... a bus across America teaching people about permaculture and resiliency. They converted their bus to run on vegetable oil and used it as a tool to spread the word that communities can work together to be sustainable. As with everyone I've met in America so far, Lesley extended her hospitality and invited me to join her on a road trip tomorrow, she's going to show me Brunswick and some towns north of here on our way ...
It's well documented that communities pull together in times of need. I learnt about a great example of this when I was in Boston. Carol a timebank member told me about neighbors for neighbors.

The website united people who were snowed into their houses or couldn't dig out their cars with people in their area who ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Juniper Hill Inn Ogunquit
Good place to stay especially for the location
The Juniper Inn is located in a perfect spot in Ogunquit. It is walking distance to town, beach and a few restaurants. The path that leads to the beach is a nice walk but my husband and I preferred walking along the main road to the beach. Since we went in early May alot of the town was not open at the full season opportunities but enough was open to keep us entertained for four days. The Juniper reminded us of every other hotel/inn we have stayed in before, it did not stand out nor did it disappoint. I would recommend the Juniper for people who like to be in the middle of everything but still be away from the bustle of town. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We booked a night at the Juniper Hill Inn over April school vacation through Expedia -- at a rate of $92/night according to the reservation. When we checked in the rate was "$142 -- they stated the rate was for 2 adults ONLY and the rest was for my two kids (ages 5 and 8). I found this to be pathetic since it was Mid April. I would have lost the entire cost since I had only made the reservation a day in advance so we were stuck with it. I really woudn't have a problem with this rate in the high season but mid April this was unacceptable. Needless to say we left the next day, went to a full-service HOTEL in Portland and paid significantly less money. I won't go back -- I am a sticklor for customer service and I thought this was rotten. Room was mediocre at best, its a motel with old mattresses and pillows and musty carpeting. No screens on windows to even vent some fresh air in. The best part of the motel was the bath and body works shampoo/conditioner/body lotion they provided. We usually stay at the Ogunquit Resort Motel a few seconds down Rt 1 North, which is all brand new and immaculate, but tried this place for a change. We'll stick to the Ogunquit Resort Motel from now on.
I must preface my comments by stating that I have been going to Maine since I was a young girl. My grandparents owned a summer home in Ogunquit, but sold it about 15 years ago. Since then, I have been staying at the Juniper Hill. This hotel is wonderful. Although it is not plush, there are not any plush hotels in Ogunquit. It is a seaside town, and the main attraction is the gorgeous Ogunquit beach. This hotel is clean, safe and everyone who works there is so friendly. It is within walking distance to everything, including the beach. If you don't feel like walking the trolley stops in front of the hotel. Overall, this resort is fabulous - I would not hesitate recommending it to anyone! This comes from someone who prefers to stay at four or five star resorts when traveling. You will not be disappointed by the Juniper Hill Inn!
Very pleasant surprise
Stopped at the Juniper Hill, without a reservation, based on the clean look of the exterior. Was able to get a room that was clean and had a very comfortable bed. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Price included a light continental breakfast and refreshments in the lobby throughout the day. Location is perfect for walks into town as well as to the beach. Would definitely stay there again.
My husband and I recently stayed at the Juniper Hill Inn[August,2004] and were quite pleased with our room and the entire property. The room was immaculate, roomy, and had great amenities.
Having stayed at the Juniper Hill for a few years, I can attest to the professional and extreme care that all their personel take in welcoming the guests.The location is the best for all around travel to the northern and southern tiers of Ogunquit. A short walk and I mean short... to the main street stores and restaurants. Within a few minutes stroll you are at the Marginal Way, a wonderful ocean side pathway that ends in one of the most incredible coves in Maine. Perkins cove has it all. But enough about Ogunquit, staying at the Juniper Hill makes your stay on the Maine coast so much better. From the two pools and central outdoor spa, to the indoor sauna, health club and indoor pool, there is something for everyone to enjoy. I will be there again this year and look forward to a great time with my friends.
My favorite motel in the state of Maine
Juniper Hill Inn is the most comfortable and friendly motel that I have had the pleasure to stay in. Everything speaks of quality, from the decor and appointments in the rooms to the daily grooming of the grounds. The housekeeping staff and the desk personnel are delightfully friendly and helpful. We have stayed at Juniper Hill for more than 20 years, usually in June and September, and we still eagerly look forward to our next vacation there. Superb dining, beaches and sightseeing all abound within a few miles of the Inn. The large number of returning guests every year is a good indication that this is a favored destination by many people.
Feels like coming home
We have been coming to the Juniper Hill for years, since the children (now grown) were young. We used to come in summer, but now we prefer fall, when much of the inn is closed and we feel like we have the place almost to ourselves. We love the walk down the path to the beach road, and the walk into town in the brisk fall air. The rooms are comfortable, the people are friendly, and it's a great place to relax and experience the changing season. It feels like coming home.
Nice, clean, friendly
I've been staying at the Juniper Hill Inn on business for over 15 years. As a representative for a major Aircraft Engine Manufacturer, I can honestly say that most of my co-workers stay at the Juniper Hill Inn, which speaks volumns. The rooms are always clean, and bright, with large windows and great climate controls, fluffy towels. The grounds are nicely landscaped and rates are very reasonable.
