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!)....

We just booked a return trip for July 2013 since we had such a wonderful, relaxing vacation last summer, which was our first visit to Ocean Gate Reort. This time, I was sure to include a Wednesday night stay so we can enjoy the Lobster Bake dinner. We stayed in the Waterfront building last year and are staying in the...

There are not enough words to describe how wonderful this place is. The moment you walk into the registration area, you are met by a smiling, friendly face. The entire place is very clean and peaceful. We stayed in the Cedar building, per recommendation of the owner. All I can say is WOW. The room is very large, comfortable, clean...

Ocean Gate Resort had just opened for the season when my husband & I visited in mid-May. We had not been there since 2004, and we were happy to see the renovations & updating by the new owners. The resort is very peaceful, the staff is very friendly & accommodating. You will not experience this type of concern for guests...

I chose this facility after searching the internet to find a mid-coast Maine place that allowed pets. For several years we have visited this general area, and like it very much for a long weekend stay, but we wanted to take our little dog along on this trip. After checking availability, I called the resort to book the unit we...

In August 2012 my family spent the seventeenth year at this peaceful resort. I cannot say enough good things about this place. It is as quiet and relaxing as ever. One reviewer called this ‘an upscale camp for adults’ and it is, a real getaway from the cares of the World. As I have said before we would not continue...

We love Boothbay Harbor, ME and have been going there for over 10 years. We always stay at the Ocean Gate..never anywhere else. We love it, our kids love it and it's very close to Boothbay. They serve a great breakfast every morning. We love to walk down to the dock and take out the kayaks. We have stayed at...

Spent a couple nights here during the Summer. Seemed as though we were the only ones around, despite the place being mostly booked. Not far from any of the attractions in the area, but seems as though you're a million miles away from civilization.
