From the Meadow

Summer 2012


It's what we've been waiting for . . . Summer!

All that is missing is you!

The outdoor pool is open, the sun is shining, the trolley is running; it's summer at the Meadowmere!

Grab your beach chairs, flip flops and sunscreen - and make your way to Ogunquit. Kick off summer by lounging poolside, indulging in that long overdue spa treatment and having that extra lobster roll. Just an hour from Boston and less than 5 hours from New York, you're a tank of gas away from unwinding in the Roman Spa and walking with sand between your toes.

Sun, surf and lasting memories await you this summer at the Meadowmere - We're looking forward to seeing you in Maine.

Happy Travels!
