We’re sorry we cannot accommodate your pet. Boarding may be available in the area – please call us for details.

Please let the innkeeper know when booking your reservation if a service dog will be accompanying you.  Service animals are permitted in all areas where guests are allowed. Service animals are animals that are trained to perform a specific task for the benefit of a person with a disability. The Grey Swan Inn innkeepers may ask what task(s) the service animal performs. The following types of animals are not permitted:

  • Comfort Animals: Animals not trained to perform a specific task, but which are said to provide emotional support or to relieve anxiety simply by their presence.
  • Pets: Animals for which no claim of any service is made.

You must keep your service animal under control at all times. The animal should always be on a leash, harness or other tether, unless either the handler is unable because of his/her disability to use a harness, leash or other tether, or the use of a harness, leash or other tether would interfere with the service animal’s safe, effective performance of work or tasks, in which case the service animal must be otherwise under the handler’s control.
