COVID-19 Updates

Stay Small, Stay Safe, Stay Inn

The Christopher Dodge House has always been committed to the safety and well-being of our guests and staff. While Rhode Island continues to make progress in the fight against COVID-19 we want to make sure you feel comfortable about your stay at our bed and breakfast. Since we’re a small property, that means fewer guests, hence the phrase Stay Small, Stay Safe, Stay Inn!

Below are some of the protocols that we have put in place, to help put your mind at ease during your stay.

Mask Guidelines

Effective Monday, December 20, 2021, a temporary indoor mask mandate will be put in place by Rhode Island Governor Dan McKee. Indoor masking is required unless you are able to show proof of vaccination. For proof of vaccination, the original card, a photo of the card, or an app component can be satisfactory. This will be checked upon arrival at the front desk.
