If you are ever traveling to Cottonwood, Idaho then be sure to stop at The Dog Bark Park Inn. This is a very special inn that is shaped like a giant Beagle dog. For a $100 per night, you can lodge in this very interesting bed & breakfast establishment that is independently owned and built. The design of the structure was created by two married artists named Frances Conklin and Dennis Sullivan, who nicknamed it “Sweet Willy.”
Guests who stay in Sweet Willy will get 2-bedrooms and 1-bathroom, a breakfast menu made up of foods that come from Conklin’s own family recipes, and an extended breakfast which includes donuts, bagels, yogurt, homemade granola, and cereal. One of the bedrooms is even located inside the dog’s giant nose. There are no televisions or phones in the rooms because the owners want the guests to appreciate the picturesque views of the outdoors. They’re encouraged to walk around the sculpture gardens, the portable hydrant-shaped toilet and the smaller Beagle dog structure that goes by the name of “Toby.” This is certainly a hotel that you will not find anywhere else which makes it well worth the $100 per night to stay there.
This is the room inside the dog’s nose…
…and don’t forget about the portable toilet inside the hydrant!
