Because there are only a few dog friendly hotels in the area, we are also including a selection of airbnb and VRBO rentals as well as B&B’s that accept dogs and as of this posting are available for our time frame. Many of them are located on Atlantic Ocean or Chesapeake Bay tributaries and would be my first choice if I was coming in from out of town. All are within a 20-30 minute drive from the test site. Perhaps consider sharing with other handlers to bring the cost down. If you do make a reservation for one of these, please let me know and I’ll update our list. esrc2018 at gmail dot com.
