So Nice! Crisp Fall Air and Fantastic Festivals Abound!
The days are getting shorter - so enjoy every minute in Ogunquit.
At the Meadowmere, we are ready for a fantastic fall season - the perfect time of year to snuggle in a fireplace suite.
October brings us Harvestfest and Ogunquitfest, month long celebrations of crafts, ghostly tours, shopping deals and spooky rides.
Best of all - Fall brings us the return of Gordy, our 1200 pound scarecrow who towers 15 feet at our entrance to welcome you!
