No need to leave Fido at home the next time you’re traveling. The latest travel trend involves outrageous pet perks that will have your pooch pampered from head to toe while on the go. From check-in to check-out, your furry friend will be treated like complete royalty. Think amenities like poolside pet massages, gourmet in-room dinning, beer for dogs and more. It’s safe to say that they’ll be having the best vacation ever when you check in to these six pet-friendly hotels around the U.S. 

Inn by the Sea, ME

Your dog will be treated like complete royalty when checking in to the Inn by the Sea in Cape Elizabeth, Maine. The “INNcredible Pets” packages include some pretty awesome pet perks, like getting her very own food bowls, gourmet meals, beach towels, turndown treats, a 30-minute massage and a personalized bed from local Maine company L.L.Bean. Doggie daycare is also available should you want to partake in date night and the inn also provides a list of dog-friendly beaches, walking trails and parks nearby. 

The Point, NY 

After your dog has had a long day of basking in the sun on Saranac Lake at The Point in New York, he can indulge in a brewski from Bowser Beer for dogs. Yes, you read that correctly. Your furry friend can truly live it up with Beefy Brown Ale and Cock-a-Doodle Brew. And once he’s finished, he can retire in his own hip flannel bed and snack on Bowser Bits pretzel nuggets and bottled water, which is all part of their welcome basket.

Topnotch Resort, VT

Fido won’t have to lift a paw at Topnotch Resort in Stowe, VT. Dogs are treated like royalty. And the amenities are definitely top-notch when staying here, for both you and your pooch. Think turndown service, poolside massages and healing Rover Reiki treatments plus endless activities you can do with your dog. In fact, your dog may choose to never leave after being pampered at this resort. 

Montage Deer Valley, UT

Montage Deer Valley is the ultimate mountain escape for both you and your pooch. Dogs up to 45 pounds are allowed and are greeted at check-in with a welcome dog toy, organic chicken and peanut butter flavored treats and all-natural, gluten-free jerky. And a good night’s sleep is part of the plan, as each dog gets their very own deluxe bed. And should they get lonely, they can also go play with the resort’s mascot Monty — an adorable, loving Bernese mountain dog.
