... available everywhere, either by the mug or by the bowl. Lobster is big too. You can get Lobster Macaroni Cheese, there are two McDonalds that offer Lobster rolls during August and Dunkin Donuts even trialled a lobster flavoured cream in their doughnuts last year which was not continued as it was not popular - wonder why? Our first stop was at Hampton Beach, a huge white sand beach that was packed full of people despite the fact that there was a lot of wind (tail end of ...
Continuing on with the further adventures of Cranky ole ******* and Me ole Boot, we headed to Old Orchard Beach, or as Deborah called it "Old Orchard Inn". We made the nice mistake of driving down the main drag, crowds of people, places to eat, an amusement replete with a ferris wheel, and all other manner of rides, that would make me throw up if I ever took a ride on them. What a very busy place!! It was nice to observe, but just a little ...
... 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.
... there dressed in period clothing to tell us about the cemetery, who was buried there, and some of the events of that day. He explained that none of the twenty hanged for crimes of witchcraft were buried in the cemetery. They were buried in shallow graves near where they were hanged. Those buried there were important people at that time like John Hawthorne. It was sad to think that all those people died due to false accusations. On the way out of town we took ...
The 'Yard Sale':
A shortage of 'Welcome Centers' was hitting me with my needs of the day, I tried one only to find out it was something to do with the forestry in the area... I wasn't all that interested...
Finally, it being almost the end of the long day, I decided to make a little detour in New Hampshire to visit Neil Peckham. He's a contact I have for my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Meadowmere Resort Ogunquit
My wife, daughter and son (4 and 1) and I stayed here for four nights in July 2004.
I was really impressed by the staff here. They were all very helpful - from the associate who warmed up our left overs in the microwave to the associate who suggested a great place to get some late night eats! I work as a Manager for a luxury hotel in Boston, so I have a little insight into this. We had a few problems during our stay, but each was handled professionally and with courtesy. Our jacuzzi was making a load scream, engineering was immediately sent up, thanked us for reporting the problem (very important!!!) and attempted to fix it. Although he was not able to fix the problem, the front desk offered us the use of the room across the hall. We were able to use that on the morning after we discovered the jacuzzi could not be fixed, but (BIG PROBLEM HERE) the room was occupied when we came back later that night even though the front desk associate had told us we could use it for the extent of our stay. Luckily, we heard the TV going on inside, so we did not attempt to enter, but that could have been very uncomfortable. Being in the hospitality industry, I understand that mistakes can happen and as it was late I decided not to make (too much of) a fuss. *A word of advice, don't get upset with an associate - while the may be able to help you out of a situation, they don't get paid enough to be berated by guests - that's what Managers are paid for...and trust me, we earn our keep. Anyway...on with the story...Management did discount us for the inconvenience. It really was not as big of a deal as it could have been, because the Meadowmere has a gorgeous roman spa. Speaking of spa services - the services provided at the Meadowmere are second to none. The staff was informative, articulate, helpful, SKILLED, and professional. Even the Massage rooms were well thought out, creating a peaceful and relaxing environment. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The price is more than reasonable for the service and amenities that the Meadowmere offers.
Super for families
My husband and I stayed there and truly enjoyed meeting all the wonderful other guests and staff, this is a true gem for all, we stayed in the motel section of the complex, which was just lovely, fresh, clean & easy to navigate around the grounds & into town. The trolley stops within steps of the complex - a real pleasure - give it a try!
Our friends came to visit with their 2 kids and just loved it - they are staying there next trip to Maine!
Don't go anywhere, except the Meadowmere I love it.... and you will to.
I give it five stars, if you have children it is best place for all.
Their is everything you need in one place, clean and peaceful and the staff they are wonderful.
Meadowmere, a Great Place to Stay
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Meadowmere. The staff is cheerful and helpful; the resort is beautifully decorated and the grounds are lovely; the continental breakfast was generous; Perkins Cove is easy to get to by trolley, which stops at the resort.

Very clean and nicely furnished. took our in-laws there as a birthday gift, and they loved it also.the breaksfast served in the pub was excellent. lots of choices and the food was great. cute little pub also. very warm and inviting.the roman spa was great and lobby was great. lots of places to sit and relax. apple cider and apples in the lobby were a great welcome.a special treat was the movie theater. saw a first rate movie there and it was a lot of fun going from the movie theater to our room.hope to go again soon when the rates go down in the fall. don't miss this place......
Great place to stay in ogunquit
going back to the meadowmere today for the second time this summer....rooms were comfortable.. but what really made the place special was that there was so much to do right there..indoor and outdoor pool....indoor and outdoor jacuzzi...a large gym that was excellent... plus a steam room and a sauna...take time to get a spa treatment too while you are there....it's so great you might not want to leave and venture down to the beach
We were very pleased with the meadowmere. It was light, airy and well kept. There are two pools, indoor & outdoor. there is also a nice landscaped flower garden area outside of the jacuzzi which was very relaxing & beautiful.We felt the price for our room w/king bed & jacuzzi was very fair @ $129/nt. A room w/out the jacuzzi would have been $99 however this was just before peak season in the begininng of July. The room was beautifully decorated. What we did miss was having a balcony. Also, the view from the room was of route 1 however we felt these were small details, low on our priority list.Location also suited our needs. It is within walking distance to Perkins cove & the town center. It does not have an ocean view & it is a bit of a hike to the beach (10min approx) which was not a prob for us.
We love the Meadowmere resort. We stayed there two nights in the dead of winter. There was plenty to do indoors without leaving the site. Our family of four (two small kids ages 1 and 3) went swimming in the indoor pool, watched Disney movies in the indoor theater, and took a dunk in the Roman bath. After kiddies went to bed, the parents took turns working out at the gym (new equipment and room), and sampled the sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi.
During the day, we walked along the cliff walk at the beach and checked out the town.
A good getaway from Boston.
some day we will splurge and stay in one of the rooms with fireplace and jacuzzi....
The Meadowmere is a very nice place, clean rooms and nice staff. There is a lounge, gym and gameroom for you to use. The only thing I would change is the price. Its alittle pricey in comparison with some of the other resorts in the area. A nice place to stay, though.
