View Full Version : Dog-friendly lodging?

11-29-2009, 10:03 PM
I figure I better start looking now. I will be coming U.P this season to chase snow, per usual. What is different is that I have 2 additional guests coming with. My wife and I and my 2 dogs.
To make this search even more difficult, I have specific areas I like to stay in. They are: Iron county, Houghton/Hancock, Porcupine mtn. area, and the Keweenaw peninsula area. Any leads/suggestions much appreciated.

Kennel them. I have 2 dogs of my own. You are not doing them any favors putting them in a strange motel room all day. Look at it this way. If they decide to eat the mattress, couch or carpet you will spend way more than the kennel. You don't make friends if they bark all day either. Tried that route.

When I go to Iron County in Wis, I always bring my dogs to Great Northern in Mercer. Rooms are big and they are always great to us. Days INN in Hurley is also pet friendly to, just havent stayed there in awhile. When I go to Calumet mi, just north of Houghton...I use Americ Inn. Great with pets to. Both are pretty reasonable with prices to bring pets.

Nice. I should have included in my first post that my wife just comes along to get away. She stays behind while I play. These are great suggestion. Let's up the anty, how bout something non-motel, like a rental property?

We use Krupps. We have a golden and he's very layed back. Sandy and Rich are great!! Plus they do a great deal for snowmobiling in that area. Jake

Try Peppermill Lodging. With your rental come access to a fully heated and tooled shop free of charge. I know others have kept their dogs in Darrell's shop during the day. They are located in Rockland.

We have a very well behaved Newfoundland.

We have stayed with her at North Gate Hotel in Calumet, Krupps in Twin Lakes and the Timber's in Bergland (Lake Gogebic).

Good luck.

Try this place. They have a resident golden that comes over everyday and hangs out at the cabin. The place is awesome. Sauna in the basement that has heated floors, 600 feet from the trail. http://www.thelogcabinn.com/index.html
