Today in architecture shaped like animals, meet the Dog Bark Park Inn, which opened in 2003 in the tiny western Idaho prairie town of Cottonwood. On the grounds: Toby, a 12-foot-tall beagle statue carved by artists (and Dog Park Park owners) Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin), and Sweet Willy, which houses a two-bedroom bed and breakfast that rents out for about $90 a night. According to the official description, the wooden guesthouse recalls "the type of roadside architecture popular in the early days of automobile vacation travel when travelers would often buy gas, eat meals or stay overnight in a building that looked like something else." The motto? "At Dog Bark Park Inn sleeping in the doghouse is a good thing!" Head over to the Travel Channel for a video tour.
