Do You Allow Dogs? Why, YES, We Do!

With two distinct Historical Districts, Port Townsend is a dog-friendly town!  Downtown along Water and Washington Streets, we have outdoor cafes for people-watching and many delightful shops for window-browsing.

Many of the Downtown merchants provide outdoor water bowls for thirsty pets along the sidewalks in warmer weather.  Plus, the area offers hiking trails, beaches and lovely Uptown neighborhoods for taking leisurely walks together while admiring the local flora and architecture.

So, we invite you to bring your furry family member; no matter the size, weight, or breed -- If your dog fits through the door (and we have a dog-friendly suite available) they're welcome at the Bishop Victorian Hotel. We offer a dog-approved, no-fuss check-in (and often a scratch behind the ear!) Plus, we have got all the goodies you need to keep your pet pampered, in case a favorite toy or a dog bowl got left at home.

In consideration of other guests without a canine companion, or those with allergies, we maintain several suites designated just for dogs and their families. We offer the following five suites to guests traveling with a pooch or two:
Suite 11  --2nd floor King Suite

Suite 16  --2nd floor Family Suite
Suite 17 --2nd floor Deluxe Queen Suite
Suite 25 --1st floor Family Suite

Dog Policies

A pet fee of $20/day per dog applies, and we’ll ask you to abide by a few additional guidelines during your time with us. If you need help arranging a dog-sitter or dog-walker, we'll be glad to assist you. Stop by the front desk to pick up a walking map highlighting dog-friendly areas/dog parks.

Read the full "scoop" here.  We'll ask you to sign a similar Dog Policy form at check in, so we hope you'll read through it!
