Since I am a dog lover, this place is definitely for me! Located in Cottonwood, Idaho, this hotel is actually in the shape of a dog. The room sleeps 4 and contains a full bath, a microwave, air conditioning, books, games, and puzzles, but no television or telephone. The owners say that you will feel the rural atmosphere more vividly without external influences. I think that Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin, the creators of this whimsical accommodation, were inspired by the love of animals and dogs in particular. When it came to the hotel, they decided to create a beagle-shaped building in order to lure more tourists and guests. And they were right! Their hobby and passion developed into one of the most unusual places in the world.
The hotel consists of two parts: Sweet Willy and Toby. Since this hotel is extremely popular with visitors, you should book the place in advance. Every detail inside displays the love of dogs: pillows, carpets, books, and even cookies. Moreover, the toilet is hydrant-shaped! When you stay you’ll also be treated to a continental self-serve breakfast and even dog food! I love travelling with my pets, thus I always appreciate hotels where pets are allowed.
