Back in January, this article from CNN (“8 elegant U.S. mansion hotels“) caught my eye — or, more accurately, the combination of the headline and the photo of Newport’s gorgeous Chanler Hotel caught my eye. Surely some of those beauties must be pet-friendly, I thought, and this weekend I finally made the time to find out.
It turns out that five of the eight featured hotels do allow pet dogs to join their owners. The … Read more
This was shaping up to be an epic Chloe’s Clicks last week — and then I missed posting it — so now it’s epic times two. Here we go, in no particular order.
The oldest link in the collection is a report from Laura Stephenson about her post-college road trip from Guatemala to Nicaragua and back — which I include because of its general can-do attitude and because she traveled with her dog Chispa. Also off the beaten track? Zuma’s Paw … Read more
Let’s be honest. I started collecting these links on September 2, so this is really an entire month’s collection. By now it’s old news that TripAdvisor posted a list of its ten most pet-friendly hotels in the U.S. — the algorithm is a little sketchy (“accommodations which have four or more circles out of five on TripAdvisor, and feature the greatest number of TripAdvisor traveler comments describing them as pet- or dog-friendly”), but I loved learning about The Paw House … Read more
I relaxed a little too much this weekend, and failed to write my Chloe’s Clicks post yesterday. Never mind — here it is, and it’s a good one.
We begin with a terrific series of posts that Edie Jarolim, blogging at Will My Dog Hate Me?, wrote about her recent flight from Tucson to San Diego (and back, of course) with her dog Frankie. Edie is a wonderful writer, and she handles her issues (anxiety over Frankie) and Frankie’s issues (diabetes, … Read more
What can I say? The holidays got ahead of me this time. Better late than never, though — you wouldn’t want to miss these links.
It’s all about the snow, this time of year, so you won’t be surprised that My Pet News has five pet-friendly ski resorts for you to consider, from Vermont to Wyoming (and then north to Lake Louise). Also consider two inns, one in Connecticut and the other in Ohio: The Interlaken Inn in Lakefield, CT reported that they’ve just … Read more
I have two weeks’ worth of dog travel links to tell you about, so sit down, shut up and hang on, as the bumper sticker says. This time of year, it’s all about the winter getaways, starting with a petswelcome.com post about dog-friendly hotels in Miami, Vermont and Monterey, and another post from the same folks about dog-friendly things to do in beautiful Santa Barbara. Kim Swidler, from timesunion.com, wrote a quick note about the Kiawah Island Golf Resort (located just south … Read more
Matching my cheerful mood here on a beautiful, perfect fall day in Paris, all of the dog travel links I have for you this week are fun and inspiring. Consider the following fall getaways for you and your pup:
A stroll through Atlanta’s Winn Park, brought to you by Diane and Cosmo of To Dog with Love;
A dog-friendly hike in Oregon’s McKenzie River Valley (trail blazed by Pippin the Golden Retriever, and his human Kyla Merwin Cheney, posting on Travel Oregon … Read more
In my last post, I mentioned that a handful of Landmark Trust properties are located in the United States and managed by Landmark Trust USA. They include Rudyard Kipling’s Vermont home, a 200 year-old farm that for 20 years was home to Carthusian monks, a Greek Revival farmhouse with magnificent views of Mount Monadnock, and a cozy former sugarhouse located near Brattleboro.
Upon enquiry, I learned that the Sugarhouse is dog-friendly. There is no limit on the number of dogs that … Read more
