Before you make your reservation, please note: Though we share a fondness for animals, as our founder Marjorie Merriweather Post did, for the safety and comfort of all our visitors and the conservation of our grounds, pets are not permitted at Hillwood. We cannot allow entrance to any vehicles with pets inside.

Hillwood does not permit smoking anywhere on the grounds.
