Are you pet friendly
Yes for an additional $20/night. We allow friendly dogs that do not bark when left alone and that are fully potty-trained. Dogs must also stay in their room while the owner is on the Sanctuary grounds. Thank you!

"All the rooms are bright and pretty, the Suite is spacious and welcoming and the king sized bed in the Samson Room is perfect!"
"The Samson suit is beautifully decorated, has a full kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom with direct access staircase to the kitchen."
"Dino room perfect size for 2. "
"Dino room- so cosy so comfortable and overlooking the road which leads to the valley of tranquillity and peace."
"I thought sharing a bathroom with 3 other rooms would be challenging but never ran in to anyone when I would go to shower etc."
$114 - $247 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
