  1. Pet policy is limited to canines. All other pets staying at Hiawatha must be pre-approved.
  2. Pets must be controlled at all times in the public areas. They must be leashed or held by individual responsible for the animal. There are guests that are allergic or scared of even the nicest dogs. We have a responsibility to make this a wonderful environment for everyone. Please assist us in our efforts.
  • The preferred location for doggie doo is on the front lawn, to the left of the playground in the tall grassy area. Please be sure to clean up after your dog.
  1. Pets are not allowed to roam free on the outside of the property. See #2.
  2. Do not leave pets unattended in your rooms. Pets left in room unattended are in violation of our pet policy. Guests will receive one courtesy call and if situation is not remedied in a timely manner guests will be required to leave the property with no refund. In the event you cannot take your pet with you please contact front desk. There are several ways we may assist you.
