Dog Friendly Program

Our dog friendly resort in Virginia does allow guests to bring their canine cohorts with them to enjoy during their visit. At Lansdowne Resort and Spa, we understand how important your four-legged friend is to you. Our lush grounds around the resort are perfect for exploring, but we ask you do not walk your dog on any of the golf courses for your own safety.


The Potomac Heritage Trail is a short walk away and is located along the historic Potomac River. Our front desk or concierge will be happy to tell you how to access this serene and peaceful trail for you and your furry friend to explore.


Our goal is to provide you and your dog a pleasant and fun-filled stay, but also a safe one. For the comfort and safety of all guests and their dogs, we kindly request that all dog owners act responsibly and respect other guests.
