About the area

OGUNQUIT - BEAUTIFUL PLACE BY THE SEA Picture a postcard ''''''a pristine beach, waves crashing into granite cliffs, evergreens rising above the birch trees. Whether it's a breathtaking view of the seascape, an image of a lobster boat passing through the hand-operated drawbridge in Perkins Cove, or one of Ogunquit's fragrant and meticulously manicured gardens ''''''there's a potential postcard with every step. Artists discovered Ogunquit's inspirational scenery over a century ago. They helped transform the quaint fishing hamlet into one of the most picturesque and enjoyed seaside resort villages in New England. While the artist's provide an array of fine collectibles and artwork sought throughout the East Coast and displayed in our intimate museums, it's the world-class beach and magnificent coastline that attract visitors from around the globe. The mouth of the tidal Ogunquit River separates three miles of white sandy beach from the craggy granite ledge which dives into the Atlantic. Millions of visitors have walked the Marginal Way, a scenic cliff-walk that meanders along the ocean for over a mile. Theater lovers flock to the many playhouses for the summer stock performances. Shoppers rave about the assortment of galleries, boutiques and gift shops and discriminating diners have an abundant selection of fine restaurants to satisfy nearly every taste - including lobster! Recreation enthusiasts love Ogunquit because our front yard is an ocean and our backyard is the "Vacationland" known as Maine. You can try deep-sea fishing, cast a rod into the river, even learn about trapping lobster with a licensed captain or play a round of golf at some of New England's top rated courses. Sailing, sea kayaking and whale watching are popular activities as well as hiking nearby Mount Agamenticus or the Wells Reserve at Laudholm Farm. Whether it's a romantic retreat, a family escape to the beach or an outdoor adventure, Ogunquit is your premier destination.

“A cozy, comfortable and convenient cottage”

Reviewed 12 Sep 2016

This was my first time in Ogunquit and I was pleased with this cottage. Well organized, well located and well served by the owner who answers our requests from London !!! Close to the beach, to down town Ogunquit and Kennebunk port . I strongly recommend this location !

Owner's reply: Nicolle thank you so much for your kind words and I am glad you enjoyed Ogunquit :) and the cottage! I'm sorry you had some trouble about the Internet and I'm still not sure what's up with that toilet but the plumber was there today :) those fancy toilets are definitely not worth the effort and problems! I'll probably change it for next year as this was the second issue this season with that thing. Anyhow glad you made it home safely and thanks for visiting. Richard

“Best Escape!”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2016

The home offers every comfort and convenience anyone could imagine, but more importantly, it feels like home. Its small appearance from the exterior serves as an illusion for the spacious, immaculate interior, with tasteful decor, modern updates, and a welcoming brochure with instructions on how to use the WiFi, cable, gaming, and more. The combination of AC and ceiling fans ensures the ideal temperature for sleeping, watching movies, or dining. Best of all, its central location makes it possible to spend mornings at the beach, afternoons along the Marginal Way, and evening in town, all without needing to move your car. We have stayed here twice and have already booked it again. The owner is gracious, magnanimous, and as friendly as a long lost friend. Enjoy!

“Perfect Accomodations!”

Reviewed 3 Aug 2016

I don't think we could have had a better experience. This was the first time we ever tried a weekly rental and we would not hesitate to rent from Richard again! Richard could not have been more accommodating and really cares whether his guests are completely comfortable. We were so pleasantly surprised that the house was equipped with everything you could imagine. Really felt like home, very up-to-date and so immaculate. The neighborhood was very quiet. When inside the house you don't even know there are houses nearby. There was plenty of space for seven of us and the house was within walking distance to the beautiful Footbridge Beach and if you don't want to walk, the stop for the trolley is right there! Richard is such a thoughtful person and wants all of his guests to enjoy their stay to the fullest. We are looking forward to returning next summer.

This cottage was everything that Richard promised it would be. All the comforts of home in a quaint and immaculate rental which was centrally located and close to other towns that we were able to explore. Richard was always available for help with questions or concerns. We are looking forward to our next trip there in 2017!

Owner's reply: Anita, Thanks so much, it was a pleasure having you and your friends. I am glad you enjoyed the cottage, I hope you come back soon. You were all such fun :)

Des vacances parfaites en famille. Propre, spacieux, tout équipée dans un site tranquille. Vous vous sentirez comme à la maison. Le propriétaire est disponible et facile à contacter.
