We recently stayed at The Hounds Tooth Inn in Kennebunk, Maine with our "girls" during the Christmas Prelude Celebration. For people who like to vacation with their dogs, this is the place! Not only was host Randee most welcoming and gracious, she knows the area and where to send you. The inn in immaculate, the breakfasts outstanding, rooms lovely, and... More

We arrived late and without a reservation yet Randee and Norm greeted us with warmth and no fuss. We were immediately made to feel at home. The downstairs suite (King's Court) has two very large rooms and ensuite. It is part of the original 1843 farmhouse. The building may be old but the facilities are not. There's a large guest...

We had such an enjoyable time over a weekend with Innkeeper Randy and her husband. They are the most welcoming, endearing folks we have met in a long time. Although we did not bring our four-legged friends along, next year we definitely will! Rooms are lovely and spacious. Decor is fun. Breakfasts are the best. Thanks for a wonderful time!

The Hound's Tooth Inn and its owners Randee and Norm were all that we had hoped for and more. The restored farm property is pastoral and lovely and the rooms spacious, charming and elegant. The inn and property are both impeccably kept. Norm and Randee provided a very warm welcome and Randee's breakfast was amazing- a real treat! The conversation... More

This was our first stay at the Hound's Tooth, but it certainly won't be our last. Owner's Randee and Norm understand a profound truth about pet-lovers: People tend to bond much more quickly and deeply through their dogs. The atmosphere at the inn is about as friendly as we've ever experienced anywhere. Randee knows every pet-friendly restaurant and attraction in... More

This is a pleasant, convenient place run by especially nice and helpful people. Nice country setting, lovely room which was quite comfortable. Nice breakfast. We stayed in a room called "Kings Court" on the ground floor.
