Black Dog Inn follows the saga of the Trudeau family and the trials and tribulations of dealing with each other while trying to run a small hotel. It seemed like a good idea at the time. The family patriarch, George, spent the family fortune and bought the Inn. When the old man passed away, his last will and testament, delivered on video, bequeathed the Inn to his beloved black dog. Now, his three sons and their families, his ex-wife, mistress and various employees must find a way to get along and manage the family business without driving each other completely crazy.
