For real, it's a bed and breakfast shaped like a dog!

Hang out on Sweet Willy's deck and watch the sun set on the prairie.

Be right back ... making our reservations!

It all started when Idaho chainsaw artists (yup, you heard that right) Dennis and Frances decided they wanted to create one of the most unique bed-and-breakfast hotels ever, in the tradition of retro roadside architecture. Built in 2002 and opened in 2003, Sweet Willy -- as the giant Beagle-shaped domicile has come to be called -- can sleep up to four people at a time and is typically rented to a single party. There is also an adjoining gift shop and artist studio, where visitors can take home some of Dennis' and Frances' incredible and unique art.

You can take a piece of the Dog Bark Park Inn home!

Sweet Willy's interior is equally dog-themed, with carved dogs adorning the queen bed's headboard, and there's a loft inside Willy's head. While there are no resort-style perks, guests are treated to enthralling prairie views from Willy's deck, and can explore nearby educational attractions during the day. And, of course, breakfast is included!

Can we order one of these for our own at home?

So if you're planning a cross-country road trip this summer, make sure to book a reservation at Dog Bark Park Inn Bed & Breakfast to "experience the dog."

Have you had the privilege of staying here? We want to see photos!
