“Do you know any pet-friendly hotels with an in-room hot tub where I can stay?” This is one of the most frequent requests from BringFido customers in the month of February. These rooms are perfect for a Valentine’s Day getaway but also year-round for a romantic couple’s retreat, wedding anniversary, honeymoon, or a self-indulgent solo trip with man’s best friend. However, dog-friendly options can be hard to find. We’ve pawed through the BringFido database to dig up the best pet-friendly hotels with jetted tubs, just in time to make those Valentine’s Day reservations!

The Provincetown Hotel at Gabriel’s

Located just one block from Provincetown Harbor, The Provincetown Hotel at Gabriel’s consists of four historic buildings around a lovely courtyard (which serves as the gathering spot for a made-to-order breakfast each morning).

Two pet-friendly rooms have jetted tubs. The Susan is located on the first floor and is outfitted with a king-size bed, gas fireplace, wet bar, dining table and spa-style bathroom.

Fido will love the complimentary organic dog treats, dog bowls and bed for use during his stay. There’s a park next door for convenient potty breaks, too.

The 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa

As the name implies, The 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa opened in the charming mountain and lake community of Lake Lure, North Carolina, in the late 1920s. If the hotel looks familiar, it’s because it was a filming location for the popular 80s movie “Dirty Dancing.” The romantic setting is an ideal spot to reconnect with your partner and pet. Book one of the pet-friendly “Jet Tub” rooms in the Inn’s main building, or for more privacy, one of the detached cabins that also boast private hot tubs. Dogs are welcome at The 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa for an additional fee of $25 per pet, per night. Nightly rates start at $209.

When you’re not enjoying the hot tub in your room at the hotel, rent a pet-friendly pontoon boat from Lake Lure Adventure Company for an idyllic sunset cruise with your pup.
