We stayed three nights in the first floor Oceanview room. All the other rooms and cafeteria and pavillion areas have Internet, but the Oceanview rooms don't which was fine with us. Since you can walk to the pool or pavillion and get free Internet there. We used their free kayaks and canoes. You can go a short distance to see... More

I just completed a 4 day stay with my wife and teen age son. We have been coming here for the past 10 years, our last visit 5 years ago. I want to begin by saying the new owners Frank and Bernie go all out to make sure your stay is pleasant as possible. We always stay in the cedar... More

Our stay at Ocean Gate Resort went beyond our expectations! Our room was fabulous - with a terrace overlooking the water. The property is beautiful. It is a great location. They serve complimentary breakfasts that were delicious. Frank, the General Manager/Owner and the rest of the staff made us feel very welcomed and were very helpful and accommodating. We would...

The accommodations were well kept and comfortable; nice breakfast setting. Enjoyed the kayaks available to guests. Quieter than staying in Boothbay Harbor - although that experience is good as well. If you go, try McSeagull's on the harbor. Their clam chowder is the best.

The Ocean Gate is in a sublime location on Southport Island, next to Boothbay Harbor. It sits on a peninsula covering many acres of land and has a variety of room types. We went with a group of 21 people to kayak and bike around the islands and it could not have been better for a large group. All of... More

Just returned from a stay at Ocean Gate and glad to be home. The place is very rustic and needs to be updated. They should invest a little money and buy new towels, the ones on the rooms are like sandpaper, and new bedding (the comforters were all stained with I don't know what). The beds are tiny and very...

OceanGate, Owner at Ocean Gate Resort, responded to this review

I have to say that I am quite surprised and disappointed at this review. While we appreciate constructive criticism and candid comments from our guests, it is disheartening when so much time and effort is put into writing these comments yet not a moment taken to discuss their concerns with management during their visit. We take special pride in our... More

Perfect spot for a Maine Coast vacation. Beautiful grounds and pool; scenic surroundings on the water; comfortable, clean accommodations. Numerous amenities for boating, sports, etc. Terrific breakfast! Friendly, helpful staff. Minutes from Boothbay Harbor, with great area attractions, restaurants, etc. nearby. A perfect, quiet spot to unwind and enjoy. This was our first stay at Ocean Gate and we have... More

We found Ocean Gate three years ago and have been coming back ever since. It is a beautiful resort that is on the waterfront in a very natural setting. It's clean, comfortable, reasonably priced and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Stayed for a two night weekend stay, Friday and Saturday in early June. The amenities are top notch, and rare, I have never seen all that is included in your room package offered anywhere else. Breakfast was very nice, in a pleasant setting with pretty views. Staff is friendly, warm and courteous. The area is exceptional, with Boothbay Harbor at... More
