We have stayed at "Augustus Bove House" in years past and have found our hosts to be wonderful, gracious and friendly. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the cabins were outstanding. This was our usual choice, as this provided not only comfortable accommodations for us, but also for our two dogs, Marley and Sophie, who always travel with us. We always have our dogs bathed and groomed, prior to traveling when on vacation.
Today, I called to make reservations to stay and when the owner answered I asked if one of the cabins was available and was told that it was, but, when I mentioned that our dogs would be staying with us, the cabin suddenly became unavailable. He said that "Augustus Bove House" is NO LONGER PET FRIENDLY!!! He said that he had good reasons for having made that decision. When I asked him what his reasons were, all he could come up with was, "Some people have allergies." I wonder about the years of accommodating guests with pets. Does he think that changing policy will somehow erase all signs of pets having stayed there? Many people have stayed there, because of the pet friendly status.
Don't get me wrong, the owner was polite but firm. It's his place and he can run his B&B any way he chooses. I just don't see how turning away business is good for the bottom lineMore
