Traveling with your Dog?

Traveling with your Dog?

It doesn’t get much better than planning a trip with your pooch!  

Road trip adventures and vacations are even more fun and special when you’re able to share them with your four-legged family member. However, sometimes the thought of bringing a pet along on a trip can be daunting. If you plan it right, your trip with your pooch can be pulled off perfectly. That’s where we can help. Not only does Camden make a great destination for a vacation, but we have an abundance of natural scenery to explore, amazing restaurants to enjoy and our hotel is dog friendly!…. All of that means that staying with us is a fantastic option for a trip with your four-legged friend. Here’s some ideas to help your pooch during a vacation:

  • Bring chews and your dogs favorite toy to keep him/her occupied while you’re relaxing in your room.
  • Bring a familiar blanket from home or, if possible, bring your dog’s crate. This will help create a comfortable environment for him/her. 
  • Stick to your usual routines that you have at home.
  • Our hotel is located near some great dog-friendly activities- take your dog on a hike on one of the trails at  Camden Hill’s State Park.
  • Right down Bay View Street is Laite Beach Park. This low key and relaxing beach overlooks Camden Harbor and is a great place to cool off after a day of exploring the Camden area.
  • There are two dog parks in the area: 
  1. PAWS Dog Park located at 146 Camden St. in Rockport 
  2. Thomaston Dog Park at 21 Dwight St in Thomaston.
