Several hotels have uniquely shaped buildings, one of which is The Dog Bark Park Inn in Cottonwood, rural Idaho, USA. The expansive view of the prairie wheat fields and the surrounding mountains looks specific at any time of year. From the second floor deck on a clear night, the starry sky garden is just as impressive. From the name alone, it is known that this hotel is a giant Beagle.
The owner is a woodworker founded by a married couple, Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin. This dog-shaped hotel is 4 meters high and is the largest beagle-shaped building ever built. The hotel is of course friendly to guests who bring pets.
Dog Bark Park Inn is a bed & breakfast inn within the World's Largest Beagle. Guests enter the body of a hunting dog from a private 2nd floor deck. Some of the dog's decorative furnishings are carvings by chainsaw artists Dog Bark Park, Dennis & Frances. Inside and above another level to the dog's head is a loft space with additional sleeping space plus a comfortable alcove at the muzzle.
At Dog Bark Park, they specialize in creating wooden dog carvings in the folk art style. Dennis and Frances create more than 60 different dog breeds and poses and often work from customer photos to create carvings similar to their best friend's dog.
