Have a Look Inside This Adorable Beagle-Shaped Bed and Breakfast
Travel| | By Brian Delpozo
We’ve found the perfect beagle-shaped bed and breakfast to lay your head after a ruff night of travel.
Located in Cottonwood, Idaho, the Dog Bark Park Inn has been wowing visitors since 2003. The structure, built by Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin, is shaped like a giant beagle and is known as Sweet Willy.”
Guests ascend a flight of stairs to enter the living room, which is located in the dog’s “stomach,” and have access to a loft bedroom in the nose area. Sweet Willy is surrounded by a smaller dog statue named Toby, and an outhouse decorated to look like – what else? – a fire extinguisher.
In addition to the immediate surroundings, the Dog Bark Park’s Airbnb’s listing describes the nearby natural and manmade attractions visitors can enjoy near the site.
The listing touts that the inn is “located at the edge of Cottonwood in rural Idaho, expansive views of prairie grain fields and surrounding mountains are spectacular at any time of year. From the second-story deck, on clear nights the starry sky garden is equally impressive. The famed Hells Canyon Gorge of the Snake River is nearby, inviting visitors to explore it via jet boat tours spring through fall. Or explore Nez Perce native history and culture at interpretive sites and towns nearby.”
