Our Dog Boarding and Day Care Services

Overnight Dog Boarding

Why stay in a kennel when you can vacation in a cottage?!

The Cottages provides a fun-filled, luxurious boarding adventure for your dog! No more feeling guilty when you leave your dogs behind. We are luxurious enough for a Pekingese and spacious enough for a Blue Heeler!

Our Unique Spacious Cottages + Love + Exercise = A Vacation for your Dog!

Your dog will enjoy a spacious 6’x12′ climate controlled interior living room with day-long access to a partially covered 12’x10′ private deck, and a private gravel yard, if desired. Throughout the day, your dog will spend time in one of our 5 play yards and will get lots of personal loving attention from our caretakers. Overnight, your dog will be able to relax in a private and quiet room. 

Plus 5% of profits are donated to our non-profit (which is in the works!) that helps homeless dogs find their forever homes. ​

Cost per night for 1 dog: $65

Add an additional family dog to board overnight in the same living space (there is plenty of room!) for only $30

Add a third dog in the same space for only $20 more

In case you dislike math, this adds up to:

Cost per night for 2 dogs in the same space: $95

Cost per night for 3 dogs in the same space: $115

Please carefully review our vaccination policy:

To keep all of our four legged guests safe, we require proof of up to date vaccinations for Rabies, Distemper (DHPP) and Bordetella. All vaccines must be administered at least two weeks prior to staying with us unless it is a booster. If you have any questions please see the FAQ section, or reach out to us and we’d be happy to help.
