The Hotel location is priceless you get a nice view to the river and it's cousy and comfortable. Even if you don't like the dog themed part of the Hotel it don't bother you since there's not dogs running around the whole hotel. Sandy was great and kind, hopefully he's now paying his staff lol.

Just had a terrific weekend with Sandy, Layla, and Stella! What a fantastic place to bring your kids and your puppy dog… And spend the weekend as a family (Sandy being the newest member!) The chocolate chip pancakes were off the chain… The omelettes were insane! Loved that my golden doodle Atlas had the run of the place all day…...

This was the first time (ever) for me to try to travel with my two small dogs. Sandy and his lovely hostess dogs, Layla & Stella couldn't have been nicer! My "Boys" aren't the most sociable but Sandy's "Girls" seemed to understand that this was all new for my "Boys". Our room was beautiful and comfortable.

I enjoyed two nights with my family at Layla's. Great hospitality from the Inn Keeper along with fantastic food. Relaxing atmosphere with a nice warm fire in the fireplace made the ambiance fantastic. Not only did my family enjoy to stay, we gained a new friend in Sandy McDougall - the Inn Keeper!

This was our first time taking our dog on a non-camping vacation, and honestly we didn't know how Colby would do. As soon as we arrived at Layla's, we knew we made the right decision. This inn embodies everything we love about West Dover, Vermont: It's fun, laid back, warm and welcoming. Layla and Stella are gracious hostesses, and their...

From the minute we arrived until the minute we left we were well taken care of. Both the two legged and four legged proprietors knew how to make us feel welcome and taken care of. We had an amazing breakfast that we got to enjoy on the back patio. The suite we stayed in was beautiful! I can't say enough...

This was my first trip to Vermont and Sandy, the owner, was very friendly. He also cooked us an amazing breakfast both mornings. He has two dogs that are so friendly and playful along with dog-friendly rooms.
