Maine's The Colonial Inn begins Archetype Architects-led renovation

The Colonial Inn of Ogunquit, Maine began a $4-million historical renovation. Now under new ownership and management, this property will reopen in May 2013 with completely upgraded facilities and a contemporary guest experience.

Maine resident Joe Delois, who acquired the property, chose David Lloyd of the Portland firm Archetype Architects to oversee the transformation. The company is working with the National Park Service to ensure that the new interior and exterior fixtures and finishes are true to the style of the original building.

While lodgings at The Colonial Inn will be comprised of 62 rooms spread throughout four different buildings, the hotel’s main inn will be reconfigured and enhanced by taking its previous count of 44 rooms down to 28. The end result will be bigger guestrooms said to offer more of the comforts of home. Most rooms in the hotel, some with water views – and every room in the Main Inn itself – will boast a king bed, a refrigerator, coffee makers and new furnishings.

Guest amenities at The Colonial Inn will include free parking, a recreation room and entertainment for families, complimentary property-wide Wi-Fi, complimentary continental breakfast, a heated outdoor pool with patio and hot tub, a lobby, living room and a newly expanded wraparound porch and landscaped exteriors with green spaces.

The Colonial Inn is managed by Migis Hotel Group, a Maine-based hotel management company overseeing a collection of hotels and resorts. It is located at 145 Shore Road, Ogunquit, ME.
