The Inn at Ocean’s Edge sits, as the name suggests, beside an inlet of the North Atlantic, offering incredible views of peaceful Penobscot Bay. You won’t just be looking at the waters either, with a seasonal freshwater infinity pool on the property and nearby Lincolnville Beach just a short drive away. Offering you lots of different options for enjoying yourself is a specialty of this boutique base; you can also choose whether to sip complimentary tea or local Carrabassett coffee, for instance, or whether to tend to health and wellness needs at the fully equipped fitness room or in the peaceful massage treatment rooms.?
The Migis Hotel Group property prides itself of making it as easy as possible to tailor your vacation to your tastes, and its location is no exception. After washing down a buffet breakfast of cheeses, pastries and perhaps pancakes or pesto eggs Benedict – and before returning home for a nightcap at the Main Inn pub – choose between hiking or biking, visiting museums or historic sites and riding on a windjammer or the ferry that stops at the inn. Or, choose between nautical Camden Village and artsy Belfast: Both are just minutes away.
The inn’s 32 newly renovated rooms are split between three buildings: the Main Inn, the Poolhouse and the Hilltop. All hold a king bed and feature spa amenities, Boca terry bathrobes and a gas fireplace.
Amenities- Complimentary Wi-Fi?- Individual climate control- Fluffy towels- Mini-fridge- Flat-screen TV- Private bath
The Inn at Ocean’s Edge features a limited-service day spa, housing two massage rooms, a shower, a hot tub and a cedar sauna. Deep-tissue, Shiatsu, Swedish and Thai yoga massages are all on the menu, and the 65-ft. freshwater pool is right outside, for a post-therapy dip. You can also follow your treatment with a session in the fitness room, containing cardio machines and yoga mats.
Lincolnville is a beachy Pine Tree State retreat, along Penobscot Bay, an inlet of the North Atlantic. You’ll be able to swim at nearby Lincolnville Beach when the weather’s nice, as well as to hop on a ferry to Islesboro from the inn. Also nearby are the artists colony at Belfast and the bustling harbor at Camden Village, while additional boating, hiking, biking, golfing and even lobstering are offered in the greater Mid-Coast region.
How to Get There
Hotel was nestled between the town of Camden and the Lincolnville beach area, but we barely left the hotel. The infinity pool and hot tub were awesome and their breakfast (included) was EXCELLENT. Very friendly staff and great views. Would definitely recommend.
It is difficult to find a hotel on the Maine seacoast that has both a peaceful setting and modern amenities. This hotel wins on both counts. We spent six very pleasant days here and highly recommend it.
As many have noted, the setting is spectacular, the breakfasts are excellent and the staff is helpful without being intrusive. Beds are comfortable (though a bit high off the ground) and the room air-conditioning is most welcome.
But we have stayed in many hotels over the years and appreciated how the Inn thought of some little things that so many hotels overlook. Like placing comfortable, padded lounge chairs on the lawn that can be moved into the shade, for those who want a quieter alternative to the pool. Large, functional rooms with plenty of surface space and minimal clutter, with easy chairs that are actually comfortable to sit in. Coffee available downstairs from 7:00 on, instead of clumsy coffee makers in the room. Real newspapers to read with breakfast. An honor bar for drinks by the pool.
Travelers should be aware that while the setting and ambiance is peaceful overall, it is not an adults-only hotel. The lovely pool is an attraction for families, and children may dominate the scene there sometimes. This isn’t a criticism of the hotel - just a heads-up for adult couples.
The hotel is just the right size - small enough to feel intimate while large enough to support a professional staff. Management here knows what it’s doing. We hope to return someday.
The Inn is lovely. Spectacular view, well landscaped, extremely clean, delicious breakfast and friendly staff.
My only negative would be the fact that we booked for two nights and had to move down the hall for our second night. The move was easy, but I found it quite disappointing, as I didn’t feel settled my second night. This should not be something that guests should incure. In addition, the air conditioner was older in the second room (Hilltop 12), and was extremely noisy!
