Pet Policy

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.  To sit with a dog on a mountaintop on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring – it was peace.” – Milan Kundera

Under certain circumstances well groomed and well behaved dogs are allowed in Cabins only.

Approval must be obtained prior to your arrival and your pet must be confirmed by name in your reservation confirmation letter to indicate approval.

Dogs only are allowed, one dog only, weight limit of 80 pounds, over one year in age, and house trained.

There is a $25 per day pet charge which is reduced for a stay of five nights or longer by 10%.

There is a $150 pet security deposit, which is taken at check-in by credit card "off-line approval" or cash. Your pet security deposit is completely refundable if there is no pet damage.  At check-in you are requested to acknowledge our Pet Security Deposit Policy, Guide & Information which explains why we take a pet deposit and the different things that can cause full or partial forfeiture of your deposit.   Guidelines are also given so that you are aware of the things that need to happen to make sure that your pet does not cause any problems for you, the property or other guests.

The Galax, Cullasaja and Hemlock Cabins have pet proof decks that open directly to your Cabin by sliding doors so that your pet may come inside and go outside while your are enjoying your Cabin and you will not have to worry about the pet getting loose.  The Chickadee Cabin is an excellent choice because its private covered terrace opens directly out to a very private five acre open pasture banked by woods.  The Chickadee Cabin is our most private Cabin since no pathways or roads cross your open pasture land that you view from your Cabin.  Blue Moss and Red Cedar Cabins both have large porches that open directly to a park like setting with long range views.

We very much desire that your faithful companion have a nice and warm welcome at Fire Mountain. Personalized in accommodation amenities are awaiting your pet at arrival to make their "new place" feel more like home since traveling and a new environment can be stressful at times for some pets.

Certain breeds are not accepted and we ask that barkers and unruly pets be boarded.  Further it is understood that if a pet becomes a problem for other guests or the property or the staff that the dog will have to be removed from the property, at any time, if requested by management.  Further it is a requirement that maid service be provided on a daily basis in your Cabin with the pet not present.

We are extremely proud that we are pet friendly and that Fire Mountain is a most spectacular environment for pets and their owners.  We have over 50 acres of open pasture and meadows for you to play in with your pet in addition to our hiking trails on our hundreds of acres, all located on top of Fire Mountain at an elevation of over 4,000 feet.   Make sure to bring a camera to record this unique experience with your pet.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.” - Anonymous
