No need to leave your canine companion out of your summer retreat.

No need to leave your canine companion out of your summer retreat: dog-friendly rooms, suites and cottages are offered at three top east coast properties, including: Winvian Farm in Morris, CT; The Inn at Willow Grove in Orange, VA; and 506 On the River Inn in Woodstock, VT.

506 On the River Inn located in the historic town of Woodstock (VT, not NY!) announced its grand opening this summer with 40 upscale rooms that include two designated as dog-friendly. The rooms are outfitted with dog treats and doggy bags and an optional plush pet bed. Both rooms are on the ground level for easy access to the property’s six acres of meadows. Nearby 506 are many hiking trails to explore and the Ottauquechee River, which flows just behind the hotel, is ideal for splashing about. For more information or to book a stay, visit www.ontheriverwoodstock.com.

For those seeking a more southern New England destination, Winvian Farm in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut features 18 designer dwellings, three of which are pet- friendly, including Stone Cottage, Greenhouse Cottage and Connecticut Yankee Cottage. Dog beds, food and water bowls and crates are available upon request and a special tennis ball welcome gift greets each pup at check-in. For more information or to book a stay, visit www.winvian.com.

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains is The Inn at Willow Grove, a former 18th century plantation which was transformed into a luxury hotel in 2010. Here, guests and their four legged friend may enjoy two suites in the Overlook East and West cottages. Amenities for dogs include a comfy bed, doggie treats, and food and water bowls.
