Waking up to a staring animal is commonplace for dog owners, but at the Lavender Suite at Nicura Ranch in Berea, guests wake up to goats gazing through a barn window. The suite built directly into the barn at the most unique dog-friendly Airbnb in The Bluegrass State includes a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. Get away from the goats outside, hop in a pedalo and paddle with your pooch around a pretty pond. Or, hang out on the grass patio with views of the front pasture. Traveling with a horse, too? The stables and pasture are free for visiting horses to use.

Turn the key and say hello to hardwood floors, a kitchen with an oven, a full bathroom, and twin single beds at Kentucky’s best dog-friendly RV/camper Airbnb rental. Leave the door open and let Fido wander around the fenced backyard. If he gets muddy paws, clean them off in the outdoor shower and let him dry off in front of the fire pit.

Fido can hang out like Tarzan at Treehouse Aliyah in Germantown. Kentucky’s best dog-friendly Airbnb treehouse has a giant red oak in the living room next to a bright red couch and a hammock chair, so everybody can forest bathe comfortably without leaving the room. If you do want to venture out, hop on the trail at the bottom of the stairs and explore 285 acres of private land with your pooch. When it’s time for bed, head to the master bedroom in the loft and send extra members of the pack across the swinging bridge to the snuggle palace bedroom in the neighboring treehouse.

Your dog is going to dig this lakefront chalet on the Dix River in Harrodsburg. Whether she’s rolling in the grass or joining you for a walk down the staircase to the water, she won’t stop wagging during her stay at Kentucky’s best dog-friendly waterfront Airbnb. Bring your own boat and tie it up to the dock outside, rent your host’s boat parked at a local marina, or take the house kayaks out on the water instead. If you prefer looking at the water rather than floating on it, enjoy breakfast on the balcony with a view.

Many distilleries along Kentucky’s famous Bourbon Trail welcome leashed dogs to explore their grounds, but there aren't many where you can stay with your dog.
