Chill Out in Ogunquit, Maine this Summer!

Pool2

The dog days of summer might just be here early. Keeping cool on these hot July days can be challenging. Of course, our Ogunquit Maine hotel just so happens to have a few good ways ot stay cool. Here are a few helpful hints that will help you to “chill out” when escaping on your Maine vacation:

  • Outdoor Pool with umbrellas, multi position chaise lounge chairs and delicious food from our West Meadow Pub fingertips away. It's an oasis for all to enjoy. There in pool bench seating and even an area by the stairs for the little ones to cool off.
  • Head to the East Meadow back yard featuring multiple grills for a traditional summer cook out. And since no one likes to visit the grocery store on vacation, just pop into the Village Food Market when heading back from the beach. With fridge in room, there's even a spot for leftovers.
  • Take in a show with the South Meadow on-site TV Room featuring stadium seating and daily showings. Plus there's old fashioned fun - puzzles, board games and trivia games - so you can unplug and unwind.

In Ogunquit Maine, at our Ogunquit hotel, the cool breeze from the Atlantic ocean is just a 5 minute walk - You can stroll along the Marginal Way taking in the rocky Maine Coast.

In Ogunquit Village enjoying the unique boutique shops, delicious ice cream and of course famous Maine Lobster Rolls! 

Finally, if you really need to escape the heat, set sail from Perkins Cove and explore the beauty of Ogunquit Maine from the sea. Easy enough to take a dip!

Rest assured... at our Ogunquit Maine hotel, we understand that finally taking that family vacation means everyone needs a little rest and relaxation.  Here are a few examples that of making our guests feel right at home this past week:

  • One guest joining us this week had an accident at home and arrived to us on crutches – Wuitea surprise! He was determined not to let the injury keep him from visiting the Meadowmere!  As Rowan was tiding up his room she noticed that a bottle of wine was sitting in an ice bucket full of water - the ice had melted.  Rowan, knowing the importance of keeping white wine cool, emptied out the expired ice and refilled the bucket for the guest to enjoy when they returned for the evening.
  • ImagesYEHMWDW9A regular guest, who often visits us each week, returned after cancelling a reservation for the week before. It was so very unlike them to cancel and we were concerned. Upon making the alterations for the guest, Hannah learned that the reason for the cancellation was due to losing their dog of twelve years.  Knowing the heart-ache of losing a best friend, Hannah pulled together a card with sympathy from all the staff and box of chocolates to sweeten their stay. 
  • Families often find refuge at our Ogunquit Maine hotel during the summer heat!  One particular father was taking his little one for a stroll along the air conditioned hallways.  Janet, a member of our housekeeping team, was getting ready for a busy day when she noticed them.  Knowing that little one’s tend to nap at a certain time she inquired with the father if there was a special time he’d like the room cleaned today.  “Oh Yes” he said as he informed her of the best time and ensuring the little one a peaceful sleep!

July 4th Ogunquit Fireworks - Hot Hot Hot

FireworksJuly is HOT. The summer heat has arrived in Ogunquit, which makes the ocean breeze at the outdoor pool even better at our Ogunquit hotel. Long sunny days in Maine are exactly what you want on your July 4th Maine vacation. This year, the fireworks in Ogunquit Maine begin at 915pm at the Main Beach with DJ spinning tunes before and after the show. And what a fireworks show it is! One of Maine's best fireworks shows has long been Ogunquit's fireworks. There is someting truly special about Ogunquit Beach, Marginal Way and the ability to stroll from the Meadowmere to the show and back.  Often, guests are relieved to find that our hotel's central Ogunquit location is just far enough to avoid the crowds hanging around lawns and hotel spaces and return home to rest after the show.

Here are some tips on planning your Ogunquit Maine fireworks experience:

  • Pack those dancing shoes: Ogunquit's fireworks features live DJ both before and after the show. Family friendly and a fun way to pass the time after nabbing the best spot early and waiting for the crowds to clear out post show.
  • Bring the Picnic Basket: As in bring it along in the car. You can stock the basket with goodies from Village Food Market so a picnic dinner can be enjoyed along the many viewing spots - beach, walking path, Marginal Way, Beach Street. Plus, there is a perfect picnic spot at the Ogunquit Heritage Museum for the next day.
  • Don't Feed the Birds: Of course, you probably had no intention to feed those pesky seagulls. We mean the Piping Plovers in Ogunquit. Stay away from the beach dunes - these endangered species love nesting from mid June til late August and much like us, Piping Plovers love Ogunquit Beach. They don't mind the fireworks show, but they do mind company. Keep to the sand and parking lot.
  • Be Patient: Fireworks are tricky with over 25,000 viewers and Mother Nature. The Ogunquit Chamber, who supports the fireworks, wants everyone to enjoy safely. Keep the sparklers and personal fireworks (which are not allowed in Ogunquit) at home. Settle in, enjoy the amazing company of friends and family and let the experts set up, check the wind and put on a wonderful holiday show.

In Ogunquit Maine, at our Ogunquit hotel, the Ogunquit fireworks are just a 10-2 minute walk. And the trolley runs to take the family to beach area up to an hour beforehand. July 4th is an All American holiday and Maine is an a great place to celebrate. Freedom, ingenuity, determination. Maybe it is the spirit of Maine that helps us take goodcare of your vacation!

  • RomanspafamilyThe Great Race, running from Ogunquit to Florida, recently stayed at the Meadowmere Resort. We had a lot of fun looking at the vintage cars and talking with the drivers and owners. Janet was admiring one of the cars when the owner came by, very upset that he did not have neough rags to polish his car. Janet immediately got the guest a bag of our rags to shine up the car. He was so grateful and impressed at the problem solving and quick thinking.
  • The Meadowmere Resort is a family hotel, with game rooms, pools and TV room. Often Mom and Dad pack up the kids for the first time and join us. One such family was with us for four nights and on the third night, Kyle noticed that the dad was in charge of the early morning watch, brining the kids down to the lobby so mom could sleep in. The gentleman looked a bit tired and was looking for the remote to the lobby TV. Kyle happily helped setup the kids with morning cartoons and then caught the dad about to pour himself a coffee. Kyle stopped him as the pot was decaf and let him know he has the good stuff about ready to come out. The dad, still sleeply, hadn't even noticed. The guest was very grateful that the caffinated version was on the way just as the sun was coming up.

Ogunquit Maine Revvs up for Vintage Car Fans

GreatraceVroom, vroom! There is something special about a classic car. And some of the cars that joined us for the Great Race 2014 were so old, they had wooden wheels! Wow!  Ogunquit Maine was the starting line for the Great Race, which began at the Main Beach in Ogunquit and will complete 2100 miles later in Florida. Check out our Ogunquit resort's facebook page for images and links. With over 100 vintage cars and an enormous support staff, Ogunquit certainly kicked off the season in good company! Summer at our Maine resort is a special time and starting the summer with tommy cars, punch buggies, cadillacs, bentleys and hudson cars made tis past week at the Meadowmere Resort an amazing experience. Now this was a multi year planning process to create the 2014 Great Race - but that doesn't mean a car fan has to work that hard to enjoy Southern Maine.

Here are some tips on planning a car club outing in Ogunquit:

  • Get together: Reserve early enough to have a block of rooms - say 20 or more - set aside. This allows the group you are bringing to Maine to be close together. One of the most popular locations at the Meadowmere Resort is the Country Squire. With shared patios, the club can hang out outside together, as well as have easy access to the cars. Heck, our hotel even has a hose hook up just in case there's a little dirt in a wheel!
  • Get Food: One of the most challenging activities to plan is a group meal. Renting a restaurant or finding one that is large enough can be time consuming and expensive. Have no fear - the Eat Drink Be Merry package can be modified to accommodate a group with breakfast onsite (so one can get up and get going - see point 3) and dinner at Jonathan's Restaurant (so one can have fun with all the club members - see point 1). Best part is after driving up to the Meadowmere Resort, your car club can register and unwind with a wine welcome.
  • Get Driving: Southern Maine is perfect for day trip driving from the Meadowmere Resort. From corvette clubs to porsche to classic cars to Harleys (hey bikes count too!), no matter what you drive, you will enjoy Ogunquit. To the north, Kennebunkport, South Portland, Portland have museums, shopping and scenic drives by Walker Point, lighthouses and Old Port. To the west, Sanford, Berwicks and Eliot have antiques, country side and some of the best spots to grab an ice cream cone. To the south, York, Kittery and Portsmouth have beaches, history and Mt. Agamenticus, Southern Maine's highest point. An easy drive to feel on top of the world. And not a bad spot to enjoy that ice cream cone!

In Ogunquit Maine, at our Ogunquit hotel, a car or motorcycle club can explore all day and relax all night. And on the off chance that you need a break from driving, the Meadowmere Resort is a few minutes walk to Marginal Way, Ogunquit village and Ogunquit Beach. Sometimes a walk is just the right pace to enjoy our special Maine home. Speaking of parking, here's this weeks service stories :

  • Romanspa2Joining our Ogunqut hotel for the first time can be disorientating. You've just arrived, want to park, settle in , unpack and unwind. Whitney noticed a guest checking in to the Main building was a bit turned around. While helping the guest find her room, she asked about help with the luggage. The guest then remembered that her sister had been in the parking lot this whole time waiting to figure out thebest place to park. The guest couldn't believe she had forgetten all about that! Whitney said please do not worry and then went to get the sister, directing the car to the ideal place and showing the sister where the room was. The guest inside was so grateful, she gave Whitney a big hug.
  • Our Roman Spa oftens is exciting. So much so that guests often forget to bring along pool towels. When Trisha spotted guests looking for the Roman Spa, she noticed that they did not have an pool towels. The guest sthen asked where to get them - Trish let the guests know that towels are available at the front desk but she would be happy to go get them towels so they could begin to enjoy the Spa. The guests were thrilled to be able to jump right in!

Maine Strawberry Festival A June Treat in Ogunquit

StrawberryJune blooms. The days are long, the temperatures tease of summer and the farmer's markets return. Maine is an agricultrual state - potatoes are just the start. Just minutes from our Ogunquit hotel, one of Maine's favorite festival happens the last weekend in June - The Strawberry Festival. Celebrating the little red delicious strawberry, locally grown and delightful. Come up and see us in June to enjoy the Strawberry Festival and some of our favorite Farms.

Here are some tips on planning a Maine Strawberry Festival trip:

  • Pack those dancing shoes: The festival features live swing music and your toes will be tapping. Plus this is an excellent way to work up an appetite for more Strawberry Shortcake.
  • Feel Crafty: The festival doesn't just feature delicious little strawberries. It also is home to over 120 artisans boothes. From homemade goodies to art, you can stroll the gifts while trying the amazing strawberry pie. Hmm - with 120 boothes, we think that is definitely a two slice trip.
  • Bring the Kids: Whether it is the grand kids, your little ones or the kid in you. Bouncy castles, hay rides and good outdoor family fun await. No battery charging necessary - unless you count fueling up on strawberry ruhbarb.
  • Down Home on the Farm: From Beach Plum Farm to York's Farmer's Market, Southern Maine has a farm scene worth exploring. Take in ocean views as Roby Littlefield's vision for a community farm comes to life in season. Stock up on healthy snacks of fresh fruit for the beach Saturday from 9a to 1p. And since the artisan Stonewall Kitchen is right there, maybe a jam or jelly too. Unless of course, you are waiting for those homemade strawberry jams at the festival.

In Ogunquit Maine, at our Ogunquit hotel, Strawberry Festival is just 15 minutes away in South Berwick, a beautiful drive past farms and the wandering York River. And our team will be here to welcome you home and make your festival getaway special:

  • Creating memories is second best part of a vacation. The sharing of them is number one. When a guest was so excited to share his trip with friends and family that he brought 11 Ogunquit postcards, Hannah generously took care of providing complimentary postage for the guest as a thank you. She could see how happy he was to be with us in Maine and excited to send a personal card to each person.
  • TissuesGetting everyone together for the ride home can be daunting. Checking and rechecking that every swimsuit and toothbrush makes the return trip home from Maine. Jackie was cleaning a departing room whenshe noticed that a bag had been left in the fridge. Rather than throw the bag out right away, she placed it on her cart just in case. A few minutes later the guest returned worried that the items were lost - especially as they were her mother's and important. Jackie happily turned to give her the bag, safely waiting on her cart. The guest was relieved and very thankful for the extra care given, even after the guest had checked out.
  • Allergies? Cold? Either one can make a vacation miserable. When Janet spotted that a mom in the family suite had run out of tea and cold medicine, she took the time to get extra tea, a mug and tissues for her. Leaving these set up in the room with a note to get well soon and relax when with us in Ogunquit.

In Ogunquit Maine, at our Ogunquit hotel, Dad's Day is a place for great memories. And with our central, yet secluded location, you and he can jump into the fun of Ogunquit village, Ogunquit Beach and more, then return to unwind poolside. And our team will be there to notice the little touches that make a difference:

  • WinecheersCelebrations at the Meadowmere happen often. And we just love to be a part of them - from birthdays to anniversaries to just the joy of a vacation. As Janet was working she spotted that one of the Luxury Suite guests were celebrating with wine and were using plastic cups. She headed down to the West Meadow Pub to see if wine glasses could be brought to the room. The guests were so surprises when Janet arrived bearing wine glasses and wishing them a great stay.
  • Arriving at a hotel can be confusing - new place after traveling and you are ready to just relax. Whitney was preparing a room when the guest next door arrived. They were just settling in and wanted a luggage rack. Whitney happily showed them where in the room the rack was, then noticed that they had quite a bit of luggage. She offered to bring a second one and the guests were happy to have it. A few minutes later, they returned, struggling with the slider door to enjoy their balcony. Whitney was happy to paused again and show them how to open the lock and enjoy the view of the outdoor pool.

You can learn more about our eco-friendly hotel  at our website - but nothing compares to a behind the scene tour of the resort, complete with solar panels and an inside view.

Our Maine resort takes the time to share the many efforts that are happening in the Ogunquit community to preserve Ogunquit Beach, Marginal Way, the southern Maine water shed and more. When you join us to enjoy ocean views from our Ogunquit hotel, you become part of this remarkable place and, we like to think, this place becomes part of you. So together we can learn and share how to take wonderful care of this beautiful place by the sea we call Ogunquit Maine and home.

Summitview3And at the Meadowmere Resort, our Ogunquit hotel isn't just about a great location to see ocean views. We also know that by taking good care of our home, we take better care of you. Here are some great stories to share:

  • Guests often travel together with friends. Hannah assist a guest looking for her friend - taking the time to locate the other guest at the outdoor hot tub.  Later that day, everyone was gathered in our lobby to enjoy cards when the same woman wanted to return to her room. Hannah immediately realized why she couldn't go find her friend earlier and that her husband would have to stop playing to go with her - The guest has two oxygen tanks. Hannah offered to walk with the guest so that the cards could continue and she would have company walking safely back to her accommodations. The whole party was thrilled at the caring, attentative help that Hannah provided.
  • Whitney knows that it is important to notice the small things - they can make a difference to a vacation. Guests were staying with us and were upset that a noisy neighbor the night before had kept them up. When they let us know, the team moved their accommodations for their second night. While cleaning the first room, Whitney noticed that they had used all of the coffee. She returned to their new room to add the extra touch of extra coffee and a note letting them know she was happy to be the housekeeper for their second room and if she could help in any way, beyond extra coffee, to let her know. The guests rested easy after moving and were thrilled at the carefull attention and kindness.

OutdoorpoolpeopleOne of the things hotels in Maine look forward to is Memorial Day weekend. From Maine ocean view resorts to lake side cabins, Mainers love Memorial Day weekend. The grilling, the warmer temps, the end of mud season. It's time to get outdoors without layers. So everyone, including our resort in Maine thinks 'Good times ahead'! Hotels in Maine are open and looking forward to welcoming guests from all over. (Did you know our resort in Maine will host weddings from England, Californian and Texas this year? Wow!) Maine is not just a bucket list vacation, it's a romantic destination too. And a romantic escape is effortless in Ogunquit where you can enjoy Maine ocean views steps from our resort along Marginal Way, walk along the beach and enjoy everything from ice cream cones to a real Maine lobster together.

Memorial Day Weekend in Ogunquit Maine signals the start of the summer season - so as you are unwinding, we are just getting started. BBQ's, the outdoor pool officially opens, seasonal breakfast begins, the AIDS quilt makes its only stop in Maine at the Ogunquit town hall, Judy Collins performs at Jonathan's. Long weekends like Memorial Day weekend were made for unwinding, unplugging and recharging but maybe not quite for standing still. After all, there are great Maine vacation memories to be made!

And even if you cannot plan a Maine vacation to enjoy the ocean view steps from our Maine resort on the holiday weekend, there are midweek May packages: Golf, Spa, Dining, Make Me A Chef. Take that quick Spring trip and let us help you unwind.

  • The Meadowmere Resort has long been a family vacation favorite. Named Best Southern Maine Family Resort by Family Fun magazine, our Ogunquit hotel features oodles of amenities for the little ones. Of course Mom and Dad are traveling too and sometimes all those toys from home that helped make the car ride so good, end up scattered all over the hotel room. Janet was cleaning a family's room and the stuffed animals were everywhere. She carefully searched under beds and arranged the toys on the bed to welcome everyone back after a day of fun. Giving Mom and Dad one less thing to worry about or step on! (And here's a tip - if you forget a cherished toy at home, check out Animal Instinct in Ogunquit for a new addition to the toy family. It's a wonderful local shop - you'll feel like a kid)
  • KidbookOur team at our Ogunquit resort realize that one of the many reasons to travel is to recharged. In fact, it seems some of our guests are so in need of rest, coffee is the only way to get started. Rowan noticed that one of her guests had gone thru extra coffee and she made sure to give them plenty for the next morning's tank. The guest was so happy that she sought Rowan out to say thank you for such a wonderful personal touch. And if you need a pick me when in Ogunquit and our handy in room coffee makers or wonderful Maine made coffee is not nearby, try Bread & Roses or Village Food Market - Ogunquit features local shops, no Starbucks here.)
  • At the Meadowmere Resort in Ogunquit, one of our many hotel amenities is a library area filled with puzzles, old fashioned board games and real books. We know that sometimes a trip back in time and away from anything iphone, ipad or internet makes the best memories and gives true relaxation. Janet was helping a guest who mentioned she just was not finding a book to her liking in our library. Janet told her about Annie's Book Stop on Route 1 in Wells and then retreived the phone number with directions so that the guest could find that perfect book. The guest was impressed with the thoughtful suggestion and extra step!
