Visitors to one bed and breakfast in rural Idaho are actually hoping to get a rough night's sleep — or rather, a ruff night's sleep.

Dog Bark Park Inn B&B in Cottonwood, Idaho isn't just dog-friendly: It's actually shaped like an enormous beagle.

Two-bedroom - Sleeps - Guests - Building - Nines

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom rental sleeps four guests in a two-floor dog-shaped building, which is decorated to the nines (or shall we say canines?) with doggy decor.

The Dog Bark Park Inn has been open since 2003 and is a landmark in the state — but it's now getting even more attention thanks to online listings, including one on Airbnb.

Husband - Wife - Duo - Frances - Dennis

It's owned by husband and wife duo Frances and Dennis — and their golden retriever Sprocket — who are also chainsaw artists specializing in dog carvings.

But it's the biggest 'carving' of all, their $132/night hotel, which is really awe-inspiring.

'Stay - Dog - Airbnb - Listing - Reads

'Stay in a giant dog!' their Airbnb listing reads. 'That's right, it's a beagle-shaped one-unit inn where being in this doghouse is a GOOD thing and comfortable to boot!'

Inside the beagle-shaped lodgings are plenty of doggy accents like throw pillows, games, puzzles, and the wooden dog carvings the couple makes.

Beagles - Breeds - Poses - Customer - Photos

They don't just make beagles, either. They created over 60 different breeds and poses, and will use customer photos to create special carvings, too.

The carvings can be purchased at the gift shop, which is also open to the public as part of the Dog Bark Park visitor center and artist studio that have been open since 1997.

Dog - Bark - Park - Inn - Views

Dog Bark Park Inn also offers views of prairie grain fields and the surrounding mountains, and is near **** Canyon Gorge.

Unfortunately for puppy lovers who are eager to plan a trip, the inn is only in season from April through October, and is already compltely booked up for 2019.

Reservations - April

The next open reservations begin in April 2020.
