Cottonwood B & B gets recognition from world's largest travel site

Cottonwood, Idaho's Dog Bark Park Inn was included in a list of TripAdvisor's 10 Quirkiest U.S. Accommodations.

Husband and wife owners, Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin, built the business from the ground up. Dennis said he designed and built the giant beagle because he wanted a project  that he could take time on and enjoy the full process of building. Dennis and Frances specialize in chainsaw art and can carve over 100 breeds of dogs.

“We don't think of us as providing customer service, we are visiting with visitors at our place,” Dennis said.
