Do you feel guilty leaving your dog at home during your getaway? Do you worry that your dog will not be well cared for at a kennel while the rest of the family is having a great time on their vacation? Sometimes, people cannot concentrate or even decide against leaving on holiday, because they are not able to find a pet-care facility they know is trustworthy. As such, more people search for accommodations that allow pets.
About 60% of Australians live with pets. Many of them consider their pets as part of the family who deserve to travel and enjoy a getaway as much as their human family members. As such, there is increasing pressure on accommodation providers to allow pets on their properties. However, if you have ever tried to book a room with a pet, you will have noticed how few of the lodgings actually do accept pets.
If you are visiting Daylesford, Victoria, there is one accommodation that is pet friendly at the outskirts. Willowbrook Cottages accepts pets at no extra charge. The property offers a tennis court, swimming pool, farm pets, bush walking, and a games room to keep the dogs and children happy. You can take a stroll through the nearby native forest or throw a ball down by the fish-stocked dam. There is a BBQ area outside for a relaxed dinner if you do not want to sit in a restaurant.
The cottages have two bedrooms, full kitchen facilities, TV, VCR and CD player, a wood fire for the cooler months, and a verandah to enjoy warm summer evenings. For pets, there is a dog run attached to each cottage.
