DOG FRIENDLY, DOGS WELCOME
Greetings dogs! We welcome you and your humans to Birches Cottage. While you are visiting we ask that you follow our guidelines:
Maximum of one dog (90 lb. max.) with your humans in Birches Cottage. Are you at least a year old? You must be reliably “cottage broken.”
You will be charged a non-refundable $10/day for each day of your stay in Birches Cottage. Your human’s deposit will be retained
if you forget and chew something or otherwise damage the cottage and also if your human forgets to sooth you in a moment of excitement and you bite another guest or a staff member. Remember, do NOT bite.
In consideration of our other guests and their possible allergies, we cannot allow you in other cottages or buildings on site.
You will receive FREE doggy biscuits upon your arrival.
When outside, we expect your humans to keep on your leash at all times. There are enticing distractions in the form of skunks,
porcupines, and bunnies that could otherwise lead you into trouble.
You are not to be left alone in your cottage at any time. We know there will be unfamiliar sights, noises
and smells which could make you want to bark. Your humans will know just how to comfort you so you do not disturb other guests.
Our housekeepers will service your cottage only when you are on your best behavior.
Our onsite beaches are for humans only. You may play (on leash) in the cathedral field and hike with them on the roads and trails
(0n leash). Please check restrictions at public beaches.
When you go for a “powder room” break you MUST refrain from “marking” the well head area and any buildings, construction materials, gardens and
other objects that humans might use or need to keep clean for sanitary reasons. Biodegradable doggie pic-up bags are for your humans to use to remove
any remains that you might leave behind. Waste is to be double bagged and disposed of in the Oakland House dumpster.
When you check in you will be asked for your license number, your record of rabies shots and regular heartworm, flea and tick protection
calendar as prescribed by your veterinarian for this area of the coast of Maine.
Your cottage will have “throw” coverings for the upholstered furniture so you can be comfortable sitting next to your humans. You will be provided
with special towels for your humans to use in your care.
Your water and food dishes are to be placed on the rubber matt provided for this purpose.
Don’t worry, I’m allergic to cats, so they are not allowed.
We can't wait to meet you.
