At Rustic Mountain, we believe that nobody should be left behind. We will allow you to bring your well behaved four-legged family member with you for a one time nonrefundable pet fee. Isn't it wonderful that for once you won't have to wonder how your best friend is doing in the kennel 'back home?' The yard is fenced in for your pet's safety and peace of mind. IF you do bring your pet, you are responsible for cleaning up after them. Doggie bags may be available at the cabin but if there isn't any, you are still responsible for picking up after your pet.
There is a 2 night minimum for off peak seasons and a 3-4 night minimum for holidays and the entire month of October.
No smoking is allowed inside of our cabin!
