Picture this: a charming whitewashed cottage that overlooks the majestic waves of the Atlantic Ocean, complete with hardwood floors, cozy living spaces where you can indulge in the finest lobster around, and a premier location just minutes from all the wonders of Ogunquit, Maine. If this sounds a little like paradise to you, then you’ve found the perfect place for your next vacation. Welcome to The Dunes on the Waterfront, your answer to an authentic Maine getaway.
Resting on 12 acres just across the tidal river from stunning Ogunquit Beach, The Dunes on the Waterfront is everything you’re looking for in comfort, relaxation, and beauty. The Dunes strives to provide guests with the chance to leave all their worries behind and merely indulge in life’s simple pleasures. This is the place where you can wake up at your leisure to sunny skies and the sound of the waves, where you can spend an afternoon exploring the soft sand dunes along the coast, and visit the many local sites just minutes away.
“We’re trying to maintain the hotel as a place that really is a little bit different from the typical hotel experience,” said Aaron Perkins, Owner at The Dunes. “A place where people can come enjoy the scenery, enjoy the beach, and be here with their family."
Traverse the waters of the Atlantic on a stand-up paddleboard or kayak, build a sandcastle on the shore with the kids, or plan a trip to the popular Perkins Cove. For even more fun, you can enjoy a day at the Funtown Splashtown, or unwind at one of the exciting live shows performed at the Ogunquit Playhouse. Get a little taste of the area’s rich history at the Ogunquit Heritage Museum, or play a round of golf at one of four local golf courses that offer an exceptional experience for both the expert and beginner. Top it all off with the most incredible whale-watching trip imaginable with Nick’s Chance Whale Watch Tour!
At the end of your day, retreat to your cozy home-away-from-home at The Dunes. Their cottages feature all the comforts you’d expect in a modern getaway such as full kitchens, private bathrooms, wood-burning fireplaces, and screened porches. Their regular cottages can accommodate up to six people, making them perfect for families, while their cottage suites are ideal for couples looking for a romantic reprieve.
No matter who you’re here with, you’re guaranteed a comfortable and memorable experience. Alison, a longtime guest at The Dunes, said, "It’s a little bastion of peacefulness. Beautiful grass and trees, and you look across to the most beautiful vista of the dunes and the ocean.”
