How to Plan a Family Reunion in Maine: Start with the Venue

While everyone loves attending a family reunion, few people enjoy planning a family reunion. If you are the lucky member of your family given that big responsibility, it’s hard to know where to start. The right venue for your Maine family reunion needs to be able to accommodate all your guests and appeal to a wide range of ages and interests. It needs to be affordable, accessible.

1. Start with a destination everyone already wants to visit.
Boothbay Harbor, Maine has been one of the most popular Maine vacation destinations for hundreds of years, and is an ideal location for family reunions. At the historic Newagen Seaside Inn, you’ll see why—because you’ll see the breathtaking Maine coast from almost every guest room, suite and seaside cottage. In the traditional Maine coast hotel style, the Inn’s rambling embrace of the ocean makes the most of its panoramic ocean views of Southport Island. And with traditional Maine coast hotel hospitality, our family helps your family make the most of your Maine family reunion.

2. Make sure your Maine family reunion venue offers family-friendly activities and events.
Your Maine family reunion should be filled with all your favorite things to do in Maine. The signature events of a stay at our historic oceanfront inn are rooted in who we are, where we live and what we enjoy. They are authentic, timeless celebrations of life on the Maine coast and make wonderful, intergenerational family reunion activities. A Maine lobster bake, a Polar Dip or Fireside Tales are some of our favorite traditions, and we can’t wait to share them with you.

Your family will also enjoy rowing and sailing along the Maine coast, cycling and hiking our beautiful nature trails, candlepin bowling, table tennis and billiards in our rustic, wood-paneled Game Room. Our heated saltwater pool and two hardcourt tennis courts overlook the ocean, and signature white Adirondack chairs are scattered across our expansive lawns and gardens to remind you to take time to appreciate the panoramic ocean views. Minutes away in Boothbay Harbor, family members can play golf at the Boothbay Country Club, go whale watching in Maine, tour lighthouses and islands, fish, kayak, visit world-class museums and restaurants, enjoy concerts overlooking the ocean and much, much more.
