Dog friendly?

Dog friendly?

My husband and I are planning a trip to Boothbay Harbor this summer. Ideally, we'd like to take our dog with us. Any suggestions on dog friendly accommodations and beaches? Thanks.

Hi mhg,

The best place to contact for all your vacationing needs is the Boothbay Harbor Chamber of commerce website. Just google and it'll come up. The site will provide tons of info on accomodations, sights to see, restaurants, events, maps, directions, etc. And I'm sure you could call them to inquire about specific places that accept animals.

Re: beaches. There really aren't any typical beaches in the Boothbay Harbor area other than very small, mostly rocky ones at Ocean Pt and on Southport Island. They're located at Grimes Cove and Hendricks Head Light and you can only go to them at low tide.

If you're looking for typical sandy beaches you can drive 45 minutes to either Reid State Park or Popham beaches. These are just down peninsula's from Bath and Brunswick and are beautiful and south of BBH.

To the north is Pemaquid Beach, also about a 45 minute drive. This beach is a little smaller but excellent for toddlers and small children.

If you have any more specific questions after you've checked out the Chamber site, post again and I'll try and help.

Good luck :).
