Many families are choosing to take their pets along when they travel. There are many reasons for this. First of all, pets can become an integral part of a family, and leaving family members behind may not be acceptable. Second, if the vacation is going to last for a week or more, the cost of boarding a pet can become a major expense. Pet sitters may be more convenient for the family, but handing over keys to the house can be very stressful.

There'll Be No Missing Fido with Pet-Friendly Hotels

Almost everywhere families can travel in the United States, they will find hotels, bed and breakfasts, condos, and even private rental cabins or houses that are pet-friendly. In the Lake Tahoe area, there are several hotels, lodges, and cabins that welcome pets. There is usually an additional fee per pet per night, but the fees are not excessive.

Visitors should bring along their own pet bedding. Some hotels provide old sheets to put over hotel bed covers. Old hotel towels may be used to keep paws clean and carpets fresh. At some hotels, pet sitters are available (as are kennels and runs). Most pet-friendly hotels in Lake Tahoe require that pets be contained in a kennel if the family goes out and that barking be controlled at all times. One hotel that I found indicated that, if pets had accidents or damaged anything in the room, they would like to know so they can correct the problem before the next family moves in.

Depending on the type of lodgings visitors prefer, finding the right location is a must. For example, there are probably more pet-friendly hotels than there are privately-owned rental cabins that will accept pets. On the other hand, finding the right house or cabin can mean a yard for the pet as well as a more relaxed setting for the family. Most of the lodgings online indicate available amenities, and that includes restrictions or whether pets are welcome.
