Pet Friendly

A stay at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek will be a vacation your pet will appreciate. We have a pet welcome basket full of items to ensure a comfortable stay for your pet and a Frisbee waiting for you upon arrival. Our meadow and forest creek trails provides great room for your pet to enjoy off leash exploration. Take a short 3 minute walk (approximately 150 yards) to the private beach at Buckhorn Cove, where your dog can play off the leash! Upon return, we have a pet bath at the Inn for your convenience.

We treat dogs like one of the family with treats always available at the front desk.

To ensure that all guests have an enjoyable stay, we’ll ask Pet Parents to sign the following Pet Policy when you check in:

I have read and agreed to the following Pet Policy for Cottages at Little River Cove and I promise that:

I will keep my pet off of all furniture including the bed, chairs or couches. A $100 cleaning penalty will be assessed for rooms that require cleaning any furniture that has pet hair.

My pet is not aggressive and is well socialized with other animals and with other people.

My pet’s vaccinations are up-to-date and current.

My pet is free of ticks and fleas.

My pet will be with me under my care at all times. I understand and agree that if I leave my pet unattended in the room I will assume financial responsibility for any damage that occurs. I agree to pay a $75 fee for all instances of complaints of unattended animals causing a disturbance to other guests.

My pet will be on a leash or in a carrier and under my control when outside.

I will clean up after my pet and dispose of any waste in the dumpster located in the rear of the property.

I will notify the management of any pet “accidents” immediately and request special cleaning efforts.

I will keep my pet off of all furniture including the bed, chairs or couches. I agree to pay an extra $100 cleaning penalty if, in the sole judgment of Cottages management, my rooms require excessive cleaning due to soiled bedspreads, furniture or carpeting.

I will clean off my pet if he/she is wet or dirty using the towels and/or pet shower provided before letting them in the room.

I will assume financial responsibility for any damage caused by my pet during my stay.

In addition to the 9+ acres of our grounds, the dog friendly Van Damme Beach is only a 1/2 mile from the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek, and there are many more pet friendly beaches and miles of walking trails in the area. We look forward to meeting your furry friends and making them feel welcome!
