Our Ogunquit Maine Family Resort prides itself with attention to detail, Maine Hospitality and wonderful amenities. In fact these three factors are the main reason why so many of our guests come back to our Ogunquit hotel time and time again. It’s always fun to see generations returning year after year as our Ogunquit hotel becomes part of their family traditions. Here are a few of our favorite upcoming Maine Family Vacation Traditions for you to enjoy when visiting our hotel in Ogunquit.
OgunquitFest kicks off with the Scarecrow Contest beginning
Columbus Day Weekend. Watch as local businesses put up their Fall Decorations! Here at the Meadowmere, Gordy and the Witch have been guest favorites for years.

The Maine Outdoor Film Festival will be coming to Ogunquit on Thursday, October 23, 2014 and the weekend brings Monster Mash, Autumn Bazaar, Wagon Rides, Great Pumpkin Patch, Costume Parade and of course the Bridge to Beach Bed Race. There are so many more great Maine Family Activities.
Fall Foliage & Apple Picking – Throughout September and October experience the famous foliage of New England in our Seaside Village of Ogunquit! The trees are turning all different beautiful colors from green to reds, oranges and purples. The local farms offer a great place to take in the views of the foliage with warm apple cider and of course lots of apples for the kids to pick.
Christmas by the Sea –
December brings two weeks of Holiday Cheer as our neighbors in Kennebunkport host their Christmas Prelude the first weekend with the popular Dock Square Tree Lighting and Hat Parade. Followed by Ogunquit’s Annual Christmas by the Sea the second weekend. In Ogunquit experience the Tree Lighting combined with caroling in the center of town followed by the Bonfire at the Beach just moments from our Ogunquit hotel. Keep warm with the Maine Chowder Tasting Competition and Christmas Crafts. Snap pictures of the kids on Santa’s Lap and finish up some last minute Christmas Shopping as the local shops launch their holiday sales.
School Vacation Escape – February and April bring a well needed break from school for the kids. With daily showings in our TV Room and game room fun it’s no question why so many choose our Maine Family Resort. Jonathan’s restaurant is right next door with a great family menu and just down the street you’ll find sledding, ice skating and cross country skiing.
Maine Maple Sunday –
This Annual Event is like no other and always falls on the 4th Sunday in March as spring arrives on the calendar. Our Maine Family Resort will provide a Maine Sugar Shack & Maple Trail Map to our favorite maple farms where you will find demonstrations, maple candy, maple ice cream and course Maine Maple Syrup.
