We love our dog guests at the Looking Glass Inn in Lincoln City, and we have pictures and stories we'd like to share with everyone. Please email your own dog photos and memories of your stay at Looking Glass to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll post them on our blog.
This beautiful Irish Setter stayed with us recently and then sent in this great photo and note!
Come back soon Finnley! You are beautiful!!
Thank you for a great stay at your inn. This was our
first time taking Finnley on a two hour car ride, to the beach and to spend the
night in a hotel! You made us feel so welcome especially Finn. Finnley loved
the birds on the beach the best. The waves were fun too!
Peanut was a guest of ours this past summer and we are late to share him with the world
via our dog blog!
Come back soon Peanut, Paco wants to see you again!
This is a note Peanut's family left for us...
This was our first time staying at the Looking Glass Inn and
we had such a great time. Everything was just perfect and the staff
was so friendly. Peanut had a great time too and as you can see he wasn’t
ready to leave as we were trying to clean up prior to our departure. He
enjoyed meeting Paco and the rest of the Looking Glass staff (canine and human
alike). Thank you for a great place to stay during our vacation and we
look forward to returning next year!
a quick note to say thank you so much for a wonderful visit to your inn.
Not only was it great for us but also for our golden retrievers, Izzie and
Emma. Thank you for having the water hoses and nozzles to assist in
rinsing the beach sand off of them after their runs on the beach. What a
The welcome from Brianna, breakfast, biscuits(for the
pups) and the beach-what more could we ask for???!!! Thanks again!
From all of us at the Looking Glass Inn: THANK YOU FOR STAYING WITH US!
Here is a couple more photos of these kids and their friends too!
And here is a great note Booger and Porter's family left us:
reservations for January 2013 and can't wait! We first were
invited to join our friends and their chows along with another couple with dogs
and we couldn't believe how accommodating and dog friendly Looking Glass Inn
was, we then returned in March 2012 and can't wait until January 2013! Included pictures
of our first visit with The Roberts family and our Labradoodles Booger and
Porter. See you soon!
Here is a note his mom left us: Linus and I had a fantastic time at our recent stay. Thank you. We enjoyed the fire one stormy day and were pleased to see the sun and calm bay the following day. Linus finally got his much-loved swim time in.
Thank you so much for staying with US, at the Looking Glass Inn!
We stayed at your Inn in
July and had a fantastic visit. Our dogs, (Chloe, a 10 year old black
lab, and Sophie, a 1 1/2 year old chocolate lab), had a blast. Chloe is a
veteran when it comes to retrieving and swimming in the ocean...so much so that
we have to put a doggie life jacket on her because she doesn't know when to stop,
safety first! This was Sophie's first trip to the ocean and she was
scared to get in too deep, even though she wore a life jacket as well.
They were happy that the Inn was conveniently located near the beach
because they didn't have to walk too far to get back to our room after an
exhausting day of play. You provided the finest (and cleanest)
pet-friendly lodging that we have ever experienced. The hospitality was
top-notch, too. Thank you! Hope to see you again.
Attached are some photos of the dogs at the beach.

Hope you ALL come back soon to The Looking Glass Inn!
Below is a couple more pictures and a note his family sent us recently.
"HI! We stayed for 5 days last summer with our dog Cargo. He had the greatest time of his life. I have always meant to send pictures but never got around to it. We are now planning our summer holiday for this year and cannot wait to come back!!
Cargo is coming at the end of May and is bringing his daughter Ivy with him.
Check out Hot Rod! Here he is posing with his own special blanket and pillows!
This "little" guy was a recent guest of ours and this is what he had to say after he left:
"My name is Hot Rod and I stayed at your lovely Inn last week. You were all so nice to me and my parents that we had a really nice relaxing time. I did love the walks on the beach (except for bad weather for a couple of days) and tried to sniff everything I saw. I also enjoyed the leftovers from dinner at Mo’s. We look forward to visiting you again in the near future!"
I have to work and pretty much lay on this red rug most of the day, but at least a lot of other dogs come in and see me.
These are my birthday cookies that I brought into work with me today
to share with the dog guests.
I don't really want to share the cookies, not at all!
My mom put the cookie plate right next to me so I thought they were all for me to eat or to share, whatever I wanted. I was being real good posing for the pictures by the cookies because I was sure I would get to eat them at the end, but I was wrong.
I learned I had to share ALL of them, (except for the one I got, ok I had two,) that they were going to be put on the Front Desk so I couldn't reach them. Great!
There they are, my birthday cookies, on the Front Desk!
I can't even see them from this stupid rug I have to lay on!
This is Callie and we LOVE it when she comes to visit!
Come back soon Callie! You are soooo cute!
Here is the note her mom and dad left for us:
Just wanted to send you a picture with Callie in her Santa coat. Enjoyed our trip there again. Room very nice again and the weather was great. It was great to meet Rain too. She will be a great joy in your life. Have a great New Year and I am sure we will see you soon in the new year. Thanks too for Callie's Christmas gift. She picked it out whenwe checked out. It was the little moose and she sleeps with it in her bed. Thanks again!
Well, there is a story involved but first you must meet Annie Strayler Hofer.
Here she is pleading with her Dad to not make her pose in front of the Dog Christmas Tree
we have here in the lobby.
Once some of our guest dogs came in the lobby and saw her, she seemed to get into it and started to pose in front of their tree.
I think she was showing off in front of the dogs and trying to make them think she's Santa and responsible for all the toys and treats under the tree!
Annie Strayler is pretty special!
To make a tender and somewhat long story short, we don't take cats at the Looking Glass, only dogs, but this cat was a stray kitten found on the property that we cared for until just the right people came to rescue her from the elements and give her an amazing home.
We named her Strayler thinking she was a stray from a trailer up the street. :)
And then one day, some of our guests, Gary in the photos here (and his wife Dianne,) met the kitten during a visit of theirs and after they left and drove all the way home, nearly 6 hours away, they came back!
They came back for the kitten!
Makes me cry!
They call her Annie but we call her Annie Strayler. :)
