Traveling with a Pet

Umpleby House has a room/suite that can accommodate a 'well behaved and well traveled' pet. These lodging rooms have the same antiques, original art, fluffy comforters, etc. that the rest of the Inn has.  They also have a special amenity liked by both two and four legged houseguests: a private porch or a separate entrance as well as a main door thru the Inn.

Most of our pet guest experiences have been 100% positive.  Please read the following guidelines developed over the 20 years of serving our four legged friends.  We have learned that a guest room at an Inn with strange noises and other humans coming and going is not at all like being left alone in your personal home.

Please read this thoroughly so both you and your pet --- and other houseguests and our staff, will be safe, happy and grateful. Please remember: You are liable for your pet at all times and also responsible for damage, injury or lost revenue due to your pet.TootsieW.jpg (52585 bytes)

Please Note:  Tootsie, a female chocolate brown Lab is our Inn dog.  A frequent visitor to the Inn and its grounds, Tootsie lives with the Innkeepers in a private home behind  the Inn.  If you or your special pet would like to communicate with Tootsie, Click Here


Pet Principles

  1. Shampoo / Flea Dip prior to arrival.

  2. Bring along a water dish, food, favorite toy, familiar bedding, an extra blanket to throw on the floor or bed, and a travel cage.

  3. Always keep your pet on a leash while on Inn grounds and near others.  Other adults, children or another pet may fear your animal.

  4. Do not leave your pet in a room unattended or out of its travel cage.  All guests are entitled to the 'quiet enjoyment' of the Inn.

  5. Most restaurants with outdoor seating allow you to bring your pet.  Others bring food back to the Inn.  (Sometimes a seat in your shaded car while you dine is appropriate too.)

  6. Exercise your pet in the fields across the street, not on Inn grounds.  NOTE: there is a leash law and a 'pooper-scooper' law in New Hope.

  7. Wipe paws and check for ticks before returning. Ask your Innkeeper for paper towels.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.  Have a great stay!


We’ve been visiting the Wedgewood Inn for over 10 years (at least 30 visits!). I guess you could call the Inn our home away from home. It’s our first choice destination when we need an escape from the stresses of the city and the work world (we’re from D.C.) -- we cannot think of any other place we’d rather go. One of the best things about the Inn is that it allows dogs. Dogs love the Inn and the town of New Hope. Everything a dog needs is at its doorstop -- walks on the canal and a doggie gourmet shop on Main Street. For humans, there are great restaurants, galleries, and shops. A local artist has painted portraits of both our dogs. If you love gardening, you couldn’t be better situated -- garden centers abound (one within walking distance of the Inn). Last but not least, we love the Inn because of the warm welcome we always receive from Dinie and Carl and their staff. There’s a lot to be said about a place “where everyone knows your name.”
