The Dog Days of Summer at Red Mountain Resort
~ Active Retreat Offers Pet-Friendly Accommodations and Activities ~
St. George, UTAH, August XX, 2013 – For those who think traveling with pets is “ruff,” Red Mountain Resort provides a pet-friendly respite amid Southwest Utah’s breathtaking red rocks. Recently recognized as a top pet-friendly hotel for outdoor enthusiasts by USA Today, Red Mountain is an ideal destination to enhance guests’ health and wellness alongside their four-legged friends through its exceptional pet-friendly programs.
“Red Mountain is proud to offer guests the option to travel with their pets, as well as provide them with pet-friendly volunteer opportunities,” says General Manager, Tracey Welsh. “Our offerings allow guests to gain a better understanding of animals, along with a greater appreciation for themselves and an overall improved mindset.”
The resort offers special deluxe accommodations for guests traveling with pets, as well as a 55-acre scenic backyard and nearby Snow Canyon State Park for pets to play. Red Mountain also pampers pets with organic treats, food and water dishes upon arrival, while their owners can indulge in healthy and delectable cuisine at the resort’s Canyon Breeze Restaurant.
In addition to experiencing Red Mountain’s scenic beauty and active offerings with their furry friends, pet-lovers can also lend a hand at the local Ivins City No-Kill Animal Shelter by participating in the resort’s Pound Puppy Hike, a complimentary activity for guests. This gratifying volunteer experience encourages guests to share their exploration of Southern Utah alongside man’s best friend. In partnership with the shelter, guests are assigned a friendly puppy or dog for a 1.5 mile hike at the base of Red Mountain. Participants are supplied with dog treats, and donations for the shelter are greatly appreciated.
Guests traveling with pets can take advantage of Red Mountain’s variety of Retreat Packages, and can currently receive 15% off their retreat in celebration of the resort’s 15 years of adventure and relaxation. Red Mountain’s Essential Retreat package starts at $200 through Sept. 14, 2013 and includes three healthy meals daily, unlimited fitness classes, daily guided morning hikes, healthy life classes and events, personal discovery activities, “Eat Well, Feel Well” cooking demonstrations and more.
