5 Pet-Friendly Destinations For End-Of-Summer Getaways

Check out–and then check in–to some of these pet-friendly places that are still taking reservations for your end-of-summer hurrah!


If you’re like me, you want to squeeze every last bit of summer that you can! I’m not trading my umbrella drinks for pumpkin spice a second before I have to, and we’re trying to get last vacations in before the routine of fall and the holidays come into play. So, if you’re on that same search, here are some of our favorite pet-friendly places to get away!


1. Dog Gone It


Tucked away in West Fort Lauderdale is this luxury beach getaway… complete with the Dog Gone It Pet Suite. This is a great place to do so as pets will check-in and receive their own doggie bandanas, food and water bowls and a doggie bed in-room to listen to the ocean breezes in comfort. The beaches of Fort Lauderdale are canine-friendly, and there is a Tinkle Turf Pad inside the suite in case they just can’t make it outside! Guests will find a Bark Box full of goodies just for your pup to enjoy. The resort has a pet menu just for the furry family members, and their humans will enjoy the fine dining from local gourmet restaurants. There is no pet-deposit for the suite, and clean-up fee is waived, so it’s the perfect place to get away for some special time with your pup!

2. Perry Hotel Key West


Are you and your dog more the adventurous type? Well, you’ll probably want to check out the Perry Hotel Key West at Stock Island Marina, then. You and your pooch can take a Key West Adventure through local tour company Lazy Dog Adventures. You and your pup can go kayaking and on SUP excursions through mangroves and crystal water, and then when the adventures of the day are done, you can hang out by the pool or stroll through the parks. Guests can use the Dog Days of Summer offer to get credits as well as cleaning fee discounts! If you’ve never seen the sunset in Key West, you’re missing out!

3. Marriott Stanton South Beach


Is your pup an ocean lover? All the coolest pets love South Beach, and the Marriott Stanton South Beach offers direct beach access. It’s one of the few pet-friendly hotels in South Beach and UK designer Martin Brudnizki designed it with furry family members in mind. Check out the artwork that shows the love of dogs the hotel has, and enjoy the adjacent park for puppy play time.

4. Barnsley Resort


Want a getaway that is in the woods, but has the amenities and luxury of a resort? Check out the Barnsley Resort in North Georgia. Pets of all ages and sizes are welcome and there are tons of trails and hikes that you and your pet will love exploring. Pets get pet beds, bowls, bottled water and treats, and just in case the humans want some alone time (as if!), there are Pet Sitting services as well. We love that the resort is a partner with PAWS Atlanta and donates to PAWS to help orphaned animals waiting for their furever homes. So, take your pup to escape, and you’ll be able to enjoy Yappy Hour with some pet-friendly treats and ice cream! You’ll be able to enjoy some wine and cheese and the whole family will feel comfy cozy!

5. Lido Beach Resort


This pet-friendly resort on the barrier island of Lido Key near Sarasota Florida offers pets and their humans lots of waterfront nature walks, ocean views, and gorgeous gulf-coast sunsets. You’ll love the 223 newly renovated rooms and your pooch will love the ocean breeze flowing through his fur!
