In 1825 the Storer brothers sold 17 acres and 42 rods of this land to shipbuilder, Joel Larrabee Jr., who later lost it to Kennebunk Bank.   The bank then sold 15 acres and 53 rods in 1828  to farmer/joiner  Samuel Simpson. In 1843 Simpson sold 2 acres to farmer John Drown.   It is between this date and 1856 when this present house appeared on this site.   The house is  Federal in shape with  Italinate trim detailing the  exterior.   Visually, the details of the house appears  to be older  than 1843.   Around this time period Drown gave a mortgage to William Lord, which was redeemed.   This money may have been used to build this house.  The land and house passed through various owners and property sold off.   In 2001, Randee and Norm Perkins purchased this home on an acre and remodeled the farm house and converted the interior of the barn for the intent of opening a pet friendly B&B . Few changes were made to the charming exterior of the structures. Extensive updates to the interior were done while preserving all original details.  As proud owners we welcome you to share our comfortable and homey lodging and if persuaded we could share stories and pictures of our 1½ years experience renovating this 'labor of love'.       click here for articles about the Hounds Tooth Inn

While living in England for two years and adopting our Otterhound and Welsh Hounds  there, we found it much easier to travel with pets.  This made our experience and travels more memorable and upon returning to the states, Colorado,with our hounds we decided to relocate and open an Inn offering the same opportunities. Our sign features Gleeson, our Welsh Hound from Wales, England, who actually hunted in the Conway Valley. Presently we have two Welsh Hounds, Gleeson & Issi.





Looking  forward to your visit,
