The evaluation process is conducted at the Resort at least 72 hours prior to check in, and is usually completed in approximately 15 minutes.
Diet requirements for Overnight Guests
To avoid unnecessary stomach upset, we require that all of our Overnight Guests arrive with their own food. Please prepare each meals serving size in a separate Ziploc baggie with your Pet's name on it for each day of his/her stay. We do not charge an additional fee for preparing and serving our Guest's food.
*An additional fee of $2 per day will be assessed for the use of house food
The safety and well being of our Guests is of utmost priority. In the rare event that a Guest should require medical attention while in our care, every effort will be made to contact you, your veterinarian and/or your emergency contact person. At our sole discretion, we reserve the right to obtain necessary veterinary medical care for all of our resort Guests. Carolyn Selavka, VMD, of Baystate Mobile Veterinary Services is our Veterinarian of choice. Utilizing a state of the art mobile veterinary service eliminates the stress and expense of travel to a traditional veterinary facility.
The Barkwood Inn offers medication administration to all of our Pet Guests at a rate of $4 per day.
Fleas & Ticks
All Guests must be free of parasites, including fleas and ticks. If it is determined that a Guest has fleas or ticks at the time of check in, they will be treated in our grooming salon (at an additional fee) before entering the Resort.
Exit Bath(Mandatory for Canine Guests staying 3 nights or more)
Having fun usually includes getting down and dirty, which is why we require all canine guests staying 3 nights or more to receive an exit bath in our grooming salon before check out. All exit baths include bath, blow dry, nail trim, ear cleaning and brush out. Offered as a "Salon Bath" to outside Guests, the exit bath is significantly discounted (up to 50% off) for Overnight Guests. Exit baths start at just $12 (price will vary depending on breed, size, coat type and condition).
Although we provide all of our Pet Guests with comfortable bedding and toys, personal belongings from home are welcome. Please do not bring valuable or cherished items, as it is possible for such items to be soiled, lost or damaged. In the event that personal items are soiled, the items will be removed from your Pet's suite and laundered. Every attempt will be made to complete the laundering process prior to check out. We cannot guarantee the condition of such items upon check-out.
