In addition to being centrally located for your visit to southeast Pennsylvania, we are near lots of parks and walking trails where dogs are friendly. In fact, Hamanassett has printed a list of places where you can walk, hike, and even dine with your canine friend and we will be happy to give you a copy when you check in. Just ask us for it.
Below is just one of our dog friendly cottages. Tucked away in the woods behind the barn, it is our most private accommodation. Both cottages have two bedrooms and either 2 1/2 baths or 1 1/2 baths plus a living room, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen so we are perfect for your long term family vacation to southeast Pennsylvania. The fence wraps around the front of the Meadow Cottage so when you sit on our front porch and gaze at the horses grazing in the meadow you can have your best friend with you. Talk to us about reduced rates for stays of a week or longer.
Even the horses at Hamanassett are dog friendly. There are many pet friendly restaurants in the Brandywine Valley as well as pet friendly activities to enjoy with your dog.

Here are a few friendly tips to think of when you travel with your dog:
Be sure he has a tag.
Make sure his vaccinations are up to date.
Don’t leave your dog in the car. Even when it doesn’t feel hot to you, temperatures in cars can quickly exceed 110 degrees and lead to heat stroke. Heat stroke signs include rapid panting, weakness, vomiting, thick and sticy saliva and diarrhea. If you see any of these signs you should immediately remove him from the heat and apply ice packs or clothes dipped in cool water to his head and neck.
Always keep a bowl and fresh water nearby when out with your dog.
