About Us

Ivandale Farms Pet Lodge, LLC provides the ultimate in pet luxury, safety and fun.  We dedicate ourselves to your pets needs giving personal attention, love and exercise so you can relax on your vacation knowing your pet is in good hands.

Please note: Dogs who are not guests of the Pet Lodge are not allowed on the property. When arriving and departing with your dog, your dog must at all times be on a leash. This is for the safety of our free range poultry and for the safety of your dog. Dogs should not be left unsupervised in the car. Guests of the Pet Lodge have acres of fenced in fields to run and play with each other in supervised environment.

Wondering if your dog will be happy here?  We have many happy clients and they have four things in common:  They like people, attention, other dogs and being outside.  Sometimes being outside means running and playing with the other dogs and sometimes it means they like to sniff around the fields.  Many dogs who visit us regularly visit dog parks.  Many of our smaller or older dogs are very happy to have our company, rest in the sun with me while we are outside or rest in the office and to feel at home.  All guests must be either spayed or neutered and minimally not be aggressive towards other dogs.  A friendly, social dog young old, big or small will have the best success at the Pet Lodge.

We cater to large, medium and small dogs and we love them all!  Our facility allows us separate areas for housing large and small dogs creating a more peaceful environment.  If you choose to have your dog participate in a play group, these are also divided by size and temperament.  All dogs spend an equal amount of time outside running, playing, sniffing or just enjoying the sunshine!

As pet owners, we recognized a need for a boarding kennel with a home-like environment.  Our size will remain small so we can uphold our mission of providing each pet with individual attention, love and exercise. As our rate is all-inclusive, you will not find additional fees added to your bill for extra attention, love, meals, medications nor exercise.  These services are already included in your rate.  A bath is also included for stays longer than two nights.  The Pet Lodge is taking reservations today.  Please make your reservation early to ensure a space.

Our Facility

Situated on 26 acres of wooded farmland in Loudoun County, your pets vacation destination has walking trails throughout the property adjacent to the W&OD trail, fenced grassy outside play areas and a large indoor play area.

Each pet is housed in its own private suite with radiant floors, elevated beds and soothing music piped into the suite. Family suites are available for family members. Most suites have a window to the outside.

A Typical Day at the Lodge

Your dog will begin the day with a short walk around the farm before breakfast. After breakfast and a short rest, the first 45 minute group play session will take place either outdoors on a nice day or in our large, indoor play room. Your dog will be in a small group of friendly dogs of similar sizes. 

We cater to large, medium and small dogs and we love them all!  Our facility allows us separate areas for housing large and small dogs creating a more peaceful environment.  If you choose to have your dog participate in a play group, these are also divided by size and temperament.  All dogs spend an equal amount of time outside running, playing, sniffing or just enjoying the sunshine!

Lunch hour is a rest time for the guests followed by an afternoon play session of 45 minutes that may include chasing balls, relaxing in the living room, or a pool party on a warm day. Dinner follows a short outdoor break. Evenings may consist of a movie night, an adventure walk on the property over creeks and through fruit orchards or a short play session before getting settled in bed with a goodnight cookie.

We understand that some dogs may prefer more quality time with people and little or no interaction with other dogs. We are happy to work with you to give your pet the best experience possible.

Reservations and Pricing

One all-inclusive rate includes all activities, personal care and attention, special meals, and medications.

Dogs: $50.00 per night.  A second dog, less than 20 lbs. staying in the same room and able to eat without supervision is $35.00 per night.

Payment by cash or check is appreciated. Please note that we cannot accept credit cards at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Reservations

A two day deposit must accompany reservations during holidays. Deposits will be refunded with ten days notice of cancellation. Due to our small size, please make your reservations early.

NOTE on FOOD: We require you to bring enough food for your dog to last during his or her stay. We find that switching foods for a visit causes undue distress to a dog’s stomach. There is no additional fee for special feeding requirements.

WHAT to BRING: Your dog and his or her food is all that we require. You are welcome to bring anything else you would like. Some people bring snacks, toys, beds or a blanket that smells like home.
