About Tina Kelly


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!

Excellent vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We always have a great week here! This year we rented both cottages and my parents came up with us. The cottages are very cute, tidy, and in a great location...right near all of the fun of the beach and pier! Tina does a great job of making everyone feel welcome and always has good suggestions of places to try and things to do. Overall, 5 stars!

I would recommend this rental

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay that is VERY dog friendly, where the host is accommodating, friendly and helpful, where the beach is within a very short walk, where there is more to do than shop and lay on the beach, then this is the place for you.

The cottage is small, but there is enough space for four adults and a couple of dogs. My husband and I, our lab mix and min-pin had more than enough space. We walked to the beach in the morning and evening with the girls and took them for walks on the trail at the end of the street during the day. We also biked the trails, which go for many miles in either direction. There is plenty of shopping, hiking, beaching and just about any other beach vacation activity you can think of within just a few miles and many of them you can walk or bike to without a problem.

I would recommend this rental and hope to visit again in the future. It was the most relaxing, comfortable place to stay that we have rented in quite a long time. Thank you so much, Tina, for everything.

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)

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!
