For Maine families as well as vacationers, a visit to the seaside community of Ogunquit has been a summer ritual for generations. Top-notch restaurants, picturesque stretches of sandy coastline, and one seriously Instagram-friendly oceanside stroll have made it not just a popular beach town, but also, we would argue, New England’s best.
Even better, Ogunquit has plenty of great overnights for newcomers to choose from. Read on for our roundup of favorite Ogunquit hotels and inns.
At this family-owned hotel, amenities include multiple pools and Jacuzzis (yes, multiple), a health club and spa, an arcade, and — when you’re ready to take a break from all that relaxing — an on-site pub.
Can’t decide among a Victorian inn, a cottage, and contemporary motel? The Beachmere has them all – and in a primo oceanside location on the Marginal Way and within steps of restaurants and shops. Named a 2013 Yankee Editors’ Pick for “Best Something for Everyone.”
The aptly named Dunes, a collection of housekeeping cottages and guest rooms, features 12 landscaped acres bordering an Ogunquit tidal estuary. Rowboats waiting at the dock make it a cinch to access the beach, but the Dunes’ heated pool is equally inviting. To this, add a knowledgeable, helpful staff and a location that puts downtown attractions within strolling distance. Named a 2017 Yankee Editors’ Pick for “Best Beach Retreat.”
Enjoy an easy walk to shops, galleries, restaurants, the beach, and the Marginal Way — that is, if you can tear yourself away from this inn’s heated pool, hot tub, and rolling ocean views. Named a 2015 Yankee Editors’ Pick for “Best Walk-to-Everything Location.”
From the 27-room boutique-style White Rose hotel building to the family-friendly Terraces (hot tub! cabana bar!) to the spacious Carriage House, the Admiral’s collection of lodging options makes it a prime landing spot for any vacationer. Be sure to ask about the various restaurant packages.
This four-season resort has been a popular family stay since it opened its doors in 1978. Centrally located, with unrivaled views of the sea, the Anchorage caters to crews of any size with well-appointed rooms, cottages, and condos. Three on-site restaurants means that if you don’t want to leave the water views, you don’t have to.
A mere eight miles from Ogunquit, this favorite spot offers nine luxury suites, a stunning view of Nubble Light, and proximity to Ogunquit’s prized beaches. Traveling with a group? Ask about the Large Family Suite, which has two full baths and sleeps up to eight.
