Better Get Packin’ …

A Handy Packing List for Your Vacation at The Dunes

How could you possibly have forgotten to pack the …

Whoops. We’ve heard that one before. Alot. But let’s face it. Packing for vacation can be hard. Not everything fits in a suitcase. Forget Johnny’s boogie board? Cassie’s new bathing suit? The cooler? The wine? Or maybe some things you didn’t even know you needed. There’s nothing worse than scrambling around in search of those essentials you somehow forgot to pack. We feel your pain. Which is why we’ve put together a list of must have, absolutely can’t forget items based on our guests’ actual packing experiences.

Beach Stuff

We’ll stay away from basic clothing and focus on the really important things – like what to bring to the beach. We’re guessing you and your family will be spending some time there.

  • Beach umbrellas
  • Beach chairs
  • Boogie boards
  • Small cooler
  • Small thermos
  • Beach towels
  • Water shoes
  • Bathing suits
  • Hats
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses

Okay. You carefully put together your packing list. But you just plain ran out of room. Ogunquit Beach and Sport – located in downtown Ogunquit – will deliver beach gear rentals right to your cottage door if you simply don’t have enough room for all those chairs, boogie boards, beach caddies, etc.

Off the Beach Stuff

Think cottages … lobster … cookouts … quiet time on the lawn … after dinner drinks. You get the picture.

  • Wine
  • Liquor
  • Yeti mugs
  • Napkins
  • Paper towels
  • Family games
    (we’ve got some on hand but you might want to bring your favorites as well)
  • Bug spray
  • Flashlight
  • Electronics chargers
  • Pool gear for the kids

There’s nothing quite like a picnic by the shore. Or by your cottage. The Ogunquit Village Food Market is a great place to pick up sandwiches and just about anything else you need for your blanket spread. Or just for lunch or dinner. Best of all. You can walk there.

Just a few suggestions to help ease those “I forgot” worries. But what about you? Are you bringing along anything special for your visit to The Dunes? Tell us and we’ll add it to the list.
