The Wilburton Inn is more than pet-friendly, it’s pet celebrating! Four-legged innkeeper, Jetson the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, loves welcoming all breeds of dogs to this 30-acre paradise. Click here to watch a music video of Jetson & our guests.

This year we were thrilled to host 120 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels from 22 states across America for Cavapalooza and our Canine Costume Ball on Howl'oween!

We always waive dog fees on these weekends:

Mother's Day


Canine Pre-Christmas Doggie Slumber Party (the 2nd weekend of December)

Howl'oween! (The last weekend of October.)

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels always stay free.  Click here for all the photos on facebook.

Our Next Upcoming Dog Weekend: Thanksgiving 


Located on a 30-acre private estate, the Wilburton is a perfect place to enjoy the outdoors with your pooch.  All of our guest rooms and vacation homes are dog-friendly with the exception of the 11 guest rooms in the Wilburton Inn mansion. Dogs are welcome to dine al fresco at our organic outdoor Farm Night dinners on Wednesdays in Summer. Dog fees are $40/night per pet in inn rooms and $125/length of stay per pet in our vacation homes. Below is our Pet Policy that every pet owner is asked to sign.

Every pooch is welcomed with a special organic doggie treat from Wagatha's organic dog biscuits.

Jetson was named after our mom, "Grandma Gette" and her beloved dog, Jackson. Jackson came from a New York City shelter and lived a wonderful full life at the farm and the inn.  Jackson would love seeing so many four-legged friends romping on the grassy lawns of the Wilburton Inn. 

Here is a gallery of photos of Jetson and guests and fellow doggies. Please share your photos with us on Facebook.

They say that Cavaliers are like potato chips - you can't just have one.  So In honor of Jetson's 1st birthday, we waive the pet charge for all Cavalier King Charles dogs!
