My wife and I like to get away in the seasons. We stumbled upon a not so hidden gem in the heart of down town Ogunquit. Apparently a new owner took over as the place was decorated with more class than the website showed and everything had been freshly painted with much better brighter colors. I got talking to the inn keeper who turns out to be a class act chef. Me being a chef myself I do not give rave reviews on chefs but oh boy can this gentleman put together fresh food. He gives breakfast as part of the cost of the room rental. He does an exotic breakfast with fruit cup but if you are not feeling exotic he does some toned down things like blueberry pancakes with wild Maine maple syrup. I was feeling exotic and he presented my wife and myself with a fabulous fried egg, creamy polenta and roasted asparagus delight. The following day we had a roasted veg frittata. Amazing, fresh and wonderfully delicious. He also has coffee and tea with fresh baked items in the lobby 24 hrs. He provides glasses of wine and a late moon snack. Sometimes he does a drink of the day like frozen mango margaritas. YUM! The prices vary depending on the accommodations but I would venture to say that the cost goes from 80 to 150 per night off season then probably 120 to 220 per night in season. Feel free to chat it up with him as there is nothing about the town or surrounding towns that he can't provide you with info on. I won't stay anywhere else. The inn is a dream and the inn keeper is a class act. Love this place.
