Pet Friendly Hotels for the Ultimate Family Vacation
What is a vacation without your pet? You spend the whole time worrying if he has enough food and water, if she is in the garbage again, or if they are just depressed and hiding in the dark. In any case, it can be a downer on the whole trip. But if you are traveling with dogs in the Green Mountain State, particularly southern Vermont, we have many dog friendly hotels for you and your best pals.
