BOOTHBAY HARBOR, ME – Lark Hotels announced the opening of Bluebird Ocean Point Inn, the eighth hotel to join the growing portfolio of Bluebird by Lark properties, a collection of redesigned hotels, motels and ski lodges for contemporary travelers. The opening of Bluebird Ocean Point Inn marks the first Bluebird by Lark in Maine, a destination that has been pivotal to the Lark Hotels’ brand with iconic properties including Blind Tiger, Whitehall and Kennebunkport Captains Collection. The newly renovated Bluebird Ocean Point Inn is slated to open to the public June 2023.
Located in Boothbay Harbor’s Ocean Point community overlooking Card Cove, Bluebird Ocean Point Inn pays homage to Maine’s close-knit cottage culture. The Boothbay region, known as New England’s boating capital, is the perfect homebase to experience the natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and nearby islands of Maine’s coast. With a rich maritime heritage in boatbuilding, Boothbay Harbor has historically been a gathering place for sailors, fishermen, and explorers, infusing the town with an inviting spirit and independent charm.
“The Lark Hotels brand was established with our very first property in Kennebunkport, Maine, so we couldn’t be more excited to expand on Bluebird’s footprint and introduce Bluebird Ocean Point Inn to our portfolio, alongside our four Lark properties in Maine,” said Rob Blood, Founder of Lark Hotels. “Boothbay Harbor is an iconic destination where travelers have enjoyed the very best of Maine summers for decades. It’s the kind of place where the screen door in the kitchen is left unlocked and neighbors stop by for a cup of coffee or a sundowner cocktail.”
Followed by the successful debut of Bluebird Lake Placid in February 2023, Bluebird Ocean Point Inn will be the second Bluebird by Lark property to open in 2023. The growing portfolio will also welcome Bluebird Cady Hill in Stowe, Vermont this summer, with additional properties in the pipeline. Since launching in 2021, Bluebird by Lark Hotels have opened across New York (Bluebird Lake Placid, Bluebird Hunter Lodge and Bluebird Spa City Lodge), Massachusetts (Bluebird Dennisport, Bluebird Parker Beach Lodge), New Hampshire (Bluebird Sunapee) and Vermont (Talta Lodge Bluebird).
