Our guests enjoy private and comfortable lodging in our state-of-the-art facility. Located on 37 rolling acres, our spacious accommodations include ample outdoor space for playtimes, hikes, and more.

Cat Boarding

The Cattail Lodge is a beautiful, comfortable, and safe place for our feline guests to relax and enjoy their own quiet quarters. With floor to ceiling suites, your cat can enjoy views of our lobby or nature area from the comfort of their soft bed.

Dog Daycare

If you worry about your dog while you’re away for the day, or you just want your dog to have a place to play, exercise, and make new friends, then Dog Daycare at Rivermist Pet Lodge is for you! With enriching play sessions and even festive doggie parties, your pup will come home tired and happy!

Dog Training

Dog training is essential to strengthen and enhance the relationship between pet parents and their furry family member. Let us teach those important skills that make life with a dog even better!

Salon & Spa

There’s nothing as sweet as cuddling with a clean dog! Let us help your dog look their very best while taking special care to put them at ease during our professional spa services.

With many changes in our lives due to the Coronavirus (COVID -19), our pets can be such a comfort to us as we learn to enjoy and endure the circumstances of staying at home and practicing social distancing.

We want you to know that Rivermist Pet Lodge is committed to being here for you during this time. We are ready to pamper your four-legged family members in whatever ways will help make this a safe and comfortable time for you and your pet. 

At Rivermist, the health and well-being of your pet and family are our top priority. We have taken every possible measure to keep our facilities operating in a safe manner and have continually evolved our procedures based on current circumstances. Pet care staff will be here to care for your pets and are eager to accommodate you, our client, as much as we can. 

Rivermist Pet Lodge will continue to actively monitor the news and guidance from various public agencies about the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and will abide by the recommendations put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. State Department, and city and county officials. Again, our goal is to remain open while continuing to provide a safe environment for our staff, clients, and guests.
