Quimby’s Is Pet-Friendly

Quimby Country is pet-friendly, especially for dogs. We provide dog bowls, as well as bags you can use to pick up after your pets. And we put a lidded pail on your porch for pet refuse. We even provide towels you can use to wipe muddy paws and blankets you can put on upholstered furniture so your dogs can get comfortable without endangering later guests who might have allergies.

We realize each dog has its own unique personality. If your dog needs to be on a leash (especially around small children), please do so.  And please consider the comfort of other guests who might have allergies or be uncomfortable around dogs.

Do you have weight requirements?
Unlike some places that define “dog-friendly” as “fits in your purse,” Quimby Country doesn’t put weight limitations on its overnight canine guests.

Where are your dog-friendly rooms located?
All of our cottages are dog-friendly. We don’t isolate pet guests in remote locations.

Is there a place to walk?
Quimby Country sits on over 1,000 acres of forest crisscrossed with trails.

Do you have beds/crates available?
We recommend bringing your own, but if you can’t we can provide comfortable bedding.

Do you know of area dog walkers, pet sitters or vets?
Some of our staff are willing to walk your dog when they aren’t on duty. We’ll be happy to put you in touch with them so you can make arrangements.

The Colebrook Veterinary Clinic is just 45 minutes away and is open from 8 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday. A veterinary clinic in Coaticook is a little closer and open from 7:30 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday and on Saturday, from 8 am to 4 pm, but you’ll need your passport and a valid rabies vaccination certificate, which is issued by a licensed veterinarian and clearly identifies your dog and shows that it is currently vaccinated against rabies.

Is there an additional fee?
There is no additional charge for pets at Quimby Country. But guests are responsible for damage incurred by their pets. And we ask that you clean up after them, using the bags provided.

Is there a security deposit?

Are there restricted areas?
The only areas where dogs are not allowed are the clay tennis court and the dining room.

How many dog-friendly rooms do you have and where are they located?
All our cottages are dog-friendly.

How many dogs are allowed?

We allow a reasonable number, which is dependent on the dogs’ sizes more than anything. If in doubt, please ask.

Do you exclude any breeds?
All breeds are welcome, though we ask dog owners to remember not all people are comfortable around all dogs. Dog owners are expected to respect other guests who might have allergies or be uncomfortable around dogs.
