— Dog Bark Park was recently ranked as the most unique bed and breakfast in Idaho by Hospitality Management Degrees. Owners, Frances Conklin and Dennis Sullivan, said they were honored and humbled by the honor. They are happy to bring widespread media exposure to Idaho as a travel destination to far-flung travelers, even international travelers.

The Dog Bark Park Inn is a delightfully wacky way to spend the night “in the doghouse.” The dog-shaped structure was built 20 years ago. The single, two-story room in this unique bed and breakfast can sleep four and has games, WiFi, and a minibar stocked with free gourmet snacks. The included breakfast features the owners’ signature homemade granola and fresh local foods. Carvings of every imaginable dog breed, made by the owners, are available for purchase, and, yes, well-behaved dogs are welcome. Check out the web site:
