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... More

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... More

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.

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...

We reserved one of the suites about 6 weeks prior to our stay, spoke with the owners to confirm, paid half deposit, and received a confirmation email.

HoundsTooth, Owner at Hounds Tooth Inn, responded to this review

After eleven years of bookings we had our first 1 day overlap in rooms. We were able to offer an alternative room with a larger bed. We did express our apologies several times, but the focus was on a iphone search even though you acknowledged us when we took you to our courtyard to stretch your 2 dogs legs. The... More

The grounds are immaculate and incredibly user friendly. Lights come on automatically indoors and out. The dogs comfort is very important to Randy. Her breakfasts keep you going until dinner! Her suggestions are dead on and she knows and loves her community! Absolutely wonderful vacation.

We've stayed at several wonderful B&Bs but Hounds Tooth Inn was by far the best. Our room was large, beautiful, clean and dog-friendly. Randee and Norm (who unfortunately was away most of our visit) made us feel extremely welcome. Randee gave us abundant helpful advice about things to do, good restaurants, and places that were open to dogs. We stayed... More

We thought we just needed to "get away" for a night....but found a qualitatively better "peace and quiet" when we stumbled across The Hounds Tooth Inn.

My wife and I like to travel with our lab-mix rescue dog, but we have run up against all sorts of limitations on pet size, room location, etc., from other so called "pet friendly" lodgings.

“There are only 4 rooms, and a telephone call to the inn will give you the chance to discuss your needs with the proprietors. The "kings court" room is convenient yet secluded.”
