John, Jo-Ann, and Michael Lapointe are proud to Welcome you to our 33rd Anniversary
in business since May 1983 here at the Beau Rivage (french-meaning ‘beautiful seashore’).

Since 1983, "The Beau" has been a family favorite  vacation destination with both Canadian and American Tourists who visit us here in Old Orchard Beach !

The advent of the automobile changed long-distance travel and gave birth to ‘Motels’ and by the 60’s, owner-operated motels became the ‘wave of the future’.  John’s parents, Armand and Lena, moved to Old Orchard Beach from Lewiston, Maine, purchased and tore down old buildings, then built and operated the Beau Rivage from 1966 to 1983, alongside raising a family while working hands-on in every aspect of their business:  they were a part of that wave!

Since 1983, we have grown from 45 to 65 units (which inludes Beau Soleil on Milliken St.). After 33+ years in business, our goal remains the same:  to offer guests clean and comfortable lodging, keep prices reasonable, to have a friendly staff that treat our guests as ‘family’, and we strive to make your vacation a memorable one at the Beau Rivage!

We thank you for your interest in our family history and for your continued patronage.
