Visitors looking for a pet friendly place to stay in Hudson need look no further than The Barlow, especially now! Beginning May 23 The Barlow has designated a second pet friendly room so that people traveling with their furry companions have a place to stay. When The Barlow first opened one of the most commonly asked questions was “Do you allow pets?” and we were happy to say that we do. As one of the few lodging options in the area that is pet friendly the hotel became fairly well known as being welcoming to four legged guests and the room that was designated as such frequently booked up sometimes months in advance. In response to this demand, and as pet lovers, we thought it would be a good idea to make one of our existing rooms pet friendly.
There are policies at The Barlow for guests bringing pets with them. While these policies are in place to ensure the comfort of every guest they are also designed for the comfort of the animal – foremost of which is not leaving them alone in the room. For those people that aren’t able to keep their pet with them at all times the hotel also offers a pet sitter for an additional fee; someone who will stay in the guests’ room, make sure the pet is comfortable and has water, and will take them for short walks.
In addition to the expansion of our pet friendly accommodations beginning June 1 The Barlow will also be donating 100% of all pet fees collected to the Columbia Greene Humane Society. The CGHS is our local shelter whose mission is to care for and re-home abused, neglected and abandoned animals as well as provide affordable cost veterinary services to low income households. Serving over 5,000 animals every year, the Columbia Greene Humane Society plays a vital role in the community including offering a free food pantry for those that need it. Finally, local residents and visitors can also make use of the wonderful boarding and grooming services offered at the shelter where pets are treated like royalty.

The Barlow is pleased to be a pet friendly hotel and to support such a worthwhile organization as the Columbia Greene Humane Society.
