Cancellation Policy

When reservations aren’t cancelled in the proper time, it prevents other customers from booking that space.

For non-peak season lodging: Paws and Claws requires notice by lobby close the night before your reservation. Failure to properly cancel can result in a fee equal to a 2 night stay of the lodging choice reserved (special consideration may be given to emergency situations).

For peak season lodging: Paws and Claws requires 72-hours notice. Failure to do so can result in a fee equal to a 3 night stay of the lodging choice reserved.

Please be kind to us, and we’ll do the same in return. We understand things can change.

Holiday Information and Closures

Our staff will be on-site taking great care of your pet, but the lobby will be closed for the following holidays:**

New Year’s Day, Easter Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day

**24-hour drop-off and pick-up is available with reservation.

We do book up and have a substantial waiting list during Spring Break, Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.  It is imperative that proper cancellation policies are followed so that any client who is on a waiting list can be accommodated. If policies are not respected, your credit card will be charged the equivalent of a 3 night stay in the accommodations that you had requested.
