Great places to Vacation with basenjis

We found a wonderful place in North Carolina last spring (2006), about 10 miles south of Asheville. "Barkwells" is six fenced acres with a pond, and each cabin (had 3 when we were there, now have a total of 5) has a small fenced yard, as well as dog doors and hot tubs for the humans. If all the dogs get along, they can all be out in the big area while you are home, but if you leave the dogs home alone, they have their private yard accessable by their dog door. Really a wonderful place, we stayed on the property for a couple of days and just rested and walked around, but the Blue Ridge Parkway is only 10 miles away, and the scenery is gorgeous. Not cheap, but a real treat for us after not taking a vacation for over 10 years, as we didn't want to leave our babies behind, and not many places were "dog friendly".

We also found a nice cabin with a fenced yard in north Georgia last fall, about half the price of Barkwells, at "Above the Rest" Cabin Rental.

Now I want to travel more with my 3, am looking for great places to stay, preferably affordable!

Anyone else found any great places to stay?

Thanks for the info!! We went to the beach in Pt. Pleasant NJ this summer for 2 weeks. Although we were at a rented beach house there were lots of places nearby that allowed dogs AND they had a man made doggy beach Fishermans Cove Matawan, NJ about 10 min away which was fun for the furries…and they also had a real beach for dogs that you can purchase a pass to in Mantolooking Beach, NJ.

there is a website i found that lists pet friendly lodging by state. it seemed pretty good.. its petfriendlytravel . com

Wow, Pt Pleasant, NJ… you are bringing back memories.... used to vacation there in the summers with my family growing up and years and years... stayed like two months.... one of our favorite places to eat was the "Lobster Shanty" in Pt. Pleasant... is it still there? I was born and raised in Pa (Bucks Country)....

Lobster Shanty is alive & kickin! 😃 😃 Still a great place to eat along with the Wharfside Patio & the Tiki Bar on the boardwalk..that is life 🙂
