About the Owner

We first visited Fort Morgan in 2017 in search of a place we could take our dog with us on a beach vacation. Needless to say we fell in love. On our third trip to Fort Morgan in October of 2018 we bought the property. By July 2019 Paws & Relax was built! It was a whirlwind and we wouldn't change a thing. We have truly fallen in love with the area and the people.
Starting 3/10/2022 - Beach towels will be provided.
Summer reservations (May 15th-August 13th 2022) will have a 10x10 beach canopy set up on the beach for Paws & Relax guest use. Canopy cannot be moved and subject to availability due to severe weather. Guests are expected to clear the beach of all other beach gear at night for the safety of sea turtles.
