New England Boutique Resort Gets a Luxury Event Space Upgrade

Matt Wagner Commercial Projects

Ogunquit, ME — Two hours outside of Boston, Massachusetts, lives a beautiful boutique hotel in Ogunquit, Maine called Anchorage by the Sea. The four-star resort is a premier destination for weddings, events, vacationing and provides guests with a luxury waterfront Maine experience. The family-run organization first opened its doors in 1978 and aims to give patrons an unforgettable stay.

Michael Ramsey, owner of Anchorage by the Sea, has been working diligently to upgrade and maintain the boutique resort so that it continues to be the best venue in Maine for visitors. During recent renovations includes expanding and upgrading the wedding and event space, complete with durable artificial turf.

Installing Durable Turf for a Northeastern Climate with SYNLawn

Mr. Ramsey reached out to SYNLawn New England, also known as New England Turf Store, to bring the indoor/outdoor space to life. The 8,000 square foot space needed to withstand high foot traffic and survive the windy and cold Northeastern climate.

The wedding and event space was designed to withstand hundreds of chairs and heavy foot traffic, which is only part of the story. Additions like a dance floor and tents are often needed for weddings and other social gatherings, so these highly attended events require sturdy surfacing.

Ultimately, John Kearney and Scott Koesterich of New England Turf Store were selected to complete the project due to their professionalism and durability of SYNLawn artificial grass products. SYNTipede 343 was selected for this boutique hotel’s wedding and event space because it is strong, is ADA compliant, has antimicrobial properties, and has a lifetime warranty.

Standing Out in the Competitive Hospitality Segment

The hospitality segment has seen a resurgence of privately owned properties with local flair invigorate the market. Unlike nationally branded hospitality properties, family-owned boutique properties, such as Anchorage by the Sea, look to stand out with materials and amenities to draw guests and provide one-of-a-kind experiences. Adding artificial turf to the Anchorage by the Sea hotel weddings and event space further elevates the beautiful seaside property.

The boutique hotel has been a local destination for 43 years and counting. The property is dedicated to a premium, clean, and breathtaking experience and continues to innovate and excel in the hospitality business. Anchorage by the Sea’s improved event space will host bridal parties, corporate events, and local gatherings for years to come.
