Mendocino's Best Pet Friendly Lodging

There’s no need to search further for pet friendly hotels in Mendocino! The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek offers pet friendly lodging and activities so you don’t have to leave your furry family members at home.

A stay at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek will be a vacation you and your pet can appreciate. We treat dogs like part of the family and always have treats available at the front desk! We also provide a pet welcome basket in your room, full of items to ensure a comfortable stay for you and your pet and a Frisbee for them to play with. Our meadow and forest creek trails provide the opportunity for off-leash exploration, or take a short walk (about 5 minutes) to the private beach at Buckhorn Cove, where your dog can play off-leash!

Your pets are our guests too and we’ll strive to make them feel like they are on vacation! All of our rooms at the Inn accept pets. There is a “pet fee” added to your room fee to cover the additional costs in cleaning and maintenance. We deep clean and ionize each room after a pet has been in it to guarantee the highest standards of cleanliness for all our guests.

To ensure all guests have an enjoyable stay, we ask all Pet Parents to sign the following Pet Guidlines upon check in

Pet Guidelines

We understand that your pet is a beloved member of your family, and we appreciate you bringing your pet to The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. Please familiarize yourself with some of the hotel’s basic guidelines, as we strive to make your stay and that of our other guests as enjoyable as possible.

The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek reserves the right to deny acceptance of any “pet guest,” particularly in situations where the pet becomes “unwelcome” due to aggressive behavior or disturbing other guests, the hotel may request that the “pet guest” and its owners seek accommodations elsewhere, which we will gladly arrange.
