Let your pets get in on the Five-Star experience. At these three luxurious hotels, your dogs will sit in the lap of luxury, and they don’t even have to be lap dogs. These bark-worthy amenities are for pets of any weight and size:
The Point, The Adirondacks, NY. Sitting on a 10-acre peninsula on Upper Saranac Lake, this Five-Star resort is a pet’s dream. Here, pets (you can bring more than one) are free to roam the relaxing wilderness, hike the nature trails and swim in the lake — leash free. Your pooch will receive the total Five-Star treatment without any additional fees. Chef Mark Levy whips up fresh chicken and rice come mealtime, and he’ll happily cater to any dietary requirements. Keep your eyes peeled for Buddy, the golden retriever in residence, who belongs to the resort’s general manager Meghan Torrance. He loves dogs almost as much as he loves humans, and he never misses a boat ride.
Woodlands Inn, Summerville, SC. When you and your pup arrive at this Five-Star South Carolina hotel, you’ll be greeted with a bone, a dog bed and food bowls — all for a $25 pet-owner fee. Woodlands Inn’s dog butler will show you to your soundproof room (just in case your dog is a barker), and the hotel chef will prepare meals for your pet and create custom dog dishes upon request. Dog walks are handled by the hotel staff, and you can book grooming services as well.
Boston Harbor Hotel, Boston, MA. At the Five-Star Boston Harbor Hotel, dogs enjoy complimentary water and treats, walks from the hotel staff and spa services. If your dog is in need of a clean up, book the Pamper Your Pooch package, which includes a dog spa day at Spoochies Spa and Boutique in Boston’s South End. Your dog will get a wash, cut, blow dry and a nail trim. The cost of the package (which includes transportation, treatments and goodie bag) starts at $75.
