We loved this place. I've always wanted to stay here on my trips to the area when visiting family. I finally planned far enough in advance to do it this time. Like other reviewers have said, the owners were great. They really make you feel welcome at their B&B. It is amazing the attention to detail with all the cool... More

This is a dream come true. From the moment we arrived I felt a sense of love and magic in the air. The bed is oh so comfortable, the snacks and breakfast are homemade and yummy. Inside the beagle is just as you would imagine with a hand carved wooden head board of all different types of dogs. A large... More

I have had my eye on this beagle for the past ten years. Finally got to stay! The only thing superior to the stay were the innkeepers! Frances and Dennis are the nicest and most talented people you will ever meet. Sprocket is their family dog. You will love him as well. Sleeping in this unique and totally cool place... More

We are truly humbled when guests feel they've arrived home even though here is miles from their regular home. Instead of little house on the prairie we try to make all feel welcome at the big beagle house on the Idaho prairie. As Rick Steves says, "travel broadens perspectives." So too, as the big beagle inn creators & keepers, are... More

We agree the drive from any direction in Idaho to Dog Bark Park is quite beautiful along rivers, across prairies of agricultural land, in and out of the mountains, small towns here and there and always not much traffic. So glad you enjoyed your stay and time in Idaho. More

Indeed, the young of heart find staying in the big beagle an enjoyable experience to observe special occasions or simply to have a memorable overnight stay while travelling. We feel truly honored to be a part of so many people's special moments. It was a pleasure to have met you both. Here's to many more anniversaries. More

We stopped at the Dog Bark Park for two nights in June as part of our honeymoon road trip and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. Frances, Dennis and Sprocket are the perfect hosts. We arrived late but were welcomed warmly and made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. The room and amenities are lovely,... More

We are sorry the wifi is not lightning fast & sometimes spotty; unfortunately it's a fact of life in our rural area where things aren't quite as modern as the outside world.
