Walking Trails for Dogs On our property you and your dog will find 30 acres of nature preserve with walking trails for long walks. Our walking trails take roughly a half-an-hour to walk with beautiful natural scenery throughout the trails.

We have dog towels and blankets available to help guard our bedding and furniture. These are available at the front desk. Please ask for any supplies you need.

Supervised off-leash play is permitted if you think your dog will safely accommodate the guests, barn cats, and horses. We trust our guests to have good judgement about whether their dogs will be a good guests. If you need advice about any challenges your dog has, please ask.
