Vacationing with Fido

Door County can be a wonderful spot to vacation with your dog. Although not every park restaurant or shop is dog friendly many are happy to make accommodations for our furry well behaved family members.  At the Beachfront Inn we are no exception.  Our entire first floor is dog friendly.  Well behaved dogs are free to play off leash and enjoy the water on our beautiful sand beach but we ask that all dogs are kept on leashes once off the beach.  Below is a list of some of the local dog friendly locations.  We are always happy to assist you in your planing.  Let us help you discover a pet friendly Door County call or email with any questions you may have.
