In the spirit of offering a pet (dog) friendly resort, we reserve the right to deny entry, or remove any dog exhibiting aggressive behavior, as this may pose a threat to the many adults, small children, and other dogs which are on site. Please consider this advice before arrival!
While you and your pet are enjoying your time together, we ask that you please respect our pet policy. TBRR is a dog friendly resort. Regrettably we do not allow cats onsite. You may bring up to 3 pets. We require and enforce responsible pet owner practices in consideration of our guests. Damage caused by pets to our buildings or facilities will be charged to your credit card within 48 hours of check out. Please see that pets stay off of the furniture. If, however, your pet is insistent on “hopping up”, please ensure you cover all furniture and bedding with sheets or blankets brought from home. Pets should at no time be left alone in your cottage/chalet unless you are using a dog crate.
Dog fees: a fee of $10 for 1 pet per day, $15 for 2 pets per day, or $20 for 3 pets per day, will be applied to your bill. Other pets such as fish, hamsters, bunnies do not attract charges.
Hot Tub Policy
Maximum four people permitted, and only occupants of the Chalet 14 are permitted to use the Hot Tub. No food can be consumed in our Hot Tubs, and only beverages in plastic glasses are permitted. Do not adjust the temperature or leave the cover off when the hot tub is not being used. Please do not leave outdoor lights on all night. If the Hot Tub is left in un-serviceable condition, including temperature turned down, spoiled / scummy water, or lowered water level, a charge for an extra nights rental will be immediately levied to your credit card if TBRR is unable to rent the Hot Tub Chalet to incoming guests. Additionally, cleaning / refill / reheat charges will also be charged to your credit card.

If roads are open, so is the TBRR! We make every effort to plow and blow snow in order that the resort is safe and functional. In the event that Nova Scotia Transport closes Hwy 102 or Hwy 215 for more than 4 hours before and 4 hours after check in time, and you elect not to come to TBRR, the TBRR will issue you a rain check to be used in the next 180 days, for the deposit amount of your booking, normally 50% of the full charge. Unless there is a formal road closure our normal cancellation policy applies, and no shows will be charged in full for their booking since the space confirmed has been allocated exclusively to your reservation.
