Attended a family wedding with reception and 2 nights at this wonderful country inn. The staff were very pleasant and accommodating to our needs. As guests we enjoyed a delicious gourmet breakfast each morning and due to a late arrival on our first night we were allowed to wind down at the tavern with very pleasant staff. My only recommendation... More

With just a little over a week after the opening of the tavern one can already tell that this tavern is going to be a huge success. Why? Exceptional customer service and delicious food. Tonight was our first visit to this new restaurant and we already know that this is going to be our go to place. The atmosphere is... More

We stayed here for two nights while my wife was attending a horse clinic. Staff was very pleasant the entire stay. There was some construction going on outside and one of the workers actually came up and apologized for the noise, which really was so low volume that it wasn't a bother at all. Room was clean and serviceable, nothing... More

Some of my family, and family friends spent this weekend at the Inn, and we all agreed we would come back in a heartbeat. Clean and comfortable... cranking AC in 80+ heat. The breakfast was soooo varied and better than any other "breakfast included" stays, except for maybe upscale resorts. Friendly staff and waitstaff. The inn sits on a pretty... More

I stayed at the Inn for 3 nights this September, taking one zero day as well. The folks at the Inn are very friendly, savvy about the trail, helpful with shuttling, and dish up a terrific breakfast. The room was quiet and secure, the shower was divine, and the location is far enough from Hanover to avoid the pricey fare,... More

My wife and I held our wedding reception here, and after a year of planning, we couldn't be happier. We chose to go with an hors d'oeuvres only wedding, and while we never pre-tasted, the food was fantastic, and the guests' compliments were abundant. The atmosphere was warm and charming. The staff were attentive and friendly. Tami (the owner) has... More

I have had the opportunity to stay at the Dowds' Country Inn a few times now, and each time I have had a great experience. The rooms are clean and tidy, the inn itself is beautiful, the garden and lawns outside are well maintained, and all of the staff were very friendly and accommodating to our food requests.

I've stayed at Dowd's on a few occasions and have always found the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms are well-kept, and breakfast is consistently delicious. I also appreciate the fact that this is a family-owned and run business, and that it can well accommodate everyone from the solitary traveler to a large wedding party. I would highly recommend...
