I am disappointed that The Wauwinet fell short of my expectations. I never write negative reviews but I feel very compelled to do so just to let other newlyweds know that it may not meet their expectations either. My husband and I stayed there this...More

No, dogs are not allowed at this property. Their sister property, "The Cottages & Lofts at the Boat Basin" does permit pets. Great place for them too - very welcoming with special treats for your extended family.
