  • We Love our Furry Four-legged Guests (Pet Policy)

    • First and foremost, dogs must be very well-behaved and well-trained furry guests.
    • Depending on availability, we accept up to 2 guest dogs in the inn at one time.
    • We require that guest dogs be bathed and groomed before coming to the inn.
    • Please present proof of vaccinations at check-in.
    • There is a daily fee of $25.00 for each dog.
    • Because Quinn is a service dog and must not be distracted while working, guest pups need to be “invisible” and on a leash at all times.
    • Guest pets must be walked off property, and we expect that our guests will clean up after the pets completely. Lenox does have a stoop-and-scoop bylaw as well as a leash bylaw.
    • While the dog owners are not in their room, the dog should be crated in the room.
    • Of course, we ask that your dog NOT share your bed, but please remove the comforter and shams, just in case.
    • When guests leave the inn, the dog must accompany them or be crated in their room. We expect that dogs will not disturb other guests by barking or whining.
    • Upon arrival, the dog owner will sign a waiver agreeing to pay for any damages caused or extra-cleaning needed due to the dog.
    • If your dog is not well behaved or disturbs other guests by barking, the inn does have the right to ask the owners to kennel their dog or leave. No refunds will be offered.
