Ogunquit has two family-run accommodations that are both certified Maine Green Lodgings, meeting the stringent requirements of conservation-minded Mainers. The Beachmere Inn is a harmonious family resort on Marginal Way, with views that will awe even jaded tweens. There is a gym in the basement with a wide variety of toys, so the kids can play while you exercise. The Meadowmere Resort enjoys a Main Street location and a giant indoor pool, in case your Maine summer weather feels more like New York City in March. You can take the trolley to both properties.
