Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

Intimate getaways are easy to find. But they’re a little harder if you want your getaway to include both your beau and your bow-wow. It’s true -there are only a handful of romantic Bed and Breakfast establishments that will accept your dog.

If you’re looking for a dog-friendly B&B, take a drive to Dover, Delaware. Spend the weekend cocooning at the five-room Little Creek Inn a lovely 1860 Italianate farmhouse surrounded by miles of wide open space. Not far from the coastal inlets of Delaware Bay and the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, it’s the perfect hideaway for a weekend of biking, hiking and antique shopping.

Run by a transplanted New York couple, Carol and Bob Thomas (who is also an award winning chef) the Little Creek Inn boasts a King Room – with a king sized bed, naturally – and a large private bathroom complete with jacuzzi tub. The French themed Queen Room also has a private bath and a Jacuzzi tub. The three remaining rooms are all elegant as well, similarly adorned with antiques and imported linens. Also assisting in the running of this B&B are their two Labradors, Jake and Hank.

What sets this B&B apart is that Bob also conducts Chef Classes, where he shares his culinary secrets. The hands-on cooking classes are taught in the professionally equipped kitchen. The small, intimate class size provides students personalized attention – a great idea for a couples’ vacation with your best friends and their husbands, or even for a girl’s getaway.

You and your entourage, furry or otherwise, will enjoy this comfortable and inviting Bed and Breakfast.
