Late in 2019 I contracted with Dowds' to reserve space for my high school class's sixtieth reunion in August 2020 and put down a $1,000 deposit. In late March 2020, due to uncertainty about the Covid-19 Pandemic, I informed Dowds' of our desire to cancel the planned reunion. I used the "Communicate with us" form on the Dowds' website. I did not get a response. In April I tried again, also using the "Communicate with us" form. Again, no response. In June I called Dowds' and was told that my emails had gone into their spam folder! This was their own form! They informed me that the contract specified that the deposit was non-refundable. I acknowledged that, but told them we were not cancelling arbitrarily, but because of health concerns for a group of people in their late seventies. Dowds' was unsympathetic and ultimately offered a $500 credit for a re-booking in 2021. I turned down that offer because of the poor impression of the way Dowds' conducts its business. Not at all professional. The $1,000 deposit merely held a date and when it became obvious that the date was no longer relevant due to the pandemic that should have voided the contract.

Hello, Thank you for your review, customer feedback is always helpful and allows our team to learn and grow. I apologize that the offer we were able to extend was not agreeable. The financial impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our country's businesses large and small alike has been staggering and unprecedented. Ordinarily, as our Letter of Intent stated, our policy for security deposits is that they are non-refundable. Given that this cancellation was not arbitrary as you stated, our team was able to come up with an offer, a $500.00 credit for rebooking your event sometime in 2021 when the state of our world amidst the pandemic has hopefully improved. We have since worked out the bug that caused your emails to be directed to the incorrect folder in our email software, and we appreciate you bringing this issue to our attention. We do again apologize for the lapse in time between your requests being sent and our responses. We wish you all the best and appreciate your feedback. We are all in this together and do extend our deepest apologies that we were unable to come to a collective solution.

With the cautious staged Covid reopening we were a little leery of having to make this important family trip. But Tami and her staff made this an amazing respite. From Mariah’s ebullient check in, fabulous made to order country breakfast and solicitous help, we were made to feel like that special family member from afar. Would happily return again when all is fully available. Glad to be here and glad YOU are here! Thanks!!

Quick overnight stay with my adult daughter, last minute, on our way to skate at Lake Morey. Our room was very comfortable. We had an outside entry room, butterfield, that could be accessed from the back stairs. Convenient to parking. Great meal at the attached Latham House Tavern. Recommend.

Visited Dowds for one night. The room was really nice. It included a small sitting area. The bed was very comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was great. Will definitely stay here again, if I’m in the area.

We have stayed here several times while visiting our daughter at school. Love the quaintness of the place. Each room is well decorated, warm, clean with nice bathrooms. We have also enjoyed the restaurant which has a wonderful atmosphere and many varieties of local and regional brews on tap. The complimentary breakfast is excellent and the staff couldn't be nicer. It's very casual but well run and we will be back.
