Vacations are designed to provide the working class with a means by which to relax and unwind from the stress of a full-time job. Working can be draining and sometimes you just need to find a place to get away too. A place where you don’t have to worry about anything other than deciding whether to spend the day lounging by the pool or hanging out on the beach. This reporter recently visited Ogunquit, Maine and spent four days at the Anchorage By The Sea resort hotel and as someone who has stayed in many hotels and resorts this one is absolutely one of the best.
The resort consists of the waterfront rooms, which sit alongside the lobby area and the pool area all surrounded by the beautiful ocean view spanning as far as the eye can see. Ocean view or not the rooms all offer customers impeccable accommodations with comfortable beds and pillows that feel like you’re sleeping on air. No expense has been spared at this beautiful resort to ensure customer satisfaction.
The resort has a lot to offer its patrons including two hot tubs, an outdoor pool with attached Jacuzzi and for those colder days, an indoor pool and attached Jacuzzi. In the pool area there is also a cabana and full-restaurant, called Surf Point Grill, for those who need something to eat after or during a long day of relaxation. The restaurant offers full bar for the nighttime adventurers or smaller dishes for the mid-afternoon snack such as grilled cheese, hot dogs and this writer’s personal favorite the buffalo chicken wrap.
Of course, the accommodations, food options and pool area aren’t what truly draw people to the Anchorage By The Sea, no what truly draws people are the killer views. Sit on any one of the lounge chairs in the law area just outside the pool area and you can almost feel the mist from the Atlantic Ocean painting your face. The resort is so close to the beach you can hear all the sounds of the ocean waves crashing on the rocks and the cries of seagulls looking for food. There is truly nothing like it in the world.
Sure, there are plenty of resorts and hotels to stay at in Ogunquit, Maine but for a truly breathtaking experience there is no better place than the Anchorage By The Sea.
