Fantastic views. and the room was so quiet. The breakfast is delicious and has an assortment of anything you could want. The grounds are beautiful, very quiet and peaceful. This is definitely a place you do not want to miss.

My wife and I were traveling down Maine's coast and decided to stop at Boothbay. We had no reservations and we discovered Oceangate. We got a room with a beautiful view of the bay. The grounds were nice and well kept. The staff very friendly. They suggested places to visit and places to eat. All their suggestions were wonderful! The... More

We stayed in the newer renovated rooms with a balcony looking over the water. Very clean and spacious rooms. Bunch of amenities on the premise including a basic mini golf course, free kayak/canoe usage, etc. Breakfast was individually prepared for us (probably because it was the first weekend) and enough options. It's only a couple miles from Boothbay Harbor so... More

I most highly recommend this wonderful, serene resort, especially to families. Our family enjoyed our twentieth year here last August. Ocean Gate is extremely reasonably priced for all the amenities and activities available. It is family-friendly, child-friendly and ‘rustic’ in the best meaning of the word. If you want a place to go every summer to relax, unwind and stop... More

I transported my parents who are in their 70's and 80's to Maine to visit family. Both parents ambulate well but my dad is a little unsteady. We were able to secure a really nice ocean view room that had a few steps up and he was able to get in and out of the room comfortably. The room was... More

I am so glad we chose Ocean Gate and the Boothbay Harbor region to visit on our trip to Maine! This was such a nice place to stay. While obviously an older complex, it was clean and very well maintained. The view from our room was wonderful. The staff was so friendly and the free breakfast was good. There is... More

Our stay was wonderful, from the staff to our room, to all the activites such as paddleboats, kayaks, row boats, mini golf, pool and hottub. The place is set into the woods so you get away from the crowds, but so far away that the town is a long ride away. The breakfast was great, and the staff was always... More

This is an old-fashioned resort in a location that is exquisitely beautiful. We stayed in the building right on the water which I would recommend highly. Breakfast is included. There is a dock with kayaks, a heated pool, tennis court, horse shoes, etc. This would be great for a family or even a reunion. It's very near Boothbay Harbor but... More

Our room was clean and comfortable with a great deck. We were in the Cedars building, close to the pool and breakfast room. We only stayed one night but felt it was a good value and would stay again if we are in the area. It is obvious that the managers of this family-owned resort take great pride in their... More

Our experience at ocean gate was wonderful. The staff were helpful and courteous. The food was great and the amenities for guests were great from ping pong, tennis, mini golf, hiking and boats- all with free equipment to use. Our 9 yo twins had a great time and so did we!!!
