The Dogfish Inn embraces modern style and convenience while celebrating a bygone era of family vacations, big cars and endless summers. Designed by Studio Tack in Brooklyn, N.Y., the inn features 16 rooms filled with thoughtful, beer-centric amenities and design elements.
Each room includes a wool Dogfish blanket created in collaboration with the iconic American apparel maker Woolrich. You’ll also find a Tivoli radio and screenprints of beer labels from our music collaborations.
Local artist Steve Rogers has created a treasure hunt of sorts by painting the historic Lightship Overfalls somewhere in each room. A National Historic Landmark and one of only 17 lightships remaining, the Lightship Overfalls is docked just a few hundred feet away.
Each room is equipped with a mini-fridge stocked with locally made snacks, and there’s barware to enjoy the beers you bring back from our brewery and brewpub. Retro American-made beach chairs and Apolis tote bags are ready for trips to the local beaches.
The cottage features a library curated by the renowned City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. You can borrow or buy a beach read or a heavy hitter.
At night, gather on the patio around the Cowboy Cauldron and count shooting stars with your friends and family.
The next morning, enjoy complimentary Dogfish Chicory Coffee, roasted by our neighbors at Notting Hill.
With all these thoughtful touches, it’d be tempting to stay inside. But to help guests get out and about, we've put together a treasure map highlighting local landmarks. With the kayak launch, the nearby Junction & Breakwater Trail and Cape Henlopen State Park, the inn acts as a diving board to go deep into the beauty of coastal Delaware by bike, by hike, by paddleboard, by boat, by golly.
HECK YEAH, DOGS!
We’re cool with dogs, as long as you’re cool with your dogs. Deal? Just give us advance notice and we’ll get you and your pooch set up in one of our seven dog-friendly rooms. (We keep half pet-free for those with allergies.) Here’s the deal: Two small dogs or one large dog per room, please. If your dog weighs more than 80 pounds, first of all, whoa. Second of all, call us and we’ll try to work something out.
$75 flat rate
- No fleas, please. We welcome clean, non-aggressive dogs with proof of up-to-date vaccinations.
- Our inn-mates love dogs, but they don’t have time to dog-sit. Please care for your dog for the duration of your stay.
- A leash is a no-brainer. We’re next to a road and a canal, so keep 'em leashed. Inn-mates can only service your room if your dog is gone.
- No beer for Fido. It’s not good for him and he’s probably underage anyway. (Dog years don’t count.)
- Please pick up the poop.
