    Great Location and beautiful

    The hotel is beautiful and there are several places around to take your dog for a walk (going to a park would require a drive). When we checked in it didn't indicate on our reservation that we had dogs, but we had an extra bed and our own bowls. The room came with a large dog bed and one bowl for food/water.

    Great place

    Great location and food. Hotel was clean and they provided a dog bed and dog bowls. Had a very good time and our dog did too! Hotel was very quiet so we didn’t have any issues with our dog barking at noises.
