When planning a vacation, what is brought to mind is usually a pet friendly hotel or perhaps a resort. However, if taking a pet along, then consider a pet friendly vacation rental, especially if you plan to stay in one place for a while.
Vacation rentals generally come equipped like a home with one or more bedrooms, sheets, towels, an equipped kitchen and some degree of privacy. Depending on the length of your stay, your vacation rental may include maid services.
There are basically three types of pet friendly vacation rentals:
1. Places where a group of cottages or cabins are grouped around some recreational facility, generally either a lake or a river. You will find lots to do with your pet at these places including hiking, boating, tubing, swimming, tennis and horse back riding.
2. Mountain cabins generally offer more isolation, but still allow for a perfect family vacation with a pet, as there will be recreational activities nearby.
3. Private homes are available that vary from a small home, either in a city or in the countryside, to palatial beach front homes that may include servants, private pools and chefs and more.
When staying in a pet friendly vacation rental, take good care of the furnishings. If your pet is allowed on the furniture at home, don’t forget to bring extra sheets to protect the couch! A little prevention will save a lot of time when it is time to leave.
