The space

Stay in a giant dog! That's right, it's a beagle-shaped one-unit inn where being in this doghouse is a GOOD thing and comfortable to boot!
Located at the edge of Cottonwood in rural Idaho, expansive views of prairie grain fields and surrounding mountains are specatcular at any time of year. From the second story deck on clear nights the starry sky garden is equally impressive.
The famed Hells Canyon Gorge of the Snake River is nearby inviting visitors to explore it via jet boat tours spring through fall. Or explore Nez Perce native history and culture at interpretive sites and towns nearby.
Browse the adjacent Dog Bark Park visitor center, gift shop and artist studio where owners Dennis & Frances fashion canine carvings by chainsaw.

I love this B&B! My daughter and I had wanted to stay in the dog for sometime, and when the time came we were more than excited. Everything about our stay was amazing. Hosts Frances and Dennis are one of the nicest couples I have ever met. So welcoming. The dog is very comfortable. Amenities are great. I loved that the fridge came with goodies that made for great late night snacks while staying up playing fact or cr... I have stayed in many B&B and I have to say that this is one of the best. So unique and memorable for the kids and located in such a beautiful area. I recommend driving in from Missoula, MT. Its 3hrs but beautiful.

Dog Bark Park Inn B&B was the perfect halfway place to stop from our trip from Boise to Sandpoint. It is completely unique, yet a very comfortable place to stay. Frances and Dennis are wonderful hosts and their story about Dog Bark Park is very interesting. Definitely worth a visit.

I took my girlfriend (who is obsessed with canines) to experience the dog house for her birthday. This was the most amazing place that we have ever been! The dog is extremely comfortable and has everything you need. The breakfast is phenomenal too. Francis and Dennis were very helpful and an absolute joy to meet. They are truly inspiring people and made us feel so welcome. If you're reading this you're obviously considering staying at the giant dog. Do yourself a favour and book. It's the experience of a lifetime!

This was honestly the best B&B stay we've ever had, and we've stayed in quite a few! Frances and Dennis already have a fantastic thing going with the "stay in a giant dog" concept but they really go above and beyond with the hospitality part. We arrived late on account of running out of gas in a remote location and they were so kind and welcoming on our arrival it made our stress melt away. The breakfast was plentiful, thoughtfully prepared and took our special needs into account. And the tour of the studio the next morning was the highlight of our day.

I will echo what everybody else has said, an unforgettable experience. Frances and Dennis were warm and caring hosts and it's obvious that they genuinely love what they do. The attention to detail around the grounds is hard to miss. We were sad to leave. Yes it's kinda in the middle of nowhere and the highway can be slightly noisy, but the pros vastly outweigh the cons, especially for the price you're paying and the experience you will have. There's a reason why their calendar is so packed with guests. If you find a date you want, book it now- because it will go fast. We can't wait to visit again!

Frances and Dennis were simply the sweetest people on earth. Their stories about how the place came to be and just their past adventures were so wonderful to hear. They were also clearly knowledgeable about the area, because they were able to give us so many recommendations on where to go and what to do. I will admit that I was not used to being in such a rural area, and the lack of mobile service was alarming to me, but eventually, I was able to settle in and enjoy my time there. I'm also a huge dog lover, so I loved all the dog theme items in the room and all the books that were available to us. The art room was amazing too! I'm hoping to come back some day; it was so much fun.
