No doubt that the wide-open spaces have brought you to Bend, and there’s no debate that Oregon’s wilderness is best explored with your loyal companion by your side. From rides along the Deschutes River to beer tasting on pet-friendly patios, Bend has plenty for every species to savor. Your dog may not mind ruff-ing it under the stars, but we have a feeling you’ll both appreciate the creature comforts at these pet-friendly hotels in Bend.
You and your hound can venture into the wilderness on a whim from LOGE. Step out of your room, and you’re already on the trail system, getting the most out of your loaner leash and harness. Make it back to the hotel early enough to rest your paws on the lawn while outdoor movies, concerts and other events keep you entertained. Swing on back to the hammock come afternoon and let Rufus run through the grassy lawn while you rustle up some ribs on the barbeque grill.
Bringing your best bud to Bend? The Oxford Hotel wants to show you how dog-friendly downtown can be. Treats, trail maps, travel bowls, a bed and loaner leashes are handed to you the moment you check in. You can rent a free cruiser and have Fido follow beside you as you scope out downtown. Looking for a little solo time in the sauna, spa or steam room? The Oxford Hotel can arrange dog-walking services for you, too.
There are seven off-leash dog parks in Bend – and Riverhouse on the Deschutes will put you on the road to every one of them. This riverfront lodge-style hotel welcomes your four-legged friend with open arms and a treat at check-in. Unpack and unwind with your pup, splitting a meat and cheese board brought up by room service. The sounds of the water calmly flowing downstream will convince you and your dog to start and end each day on your suite’s patio.
Sit! Stay! Lie down! It’s not your dog you have to worry about obeying you at Tetherow Hotel, but your golf ball. Designed by the same architect who crafted Bandon Dunes, the rolling green hills and sand traps of this par-72 course offer amazing views that make it worth the extra chip shot from the bunker. Though your golden retriever can’t be your caddy, you can still celebrate together with homemade dog treats and a hike (or mountain bike) on the C.O.D. Trail.
King-size beds, gas fireplaces and Keurig coffee makers in every room may not wow Rover, but he’ll certainly appreciate the view of the Deschutes River from the balconies of Pine Ridge Inn. This luxurious hotel on the west side of Bend’s bendy river is within walking distance to the Deschutes River Trail. When the pair of you aren’t riverside, grab your gratis glass of wine or beer at the hotel, and let the staff point you to Cascade Lakes Brewpub or another great pet-friendly patio in the area.
Where better in Bend to hang around the campfire than the Campfire Hotel? Pup-friendly rooms are just as cozy as the outdoor fire pits, where your dog will surely get his fair share of belly rubs from new friends and maybe even meet a single sheepdog across the flames. Grab a cup of free local coffee in the lobby, then trot on over to Pilot Butte Neighborhood to walk the short but sweet Larkspur Trail, so Spot and his new friend can run wild and free.
The Historic Lucas House is a perfect pet-friendly way to introduce your dog to Bend. Your furry friend will love the smells coming off the three food trucks in the Yard almost as much as you’ll love the beer. Once you’ve gotten to know the other dog owners bunking with you, head down to Bend Park along the Deschutes River for a ramble. If you’re game, hop on a Bunk & Brew pub crawl, and your pooch can be the group’s designated doggy.
