doggone vermont

cici and I would enjoy visiting Ben & Jerry’s in Burlington, Vermont some time. They allow dogs in the work place and are nice to cows and other animals. Our kind of place. There are certainly a few places in Vermont to visit that are pet friendly. Stowe and Burlington are supposed to be the top pet friendly cities in Vermont.

Here are a bunch of pet friendly venues… unrated since we have not visited there yet.

Below is one resort that allows dogs in Stowe but we think that the pet fee is exorbitant, $50 a day per dog.  Another example of a place that says that they are pet friendly but are they ? What is the rationalization here?  Bring your dog but you are going to have to pay pay pay??? Does not seem very pet friendly to us. Just saying…

Sleeping Dog

Stowe Mountain Lodge… pet policy is as follows: $50 per day per stay. The dog must be under 100 pounds and the cannot be left unattended (the Alpine Concierge can assist in arranging a dog sitter if needed).  Pets are not allowed in the restaurant or the bar.  Waiver must be signed upon check-in.

Dogs receive:

  • A plush dog bed
  • Vermont-inspired food and waterbowl
  • A paw print mint ball toy to play with and freshen their breath
  • A bag of assorted all natural flavor treats wrapped in a paw print bag
  • A lavendar fresh spritz spray to freshen up after a hard afternoon of playing

Here’s an inn that charges $20 pet fee, much more reasonable although some of the requirements for pets seem somewhat strict.

there is a doggie chapel… yippeee…

Stephen Huneck’s Dog Chapel in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, will be an answer to your dogs prayers when she discovers the nature trails, swimming ponds and other delights of the 400 scenic acres that surround the chapel on Dog Mountain.

there is a dog park and several places to watch dogs go sledding, mush mush mush… is this good, safe for dogs?

there is a winery and they also make maple syrup, is it pet friendly?  don’t know, since it is winter there now and no one answered the phone.

  1. It sounds like actually allowing pets is a great way to make extra money… but you are right, there is a difference between “pets allowed” and “Pet friendly.” We would love to visit Ben And Jerry’s! Do they give out free samples??? 😀

  2. Vermont is one of the most dog-friendly states in New England. When mentioning lodging, you have to include the Paw House Inn ( as they cater to dogs and let humans stay too! Dog Mountain is a truly magical place that every dog person should visit. We have other listings at
