Join us for an unforgettable experience this August
as we gather to observe the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse!


This will be the first total solar eclipse to touch the continental United States since 1979 and the first to pass coast-to-coast across the U.S. since 1918.

Better yet, the very narrow "path of totality", in which the sun is completely blocked by the moon, will pass directly over the Dauphine Hotel!


To celebrate, we've put together a special, two-day event designed to help our guests get the most out of this unique opportunity.

The event spans two days, and begins with lodging the night before the eclipse. That evening a special presentation will be given on "Solar Eclipses and their Role in the Advancement of Science" by one of your hosts, Sandra Holder, who holds a Master's Degree in Applied Physics. Special souvenir eclipse glasses will be distributed, along with safety and informational handouts.

The morning of the eclipse will begin with a fresh country breakfast, cooked to order and served between 7:30 and 10:30 am. Guests will then have plenty of time before the eclipse begins at 11:46 am to get settled outside on one of several porches and lawns which have a clear view of the sun's path through the sky. As the eclipse nears totality, complimentary champagne will be served, along with other refreshments and light snacks. These will be available throughout the remainder of the eclipse which will last until 2;41 pm. A live NASA feed will be streaming in several common areas of the hotel.

That evening your other host, Scott Holder, who holds degrees in History and Geography, will give a presentation on "Eclipses in Ancient History". After seeing an eclipse first-hand, Scott will share with you the impact witnessing such an event has had throughout human history.

PRICES: Total price for the package ranges from $356 to $556, plus taxes. Package does not include dinner either night. There are a number of good restaurants in the area that we can recommend.

TERMS: Payment in full is required to make a reservation. In the event you have to cancel, a refund will be made, minus a $25 cancellation fee, ONLY if and when the room can be re-booked.
