You said pet friendly, and the monkey is my pet! That is what the guest told us, the housekeeper went into the mountain cabin rental to clean the cabin and there was a monkey in the cabin.
The housekeeper screamed, the monkey screamed. They both ran in opposite directions, very traumatized. The guest had misunderstood their checkout time which is why we discovered the monkey.
When we said pet friendly, we meant people could bring their dogs and cats, not their monkeys, snakes, horses, falcons or other exotic creatures. I joke with people when they ask if a cabin is pet friendly, but we really would like to know what you are bringing with you.
If you are considering bringing a pet with you on vacation to Blue Ridge, please do! But do us a favor, select a pet friendly cabin for your vacation stay. We occasionally have guests with specific allergies to cats and dogs, and cannot stay in a property there there has been a recent cat or dog. If a property is not pet friendly, there may be a specific reason such as owner allergies, or they are afraid of a wet dog jumping on the furniture. Please respect the owner’s wishes regarding pets.
If you bring your pet with you:
- Please stay in a pet friendly cabin only.
- Crate your pet if you leave them unattended in the cabin. Sometimes pets freak out in strange places when left alone and can tear things up. (The monkey would probably have been okay if it was in its crate).
- Please clean up after them, inside the cabin and outside too.
- Don’t leave your pets unattended out on the porches. The wood of the cabins is a soft wood and I have seen instances where a scratching dog has ruined a door or the wood siding beside a door.
