COVID-19 Policies updated 21 August 2021

Room Cleaning / Sanitation

To help ensure a COVID-free environment, your room will remain unoccupied for 24 hours prior to (and 24 hours after) your stay as we undergo a complete cleaning. As such, we charge a higher rate for single night reservations.

Your visit

Mandatory COVID-19 vaccination status for reservations after 21 August 2021.

Reservations made prior to 21 August 2021:

If you are vaccinated, you may follow the CDC guidelines and forego mask wearing.

If you are unvaccinated, we respectfully ask that you continue to

  • maintain a 6' social distance at all times.

  • wear your mask when in the presence of others (bring your own, we cannot provide these).


  • Breakfast will be served in either the dining room or porch/patio with sufficient distance between individual tables.

  • Each table will have its own coffee carafe (and creamer / sugar, etc., if desired).



All restaurants in Shepherdstown and the surrounding area are now open for both on-site dining and takeout. Rules and policies are frequently changing so we cannot predict what your favorite restaurant may be asking in terms of mask wearing, etc.

Regardless, we welcome you to bring your lunch or dinner back to Sundogs and enjoy it in either the dining room, porch, or anywhere on the property.

Snacks and Beverages

  • We regret we are no longer offering afternoon snacks except on Fridays. Open-serve beverages (eg., fresh iced tea, lemon water, etc.) will be available on weekend afternoons (includes Friday).

  • The beverage fridge will be stocked and remains available for your use.

  • The fridge in the second floor laundry also remains available for guest use.

Gift Certificates

Gift certificates issued prior to March 1, 2020, will be honored through the end of 2021.
