Pet Friendly Asheville Lodging

Ida Claire and Stryker Roch are our two Pembroke Welsh Corgis.

Ida Claire is feisty and fun loving. She can’t get enough of play time. She is a classic red color with a soft sweet face. Ida has never met a human she didn’t love.

Stryker Roch is a tri-color and is the love bug of the two. He has deep soulful eyes and a calm demeanor. He loves people and will greet you with enthusiasm at our pet friendly Asheville Lodging.
The two of them are virtually inseparable. Ida and Stryker come to visit with guests on request of the guests. If you love dogs these two will steal your heart.
