Our Pet Policy

Four-Legged Friends Welcome

It’s not a true family vacation unless everyone in the family can come along – even the furry ones. That’s why at TradeWinds Resort, we accept dogs and cater to them! Just be sure to check the pet policy details below, before your arrival. Please note on the reservation that you are bringing a pet. There is a $75 pet fee per night.

If you have any questions about bringing your dog, please call 888.794.0070 and a vacation advisor will be happy to help.
