The Stone Dog Inn & Spaw is specially designed with all the comforts of home in mind. Our home away from home provides a fun, safe, social, and cage-free environment. Occupying five wooded acres and surrounded by nature, our guests exchange the stress of an overcrowded kennel and daycare setting for a peaceful, nurturing environment. Our Inn is like nothing you (or your dog) has ever seen. The Stone Dog Inn was built over an 18 month span, within a newly renovated beautiful & historic Colonial home. We are the furthest thing from a kennel!

We accept a limited number of dogs at SDI, ensuring that each guest receives an abundance of loving attention.

Our Inn is uniquely crafted to be unlike any other dog facility.
