The Dog Bark Inn: Where Sleeping in the Doghouse is a Good Thing
Visit the world’s ‘biggest Beagle’.
If you’re looking for a quirky travel experience, look no further than The Dog Bark Park Inn—a two-story hotel in Cottonwood Idaho modeled after a giant Beagle (and it looks just like one!). Run by husband and wife artists, Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin, the inn is the ultimate stay for those who are, hands down, die-hard dog lovers.
The duo, who specializes in chainsaw art and woodcarvings, created the Dog Bark Park themselves. Guests can enter through the body of the dog to a private second-story deck, before meandering up to the head—which features a loft room with additional sleeping space and an alcove in the muzzle. A pastiche of dog-themed decorations are scattered throughout the inn, giving it a true canine feel. The lodging season runs from April 1st through October 31st, and rates begin at $98/night—dog bones not included!
