Steal of an oceanfront lodging deal in East Boothbay


If you’re seeking a quick escape and don’t want to spurge, TravelZoo has an incredible deal at the Ocean Point Inn, a lovely, old-timey classic on the East Boothbay peninsula. It comprises a main inn, motel-style buldings, and cottages—most with amazing sunset views over the bay and out to the open ocean—set amidst landscaped lawns. A dock extends over the rocky shorefront into the ocean waters. Package rates are $99-149  through Sept. 5, then  $79-119 through Oct. 7 (with a bit of a bump for the holiday weekend). That includes continental breakfast (full available for an additional $6 pp), $25 toward dinner, and discounts on local boat cruises and attractions. But don’t expect to want to leave once here. Those Adirondack-style chairs perched on the ocean’s edge are quite magnetic.
