Bed & Breakfast news for Innkeepers and B&B travelers

If you’re a pet owner or have ever owned a pet, then you understand the meaning of unconditional love. Whether you’ve had a tough day or not, your furry friend is always ready to happily greet you with the same excited wagging tail or soothing purr. Your mood can go from blue to completely new just by walking in the door.

So, when it comes to traveling, it’s hard to look at those puppy dog eyes and say good-bye. Luckily, a pet-friendly getaway to a B&B allows for pet owners to hit the road with their trusty four-legged friend instead of leaving them behind. But, the term “pet-friendly” doesn’t only describe a policy at some of these inns; it’s also a lifestyle. If you decide to stay at one of these inns, don’t be surprised to find one of their pet mascots happily greeting you at the door when you arrive.

Located in Savannah, GA, the Azalea Inn & Garden’s Yorkshire Terrier, Joey, takes his role as the inn’s greeter very seriously and is always ready and waiting to spend time with the guests. But, greeting isn’t his only talent; Joey just starred in a couple of videos created by the inn including one on the best places to go in Savannah and another on how to plan your perfect wedding day at the inn. The Lodge at Moosehead Lake, located in
Greenville, ME, will roll out the red carpet for you and your canine companion. Along with your top-notch accommodations, Fido will get to sleep in a plush bed, relax during a doggie massage and snack on Chloe’s Canine Crunchies, freshly-made, organic dog treats named after the inn’s mascot, Chloe, a French bulldog.

Reese, the resident cat at the Rabbit Hill Inn located in the Northeast Kingdom Region of Vermont, showed up out of the blue one day and decided she wanted to call the inn home; and, that’s how she makes guests feel when they arrive. When Reese isn’t enjoying some moments of relaxation, she’s accompanying guests around the inn and keeping them entertained. If you think B&B mascots only come in the dog and cat variety, you haven’t met Bacon and Miss Piggy. They’re a pair of pot-bellied pigs who live at the Orchard House located in Granville, OH, and are the inn’s official greeters. When they’re off the clock and have some time to spare, the pair spend their day rolling in mud and enjoying all the benefits of country living.

These mascots are only some of the pets you might encounter at a B&B. You can see more of them on our “B&B Mascots” Pinterest board!

  1. It’s fantastic that so many B&Bs are becoming pet friendly. It makes such a difference to be able to travel with our dog, but still be able to enjoy quality accommodations.

  2. Yes, it’s fun to be able to spend a vacation with your pet, especially because they’re like part of the family.
