My wife and I with two adult daughters in tow, stayed at this lovely Bed and Breakfast during the Labour Day Weekend. We stayed for two nights to enjoy each other's company before our daughters went out of country for university. We reserved the apartment unit which was more than roomy with two separate sleeping areas and a livingroom with full kitchen. We enjoyed the seclusion of the Beauport Inn's location (which regardless was only a few minutes drive from the beach entrances and Perkins Cove). Their great backyard and pool area backing onto a forest was a nice respite from the very occupied Ogunquit hotel/motels and traffic clogged main street. But by far the nicest part about staying here are the owners Linda and Ellen. They are great hosts but more importantly, they are caring, friendly, good people. Our eldest daughter is lactose intolerant which we failed to mention the first morning at breakfast. I can't tell you how spoiled she was the next day with a wonderful freshly cooked lactose-free meal. The slower, intimate beat of the Beauport Inn allowed us all to reconnect as a family (as I happy understood when my daughters said it was amoung their most memorable moments in travelling together). Thank you again Ellen and Linda for making it magical. (and please give a nice neck-scratch to our feathered friends).
Advice- take advantage of eating-in by ordering delivery of fresh lobster. It is the first time I ever had lobster delivered as easily as pizza. It was a riot to see the motor scooter come up the long gravel driveway with a hot delivery. It was extremely fresh and sooo much cheaper than sitting in a busy restaurant.
