For the past 2 years my hubby and Ollie the wonder Wiener have spend our vacation at Bonnie Doone. We always get the same suite. #29. It has it's own yard! It is on the canal just a few steps from the beach. Even though you are on the canal it's still private and totally fenced in for Ollie! This...

We are so very pleased you've enjoyed your time here and you are so very right, we do LOVE dogs. (Cats too - Our Cat Bam Bam would most certainly be offended if I didn't mention the feline contingent.) Bonnie Doone has been pet friendly for all 60 years. :) One of the first memories I have of Bonnie Doone...

Really cozy spot, friendly hosts. The big bonus is that it is right on the beach, also comfortable and clean accommodations with lovely view of the lake out the windows. Coffee machine and snacks but no restaurant, but there's places to eat within walking distance. Enjoyed our stay.

We stayed during the first week of August. Had a lovely visit. Rooms were clean and spacious. Bathroom was clean but shower was low on the second floor.
