Barkwells was the perfect place for us and our four dogs. My husband and I took a "working" vacation. During the days, we "hung out" in our cabin using wifi, working at our own pace. We took walks with our dogs on the lovely property, swam in the pond, and enjoyed the hot tub. We met wonderful people and simply relaxed. It was great knowing our dogs were not only welcome, but were honored guests. Our cabin was perfect for us (and the beds super comfortable) and our dogs enjoyed it too. I brought a stack of brochures and have been giving them to everyone I know who travels (or would like to travel) with their dog(s). Highly recommended! And downtown Asheville is just 15 minutes away!
