Bottom line question: I am wondering if anyone might have suggestions of where we might want to stay near Ogunquit that would not be "competing" with people who want a beach vacation.
We are thinking of heading to Ogunquit for a couple days around the start of our vacation, as we are changing our vacation plans last minute. I had everything solidified for the trip we were going to take, but now that we are changing direction at the last minute, I need some help.
We are not interested in spending days at the beach on this trip. (We are fortunate to get to do that pretty regularly.) We do plan to take in the water views, however--something we love--and would be fine with taking a walk on a beach or a dip in the water, but given hotel prices and popularity, we do not plan/need to stay near the water.
It's a popular (pricey) time of year to look for a hotel last minute, and so much seems beach-oriented when I look. Additionally, many hotels are sold out for our dates. So...HELP, please, with places outside of the beach areas, that ay be available (and more reasonable)!
(We were using points at a Marriot on our already-planned vacation but realize we may not be able to do so last minute this way. Again, many are sold out when I do searches.)
(If, in addition, someone has a specific hotel recommendation in a neighborhood/area we have not thought about, we are all ears. We like to stay in Marriott=branded hotels because of points, but we are open to other suggestions.)
(Please note I will be posting similarly on an Portland page. Our prospective new itinerary, if we are able to find what we want hotel-wise, is to start in Portland, then go to Ogunquit, then head to Portmouth/Salem/Gloucester/Rockport. Mentioning this just in case someone has a lightbulb idea of note!)
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP! Sorry for the long post, but thought giving more info might be helpful for those responding! :)
