Sleep Inside A Beagle! Dog Bark Park Inn

Dog bark park inn

Is that a hotel shaped like a dog?

YES!! I saw an article on Dog Bark Park Inn aaaand within one minute, booked a night no questions asked — a total impulse purchase, ha.

So, this is quite literally a one-room Beagle-shaped bed + breakfast and just the cutest thing ever. His tail is a chimney! It’s in the middle of nowhere in Idaho (we flew into Portland and drove the 6 hours to Cottonwood, Idaho) and the artists who created it — Dennis and Frances — are just the sweetest couple that ever lived. Inspired by their own beagles (now passed) Tony and Sweet Willy.

There are some cool sculptures and carvings on the lot too, like a giant fire hydrant (a real porta-potty!) and a huge coffee pot.

With the room, you also get a delicious homemade breakfast, snacks and cookies and a ton of puzzles, games, dog books, no TV but yes, there is WIFI. Up to two pets, any size, are welcome for an additional $15/pet!
