I wanted to find a spot for myself, my husband, three adult children, two spouses, one infant, and two dogs to spend some time together for the weekend. Access to beaches and shopping was a must. Hounds Tooth Inn sounded perfect, and it was. The place was even more spacious and prettier than I'd expected, and our hosts simply could not have been more eager to make our stay an enjoyable one. The guests' lodgings include the entire antique home, while the owners have redone the attached barn for themselves. The fridge, microwave, and toaster that the website mentions are not crammed in some corner, but are part of a large, eat-in, country kitchen that is there entirely for the guests' use. For our group, which rented all the rooms, it was like having the big, family home back again, only no one had to serve as host (or mow the lawn or do any upkeep!). There are so many fun little pet-related bits of art, trivia, and memorabilia scattered around the house that my kids all thought it'd be a great place for a scavenger hunt. Our hosts welcomed the dogs with treats, and even provided us with parking passes for the beach. We had a great time and would certainly consider another stay at Hound's Tooth Inn.
