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.
