We love this resort for its natural feel. The view of the ocean is spectacular from multiple points and rooms. The grounds are kept with a natural feel with wooded landscape and well kept paths between amenities. The service is always exceptional and you can tell the owners care greatly for the resort and their customers. Breakfast is served with...

This place is just so sweet. Beautiful setting and the proprietors could not have been nicer. We had a room in the Cedar Building which had a beautiful water view. The room was nicely updated. The breakfast in the morning was excellent. Not one of those typical "chain hotel" breakfasts. Everything was freshly prepared and there was an abundant selection....

Just returned from four nights at Ocean Gate, had a room with the water right below our terrace. Loved the view and the quiet, with wonderful staff, Bernie and Sherrill, made us feel at home. Nearby are good restaurants, a General Store, and kayaks and canoes available for guests on premises.

My wife, I and small dog spent 8 days at Ocean View in early September and we loved it. We had stayed elsewhere several times on SouthPort Island and in BoothBay Harbor, and Ocean Gate has become our favorite. Indeed, we liked it so much we have planned a family reunion for next June. It is a little more rustic...

If you want a well kept resort that is Family owned and operated ocean gate resort is it. Close to town but away from crowds.
