The Paw House Inn was not what I expected. Location is great for skiing and outdoor activities but the theme of a "pet friendly hotel" is not even close. Yes you can bring your dog inside, but only when you are there. The dog must stay in "Mario's Playhouse" while you are out. This is not a playhouse by any means. This is a kennel with cement floors and not even a bowl for food or water. When they say, "bring your dogs favorite toys and supplies", they mean it. There is no water bowl, food bowl, blanket, bed, or toys for the dogs to play with. They do however, provide a cold cement floor and metal cage for the dogs to stay in.
The owner is very friendly, and the rooms are clean but not "dogged out" by any means. The idea is great but the owners could have really done more to make this more then just a motel you can bring your dog to. More decoration and special treats and bedding for dogs would have been nice.
The breakfast however was very good. Homemade waffles with fruit, coffee and juice. The owner was very helpful with recommendations as well.
I just wish that my dog could have had a better time!
Unique Quality: There was a fenced in agility course that the dogs can use. This was a fun place to hang out with your dogs before you start the day. This was not state of the art by any means but some basic agility equipment for some fun with the pup.
Directions: Off the beaten path for sure! This is close to Killington Ski area, but not part of the ski town. Literally in a housing neighborhood.
