Here at the Colonial Inn, we’re still in our winter-hibernation mode, but with the days lengthening, the temperatures warming, and 2018 rolling ever onward, we’re getting closer and closer to our spring opening—and we couldn’t be more excited!
There’s no time like the present to start planning your springtime getaway to Ogunquit, Maine, with exceptional accommodations at the last of this seaside village’s grand hotels.
The Spring Experience in Ogunquit
Even as our stretch of Gulf of Maine coast has been lately clobbered (like so much of New England) by nor’easters, spring’s definitely starting to advertise its approach. And believe us: Ogunquit’s just beautiful in the vernal season.
Spring’s a wonderful time, for instance, to walk the Marginal Way, that seashore path linking Ogunquit Beach and Perkins Cove that’s within earshot of the Colonial Inn. Blooming gardens and wildflowers along the route add lovely seasonal fragrance and color to what’s always a gorgeous thoroughfare nestled up against the little coves and headlands.
Between restaurants and art galleries and museums, you’ll find lots to do in Ogunquit all year round, but as spring progresses some of the town’s defining cultural attractions will be reopening their doors for brand-new seasons. The famed Ogunquit Playhouse launches its 2018 program with a rebirth of the long-running revue Smokey Joe’s Café on May 16th. The show, which runs through June 9th, celebrates the iconic songs of the hit-making songwriting duo Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. Settle in for thrilling performances of “Stand by Me,” “Yakety Yak,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Love Potion #9,” and other Leiber and Stoller classics.
On May 1st, meanwhile, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art will once again welcome visitors to its wonderful collection, which includes the works of many well-known Maine artists along with painters, sculptors, photographers, and other creators from across the country. The museum always presents a rich and diverse series of exhibitions, so keep tabs on the website as it unveils the shows for 2018.
