To be entirely honest, I'm writing this post listening to Doris Day on Spotify.

And you know why? Because Doris Day co-owns the hotel Sunset Magazine called “probably the most famous dog-friendly hotel in the country.” She's also 95—and looks great—which adds to my whole-hearted belief in the health benefits of spending time with dogs.

Anyway, today I'm dreaming a little dream (okay, I'll stop) of a pup-friendly escape to Cypress Inn in California's Carmel-by-the-Sea

Here's why we're dying to visit:

  1. The inn has been open since 1929 and looks totally old-world glam.
  2.  Pet fees are $30 a night for your first pet, but $50 for two pets, or $70 for three.
  3. The inn provides poop bags and a wash-off station for your dog after the beach.
  4. Dogs are allowed to eat with their humans inside or on the patio.
  5. The hotel provides a pet blanket for visiting dogs.
  6. The front desk keeps a list of approved dog sitters, in case you need to go out without your dog.

We're definitely bookmarking this one for future travel. But que sera sera, right?

Have you visited the Cypress Inn? What did you think? Where else are you planning pup-friendly travel?
