We were a bit concerned upon our initial arrival when the turnoff to the "resort" had us quickly driving down a single lane dirt/gravel road. Our room however was very nice -- we had an overlook room which is a loft type room with two sleeping areas. The deck from our room afforded a wonderful view of the harbor --...

Just returned from three nights at Ocean Gate. It's a five minute drive from Boothbay Harbor, but worlds away from the busy tourist town. The views are sensational, the spacious rooms are well designed with private terraces overlooking the bay, and the bed was very comfortable. There's a complimentary hot breakfast in the morning. The staff was very helpful, giving...

The scenery is fantastic. We had a 2nd floor room with balcony with a fantastic view of the water, trees, lobster boats and ospreys. The kids loved the kayaking, mini golf and pool. It was like being at camp, just a whole lot better. Breakfast was excellent with sausage, eggs, cereal, yogurt, coffee, juices, teas, milk, ..... The resort is...

The place is at the right spot of BoothBay Harbor, right in the middle of thick wood, right by water and picturesque surroundings. As if we entered the land of hobbits. We enjoyed jogging 6 in the morning together with squirrels, had a swim before breakfast, relaxed at the resort gardens. The staff is extremely polite and helpful. This is...

The resort is quiet, off the beaten path but close enough to town so as not to be a hassle getting around. Resort includes canoes, swimming pool, mini golf, ping pong... It is a beautiful setting in a cove nestled in the woods. It has a rustic flair to it, and it would be great for a multi night stay...

My wife and I spent a week at this resort-Bernie-Frank and the rest of the staff was very accommodating. Free breakfast it would easily cost $30.00 anywhere else. The rooms were clean, the view to the harbor awesome-pools Kayaks canoes, tennis courts, what else could you ask for. We will be back in the fall. Karen & Flip

I was not sure about the place when I booked it. But the reservation staff was more than accommodating with my requests. It was a long drive and the weather was pretty bad in the weekend. We were still able to see the ocean from our balcony despite the heavy fog. It's not a 5-star hotel but it was like...

I went here with a kayaking club. The entrance is a long dirt road, through a small pine forest. The pool, hot tub, rooms, grounds all appear to have been updated and seemed in fresh order. I believe most of the rooms look out over the bay. From the window you can see osprey nests. We launched our boats from...

Thanks for taking the time to provide us feedback on your recent visit with your group. We are celebrating over 7 consecutive years as the host location for your group and we are looking forward to your return in 2014. I apologize for the problem with the hot water as one of our boilers went out (during a full house!)....
