My girlfriend booked us a night at the Rockmere Lodge on Marginal Way at Agunquit, Maine as my surprise 50th birthday gift and after arriving and seeing the place I couldn't have been more pleased. Marginal Way and Perkins Cove has always been one of my favorite places to visit at any time of the year, but I've never had the chance to stay and relax and really enjoy the area so the lodge was truly the "icing on the cake". The lodge is very clean and "homey", wonderfully painted and wallpapered so each room has it's own story and "charm", and our room had a wondeful view of the ocean as well. If that wasn't enough, we also had access to a "Lookout" area on the top floor where we could look 180 degrees and see nothing but the beach and the waves crashing in. The two innkeepers that we met(Andy and Doug) were very friendly and accomodating and had no problem talking about the history of the lodge and how they came about owning it and renovating it. The dining room and place settings also had its own charm and we had to take a picture before eating our wonderful breakfast because it looked like something you'd see in a magazine. The lodge is already booked for this summer so it's reputation is already well known and most likely has many repeat customers that come year after year and I certainly understand why they would. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves for the night we stayed(an off-season Thursday night) so we got to look in at all of the rooms and see the work that's been done and different colors, configurations and "charm" that they all possess. It was truly a wonderful experience and we recommend the Rockmere Lodge and its friendly innkeepers to anyone. Personally, I couldn't have had a better birthday and this lodge was the main reason for it. We plan on returning in December to witness the lodge after it has been decorated for the Christmas season. It must truly be a wonderful sight to see and we're really looking forward to it.
