Y’all might remember this little watercolor of me in my travel crate. I love to travel, so I thought, why not create a Stuart’s List of places I stay? Yeah, there’s Angie’s List, Craig’s List, Emily’s List…why not a Stuart’s List?
Here goes…when I was in Staunton last week, I stayed at the Comfort Inn, where you can chomp on freshly popped popcorn in the middle of the night, but you could take your peeps to the Stonewall Jackson Hotel. (They were completely booked when We went, but I’m going to stay there next time. It’s right next door to the Shakespeare Theatre and you know how I love a little culture.)
When I go to the Peaks of Otter, I stay in Bedford at the Super 8. (Hopefully, when the Peaks of Otter Lodge opens again this summer, they’ll take dogs. Paws crossed.)
And, TA DA!!!! drum roll please, when I go to Nags Head on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, we either rent a house, or last time, We stayed in a friend’s cottage on the beach, BUT I just found another place for me to take my two-legged peeps! It’s called The Roanoke Inn and it’s in Manteo, just over the bridge. (Manteo is where lots of my holiday photos have been taken over the last two or three years.)
I emailed them yesterday about their dog policy and YEP! They have two options for pampered pooches. Sweet!
You can also stay at The John Yancey Inn in Kill Devil Hills on The Outer Banks, too. We stayed there a couple of years in a row over the holidays. Right on the ocean.
And, last but not least in this edition of Stuart’s List, is Keswick.
Yes friends. If your ship comes in any time soon, and you’re in the Charlottesville area, you must stay at Keswick. Really. You must. (OH….and they’ve got a sister hotel that allows pooches too just a few miles from where I live.) Our trip to Keswick was to celebrate something special a few years back. (I’d saved up some cash in my piggy bank for the occasion.) The nice people in the lobby remembered my name every time I came and went. OooohHHHHHooooo…and the trails are very nice to stroll along. Nice, huh?
OK pals. That’s it for this installment of Stuart’s List. There’s more, but I’ve got squirrels to chase and naps to take.
You know what you learned today. ‘Nuf said.
