"When you are there you feel like family! Your wish is what they want to make happen. Kevin and Deidre are always trying to make everything better, even though it is always soooo good there and excellently maintained from year to year. Can't wait to go every year-several times!"
~ Carolyn, Auburn, MA

"We've been staying at the Atlantic Oceanfront Motel for a few weeks every summer for quite a few years now, and the best thing that we can say about the experience is: 'It's like going home'. We look forward to, hopefully, many more visits in years to come!!
~ Karen and Ron, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

"How could I refuse after so many wonderful years of vacations with you and your family. Being right on the beach is great, the sound of the waves at night is beautiful The host and hostess , the best, the staff friendly and helpful, and the motel is always clean and attractive. The two of us would never dream of going any other place! It's a little piece of heaven on earth.
Your friend of many years,
~ Ruth, Ira, VT.
