Paws and Claws Pet Resort offers several overnight lodging options:  Cage-Free Luxury Villas, Rustic Cabins, Basic Condos or the Bunkhouse (for non-socialized or unaltered pets).  Accommodations come together in our gorgeous facility for every pet’s enjoyment and your peace of mind.

Pets enjoy full DayCamp benefits that include playing all day for no extra fee, or you may tailor your pet’s stay for its comfort level.  Private accommodations mean your pets can have their own bed (or one of ours) and toys from home so their stay is comfortable. We are proud that Paws and Claws Pet Resort is the most personal overnight facility in the St. Croix Valley and it’s surrounding areas.
