Weekend in Ogunquit

Welcome to Ogunquit MaineThis past weekend Sergio and I packed our bags and joined friends for a fun weekend in Ogunquit, Maine.  As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, Ogunquit is another popular beach town for the LGBT community.  It is a much smaller, less busy option to the craziness that defines Provincetown during the summer months.

I really love going to the beach in Ogunquit but if that isn’t your thing, the nearly 1.5 mile Marginal Way walk is a great alternative, as is spending time in the tiny village shopping, eating or walking down to the more quiet and picturesque – Perkins Cove. Below are some photos from this past weekend’s fun in Ogunquit.

If you have any questions about planning a day trip or longer stay in Ogunquit, Maine – feel free to reach out to me with your questions.

  1. Wasn’t Frannie from Stephen King’s “The Stand” from Ogonquit?

    That’s about the extent of my geographical knowledge of Maine, sadly.

  2. The Abalonia is an 1840’s New England style farmhouse that has been lovingly restored with particular attention to the period detail, including the original post and beams.

    The Ideal Location! Abalonia is located right in the center of the village, only one block to the Ogunquit beach and the entrance to the Marginal Way, Ogunquit’s famous cliff walk leading to Perkins Cove. Yet, the Abalonia is set back from the road, has open gardens so guests are able to peacefully enjoy being in the heart of the village, with its famous restaurants, clubs, and historic movie cinema.

    Amenities Include: All inn rooms have new Flat Screen TVs, individually controlled air conditioners, wireless internet, and heat.

    Our Rooms -Our renovations have uncovered some amazing exposed beams and great character. We have two types of room accommodations: rooms with king sized beds and rooms with queen sized beds. All rooms have private baths.
    We understand it is not easy checking out places online and figuring which one is right for you. If you want an inn that is clean, friendly, and in a great location, you have found your home in Ogunquit!

    We truly strive to give you the best customer service and the best value you have probably not at a hotel, inn or B&B received in years. We are also real. If you want to be left alone on your romantic getaway, you can do that. If you want to be social and hang out with our other guests, you can do that too. The choice is yours. If you have any more questions, please go to our Questions and Answers page.

  3. My only problem with Ogunquit is that they don’t allow dogs on the beach in the summer. We’d usually only go before Memorial Day or after Labor Day (New Year’s Eve 2006/2007 was especially fun!).

  4. We love Ogunquit and all the places you mentioned. It is our new favorite place to go. Maybe we’ll run into you guys there some time.

  5. one of my favourite places – though the Front Porch is pricey considering what you get.
