Stay in the heart of Angel Canyon

If you are planning a trip to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, we invite you to stay at one of the many lodging options that Best Friends has to offer.

Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile

Experience the warmth of Best Friends hospitality at the Best Friends Roadhouse and Mercantile, our very own pet-centric hotel and your in-town connection to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. And if you're a Best Friends member, take advantage of our discounted member rates. Please note that our accommodations tend to book well in advance, so make your reservations early.

On-site accommodations

Stay in the heart of Angel Canyon. Best Friends hosts cottages, cabins and RV sites, all on the Sanctuary grounds for your convenience. If possible, make your reservations early as these options tend to book well in advance.

Transportation is not provided, so you’ll need your own vehicle to get around. The Sanctuary is spread across more than 3,700 acres, so you’ll need to drive to and from the Welcome Center, animal areas and other locations. Many of the animal areas are several miles apart, so walking is not a viable option and bicycles are not allowed on most Sanctuary roads. Volunteers in Dogtown will need access to a car for their entire shift.

See options and availability on our online reservation system. And be sure to check out Best Friends Lodging FAQs before booking your reservation. For additional information, call 435-644-2001, ext. 4826 or e-mail
