Travel & Hotel Information

Enjoy magnificent ocean views from your room or private deck in our Victorian Inn, Beachmere South, and Beachmere West buildings at this nonsmoking property (for all rooms and decks). We offer direct access onto the scenic 1 1/4 mile Marginal Way ocean footpath from our lawn. During the summer, sit on our own little sandy/rocky beach as well as our expansive green lawn on which to enjoy outdoor activities or take in the sun & surf. As we are a short 10 to 15-minute walk to Perkins Cove or the center of Ogunquit you can park your car and forget it during your stay with us! 

 

Free High-Speed Wireless Internet is offered at all of our locations. Some rooms offer gas or wood-burning fireplaces.  For those staying longer, you’ll find our kitchenettes in all rooms (small fridge, cooktop, dishware, microwave and sink, toaster, coffee maker, and all cooking implements) will make your stay more enjoyable with in-room dining options. Air conditioning in all rooms as well as daily housekeeping service for all locations (including Hearthstone House). We offer a complimentary continental breakfast served each morning. Cable TV, DVDs & VCRs are in all rooms and a free lending library is available for movies, just ask the front desk.

 

Enjoy the spa level in Beachmere West with a hot tub, sauna, massage rooms, and exercise room! Seasonal, on-site laundry room available in the Victorian Building.  Please note that some of the spa facilities such as the hot tub may or may not be open depending on Covid restrictions at the time of the event.  

The Beachmere has complimentary parking, however, space is limited to 1 vehicle per room.  For those guests that are sharing a room, please plan accordingly.

A light continental breakfast buffet will be served each morning for retreat attendees and staff.  If you prefer a more robust breakfast, the Blue Bistro welcomes in-house guests as well as the public to enjoy delectable offerings and beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, with indoor and outdoor (weather permitting) seating, or order and take back to your room to dine on your deck.  

The Blue Bistro restaurant at the Beachmere Inn is rated at one of the top venues in the Ogunquit/Wells area.  If you are planning on dining at the Inn for dinner, advance reservations are strongly advised (at least a few days prior to the event) and are required for their Friday night Prime Rib dinners.

RATES & ACCOMMODATIONS

$235 per night + $5 daily housekeeping fee + 9% Maine Lodging Tax

Please call the hotel at 1-800-336-3983 to book a room. Please let them know you are attending the SocialBeadia Coastal Maine Bead Retreat as we have a block of rooms reserved and the remaining rooms may show as not available if you attempt to reserve outside the group.  This is a highly desired boutique Inn.  The Inn can only hold the block of rooms until the end of November.  After that, they will be released to the public.  I highly recommend that you reserve the hotel room early for the best room availability, especially if you are planning on sharing a room with a fellow beader and need more than one bed.  Each of the rooms are configured differently and you can view the room interiors and the view on their website www.beachmereinn.com.  The hotel does require a deposit to hold your room, however, will refund the deposit minus the $50 cancellation fee if you cancel within 31 days prior to the event.
