Pet Friendly Hotels & Resorts

Pet-Friendly Vacations across the U.S.!

Looking for a vacation that your whole family, and yes that includes a travel destination your pet, will enjoy? Then look no further than Westgate Resorts. With exquisite properties all across the United States, we offer your family and furry ones everything from an adventure way up in the mountains to a relaxing stay near the beach. To top it all off, the list of on-property activities and things to do near the resorts are endless and include things like parks and in some instances, dog-friendly restaurants.

Traveling with dog or cat doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful! With our spacious villas offer accommodations and lodging that come fully equipped with a kitchen and separate areas for living, dining or sleeping. You and your animals will enjoy a friendly, relaxing stay in your home away from home.

When reserving your villa or vacation rentals, we do recommend calling ahead of time to verify the details such as your dog's weight. You may encounter a limit to the number of pets allowed and some locations include breed limits. In many cases, the hotels you visit will also require your pet to be fully vaccinated for rabies, bordetella, etc. You may also want to contact us in advance to verify any pet fees or guest room cleaning fees.

Travelling essentials

Gather any medicines and proof of vaccinations

Don't forget food, water, and feeding bowls

Be sure to bring your pets bed and favorite toys

Traveling with a dog or cat can be a treat for all. Family members, especially the kids, will love having your four-legged friends around to share happy memories during your getaways. And Fido will be thrilled to tag along rather than be left behind at home. When traveling with animals, you'll also want to be sure to pack your pet's favorite food and toys, as well as any medicines or favorite items that may offer additional comfort.

Westgate Resorts offers a variety of options for those with four-legged family members! So if traveling with paws is on your bucket list, check our pet welcoming resorts and learn why we are pet lovers!
