    Ours are the only cats and they reside in the main house. We enjoy our animals and know having yours with you can enhance your vacation. However, anytime animals are introduced to a strange situation, things may not go as predicted. If you are bringing a dog or a horse, we require a signed liability release form.

    With prior agreement, your dog is welcome in the Log Cabin or Forest Edge. The Main Lodge is home to our pets, and we respect their domain by not having visiting pets in the main lodge. Correspondingly, our pets are not allowed in either the Log Cabin or Forest Edge.

    Please bring your dog's bed so he/she will be comfortable and have something familiar. You are also welcome to use the 80+ acres for walking, running, playing with your pet but please keep them away from the horses. Should there be a problem, we will ask you to keep your dog away from the other animals and with you -- either inside, or in our outside portable kennel, or on a leash. We prefer the pet not be left at SBL while you are gone for the day.

    Please know that our dogs Oreo, has the run of the property. Also there may be another visiting dogs with other guests, so the situation could be confusing for the pets.

  • Guest Horses

We have 2 large (60ft) sand corrals with water and loafing shed, separate from our horses and with lots of room to stretch. The corrals are visible from the main house. Be sure your horse's shots are current.

    Horse trailer: Our driveway entrance is up a hill with some relatively tight turns. Please discuss with us any concerns regarding your trailer access. (For reference, we drive a Ford F150 with a bumper hitch two horse slant trailer without any trouble.) But if you're bigger, be sure to talk to us about it. We have a couple of places near the barn and corrals to park your trailer.
