Boarding and Lodging
Lodging at Rocky Gorge Resort & Spa
From the moment you enter Rocky Gorge Resort and Spa, you will realize that you're not in an ordinary boarding kennel. The reception area and boutique are appointed with comfortable leather armchairs and luxury finishes. Our friendly staff will check you in and get your pet settled into his or her room quickly and efficiently. Special requests are never a problem when it comes to the care of our guests. We are more than happy to brush your pet daily, give treats, or bundle him up before going outside. Our daily rates are all-inclusive, with the exception of some medical services, so we will never charge extra for those little things that make our guests feel more comfortable and more at home.
Our guests stay in clean, comfortable rooms, not cages. We provide your choice of bedding, which is laundered daily. There are three types of canine rooms from which you may choose. Most of the rooms have a web cam so you can check in on your pet while you're away. Web cam viewing is available 9 am to 9 pm. Dog room sizes are approximately 4 x 4 feet, 5 x 6 feet and 6 x 6 feet. The rooms in the Hillside suite are designed for small to medium sized dogs. Creek side rooms are designed for larger canines. Guests from the same household can room together if you prefer Woodlands rooms have exterior windows and web cams. Cottages also have web cams. The Club House rooms are the largest rooms.
Cats stay in a separate suite, The Cats' Meow, and have Kitty Condos and two types of rooms from which you may choose. The condos are approximately 11/2 x 2 x 3 feet and adjacent condos can be shared. Tree Top Suites are 3 x 4 feet, have DVD screens for your cat's entertainment and web cams. The Penthouse is 6 x 9 1/2 feet and also has DVD and web cam. The Penthouse is ideal for households that have four or more cats.
We walk our canine guests at least three times a day. Additional walks and playtimes may be given if time permits, but because exercise is essential to your dog's well-being, we never charge for walks or trips to the dog park.
Our guests' meals are prepared in the resort's fully equipped kitchen. We are happy to provide food for your pet's stay or serve any food you provide. We serve Purina veterinary grade diets for dogs and cats. If you prefer to bring food from home your pet's food will be labeled with your pet's name and feeding instructions and stored separately. Our kitchen is equipped with a refrigerator and microwave, so special preparations are not a problem. We can even warm the guests' canned food if they prefer. We customize feeding times and will feed on the schedule you request.
We have medical staff available for consultation and treatment should any medical problems arise during your pet's stay. This is especially beneficial for geriatric, diabetic and chronically ill guests. Prescribed insulin injections and fluids will be administered for an additional fee during your pet's stay. Pre- and post-surgical care is available if your pet is scheduled to have a procedure while staying with us. Unexpected health issues will be addressed by one of our veterinarians and prescriptions will be filled from our pharmacy. There will be additional charges for office visits, treatments or medications provided. Because you need to be present during your pet's regular exams, please schedule appointments for annual vaccines prior to your pet's stay if they will be required. We are happy to schedule the office visit when you call to make your reservation.
We recommend booking reservations as early as possible. Holidays, weekends and summer months are particularly busy and we may be fully booked two months in advance. A two-day deposit will be taken at the time you make your reservation. This deposit is only refundable if you cancel your reservation with at least five days of notice. If you are not a current client of Rocky Gorge Animal Hospital, Resort & Spa, please be prepared to provide proof of current vaccines and a negative fecal exam within the past 12 months. For everyone's protection, we require proof of up-to-date rabies, distemper/parvo, and bordetella vaccinations before a reservation can be made. If you have your veterinarian's telephone number, we will be glad to call their office and have them fax the records or you can fax them to the resort at 301-575-5705. Please call us at 301-575-5700 to make a reservation. We are available to make reservations, check in or check out your pet Monday through Friday 7a.m.–8p.m., Saturday 7a.m.–4p.m. and Sunday 7a.m.–Noon. The resort office is closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, Memorial Day and July 4th.
We love to give tours and you are welcome to stop by for a visit anytime we're open. While you're here, check out the boutique, where you can purchase Purina Pro Plan foods, treats, toys, clothes, and accessories.
