Pets: Dogs 15lbs or less will be considered. Please contact us. Freshwater Vacation Rentals currently charges $50/per pet for your entire stay.

Just let us know which bed you will be using with them, and we'll make sure it is ready for your sheets when you arrive. Plus, if the pet hair starts to build, we do ask that you please run the vacuum. Generally, dogs love the water and places to explore. Pet food does tend to attract mice, so vigilance is needed.
