On the recommendation of a friend who has stayed at The Dunes on the Waterfront for many years, we finally booked a cottage for a four night stay. This was our first trip to the area and we had way too many sightseeing objectives planned and wound up spending most of our time away from the cottage. This was a...

We headed up to The Dunes for Doggy Weekend, which was the last weekend in October. The grounds and accommodations are quiet and beautiful, and you can't beat the sunrise over the ocean. This was a wonderful weekend for bringing dogs to the beach (not typically allowed during high season), so we had a fine time walking and exploring. Although...

The cottages are wonderful and the staff maintains the grounds and the units perfectly. They are responsive and welcoming. Wonderful sitting area where coffee, tea and goodies are available. And of course the location is just stunning !

We were amazed at how lovely and secluded the property was with easy access to the Tidal River and adjacent beach. We were just passing through on the way to Acadia National Park, but were so impressed, stayed an extra night on the return trip. The cottages are beautiful and rooms so clean, cozy and well decorated. Terrific value!

Our "Jersey" friend has been staying at The Dunes for a number of years. It's her favorite place to stay in Ogunquit. Now we know why! Our cabin was just perfect. A 2 bedroom 1 bath cabin with Living Room & Fireplace, a full Kitchen, and a screened porch near the water. Friendly service from all the family & staff...

We had a wonderful time at The Dunes!! Our room was perfect. King size bed, mini fridge, Keurig, and a beautiful, newly remodeled bathroom with a large shower. Everything was exactly as pictured on the website (although the pictures do not do the views any justice! The grounds are just breathtaking!!) We are already planning for a trip back in...

Beautiful property and lovely room. Our room was in one of the duplex cottages, and was recently renovated. It was very nice and comfortable. The bed was comfy - and loved the pillows! Really nice shower. We only stayed one night, but we will be back and stay longer next time.

We stayed in early October which is sort of off-season in Ogunquit. We really enjoyed our stay. The property is a 10min walk from downtown and set way back from Rt. 1. Very quite. We stayed in a Guest Room with a king bed in one of the cottage buildings. It was excellent. The cottages are very far apart and...

The room was nicely furnished, well but softly lit (no harsh fluorescent or LED bulbs), big fluffy towels, pull down shades and heavy curtains, a Keurig with coffee and tea pods, fabulous pastries and more coffee in the office, exceptionally gracious staff...I could go on and on but here are a few pictures. My room was on the top floor...
