Looking for an ideal holiday gift for a family member or friend? Well, we humbly suggest you can’t do better than a gift certificate for a stay at the Colonial Inn, our spectacularly gorgeous historic hotel smack dab in the heart of Ogunquit, Maine!
Ogunquit, after all, is one of New England’s truly fabled resort villages: a seaside hamlet with a surfeit of scenic beauty, rich history, and vibrant culture. And guests of the Colonial Inn dive deep into the town’s character, given the heritage of our establishment: The Inn has been welcoming visitors to Ogunquit for better than 125 years, and our painstaking $4-million renovation in 2013, which honored the building’s old-school grandeur throughout, has upgraded it for a whole new lifetime’s worth of hospitality.
Giving someone a gift certificate for a Colonial Inn idyll, you’re treating them to gorgeous and centrally located accommodations that put Ogunquit’s best-known attractions right at their fingertips. Shopping at Perkins Cove, taking in a show at the Ogunquit Playhouse, tapping into the region’s remarkable artistic heritage at the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, strolling the splendid oceanfront path of the Marginal Way, hiking up to Mount Agamenticus or elsewhere in our sylvan hinterland, indulging in some of the finest “leaf-peeping” anywhere in the world: These are a mere sampling of the delights that Ogunquit offers its visitors.
And the surrounding area’s full of easy daytripping destinations out of Ogunquit. There’s historic Wells, for instance, with its extensive beaches and the natural wonders of the Wells National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge; Kennebunkport, another absolutely legendary summer resort town; the Nubble Lighthouse at Cape Neddick; and, a short jog across the state line to the south, the charming city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, which includes the Ogunquit Playhouse’s partner venue, the Music Hall, built back in the 1870s.
Accommodations at the Colonial Inn
Meanwhile, the Colonial’s guest rooms and suites—spread between the Main Inn, the Shorebirds, the Garden Grove, and the Beach Rose—make tastefully luxurious homes-away-from-home for Ogunquit vacationers (some of them with Atlantic views!). On-site amenities include our service bar with local beer selections, outdoor heated pool with Jacuzzi, extended wrap-around porch and inviting outdoor spaces. And the entire package comes fueled by our rich hospitality: Our goal is to treat each and every one of our guests as a member of the Colonial Inn’s extended family, and that family includes many who come year after year to stay with us.
