You want to go on a Maine vacation, but putting Fido in a kennel is a pain! Good news, lots of Maine resorts and lodging properties are now pet-friendly. You can have your trip and bring your four-legged friend too. There are many friendly Maine bed and breakfasts, inns, hotels and motels that allow dogs. There are pet friendly campgrounds and cottages that will also accommodate your family dog or cat during your camping trip to Maine.
Some even have pet friendly packages that include special treats and maybe even a dog bed for your pet.
Those dog days of summer in Maine are even better when you can bring man's best friend to these dog friendly hotels throughout the state. There are several dog-friendly areas and dog parks in Maine, where your pet can run and play in the fresh Maine air. Area beaches usually allow dogs year-round, except in summer months when there may be certain time restrictions on when they are allowed on the sand. Dogs will love running along the soft sand or fetching a ball in the cool waters.
Many hotels and innkeepers are happy to provide pet owners with maps and names of local pet-friendly businesses, beaches and walking areas. Pets are a welcome addition to many Maine towns, and many store fronts and shop owners will even leave water or food bowls outside their door for those long, hot summer days.
Here are several Maine lodging properties that are happy to accommodate you and your pets! Be sure to read the fine print before you make your paw prints as some pet restrictions may apply (some inns may accept one pet or only small dogs, etc.).
