My fiancé and I just returned from another great trip to Maine, and Gazebo Inn Ogunquit was central to our plans. After lodging at this inn during trips past (and other properties owned by Bruce & Scott) we now plan our trips to New England around stays at Gazebo!
Both of us have traveled extensively for work, and this property offers the best accommodations we have encountered worldwide. The experience at Gazebo combines the amenities of a 5-star hotel, the hospitality of a bed and breakfast, and the relaxed atmosphere of home (or what we would like our home to feel like)! A good illustration of the quality of service offered is the check-in process – upon arriving at Gazebo we have always been greeted by Peter or Scott in the driveway, welcoming us and offering to help with luggage.
Quality continues from the service at check-in all the way through the property and the stay. It is obvious that no expense has been spared in the renovation of the property, the furnishings, or the bedding. I was glad to find out while talking to other guests at breakfast that were not the only people trying to get in as many steam showers (with 4 body jets and a rain shower head), hot tub soaks, or in-room Jacuzzi baths during our stay as possible. With all of this luxury we didn’t have enough time to get a massage in the Gazebo’s own massage room!
Breakfast is phenomenal, and stays exciting throughout the visit with small variations in the menu. Some favorites from this trip: Maine blueberry pancakes, spinach with feta cheese, perfectly cooked bacon, eggs, bacon, scrambled eggs with fontina cheese, and bacon. Luckily the choice of blueberry or cranberry/white chocolate scones was available every day! 6 different coffee choices, 3 juices, and a full range of teas are at the ready to enjoy with your meal.
The common space has a self-service bar with bottles of red/white/sparking wine, and champagne (all available chilled). This honor system supply is convenient when you decide to have a glass of wine late at night or just feel like going out. During this trip we opened a special bottle of champagne only to find out the cork went bad during storage, but our night wasn’t ruined – I only had to walk down to the wine fridge and get a new bottle!
Of special note on this trip, I made an error during trip planning and booked our stay a night short. It was only through conversation with Scott and Peter at breakfast that I realized this, and they were so accommodating and helpful even though it was my mistake.
It is obvious that everyone at Gazebo Inn loves what they do and possess a very special knack for hospitality. I can’t imagine anyone not enjoying this piece of heaven!
