Dog Friendly - Sorry No Cats

'Dogs are not our whole lives... but they make our lives whole.'

Annie has been in the dog business professionally since 1970... and still is. She operates Tailwaggers Dog Grooming and pet care at our home adjacent to Russelin' Leaves Cabins. We know how important your dog is to your family and wouldn't think of asking you to leave him/her behind while you're on vacation. Adhering to pet stipulations will insure a great time for all and guarantee that future guests traveling with their dog will be welcome.

  • A $10.00 per dog per night fee is charged.
  • Up to date vaccinations required.
  • Must be friendly, housebroken, and flea free.
  • Must be on leash on property.
  • May not be bathed in house or cabins.
  • Please clean up after your pet in all walking areas.
  • No wet or muddy dogs indoors.
  • Must not be a nuisance to other guests (i.e. barking).
  • May not be left unattended unless quietly crated.

Tailwaggers offers doggie daycare to guests when available. Feel free to visit the pet accommodations anytime for more details and information.

Cleaning Fees

We do not charge an automatic / non-refundable cleaning fee as many accommodations do. Our policy is to require a $100 refundable cash cleaning / damage deposit. You are asked to simply 'leave it like you found it' and get your deposit back.

Keeping the house / cabins clean during your stay is your reponsibility. We do a complete cleaning when you leave. Please leave laundry in baskets on porch.

There is a laundry room located at the house for everyone's personal use.

  • Please do not leave items unattended.
  • Please use garbage cans provided.
  • Please use recycle bins.
  • Please wash and put away all pots, pans, dishes, etc.
  • Please strip beds and put all linens and towels in baskets provided.
  • No bikes allowed in the cabins.
  • Absolutely no smoking in any unit.

Keeping your rental reasonably clean for us ensures guests that no unnecessary cleaning fees will be applied.
