First Look: Dogfish Head Inn in Lewes, Delaware

As a follow up on our post from a few weeks ago about Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione’s voyage on the high seas this summer, we have some hot news to share about the new inn the brewery is launching in Lewes, DE near its Milton headquarters.

Doors open to the Dogfish Inn July 4th weekend, but the reservation line will begin booking rooms sooner. Calls will be accepted starting Friday, June 27.

The 16-room inn extends style and convenience consistent with the standards today’s travelers expect, while celebrating a bygone era of family vacations, big cars and endless summers. Naturally, rooms are appointed with beer-centric amenities and design elements. Each one is outfitted with a wool Dogfish blanket created in collaboration with the iconic American apparel maker Woolrich, a Tivoli radio and screenprints of beer labels from Dogfish Head’s music collaborations. Delaware artist Steve Rogers created a treasure hunt throughout the motel by painting the historic Lightship Overfalls somewhere in each room. A National Historic Landmark and one of only 17 lightships remaining, the real Lightship Overfalls is docked just a few hundred feet away.

Mini-fridges in rooms come stocked with locally made snacks, and there’s barware to enjoy the beers guests bring back from the Dogfish brewery and brewpub. Retro American-made beach chairs and Apolis tote bags are ready for trips to the local beaches. A library in The Cottage was curated by the renowned City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. Guests can borrow or buy a beach read or a heavy hitter. The patio features the Cowboy Cauldron where friends and families can gather ‘round a fire and count shooting stars.

To help guests get the most out their stay at the Dogfish Inn, the team there has put together a map highlighting local landmarks. With a kayak launch, nearby Junction and Breakwater Trail and the Cape Henlopen State Park all in close proximity, the inn serves as a springboard to dive deep into the beauty of coastal Delaware by bike, by hike, by paddleboard or kayak.

The Dogfish Head Inn is located just a few hours from Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York. Coastal Delaware offers beautiful summers and temperate shoulder seasons. On October 1, for example, when the average temperature on Martha’s Vineyard is 58 and the water temperature is 62, the air in Delaware is 66 and the water is 68, making the Dogfish Inn a great getaway for the off-season.

Room rates run in the mid-$200s on weekdays and high-$200s on weekends. The suite, dubbed Sweet!, will be in the high-$400s on weekdays and the high-$500s on weekends. There's a two-night minimum on Fridays and Saturdays.
