Laudholm Farm was first settled in 1643. For more than three centuries, the land held an agricultural farm supporting the town of Wells, Maine with milk, cream, butter, eggs and roasting hens – just a few of the local goodies produced back in the day. Way back then, Laudholm Farm was the largest and most progressive saltwater farm in all of York County and even shipped goods weekly to Boston. Now the headquarters for the Wells Reserve, the historic farm is part of over 2,200 acres of protected land with a mission to preserve and protect the natural beauty of Maine.
Each September Laudholm Farm holds two favorite festivals which have become traditions for many guests visiting our Ogunquit hotel. It starts with their Nature Craft Festival featuring over 100 artisans exhibiting their products, music, food and a whole lot of fun held in September on the weekend after Labor Day. Later in the month, the Punkinfiddle Family Festival is held with traditional crafts, hands on learning, lively music, old-fashioned games, farm animals and fun for the whole family!
At our Ogunquit hotel we don’t miss a beat our dedicated staff is out exploring all the fun things for your family to enjoy in the area to ensure you get the most out of your Maine Vacation. We’re here year round to share it all and here are a few stories from our staff working hard to make sure you have a great stay:
Liz at the front desk was assisting a guest with planning some fun activities around our hotel in Ogunquit. Once they had decided upon the best option for their family the mother inquired where she could get some Happy Birthday Balloons for her daughter’s upcoming birthday. Liz assured her not to worry and stated she would take care of it all from picking them up to setting them up in the room on her special day!
Hannah was assisting a guest at the front desk when he inquired where he could print a document. She explained the location of the guest computer and asked what he was looking to print. As he was looking for directions to New York she offered to take care of that for him and had the directions ready in seconds.
