Long Island is the best place to take your pets, especially, man’s best friend. There are parks that can accommodate them. With each passing year, it seems that more and more pet owners consider their furry little friends’ members of the family more than simply pets. When planning a vacation, it’s becoming quite common to consider bringing Fido along, and hotels are beginning to tune into these travelers’ needs. Whether your pup is an emotional support dog or just a member of the family along for the fun and adventure, Nassau County has you covered with a wide variety of accommodations that’ll fit any budget.
Orient Inn Bed & Breakfast
One of the best pet-friendly places to stay in Nassau County is the charming, cozy Orient Inn on the North Fork. The quaint rooms and comfortable atmosphere make you feel right at home, and the hosts will help you maximize your time on Long Island. Even better, the Inn is located just five minutes from one of the best public golf courses in the area, Island’s End Golf Club. Its signature hole, the tough par 3 16th, features a beautiful tee shot right along the Long Island Sound.
The Orient Inn provides an outstanding breakfast that you can enjoy out on the wraparound porch or in the gardens. Of course, there’s also a dining room option if the weather isn’t cooperating. There’s an adorable, calm house doggy who lives there full time and several pet-friendly room options for your furry tag-along.
Mill House Inn
You’ll feel comfortable immediately at this home-away-from-home, the Mill House Inn in East Hampton. Only ten minutes from the lovely Poxabogue Golf Course, the Mill House Inn is a destination all its own. It’s easy to start your day off right with an amazing breakfast featuring delicacies like a lobster frittata, house-roasted coffee and cookies you’ll want to stock up on for all-day eating. Locally-sourced, expertly-produced food and a friendly, inviting atmosphere along with comfortable, pet-friendly rooms make the Mill House Inn a place you’ll want to return to. They even offer in-room child-care for an additional fee, for parents who need a night out on the town or a day on the golf course.
Gansett Green Manor
Not far from the Mill House Inn, Gansett Green Manor bridges the gap between a quaint, friendly bed and breakfast and a hotel. It’s just a short walk to the oceanfront beaches of Amagansett, and right in the heart of the bustling village center. It’s laid back and comfortable, perfectly suited for a low-key, enjoy the Hamptons and get some rest type of getaway. Dogs are welcomed, even encouraged, which makes for a youthful clientele and a peaceful atmosphere.
Kenny’s Tipperary Inn
Kenny’s Tipperary Inn is right in the heart of Montauk Harbor, but with rooms available in the $100-200-a-night price range, it delivers incredible value on top of its prime location. It’s just a short hop to downtown Montauk, but far enough away to be a quiet, relaxing place to relax and leave the outside world to its own devices for a while. The legendary Mannucci’s restaurant is right next door, and the staff at Kenny’s will be happy to help you book the best activities like golf, horseback riding and fishing nearby.
Kenny’s Tipperary Inn tops it all off with lovely firepits and a charming pool to go with its pet-friendly rooms and ideal location, making it one of the best values on Long Island.
The Duncan Inn
The Duncan Inn in Jamesport offers spacious, clean, comfortable and pet-friendly rooms at a much lower price than you’d expect to find in such a premier location. The Duncan Inn offers a personal touch you won’t find at the big chains, like bistro tables outside each room that offer a great place for a quick coffee break, well-stocked mini-fridges at surprisingly reasonable prices, and a great breakfast that doesn’t skimp on the essentials.
The spectacular Cherry Creek Golf Course, with its legendary signature uphill, 644-yard par 6 (yes, you read that right!) 18th hole, is just ten minutes away from the Duncan Inn. Cap the night off with a cigar, swapping stories around the Duncan Inn’s delightful firepit and sipping wine from the Sherwood House Vineyards just down the road.
