Top 5 Places to Visit in a Cozy Town in Wagtail Mountain
Wagtail Mountain has gone to the dogs and cats. Once known for its natural spring waters, the town of Wagtail had to reinvent itself and has become to premier resort for people who want to vacation with their pets. Holly Miller's grandmother owns the Sugar Maple Inn, so naturally she's partial to it. But the whole town caters to cats and dogs. It's even an electric golf cart community to reduce noise and pollution, and keep all those sweet pets safe on the streets.
1. The Sugar Maple Inn. Located at the end of the large pedestrian zone, the historic inn is a favorite place to stay. If you're traveling with cats, be sure to ask for one of the rooms in their cats-only wing. Each room has a screened in porch with a real tree for your favorite feline to climb to watch birds and enjoy the fresh mountain air. There is also a "cat walk" near the ceiling of each room for your cat's entertainment. If you're not staying at the inn, stop by for one of the decadent breakfasts or for afternoon tea overlooking the lake and the mountains, where dogs and cats are welcome and have their own menus.
2. When you're ready for a little nosh, stop by Sweet Dog Barkery for a croissant and baked goodies for your favorite hound.
3. Or visit the old-fashioned soda fountain at Heal! Drugs and Sundry. Not only can you get a sundae or a root beer float, but there are dog and cat specialties, too, not to mention the penny candy assortment that includes dog and cat treats.
4. When you're ready for a hike, hit one of the many trails. Snap a Sugar Maple Inn collar with GPS on your pups and let them run off-leash on one of the fenced hiking trails.
5. For dinner, it's a difficult choice between the upscale restaurant The Blue Boar, which offers fine dining, or Hot Hog, the local barbecue joint. Not to worry, your furry friends are welcome at both!
