Here at the Admiral’s Inn, we absolutely adore the large and loyal contingent of Canadian guests who come down from the Great White North to stay with us here in Ogunquit, smack dab on the swoony seacoast of Southern Maine.
And to all of our beloved Canadian friends, we’ve got some good news: We’ve still got availability for the upcoming holiday weekend of Victoria Day!
The Queen’s B-Day
Victoria Day, as our neighbors to the north well know but many statesiders may not, honors the birthday of Queen Victoria, that long-lived monarch of the British Empire whose reign—from 1837 to 1901—defined an entire era of civilization.
Canada celebrates this holiday the Monday before May 25 (Queen Victoria’s actual birthday was May 24, 1819), which this year falls on May 22.
Victoria Day in Ogunquit: Perfect Timing
The Admiral’s Inn makes a mighty choice spot to celebrate the Victoria’s Day weekend. For one thing, late May is a precious time to be in Ogunquit, with lovely spring weather well underway and the crowds of summer still a ways off.
At the same time, many of the town’s standout seasonal attractions are in full swing. The Ogunquit Playhouse, for instance, will have just launched its 85th anniversary season—the musical Mamma Mia! begins on May 17—while the Ogunquit Museum of American Art opened its doors at the start of this month.
From the exhibits of the Ogunquit Heritage Museum to the art galleries of Perkins Cove, from the white sands of Ogunquit Beach to the bloom-scented forests of Mount Agamenticus, this is a marvelous time to soak up the charms of our classic New England seaside village. What better way to celebrate the holiday weekend of Victoria’s Day than with an escape down south to Ogunquit—with the Admiral’s Inn your attentive and devoted host? Whether you’re a first-timer to the Admiral’s and Ogunquit, or you’re one of our many regular returning guests, we’d love to show you a blissful May idyll.
