A Serene Place to Stay and Play

Nestled on a patch of green grass by the edge of the Ogunquit Tidal River, The Dunes on the Waterfront is a traditional Maine cottage colony where guests return year after year for one simple reason – we’re a tranquil and comfortable place to slow down, relax, and enjoy the sand, sun, and sea with family and friends. From stand-alone cottages to studios to hotel-style rooms, our facility is perfect for anyone who’d like to stay awhile in a spot by the sea.

Cottages By The Sea

The Dunes is unlike other resorts in Ogunquit. Here, clapboard cottages with green shutters and white picket fences are rooted around patches of tulips, stately pines, and the glistening tidal flats of the Ogunquit River that lay just outside your door. Snug in between an expanse of water to the front and quiet undeveloped forest to the back, our cottages often makes guests feel as if they have escaped time.

Each of our one and two-bedroom cottages have hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplaces, kitchen accouterments, bathrooms, and outdoor seating areas. All buildings are private but are easily accessible from anywhere on the grounds, making our cottages a great option for a large family or a reunion group visiting for a special occasion. Leave your sandals by the screened-in porch and set out for a barefoot beach walk or row down the river in our wooden dories.

At the end of the day, savor your supper by the fireplace as you watch the fireflies emerge outside. Discover why there’s nothing quite like cottage living here at The Dunes.
