Gay Friendly Ogunquit Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, and Vacation Rentals

Rockmere Lodge - Ogunquit, MaineA turn of the nineteenth century shingle style cottage built in 1899 by the Stearns family of Cincinnati, this Ogunquit ME Bed & Breakfast sits on a slight knoll with commanding views of the Atlantic, midway along the Marginal Way, a mile-long beautiful ocean-side footpath from Ogunquit Village to Perkins Cove, but in a quiet highly residential area. You can hear the surf crashing against the rocks from almost every room in Rockmere Lodge.

The spacious grounds around this Ogunquit Bed & Breakfast Inn boast extensive flower gardens with fountains, a goldfish pond and statuary that reflect the way your hosts imagine Rockmere Lodge, an Ogunquit ME B&B, would have looked at the turn of the nineteenth century. You are invited to stroll the grounds, bask in the sun, enjoy the cool sea breeze in our screen enclosed Gazebo overlooking the water or just sit in the shade on an Adirondack chair or relax on our Pagoda swing.

The sweeping veranda that wraps around the entire front of the house is graciously appointed with comfortable wicker furniture, making it an inviting place to sit and enjoy the ocean view, nap, read or meet new friends.

Featured Property: Galen C. Moses House – Bath, Maine

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

Gay Friendly Midcoast Maine Bed and Breakfasts, Hotels, and Vacation Rentals

Galen C. Moses House - Bath, MaineBuilt in 1874 for Galen Clapp Moses, the house became an instant celebrity in Bath when Jim and Larry purchased it in 1994 to create a bed & breakfast. Departing from traditional local house colors, this Italianate structure was draped in the most vivid colors of plum, pink and teal, thus its nickname, “The Pink House”.

There are surprises throughout the house, from the elegant gardens and rooms filled with tasteful antiques to the full theatre located on the third floor and once used to entertain officers from the nearby Naval Air Station during World War II. The house contains a number of spirits, other than the sherry served at 5:00pm. Our ghosts, assuredly friendly, are likely to make their presence felt on a frequent basis. Early evening finds guests relaxing on the porches which surround the house or taking a leisurely stroll along the waterfront.

A full breakfast is served each morning and varies according to the cook’s mood. While juices, coffee and muffins are available for early risers and late sleepers, the full breakfast between 8:00am and 9:00am adds fresh fruit and such things as blueberry pancakes, mushroom quiche or sour cream and chive omelets.
