My fam is moving to Idaho Falls- should arrive on Oct 19th. We have to sit around for 2 wks while we wait for our house to close and really need a temporary rental. Has to be pet friendly, and if a hotel we need 2 rooms with 2 beds each due to family sz. If a house, I'd prefer furnished but will rough it if I have to. Looking for $1000 or less for the 2 or 3 weeks we'll need to be there. Anyone have suggestions?

It might be a tad chilly to consider camping, you might want to try Candlewood Suites IDAHO FALLS Hotels | IDAHO FALLS | Guest Rooms

I do know they allow dogs as I've had clients of mine stay there.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've looked at them, but they can be pricey. Any of the hotel rooms can be pricey, not just Candlewood. Hotels would run minimum 55/night (not pricey) for a weekly rate which would end up costing me around 800/wk (that's where the pricey part comes in). I'd pay more for 2 wks of hotels than my mortgage for a 3800 sq ft house! And that's not counting the cost of food if I can't do any cooking. In Boise I was able to find an apt complex that furnished empties and rented them out as vacation rentals until they had renters signed up. It was cheap, I think I paid $250/wk for a 3 bd furnished apt, and the place was quite nice. Sigh. I was just hoping to find a similar situation here, or even a weekly rental with a similar fee as my hometown in GA (a nice hotel suite with a kitchenette goes for $169/up per wk). Oh well, I'll just keep looking. Maybe I'll get lucky and find a month-to-month rental with enough bedrooms that will accept pets. That's still cheaper than the hotel rooms.

Your problem is going to be where they will accept pets. I would say 90% of rentals do not allow them. If you can find one that's reasonable and has the space you need, if you need to board the pets let me know and I can give you the information for boarding.

Hi, jl...
If you are only a couple of weeks away from closing on a house, I would think seriously of kenneling your pet while waiting. Kenneling is much cheaper than paying a stiff pet security on any rental, and it's not that hard to go visit Bowser every day and take him for a walk.

Kenneling also saves you a lot of possible grief. Some uprooted pets become very insecure and can cause major damage to furniture, draperies, etc., and others take off, looking for their old house. A kennel keeps them secure, and pets lose the urge to go back to the old place once they rejoin their family.

We have several excellent kennels here that will keep your pet safe, healthy and secure while you are busy settling in.

Yeah, kenneling isn't an option for us. Any time away from the family and our dog starts losing weight and becomes despondent. She's only 3, is a fiercely loyal breed, and has spent her entire life with a young family with lots of kids and doesn't take well to being away from us for extended periods of time. The cat, on the other hand, probably wouldn't care. I did actually find a place. I called a few rentals on craigslist that hadn't listed a lease length and found one that was willing to accept us on a weekly basis and agreed to accept the pets with a hefty, fully refundable, deposit. I just put it on the cc and it'll go straight back on when we leave. It's costing me about 1/4 staying in hotels would have. Which is good, because my sellers are dragging out our house purchase.

So glad you found something as renting with pets here in SE Idaho isn't easy at best.
