Barkwells is great, we've visited twice and can't wait to go back. The dogs get an amazingly beautiful, fenced in 8ish acres of fields, trees and even a huge pond to run, swim and play to their hearts' content, and their humans get NICELY appointed cabins...all the little extras are there: hot tub on the front porch, satellite tv, memory foam beds and pillows, dishwasher, washer/dryer, AC, coffee maker, ice & water in the fridge door...and so clean! We drove 1,100 miles for a "family vacation" with our 3 basset hounds, and stayed for 10 blissful days. The grounds are lovely, and since Barkwells is nestled right in the Blue Ridge Mts, the scenery and outdoor adventure opportunities in the surrounding area are boundless. If you like friendly staff, spectacular mountain vistas and pampering yourself and your dog(s), Barkwells will not disappoint!
