Do you love your dog? Is your hound your fur baby? Do you and your pup need to get the hell out of dodge for a bit?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then the 3 Bs Inn is the place to go.
Chris, Fox, and I don’t vacation often. And having a dog does make it interesting when you’re trying to find a place to stay. That said, Chris found this magical place in his journeys. The 3 Bs Inn is a little slice of heaven tucked away in the woods. You can only stay there if you have a dog. Now think about that. How many places WON’T let you stay somewhere because you have a dog? This place does the opposite and it’s amazing.
I have never stayed at a more welcoming, comfortable, clean, and accommodating place. The website may draw you in (go check it out, my recap can wait). It will not fully prepare you for the actual tranquility of this bed & breakfast. We ran away for an overnight trip away from home. I don’t think any of us, Fox included, have been that relaxed in ages. While we didn’t go swimming or kayaking, we did dip our feet in the pond. We visited the ducks, took a walk through the woods on the grounds, sat and read, and watched Fox romp with another guest, Calvin – a big dog. He NEVER plays with the big dogs and there he was chasing the pup around.
We got to chat with the owners and learned that they run the entire place themselves – ground keeping, housekeeping, cooking, booking, etc. They’re a couple with a love for animals in general, but obviously they have a soft spot for dogs. They bought the grounds which was originally home to a number of things – a religious group, a state run home for wayward girls, and a roadside motel. They worked on the place for a year and got it up and running for pups and people.
There are some pet policies and people rules, but to be honest I don’t blame them. They have to make sure that all pets and people are safe and happy. Most things that they have noted are just common sense/courtesy.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone coming to Western North Carolina with their pet. Whether you plan on bringing them out with you or if you need to leave them in their own cabin room for the day, you’ll all probably have a wonderful time.
