Premier all-season resort, Massanutten Resort recently announced the introduction of dog-friendly lodging options. As pet ownership continues to rise, Massanutten Resort is anticipating the needs of dog moms and dads, making traveling more seamless and enjoyable for the entire family. With three new dog-friendly lodging options and 6,000 acres of outdoor space, the resort features an array of amenities for guests to enjoy exciting mountain adventures with their fur babies. Massanutten will continue to expand services with additional amenities for pups in spring of 2023, including a dog park and dog friendly walking paths.
“For many, pets are an integral part of their families, including myself, but as people begin traveling more frequently again, it has become increasingly difficult to find adequate pet care and many would like the benefit to travel with their pup anyway” said Sarah Elson, business relations director at Massanutten Resort. “We have introduced dog-friendly lodging to alleviate the stress and hesitation of traveling without your pet, and we are happy to welcome our four-legged friends with open arms.”
Massanutten Resort allows a maximum of two dogs, 70lbs or under, per reservation, with a $225 per dog fee. Pet amenities included for each pup during their stay are a dog bed, food and water bowls, and a toy all with a Massanutten logo. Guests can choose from a handful of dog-friendly condos available in the following three areas of the Resort:
Regal Vistas – The Resort’s newest condos provide exclusive experiences and expansive views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With large living areas, multiple bedrooms, two bathrooms, a garage, and kitchen, dogs and their owners have plenty of space. This gated community includes an outdoor pool and picnic area.
Woodstone Meadows – Known for its beautiful and spacious condos, Woodstone Meadows is ideal for large dog-loving families as they sleep up to 12 guests. Families will feel comfortable bringing their four-legged friend as Woodstone Meadows offers full privacy and is in close proximity to the resort’s activity centers.
Eagle Trace – Fido will feel right at home in town-house-style condos nestled in the mountains of Massanutten. Eagle Trace provides easy access to grassy areas for pups to play outside.
Massanutten’s dog-friendly lodging options come with a few rules for both dog and dog-owners to follow. Dogs must be fully trained, have current identification tags, and be up-to-date with vaccinations prior to visiting the Resort. “Donnie’s Rules” for on-resort regulations – such as dog owners being responsible for cleaning up after their pet and leashing requirements in all public areas – are in effect.
