Pet-Friendly Activities

Pet Policies and Fees

Please remember that pets must never be left unaccompanied in your room during your visit with us. When you go out to enjoy meals and/or the great outdoors, please be sure to bring your pet with you. Idyllwild is very Pet Friendly and there is also plenty of shaded parking, and 'Doggie Daycare' is just a half-mile from the Inn. For your pet's safety, s/he must be on-leash at all times until you and your pet are safely in your room and the door is closed. We hope your pet will enjoy your private patio, but please note that should you care to leave your other door (facing the parking lot) open, pets must be leashed inside the room as well. We want your pet safe and happy!

Please note that there is a $20 per night cleaning fee for each pet--2 pets maximum.  ONLY A SUBSET OF OUR ROOMS ARE PET-FRIENDLY.  Those rooms will be clearly indicated when you check availability.  We will also need to know about your pet(s) prior to your arrival.  If you arrive with a pet that was not indicated on your reservation, we reserve the right to move you to a pet-friendly room or turn you away if no pet-friendly rooms are available at the time.
