Our guests often say it best...
We are so proud to have been a part of countless wonderful Maine vacations. Our goal is to send every guest home raving.
To whom it may concern,
My boyfriend and I would just like to thank you for providing us with an amazing get-a-way. We traveled up to Boothbay from Lincoln, Rhode Island to attend a friend's wedding. We chose Ocean Point Inn simply as a convenience and as a hotel that fit into our price range. We did NOT expect such amazing service, hospitality, and comfort ability! We honestly had the time of our lives, and even played hooky at work when Monday rolled around to stay an extra night! As corny as this sounds.... on our long drive home we thought back on all the fun times we had in Boothbay and at Ocean Point the 4 days we were there ... and wrote a little poem about it. I just wanted to share it with you as a thank you for such a wonderful extended weekend you provided us.
A Weekend at Ocean Point Inn
Share it with the one you love
Sit in an Adirondack chair
Be grateful, and thank the heavens above
Safe and together, you two can be here
Have your morning coffee by the bay
Become memorized by the water, so blue
Discuss your goals and plans for each day
Don't let a single moment pass you
Hold hands every chance you get
Stroll by the shore before your reservation
Admire the romantic, colored sunset
Make this an unforgettable vacation
Kayak for the morning and enjoy the sun
Work as a team, and you'll make it
Then enter Boothbay's town for some fun
Find some blueberry pie, they home-make it!
Make sure you spend some time by the pool
And peak in the pond to see a duck or a frog
Feel the breeze, so nice and so cool
Listen for a boat hidden by fog
Whether you're in Hatchard House 3 or Westwind E
Farmhouse, Glimpse, or Seakist
These quaint, cozy rooms will guarantee
A relaxing time you can't miss
Share a bottle of wine on your last night
Reminisce on how lovely it's been
Steal some kisses in the moon light
You won't regret your stay at the Ocean Point Inn !
Thank you for everything :)

“Ocean Point Inn is our absolute favorite place to stay when in Boothbay Harbor area, if not all of Maine. We look forward to each and every trip we make.” - Christopher & Cindy, VT -Summer 2011
“You have a terrific place. We have stayed there for a couple of days each year for almost ten years. We love the view, the Adirondack chairs, the complimentary morning coffee, the buffet breakfast. Your employees have always been friendly and helpful. The accommodations are not the Hyatt Regency but they are always clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. If I had one comment for improvement it would be that it often seems that your website often reports you as being fully booked when you are not. It seems to take a little perseverance to get a room booked. I'll bet many web visitors, assuming you are booked, go on to the next hotel, depriving you of business when you really do have openings. You really ought to look into that somehow. Thanks again for a nice visit!” - John, VT - Summer 2011
“We don't want to go elsewhere. We know what we are getting at OPI and it is always the same comfortable getaway!” - Donald and Barbara, VT - Summer 2011

“The view from our room and porch was amazing, look
one way and there was the small bay and turn your head and there was the
ocean. Lovely setting and I enjoyed walking Shore Road in the mornings.

welcome. Thank you for a lovely vacation setting. Your website also gave
so much information for planning things to do in the area.” - Sally, GA

I was advised that the room I reserved was "smaller" but found it perfect for the two of us during our stay. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. Front desk staff arranged to have daily desert special available for our pick-up hours after dining room had closed and was very accommodating when we were delayed checking out. Thank you all for a wonderful experience. We hope to visit again in the coming years.” – John, NE - Summer 2011

And I would personally like to thank you all for a great stay and I will be back even if it’s myself for a little r.n.r. Thanks” – Stephen, MA - Summer 2011

"Maine’s Ocean Point Inn delivers unfussy oceanfront lodging and dining with memorable sunset views"
By Hilary Nangle on August 28, 2010
Woke to the chorus of gulls cackling and lobster boats chugging the other morning, a natural alarm clock at the Ocean Point Inn in East Boothbay, Maine. My dad and I took advantage of the deal I told you about the other day at this oceanfront inn, lodge, and cottages, and I’m here to report that it’s a steal... Read full story
Oct 10, 2010 - Another Wonderful Stay at Your Inn
Hello Beth and David Dudley and Staff, Once again my husband and I would like to Thank You for another wonderful stay at your Inn. I realize you deal with many people and may not remember us , but we decided to go for a quick couple of days on the spur of the moment. Somehow we always end up at Ocean Point, we know what to expect and you always deliver! In our busy lives even the shortest of stays gives perspective and great joy to our lives, and it is because of you and your wonderful staff that is able to happen. We hope you have a wonderful season off and a Blessed upcoming Holiday Season!!! Best Wishes until Next Year, Lisa and Jim Leonardo
"September 7, 2010
Dear Dave and Beth,
Thank you for the great memories our family have of Ocean Point Inn. Returning to your resort for twenty years is a tribute to fine hospitality and friendship you and your staff have shown us.
Do you know that when ever any member of our family has been once, or 20 times they all want to return again (All 33 of us have enjoyed a stay at OPI)!
As we look back at this season and our past visits we hope also that your dreams have been fulfilled and that you will enjoy continued success and good health in future.
Mom, Karl, Wendy and all the Spooner and Sak family and friends."
“It was a wonderful, wonderful, vacation, we are looking forward to a longer stay next summer. From Elizabeth, who handled our reservation, she was so helpful, to the dining staff, the housekeepers, everything was so great. Our room was perfect, everything so very clean and comfortable. The front desk staff so nice. Our first stay but we will be back every year!” - Anna, Manchester, NH - Summer 2010
“We love your location and inn. It is so tranquil and peaceful, which is exactly what we are looking for compared to our hectic lives. We love the location, far enough from town, but close enough to get there when we want to go. We love walking the roads and the ability to sit at the seawall and read, nap or just take time to enjoy the scenery. I just wish we could visit more often.” - Paul, Rome, GA - Summer 2010
“We loved the Ocean Point Inn! The hotel and the staff were wonderful! I am a travel agent and have been to many hotels and the consistency of the entire operation at this hotel was excellent. The hotel was clean and well staffed and all the staff was friendly and helpful. Kate in the dining room even offered sweaters to our children in case they got cold while dining! The breakfast and the dinners were of great quality as well. We look forward to our next stay.” - Wendy, Burlington, MA - Summer 2010
“We LOVE Ocean Point Inn -- this was our fifth year coming up and we do look forward to it all year. It goes without saying that the setting is wonderful! I really like the mix of ages and types of guests that come, and the always friendly, helpful staff. We love the idea that we can be as lazy or as active as we like at any time -- we can go be tourists in town, or just feel at home in "our" cottage. Many thanks!” - Linda & Jim, Wallingford, CT - Summer 2010
“This is our 17th trip to Ocean Point and again we loved every moment. The tranquility and beauty are unsurpassed and it gives us a chance to reconnect as a family doing the "simple things" like climbing on rocks, fishing off the dock, taking walks etc. We have a place to come back to hopefully for many more years to come!” Beth, Rutherford, NH - Summer 2010
“Exceptional experience. The entire staff was friendly and made the visit most pleasing. Your breakfast buffet was very good with more than enough food for the undecided. Talked with Michelle after hours and as a member of your staff she had only positive remarks for the Inn. We will be back for sure. - John, East Winthrop, ME - Summer 2010
“Our stay at OPI was wonderful and so relaxing! The staff was well trained and very friendly. The food was excellent! And best of all the views are amazing! We're already talking about our next trip to OPI and we've only been gone one day! Thank you to everyone at OPI for making our stay so wonderful! You really helped make our 14th Wedding Anniversary so very special!” - Nancy, Center Conway, NH - Summer 2010
“We have come back 10 years in a row, so we obviously love our stay. It's so great to come and do nothing! We always hate to leave.” - Ginger, North Hampton, NH - Summer 2010
“Our stay was wonderful. Your location is perfect, scenic, tranquil and relaxing while still being close to amenities in Boothbay Harbor and Wiscasset. The staff and lodge were great!” - Michael, Thornton, CO - Summer 2010
“Our stay was truly fantastic. You have a gorgeous location and our room was just beautiful. Your staff was very, very friendly and helpful. My wife and I couldn't have been more pleased.” - John, Lake Toxaway, NC - Summer 2010
“We love it there and all of you are great!! This was a short stay for us, a spur of the moment getaway, we will be back for 10 days in September and we can't wait!

"This place is peace on earth."
"Our first visit and what a wonderful find! We especially enjoyed the Adirondacks and the flowers. Already planning our next visit."
"The food and the view are to die for."
"Have been coming here for 14 years. I would never pick another hotel."
"First time for dinner -- absolutely delicious! The sunset was incredible and the atmosphere was gorgeous."
"Our 12th year and as wonderful as ever. We travel a bit, but this remains our favorite vacation spot. The genuine warmth and hospitality, luscious walks by the sea, and fine food beckon to us every August."
Our family had an opportunity to stay at your inn on July 11. I wanted to say thanks for a great stay and wonderful accommodations. We arrived in East Boothbay a couple of hours early and your staff was incredibly accommodating and even managed to get our room cleaned early and get us checked in earlier than we expected. Our boys had never seen the ocean and they were very excited to have an opportunity to jump off the pier and swim in the salt water. They didn’t stay in long though, as it was very cold and they were happy to warm up in the heated pool. We also enjoyed a hike along the rocks in Grimes Cove. The scenery and ocean sounds were breathtaking and it was very interesting to watch the lobstermen pull in their lobster traps in the morning. We had a wonderful vacation in Maine and thanks again for the great location to share the ocean with my family. Sarnia, Ontario
In the 1940s and 1950s my parents took my sister and me to Linekin Bay Camp on Wall Point. We used the Linekin and Linekin II to get into Boothbay Harbor. On the way, the ferry always gave us a great trip around the Bay, stopping often at Ocean Point when your spinnaker had been hoisted. I often wondered what it would be like to stay out on Ocean Point where all of those happy people would get on the ferry. This year, Dixie and I decided to find out. We loved staying at the Ocean Point Inn. We canceled many of the side trips that we had planned because all of coastal Maine, it seemed, was all there right off our Lodge balcony. The side trips had become unnecessary. We hope that you will be there next summer—just like we left it.
We just returned from our wonderful stay at Ocean Point. The family package was great, although we didn’t have time for the complimentary pizza, (too busy). I must say the breakfast pizza was awesome as well as the frittata we had for breakfast. I had to ask the chef about it. I’m not one for letters but my husband and I had to let you know that your staff is wonderful. We told your husband when we were leaving that for such young people they were really concerned about our stay and genuinely pleasant! Jake was our waiter twice and really deserves a compliment. I know that the packages for next year aren’t available yet, but is it too soon to make reservations for next year and decide on a package when the time comes? We thought we had the best room in the best spot, and the kids had a blast! If it’s not too early to book, I’ll call you by phone. Rowley, MA
P.S. Loved the gift bag! — just when you thought it couldn’t get any better!
My fiancé and I just stayed with you this past month. First off let me say that the experience, as always, was fantastic. We stayed in the Hatchard House overlooking the water, which was just incredible. We took part in your Romance package, and I’m wondering if it would be possible to take part in this package again next month.
"This is a beautiful place in the fog!"
"The view here is both breathtaking and soothing to the soul. The staff has been very friendly and so helpful -- even finding us another room when we just had to stay one more night! We wish we were staying even longer, but we will be back!"
"Our cousin recommended your fine establishment -- and it lived up to all of our expectations and more! Beautiful location, fabulous food, wonderful service, and even some fish from the pier!"
"Our 16th year at Ocean Point! Many things have changed for us since our first stay here, but in our ever-changing and busy lifestyle, Ocean Point is our only constant. We look forward to our stay here more and more every year -- it's therapeutic!"
"I could stay all summer!"
"We have been coming down here from Canada for what seems like forever, and it is truly like a summer home away from home -- the genuine warmth of all the staff, the serenity and beauty of the setting, the sunsets, the walks, the gorgeous drives, the flowers, the smells, the incredible sense of tranquillity and peace. And of course the food -- both the breakfasts and the dinners. No wonder David was given the Innkeeper of the Year Award in Maine!"
"We love our cabin -- it's so quiet! The staff have been friendly and helpful, making everything clean, comfortable, charming, and beautiful."
"It's hard to believe we've been coming here for about 20 years. We consider this a haven where we have a chance to restore energy and perspective."
"We have discovered a hidden jewel -- a truly remarkable place."
"My brother-in-law and sister-in-law found this place back in the mid 1980's. They came back home talking about it so much that we came with them the year after. We all love it and we've been here almost every Memorial Day Weekend since."
"You all, and this gorgeous place, are one in a million. Can't believe the good fortune of finding this slice of heaven. We are truly grateful to have this oasis. Thank you for nurturing a Maine treasure."
"This is our 6th visit to Ocean Point. When we round the corner and take in the welcoming view -- it always feels like I'm home."
"This is our 8th mother/daughter visit to Ocean Point Inn. Have loved every one and we hope to have many more."
"I am not looking forward to the drive back to Manhattan, but I am most grateful I was able to return to one of the simple treasures I have come to love over the years."
"My parents and are staying at Ocean Point Inn for the 22nd time. The instant we walked in the door we were greeted warmly and taken care of like royalty. In the far future you can count on my business with my future wife and family and in the near future you can count on seeing my parents and me. In fact we are now planning next year's trip and deciding how early we should call to reserve the beautiful room that we stayed in this year."
"My husband Jim and I spent one night here 20 years ago! I never forgot this beautiful, serene, "secret" place. Driving home from leaving our daughter at music camp yesterday, I said to Jim, 'Let's see if that neat inn is still there in Boothbay.' Much to our delight, it is here, and even more delightful than I remember!"
"I'm not a guest -- this is my 22nd year working in this delightful environment. Have taken some breaks to live elsewhere but keep returning to the inn with the finest view, drool-worthy food, and great people who are as family to work with. Thanks for providing such a setting, complete with amazing sunsets as the backdrop when I greet guests at the front door."
