We found this place online through bring fido.com We were in town for a wedding and really wanted to bring out dog with us. We arrived a bit late 8:30pm. We rang the call box and Shelli was there moments later with a big smile and called us by name! They are more than just dog tolerant they are dog friendly and excited. The first thing she said to our husky, Stoli was "let her out of the car and stretch her legs, I want to meet her" We went into the office to check in. Everything was all set we got out key and details about leaving her in the room while we were wedding...they even offered to take her out if we got delayed. There is a small store/lunch counter/camp store on property called the Tourist Trap. We went there for breakfast perfect for a quick coffee and breakfast sandwich and a few items you might need. Very reasonable prices for breakfast. We were there three nights and stayed in the motel section. The rooms have been recently painted, cable tv, mini fridge and fantastic hot water with great water pressure. The motel rooms are a typical basic motel room. We do not need more than this. We hope to come back and rent one of the cottages next time for a get away. There is a campground out back with a pool. The pool was not open as it was cold and end of the season. Everyone in the campground was wonderful and very friendly as we walked our dog around the loop we met many nice people and four legged friends. They do not provide every day housekeeping for the safety of dogs on site (so they don't get out). You can exchange your towels at the office each morning if you would like. We didn't need to as two towels for each person were plenty. They were much more plush then normal motel towels. We had a fantastic time, we were close to Ogunquit, Kennibunkport and even Portland but not in the middle of it all. We will be back!
