    West Virginia Oasis

    My dog Daisy and I had a delightful one-night stay at SunDogs in early April. We were the only guests and loved having the spacious and comfortable house to ourselves. David met us at the front door and made sure we had everything we needed. We then took advantage of the expansive grounds and set out to town for an evening stroll and dinner. I loved the quiet of the property, which allowed me to appreciate all the bird songs in the morning! I was also extremely pleasantly surprised to see a thermos of coffee waiting for me when Daisy got me up for a walk and breakfast! And speaking of breakfast, the Benedict was sublime! Thank you so much for a lovely getaway; we will be back! Two small suggestions: an accessible microwave and fridge for leftovers would be nice.

    A Real Find!

    We stayed at Sundogs B&B for two nights for a much needed break from the city. Peggy and David are very welcoming. David was waiting when we arrived to show us to our room which was beautiful, comfortable and quiet. The house is amazing with both indoor and outdoor areas to relax and enjoy the view. The property is nestled amongst the trees with numerous walking paths around the property.
    Breakfast was delicious on both days and enjoyed outside. Maggie our dog was welcome and loved walking all over the property. Lots to see and do in the towns close by. Already planning out next stay.

    Incredible place!

    We stayed for a long weekend and loved it. The B&B is beautiful, with great rooms and the grounds are really wonderful with lots of walking trails that our dog loved. Location is great too, close to Shepardstown and Harpers Ferry and lots of hiking. We will definitely be back!

    Sundogs is the perfect little get away! Not too far from DC but it feels like a true escape. David and Peggy do a wonderful job making you feel at home, giving you everything you need for your stay. Cannot recommend Sundogs enough and already looking forward to coming back for another stay!

    Beautiful Weekend!

    Brought EllieMae, St Bernard, for a lovely weekend away. This is one of the most "dog friendly" places we have ever stayed! Peggy and David are wonderful hosts and have created a gorgeous, peaceful, quiet retreat.
    Town is only ten minutes away with great shops and restaurant choices.
    We are looking forward to returning and feeding the goats and chickens again:)

    Perfect Fall Retreat!

    We needed to get out of the city for a couple days and were looking for somewhere we could bring our 30-pound cattle dog mix with us. Sundogs was a perfect choice and we will be returning!

    We arrived in the late afternoon for check in and had a chance to take a glance at our generously outfitted room (nice sitting area, HUGE soaking tub and shower, large comfy bed!) and have nice walk around the property before heading ten minutes into town to a recommended dog-friendly cafe for dinner.

    Breakfast on our first morning was a wonderful veggie frittata, biscuits, and fresh fruit, and we ate on the screen porch so our doggo could have a little more space to roam without us holding onto his leash (but he saw the good eats and stayed nearby anyway!). Breakfast the second day was fresh fruit, a marvelous blueberry scone and a sumptuous mushroom and spinach omelette, Yum!! They also had beverages and snacks available all throughout the day in the common area kitchenette.

    Took lots of nice walks around the mown paths on the property and loved meeting the celebrity goats and chickens. Our only regret was not having more time to relax and settle into the common areas, but I imagine in post-COVID times with a slightly longer trip that will be easier.

    Peggy and David clearly take great pride in creating a clean, safe, peaceful and pleasant experience for all their guests, and we can't wait to get back and are recommending it to everyone we know, with or without dogs.

    Exceptional Stay

    My Aussie, Harper and I stayed at Sundogs B&B, 30 Aug - 1 Sept This B&B is exceptional! Squeeky clean and beautiful! These days, the value of a slight change in scenery and community cannot be overstated. To dislodge pandemic anxiety and get away for my Birthday with my pup, I found Sundog’s was the perfect recipe! Toss in some wildlife sightings, creek play, georgous gardens, scenic drives and hikes, with Sundogs you’ve got the perfect recipe pure pleasure! Peggy and Dave’s Vegan breakfast was just what I needed to start my day! The love shown to my pup warmed my heart. Harper was in dog heaven and I in raptured repose. Visit Sundog’s B&B and you will come away refreshed and looking forward to your next visit!

    We stayed at Sundogs this August with our 6 mo old German Shepherd. The home is gorgeous - freshly renovated and the grounds are overflowing with flowers and butterflies. I would stay here again even if I didn’t have a dog! The acorn suite had an awesome bathroom with a freestanding deep-soak tub and a large shower. the hosts were wonderful and patient with our pup. We especially enjoyed the fresh made omelette breakfast - you must try the biscuits! Peggy and David are clearly passionate about their endeavor and about pups too. Highly recommend!

    Lovely place

    Peggy and David are great hosts and this is a truly dog-friendly spot: Everything from a blanket in case your dog sleeps on the bed to towels if he takes a swim in the creek. Despite that, the house, grounds and rooms are spotless and everything of the quality you would expect from a top-class hotel. One aspect that they don't emphasize in their marketing is that the food and beverages they provide are vegan.

    Tiger’s Retreat

    From the time you walk in the door Peggy and David are warm, welcoming and gracious hosts. Amazing food, warm fires and a beautiful room with a view. Tiger had a wonderful weekend walking and running through the fields. All three of us are looking forward to our next visit to Sundogs B&B. Wish we could give more then five bones.

    Wonderful Stay/Happy Dogs

    Sundogs Bed and Breakfast is a warm and charming property. Peggy and David, the owners/operators, are lovely and extremely caring. From the rooms and the food to the hospitality and grounds, we could not have enjoyed our stay more. I could not recommend a stay here more highly.

    Happy Veterans Day

    Sundogs treated us on our Vet's Day getaway. The location is fantastic and lovely. Immaculate rooms. Great fire. We brought our little dog and just sat by the fire drinking some wine. Good conversation. Peggy and David have an interesting background and it's lovely to see them reap their rewards. The breakfast was lovely. We will be back! I wish them the most success. Don't hesitate at all to stay here and being able to not worry about your pets is icing on the cake.

    5 bones, more if their are more

    We were possibly the first couple to visit Sundogs when they first opened. I've got to tell you it was great, and seeing their plans for the future, we'll look forward to returning. The welcome was tops, our room was pleasant fresh & will lighted through the window.

    Fumble, our Bernese Mountain Dog, had no complaints. He was on a special diet and David & Peggy helped tremendously so we could meet his needs.

    The breakfasts were 5 stars with freshly made muffins and bread. Ii believe it was the most pleasant meal we can recall. (By the way, we're carnivores, David & Peggy are Vegans. It was good enough that if David would come home and be our personal chef we'd likely convert.).

    They've a number of trails on their property to stroll with your dogs and enjoy the wild life and peace of the paths and quiet of the country.

    Shepherds Town is a short distance a way, and the old town if filled with shops and restaurants that will complete your vacation, short or long. (My apologies, there is no McDonalds or Walmart to be found, but you won't be sorry.

    Our Fumble recently passed from an illness, but we still appreciate staying close to our fury friends and mentors. Believe me, this is the place to go to find that peace everyone deserves from time to time.
