Sorry no pets allowed. Our site does provide information about nearby kennels.

If you don’t want to leave your dog or cat at home, you can board it at the Four Paws Inn only 15 minutes drive from the resort. Although we have pets of our own and love them, most guests prefer that we maintain this policy.

Four Paws Inn is only a 15 minute drive from Blue Water Acres and is a wonderful boarding alternative to boarding your pet in the city. Here they can lap up the fresh air and beauty of their own fun-filled pet-style Muskoka vacation. Four Paws Inn was designed with features in mind to ensure a safe clean environment for your pets while they are away from home. Dogs are individually exercised four times a day on trails and large fenced outdoor yards. You can also take your pet with you on your daily excursions away from the resort. Your dog will love a trip to Algonquin Park. Remember however, that you may not bring your pet back to Blue Water Acres, no matter how well behaved or trained it is.
