Dog Days of Summer Promotion
Exclusively in August 2013, we will waive the pet fee when reserving a stay at our special "Dog Days of Summer” rate. Instead, the resort will donate the value of this fee ($75) to PAWS Atlanta, a non-profit organization committed to enhancing the welfare of homeless cats and dogs. Guests can escape with the furry member of their family for the late summer season while also supporting a wonderful cause. This offer is valid August 1-31, 2013. Please mention Dog Days of Summer at the time of booking.
