What was once a simple turn-of-the-century farmhouse began its life as a bed and breakfast in the mid-thirties when Ethel Goode Franklin, a dynamic African-American woman and celebrated actress, became the first woman to own property in the town of Ogunquit.
Mrs. Goode ran her home as a very casual and affordable bed and breakfast, wanting to create a warm and inviting place that African Americans could feel comfortable coming to in Maine during a time of racial divide and segregation. Subsequent generations were not subjected to the harsh circumstances of segregation and her home became an oasis for all who were willing to enjoy her hospitality.
Today, The Hideaway maintains the same philosophy of providing a warm and inviting respite for travelers to relax while exploring the wonders of the southern Maine coast and take pleasure in all that Ogunquit has to offer.
We are certain that your visit with us will be truly memorable and hope that you will continue to choose us as your home away from home when visiting our historic and beautiful Ogunquit.
