Animals Are Not Allowed.

Service Dogs: In recent years countless dog owners have begun claiming their pet is a "service animal" because the Americans With Disabilities Act, ADA Title III Regulations, makes it illegal for hotels or inns to charge them a cleaning fee. Although, there is an exemption, section 36.104 Definitions, Place of Public Accommodation (1), states "Place of lodging, except for an establishment located within a facility that contains not more than five rooms for rent or hire and that actually is occupied by the proprietor of the establishment as the residence of the proprietor. It's not legal for hotels and inns to charge a cleaning fee for service animals." Therefore the Galloway House Inn is exempt as it is owner-occupied and has less than five guest suites.

Terms: Guests agree to indemnify and save individual owners, Keith K. Galloway, and his employees, free and harmless for any liabilities or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from, related to, or in any connection with the rental of the premises, including but not limited to, any claim or liability of personal injury or damage or loss of property which is incurred or sustained by a guest or the guests of a guest. Keith Galloway reserves the right to refuse or discontinue tenancy if, in his sole opinion, any person displays inappropriate behavior. Guests will be responsible for any damages or theft.
