Marsh Hollow welcomes pets, with the exception of puppies, cats & kittens. So we are probably more “dog friendly” than totally pet friendly.
Most dogs leave Marsh Hollow happy and exhausted. There is plenty of space to run and play. The Shadyside and Pinewood cabin decks are surrounded by railings with gates. They do a good job of confining dogs, but are not escape proof, especially for small dogs. The deck at Shadyside Cabin is 10 feet above ground.
The Cottage railing does NOT enclose the patio.
Our pet fee is $30 per visit (not per day) for up to two dogs.
During your visit, just keep these etiquette guidelines in mind:
- Make sure your dog has been treated with flea and tick preventive medicine before visiting Marsh Hollow. We don’t want your dog to carry home any unwanted critters, and we also do not want any uninvited critters visiting our cabins and cottage.
- Bring only well-behaved, non aggressive dogs. If your best friend is territorial, he or she will not enjoy the vacation. Our dog Bode is on the property, although not often at Shadyside unless we visit.
- Ideally, your pet will remain on the floor. However, please cover any beds or furniture he/she will be allowed on. Bring non-hairy covers!
- Place food and water containers on a mat, or feed your pet outside.
- Keep your dog leashed unless very well trained. There are hundreds of acres of woods behind the property and vacationing dogs have been lost in the Hills (not from Marsh Hollow, knock-on-wood).
- Dogs may visit all of the state park sites, but are not allowed in either the Conkles Hollow or Rockbridge Nature Preserves.
- Wipe off dirty or muddy paws before your pet enters the cabin. Bring rags for this purpose.
- Please clean up after your dog, taking special care around the cabin and in the field.
