Pet Policy: One (1) dog (up to 35 pounds) may be allowed in our pet friendly designated room. Our pet friendly room may only be occupied by guests with a pet. Please do not bring your pet if it does not have impeccable behavior. Guests will be asked to leave if their pet is a nuisance.

Service Animals: Under the ADA/Maine law, owners of public accommodations are not required to allow emotional support animals or pets. The Trellis House properties including Blue Shutters Inn and Studios do not accept pets including emotional support animals (except in our designated pet room).

Pet Fee: Additional  $25 per night 


The following rules apply and will be enforced:

  • Pet generally may not be left unattended in the room unless crated.

  • At no time are pets allowed in or around common areas or breakfast porch during meals. They may join you in the garden or outside sitting areas on-leash. 

  • Guests must be reachable on their mobile phone in the event of barking and return to the Inn immediately upon request.  

  •  Pet must be leashed at all times when coming to/from the room.

  • Clean up is a must, inside and out. If your pet has an accident in the room notify someone right away. A $150 professional cleaning fee plus full replacement cost of soiled rugs/linens, etc. will be applied if we cannot address the issue through housekeeping.

  • Damage to the room or Inn is the owners responsibility. If your pet soils a rug, carpet, linen, etc. or damages furniture or window screens or other property you will be charged full replacement value plus a 20% inconvenience charge.
