This is a magical destination that brings great joy to young and old. My daughter loved playing with the unique creations in the Dog Park, and the room was super comfortable and filled with books and games. We had plenty to do on our three day stay, and Dennis and Frances were the absolute best. We cannot wait to return.

This place is run by two of the nicest people you will ever meet. Honest and hard working people that love their job and it shows in their attention to detail and warm personalities. Everytime me and my wife turned around there was something new to discover. Driving by you might think, ""oh there's an abnormally big dog, that's cute."...

We are so glad your family enjoyed your visit and took the opportunity to take a rest break from driving, if only for a few minutes.

We took our beagle on vacation from UT to the Dog Bark Park Inn. Usually when we stay somewhere I view it as a place to sleep and leave my things. However, I found myself wanting to spend time at the Bark Park. There is a trail that used to be railroad tracks we walked our dog on for miles....

So many of our guests also enjoy simply hanging out in the big dog to experience being there; from star gazing, playing some of the board games, reading a selection from the library, or letting their imaginations run free while enjoying the quiet of no neighbors. Sampling locally crafted ales & meeting local folks at Wolf Track Brewery is a...

After reading about the Dog Bark Park Inn in the Sacramento Bee, we knew we had to come and stay in Sweet Willy. What great experience it was! The room was in the belly of the Beagle. It was well worth the climb to enter the charmingly appointed, cozy room decorated with all things dog. Frances and Dennis didn't spare...

This destination has been on my bucket list since I discovered it. I love beagles so I was drawn to this very unique concept for a bed and breakfast.

I'm very late doing this review, but have only got great things to say about Dog Bark Park Inn!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a nice review of your visit. It's always so fun to be part of a planned surprise for a member of the travel party.

I loved my stay here. It is unique and quirky but very comfortable. I ad the whole dog to myself which was nice. I could see it being great for a couple or a family with kids but the loft wouldn't really be super comfortable for adults. The bedroom and bath were both spacious and the bed was great. It...

It was our pleasure to have met you & so glad you enjoyed your time here. We agree, the queen bed is super comfy; in fact we first tested the mattress on our home bed & promptly ordered another one just like it for the inn. Many people comment about such a good sleep.
