Dog Friendly

Bring Your Paw-Pals

Our dogs are special to us, as yours is to you. So we don’t just welcome dogs at Prospect Hill, we embrace them! Well-behaved, house-broken dogs are welcome in four of our cottages. Though you’ll generally want to keep your furry friend on a leash, you’ll have 40 acres of gorgeous grounds to explore… so bring your walking shoes! “Rocky”, “Ruby” and “Collette” are eager to meet you!

Dog-Friendly Cottages

Spacious room with a king bed, tangerine walls, and wood panel ceiling

Sanco Pansy’s

This spacious and secluded cottage has a covered porch that overlooks a huge meadow and is adjacent to our nature trail… both offering plenty of space for your dog to run!

Overseer’s

An extra-large cottage with a separate sitting room and lots of doggy-space… as the tree garden, swimming pool, and horse pastures are mere steps away.

Boy’s Log Cabin

Our smallest dog-friendly accommodation, this rugged cabin is more than 320 years old! The rear deck overlooks the swimming pool, kitchen gardens, and the horse pasture.

Summer Kitchen

With a 4-acre meadow directly behind it, this cottage makes dog-walks easy and convenient. And its large brick hearth is a favorite resting spot for furry friends during the hot summer days!

Pet Policy

Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome, but only in four specific cottages (and we must know in advance they’re coming with you).

We prefer you to not leave your dog alone in the cottage while you’re out for the day (even well-behaved dogs can be “destructive” or “loud” in strange surroundings), but if you must… please use a crate.

Generally speaking, your dog must be leashed when outdoors (however, if you’re not near other guests, the parking area, or our large animals… we’re glad to see your dog run freely and exercise)!

We are unable to accommodate a late check-out when you bring your dog, as our housekeepers perform an extra-deep sanitization of your cottage upon departure.

We charge a pet fee of $25 per dog/per night. While we don’t generally collect an extra “pet deposit”, dog owners are liable for any out-of-the-ordinary cleaning bills or repairs, should they be required.

We’ll supply your dog with a towel, food & water bowls and plastic refuse bag; you bring the dog food, leash and crate… please poop-scoop.

We typically refresh guest rooms between 9:00 am – 2:00 pm, but your dog must be with you, be crated, or not in the cottage. If you prefer, put the “Do Not Disturb” sign out, and we’ll skip your cottage.

Sorry, but we’re unable to accommodate any animals other than dogs.

If a dog is not kept under control or unreasonably disturbs other guests, we may ask you to kennel your dog or vacate the premises, with no refund for a shortened stay. Obviously, you are responsible in the event a human or other dog suffers injury (or damage) from your dog.
