Dog lovers will enjoy a trip to The Dog Bark Park Inn in Idaho. This bed and breakfast is built in the shape of a beagle. Make sure you grab a souvenir from the gift shop!
If your travel plans find you in Tokyo, Japan, the Capsule Value Kanda can accommodate guests in small pod-like rooms. This is also becoming a popular option at airports, most recently the Dulles Airport in Washington D.C. with the Sleepbox Nap Lounge. Travelers can spend an hour or longer (even overnight) in a 30 or 45-foot room with a memory-foam mattress!
Fellow Lord of the Rings fans, this one is for you. New Zealand is home to The Hobbit Motel in Waitomo. Only a two-hour trip from Auckland, this hotel is lovely and charming, and hobbits alike will feel just like Bilbo Baggins. The same area is also home to a 1950s Bristol Freighter plane, where you can stay in the cockpit of the plane.
Kenya is home to the Giraffe Manor, where guests can be up-close and personal with the wild, long-necked animals. The manor resides on private land located within a forest that is indigenous to Nairobi. However, there are only 12 rooms offered at the manor.
If you like the cold and have always dreamt of sleeping in your own igloo, be sure to check out the Kakslauttanen Hotel in Saariselkä, Finland. The glass igloos allow guests to look up at the northern lights, as it is only open during the season to enjoy aurora borealis.
These hotels will make your vacation memorable and extra fun! Call AurTravel at 402-891-6909 to get started on booking a magical stay at one of these or many other “quirky” hotels.
