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 resort for relaxing and replenishing escapes. 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.

About This Place: Our Ogunquit Maine Resort

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

Each of our one and two-bedroom cottages have hardwood floors, wood burning fireplaces, kitchen accoutrements, bathrooms, and outdoor seating areas. All buildings are private but easily accessible from anywhere else 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.

On the other hand, our guestroom lodgings are smaller and cozier for a romantic couple or the solo traveler looking for some seaside quiet. All of our visitors will appreciate how we honor our incredible natural setting by taking care of it with eco-friendly operating principles.

However you like to vacation, our classic accommodations and one-of-a-kind campus make Maine fun easy. You’ll discover that The Dunes is much more than just another Maine beach resort. In fact, it may just be your next paradise.
