When you travel with your Best Friend it 's tremendous to find well-appointed dog friendly hotels that make you and your dog happy; The Colony Hotel is one of those special Maine finds and welcomes dogs of all sizes. Situated in Kennebunkport, with spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean, an endless green lawn and organic gardens, you and your dog can put your paws up or seek adventure.

This historical hotel has the charm of yesteryear combined with all the modern hotel comforts. The ocean-side porch offers a tranquil setting to soak up the view over the heated salt water pool and beyond. The Colony 's private surf beach gives you and your tail wagging buddy a chance to catch some rays or cool off in the waves.

If you 're looking for a change of scene, it 's only a short stroll into Kennebunkport 's village where you can sniff out the best trinkets and treats. Later in the day, if your mate is looking to get some shut-eye while you dine out, the dogster can settle in to their hotel suite on their complimentary dog blanket and dream about the next day 's excursion. Your dog can sleep peacefully knowing that the hotel will call you on your cellphone if they are requesting room service.

At the end of the season, the last weekend literally goes to the dogs. The Colony Hotel 's annual season closing "Dog Lovers" weekend attracts dogs and their peeps, from near and far, to come and wag out the season in true party style with 4-pawed action in the pool (usually reserved for their 2-legged owners) and plenty of doggy social hour time.
