Outdoor activities, comfortable quarters make these homes a must for dog-lovers

At some of the fully restored historic properties owned by Landmark Trust USA, you can walk out of your front door to hike or, in the winter, snowshoe or ski. You know who will love that? Your dog, of course! Couples (and their pooches – up to two of them) will love the cozy, one-bedroom 1915 Sugarhouse, a rustic cabin at the edge of a stand of maples still used for maple sugaring in the spring. For larger groups, there’s the 1802 Amos Brown House, which sleeps six and also allows for two dogs. You can walk right out the front door to go hiking, biking, bird-watching, skiing, snowshoeing or snowmobiling. Six miles away, you can go canoeing, swimming or fishing at the Harriman Reservoir.
