Barkwells Faithful Friends Program

Not only dogs are our faithful friends. We appreciate our guests who come back to Barkwells on a regular basis and become loyal and faithful friends, too.  You make us feel extraordinary!

Our Faithful Friends Program (FFP) is designed to acknowledge our appreciation for consistent patronage of both our two and four-legged friends. Following are the rewards (no clickers needed) for our friends as they return for another visit.

When you arrive for your 3rd visit, you’ll find

  • a bottle of bubbly, local wine , six pack of Sierra Nevada beer or non-alcoholic local cider in your cabin to wet your whistle. Let us know which you prefer.

Beginning with your 4th stay, on your arrival,

  • a paw print bag will be in your cabin containing a bottle of local (NC) wine,  six-pack of beer or hard cider (see above), and some of the following depending on season and availability: local Hickory Nut Gap Meats, local Roots and Branches crackers, Asheville Pretzel Company Pretzels, locally made Lusty Monk Mustard, organic apples,  The Hop ice cream, dog treats from Woof Gang Bakery. We do reserve the right to substitute other products if we find a different wonderful local item we think you’ll enjoy.

On your 10th stay with us,

  • you’ll receive two Barkwells’ special loyalty mugs, available only to 10+ stay loyalty guests, to enjoy and remember Barkwells at home.

We think you are very special and we want to thank you for your patronage. We wouldn’t be here without you and your furry family and we are delighted that you have taken Come. Sit. Stay.© to heart.

We look forward to your next visit!

With gratitude,

Michael and Ellen Winner
