Service Animal Policy
POLICY FOR LODGING SERVICE ANIMALS, AND SERVICE ANIMALS IN TRAINING IN SHORT-TERM RENTALS
In order to preserve the health, safety, and well-being of all our lodging guests, now and in the future, we do not allow pets in our facilities. However, to better accommodate service animals and service animals in training we have created the following policy requirements to house a service dog, or service dog in training in our lodging units:
The service animal or service animal in training must be fully housed broken-no exceptions.
The service animals must be under control exerted by a harness, leash, or voice commands, the service animal in training shall be under control exerted by the use of a harness, in all public areas of the building.
The service animal, or service animal in training, shall never be left in the lodging unit alone (without a supervising human in the unit).
We customarily charge service animals and service animals in training a damage/flea/extra cleaning fee of $400, which covers the cost of extra cleaning, professional flea spraying on departure, and/or damage caused by the animal. Up to half of this amount can be refunded if there is no extra cleaning or damage from the service animal or animal in training. It is our policy to professionally spray for fleas/ticks after any service animal, or service animal in training vacates our units.
Service animals and service animals in training are not allowed on the furniture or bedding. They must remain on the floor only.
Additionally, we require a written response to the following questions prior to check-in:
Is the animal required due to a disability?
What is the nature of the work or task the animal is trained to do or perform or is being trained to do or perform?
What is the age of the service animal, or service animal in training?
Written response to the questions above indicates your agreement to follow this policy. If you fail to provide a written response, and do not agree to our policy, you will not be allowed to check in.
Violation of some, or any, of the above policies can result in asking that the service animal or service animal in training be removed from the premises immediately and it will not be allowed to return.
