Ride in Style: NYC to Ogunquit, Maine

For some of our guests who live in NYC getting to Ogunquit, Maine can mean using a variety of transportation methods if one doesn’t have their own car.  Coming this May, C&J Bus service will offer a new schedule connecting downtown NYC (Port Authority Station) to downtown Ogunquit, Maine on a daily basis using an executive class bus.  Enjoy larger seating room, free WiFi and power ports, movies, snacks and above all, your own driver.  I’ve personally used this service three times for trips to NYC and back from Portsmouth NH, but can’t wait to be able to catch this ride from almost our front door.  If you’ve never been to Ogunquit, you’ll find an easily walkable town, where most guests who stay at The Beachmere Inn, park their car and
walk to everything our little village has to offer.


We’ll be offering to pick up or arrange pick up services for our guests once you arrive in Ogunquit and for the day of your departure.

This recent article from Off Metro is a good quick read for more details.

Only in Ogunquit, Maine can you snow shoe along the ocean!

blogOne of the most unspoiled activities to enjoy in Ogunquit is a snow shoe along the Marginal Way footpath.  As the town does not plow it, it becomes a haven for those outdoor enthusiasts looking for the beauty of the seaside enjoyed in the serenity of the quiet winter season. With the snow we have received during the 2015 winter, the path is covered and deep, making snow shoes mandatory to walk the path.  Sit on a bench along the way and take in the magnificent ocean views while after you come back to the Inn for a hot drink or lunch before you soak in the hot  tub.  

If you’re staying in town while it snows, another fun activity you can tell you friends about is snow shoeing the beach.  Enjoy fresh snow and a beach day all at the same time.  Walk the deeper snow along the fence line of the dunes, or ditch the snow shoes during your walk to find sand dollars on the beach during low tide.  You’ll be all by yourself on Maine’s prettiest beach.
