MEADOWMERE RESORT, OGUNQUIT, MAINE.
gunquit means "Beautiful Place by the Sea" in the language of the Abenaki tribe.
It's also a beautiful place for groups to stop-or spend the night-when traveling
between Boston and Portland or Bar Harbor on Route 1 just off I-95. What's here?
The town is situated on a peninsula lush with natural dunes. Your group can walk the
cliffs, spy a lighthouse, or explore the local Museum of American Art.
Best of all, you'll find four ABA members here. The newest is the family-owned
Meadowmere Resort. Winner of the state's EcoMaine award for its environmental efforts,
it has also won TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence three years in a row. For group
booking, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (800) 633-8718, ext. 657.
Other nearby properties are The Admiral's Inn and The Colonial Inn, both owned by
the same company. In colonial days, Admiral's Inn was a stagecoach stop on the main
highway. It has two heated pools, a poolside bar, and fire pit, all cozily tucked in three
acres of landscaped grounds. Built in 1886, the Colonial Inn sports contemporary rooms
and offers gardens, shuffleboard, a heated pool, and a hosted wine hour. To book at either
property, contact sales director Tanya MacLean at email@example.com.
No stay in Ogunquit would be complete without attending a performance at ABA member Ogunquit Playhouse. Since 1933, show biz legends including Ethel Barrymore and
Bette Davis have trod its boards in Broadway-quality productions. The season runs from
mid-May to late October. For a complete list of this year's musicals, visit www.ogunquit
Groups of 20 or more can book a private event tent, and further discounts are available
