Dog friendly at Grand Welcome Sea Ranch

Miles of hiking trails, numerous beaches, and even a dog park make Sea Ranch a great place to bring your 4-legged companion on vacation with you, and we welcome them at Grand Welcome Sea Ranch! We have a handful of properties that are dog-friendly so you hopefully won’t have any problems finding the perfect place to stay.

We require a phone confirmation and charge a small pet fee so please give us a call at (888) 780-4809 if you plan to bring your dog. We are happy to help during or after you’ve already made your booking.

Please note though, it’s required that you keep your pup on a leash at all times and stay on marked trails, which you’ll want to do any way for their safety. Venturing off can be dangerous for both you and your dog because of other animals and ticks that pose a threat year-round. Ticks are known to carry Lyme disease and other tick-born diseases so be careful and stay safe!
