Architectural genius or barking mad?

Idaho's Dog Bark Park Inn, a bed & breakfast guesthouse inside the World's Biggest Beagle, is the pet project of married chainsaw artists Dennis Sullivan and Frances Conklin.

The pair built 30-foot-high 'Sweet Willy' in 1997, funded through sales of miniature dog carvings.

Needless to say - the Trojan-horse style abode is very dog-friendly.

According to their Facebook page, the B&B proprietors 'created Dog Bark Park as a venue to make, display and sell their chainsaw sculptures.'

They then decided to build the two big beagles, Sweet Willy and 12-foot-high Toby, 'to add to the dog theme of their work.'

The dog lovers have said they chose the beagle for their architectural feat because it was a safe bet.

'It was the first breed of dog Dennis started carving 28 years ago and it remains a best-seller all this time,' Conklin told BBC.

'Plus, it is a politically correct breed since there are no horror stories about it.'

Sweet Willy sleeps four, with a queen bed in the main section and two twin futons in the head, all decked out with canine-inspired furnishings.

Guests enter the beagle's body from a private second story deck, and are treated to dog-shaped biscuits left on their pillows.

That's one unfortunate place to put the entrance.

That should be the exit.   :silly:
