...or at least that's how we felt when we stayed at the Beachmere!
This was our first visit to Maine and it was a wonderful experience. The Beachmere provided everything we could have asked for. The property is amazingly beautiful and well-maintained (kudos to your gardener!) -- the rooms are very well appointed, clean and very comfortable. We stayed in 217 in the West building -- this room has a gas fireplace and came in handy on a cool, rainy Monday night during our stay (check the Beachmere website - you can see exactly what's in each room). We had planned for this (checked the weather before arriving of course!) and popped a DVD movie into the DVD player provided in the room.
Both the King bed in the bedroom, and the sofa bed in the living room, were comfortable with nice, clean sheets, pillows and blankets. The bathroom is immaculate - double sink, plenty of new, clean towels.
Beautiful views from the private deck. Ours overlooked Ogunquit beach. The Marginal Way is accessible from several locations directly on the property. Short walk into town and to Perkins Cove -- so it's a perfect location all around. A convenient trolley stop is located at the end of the street.
Housekeeping was excellent. Our rooms were serviced in a timely fashion each day, and requests we made were handled immediately. A very nice breakfast is provided daily from 8 to 10am - you may eat in the indoor breakfast room, or outside on the patio, or take it back to your room. At night, the breakfast room turns into "Bawdy Sally's Pub" -- which we did try one evening -- and was excellent as well (thanks Mike!). The kitchenette contained everything we needed for a quick snack or a hot drink during our stay.
The only thing bad about our stay was that it had to end : ). We can't wait to return!
