Landings Real Estate Group has announced the grand opening details for Paws on Pelham, “Aquidneck Island’s premiere dog friendly inn”.

Paws on Pelham, the former Newport Blues Inn located at 96 Pelham Street, has undergone a complete renovation and will open its doors to guests and their dogs for the first time in October 2019.

Paws on Pelham is the latest inn to join the groups’ growing Vacation Newport brand which offers travelers to Newport County a unique alternative for accommodations compared to traditional hotels and inns.

A Grand Opening Halloween celebration is being planned for Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. The event will take place at the inn and will benefit the Potter League for Animals. The public is welcome to attend and asked to bring donations of puppy training treats, cat treats and toys to assist the animals at the Middletown-based animal care and resource center.

Attendees are also encouraged to bring their dogs dressed in costumes for a chance to win a doggy costume contest. The grand prize winner and his/her owner will be awarded a future overnight stay at the inn. Additionally, dog owners will have the opportunity to have their pooch photographed by a professional photographer and will receive a free digital print. Homemade treats prepared by the team of innkeepers will be served for people and pups.

Paws on Pelham boasts 13 uniquely designed guest rooms perfect for dogs, owners and dog lovers alike, according to Landings Real Estate Group. All room styles feature a private bathroom, a king or queen sized bed(s), fine linens and luxurious soaps and shampoos. Certain rooms are equipped with dry bars, mini-fridges and an additional living space with a sofa-bed. One dog bed is provided in each room and is built into the design. Some rooms feature cozy dog houses while others feature murphy-style dog beds.

Guests can enjoy a complimentary “Grab & Go” style breakfast each morning made by a talented team of innkeepers. The breakfast can be enjoyed in the dining room, on the terrace, “RUFFtop” deck or guests can conveniently take it with them on their day of adventure with their pooch.

Grand Opening rates start at only $154/night this fall. No additional dog fees apply. Rentals of the entire inn can be accommodated for special occasions.
