In line with its relaxed, country feel, Barnsley Resort welcomes pets into a majority of its rooms and public spaces. You may book the pet-friendly Arbor cottages and 32 of the 36 Garden and Meadow suites with an additional $75 deep-cleaning fee, or the two-bedroom Wheaton cottage with a $150 cleaning fee. There is no weight requirement or need to crate your animal, though you will have to keep them on a leash while in the village. Resort lakes and 12 miles of hiking trails are open for pet exploration, and the outdoor lounging areas are great places to enjoy Barnsley with a furry friend: Pets are welcome at the fire pits and lawn games as well as outdoor dining venues such as the Beer Garden (where occasional “Yappy Hours” let owners pluck treats from a small tree for their pups to enjoy) and the Rice House herb garden. The Forbes Travel Guide recommended hotel has also partnered with no-kill animal shelter PAWS Atlanta to offer seasonal specials on pet-friendly rooms, waiving the pet-cleaning fee and donating $75 to PAWS for every night reserved.
Yes, Barnsley Resort is very pet friendly: Not only do we allow pets at our resort, we welcome them. More than half of our accommodations are pet friendly, and we have no size or weight restrictions on any number of pets our guests might choose to accompany them. We have 12 miles of hiking trails, beautiful gardens to explore, outdoor sitting areas with fire pits and lawn games, and outdoor dining venues like our Beer Garden and Rice House herb garden that welcome pets, so they won’t be left out of the fun. The entire resort is open to pets with the exception of indoor dining areas, the spa and the pool deck (and only because the health inspector tells us so). So don’t leave your furry friend at home. There is a $75-per-stay fee for deep cleaning, but for guests who reserve a two-night stay package in our pet-friendly rooms, we waive the fee and give $75 to PAWS Atlanta, a non-profit, no-kill shelter.
