Quirky Hotel in Idaho Shaped Like a Dog


For dog lovers looking to take a trip to Idaho, we’ve found the perfect place to stay overnight! Located in Cottonwood, Idaho, Dog Bark Park Inn (aka Sweet Willy) is a specifically themed hotel shaped like a beagle. The two-bedroom bed & breakfast boasts a number of dog-themed design choices from the architecture itself to the interior decor.

The husband and wife wood carving artists behind the inn, Dennis Sullivan and Francis Conklin, first began experimenting with wood art nearly two decades ago. They say, “Our ‘big break’ came in 1995 when our carvings were sold on QVC television. We did nothing but carve wooden dogs for 18 months (our children barely remember seeing us during those days!), made what seemed like a bundle of money, invested it all in developing and building Dog Bark Park.”

Now, the couple continues to carve folk-art style wooden replicas of dogs, having already created over 60 different breeds of canines, and rent out their massive, towering tourist attraction. Check out the lodge’s website for a full list of amenities and pricing.
