Wendy, the Border Collie
Keswick Hall, Charlottesville, Virginia

True to her nature to herd, Wendy, a border collie, ensures that human and furry guests are welcomed into the pack at Keswick Hall. This 600-acre resort at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, near Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, is in the heart of Virginia hunt country. And no one loves a hunt more than Wendy, who earns her keep as the official duck and goose re-locator. There's also a spa, an Arnold Palmer–designed golf course, and a pool in case the only hunt you enjoy is during a sale at Saks Fifth Avenue.

Petiquette: Those with dogs in tow won't feel compromised at Keswick Hall. The pet program includes select accommodations in this 48-room former private mansion; a butler is available for dog walking; and although your four-legged lady or gentleman is not allowed in the restaurants or bars, the hound room service menu, which includes filet mignon, is served on china.
