Donnie’s Rules

We do have a few rules for our four-legged friends:

  • Dogs to be kept on a leash in all public areas.
  • Dogs are allowed in outdoor parks, dog-friendly condo areas, and outside dining at VA BBQ & Pizza Co, Base Camp, and Campfire Grill.
  • Dogs are not allowed inside of public resort buildings including the Indoor/Outdoor WaterPark, recreation centers, inside dining locations, The Spa at Massanutten, Massanutten Conference Center, ski lodge, and ski/bike rental shop.
  • Dogs are not allowed on the golf courses, chairlift rides, and indoor/outdoor pools & public buildings.
  • Dogs are not allowed at resort sponsored activities/events.
  • The guest (dog owner) is responsible for cleaning up after your dog while on the property.
  • If you are leaving your dog alone in the room, please place the door hanger on the door that say your dog is in there unattended. No attempt will be made by resort staff to enter your room if a dog is present in the room unattended. The guest (dog owner) must be in the room when it is being serviced.
  • Please be mindful that we have a “no barking” policy. Barking must be curtailed to ensure fellow guests are not inconvenienced, both in your guest room and in the public areas. Extra fees, up to but not limited to, full room rate compensation may be assessed to your account if the dog causes disturbances leading to compensation for other guests.
  • You (dog owner) is responsible for any property damage or personal injury caused by your dog.

Woof! That’s all for now. Can't wait to meet another four-legged friend!  - D the Tea Chi
