Nice clean and eclectic place to stay. Very comfortable with kitchen and full size refrigerator. No pool, but then it is not a concern to us. Within walking distance of shops and restaurants and beach. Welcome pets.

Enjoyed our recent stay at ALHL. We've always opted for the high-end facilities in Port A, so who knew. No frills necessary -- all the amenities you need -- clean, convenient and a short walk to the beach, shopping, or food. Friendly and accommodating staff. Will visit again!

Just a short walk to the beach and you can't beat the prices! The Ranch was more than adequate for the 8 adults we had in our group. It is close to shopping and activities. I will recommend it to my friends and family.

We can't begin to tell you how super fabulous this little place is. Everyone including the dog enjoyed all the amenities. The staff was so friendly despite the 100 degree weather and patrons trying to check in early and check out late. We truly recommend this shabby chic little place for your stay in Port A. It'll keep you wanting... More

This is the 2nd year we stay at Laughing Horse and we're happy. It's walking distance from the beach. We can bring our own food to cook. The small room we get is suitable for brief stays and we can bring our pooch. Good water pressure in the shower, clean sheets, no bugs ... So yeah, we'll stay there again!

I've been bringing my dogs on vacation here for years. They love the island life...and we do too. The place is fun, with easy access to the beach. The accommodations for pups including a Laughing Horse tag are fantastic, and the comfort of having coffee on the porch in Adirondack chairs is lovely. We'll be back for sure. It's not... More

We wanted to take our new well behaved puppy to the ocean but couldn't find anything near the beach that would accept pets. Last minute we found Laughing Horse Lodge, which we had passed many times, but did not realize they allowed pets. Because of that and the location we reserved a cottage. It was very nice. Separate little vintage... More
