Ruffing it at the Wickaninnish Inn

Why leave your pet at home when traveling to running & digging paradise? We like to think we redefine "a dog's life" here at the Wickaninnish Inn with our doggy amenities, miles of sandy beach, and surrounding old-growth forest for foraging at its best. Ask us about our designated pet-friendly rooms, available as selected Deluxe rooms, Beachcomber Suite, or a Frank Island Suite. Simply add $40 per night for your first pet, and $20 for your second pet.

Ruffing It features:

  • Pet sitting* for when your people are out exploring, don't worry, we'll make it fun! Based on availability, starting at $15.00/hour for one pet, $18.00/hour for two pets,
  • Comfy bedding and blanket, plus food & water bowls for your stay,
  • Treats (contingent on good behaviour),
  • Use of a Chuckit! ball launcher,
  • Unlimited beach time,
  • Pet shower station for those sandy paws,
  • Your own issue of modern dog magazine - we haven't forgotten about you humans!


Please note it is necessary to request for a pet-friendly room at time of reservation as these accommodations are subject to availability. Dogs must be leashed when in the lobby, on the grounds, and on all beaches in the area. If pets are left in the room for short periods, they must be kenneled and must not disturb other guests. Guests are required to sign a pet waiver/agreement, and are liable for any damages and repairs other than normal wear and tear. Any noise complaints that result in refunds to other guests will be charged to pet guests' rooms. Maximum of 2 pets per room.

*Pet sitting services are offered by Wickaninnish Inn employees on their own time and cannot be guaranteed until the day of arrival. Late pet sitting cancellations within two hours of start time will incur a two-hour pet sitting charge. Special holiday rates apply.
