By Emily Randolph, owner of Happy Lady Books and an award-winning author of children’s books for luxury hotels and resorts, as well as the author of the ‘It’s a King’s Life‘ kids’ book series about very special, dog-friendly places.
Well, we know for us, it was love at first sight when we ‘discovered’ Carmel-by-the-Sea and the Cypress Inn, the most dog-friendly city and hotel we have yet to find in the US. We love it so much, in fact, we wrote a children’s book about it.
For the month of February, there is even more to wag your tail over with their ‘Puppy Love’ offer:
