When you go on vacation, there’s no reason your pet shouldn’t either! When you bring your pets to The Hotel at Wateree, they are sure to receive the attention and love they are accustomed to receiving at home. The Hotel at Wateree offers private, climate controlled accommodations and access to the outdoors for dogs, and, for our feline guests, spacious condos with large windows for bird watching.

We offer Luxury Suites that include extra play time in the morning and afternoon! All Suites are also equipped with televisions playing their favorite animal programming!

It’s important to know that we have a full veterinary team of doctors and trained staff who monitor your pet’s feeding schedule and personality. If your pet is a little homesick or feeling under the weather, a doctor or team member will contact you, keeping you up to speed, and answer any questions you have. Whether it’s a weekend getaway or traveling the globe, The Hotel at Wateree is the place for you and your pets.

Packing for your Pet's Stay

It can be hard deciding what and what not to pack for your pet’s stay. Please refer to our packing guidelines below when packing your pet’s bags.

What to Pack

  • Food – Although we feed Hill’s Sensitive Stomach food to our guests, we recommend you bring your pet’s normal food with you. Some pets experience stomach upset with abrupt diet changes and combined with being away from home can make tummy problems worse. Some pet owners bring their pet’s food individually bagged for each meal while others bring containers of food and we do the rest.
  • Small bed or blanket – We supply bedding for all guests; however, if you decide to bring your pet’s bedding, please have it clearly marked with permanent marker and leave a detailed description of the bedding on your pet’s boarding form at check in.

What NOT to Pack

Bowls – We supply all guests with stainless steel water and food bowls.

Leash and Collar – Upon check-in, you will be given your pet’s collar and leash. During your pet’s stay, we will supply a temporary collar and use our in-house leashes. Rest assured, you are welcome to take our leash if you forget yours at pick up!

Litter box –  All feline guests are supplied with a fresh litter box and litter each day so no need to bring your own.

Toys – We have an abundance of toys for our guests! Please leave any toys at home; knickknacks can be easily misplaced during cleaning and playtime. We don’t want guests leaving without their favorite toy, so we keep our toy box stocked instead!
