I knew I had made the right choice when the receptionist described their pet policy. She said, "We ask that you not leave your dog in the room alone." I said (kiddingly), "We have a horse."
Without missing a beat, she said, "We ask that you not leave your horse in the room alone.
We travel a great deal with our dog. Fitger's treats customers with dogs the right way. They have reserved four rooms for pets. And there is no extra charge for a pet. NO EXTRA CHARGE!
And we did not see or hear another dog, or another person,, the entire day and evening.
We had Room 215, a great room (the ceilings had to be 14 feet high) with easy outside access to the parking lot and to the lake shore walkway. This could not have been better for us or for our dog.
But that's not all. Fitger's does all the little things right. No username or password or rules to read for wifi access; simply turn on your device and go. The rooms are accessed by actual keys, not those plastic credit cardy things.
And, get this. They offer a "Pillow Menu" with a description of four types you may experience.
Combined with a jaunt up to the New Scenic Cafe up the North Shore and you have the makings of an exceptionally fine overnight
