    The Sniffspot property is gorgeous and lives up to the reviews! A little less than an hour from Grand Rapids, it’s a relaxing and fun getaway for you and your pups.

    Host replied: Thank you for the kind review! We love our Grand Rapids guests!

  • Becky B., Nov 14, 2023

    They had a blast as usual!! So grateful that you share your space with us! 🥰

  • Clara G., Nov 12, 2023

    This is the 2nd time we come! Our dogs loved the trails and so did we. Area is exactly as described. We got to hear the dogs next door and a couple of bird sightings. Looking for the balls around has been a fun experience for our dogs. Today as we approach the property they starting whining to be let out the car! Definitely recommend it! Our babies got so much energy out that they sleep the whole drive home, they got home and got a bath and passed out for a nice long nap. Included a picture of them sleeping, resting their day work out

  • Rachel F., Nov 5, 2023

    We had the best time with our two dogs. It was the perfect spot to take our high energy, reactive, pooches. We couldn’t have asked for a better time with our dogs. Brent and Chrissy’s hospitality made us feel at home. We look forward to going back.

    Host replied: We look forward to hosting you again soon! We are open seven days a week and holidays, year-round. Wait till you see how pretty the trails are here in the winter snow!🐾

  • Cat B., Nov 4, 2023

    Beautiful property! As advertised

  • Allison G., Nov 4, 2023

    We absolutely adore this Sniffspot!! Brent and Chrissy are exceptional hosts… they spoiled my girl for her birthday today and they are just the sweetest, most thoughtful humans. We had an awesome hike - the trails are beautiful and it’s so fun to weave all throughout this amazing property! My reactive dog absolutely thrives here and it makes me SO happy to see her let her guard down and just explore… Can’t wait for our next visit!

    Host replied: What a kind review! We love celebrating birthdays 🎂 here at Happy Trails ‘N Tails! Thank you for spending your special day with us!

  • Sarah S., Nov 3, 2023

    This was a wonderful experience! So much fun for both humans and dogs! We hope to come back on our next trip through!

    Host replied: Thank you for stopping in to exercise your pups while you were passing through!

  • Chelsea K., Oct 29, 2023

  • Alexandria M., Oct 28, 2023

    Such a great spot with amazing hosts! Our pups loved exploring. We can’t wait to visit again soon!

    Host replied: Thank you for coming! The weather was perfect today! The change of seasons is always pretty here! We look forward to hosting you soon!

  • Marilyn R., Oct 24, 2023

    Beautiful setting with nicely groomed trails. The dogs had a blast running free on ten acres that were securely fenced. They also loved the pond. Thanks for a great afternoon!

    Host replied: Thank you for driving so far! We knew you wouldn’t be sorry! Can’t wait for you to return!

My wife and I moved to this beautiful wooded property years ago with our two children and our dog Bear Bear. Our son created this beautiful trail through the woods where we would take Bear for walks everyday. Our beloved Bear Bear has passed and we are opening up this trail for a sniffspot in his honor. Happy Trails 'N Tails to you! -brent & chrissy
