My husband and I took advantage of the "Winter Getaway" deal offered by Best Friends. We stayed 3 nights in a cabin and volunteered at BF for 2 days. For $60 a night, plus all of the freebies, this was a great deal. However, keep in mind this is a studio cabin. If you are not slim or have a larger dog (or 2) with you, you might find this extremely cramped. Also, in the winter months when you spend so much time indoors and a meal out in town only takes an hour, you may start to feel stir crazy.
The bed is a queen bed and did not offer much support; my husband and I did not sleep particularly well. But that might have also been because of the large electric heater noise. We blasted it the 3rd night and then turned it off, which seemed to help us sleep better.
After meeting a few local volunteers who had stayed in the cottages, we decided that next time we'll stay in a cottage if available, or do a VRBO, instead of staying in a cabin again.
Overall, we were happy to stay there, but will look into other options the next time around.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Best Friends Animal Sanctuary has become the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals. Nestled in gorgeous Angel Canyon, it’s a sight to behold — and a place of compassion unlike anywhere else on earth. On any given day, around 1,700 dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and more call Best Friends their home-between-homes. Here, they’re given love, medical care and the chance to be adopted. Cottages: Shaded by the red cliffs of Angel Canyon, near the Best Friends Welcome Center, are eight guest cottages. Accommodating up to six people, each cottage has one bedroom containing two full-size beds, sitting room with sleeper sofa, kitchen, 3/4 bath (shower stall), and a balcony with a view of the horse pastures. Cabins: A smaller alternative to the cottages, the cabins accommodate one to two guests and are also conveniently located on Sanctuary property. Each has a studio setup with one queen-size bed, kitchenette and 3/4 bath (shower stall). RV Site: Two fully-equipped RV sites offer a spectacular view. Both are complete with 50-amp electricity, water, septic tank, 35' concrete platforms, and an unobstructed sight line for satellite TV. There are no length limitations; however, the sites are not pull-through, so you must be able to back your RV into or out of the site. These sites do not have shower or restroom facilities. ... more less
