Pet Policy

Sweetwater is happy to accommodate your furry members of the family! Our pet policy and fees are below, please review them and be prepared to sign a form acknowledging your consent at check in.

We have 3 pet friendly cottages for your enjoyment during your stay in Gainesville. The pet friendly cottages are Victoria’s, Mae’s, and Sarah’s cottages. There is a maximum of 1 pet per room, unless authorized by a manager. We’ll be sure to have a little special something in your cottage ready for your pet’s arrival – just let us know whether you have a dog or cat! :)  Please note that pets are not allowed on furniture or in jacuzzis.

There is a $100 deposit due at check-in. This fee is valid for a 1 week time period, after which an additional $50 per week will be assessed.  $50 of the initial fee will be refunded back to you within 72 hours after check out, if no damage has been done to the room and if there is no evidence of fleas or hair left behind.

If displaying displeasing behavior, we reserve the right to require immediate removal of the pet from the property. Examples of this include but are not limited to: excessive barking, biting, evidence of disease, etc.

If there is any damage caused by your pet, you are responsible for the repair or replacement cost of the item(s). Please let us know as soon as possible if any accidents occur so that we may prevent permanent damage. If there is prior damage to your room, please notify the front desk immediately so that it can be fixed/we can upgrade you at no cost. A manager will make note that you are not liable.

We do ask that when you leave your pet in the cottage that they be crated or caged – our housekeepers are not allowed to freshen your rooms or replace soiled towels, etc. if your pet is unrestrained. Also, in keeping with Gainesville city ordinance, pets are required to be kept on a leash at all times when away from your room. No pets are to be left alone outside or tied to any part of the buildings/grounds. When walking your pet, please dispose of waste properly (bags will be provided – failure to comply will result in a $25 fee).

Our focus is for you and your pet to be comfortable. We hope that your stay here is pleasant and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.
