There are many positives to this "resort" but also room for improvement. Our room in the Ocean Ridge section had a picture-perfect view: the classic Maine cove, with lobster buoys and piney woods. Other pluses include a friendly, helpful staff, warm pool, and a location out of the hubbub of Boothbay Harbor, but just a few minutes drive away. If...

This is a very nice resort. The view from the waterside rooms is spectacular. Breakfast(included)is very good. They should have some solution for lunch and dinner. They are to far away to have an easy meal somewhere. A sandwich and chips would be great to have available. But for the money this is a great choice

A nice resort in a quite location with old and out of date amenities. We booked in the last minute and were happy to find an empty spot in Boothbay.

Thanks for your comments.

Bernie and the staff at this resort were outstanding, they made you feel like you were family.

So glad to hear that enjoyed your visit with us so much. Of course, Bernie was beaming when he saw his name mentioned. He works hard to spend time with each of our guests, especially during his very busy time in the restaurant serving your breakfast buffet. The lobster bake that you enjoyed is always a crowd favorite and we...

We recently spent 2 nights at the Ocean Gate Resort on our vacation in Maine. We were very impressed with the renovated ocean view room overlooking the water (in the Cedar building). Everything in the room was new and well cleaned. The bathroom was small, but very clean. Overall, the grounds, the pool, and the recreational facilities appeared well maintained....

Thanks for your comments. A few of our "economy" rooms are still on the list for renovation including the 4 rooms in our pet friendly Island View building as well as the only non-waterview building, Pine View. I might suggest that you consider trying one of our brand new rooms in the Ocean Ridge building with all new furniture, carpet,...

A very attractive setting in the BoothBay area of Maine. Unfortunately the rooms need updating. There is a lack of insulation in the bathrooms which leads to much noise from the water running, musty smells in the rooms and no microwaves. Since only breakfast was served, this proved to be very inconvienent.
