Pet Estates Inc. now booking boarding for pets for the holidays!

Yes, we will be open for boarding pets this winter. Taking bookings now. Space limited.

Because Pet Estates / Merry Lynn Kennels is a pet resort and not a kennel, we are different from your average boarding facility. Pets are not placed in a chain link cage but rather a home environment. You are able to choose from several accommodations – suites, condo units, bunkhouse or townhouses. This enables you to select where your pet will be most comfortable so that they can enjoy their vacations while you enjoy yours.
