OUR PUPPY POLICY
The Blue Spruce has two very friendly dogs (Dexter & Dixie) in residence. We travel with our dogs so we know what it is like to want to take your dog with you. Currently, we have set aside one room as a "dog friendly" room. Providing that room is available, guests can bring their dog(s) with them to The Blue Spruce. The following conditions apply:

  • Maximum two dogs
  • Guests must bring a travel kennel with them.
  • A fee of $25.00 per night per dog will be added to the bill. Any damage to the room caused by the dog(s) will be the responsibility of the owner and the cost will be added to the bill upon checkout.
  • If the dog barks and the barking can not be controlled, even with a bark collar - we can rent guests a citris-based bark collar for $5 per day - we reserve the right to ask that the dog be removed from the property and kennelled at an appropriate facility.
  • The guest agrees to hold Michael and Helene Byrnes and The Blue Spruce harmless and assumes full responsibility, financial or otherwise, for all damages and/or injury caused by (or to) the dog, however caused.
  • Arrangement must be made in advance. We will not allow any dogs on the property whose owners have not arranged for it at the time of booking. In this event, no refunds apply.
