*** taken from my yelp.com review***
I had never been to Ogunquit and was hard pressed to find something for a single Saturday night, on a holiday weekend. A few of the higher-rated places were booked...sigh... but I could not have been more lucky that they were!
First-off... You cannot beat the location with a stick... or even a baseball bat. You could try... but you would NOT be able to do it. They are within steps of the water, the bars, the restaurants and the all-important local piano bar.
The innkeepers are two of the nicest, kindest most charming folks I have even had the chance to stay with... and I am a HUGE B&B person.
We stayed in the only available room, which was on the third floor... it was a tad bit small, and shares a bath, but considering the last minuteness of our booking- we were extremely happy with the space.
The other rooms looked much larger and were also well appointed. I cannot wait to go back, booking far enough ahead to stay in a larger room with private bath. I tend to take long showers... I will not be rushed.
The ONE thing that is NOT to be missed here is breakfast. I typically skip out on breakfast at most B&Bs. Mostly because I love checking out the local restaurants, but Linda seriously puts the "breakfast" in "bed&breakfast". Absolutely amazing, and nice conversation with the fellow guests as well. Seriously, do NOT miss breakfast!
All-in-all, I am glad that the other places were booked. I don't believe in "meant to be" but finding a room at 16 Beach St sincerely makes me doubt my position on that.

- 16 Beach Street is a classic three-story New Englander style home built in 1920 by the Perkins family. We are a small intimate Inn with five bedrooms. Because of its close proximity to the beach, the Inn is decorated like a beach house in bright cheery colors. The location of the inn is ideal. The trolley stops right outside the door and we are within walking distance to great shops, restaurants, the beach and the Marginal Way.
