FEW BASIC RULES AND NOTES OF IMPORTANCE -
We have been accepting pets for more than 36 years and are among the first Bed and Breakfast Innkeepers in California to welcome pets. It is a decision we have never regretted.
In recent years, many hotels and inns have started accepting pets, recognizing that pet owners represent 63% of all households. As a marketing program these hotels offer pets specialized menus, fluffy beds, toys and treats. Many of these "amenities" can be hazardous to your pet's health - especially unsual food and treats and bedding that hasn't been sanitized. We are very careful to provide amenities that ensure your pet will return from vacation healthy and refreshed as we hope you feel.
We have no weight, breed or other restrictions. Below are our basic "rules" designed to assure a comfortable stay for your pet.
• Please do not leave your pet unattended in your room without
letting us know in case he or she is uncomfortable in new surroundings.
We have had doors chewed and badly scratched. Crate trained dogs feel safe and secure in their crates.
• Guests have taken
care of damage, but the issue is that their pets were unhappy.
We find that dogs are most happy accompanying their owners when
exploring the area. Our weather is cool and with windows left
open, no harm should come to them if you leave them in your
car when your are off the property.
• We ask that guests
pick up after their dogs and provide stations with bags and
trash receptacles throughout the property.
• By the way,
well behaved dogs are welcome in our lobby but not our dining
room. If you would like breakfast or dinner to be served in
the lobby, we are happy to accommodate you.
• Good etiquette assures
that all guests will have an enjoyable stay. If you need anything
special from veterinary services to pet sitters, and special
foods, just ask and we will happily accommodate.
•Cats are not great travelers,
however some are accustomed to traveling and are very comfortable
in their carriers. Two guests brings two Mexican hairless cats
in wheeled carriers who accompany them and their white German
• Please remember
to keep your pets on a leash. Ellie
and Murphy are off leash to greet guest dogs and their friends.
• All our domestic animals have
little choice about where they are and how we treat them. We
know this and, here, animals come first. We care about their
health and well being and there are some who are older and infirm
and checked daily.
• When you are exploring the Inn
and its ten acres, you'll find our horses, Scooter, a bay. and
Storm. a pinto; three very elderly and three llamas.
The Inn is also home to many cats, raccoons, ducks, deer, opossums,
Stellar Jays, Ravens, skunks, and a variety of song birds.
• You might find a seagull, pigeon
on other animal being rehabilitated.
• For your pets, we supply bowls
for food and water, litter bags, a treat, covers to protect
furniture and bedding.
• There is a $45.00 charge per
stay, for the first pet. Additional pets are $22.50.
• Please Note: We avoid treats that will disturb your pet's digestion and do
not offer a "special menu" for dogs. Special menus
can be upsetting. We make our dog treats using only organic
sweet potatoes which have been well received by our pet visitors,
literally and figuratively. We can provide steamed vegetables
if your dog is on a special diet. Dog beds are available on
request but suggest that if your pet has a favorite bed or blanket
that you bring that with you. Pets are more comfortable with
their own beds and their customary diets.
