There are many hotels offering pet friendly accommodations and packages these days, and they can be great for a road trip or weekend getaway! But some hotels charge extra fees or have weight or breed restrictions. And for longer stays, it’s often more affordable and comfortable to stay in a vacation rental home or condo. VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner) is a travel site for vacation rentals, and they’ve put together this handy comparison showing the many Advantages of Vacation Rentals.
25,000+ properties on VRBO are dog-friendly. Just look for the purple paw print icon when searching the listings. They make it easy to contact the owner for more information before you book, so you can make sure that the rental is the right fit for you and your family members, furry and otherwise! Many pet friendly rental owners will even give advice about places to go and things to do near your vacation rental. I found this link very helpful for starting a filtered search to show only those VRBO vacation rentals that are pet friendly.
FlipKey is another vacation rental site and is run by the folks who bring us TripAdvisor. Their blog often has posts that are helpful for finding pet friendly rentals, such as Top 10 Dog-Friendly New England Vacation Rentals. And they also make it easy to search for pet friendly rentals. Just start any search at FlipKey and then click the Pet Friendly filter on the left side of the results.
