Rated 5 out of 5Â by autumnjay03 Easy assembly
This was really easy to put together and seems to be pretty sturdy for the value. I have two little dogs that have so far only sniffed it, but as it warms up and they're outside more, I'm sure they'll warm up to it.

Bought this for my rescue cats to have a place to hide. They love it. Will last a long time. Would be great for small dogs, poodles, paps, pugs, chihuahua, cockers type dogs.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by SissySue Very cute CAT house!
I bought two of these for my CATS. It was very easy to put together. I smells of cedar, which I love. It looks great. The cats were interested right away.

Even reading the stated dimensions, its hard to envision how A Room With A View actually looks. It is bigger than I imagined, but small enough for indoors. Made from cedar, it's furniture-quality construction will not look out of place in an animal-loving home.
Yes, yes--it's a doghouse and meant for outdoors. However, its rich cedar appearance will weather to typical cedar grey if exposed to the elements. You may want to thoroughly weatherize the abode, if you're keeping it outside.
The house is easily assembled with a screwdriver. Even if you're not handy with tools, you won't have a problem.
This solid and sturdy house is more beautiful than pictured. However, I disagree that it is suitable for a dog. The bottom will fit dogs to about small-medium size. The 'view'--the upper section--is largely inaccessible to the average pooch. The stairs are very narrow and steep. Most dogs aren't agile enough to negotiate ladder-like stairs. Agility aside, the stairs don't appear strong for even a medium dog. If s/he is able to jump high enough to get to the top, would still need to overcome the railings.
We actually wanted this for our cats. Its perfect for their need to sometimes hide, as well as their love of heights. With pillows in the house and on the balcony, our cats loll their days away in comfortable bliss. Sometimes there's a dog on the bottom and a cat or two on top. Since this house in our house, we position it so our dogs can easily step off the bed to the house's top section.
Due to its beauty and novelty, the "Room with a View" is highly recommended FOR CATS and some dogs. It is pricey, but you do receive a quality product in return.
