On route Chicago to Seattle, on a great road trip adventure, the only confirmed booking we had was for Dog Bark Park, after being alerted to its existence through a friend who had read Dave Gorman's "America Unchained" book. Me being British and my wife coming from the US east coast, this was our first trip out west and we wanted to meet real people and boy did we! Dennis and Frances are two of the nicest people we have ever met who spent time visiting with us, giving us advice on our travels and talking about a whole host of other things. The room inside "Sweet Willy" was comfortable and clean with so many nice touches including locally home-made produce for us to try. A real novelty and something we will never forget. If your travels take you past Cottonwood, Idaho...don't miss this. No matter if your 8 to 80 and anywhere either side.
