Never closed the curtains for the balcony doors, so we could enjoy the view upon waking up in the mornings. We were probably in one of the oldest buildings on the property; but it was clean, comfortable and included a nice buffet breakfast. Nice pool, free use of kayaks and canoes, and easy access to Boothbay Harbor, but in a... More

We stayed at the Ocean Gate for 3 nights in August 2016 with our 2 daughters aged 12 and 10. We took 2 rooms both of a good size (although to share one would have been crowded) with beautiful views over the water. We loved the complimentary kayaking from the private dock, the pool, the quiet walks and the mini... More

It doesn't deserve 5 stars as we traditionally understand them, but the overall experience was 5 star. Facilities are a little older/tired but clean and functional. Management was helpful. No nickel and diming going on here, everything is included. The view from our room was great.

Exceeded expectations from the grounds, swimming pool and hot tub to our gorgeous room right on the waters edge to the staff and delicious breakfast. They know how to treat guests right. It didn't hurt that we had 3 glorious days of sunny hot summer weather too. 😎

A little disappointed. Second floor with a two year old and the deck was so rickety and it felt so unsafe! The room was clean but had an oder. The staff was very friendly though. Would I ever go back there? Hell no!

We really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Gate. The views are tremendous. It was wonderful to wake up each morning and look at the water. This was our first trip to the area, we hope to come back next year! Great secluded location, beautiful scenery and a very short drive into Boothbay Harbor.

Wow, where to begin??? When we checked in, a young man named Isaac at the front desk was exceptional. Every time I ever went to the office for anything, either he or a young lady from Macedonia were working and both were helpful and friendly as can be. Truly, from the moment we got there until the moment we left,... More

You're AWESOME for writing such a nice review! Maybe you picked up the phrase from Isaac at the Front Desk who uses it incessantly! :) Both he and Tamara are great additions to our team. I'm glad that you took the time to notice and comment. I'm sure they both will be delighted! Frank More
