We have enjoyed coming to Maine and particularly Ocean Gate and have made our reservation for this summer. We bring our 2 little schnauzers and stay in one of the apartments that overlook a serene waterway. One of the best things is that we can go to Robinson's Wharf in Southport and purchase fresh steamed lobsters and halibut and eat... More

We had a wonderful stay at Oceangate 20 years ago, and recently decided to return. New owners have a real pride in the place and it shows. Our room was very nicely appointed. Small bathroom, but adequate. The views are incredible....you could sit for hours just enjoying the scenery....and we did! Included breakfast is very nice and lots of choices.... More

My wife and I stayed here for a couple of nights a week before the resort was closing for the season. There were not too many other people staying which made it nice and quiet. In addition, the resorts sets back off the main road which also makes for a quiet stay. Our room had a great view of the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ocean Gate last weekend. The view from our balcony and the comfort of the beds were both amazing! The hotel staff were all very accommodating and pleasant. Breakfast had many options. I didn't think it was over the top luxury but it felt nice. The internet didn't really work in our room and the... More

The staff at the ocean gate were outstanding. They responded promptly to all requests and were really friendly. The room was large with a nice water view but very dark. The resort has lots of included amenities. We played mini golf, ping pong, kayaked and enjoyed the hot tub. Breakfast is a standard buffet but food was all very well... More

Visited in mid October, great view of water. Resort was very nice. Had no issues. Best free breakfast I've ever had. Staff was very friendly gave great recommendations on what to do while visiting. Place was clean and comfortable. Very scenic.

We are driving away from our terrific 2 night stay & are already planning a return trip, hopefully in June! We had stumbled upon Ocean Gate while in the area in September and we're delighted they still had an opening for the following month! Our room in the Cedar building was spacious, clean, had an amazing view, and we slept... More

Wow what a beautiful setting! We loved the grounds, but the room…..meh. The musty smell is pretty overpowering, although the room appeared to be very clean. Not sure what it was but it was actually a bit hard to sleep with it. We were sitting out on our deck watching the sunset, and it started to rain and the rain... More

Thanks for your comments. I'm certainly happy to hear that you enjoyed the spectacular views and our full, hot breakfast buffet. I think the especially damp period in which you visited with the rain resulted in the mustiness as it was noted by another guest during that same period. We look forward to having you back to enjoy some sunshine!... More

Our balcony looked out over the little dock where one could go out on a canoe or kayak to explore the surrounding coastline. Very peaceful with a beautiful view of the water. A buffet style breakfast was included in the room rate and there was plenty to choose from. Really lovely landscaping and great service. Much to explore in the... More

The room smelled musty when we arrived despite the fact that the bathroom window and the patio door were open to let the fresh air in. When we turned on the air conditioner the musty smell spewed into the room. It was so awful that we had to sleep with the patio door open on a humid night. The bathroom... More

Thanks for taking the time to comment on your recent visit with us. I remember speaking to you upon your departure. I'm sorry to hear that you found your room to be a bit "musty". The proximity of the room in that building which sits directly on the ocean, may have been the source although it is not a common... More
