DINE Dollars Program

If you’ve stayed at a DINE inn, you’ve probably been pleasantly surprised when the innkeeper offered a $50 DINE dollars certificate for your next stay.  Many guests are flabbergasted to receive such a generous incentive to  visit more than one Distinctive Inn of New England property.  This program is a wonderful motivator  to visit other DINE inns.

When you visit any one of the 11 member inns, your DINE innkeeper will give you aStay at any DINE inn and receive $50 in DINE dollars toward your next stay at any other DINE inn $50 DINE Loyalty Rewards Certificate which can be used at any of the other 10 DINE properties (note it’s not valid at the inn which issued it) for your next getaway.  When it’s time to take your next DINE vacation, call any of the ten other inns (not including the one where you got the DINE dollar certificate) and make a reservation, mentioning the certificate when you book. Present the certificate to the innkeeper during your next stay and the $50 reward will be taken off your final bill.

Of course, there are a few rules with this program – but not many.  It is a reward for those who book directly with the inn.  It won’t be issued to those who make reservations with any third party booking site like Expedia,, or  In addition, it can’t be used with any other promotion, package, offer, discount or gift certificate.  We allow one DINE dollars certificate per stay too.  Click here to read all about the DINE dollars program.

Book Direct

Book direct bannerWe can assure you that you will get the best deals when you book your next DINE getaway directly with the inn.  Call the inn and talk to the friendly innkeepers about the special offers you might qualify for or book directly from the inn’s website.  Some DINE inns offer hot deals on certain dates, others offer savings packages and still others honor memberships in associations like AAA or AARP.  Not only will you find the best deal by working directly with the innkeeper, but if you need to make a change in your reservation, you’ll have far less hassles if you’ve booked directly with the inn.  When you book through Google, TripAdvisor or any of the other third party booking sites, they “own” the reservation.  Thus, the innkeeper can’t offer any upgrades or help out with their stringent cancellation policies if you need to make a change.
