No bones about it, this place is dog friendly

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.
