NB: due to continued public health concerns, Pendle Hill has made the difficult decision to close our campus to outside visitors until the virus is contained, and at least through 10/01/2020. You can read the letter from our Interim Executive Director about this decision. We will announce our opening date on our website and e-newletter at least two months prior to welcoming visitors. Until we know our opening date, we will not be able to accept any sojourning reservations. Thank you for your patience and understanding in these times.

In the event that the presence of a service animal is requested, Pendle Hill follows the ADA guidelines, which state that a service animal is limited to dogs or miniature horses that are trained to do work or perform tasks for individuals with disabilities. The task(s) performed by the service animal must be directly related to the person’s disability. The service animal must be on a leash, harness, or tether and under the control of the handler at all times.
Per ADA guidelines, “comfort” or “emotional support animals” and service-animals-in-training do not meet the definition of a service animal. Pets are also not permitted at Pendle Hill.
