Worlds Biggest Beagle Bed and BreakfastB&B Summary   2024 Update – B&B has closed.

Content here will be updated soon to discuss the giant beagle as an American roadside attraction. Visitors are welcome to take photos and, should we be in our carving studio/giftshop/visitor center, they are welcome to visit with us. We’re now partially retired. Being in the doghouse is a good thing at Dog Bark Park Inn Bed & Breakfast! Sleep inside the world’s biggest beagle with all the comforts of home. This bed & breakfast is a dog outside. Inside, it is a charming escape from the ordinary – from the twenty-six carved dogs on the queen headboard to a cozy loft room in the dog’s head, to dog-shaped cookies on the pillow. Breakfast includes home-baked pastries, Prairie’s Best Fruited Granola, fruit, cheeses, yogurts, bagels, and more!

Enjoy prairie views and starry nights from the second story deck. Play a game with your partner or the kids; snuggle up with a book from the inn’s extensive collection of reading materials, games and puzzles. During the day, take a jet boat tour into nearby Hell’s Canyon, visit a wolf center, learn about the Nez Perce Indian history & culture, go horseback riding, or explore around. Idaho’s famous ‘big dog’ is an unforgettable experience.
