    Relaxing and Pet Friendly, Avoid Cabin 7

    We had a restful stay on Drummond Island at the Yacht Haven Cottages and would consider staying with them on our next stay with a few takeaways from this trip. Perhaps this may help you as well in your selection of cabins hopefully.

    - We were assigned Cabin 7 that practically had no privacy as the interior could be seen from others outside from the patio slider on the road that passed our unit
    - The main door that opens to the cabin opens to the road that is also the entry and exit to all the other cabins so we would hear incoming and outgoing traffic.
    - The rear entry that is from the kitchen also faces the road that leads to the other units that gives a clear view in our kitchen and living room area
    - The 2 bedrooms and bathroom also have a clear view inside the other guests on the hill above us looking directly down. I caught someone looking down at me in the bathroom while peeing one morning while the window was open to vent the room.

    The clerk pitched this unit as one on sale and now we understood why this may have been - it's less desirable due to the reasons I pointed. I will definitely stay with them again BUT now I have better layout of the premises, I would opt for another unit directly on the waterfront or hillside looking down. The unit we were assigned was poorly constructed because you have no privacy.

    Inside the unit had a dated feel that was clean and the bedding was comfortable and wifi was fairly good. The TV options were not helpful as the screen was grainy so having some option for entertainment may help if you have kids along on your trip. Ive attached a few pics for reference to give you an idea and trust this will help you solidify your decision on where to stay or perhaps a better cabin than the one I was assigned. All the others were either waterfront or hilltop view but 7 was definitely not desirable. They are pet friendly and the price is reasonable. Plenty of areas to walk your little ones as well.

    Pets are now welcome in cabins

    Finally, our dog was welcomed to stay with us ina Fort Wilderness cabin!!!
    The price is $50 plus tax per day, not much more than boarding in a local kennel. Many Cast Members are not aware of the new policies.
    At checkin, after paying fee, you will receive a Pluto bag containing bowls, a mat, and poop baggies. Pets may remain unaccompanied up-to 7 hours. It’s a good idea to bring a carrier in case you want to transport your pet. As mentioned, stay within pet friendly areas. We would hate to lose privileges because of folks who don’t follow these rules.

    Fort Wilderness Review

    Love this campground but would love to see a few cabins that allow pets. Our dog is better mannered and causes less mess than some kids. Plus she is much quieter too! Wish disney would consider future pet friendly hotels or cabins.

    Dogs Love Vacation Too

    Fort Wilderness is very pet friendly as long as you have an RV. They do not allow pets in tents (which is understandable) or cabins. If you do decide to tent it or go with an RV they have great comfort stations! We went there in the evening and gave our dog a bath after being sprayed by a skunk. lol With that being said, they truly did make this campground for the dogs. There are so many beautiful paths to walk on with your dog. The dog park is fantastic! It gives your pet a chance to mingle and the adults a chance to get to know people from all over the world. I love this place and will always return.
