If you’re like us, Valentine’s Day has gone to the dogs! February 14 is an international celebration of love so, of course, we want to celebrate it with our our-legged sweethearts. We’ve put together a list of places that will welcome your pups with welcome arms (and paws!) for a Valentine’s Day date that you’ll never fur-get!
1. The Paw House Inn: West Rutland, Vermont
A weekend in the country is just what the love doctor ordered! At charming destinations like The Paw House Inn, not only will your dog be tolerated, he will spoiled and indulged! There’s something for everyone… rock climbing for Mom and Dad and agility for Fido.
2. Desert Hot Springs Inn: Desert Hot Springs, CA
If swank and style with exquisite views are up your alley, boutique resort hotels like the Desert Hot Springs Inn are for you. Spend Valentine’s Day soaking up the warm sun with a cold drink.
3. Carmel Country Inn: Carmel, CA
If a weekend getaway at more of a quaint destination is what you’re looking for, there are plenty of pet-friendly bed and breakfasts. Many even have nearby dog walkers and doggy day cares so your pup can have a day full of fun activities while YOU explore the vicinity.
4. Snowball fight!
Who doesn’t love fresh snow? Your pup sure does! It’s pretty, it’s white, it’s clean! Take advantage of new powder and then cuddle up with some hot chocolate and a warm fire. (Dog optional during cuddle session!)
5. Fireside Lodge: South Lake Tahoe, CA
There’s nothing better than a romantic date night in a log-cabin style lodge, except for a romantic WEDDING in a log-cabin style lodge! Inquire with the Fireside Lodge about their (gulp!) wedding packages and bring along your best friend to be your best man!
6. Casa Marina – A Waldorf Astoria Resort: Key West, FL
Humans like brunch. Pups like brunch. What’s NOT to like about brunch? Pick a spot with an outdoor patio, such as Casa Marina – A Waldorf Astoria Resort and enjoy!
7. Harriman State Park: Sloatsburg, NY
Head into the great outdoors! From east to west, from Harriman State Park to Golden Gate Park, hiking is a fun and healthy exercise. You’ll have plenty of opportunity for conversation so you can get to know your HOOMAN date better.
8. Sonic Drive-In: locations nationwide, USA
Get creative with dinner! Instead of making a standard reservation, opt for a drive-in. Apple slices are on the menu at Sonic…and they just happen to be a healthy pooch snack. Coincidence? I think not.
