“Couldn't ask for more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

We took a spur of the moment trip up to kennebunk in may of 2011 with our 6 month puppy Cabot. We were extremely lucky to have found the houndstooth inn with a vacant room for the weekend. With it's close proximity to seasonal dog friendly beaches, dog parks, and the village, it made for a relaxing weekend and a great atmosphere.

The owners are true dog lovers and we didn't felt more at home, us or Cabot. The owners supplied us with a lot of information about local eateries, shops, and parks; all of which were pet friendly. The rates were well priced and included wonderful breakfasts that kept us going well into the afternoon. We are so glad we stayed at the houndstooth inn and hope we are lucky enough to get a room again this year.

It is hard to put a review into words to really capture the amazing experience the Hounds tooth Inn has to offer. My husband and I traveled from Long Island to stay at Randee and Norm's Beautiful bed and breakfast during President's week. We arrived Thursday afternoon and left Saturday morning. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. I was thrilled to have found a b&b that allowed dogs, for we have a year old Aussie, who enjoyed herself as much as we did! Randee greeted us upon our arrival and gave us the tour of the grounds, the farmhouse, and gave us recommendations on where to eat and travel during our stay. The Inn is conveniently centrally located between great dog beaches and dog friendly ports so we were able to get some great grub and local beer as well as walk Blue in town. Since we were there during Maine's off season we were lucky to have a quieter visit. Randee is a fantastic host and cook! She had granola and yogurt ready int the fridge with cucumber cottage cheese with lemon pepper seasoned cucumber to use as crackers. The coffee is unbelievable and there is a wide array of tea for tea drinkers. Our first breakfast was a scrumptious vegetable eggs and cheese skillet sprinkled with turkey ham. Our last breakfast was a delicious French toast souffle with cranberries, oranges, apples and drizzled with blueberry syrup. On the side, Randee prepared spicy sausage patties. Her breakfasts surpassed many of the acclaimed breakfast establishments we like to eat at on the Island. The king's Court, where we happily resided, was immaculate, beautifully decorated and well lit, with an electric stove, a small sink and fridge, private and large full bathroom and luxurious king sized bed. Randee and Norm are so personable and friendly and we truly enjoyed our morning chats at breakfast! They are well known in the surrounding towns of Kennebunkport and Cape porpoise as many locals we ran into were singing their praises. We were sad to leave but will be more than happy to return.!

We have been going to the kennebunk area for many years and wish we had found the Houndstooth Inn 8 years ago when it opened. the owners are warm and friendly and make everyone, especially the dog, feel welcome. it is a great place and well equipped.

We spent 2 nights in October with our doberman and the stay could not have been better. We were all made very comfortable. The breakasts were great, so much food couln't eat lunch. Local dog park, Rachael Carlson Reserve and beaches open to dogs at this time of year made things easy for Logan. Hope to be back come spring.

We stayed here for a weekend to celebrate a 50th birthday. Our 2 saluki dogs always travel with us. The dogs were more than welcome which made our stay. Thanks so much !

We wanted to take a road trip up to maine with our hound mix dog Maddie and we found this place from trip advisor. Randee and Norman are wonderful hosts who are friendly and very attentive. They not only love people, they also love dogs, which makes them good people. They provide a comfortable place to stay and lots of treats and pepto for vomiting and diareha dogs who drink too salt water from the beach. Breakfast is very good. Randee is quite creative in the kitchen. We are hoping to make another trip up next summer.

Randee was the most wonderful innkeeper - her breakfasts were just unbelievable. She left loads of goodies to munch on during the day - couldn't have been better!
The property is beautifully decorated, comfortable and in keeping with the surroundings.
Don't miss this one!!!
