Pets hold a special place in our hearts. And, if you’re a pet owner, you understand the bond you share and that feeling you get when you walk in the door and are welcomed by a warm “woof” or “meow.” Getting showered in unconditional love by your furry four-legged friend when you get home can be highlight of your day, and you’ll feel that same warmth at a pet-friendly bed and breakfast.
Bringing Fido along on your getaway means you can indulge in some R&R together. But even if you can’t, there are many B&B mascots at the inns who are always excited to meet new guests. You can see it in their wagging tails of hear it in their soft purrs. Whether playing a game of catch alongside the beautiful manicured gardens or lounging on the inn’s peaceful porches, these mascots will keep you company and make your stay as memorable as possible.
In honor of National Pet Week, taking place May 5 – 11, we are showcasing some of the top canine hosts and feline ambassadors you might encounter on your next getaway:
A historic New England bed and breakfast, The Inn at English Meadows located in
Kennebunkport, ME, not only offers guests chic and luxurious accommodations, but it is also home to Bailey. This adorable Goldendoodle enjoys spending time at the beach and is always there to greet guests when they arrive. Missing your own tail-waggin’ companion? Bailey would be more than happy to accompany you during breakfast on the inn’s patio.
You’ll enjoy awe-inspiring views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains on the six quiet country acres surrounding the Casa Escondida located in Chimayo, NM. Griffin, the inn’s cat, will be awaiting your arrival and can offer a special turndown service: He’ll “warms” your bed before you settle in for the night. A nice scratch behind the ear is all he asks for in return.
Planning on heading down the Mt. Hood Scenic Byway? Then be sure to make a pit stop at the Old Parkdale Inn located in the Hood River Valley of Parkdale, OR. While you’re there, take a picture with Tilly to commemorate your time spent at the inn. It could be featured on her very own Facebook page!
Looking for the “purr”-fect place to soak up the sun? Then pack you bags and head to Santa Rosa Beach, FL, where the cozy and quaint Hibiscus Coffee and Guesthouse is located. Spend the afternoon at the beach or in the “Backyard of Love” where friendly inn feline, Hef, is more than happy to indulge in a little “lap lounging” in the sun or the shade.
These mascots are just some of the furry friends you might encounter on your getaway. Make sure to visit our “B&B Mascots” Pinterest board to see who else you might meet along the way!
