I have gone to the Oakland House Seaside Resort for 7 years now. Hard to believe it's that many years. I have gone by myself, with my husband, with friends and also with family members. I have stayed in 8 of the cabins and 4 of the rooms. All are well maintained. I have gone for 2 nights up to 10 nights. I do enjoy the fire places in the cabins and in the Inn. Each and every time I have been there has been a very pleasurable and wonderful experience for me and whomever is with me. The setting is beautiful and peaceful. The cabins and rooms are comfortable and clean; I sleep so well there! I love to hear the loons, look for seals and watch the water. I have experienced only excellent service at the Oakland House Seaside Resort from the office, house keeping, maintenance, and food staff. I feel they are there to make my stay as wonderful as it can be. My trips can be full of activities or just total relaxing-reading. I usually take my kayak and/or road bike. Acadia is only an hour or so away and I always take a day to spend there. Near by Walker Pond has a beach that is open to guests from the resort and I usually swim there instead of the ocean-it's a little warmer...but I do make quick dips in the ocean. I was there during the Fairy Festival this past July and enjoyed watching many children and even adults engaged in the event. It is a wonderful place to experience.
