What is your pet policy?​

We are dog lovers and dog owners here! First off, we only allow dogs (no cats or other pets)​. Dogs must be on leash at all times near the cabins and the clubhouse/pool. If you leave the property you must take your dog with you or find a dog sitter (we have a list of options below). Owners must pick up after their dogs in the cabin area.

 

Dogs absolutely cannot be on beds or couches. We do not charge an extra fee for dogs but we will charge a fee if there is dog hair on the bed as this typically ruins the blanket/duvet cover. Dogs can be off leash on the old golf course.

Can we leave our dog in our cabin while we are at Yosemite?​

Unfortunately the answer is no. Though it is rare, the power does sometimes go out here and we cannot be responsible for pets left alone in cabins.

 

If you need someone to take care of your dog while you are out, we highly recommend our friend & neighbor Kim Owens. Kim is a certified dog trainer, certified in canine CPR and runs the foster program for the local SPCA. You can reach her at 714.785.6264 or at kim.owens@sti.net. Kim lives here in Ahwahnee, just a few miles away.​

If Kim is not available we recommend contacing Mysham for the Love of Dogs in Ahwahnee at 559.658.7122, All Critters Sitters in Oakhurst at 559.683.7977, Elizabeth London in Coarsegold at 559.676.8954, or Doris Cook in Oakhurst at 559.658.6263.

What is your cancelation and deposit policy?​

If you reserve directly with us, we offer a 14 day cancellation policy. If you cancel your reservation more than 14 days before arrival, there is no penalty. After 14 days we charge the card on file a non-refundable deposit of the first night of your stay. The balance of your stay is charged to the card on file the morning of your arrival.​

If you booked through a different service (Airbnb, Expedia, etc.) please refer to our cancellation policy on that platform as they may differ from our standard policy.

Starting on the day of arrival, stays can be extended but can not reduced.
