Wind in the Pines accepts well-behaved children of all ages. Children can only be accommodated in the larger, lower level rooms (Bear and Moose Rooms). An additional charge of $25/child/day may apply. The Bear Room offers a twin sleeper (see room description) that can accommodate a child. Both the Bear and Moose Rooms have space for a portable crib. No children’s furnishings are provided. Please contact the innkeepers directly to make appropriate arrangements for children.


Wind in the Pines has a dog and a cat that request, “NO pets, please”. Out of consideration for our guests with allergies, our cat and dog are not allowed in any of the guestrooms and are strongly discouraged from visiting the guest common areas.


Due to allergies and our surrounding forest of dry pine needles, smoking is not permitted in the house or on the grounds.
