It was our first trip to Ogunquit and we knew we should be near the town (shops and restaurants), the Marginal Way and Perkins Cove. Parsons Post House Inn is just right. You walk out the door and the street of shopping and dining starts. Or you walk out the door and hop, skip and jump right onto Marginal Way. Its just right to get on the Marginal Way at this end, so you can build up an appetite by walking the path to Perkins Cove, and then either 'walk off' your dinner by returning by way of the path...or you can also take the street for a shorter route back.
My first indication that we had lucked into something good was that a young many showed us to our room at check-in, and his bedside manners were top notch. Those great manners and cheerfulness usually come from the top, and that proved to be the case here. The owners were always cheery and helpful, seemingly at all hours of the day. I almost tested them to see if I could find them at one point in a not great mood... Impossible!
OK, really nice folks....but what's the place like? Well, I'm really picky about all the details and this place is just right. It's not the Four Seasons, but they have done very well with this in-town building. The bathrooms, the bedrooms, all the details were very very good.
In our case, we also had two teenage children. It's an easy walk to the beach.
I guess you can tell, I strongly recommend!
