At last. A Pet-Friendly Inn by the Sea.

Tongues and tails are wagging about the fantastic experience guests can have in stunning, serene coastal Maine when they book rooms at pet-friendly Craignair Inn! Dogs love the fresh air, sea breezes, and endless views surrounding the beautiful inn. The Clark Island Preserve beaches are just perfect for bonding with a four-legged friend away from the crowds. For humans, the excitement of staying steps away from trails that wind through Clark Island to the old coastal quarries is a real treat! Guests also enjoy all of the perks of being close to the restaurants, shops, and galleries of nearby Rockland, Rockport, and Camden while staying tucked away in near seclusion at this picturesque inn by the sea.

traveling with a dog in Maine
Planning a dog-friendly vacation in coastal Maine couldn’t be easier! Imagine starting the day with an early walk to watch the sunrise with the distant chug of lobster boats wishing you a bright, sunny morning. The sight of gulls swooping over the cove at midday is sure to catch your dog’s attention as you play a game of catch-and-retrieve on the sand at low tide. After dusk, curl up with those soft paws you love as you join a small group around the Craignair Inn’s fire on beach in Maine
