2010 Kudos: Now
on Trip Advisor
Reflections of 2009: As 2010 rolls
full blast into our 7th yr’s high season of owning & running
’Hounds Tooth Inn’, the adrenaline rush we get when meeting
all our canine guests who, ever so proudly, brought their parents to
share in their special holidays, continues to ring our hearts with excitement.
Due to spring arriving early April, we have had the privilege of entertaining
an increase of guests. We are very much looking forward to adding more
stories of your visit in our memory book this yr.
We have referred all our guests to make a review about us on Trip
advisor and appreciate their comments. As all our guests promise
to make comments, we realize that once you depart from here, you quickly
shift back into your 'high gear' routine. Please check us out and come
experience for yourself 'a home away from home'.
Kudos: As we proceed into 2009, the Inn has certainly enriched
our lives , having brought to us new friendships. Our commonality being
family, those of the 4 legged types.
We face challenging years ahead, but know that even if we see less in
numbers, our memories will be dearer with those who pass through our

to present… welcoming the comment., they asked us to add 2 more

Wow, we couldn’t be more thrilled with our guest responses about
our Inn and hospitality. We love offering what comes naturally to us.
Many thanks for your patronage, but most of all, letting us share your
pooches during your stay. Here’s to our 4th season and giving
us the opportunity to meet the most wonderful canine families and those
that want to enjoy them too. It’s all for the love of animals.
** Thank you so much for your world class Customer service
and hospitality. The Hounds Tooth Inn was such a “great find”
for us to spend our vacation in Maine. Your attention to details and

for the great breakfasts and early morning coffee. We look forward to
our net trip ‘Down East”…………………..

** I prefer the big room ‘Kings Court’ but will understand
if it is taken. The idea that I can stay in such a welcoming inn when
traveling with my dog is worth moving to any of your rooms…Ina
** It is WE should thank YOU!!! The Hound's Tooth Inn is magical, peaceful,
fun and neither Hamish nor I wanted to leave. He was a bit dramatic
on the drive home. Curled next to me on the front seat, every once in
a while he would heave a big sigh as if to say," Oh woe is me,
you are taking me from my pack and my little piece of heaven, but such
is my life. I never would have found you, Gleeson and Issi if it weren't
for Hamish. And, you wouldn't be where you are without Sinbad…
Serena & Hamish
** Just wanted to say again how much we enjoyed our stay at the Hounds
Tooth. We couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable stay. The property

Janice and Brian
** Beth, Hogan, Samantha & I would like to thank you for our stay.
Your Inn far exceeded our expectations. We will be back for another

your genuine love for animals. We enjoyed our stay at your Inn more

decorated and very spacious. Toro never had so much fun. Our plans are
to return this coming fall and stay a bit longer. See you really soon……………….Phyllis,
Vin & Toro
** Exceeded our expectations would be an understatement. You went out
of your way to make us and our puppy, Willie, feel at home. A great
place and we’ll be sure to return. Jen & Abram

stayed forever!! Samson had the best time of all……………..Sheila,

recommend you to others. Thanks again……………….Joni,

food!!...Leslie & Tom, Finley, Keeva and Mattie
** Thank you for sharing your wonderful Inn. It is neat to see all the
restorations & how you maintained the integrity of this farmhouse
history. You made all of us feel welcome and we enjoyed your helpful
suggestions, the amazing breakfasts and the ‘sinful” treats
in the fridge. Dewey had fun at the beaches & parks. Kennebunk is
a beautiful area to vacation. We are now well rested and relaxed thanks
to your “over the top” hospitality. When we come back to
visit this will be our #1 choice!! Dewey will be sure to recommend your
dog friendly Inn to all his friends. He gives this 6 paws for rating!!
Thanks……………….. Dewey, Al, Darlene
** The town of Kennebunkport is definitely quite fine. The lobster stew
and chowder has made my cholesterol rise in this short time. The rocky
beaches, cute stores and friendly faces has marked this spot as one
of my favorite places, But it is the Hounds Tooth Inn where Mojito has
made her friends. That makes us not want our vacation to end!! Thank
you Randee and Norm……………….Mojito,
Gisselle & Joey
** We loved staying at your B&B! From the moment we walked in till
the morning we left, we felt like we were with a long time, great friends.

with cozy warmth. Hope to see you next year. Love……………………….

with you again next year. Our ‘wee’ people loved it also.

II: We have been touched by such warm responses from our guests via
email, cards and comments in our guest book, that I thought is was time
to update: 10/10/06, Hounds Tooth Inn completing it’s 3 yr in
Randee and Norm:
We thoroughly enjoyed the warmth, charm and comfort of your beautifully
restored Inn. The King’s Court suite was especially private and
spacious, and decorated with class and sophistication. The convenience
of the large open preserve just across the street (for walking and exercising
our canine companions) was perfect. The gourmet breakfast, served in
the large open kitchen reserved for guests, was just delicious. Next
time we promise to bring a quieter alarm clock, so you will not have
to appear at our door in your pajamas! Kind Regards, Lynn and Bill,
**Randee and Norm, Thank you for your gracious hospitality. Hounds
Tooth Inn is a perfect retreat. We will come back! *hugs* Cathie, Ted
**Jim and I enjoyed our last visit very much. It was a perfect ending
to our August vacation. Here are some photos from the Cape Porpoise
islands, the foliage at the end of our road, and last but not least,
wonderful dog friends. Looking forward to our next visit. Linda, Jim
**Hi Stephanie, Jim, Beth, Cheryl, Randee, and Norm,
I'm sure you all are as sad as we are to be home and away from the Hounds
Tooth. We had such a great time visiting Kennebunkport and exploring
the area, but what a treat to have a place to be excited about coming
home to at the end of the day. Bella, Mike and I had a blast meeting
you all and your extended puppy families, and we wish you many more
puppy friendly vacations and guest stays! Take care. Amyra, Mike and
Such a great time. We were so happy to be able to travel with Bella.
Your Inn is beautiful, Your hospitality is rare and your food is delicious.
Thank your, Amyra & Mike
** Wonderful! The most tremendous traveling experience. We loved Wonderview!!!!!
Caleb and Alec ran and ran until they fell asleep under an apple tree.
I was so tired, I wanted to join them. We did run into Jim and Stephanie.
How fun!!!!!! The 1st floor is the suite for us, and the king feather
bed is great. I told my boys we are coming back, and they seemed happy.
**Dear Randee and Norm:
Jon, Ziggy and I spent a wonderful week at Hounds Tooth Inn. From making
sure I connected to work on my laptop, to recommending Ziggy friendly
dining, and great walks ( so we could continue eating your yummy
breakfasts)-- you were great hosts. Our room was comfortable and extremely
clean. Each day we felt more relaxed. We met such nice guests and their
pets--but then again animal lovers are always special. To say
The Hounds Tooth Inn is "pet friendly" is an understatement;
you are truly "doggie centered". For those of us who wouldn't
(couldn't) leave our pets behind for the week, it was such a gift. With
such as yours, there is no need to leave your best friend home. We didn't
have to worry about a thing--except ending our vacation. Thanks so much,
Edee, Jon and Ziggy too.
What a wonderful week. Not only are you dog friendly but dogs-centered!
Randee and Norm, you made us feel so welcome. A big thank you!!! Edee
**Randee & Norm:
Wanted to touch base and say thank you for your hospitality.
We arrived back safely last night and wanted to let you know that as
much as we love our bed at home; we LOVED the bed in the Dukes Den.
I slept so well and peaceful. We really noticed the difference. The
cliff walk yesterday was such a great suggestion - it was so picturesque.
Now it is back to the rat race. Have a great day. Warm regards, Shannon
We have stayed at many “B&B’s” and this by far
was the best! The room was perfect; bed so comfortable, shower even
had hot water and of course the yummy food each morning. This was our
first visit to Maine and really loved it! Warm Regards, Shannon &
**We have never felt more welcomed with our four legged kids. See you
again soon. Beth, Jack, Sam& Hogan
**Our first trip to Maine after a 10 year absence & what a great
place to find, especially with our Dalmatian. Not so much a mere pet
friendly Inn but a pet enthusiastic home. Randee, you will be our first
stop on our next visit to Maine. Cheers, Mark, Lisa & Buckingham
**Your lovely Inn was a truly gracious home for us during our 4 day
stay. Full of love and happy dogs. We hope to return soon. 4 Paws: Kay,
Bob, Michelle, Samantha & Beethoven

by Randee!! We found the Hounds Tooth to be a very cheerful, warm &
homey Inn that is clean & tastefully decorated. Look forward to
staying longer next time. Pat & Paul
**Simply 5 star all around! Best of class in hospitality and accommodations.
Wonderful atmosphere. Bill, Bev and P.J.
the list goes on and on. As a retired art teacher I used to boast that
my students were the best in the school. Now I say, ‘Our guests
are the best any one could ever dream of’. Thanks to all of you
for giving us sooo much pleasure and making this venture sooo much fun.
Randee and Norm, Issi and Gleeson. The dream has come true. And it’s
all due to you, Sinbad
