Guests with Disabilities
Massanutten is committed to making its facilities accessible to all guests, including those with disabilities (within the limits of safety). Guests with disabilities are encouraged to notify Reservations of special needs at the time reservations are made and to contact Concierge Services in advance for assistance in planning their stay. Our team will be happy to communicate with all necessary departments to ensure that our guests' needs are met. If a guest's disability is not obvious, we may ask whether an accommodation is required because of a disability.

"Service Animals” as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are accommodated at the Resort. ADA service animals are dogs or miniature horses that are “individually trained to do work or perform a task for a person with a disability.” Service animals are working animals, not pets. “The work or task a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.” - www.ada.gov. Service animals may be identified at check-in. Questions regarding service animals, pets, and boarding options may be directed to 540.289.4908 ext. 2. If you are not sure if you have a service animal, please call this number prior to your visit.
Emotional Support Animals
Animals whose sole function is to provide emotional support or comfort do not qualify as “Service Animals” under the ADA and are not permitted (unless approved under our “Pet Policy” described in these Rules). Questions regarding service animals, pets and boarding options may be directed to 540.289.4908 ext. 2.
Under the Resort “Pet Policy”, you must obtain approval in advance to bring your dog to a designated dog-friendly condo unit. No other animals are allowed. No dog shall be allowed in lodging accommodations unless approved prior to check-in. The Pet Policy is linked here and you can request approval here. A nonrefundable charge of up to $500 per day may be assessed by the Association to clean, repair, treat (for fleas or other pests), and restore a unit and common areas if a non-approved pet is identified in any unit or in the Resort.
