We decided we needed to find a vaca place that would let us bring both out little dogs this year and were delighted that Dan & Kathleen let us do so with a $50 pet fee. The bonus was a shady, fenced garden off of a gated deck -the slats on the deck were not wide enough to allow our little 8 lb. pup to put her head through! They loved being able to wander all over that yard for hours and sniff out all the wonderful scents of previous tenants. Then after dark we closed the deck gate to limit them to the deck, which they also loved hanging out on. Other than a few steps up to get into the house, we loved that it was all 1-floor living!
This was one of the most relaxing places we've ever stayed at, with hundreds of digital TV channels for the rainy days, a dishwasher [which was Not Me!] the gated deck with lots of seating and umbrella patio table for dining, a gas grill for quick easy meals, microwave to heat up our doggy bags from many terrific area restaurants. And talk about a fully functioning/ well-outfitted kitchen, not only every pot & pan, dishes, glasses, utensils imaginable, but a full spice rack, which delighted me! We even found a terrific groomer within a few miles to groom 1 of the dogs.
The only small negative is that it's a busy street off of an even busier street and there is a lot of construction noise behind the house and down the road, loud earth-movers pounding away starting early morning, so it's perfect for morning people. But all the dozens of positives [including fully provisioned laundry area on the same floor outside the bedrooms] completely outweighed the one negative.
