The Dunes Version 79: What’s New for 2014

Relax near the water at Ogunquit resort

As we get ready for the start of our 79th summer season, we’re putting the finishing touches on a few exciting changes and updates. Even with a few nail-biting moments, all will be ready in time for April 25 — the day our Ogunquit cottages & resort open for another season!

If you’re a returning guest, the first thing that you’ll probably notice is a new and improved pool area. We’ve redone the inside of the pool with a sparkly new finish, but more importantly, we’ve rebuilt and expanded the pool deck. The new stone deck is much larger, and while we can’t promise you’ll have enough room to swing a cat on hot days, there will definitely be more space to spread out. New lighting around the pool make it a pleasant place to spend the twilight hours.

Inside our rooms and cottages, we’ve finished replacing all of our televisions (goodbye, big ugly boxes!) and added new charging devices for cell phones, tablets and iPods in every room. No more scrambling for an outlet or skirmishes over a plug — this is an end to the charging wars.

A couple of our Ogunquit cottages have seen more extensive upgrades, too. Cottages 11 and 15 have brand-new kitchens — we even moved the doors to create a better kitchen layout! We’re pleased to have custom cabinets made by local wood workers at Swift River Wood Products of New Hampshire, which we’ve used throughout the property. Along with the new kitchen, we completely remodeled the bathroom in Cottage 11, from tile on up.

We can’t wait to show you this year’s version (The Dunes v.79) of our waterside resort in person! Make your plans and book a package or a comfortable Ogunquit cottage soon — few of the best things to do in Ogunquit have changed.
