“loved this find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Last year my husband and I drove to Maine for a couple of days away from the stress of kids and work. We stopped at a nearby hotel it was awful we drove a little further and came across The Seahorse and stayed 2 days. They were in the middle of renovating but they were very respectful not to start to early. The room was very clean and comfortable. Iam very picky where I stay I have walked out of a lot of hotels but this one was wonderful they met all our needs and accomadated all our needs. We definitely will be back. I'm actually trying to plan a trip this July.

We can all forget at times what vacation means, if you have come to think of vacation as time to be with people you love, in a place that reflects and enhances the joy of sitting around being happy, Seahorse may be your place. I have stayed alone and felt comfortable and at ease, I have MS and have found the cottages and beautiful grounds easy to get around. Being able to have a morning and evening walk among the trees and walkways kept so clean and obstacle free makes this a true find.

My husband and I made a nice one day trip to Maine and stayed at the Seahorse Resort. We stayed in the motel section which the room was very nice, clean and well decorated. The grounds are very nice and inviting for a family. The new owners are wonderful people and are planning on continuing with the renovations. We plan on staying again next season!

Seahorse's new owners did a great job improving the place. The rooms and cottages are clean ans spacious. Kitchen well equipped with pots, pans, dishes and coffee maker (filters included). Grounds with amazing mature weeping willows. We stayed in cottage 71, 2 adults and 2 childrens, just in front of the very safe kids playground. We had a great week end.

Room Tip: Charcoal barbecue on site, no problems sharing with other parties.

It appears the new owners who have taken over are trying to make improvements and update the rooms. The room was clean and and well kept. I would stay here again and I am considering renting a cabin for next summer.

We spent a few days at the Seahorse, and it was wonderfully comfortable and relaxing. The new owners are turning this quiet little place into one of the best values in the area. The rooms and grounds have been dramatically improved. Forget about what you've heard about the old Sleepytown, this is an entirely new experience with new people in charge who actually care about making your stay a pleasant one. We've found our new summer spot. See you next year, Seahorse!

Girls weekend in a cozy cottage was so wonderful because of new owners! Cottages have been updated ,super comfy new beds. Grounds and pool in great condition. Really a great ,reasonably priced cottage. Best location for visiting near by Attractions without parking issue. All the comforts of home and if you need anything for your kitchen just ask! Very relaxing and a great value. We will be back.

Room Tip: Cottages with small kitchens allow flexibility with families to avoid eating out every meal.
