Pet Policy
Pets are part of the family and we enjoy your pets as much as you do. Please read our pet policy and guidelines before deciding on bringing your pet(s) to Backwater Suites.  We do have a $20 per night per pet fee.  We do not allow more than 2 pets in any of our units.  Extra Cleaning Service Fees may accrue if our Pet Policy guidelines are not followed.

Pet Guidelines:

  • Please keep pets off of the furniture; this includes beds, couches and chairs.  If your pet is accustomed to being on furniture at home, we ask that you please bring a sheet or blanket to place over the furniture. If you are not able to or forget one, please contact the renting agent via phone or email and request one.
  • Please respect other guests and pick up immediately after your dog while on the Suite grounds.
  • Pets must be leashed while on the Suites grounds for the safety and the comfort of your pet, other guests and their pets.
  • Pets should not be left unattended unless they are kenneled. (Housekeepers cannot enter a unit that has an un-kenneled or barking dog).
  • Guests will be required to leave a cell phone number for contact while away. In the event the pet causes disturbances to other guests or needs your attention, we will contact the owner(s).
