Dog-Friendly Airbnbs for a Twin Cities Staycation

Is there anything more puppin’ mutts right now than having to cancel a tropical vacay? H*ckin’ COVID. Ok, so you might not be sipping a frozen drink with a little umbrella on the beach right now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still take a stay-cay! Even if it’s not far from your own personal “Quarantine Central” (er, house), it’s a new year, so book a relaxing change of scenery to go along with it. And good news for pup—we’ve compiled a list of the hippest and coziest dog-friendly Airbnbs so she can tag along.

Note: We verified that all rentals were dog-friendly at the time of publication, but make sure you let hosts know about your four-legged guests, and be pup-ared to pay a pet deposit.
