Fido’s very own fairytale awaits him at Asheville’s Luxury Treehouse. Deep in the forest, you and your dog will discover a miniature castle in the trees with a cupola roof and an expansive deck where you can watch the sunrise each morning. Step inside the whimsical home and be greeted by gorgeous branches that twist and turn throughout the interior, gleaming hardwood floors and a fully equipped kitchen to whip up your Golendoodle’s porridge. Guests are invited to take a peaceful stroll into the woods and down the hill to the little creek for relaxation. This unique property above the ground is only a few minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, one of the East Coast’s most dog-friendly national parks, and the eclectic shops of downtown Asheville.

Asheville’s Luxury Treehouse allows dogs with prior approval and a pet fee of $75 per stay.

Located in California’s Wine Country, Casa Martin is an ideal base for people who want to sample pinot with a pup. Dinner is always a dream at this vibey VRBO, which features a gourmet kitchen where guests can whip up a delightful pairing before enjoying it at one of the shady spots outdoors. Afterward, visitors can go for a dip in the pool, soak in the hot tub or relax in the spacious living area with a cozy fireplace. There’s no need to assign a designated driver to explore the region. Stay close to home and visit Ragle Ranch Regional Park, a pet-friendly recreation space within walking distance that boasts trails and a fenced dog park. Then, wander to one of Sebastopol’s wineries that welcome pups.

Casa Martin allows dogs for no additional fee.

Waterfront Getaway

Outbound hounds can experience life on the river at this incredible waterfront getaway. During the day, water lovers on two legs and four have private dock privileges where they can fish, practice leaping into the water, or set off on a river tour in the kayak or on the paddleboard provided. When the sun sets, start a fire in the pit and watch it crackle from the hot tub while your pooch lounges under the veranda. Then, head inside to the games room or wind down next to the roaring fireplace. Pups who prefer to keep their paws dry can burn off steam during the day at nearby Red Fern Dog Park instead.

This waterfront getaway allows dogs for $75 per stay.

Sum Fun really lives up to its name, especially if you’re a canine guest. This cozy cabin with epic mountain views features two enclosed areas with hydrants, a fenced yard and a dog rock garden, where guests can leave a piece of rock art devoted to their beloved best friend. There’s even more to make your mutt’s weekend away one to remember, including a dog bed, a miniature hammock just for her, bowls to use during her stay and linens to cover furniture if she wants to join you on the couch. Hiking Huskies can lead the way on the Benton MacKaye Trail right from the cabin. Beyond the fire hydrants in the backyard, your pooch can leave her mark when you submit a photo of her for Sum Fun’s digital dog frame.

Sum Fun allows three dogs of any size for an additional fee of $80 per stay.

For a unique VRBO in The Evergreen State, book a stay at Bryant Barn. Decorated with original art and boasting a dining table that seats 12 next to a stunning fireplace, this gorgeous light-filled home would make a great setting for Fido’s next family retreat. This barn is designed with community in mind thanks to the open-plan living area and inviting pool just outside. When he’s had enough of a certain cousin, your dog can escape with you to the welcoming wine barrel that has been converted into a separate bedroom outside. With an acre of grass next to the house, energetic pups have plenty of room to move through the gears during a game of fetch. Or, go for a shady afternoon walk together at Pioneer Park.

Bryant Barn allows dogs for a small fee.

Ocean Pups is an awesome pet-friendly beach house designed with dogs in mind. The owner honors his beloved companions, Natogi and Wilson, with regal canine statues outside and makes sure your pooch has plenty of room to roam on the lawn in the huge fenced backyard. Inside, tile floors make for easy cleanup and offer a cool place to sprawl on hot days. If it’s your turn to plan a doggy date night, treat your Terrier to swag from Faux Paws, then go for dinner together at one of the pet-friendly restaurants at Barefoot Landing, a short drive from the house. You and your pooch can get around the community with ease in a golf cart rental from your host, too.

Ocean Pups welcomes dogs for no additional fee.

From the art on the walls to the laid-back vibes inside and out, Casa De Miguel is Austin through and through. While the rest of the pack sips cocktails at the bar, designated vacation chefs can make magic in the kitchen using the stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, and musical guests can grab the guitar off the wall and pluck for the pups. Outside, there’s room for dogs to explore the backyard’s courtyards, relax on the screened-in porch and join you next to the fire table at night. Located near Zilker Botanical Garden and more pet-friendly Austin highlights, there’s something for pups of all tastes nearby.

Casa De Miguel allows dogs for $20 per pet, per night.

A Beautiful Place is as pretty as a pooch portrait. Overlooking Keuka Lake, this classic log cabin sits on six acres of land which includes a fenced space and a huge lawn beyond it for dogs with good recall to sprint around. Inside, hardwood floors and tile make it easy to clean up, high ceilings and an open-plan living area keep it comfortable for all guests, and big windows offer a glimpse into the gorgeous surroundings. Leashed pups are invited to explore the trails at Keuka Lake State Park and go for a dip in the water afterward.

The Shady Shack is a delightful nautical-themed cottage that rolls out the red carpet for road tripping Retrievers touring the Gulf Coast. The shade in the name refers to the ample trees on this wooded lot that will provide respite from the sun on your dog’s morning walks with views of the bay. Pups who prefer to play off leash can sniff around the fenced backyard, before joining you on the screened porch for brunch. The simple interior has tile floor throughout and everything you need for a comfortable stay. For a historic day trip, take a drive along the coast to Fort Morgan State Historic Site.

The Shady Shack allows two dogs to stay for a small fee.
