One of the things hotels in Maine look forward to is Memorial Day weekend. From Maine ocean view resorts to lake side cabins, Mainers love Memorial Day weekend. The grilling, the warmer temps, the end of mud season. It's time to get outdoors without layers. So everyone, including our resort in Maine thinks 'Good times ahead'! Hotels in Maine are open and looking forward to welcoming guests from all over. (Did you know our resort in Maine will host weddings from England, Californian and Texas this year? Wow!) Maine is not just a bucket list vacation, it's a romantic destination too. And a romantic escape is effortless in Ogunquit where you can enjoy Maine ocean views steps from our resort along Marginal Way, walk along the beach and enjoy everything from ice cream cones to a real Maine lobster together.
Memorial Day Weekend in Ogunquit Maine signals the start of the summer season – so as you are unwinding, we are just getting started. BBQ's, the outdoor pool officially opens, seasonal breakfast begins, the AIDS quilt makes its only stop in Maine at the Ogunquit town hall, Judy Collins performs at Jonathan's. Long weekends like Memorial Day weekend were made for unwinding, unplugging and recharging but maybe not quite for standing still. After all, there are great Maine vacation memories to be made!
And even if you cannot plan a Maine vacation to enjoy the ocean view steps from our Maine resort on the holiday weekend, there are midweek May packages: Golf, Spa, Dining, Make Me A Chef. Take that quick Spring trip and let us help you unwind.
- The Meadowmere Resort has long been a family vacation favorite. Named Best Southern Maine Family Resort by Family Fun magazine, our Ogunquit hotel features oodles of amenities for the little ones. Of course Mom and Dad are traveling too and sometimes all those toys from home that helped make the car ride so good, end up scattered all over the hotel room. Janet was cleaning a family's room and the stuffed animals were everywhere. She carefully searched under beds and arranged the toys on the bed to welcome everyone back after a day of fun. Giving Mom and Dad one less thing to worry about or step on! (And here's a tip – if you forget a cherished toy at home, check out Animal Instinct in Ogunquit for a new addition to the toy family. It's a wonderful local shop – you'll feel like a kid)
- Our team at our Ogunquit resort realize that one of the many reasons to travel is to recharged. In fact, it seems some of our guests are so in need of rest, coffee is the only way to get started. Rowan noticed that one of her guests had gone thru extra coffee and she made sure to give them plenty for the next morning's tank. The guest was so happy that she sought Rowan out to say thank you for such a wonderful personal touch. And if you need a pick me when in Ogunquit and our handy in room coffee makers or wonderful Maine made coffee is not nearby, try Bread & Roses or Village Food Market – Ogunquit features local shops, no Starbucks here.)
- At the Meadowmere Resort in Ogunquit, one of our many hotel amenities is a library area filled with puzzles, old fashioned board games and real books. We know that sometimes a trip back in time and away from anything iphone, ipad or internet makes the best memories and gives true relaxation. Janet was helping a guest who mentioned she just was not finding a book to her liking in our library. Janet told her about Annie's Book Stop on Route 1 in Wells and then retreived the phone number with directions so that the guest could find that perfect book. The guest was impressed with the thoughtful suggestion and extra step!
