A short distance from downtown Philadelphia, The Chestnut Hill Hotel has a neighborhood feel that can be relaxing to pets after a big day in the big city. The hotel welcomes dogs of all breeds and sizes with treats and is so pet friendly you might see Barley, the owners’ Newfoundland and hotel mascot, lounging around the property. If you’d like to book the Chestnut Hill Hotel, “Barley on Pets Welcome Here” and our travel agent will take 10% off your stay.

If the mountains are calling and you must go, escape to amazingly pet friendly Lake Placid in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. Your Great Outdoors adventure includes hiking with your furry best friend on a variety of scenic trails from lakeside to scenic fields to mountain climbs for more experienced hikers. Everyone can enjoy the John Brown Farm Historic Site where your fur kid can romp and play in lush green fields, swim in the pond and hike with you on 5 different trails that start at the farm. One of the greatest road trips for you and your dog is the drive to the summit of White Face Mountain on the Whiteface Veterans’ Memorial Highway. It’s the fifth highest peak in NY state and has viewing areas along the way that span hundreds of miles of wild land reaching as far as Vermont and Canada.

Surprisingly, Lake Placid’s Main Street is located not on Lake Placid, but on the shores of Mirror Lake, a large, crystal clear lake with a public beach and dog swimming area so your pup can do the dog paddle and splash around. Canoeing, kayaking and Paddle Boarding are available and experienced pets are welcome on board to enjoy the ride. Your Lake Placid escape wouldn’t be complete without a shopping spree on dog friendly Main Street. Sidewalk water bowls and treats are everywhere, and almost all welcome leashed pets inside, including Emma’s Lake Placid Creamery that serves home-made ice cream for you and your pet. Chow Hounds are sure to love the dozens of pet friendly restaurants, and evenings, you and your pet can have a howling good time at one of the local watering holes that welcome pets with bowls of fresh, vintage water.

At the end of a fabulous day, you and your fur kid can rest your heads in one of the many pet friendly hotels, motels and bed ’n breakfasts, including Hotel North Woods, an all-suite hotel on Main Street. This iconic hotel wrote the book on pet friendly. In fact, in addition to their signature custom pet beds, pet dining stations and homemade Nutty Maple Bacon Dog Treats, complimentary in every room, their Outward Hound program provides guests with a guide book to pet friendly locations and hikes in and around Lake Placid.
