... odd in that there is no state tax. I think we would compare this to our GST but each state sets their own tax. Instead they charge property owners very high property tax (rates). Annual rates on a $350k property are about $12k per year. To recoup some of this cost a lot of people rent their holiday homes out for several weeks over summer. Weekly rental for a beachside property at peak season is around $4k. York Beach, in Maine, was not as commercialised or as crowded as ...
... the quintessential eating place, packed to the hilt with people, and lots of vendors to get anything to eat, except poutine, of course. We both had bacon-wrapped scallops, very greasy, but tasty. After lunch, we took a trip around Boston and Cambridge on the Beantown Trolley tour bus. It was very interesting and historically informative, and the driver was very funny. On the way back from Boston our train speed was reduced to 40 miles ...
... for me but great for the checkbook. Today we went on a garden tour in Kittery. I do not have garden envy but I love to live vicariosly through others gardens. These were some of the best.
... a beautiful old rock church that overlooked the ocean. There was actually an area by the water with outside pews. Now that would be an awesome service! In our little five minute walk, a nice policeman pulled up behind us and was about to give us one of those pretty yellow sips when we walked up. He told us that we could not stop anywhere along the road.
A little further up the road, we came along the curve that allows for a wonderful view of President ...

Doesn't get much better than this. Very clean and well kept, although foot traffic along the upper deck can be heard quite easily.
We were located on the upper deck of the starboard wing. A deck runs all around this level with chairs at each unit. The view is wonderful from this level of the coastline along Marginal Way and the beach. We even saw surfers riding the waves.

Historical Traveler Reviews The Anchorage By the Sea Ogunquit
This place is kid heaven-indoor pool, mulit-level kiddie pool, heated outdoor pool. Decent snack bar poolside. Bar service at the pool for frazzled adults. It's right on the sea and great for long walks which can accomodate strollers. The only downside was the room conditions-there was actually an iron burn mark on the rug, no closet, and stained bathroom curtains. But your kids won't care and they'll have the time of their little lives!
Great Ocean views from poolside but room conditions are lacking
Incredible views of the ocean and great outdoor and indoor pool facilities. The rooms, however, are another story. Shabby conditions from the beds to poor air conditioning. But as a halfway point to Bar Harbor, it's worth the stop!
3 rooms cottage
Ask for the 3 room cottage.off season price are ok. It's very nice and super for kids. Sleep 7 people. Cutel kitchen, 2 living room, 2 bathroom....very ''Maine '' style. we go there every year.
A beautiful place in a beautiful town, and I will return there, BUT:rooms should be upgraded with central air, instead of an air conditioner in the wall that you have to stand in front of to use the sink, anda ridiculous 1 towel per person enforced limit at the pool ($20/towel if not turned in at the pool, and the towels are thin, plain white; who'd want them, anyway?).it's a motel, and for 200 bucks a nite, they should do better, but there's no incentive, since the hotel is heavily booked.
Loved the ocean view
This hotel has a spagtacular view of the ocean. The room was very nice and the service was great. We went in the off season and it was beautiful. Looking forward to going there this summer. A great place
My Stay at the Anchorag by the Sea
I recommend this hotel due to the beautiful
location and nice grounds. We stayed at a good
discount becaue we went off-season. The
hotel is right above the famous Marginal Way
walk which takes you on a walk overlooking
the Atlantic Ocean. If you like the ocean, you
will probably enjoy this hotel.
The hot tub was located outdoors, which was
cold in the off season.
I didn't think the service was that great but
it was OK.
In my opinion, the hotel could be kept up
a little better on the outside, but since we were
off-season it is probably re-painted right
before the busy spring and summer seasons.
The room was very nice and some rooms offer
either a side or full frontal ocean view, for
which you will pay more.
Hint: go off-season. Ask for the least expensive
room available that has an ocean view. Bring
walking shoes for the Marginal Way walk.
Enjoy the indoor swimming pool also - great
We spent two nights here in July and found the property to be excellent. The location is beautiful on a cliff overlooking the sea, and everything is walking distance from the hotel.
I'ts the my favorite place to vacation
I highly recomend it to you or anyone you know! You will have the time of your life! My favorite part about the hotel is the 30 person spa!
Enjoyed everything - nice location on the ocean, close to the village, short ride to Portaland - try the winter package.
Can't wait to visit you again...
Visited with you this July and had a wonderful time.
