Dog lovers will go to great lengths to accommodate their pets on vacation. The Paw House Inn in West Rutland, Vt., knows this and has a formula down pat: pamper the pets and their owners will come.
The inn has been so successful that it is expanding: the Paw House Inn and Resort at Mount Snow in West Dover, Vt., opens Labor Day weekend. Everything about the Paw House is dog-centric: "tail-proofed" rooms, a fenced dog park, an agility course, a doggie daycare facility, an indoor playground for colder months, trainers, groomers, dog massage therapists, and a custom-built dog bed in every room. There's even a restaurant (for humans) called Fetch.
Nightly rates for two dogs and two humans are $185-$295, including breakfast. Due to the inn's insurance restrictions, children under 10 are generally not allowed, and dogs must be current on vaccinations.
