We really enjoyed our stay at Ocean Gate. The views are tremendous. It was wonderful to wake up each morning and look at the water. This was our first trip to the area, we hope to come back next year! Great secluded location, beautiful scenery and a very short drive into Boothbay Harbor.

Wow, where to begin??? When we checked in, a young man named Isaac at the front desk was exceptional. Every time I ever went to the office for anything, either he or a young lady from Macedonia were working and both were helpful and friendly as can be. Truly, from the moment we got there until the moment we left,...

You're AWESOME for writing such a nice review! Maybe you picked up the phrase from Isaac at the Front Desk who uses it incessantly! :) Both he and Tamara are great additions to our team. I'm glad that you took the time to notice and comment. I'm sure they both will be delighted! Frank

Stopped here at the end of a multi-city road trip and our first time in Maine. Our stay here was perfect to get away from the larger cities. We were greeted with a smile when we checked in and the employee even walked out of the office to direct us to our room and to explain the layout of the...

We spent a night here on our way to Bar Harbor and were pleased that we did. The Ocean Gate is in a semi-secluded area which provides a nice quiet setting. Our room had a good view of an ocean cove and we were able to watch the tides rise and fall. From our room it was a short stroll...

My best way of knowing whether or not I've loved a place is if I don't want to leave when it comes time to check out. I definitely did not want to leave Ocean Gate. The setting is fantastic. It's quiet, secluded, and the water is a constant presence. Our room was well appointed, and the staff was really friendly....

Stayed here last week. Beautiful property with a great view. Rooms were standard, nothing fancy. However very clean. The pool was pristine. Kayaking the harbor was great. Our balcony overlooked the water and was great. Breakfast was standard, but very good. I would absolutely come back. Tennis court was in very good shape.

Loved the resort, it was not a modern place, kind of laid back and quiet. The pool was the cleanest I have ever been to, did not even stink of chlorine! The room was not modern, but had a beautiful view and private balcony. No beach, but use of canoes were wonderful. very comfortable beds and very clean.

Happy Anniversary! Thanks for spending such an important date with us here at Ocean Gate! We work hard to keep everything fresh and clean so thanks for making note of our newly renovated pool area. We've recently added the new Simmons Beauty Rest beds to all of our guest rooms. Guests, such as you, seem to really appreciate their comfort....
