Residence Inn by Marriott, North Conway

Seeking a base camp for exploring Mount Washington Valley? Your pups are welcome at the Residence Inn by Marriott. You’ll breakfast for free in the lobby while your suite’s well-equipped kitchen has stacks of storage space for pet essentials. Bring a doggie vest in the summer, and extra blankets in winter so you can set off to explore the snow-covered hillsides of Wildcat Mountain, or the clear waters of the Lost River Gorge nearby.

Who says you can’t treat a D.O.G to a B&B? The Spruce Mountain Lodge and Cottages in North Conway is surrounded by serene foliage and enough hiking trails to exhaust even the most energetic canine. All the White Mountain cabins are pet-friendly, but for an extra treat book one of the Jacuzzi Bungalows; the in-room whirlpool tub and warming gas fire are the best places to relax when you return footsore (and paw-sore) from a long, invigorating walk.

Port Inn and Suites Portsmouth, Ascend Hotel Collection

Here’s a fine boutique hotel that’ll roll over for hounds in historic New Hampshire. Port Inn and Suites Portsmouth is as pet-friendly as it comes, as it’s geared towards business travelers. Expect a desk station, the usual business-center amenities, and an on-site dog walking area: your doted-upon darling can get their business done while you’re engaged in yours. When the workday is over, step out for a fruity Oregon Pinot Noir with oysters at Martingale Wharf by the harbour.

Red Jacket Mountain View Resort

Red Jacket Mountain View Resort, with its indoor water park, is a family retreat in the White Mountains, where waterfalls cascade over rocks. When they say family, they mean four-legged members as well. A dog-friendly room is available for up to two good boys (or girls) – and they’ll settle right in with bowls, beds, blankets, treats, and cleanup bags. Not only will your dogs enjoy their own amenities inside, but the hiking trails outside will provide them with lots of scent-sniffing exploration fun.

Why forgo the creature comforts of home when traveling? At Great Island Inn you’ll enjoy apartment-style living that feels cozy and familiar – familiar that is, if your home was built in the 1820s on beautiful New Castle island. If you’re interested in finding the best cafés in town or the park with the best sticks for playing fetch, then this hotel’s clued-up, personalized concierge service is at the ready to point you in the direction of the finest spaces to run free.

Holiday Inn Express and Suites Manchester Airport

The good news: this place has dog-friendly rooms with two queen beds, as well as a dedicated pet-walking area on-site. More good news: the Manchester area has so much to do you’ll have to book a return trip to see it all. The Riverwalk area downtown has cafés and restaurants with lots of outdoor seating – or if you want to stay closer to home hit the South Manchester Trail by Willow Street for a little exercise, then mooch around the local shops with your pooch.

Top Notch Inn

While most hotels have dog-friendly rooms, Top Notch Inn deserves its name for inviting any well-behaved domestic animal to stay with you (within reason – no pythons). Dogs, cats, goldfish, and small caged pets are welcome here to enjoy the mountain views from your suite. If you and your pet friends don’t spot a majestic moose while exploring the nearby Great North Woods be sure to grab a selfie with the lifesize specimen at the inn’s entrance.
