The hotel is classic in mid-century design and lighthearted ambiance and offers a full service spa, pool and cabanas, luxe lounge, and is a pet friendly spa destination.

Boon Hotel + Spa, Guerneville, California, It’s a safe bet when a host names a hotel after a beloved pet, that guests’ pets will be welcomed. Boon is the resident, frisbee-toting, always smiling, black-and-white four-legged “peach of a dog.” Boon Hotel + Spa is located in some of the most picturesque wine country in California, the Wine Road, Northern Sonoma County, which takes visitors on a sensually gratifying journey of natural beauty, tasting experiences and personal encounters with the state’s most devoted winemakers.

My personal top picks for Pet Friendly Resorts and also Spa Resorts is The Ritz Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, GA. Dogs love the water and boy do they have it there with Lake Oconee (Wake Oconee)! Also the Barnsley Gardens Resort and Spa offer excellent accommodations for pets as well as a soon to be announced Dog Massage from their spa!
