Pets ~ Sea Chambers is not a pet friendly property.* Service dogs trained to assist a person with a disability are welcome, and must be registered with our Front Desk staff upon check-in. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort, emotional support or companionship do not qualify as service dogs with public accommodation under federal or Maine state law, and are not allowed at Sea Chambers. Service dogs must be under handler’s control at all times and may not be left in the rooms alone. Guests who disregard our policy will be required to leave immediately without refund, and will be charged an additional $250 cleaning fee plus the cost of one night’s rental.
