Finding dog-friendly B&Bs in the U.S. and abroad: Three more resources

Last September I told you about Bed & Breakfast Inns Online, a database of B&Bs in the U.S. that you can search for pet-friendly properties. Since then, I’ve come across three other sites you should know about:

California Association of Bed & Breakfast Inns ( — This site focuses (surprise!) on B&Bs in California. To identify dog-friendly inns, click on “Advanced Search” in the orange square. Select the region you’re interested in (and the city, if you have one in mind) and then click on “Facilities.” A list of options will appear; check “Pets Allowed” and then click the “Search” button.

Pamela Lanier’s Bed & Breakfast Inns ( — Use this site to find B&Bs in the U.S. and around the world. In the menu bar at the top of the page, click on “Search.” On the next page, click on “Search by Amenity” (in the right-hand column). Choose your destination, scroll down and check the box next to “Pet Friendly,” then scroll back up and click on the blue arrow to the right of your destination name. ( — This site too collects B&Bs from around the world. At the top of the home page, you’ll see six orange tabs. Hover over “Search” and click on the menu item “Detailed Search.” Check the circle next to “Pets Welcome,” choose your search area, and click on the blue “Go” button.

    Great resources — with the caveat, of course, that pets welcome can mean a lot of different things. Some B & Bs, for example, only set aside a single room for one small dog (as I disovered when I tried to book a room that would welcome me and Frankie and a friend with a medium sized dog).

  • You are so right, Edie. Best not to get your hopes up too much until you talk to an inn’s owner about what’s available….

  • I’d be thrilled, Rod, if Go Pet Friendly collected all that info, if only for the U.S. B&Bs! Here’s a request: Could you keep B&B info in a category of its own, instead of grouping it into an overarching “hotels” category? That would be super-useful — a lot of people really like B&Bs, and would appreciate being directed to them.
