“Another great beach for surfing—Waves at Gooch’s come in fast and break steep; It’s a popular swimming beach, so you won’t be alone in the summertime, but Gooch’s is also big with surfers in the winter. A permit to park at the beach is required June 15 to September 15. Day, weekly and seasonal passes are available at electronic kiosks at the beach.”

“Geoff and I like to go to the lounge area down by the pool, not necessarily for the food, but more for the ambiance. It is a quintesential Maine resort that takes you back in time...not too many of these left on the Maine coast....(think Stephen King redrum, redrum)...”
