Some anonymous someone once said, “A house is not a home without a pet.” Seriously: it’s a famous quote attributed to “Anonymous.” But how many of us have said it and attributed it to our own hearts?
Like many homes, bed and breakfast inns are often cohabited by pets — sometimes tucked into the innkeepers’ private quarters and rarely seen or heard, if ever. Sometimes, they are part of the daily comings and goings and help create the character of the lodging. Regardless, animal mascots are the heart and soul of many a B&B.
If you have allergies or an aversion to certain types of animals, be sure to check the websites of the inns you are interested in visiting. Members of the Michigan Lake to Lake B&B Association are required to disclose the presence of pets in the lodging — particularly if those pets are allowed in common areas. No B&B innkeeper allows their pets into the guestrooms.
