No Longer Pet Friendly :: Deerfield, MA Lodging

Deerfield Bed and Breakfast

We are so sorry to say, that even though we all love dogs, we can no longer accept dogs here at the Deerfield Inn. Anybody who has an existing reservation to bring their dog may do so, of course, but we cannot take any new reservations as of September 1st.

We are very sad that having dogs stay is not working for us, as most of us here at the inn like to travel with our dogs, but the repair and replacement has become too high: scrabbled wallpaper, chewed bureau edges, ripped upholstery, pee-stained dust ruffles… and one fitted carpet that had to be replaced!

Of course there are many good dogparents who use the bowls, towels, and bed we provide (not the ice bucket, the bath towels, and the pillows), and crate their pet when they are away from the room so it doesn’t attack the housekeepers or damage the space in its being-elsewhere anxiety; so we thank you for your understanding and are so sorry it has come to this.

If you are a guest at Champney’s, your dog may still join you on the dining porch if the weather is agreeable.

Thank you for understanding, and again, we are so sorry it has come to this.

We Are All Lit Up At The Deerfield Inn!

Monday, August 19th, 2013


We don’t mean we have been testing the #microbrew beer before the Brewskis and Brats on September 1stDeerfield B&BWe have beautiful lights up along the old pillars that let folks know, “We are back open! Come on in!  All are welcome at the Deerfield Inn!” Working on the Deerfield Inn




First Paul removed the turf and soil and scooped out the most perfect trenches. Passers-by stopped to peer into them. People seem to love holes in the ground.Lighting project at Deerfield Inn


Then Caleb and Steve came by to bend and install piping and electricity leads to the lights – stage lights with a narrow but brilliant beam.





They all shoveled back in the dirt, and Paul and his sidekick Watson tamped back and watered the sod.

The lights went on as dusk fell, and guests arrived out of the blue, so to speak, having seen the Champney’s sign lit up.

Thank you, gentlemen, for the wonderful job you did, for being so efficient and so cheerful in the heat of the day.
