Enjoy a vacation with your dog!
The Canine Country Getaway at Glen Highland Farm was created especially for people who like to vacation with their dogs. The land was once home to the Iroquois Indians who lived near the beautiful Butternut Creek, an curvy stream filled with trout, abundant wildlife, endangered butterflies and birds. The Creek winds through 175 acres of rolling meadows and winding trails and a 2-acre spring-fed pond stocked with brown and rainbow trout, all perfect surroundings for you to enjoy a great vacation at the same time your dog enjoys an outdoor adventure.
Our 2014 season runs May 23 through September 30.
GoPetFriendly.com placed us at #1 in their Top 10 list of Pet-Friendly Destinations!
FIDO Friendly, a popular dog travel and lifestyle magazine, polled their readers about favorite places to go with their dog on trips and vacations. A 2012 issue featured the Top 50 Fido-Friendly Destinations and our very own Canine Country Getaway was featured at #2.
We've got dog-friendly accommodations like no other! Choose from well-appointed cabins to full-amenity RVs and tent camping! The Getaway is an off-leash vacation experience for dogs and dog lovers to enjoy the outdoors together in the countryside. Your lodging fees also cover your enjoyment of the property that includes full use of the dining pavilion, pantry, bathroom & shower facilities, rest areas, agility field equipment, the Farm's trails, the winding creek, the pond and endless acres of fields and meadows -- the perfect backdrop for hiking, swimming and wading, playing fetch, birdwatching, relaxing, napping, and more. You can even go bass and trout fishing in our stocked pond!
Even when the Getaway is fully booked, at maximum capacity it's only 26 other dog loving guests. With 175 acres to roam, you and your dog will feel as though you have the Farm all to your own to explore. It's a very unique vacation experience to have so much land and so few people and even more unique, because dogs can enjoy it all off-leash! We have had guests travel with their dog(s) from as far away as Canada, California and Florida! Some guests make the Farm their destination while others pass through while traveling. But everyone has one thing in common... they are all dog lovers, happy to enjoy vacation time in the country with their dogs.
Season after season, we hear our guests marvel at Glen Highland Farm being the ideal vacation setting for them to unwind, relax and play in a place that is totally dog-friendly.
There is no hassle over what your dog can or cannot do... here at Glen Highland Farm, it is about freedom! Your dog can run freely off-leash through private trails, meadows, fields, forests and swim in the pond or creek without all the rules and limitations of public campgrounds and parks.
Your stay at the Farm supports our rescue operation, Sweet Border Collie Rescue. Since inception we have helped find forever homes for over 2000 border collies. Our guests like to tour the rescue operation during their stay. Many enjoy meeting the rescue dogs personally. You can feel great having a wonderful vacation and doing something wonderful for dogs in need.
