April Showers bring the 2014 Season to Ogunquit

FamvacaMany take a Maine family vacation this April especially with the school Spring break. Tis the Season to enjoy budding flowers, Marginal Way and family fun. Of course, many ask what it there to do on a familiy vacation to Maine now? At our Ogunquit Maine family resort we are happy to help. Planning a family vacation to Ogunquit beach is really wonderful anytime of year - but April/May is a great pick for many reasons: less crowds, great value and good memories.

Planning a family vacation for April break in Maine can be filled with ol'fashion fun. From our family resort in Maine you can enjoy these Maine family vacation picks for Spring:

  • Barnacle Billy's  - Even if the whole family does not eat our state critter, Lobsters are still a kick to look at and Perkins Cove is full of real lobster boats. So crack open the steamers and don that bib - it's time for some butter dipping in Ogunquit!
  • Marginal Way - Sure kids today are attached to an i-something. But the beauty of Marginal Way and the lure of just what might be in that tidepool or just how those rocks are balanced will break that spell. Or at least give them something natural to twit pic. Wholesome family fun with perhaps with a seal sighting.
  • Mt. Agamenticus - Go play in our backyard. Mt. A is a hiking blast and the tallest point in Southern Maine. Meaning even this far inland, you will have a family sighting of the ocean. You might even sneak a little education in with the cool trails signs explaining local critters and trees. Your Maine family vacation can stay on tracks with well groomed hiking trails and easy parking.
  • Harbor Candy Shop - Okay, so this one is not on the healthy list. But if your family vacation to Maine is walking and hiking, this gets a pass. Plus, this shop is a locally owned Maine made Willy Wonka kind of candy shop. Stop in for the smell of fresh chocolate and indulge a little on your Maine family vacation - it is a chance for everyone to be a kid.
  • Liquid Dreams Paddle Boarding - What you say?!? It's freezeing in that Maine water. Wetsuit technology is amazing, the whole family will be warm and toasty. Paddle boarding is fun and great for almost all ages - 5 and up can get in on the fun. Your family can take a 2 hour trip up Ogunquit River, view the estauraries just coming to life for the season and once again, i-phone,pads and gadets get left ashore. It's a chance to make memories and grab that elusive feeling of peace. For 2 hours.

And it's not just planning an April Family vacation that has our Maine Resort looking forward to the Spring season. Even the occasional April shower can by overcome - Our family resort in Ogunquit has indoor pool, hot tub, TV room, Roman Spa, game room and plenty of amenities to wait out the rain drops til it's time to take your family adventure out for pizza. Or have it delivered - it's your Spring family vacation to Ogunquit after all! Put your feet up and now read how a little thing makes a big difference at our Maine family resort: Shower

  • One of the beautiful things about a family vacation to Maine, is that the beauty of Maine makes one disconnect from technology. Skip those emails, miss text and socialize within arms reach not Facebook webs. But for one guest the real world could not be ignored and he had to check his email - it was so important, he was up in the middle of the night. Using our guest computer center, this guest was struggling with an AOL sign in. Jack came to the rescue as it was late and quickly the guest was able to access his account and catch up. The guest was thrilled.
  • One of the best things about our family resort in Ogunquit is the chance to add a few hours more to a vacation with a complimentary guest pass to freshen up before heading home. Two ladies had decided to enjoy the afternoon with the pools and hot tubs and then headed to the Ladies locker room - only to discover that they had packed their shampoo and soap. Though the locker room has a shampoo/soap combination, it was not the same - especially when you had hopes for your own products from home. Janet happened to be walking through checking for cleanliness and said hello, noticing that the ladies seemed to need some help. Once she learned of the concern, Janet headed up to housekeeping cart for our amenity shampoo and soap and returned to save the day. Or at least the hair day!

Easter Preparation in Ogunquit Maine

EasterEggHuntSpring has so many wonderful signs - flowers, sunshine, longer days, warmer afternoons, buds on trees. And it is all happening as Spring arrives in Ogunquit Maine. Of course, Easter is another Spring tradition at the Meadowmere Resort. With kid's easter crafts, egg hunts and Jonathan's famous Easter Day brunch, planning an Easter weekend in Maine is a fun and relaxed way to celebrate.

And if traveling for the holiday is not a fit, April school vacation is just around the corner. With Ogunquit favorites like Ogunquit Lobster Pound, Barnacle Billy's and more open to enjoy, planning a family vacation for April break in Maine can be filled with ol'fashion outdoor fun. No iphones or epads required. Hike Mt. Agamenticus, stroll Marginal Way, grab an early season ice cream and perhaps cast a line for dop fishing on Ogunquit's bridge. Yes, April Showers (which bring May Flowers! No complaining!) may happen but with indoor pool, TV room, Roman Spa and plenty of games, puzzles and room service, there is a always a way to unwind rain or shine at our Ogunquit hotel. 

And it's not just planning an April Family vacation that has our Maine Resort looking forward to the sunshine. Our are celebrating and revving up at the thought of warmer temps too -  Check out a few of this past week's service stories:

  • Even after a great night's sleep in a suite at the Meadowmere, morning coffee is a must - after all, it's Maine made! Jodi was tidying up a guest room when she noticed that both of the regular coffees were used and non of the decaf. Rather than just replace the two regulars, Jodi set up the guests with four coffees to start of the next morning with a full tank. The guests were so surprised that she had noticed such a small detail that they left a personal hand written note telling Jodi how much they appreciated it!
  • MarrymeRecently the Meadowmere Resort was named the best Honeymoon spot in New England. So we aren't surprised when some of our guests get swept up in the romance of Ogunquit Maine. When Janet discovered that guests had just decided to become engaged during their stay, she placed a complimentary box of chocolates in room, made some of our famous kissing swans and put a complimentary copy of Real Maine Weddings to help the wedding planning begin.
  • Staying at a hotel for the first time can be unnerving - is it clean? are they friendly? will I sleep well? We understand. When guests walked into the hotel after a long drive and in need of accommodations, they had many questions. Matt offered to take the guests on a short tour and show the room and all the amenities at our Ogunquit Maine hotel. The guests were so pleased with the personal touch and the Meadowmere Resort, that they checked in immediately and relaxed after a long day's trip.

Ogunquit Patriots Day Festival 2014

Pats

Ogunquit's Patriot's Day Festival is all about hanging with history.  Paul Revere, Ben Franklin - some pretty impressive charcters. This annual Maine festival signals that Ogunquit is open for the season. Which of course means our Southern Maine village likes to share just how amazing the food is by the beach. The annual Ogunquit Patriot's Day Festival means the Taste of the Town. Local restaurants and chefs showcase delicious treats from desserts to chowders to artisan pizza, complete with beer sample naturally. It's reason alone to visit our Ogunquit Resort but here are a few more highlights of the 2014 Ogunquit Maine Patriot's Day Festival and you can find a compete list of Patriot's Day Festival activities here:

  • Historical Reenactment - Party at Dolley Madison's House, Friday evening
  • Fife & Drum Concert - Friday evening
  • Beach Bazaar - Saturday all day over 50 vendors of crafts and goodies
  • Historical Figure Treasurement - Find them if you can! Saturday day
  • Taste of the Town - Saturday day. Delicious - Need we say more?
  • Irish Folk Music - Saturday night
  • Pooch Pageant & Dog Show - Sunday morning. Even Fido approves!
  • Duck Race  - an Ogunquit classic , Sunday morning with the tide.

And it's not just Ogunquit's Patriot's Day celebration that has our Maine Resort looking forward to the 2014. Our team is sharing restaurants tips and more -  Check out a few of this past week's service stories: Mead_Jacuzzi

  • One of the long time favorites at the Meadowmere Resort is our Outdoor Jacuzzi. This past week one couple was so excited to enjoy the 103 degree water and bubbles that they completely forgot towels. Now early April in Maine can be a bit chilly when making the dash from Outdoot Hot Tub back inside. Andy noticed that they had no towels and made a quick trip to the hotel lobby to pick up a few for them. The couple was so grateful - it had only just occured to them that they could really use those towels! 
  • Eating in Maine is a joy. And not just for Lobster - there's a great food movement and cuisine scene in Ogunquit and beyond. Stuart was chatting with a long time guest who mentioned that they were celebrating their 45th anniversary. They hadn't thought about it much but now they really wanted a special dinner place. Stuart put on his thinking cap and realized that midweek, several of the nicer restaurants in Southern Maine were closed that evening. He could think of one special place - Joshua's - but knew that a same night reservation was unheard of - the Wells restaurant is that popular. But he worked his magic and presented the guest with a note for an 8 o'clock reservation that night. The guests were thrilled and had a wonderful time at this slow food gem just north of our Ogunquit Maine Resort.
  • These days there are all sorts of ways to open wine - screw caps, fancy boxes. But one guest this week had a good ol'fashioned corkskew bottle. Our team at the Meadowmere Resort were happy to provide a complimentary bottle opener but it just wasn't doing the trick. Jeremy was walking by just as the guest was going for help. Jeremy gave it a good try but couldn't open the bottle. He then remembered that he kept his waiter's bottle opener in his car and quickly went to retreived it. Worked like a charm and the guest was thrilled that Jeremy was so resourceful and helpful.

April Showers - Ogunquit Springs into 2014 Season

Lobsterman

Okay - so at the Meadowmere Resort, we know Maine is known for Lobster. Lots of Lobster. Our state critter is everyone where - from lobster candy to lobster traps to lobster hats to lobster pots - you get the idea. But one place where we all seem to agree that lobsters should be: in our Maine restaurants. On the plate, in the roll, lazy man or whole.

Why does the Meadowmere Resort family have lobster on the brain this week? It's because Ogunquit is gearing up for the season! Which means some of our favorite and best Maine lobster restaurants are opening for the season. Here are a few Ogunquit Maine lobster restaurants coming to the 2014 season for you!

  • LobshackLobster Shack, Perkins Cove - Nothing like their classic lobster roll eaten on the side of the pier as lobstermen go in and out for their catch. Ayuh - that's some fresh Maine air on the side!
  • Ogunquit Lobster Pound - This spot is just too much fun. With live lobster tanks to watch for hours, picnic style seating and ample parking. Perfect family pick.
  • Barnacle Billy's - The grand-daddy of the Ogunquit Lobster Experience. Bibs, crackers, steamers on the side, indoor or outdoor seating, Mainers calling your order number. And a rum punch to wash down all that buttery goodness.

And it's not just Ogunquit's lobster restaurants that has us looking forward to the 2014. Our team is gearing up too. Check out a few of this past week's service stories:

  • Making coffee in our West Meadow Pub is an important task. We all know how a little gas in the tank helps start the day. But for one guest, herbal tea was the request. Janet searched the pub and could not find an herbal tea that worked. She then remembered that she had some herbal tea in her housekeeping cart just for special requests. Janet made a personal trip to the guest's room to deliver the tea. Making a great start to this guest's day!
  • Occasionally Meadowmere guests travel to Ogunquit Maine with quite a lot. Even having to ship boxes ahead of time. When not alerted of the shipment in advance or labeled to the guest name, boxes often go to the hotel delivery drop. When Matt discovered a group of boxes there, he quickly realized that they belonged to a group of guests joining us for a Jonathan's concert. Matt gathered up the boxes and personally delivered them to Jonathan's - Ready for show time!

Planning a Winter Holiday Party in Southern Maine

Entrance WinterHow to Plan a Great Company Holiday Party in Southern Maine

Winter is Maine is breathtaking – and not just because it’s cold. But that doesn’t mean your company’s holiday party can’t warm things up! Planning a holiday party in Southern Maine is a great idea – the crowds are gone, the food is delicious and Jonathan’s venue has one amazing sound system.

Meadowmere Holiday Parties in Ogunquit Maine

Cold. Snow. Sometimes that makes it a tough sell to head to the Maine Beaches.  But hey, it is the company holiday party and once everyone gets over the bridge, even spreadsheet lovers let lose.  Just tell coworkers that there’s a hot tub outside and an amazing indoor Roman Spa to enjoy – and a fitness facility that is state of art if HR wants to be sure there are healthy activities to promote. Our Ogunquit hotel is open year round and eating a Maine lobster happens every day. Plan a team building snowshoe along the rocky Maine coast of Marginal Way with a mile of soothing ocean sounds. Design a craft beer pairing menu with real Maine Made Beer. You can even arrange for a horse drawn sleigh ride. All wonderful winter things to do in Maine that make you look like the holiday party hero.

These are some tips on how to plan your company holiday party in Maine.

Tip 1: Maine It Up!

Not just a little, but bring a lot of Maine to your event. From lobster to potatoes, beer to wine, Maine has delicious food produced right here in state. It’s sustainable, local and yummy. Green points to you holiday planner.

If the boss is calling for you to Santa at your holiday party, consider such options as Stonewall Kitchen corporate gifts or Maine Moose Poop. Both have the ability to laugh, delight and provide a snack for the ride home. Just remember the Meadowmere team will take those gifts and place them in room to lighten your sleigh.

If the that coworker who just has to have dancing is dropping off mix tapes and emailing pics of her cousin's band, consider such options as Wavelength or  All Together Now or  Straight Lace. All are local Maine bands. The difference is classy, Beatles or rockin’. And with music this good, that coworker will dub you one hip party planner.

Tip 2: Book a hotel room block steps from the party.

Exterior WinterXmasYou need a hotel that is open and steps from your venue with easy access. It is winter in Maine. That means snow.*

And you want to give your coworkers a place to be cozy and comfortable so you can convince them - whoever you have in mind for this Maine celebration – to travel to Maine in winter. Enter the Roman Spa and Outdoor Hot Tub. There is even a chance to impress the boss with upgrades to a Jacuzzi Suite. Then the head honcho has a luxury experience after fearlessly leading everyone thru another year.

If a brisk walk is the chosen adventure, guests of your corporate holiday party can stroll to Marginal Way for ocean view and village shops for gourmet chocolates and coffee.

If a quick drive is on tap, just hop on Route 1 to explore Kennebunkport to our north or York to our south. Both are within a 20 minute drive. You can arrange for early arrivals to jam it up – Stonewall Kitchen Flagship York Store is just minutes away and free samples abound.

Tully’s in Wells is like a magic carpet ride for beer lovers and Federal Jack’s is just up Rt 1 in Kennebunkport. In pinch, Cornerstone in Ogunquit brings all that closer – artisan beer and gourmet pizzas.

*This comes with a caveat question ‘What if it snows on our holiday party date’? All the venues mentioned and the Meadowmere have snow removal down – your holiday party will still be a success. Even during the blizzard of February 2013, with over 30 inches of snowfall, the outdoor hot tub opened on time. And every car was cleared.

Meadowmere Resort A Maine Family Business Award Finalist

Hcsampler

Finding an independent family run business these days can be daunting. Bit like a needles in a haystack. But not in Maine. Maine is full of locally owned and operated inns, B&B's  and hotels just like the Meadowmere Resort. In fact, Maine is home to family run businesses across many industries. And our family owned independent Ogunquit hotel is happy to be a part of good ol' Mainers in business. The Meadowmere Resort was just announced to be a 2014 Maine Family Business Award Finalist. Our Ogunquit hotel's journey to this point began with a nomination by our friends at IRC Solar, who have watched us work hard at our green hotel programs for many years. Keep your fingers crossed - Awards at announced in May.

One of the reasons for our nomination was our Family Serving Family motto. Every day and every stay we are looking for how to make a trip to see us special. Here are some examples from this past week of how our team is going that little extra:

  • Hannah was thrilled to take a reservation for a guest who was coming to celebrate a birthday in Ogunquit. She set up a reminder for herself for when the guest would check in and placed a small box of Harbor Candy chocolates  - locally made in Ogunquit Maine - in the guest's room as sweet surprise.
  • Janet was checking on the pub area one morning when a guest asked about this Ogunquit raffle he was hearing about. Janet told him about the amazing chance to win a three night stay at the Meadowmere with massage, dinner, lunch and playhouse tickets. All for a $25 ticket. The guest was excited - so Janet went to the front desk to get more information on how to win and wished him good luck!
  • While attending to a guest room, Whitney received a note from the guest saying how happy they were with the service and thanking her for doing such a great job. Whitney returned the favor, taking the time to say thank you and wishing them a wonderful stay - it was her pleasure to welcome them!

March Sweet Taste of Spring in Ogunquit Maine

HopesrpigsLots of things Spring eternal - hope, tigger, daylight savings. And with Spring officially just around the corner, Spring in Ogunquit is upon us. Yes the flowers have a long and muddy way to go and you are not quite ready to break out the flip flops - but Spring in Ogunquit is still the time to shake those winter blues. An Ogunquit vacation to our Maine resort can celebrate just surviving this winter and taking a good thaw in the hot tub.

In fact, your room can even come with a hot tub - with Spring deals the value of our Ogunquit hotel's Luxury Suites is amazing. Our Maine resort's Honeymoon Suites received a wonderful recognition as the Best Place to Honeymoon in New England.

Another sweet reason to join us - Maine Maple Sunday, which is really a whole weekend of fun. From alpacas to syrup on ice cream to pottery to syrup on pancakes to, well, more syrup, Maine Maple Weekend is a celebration of artisan crafts and delicious yummy syrup. Syrup so good, it's a good thing this travel mug was found!

  • Janet was checking the Fitness Center at the Meadowmere Resort and inspecting the ladies locker room area. She found a travel mug left behind and decide to check the health club area for any ladies that may be using the hotel gym. After taking the time to check with several women, Janet found the owner of the travel mug who was surprised and delighted - she had completely forgotten about it! Janet taking a few minutes to go this extra mile saved her from a visit to Lost N Found and made the guest's day.
  • Right tighty, left losey. But sometimes one doesn't know their own strength and righty tighty becomes can't turn on the shower. Jodi was cleaning a room when a guest asked her for help - she had been struggling to turn the shower on and had just plumb given up. Jodi happily gave it a twist and set it losely off so that the guest could easily adjust when and how she would like. The guest was grateful for the help and Jodi quickly and discretely helping her.

March Means Luck of Ogunquit Maine

Pil2

You most certainly do not need a lucky leprechaun to enjoy this March. With Spring skiing, Maine Maple Sunday and St. Patty's Day fun, March is full of excused to venture outside our Ogunquit Hotel. Shake off the cabin fever - or better yet, spa away winter blahs. March means mud season and mud season means great travel deals all over New England.

Our friends at the Frannie Peabody Center announced the 2014 AIDS Walk/Run 5K May 1-4 and we are proud to be a sponsor. What a great cause and great reason to plan a Spring trip to Ogunquit Maine. We also received a wonderful letter from our friends at Dana Farber Cancer Center who received our January Appreciation Donation.

With all these warm feel good reasons for visiting Ogunquit, here is a few other of our favorite reasons to see us in March:

-The Southern Maine coast antiquing 

-Cuddling up to a Craft Beer getaway.

-Awesome concert at Jonathan's in Ogunquit

-Stonewall Kitchen Cooking Classes, especially on Make Me A Chef (there's a discount!)

And while we may not have Leprechauns, we certainly have some amazing team members creating that Meadowmere Resort magic: 

  • Melinda was talking with a guest who just had to say, she had the best sleep and raved about our Maine resort's rooms and pillows. The guest mentioned how her neck always hurts but our pillows were amazing and she had not one bit of pain. Melinda thanked the guest then headed over to see Housekeeping about connecting the guest with our pillow vendor so she could feel just as good at home. The guest was thrilled to have the information - already dreaming of a great night's sleep, no doubt!
  • One of the best reasons to travel is to celebrate. And birthdays are always fun to celebrate! Hannah spotted that one of our regular returning guests was staying over their birthday and had a surprise of Harbor Candy chocolates left in room with birthday wishes.

March Roars into Maine like a Lion

Weatherhorror

March roars in like a lion and out like a lamb. Which with all this polar vortex cold in Southern Maine, we are certainly hanging onto our wooly long johns!

This week we celebrated another wonderful Appreciation weekend at our Ogunquit hotel! Thank you to so many of our guests who come on this special Maine getaways to help raise money for charity. The Susan G Komen Race for A Cure in CT was a guest pick and over $400 was raised to help make a difference. So even though it may be cold outside (still!) guests certainly helped our Maine resort bring some warm and fuzzies to a great cause.

Don't forget this month is a perfect time to warm up fireside at the hotel. Visit us for a March Maine escape and explore the Southern Maine coast antiquing and dining. Or cuddle up to a Craft Beer getaway. Or get those hands warm clapping along to another awesome concert at Jonathan's in Ogunquit.

Course, warm and fuzzies happen all the time at our Ogunquit hotel - it's part of the Meadowmere Resort service. Here's a great example of a little thing making a vacation better: 

 

  • Janet was in the South Meadow building at our Maine resort when she noticed a family struggling with their many bags when starting a stay in our Family Suites. They had food, bags and more to unload. Janet went down to the car to help out so the family could settle into the suite and have their getaway kick off in a great way.
