Lazy J Ranch Motel in Three Rivers, Calif.: Reader recommendation

I highly recommend the Lazy J Ranch Motel, about three hours from Los Angeles. It's a wonderful place to stay with your dog. There is a large, grassy area next to the pool where the dog can run and play. The Kaweah River, a short walking distance away, provides a beautiful walk for both man and dog. Lake Kaweah, a 10-minute drive, has picnic boat rentals that perfectly accommodate the pooch. Much fun for all. Rooms from about $145 a night.

Lazy J Ranch Motel, 39625 Sierra Drive, Three Rivers, Calif.; (559) 561-4449.
