Created as an alternative to traditional

boarding kennels – The Barksville Inn is a

home-away-from-home for dogs in CNY.

Instead of confined kennels or lonely suites –

our pack-friendly open living space means happier and healthier guests enjoying their own vacation.  You love them like family - give them the boarding experience they deserve.

  small, affordable, in-home, cage-free

A home not a kennel

As a dog dads themselves - Innkeepers David & Kevin understands how important your four-legged family member(s) are to you and the incredible responsibility they accept when you entrust your dog’s care to them.  You can take comfort knowing your dog will be supervised around-the-clock in a pack-friendly, cage-free home.  

 

During the day – our guests burn off energy in our over-sized fenced in yard & regular field trips to area parks, local hiking trails or for a swim in the lake.

At night – guests can choose where they would like to sleep..... one of our many dog beds, comfy chairs, raised dog cots with a blanket and teddy bear or in bed with our overnight Innkeeper.  

Our all-inclusive boarding services means never paying extra for anything, ever.  No late pick-up fees if running late, no reservation changes or cancelation fees & 5-Star rated grain-free dog food and treats.
