This incredible home is smack dab in the middle of the Mojave desert, and a short drive away from Joshua Tree National Park (a perfect place to explore alongside your pup). Designed by the architects at Inverse Project, the two-bedroom house has a spacious multi-level outdoor terrace with an outdoor hot tub, grill, and chimenea, making it the ideal spot to relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and star-soaked night sky.
What guests say: "What a beautiful property! The perfect way to immerse in the magic of the desert & deeply relax. Whether outside on the deck or in the AMAZING hot tub, or cosy inside through the big windows, you always get to feel your surroundings and watch the sunrise/sunset. Kitchen is super stocked too which makes cooking so easy. My dog loved being there & we spend the days hiking straight off the deck which was so convenient."

Two hours north of New York City, nestled among ski mountains, this renovated 1845 barn house is filled with warm, stylish, and comfortable design features that make it an incredible place to relax. The house is surrounded by beautiful trees, and the green is echoed indoors by an array of house plants. In nice weather, you can sit on the porch under string lights, or around the outdoor fireplace. A wood stove keeps things cozy indoors during the colder months, and an outdoor hot tub is good for any season. Your dog might not enjoy the hot tub, but they're welcome in the house too—just be sure to send your hosts a message if you want to bring your pup along.
What guests say: "This space was hands down perfection. 10 min ride to hunter mountain, hot tub, outdoor and indoor fire places, so many cozy spaces to hangout at, large group dining table, and stunning decor. Truly can’t beat it! [...] It was the perfect size for 7 of us, and the yard was amazingly spaced out from others. DOG FRIENDLY which is just so great and makes the trip that much better with your fur friend. I can’t say enough good things!"

While a stay in this off-grid cabin is a step above camping, it definitely still falls into the category of "roughing it." But if you don't mind the bunk beds, composting toilet, and lack of running water (though water will be provided by the host), you'll be awarded with absolutely stunning views and absolute solitude. The cabin (which one reviewer called "a dog person’s remote paradise") is set at 9,000 feet along the Rocky Mountains' Park Range, with mountain views in all directions through the many windows. A dome in the roof lets you take in the stars at night. During the day, there are tons of trails if you want to hike, snow shoe, bike, or cross-country ski with your dog. There's a shower house within walking distance, solar-powered lights and phone chargers, an outdoor fire pit, and an indoor wood-burning stove to keep you warm.
What reviewers say: "This cozy spot has been an oasis and a delightful experience. Thank you so so much for sharing this slice of heaven . The land, animals, and environment has brought such a richness to my life. I came here to disconnect and unwind from the craziness of life and remind myself of what’s important and wow this place has done just done that. This is a place I will cherish forever and hope to come back too. The views are unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before, from seeing a fox right outside the door to seeing the full strawberry moon on a cloudless night. Deb was an amazing host and very responsive as well! This tiny cabin had it all!"

If you want to stay in the Fort Lauderdale area, this Oakland Park Airbnb is a relaxing choice for you and your pup. The main attraction here is the backyard with a pool, loungers, a hammock, and outdoor table area (complete with a grill). The entire outdoor space is surrounded by palm trees, and your hosts encourage you to pluck fresh coconuts from them whenever you want to sip refreshing coconut water. The backyard is also fenced in, which is great for your dog. Inside the house, you'll find two bedrooms, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a spacious, cozy living room.
What reviewers say: "This house was absolutely perfect! Everything was better than expected and very much appreciated! The trees, the pool, the vibe was AMAZING!! Alex was very accommodating and quick to reply with every question, even gave us great suggestions for adventures, very helpful!! This was our first Air BNB experience and it was incredible.

With plenty of space for your pup to play, this Southampton waterfront home is the ideal getaway to kick back, relax, and soak up the sun. It boasts four bedrooms and a charming sprawling backyard equipped with a fire pit, hammock and deck designed to host up to nine guests and your dogs. The beach is located just a mile away from the property, but there's an oversized dock right in the backyard where you can launch kayaks, paddleboards, and all the other fun equipment included with your rental.
What guests say: "This was one of the best Airbnb experiences we’ve had. Extraordinarily clean, wonderfully cozy sheets, and a beautiful water view. We spent a lot of time in the backyard with the fire pit at night and sitting on the dock with a coffee in the morning. Our dog loved the backyard as well and having the small fence in front of the reeds made it feel safer for her. The kitchen was well equipped alongside the BBQ grill for breakfast & dinner. Our group of 5 felt like we had plenty of space. Easy drive to Southampton & Sag Harbor for daytime activities. We couldn’t have asked for a better fall getaway!"

What guests say: "My husband and I stayed for a week in this cabin, as a kind of "work-cation".. so we were both working full time during the day, and then doing some sightseeing and such in the afternoons / evenings. This was an excellent base for us!! We could let our dog run around in the woods, she had a great time exploring while we were working. There are a lot of great trails nearby, and outdoor beer gardens, etc. It was a lovely week."
