests who have pet allergies, and have concerns about accommodations that have been exposed to animal dander. For this reason, all of our original cabins and Jacuzzi Suites will remain pet-free. Pets will only be accepted into our “family-oriented” Duplex units. These units are also nicely positioned at the back of our property so that dogs have room to roam without coming into contact with traffic of other guests.
Why did we make the decision to go Pet-Friendly?
As we progressed with the property, we could not find a clear reason to not accept small to medium size well behaved dogs.
But my dog is a service dog!
The pet policy does not apply to appropriately licensed service animals with proper identification.
Pet Policy: We will ask that each guest that brings in a dog, acknowledge and sign our pet policy.
Dogs are welcome at Tall Pines Inn in the Family Duplex Units only. A $30.00 one-time, non-refundable fee is charged for each room where a pet is a guest, and a credit card must be left on file.
The maximum pet weight allowed is 25 pounds. We limit the number of pets to 1 dog per Duplex Unit. If your pet is left alone in your unit, it must be crated at all times. Please provide a crate for your pet. If you do not have a pet crate, notify us prior to arrival that you will need one. We will have a crate brought to your unit prior to check-in free of charge. Please understand, for everyone’s safety, if the pet is not crated you will be requested to take your pet with you when you are not in the unit.
We provide waste pick-up bags for your pet, and request that you dispose of the used bags in marked receptacles. These are never to be disposed of in the cabins or Duplex units. It is our pleasure to host your pet at Tall Pines Inn but we ask that your pet be a good guest in return.
IMPORTANT: Pets are not allowed on the beds or furniture. If extra cleaning is necessary, or if damages occur due to your pet, you will be charged the cost of the extra cleaning or repair. We charge $150.00 – $300.00 deep cleaning/damage fee for cleaning or repairs performed as a result of a pet. You will receive an itemized bill.
