About Tina Kelly

Hello,

My name is Tina Kelly, and I am the owner of the OOB Cozy Cottages in Old Orchard Beach, Maine.

Have you ever wanted to take your pups to the beach for a week, but have been discouraged by weight & size restrictions, deposits and rules? Me too!

I ONLY rent to folks with dogs. Period. I want you to be able to bring your pup(s) to the beach, enjoy the Cozy Cottages, fenced yards, no deposits, no weight or size restrictions and no rigid rules. I want you to feel like you're 'home' and know that you AND your pup(s) are on vacation and welcomed.

The Cottages are located on a dead-end street, with a one-mile walking trail (part of the Eastern Trail), as well as walking distance to the fenced in dog park, beach, pier, rides and so much more.

We aren't the "taj-mahal" but we are cozy and we LOVE dogs!

Consider us!

Woofs & Wags,

Tina

OOB Cozy Cottages Is A Jewel!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage for a week in July '09, along with our 6 year old son and 2 large dogs. We could not be more pleased with our experience there. Tina and Ric are very friendly hosts, ready to help with anything if needed. The cottage was on a quiet residential street, yet was still a very quick walk to the beach (even with dogs, kid, towels, etc). The neighbors were friendly, and my son was able to bike up and down the street safely. My dogs loved running on some nearby trails, and also LOVED swimming in the ocean in the mornings and evenings. This is no doubt a dog and kid friendly place! Not being a person that is content to lay on a beach all day, I was worried that we would run out of things to do. However, that was not the case. We ran out of days- there is still so much to do there! We will definitely be returning! Thanks so much Tina and Ric for your hospitality!

THEY LOVE DOGS!!

  • 5 of 5

You MUST stay here!!

You hear of places that are "pet friendly" only to find out you are limited by size, exorbitant deposits and ridiculous rules? NOT HERE! Tina and Ryan LOVE your dog(s)!

The Cottages have fenced in yards so you can feel comforted that your pup is safe. BBQ grills, clean, comfortable and cute and walking distance to everything!

Located on a dead end street with a long "off leash" trail nearby, plus a 10 minute stroll to the beach, pier, dog park - simply perfect!!

Your well behaved pup does not need to be crated, and you can enjoy a day at the beach while your pup stays at the air conditioned cottage.

We were totally thrilled! Fully stocked with toilet paper, paper towels, dishes, pots & pans, outdoor table and seating. They've thought of everything!

Perfect vacation indeed!! We WiLL be back every summer!!

Thanks a bunch!

Jim, Sallie and our 3 pups!

(A Golden, A lab mix and a Hound)

FANTASTIC VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at OOB Cozy Cottages! Tina was there to welcome us and offer snuggles to our pup, Remmi. We loved the accommodations - everything was just right for the two of us. The size of the cottage is perfect! Location & proximity to OOB, trails and tons of adventures was just the right thing for a get-a-way. We visited the beach, ventured to Portland, sampled tons of local restaurants and just had a fantastic time! We especially enjoyed morning and nightly walks on the trail at the end of the street- having access to that was great for our dog to get in some exercise!

Fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about our week! Tina was so hospitable and just a great person. Upon our arrival we realized there was no blender there, she had one there for us within about an hour. Walk to the beach is just far enough not hear all the noise. Our two labs loved swimming every morning. Thank you Tina and crew!

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our stay. Tina was there to greet us and made us feel right at home. The dogs loved the yard and their morning walks down the path at the end of the street. We did not want to leave. Thanks Tina!
