Pet Friendly Timeshare List!

---------------------------

There was a thread on Tug today about Pet Friendly Timeshares, unfortunately I don't remember which forum it was posted in. At any rate, I posted a reply, shortly later edited by me because the hyperlink I posted didn't work.

I logged out and now when I logged back into Tug I can't find the thread anywhere on Tug. When I did a search of my posts, it wasn't listed either.

Was the thread removed from Tug for some reason? I'm puzzled.

Thanks

Richard

Hi Richard - It was a boo boo on my part. There were actually two identical questions posted, and when I tried to merge them into one thread, I bungled the job! :eek: Another Moderator tried to help me, but it was accidentally deleted instead. We are trying to recover them now.

Hi Denise,

and thanks to all the Tug Moderators for all your great work.

Best Wishes for the New Year to the Tug Family.

Mea Culpa

Apparently the cyberspace gremlims ate it!

If any of you fine Tuggers would care to repost here and get me out of hot water, that would be just lovely!

Duh-nise :eek: :eek: :eek:

It seems they are few and far between. I've asked this before and the ones I remember are the Silverleaf resorts. Since we're II members, those aren't even options for us.

This summer we're going to Hilton Head but renting a house instead of staying in our timeshare so that we can take our dog. It remains to be seen how well he'll travel that far.

Yes, the deletion was a mistake...and I take responsibility for it. I was trying to help Denise...and I accidently deleted it permanently. It can't be recovered. Sorry about that!

The original poster in that thread had stated that she owned a Marriott, liked deluxe resorts, and was most interested in traveling to California, Arizona, and Florida with her Yorkie.

To summarize my post in that thread:

There are a few pet friendly resorts in those three states that I am aware of:

Arizona

Four Seasons Scottsdale at Troon North

Rancho Manana in Cave Creek

Sedona Pines (not deluxe)


California

Four Seasons Aviara -- only owners are allowed to bring pets / not exchangers


Florida

Celebration World Resort (not overly deluxe)

Caribe Beach Resort (definitely not deluxe, but it is on Sanibel Island)


I wish that Marriott would allow pets...or at least have a pet friendly building or floor...at their resorts. Unfortunately, I don't think this is likely any time soon as many people seem to be strongly opposed to the idea.

How 'bout large pets?

Anyone know if there'd be any large-pet-friendly TS resorts in the US, especially east coast? Many restrict pets to under 25# or something. We might like to try out a vacation with our (very quiet) 50# girl sometime, and I don't see specifics on RCI's site. Unfortunately the only ones I know about are overseas.

OK, I called Lucayan and there is no weight limit there ... just a fee per unit, not per pet ... yay, on my list! Deb, if your dog does well, maybe you want to add this to your list too.

I also have a call into Atlantic Resorts and will report back when I know.

make this a 'sticky' posting ?

Hello

Is there a way we can make this a sticky posting?

Here is a link that also lists pet friendly accommodations

[The Timeshare Beat no longer has a website - DeniseM]

Any change of limited the posting here to people who like to travel with their pets ( so pet haters can make their own thread, please ?)

Regards

Greg H

Following up on my post above: Atlantic Resorts in MD: no weight limit for pets, $100 fee. TUG review is poor though.

And apparently dogs, including on-leash dogs, are only allowed on the OC beach and boardwalk Oct 1 - April 30.

Here is one in the berkshires

Vacation Village in the Berkshires has a pet friendly building. Request pet friendly unit when you get your exchange or make a reservation. They go fast.Something like a $60 cleaning charge per unit. Nice resort.

There is a list of pet friendly resorts on the RCI site, main page under the answer place. I did not check for overlap with all the posted listings. II folks could access as this is before log in.

Pet Friendly Timeshares.

We are going to Westgate TownCenter in FL. They take pets up to 60 pounds and WEstgate Smoky Mountains in TN takes small pets up to 30 pounds, but I beleive on both of them, you have to pay a small fee. Also, it isn't listed on their websites or II that they take pets. You have to ask aout that. Those are the 2 that I know for sure.

Just spoke with Westgate Smoky Mountain resort. You can have 2 pets up to 60# each. There is a fee. There is also a fenced dog run on the property.

Silverleaf NO LONGER PET FRIENDLY

All of the SILVERLEAF resorts are no longer pet friendly effective as of 08/31/09.
All RCI members with pending reservations at Silverleaf properties have been notified. Silverleaf is remodeling a lot of their units and want them to be NON pet friendly going forward.

Also the houseboat resorts in Deland, FL and Oklahoma are pet friendly. The specific names of the resorts escape me at the moment.

What difference does a dog's size make to the situation? I don't know how much the size thing is enforced anyways, but large or small most dogs lose hair. At least the larger ones don't make deposits behind furniture like the little ones. Here's my pooch at Wentworth by the Sea last week. www.wentworth.com It's a full service hotel with a $30 per 'stay' pet fee.

Added: I searched the Marriott site for pet-friendly Marriotts, JW's, and Renaissance hotels and there are now 1070 of them. This is huge change upwards from just 3 years ago. Unfortunately, none of them are Marriott timeshares.

At an update meeting recently, I asked about pets. I was told owners are still allowed to bring pets IF their contracts state PETS ALLOWED. My contract says no pets allowed, I can't. The sales rep we were talking to owns two SL weeks and his contract allows pets...and he has a dog. He said they have to honor the contract. So I thought he might know what he was talking about. No pets with exchanges tho.

I don't understand the size thing, either, because we assume that every pet owner is responsible and picking up after their own dogs. If this were not the case, then, size would matter to the ... um, Cleaner. Or the person that steps in it. Not that "a little dog poop" on the shoe is a lot better than a lot.

Used to be that there were only 2 breeds that don't shed - poodles and schnauzers.

We will miss Silverleaf and loved being able to take our dog with us. Had hoped to make it to all of their resorts. oh well.
