First Day of Spring in Ogunquit, Maine

Spring in Ogunquit is always magical, whether it’s coming on the heels of a heavy-duty winter or—like this year—a mild one.

The coast of Southern Maine is beautiful year-round, but the vernal awakening—which “officially” gets underway on the March 20 equinox—certainly paints a pretty picture: all the bursting buds and blossoms and the trilling songbirds, set against the crashing Atlantic surf.

It’s a wonderful time of year to come stay with us here at the Admiral’s Inn, which nestles you right in the heart of Ogunquit’s springtime splendor. A guestroom or suite at the Terraces, the White Rose, the Carriage House, the Penthouse, or the Cottage provides a blissful retreat—just the getaway you’ve earned this winter (however it’s been on your end)!

Our Sister Property: The Colonial Inn

Besides our varied accommodations, you’ve got another fantastic option for your Ogunquit escape: our sister property, the Colonial Inn. This spectacularly restored historic hotel, which has been a landmark of town since 1890, opens its doors for the season beginning on April 15: just in time for spring. The Colonial Inn has been conducting some exciting renovations in its Guest House over the winter. And mark your calendar for the hotel’s annual Summer Kickoff Party on June 7: always a heck of a soiree!

Spring Fun in Ogunquit

Whether you stay with us or over at the Colonial Inn—and we’d like to suggest doing both, given each hotel offers its own delights—you’ll have no end of things to do in town. Besides all the shopping, dining, and gallery-hopping, you’ve got springtime events such as the 27th annual Patriot’s Day celebration (April 21 through 23) and the 85th anniversary season of the legendary Ogunquit Playhouse, which launches its first show of the year, Mamma Mia!, on May 17. (Also on tap at the Playhouse this season: Bullets Over BroadwayRagtimeHeartbreak Hotel, and From Here to Eternity.)

On May 1, meanwhile, another of our village’s standout institutions, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art, opens back up.

And then there’s the joy of taking a flowery amble along the Marginal Way, Ogunquit’s iconic seashore path within shouting distance of us here at the Admiral’s Inn.

Celebrate the Start of Spring at the Admiral’s Inn!

The transformation of the seasons makes the perfect excuse to come visit us in Ogunquit! Schedule your Admiral’s Inn stay today—and don’t forget the Colonial Inn’s opening date of April 15!
