Pet friendly lodging winter park COPet Friendly Rocky Mountain Lodging

Summer is the time of year to get out of the house with the whole family and anymore that means bring Fido, or Moses, or Barky along on the family vacation. Well, there is no better destination that this part of the Colorado Rocky Mountains here in Winter Park, CO. Lots of water for the furry ones to play in and miles and miles of bicycle and hiking trails. Enough activities to keep old rover busy and probably more than enough for his owner.

I saw this story today about the top destinations about pet friendly vacations and saw that the Winter Park – Rocky Mountain National Park area was listed as the #1 pet friendly location I just had to put it in the blog even if is mostly about Snow Mountain Ranch with their own lodging just around the corner from our house. Here is what they had to say about our confines up here in  the Rockies:

Winter Park/Rocky Mountain National Park –

Nationally recognized as one of the country premier vacation destinations, the YMCA of the Rockies has two pet-friendly vacation locations in the Colorado Rockies. The Estes Park Center offers beautiful trails for canine-friendly hiking and every Friday during July, a Yappy Hour is hosted for canine guests. Yappetizers and doggy drinks will be served and special guests will give presentations on subjects such as canine nutrition, obedience and agility, and veterinarian advice. At the second location, near Winter Park, dog owners seem to love the serenity of Snow Mountain Ranch and the wide variety of trails available for them and their pets.

Both locations offer a wide variety of activities exclusively for humans, including mini golf, disc golf, swimming, fly fishing, rafting, horseback riding, guided hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park, arts and crafts centers, day camp programs, and family nature programs.
