"Set in a quiet, rustic area the lodge is within hiking distance......................................And continental breakfast is served with dog treats, natch."
The Washington Post-The Source-PetSet-June 8, 2003

Most pets welcome at Sky Chalet Mountain Lodge;
pets not accepted at the House Over the Pond.

At Sky Chalet Mountain Top Lodge, many of our guests bring their pet to enjoy a getaway also. One guests even told us that they came to stay for a few days, "because their dog asked to go on vacation." And its no wonder, as the pets seem to enjoy the Sky Chalet Mountain Top Lodge and the surrounding areas. Below are listed the top ten amenities pets enjoy:

Pet Amenities

Pets receive a delivered treat each morning included in the delivered continental breakfast basket.
The area around the lodge is secluded with woods and open spaces for running, playing, and chasing rabbits. There is as "ski" trail from the Sky Chalet Mountain Top Lodge to the top of the ski lift at Bryce Resort.

There are nearby hiking trails such as the George Washington Nation Forest and Shenandaoh National Park.

There is nearby swimming such as Lake Laura and the Shenandoah River.

Pets can relax knowing that the innkeepers welcome pets as they themselves have a cat, R.J., and in the past, owned many other cats; some that they fondly remember are Scrapper,a fiesty stray that was a Hemingway cat, and Shadow, a drop off cat that adored all people,and they in turn, adored her. R.J.,from one of Scrapper's litters, is a 20 years old cat, has some delcining health, but sometimes still acts likes she is still in her youth.
Also, they owned three golden retrievers in the past; Whiskey, Brandy, and Thunder,, all with their own unique personalities. They have adopted a "pound" puppy, Ginger. Ginger is 2-3 years old, and is a golden lab mix. She is #1 as playing ball, and is quite possibly the sweetest dog in the world!
