Abalonia Inn - Ogunquit Gay Bed & Breakfast

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

Located in the heart of Ogunquit, Maine, the Abalonia Inn is a completely renovated 1840 Ogunquit farmhouse converted to a 17 room inn.

The rooms have great period detail with exposed post and beams, wide pine floors, and period detailed furniture.

Our location in Ogunquit is ideal. We are a short walk to the beach, clubs, and entertainment that only Ogunquit has to offer.

Enjoy a walk on Marginal Way, a cliff walk that goes from the center of the village to beautiful Perkins Cove, a working fishing village. You can also enjoy 3 miles of pristine beach, which Yankee Magazine just named the best in New England.

At night, you can go enjoy one of the many restaurants, or have a cocktail at the Front Porch or Maine Street dance clubs. For those of you who love the arts, visit one of Ogunquit’s many Museums, the fabulous shows at the Ogunquit Playhouse, or entertainment at both Maine Street and Admiral’s Inn lounge.

The Abalonia is rich in history beginning with its first owners, Barak Maxwell, the richest and most influential shipbuilder in Ogunquit. In 1940 it was converted to an inn.

It eventually fell in disrepair, and was brought back to life with its current owners in 2012.

Every room at the Abalonia Inn was completely gutted, taking particular care to preserve the historic nature of the inn.

Amenities include a beautiful new saline pool, firepit, wireless internet, and great common areas. Each room has a refrigerator, either a king or queen sized bed, and a large 32″ LCD/LED television. But by far, our biggest amenity is our in-town location.

If you’re looking for an historic inn with a modern flair, come stay with us at the Abalonia Inn in Ogunquit, Maine!

We knew our business would also be our home, so we needed to find a place that we’d want to live and work in, which would also appeal to the kind of travelers we wanted to host.

Maine’s natural beauty and friendly people attracted us to the area, and we were very excited as we planned to share that beauty and friendliness with others.

So now we live in beautiful, rural Bucksport – the perfect place for convenient day-tripping – on a lovely pond with great hiking, canoeing and kayaking all around us. We’ve developed Williams Pond Lodge into a great place for you, our friends – old and new – to share with us on your next visit to Maine!

Leave the pavement and follow our woods road for a little over a half-mile as it winds through the forest, along the pond shore, then ends in our front yard. We’re just a half hour from Bangor and Bangor International Airport.

Bucksport sits on the beautiful Penobscot River, close to historic Fort Knox and the spectacular new Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory. Penobscot Bay stretches out in front of Bucksport, wich sits on the top of the Blue Hill Peninsula – we’re also an easy drive to Acadia National Park, Bar Harbor, Castine, Stonington, Searsport, Belfast and Camden.

Come stay in our home and experience the peaceful relaxation of living in the woods, on the pond and off the grid. This is comfortable wilderness in Downeast Maine… create new vacation memories which will bring you back again and again to visit your friends at Williams Pond Lodge!
