This is a clean, convenient, welcoming B&B, whether you have dogs or not; however, if you have dogs, the Hounds Tooth Inn is perfect! We arrived late at night to find a plate of brownies, a jar of dog treats, and milk in the refrigerator with a note on the kitchen counter instructing us to make ourselves at home. We did. The next morning, we enjoyed a delicious hot breakfast on the outdoor deck and our dog played with other well-behaved canine guests. Our hosts went out of their way to find out about and support our lodging preferences, as well as our vacation interests. We felt comfortable and well-taken care of the entire trip. The grounds are beautifully and thoughtfully maintained. Our ground floor room was huge, clean, quiet and very comfortable. The location of the hotel was good for us--a safe, quiet area, not too far off the freeway and not in the congested Kennebunkport village, so it was a convenient base for exploring the area. We stayed at the HTI almost a year ago and I've been meaning to write this well-deserved review ever since. This is not just a great B&B where you can bring your dog(s), it's a great B&B for dogs and for their people.

Randee and Norm made the three of us -- my wife, our dog, and me -- feel at home right away: they greeted us at the door, gave us a tour of the beautiful grounds, helped us with our bags, and led us to our suite. They assured us that our dog was welcome everywhere except the kitchen, and brought us to a fenced area where their their dog and ours had a nice romp. The Inn is located in scenic Kennebunk, a short drive from a variety of attractions: dog-friendly beaches, hiking, great restaurants, scenery, and shopping. Our room was spacious, with a sitting area and private bath. The decor was charming. Breakfast was served family-style; it was homemade and delicious every morning, chock full of vegetables from the Innkeeper's garden. We enjoyed visiting with Randee and the other guests, and talking with them about our adventures from the past day and plans for the next. We also shared some late afternoons on the grounds together as the sun went down. We enjoyed every moment of our week at the Hounds Tooth Inn and would recommend it to anyone visiting southern Maine.

We were greeted in the driveway by Randi & Norm. We then were introduced to Keegan their dog and felt welcomed immediately. The Inn was quaint and clean and extremely dog friendly. Our animals had a great time. Both owners were great and treated us like family and we were sad to leave. We stayed in the suite and there was plenty of room for us and our two small dogs. I would recommend this Inn for anyone who wants to travel with their pets and feel comfortable that they are truly welcome. It's also very conveniently located for anyone to stay even if you are not bringing your pet. The owner's are very good with providing things to do and places to see. Breakfast was delightful.

The Hound’s Tooth Inn is a delightful bed and breakfast hotel in Kennebunk. Randee and Norm, the proprietors, are very gracious people who work very hard to assure that their guests are happy. The breakfasts which Randee prepares are outstanding including wonderful French toast, pancakes, omelets, home-made jam, fruit, vegetables from her garden and many other delicacies. Due to heart problems, I have to be on a special low fat, low cholesterol diet. Randee made sure that everything I was served was either vegan, non-fat dairy or based on egg whites. Everything was delicious. She makes sure to accommodate all dietary preferences. The rooms were large, pleasant, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The Hound’s Tooth is a dog-friendly hotel. Our Westie (Harry) and all the other canine guests loved it. There was plenty of room on the extensive grounds for us to walk our best friend. We stayed at the Hound’s Tooth Inn in August of 2013 and visited again in August of 2014. We had a wonderful time during each visit.
