My husband and I brought our very active -- but very well-behaved -- dog with us to Wallowa Lake Resort. It was $10 extra per night to have him with us, but it was worth it. The cabin we stayed in was clean and convenient, and the perfect size for two people plus a dog. The staff gives each dog a care package with treats, poop bags, and a sheet to toss on the couch or bed, if the dog's allowed on the furniture.
Our cabin had a fully stocked kitchen, with dishes, cups, silverware, cooking utensils, a decent set of knives, stove, oven, microwave, coffee maker ... and on and on. The only thing we needed to buy was a set of tongs. And, of course, our own food. Wi-fi was available at the resort office, but cell phone reception was non-existent for our Sprint phones (and my Kindle!). It is a "resort," so there are restaurants, a pizza joint, horse rides, and similar activities in walking distance.
There was a trailhead two miles up the road that led to several hikes of varying lengths and beautiful scenery. The town of Joseph was five miles away, and had everything we needed, including brew pubs and an outdoors store where I bought hiking boots.
The proprietors were sweet, helpful, and on top of everything. I'm hoping we can do this every year.
