Acadia Woods Kennel
is a modern full service pet care facility, centrally located in the small village of Town Hill on Mount Desert Island.  Sited in a quiet evergreen forest, we strive to be counted among the best kennels in Maine. Acadia Woods Kennel was established in 1996 by the present owner. Acadia Woods Kennel is a clean, safe, secure environment. Our staff provides for each petís individual needs.


Dog Boarding Overnight

Each dog has its own private indoor/outdoor kennel. The inside space is 21.5 sq ft. The outside space is 60 sq ft. We can accommodate multiple large dogs in our 27 sq ft. inside and 72 sq ft. outside kennels. Both indoor and outdoor portions of the kennel are covered by chain link fencing to prevent climbers from escaping.

The outdoor portion of the run is covered by a roof so it stays cool in the summer. During cold weather, garage doors enclose the outdoor area which allows it to be used year round. During the heating season, the dogs are kept comfortable with radiant heat. During the summer, two large fans draw cool air into the kennel.

The dogs are fed twice a day and given time in the play yards twice a day. They have fresh deep well water at all times. Pet Cotsô are supplied for their comfort. We are feeding Precise in the kennel now.

Boarders from out of town may leave the kennel to join their families for a day of fun and frolic in Acadia.
We offer walks on 16' Flexi leads in our forested setting for an additional charge.
Dog Boarding for the Day

The MDI/Acadia area offers a wide variety of activities such as hiking, beaching, biking, sea kayaking, whale watching, Ranger led programs and cruises. We offer a safe place for your dog to spend the day while you participate in these activities. Day boarding dogs often enjoy being outdoors all day in one of our shaded play yards.

Cat Boarding

The cat room is upstairs away from the noise of the dog area. Each kitty has his own private multi level condo.

The kitties receive special attention and are checked twice daily for health and well being. The litter box is freshened twice a day. Food and deepwell water are available at all times.

Birds, Bunnies, Exotics, and Other Small Pets

We do not have an established area for birds, bunnies, exotics and other small pets, but we try to accommodate them if the owner supplies the enclosure.
