Head off on hikes with your hound through the lake-laced Pocono Mountains region, then return to one of these dog-pleasing resorts and paw-approved places to stay – bookable on Culture Trip.

Where better in Penn’s Woods to bring your dog than the Pocono Mountains? Miles of trails lead to forests, lakes and valleys with plenty of fascinating scents for your dog to sniff out. The skiing, shopping and dining around this eastern Pennsylvania region are sure to send you venturing down a few new paths, too. Whether you’re looking to trial a new trail with Spot or take Rover to a resort, these pet-friendly hotels in the Poconos are worth rolling over for.

Close to the Mohegan Sun casino, the Woodlands hands you a royal flush with its on-site spa, salon, outdoor deck bar and state-of-the-art nightclub. There are at least a dozen groomers in the area where your dogs will feel as if they hit the jackpot, too. To score extra points with your pooch, drive up to Kingston Dog Park on the shores of the Susquehanna.

The simple life in the mountains you’ve craved is available for rent at Echo Valley Cottages. Rent Pond Cottage and spend every afternoon sitting on the deck, watching the fish jump from the water until nightfall, moving only to light the fire pit. If the bliss of waking up to do it all again the next day starts to fade, a 2mi (3km) drive down to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area will give you a change of scenery that’s just as serene.

Comfort Inn is ready to host you, your family, your cat and your dog during your time in the Poconos. Speaking of the animal kingdom, Claws ‘N’ Paws Wild Animal Park is within pouncing distance, if you feel like petting and feeding giraffes, deer, alpacas and more. Comfort Inn cannot accommodate those particular beasts, though, no matter how hard you try to convince staff that a Bengal tiger is just a large tabby cat.
