We are always interested in exploring dog-friendly B&B's, and brought our two dogs here for a 3-day visit. We were quite happy. The owners are extremely friendly and are very helpful with suggestions on where to visit and dine. They prepared two delicious, healthy breakfasts during our stay. They also had treats to tide us over in the afternoons (delicious cookies and brownies). The grounds are very expansive and inviting for a stroll, especially with two enthusiastic dogs. Lots of places to explore, including "the maze" where my wife got lost. (But fortunately our oldest dog found their way out!) The room we stayed in was a bit small, but had lovely antiques and a very comfortable bed. The shower was a bit high-tech, and the jets in the tub didn't actually work. We couldn't get the air conditioning to work, either, but in April all we had to do was open the windows and things were fine. Orange itself doesn't have a lot to recommend it, but we anticipated that and we just used the Inn as a base of operations to explore wineries and the countryside. All in all, we recommend the Inn on Poplar Hill and hope to return soon.
