This trip was a surprise vacation for my boyfriend's 40th birthday. I have always wanted to go to Maine, and he had wanted to go back after visiting when he was a kid. I didn't know what part of Maine to go to, but after some research on-line, I found that Ogunquit Beach was one of the best beaches. SO---I went to the town website and found the Gazebo Inn. I know what you're thinking, here's another internet review from a happy customer. BUT SERIOUSLY.....this was one of the best places I have ever stayed. I have been to every major hotel chain around the world, and they cannot compare to my experience at the Gazebo Inn. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was welcoming and truly concerned about us, how our day went, and if we needed any guidance on local restaurants, etc.
As for the breakfast, I don't think I could have cooked a better one myself! Everything was made fresh that morning. There were fabulous scones and The blueberry pancakes were to die for! The best part was they switched up the menu daily, so if you were staying for a long weekend, you didn't end up eating pancakes every day.
The Inn is located a little north of the main drag of town, which was great for us as it cut down on noise from the local restaurants and was very quiet and peaceful. However, we were close enough to walk into town for shopping and entertainment.
There really isn't enough space to mention how accommodating and helpful the staff is or how wonderful our stay was. They have a sign above their office that states “Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends” it is a perfect statement to describe our stay. We will be going back every year!
