Shortening the length of your stay or failure to check-in on the scheduled arrival date will result in the loss of the deposit. Once you have checked-in, you will be responsible for all nights of the reservation, even if an early departure is requested. When given at least 14 days notice of cancellation, we will refund the deposit less a $50 per-room processing fee.  All lodging reservations for weddings are subject to a 30 day cancellation policy with a $50 per room processing fee.

Pet Friendly Accommodations

We certainly do and are delighted to welcome our canine guests to the Inn. Your furry friend will find an Orvis pet guest bed, dog bowls and a bag of goodies upon their arrival.

To accommodate our “non-pet guests”, however, we ask that you follow these guidelines. Please leash your dog at all times. Pets are permitted in guest rooms and out of doors. We ask that they do not visit the Inn’s common areas. Pets should use the back entrance of the Inn to access the walking areas and dog bags are provided for cleaning up after them. Pets may not be left unattended when you leave the Inn for the day. When pets are left unattended during dining and relaxing time at the Inn, they should be crated. The Dorset Inn reserves the right to ask any disruptive dogs to leave and a local kennel or pet sitter will be recommended.

There is a $50 pet fee per night added to the room rate up to a maximum of $200.


If any damage or excessive cleaning is needed after a pet stay, There will be up to a $250 charged towards necessary cleaning and repairs.  The pet owner is financially responsible for all damage incurred by the pet as well as any lost rental income due to damage.
