The Inn by the Sea, Cape Elizabeth, Maine

Among a growing number of dog-friendly accommodation options in the US, the Inn by the Sea sets itself apart by offering dog-friendly accommodation combined with support of locally made dog products.

When you book their Inncredible Pets package you and your dog receive:

  • a minimum of 2 nights in a single bedroom suite
  • a dog toy that is made in Maine
  • a personalised LL Bean dog bed (these beds are known for their quality and durability and LL Bean is a flagship retailer in Maine)
  • a 30-minute in-room dog massage to help your dog work out the kinks of the trip
  • a nightly entree from the Inn’s pet menu
  • a nightly pet turndown service that rewards you dog with a locally made dog treat

This package currently starts at US$472.21 per night for a garden suite (higher rates for a spa suite or at peak times).

The Inn is located on popular Crescent Beach which does not allow dogs in the summer months of April – October.  Inn staff can advise you on beaches that allow dogs during these times.
