“Great family spot, close to ocean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2008

This resort has been transformed from a nice hotel to a great family retreat. Kathleen and Peter have put their heart and sole into bringing this property from a reasonable hotel to a family friendly spot with on site pub, play area and great rooms. The location is walkable to Goose Rocks Beach, one of our favorite beach spots in New England. The kids were free to roam around and investigate the game area and of course, found the computer with internet access. Kathleen has a long history of hospitality in the region and her special touch at Ocean Woods Resort makes this a great spot for families.

My husband and I made a long weekend out of a business trip to Kennebunkport ME. We were very pleased with our large comfortable room, and the cleanliness of the Ocean Woods. The staff and owners are very friendly and accomodating and really made us feel welcome. The location is excellent, just a few minutes from downtown Kennebunkport, within walking distance of beautiful Goose Rocks Beach and a short drive to the outlets at Kittery and Freeport.

We have visited the Ocean Woods Resort three times this past year and enjoyed every visit immensely, and would like to recommend the resort to anyone planning a family vacation, wedding, business event, or just a quiet get away weekend. The Inn is now owned and operated by the hard working, gracious innkeeper, Kathleen Spang and her family, and Peter Morton. They all have created a warm, inviting place in which to spend time while visiting one of the prettiest areas of southern Maine, which includes Goose Rocks Beach just a half mile down the road from Ocean Woods. Goose Rocks Beach is THE place for guaranteed happy and safe children, and is the beach adults need to "re-charge their batteries"!

The guest rooms are large, comfortable and tastefully decorated, and the Continental breakfast is most generous. PJ's Grill is an on site bar and a great spot to enjoy a delicious bite while enjoying conversation with staff and other guests, or watching a sports event on multiple televisions. Also, there are several cozy areas both inside and outside for reading, playing games, napping, or just spending time enjoying the lovely grounds, pool and hot tub. As an added bonus, if you are visiting in the spring, you may be treated to a beautiful nightly serenade by nature - no charge!

We have been fortunate to have visited Canada, the western USA, and points south and east, but have never found more beauty and restfullness of spirit, than at Ocean Woods Resort, and Goose Rocks Beach. It simply does not get any better!

We always look forward to our next trip to Maine, and hope any future guests at Ocean Woods will become acquainted with Kathleen, Peter and the family . They are wonderful people who strive to make their guests feel comfortable and very welcome at their inn.

We spent a long weekend here just before the summer rush and really enjoyed our stay.

It's located outside of town just a 10 minute walk from what must be one of the nicest beaches in Maine. The beach slopes very gradually to the water and is well protected from the surf ... just perfect for kids!

The inn has only 32 rooms and the service is very attentive. The new owners started with the rooms and the new linens and fresh paint add to the comfort. I had the impression that the rooms are larger than normal, too.

The bar/restaurant was still fairly new and there are some kinks. Still, it's a good place for a bar-style meal and we found locals there every night. You could find it's a place to get away from the tourist crowd and meet some locals.

All-in-all a pleasant stay ... I'm sure we'll return.
