You and your loyal four-legged travel companion are long overdue for an Ogunquit getaway. This seaside town on Maine’s southern coast has fresh sea air, cute clapboard cafes and a pet-loving community. Spend days walking the cliffs, sniffing the sea breeze and savoring quality time with your best friend at one of these pet-friendly pads – bookable with Culture Trip.

Dock your dog in the pet-friendly rooms at the Admiral’s Inn, and while you treat yourself to the dry sauna, massage services and soothing seasonal pools, your dog can soak up the sun on your suite’s semi-private outdoor patio. When you need to get moving (or find a puppy potty), the short stroll into the center of Ogunquit village has cafes, boutique shops and dog-friendly restaurants (and plenty of places to tinkle).

Footbridge Beach Motel

Though the Footbridge Beach Motel kindly asks that you leave your cats, canaries and kangaroos at home, your pup has a golden ticket to stay. Close to the famed Footbridge Beach, this motel is just one of the many dog-friendly establishments in the area. It’s a short walk to Ogunquit Dog Park, which has separate play spaces for large and small dogs. You can also spoil your hound with a new haircut at Waggerstown and a chewy souvenir from Junebug’s Beach House.

Share the quintessential New England B&B experience with your doting pup in the Westport room at the Blue Shutters Inn and Studios. A separate entrance will give your shy dog a discreet place to settle in while you ready the frisbees and tennis balls for a trip to Little Beach. Take in the scenery with a relaxing 1mi (2km) walk on the Marginal Way, strolling hand in leash as you scout a lovely spot for belly rubs by the beach.

The Dunes on the Waterfront understands the challenges of traveling with pets, so it would like to throw you a bone. Feel free to let Fido get sand, mud and other unmentionables rolled into its coat; the hotel will provide pet towels to dry it off after a bath in the outdoor pet shower. It’ll also toss you a cozy blanket that your pup can curl up in while you make a quick run to the Egg & I Restaurant to pick up breakfast to go.

Ne’r Beach Motel

While your cat may not take too well to the beach, it’ll be just fine cuddled up in the Ne’r Beach Motel. Let it take a long cat nap so that you can spend the day on Moody Beach. Race back to feed it, then take the kids out for a night of minigolf and arcade games at Wonder Mountain Fun Park, just a five-minute walk from the motel.

    After a long day of driving up and down the Maine coast, you and your canine copilot will appreciate the quietness of a private cabin at 2 River Road Inn and Cottages. It’s close to Interstate 95 and right off US-1, making it easy to pull in, park and rest those sore paws. Each cabin features a kitchenette, but your pup would agree that the famous relish at Flo’s Hot Dogs and the handmade waffle cones at the Ice Cream House are worth sitting and staying for.

    Sea Turn Motel

    When’s the last time you snapped a few stunning selfies with your dog? The Sea Turn Motel’s location near picturesque Long Sands and Short Sands beaches will help you fill up your camera roll. Toss a ball into the water and snap a few photos of your pup splashing in the waves. Dry off back at the hotel and take a 1mi (2km) walk down to Nubble Point, where the island lighthouse will act as a perfect backdrop for a glamour shot.

    York Harbor Inn

    Your pooch will spend the 15-minute ride from Ogunquit to York Harbor Inn with its head hanging out of the window, its tongue battling the sea breeze. After dropping your bags in the pet-friendly Harbor Crest suite, you can ask the concierge to map out the best pet-friendly beaches and parks in the area. You’ll also be handed a few treats and disposable trash bags that’ll come in handy when you two begin your doggie vacation with a stroll across the cliffside trail.
