First time visiting this resort and spent one night in one of the motel style rooms. Although the room was extremely small, the overall feel of the resort made the room seem irrelevant. The resort brings back amazing memories from childhood summer camps with the spread out cottages. We took a tour of one of the cottages and will certainly... More

We have been going to the Dunes for 7 years and have enjoyed every minute we have spent there. The views are beautiful- overlooking the tidal river with the dunes and ocean beyond. As soon as you pull in the driveway, you realize you have found a slice of paradise just outside Ogunquit center. The entire staff- Katie Tammie, Scott,... More

This resort is quiet, relaxing and very unique. There are quaint cottages and guest rooms spread over 12 acres right on the Ogunquit River. The view of the river, dunes and ocean is absolutely beautiful! We spend a week there each June as a family and it is such a thrill for our grandsons to experience all it has to... More

It has taken me a week to come down from my experience. This year has been such a memorable and eventful one adding our weekend of the 13th of June propelled it even higher. Upon arriving on a cold and rainy day, my partner and I were met by Katie and Scott whose warmth and kindness immediately melted the dampness.... More

To Katie and Aaron at the Dunes: My husband and I want to thank you for a perfect stay. The setting for the Dunes is unbelievable. I think we had the perfect room in 16B for the setting and privacy. It was just what we needed. The grounds and the rooms are unbelievably well maintained. We loved all of the... More

We loved staying at The Dunes on the Waterfront in Ogunquit. The grounds were spacious and beautiful and our room was very comfortable. The cottages looked fantastic and will will try to stay in one another time. The view of the tidal river and the ocean was fantastic. We love the gorgeous green lawn and the trees and flower beds....

My wife and I decided to forego the usual hotel accommodations in favor of something a bit more rustic for our annual early June vacation to the southern Maine coast. We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at a cottage at The Dunes on the Waterfront. The cottages are kind of laid out like a campground, with copious adirondack chairs... More

First time at The Dunes; won't be the last. Perfect, so New England, beautiful view, awesome wood burning fireplace, screened porch....all the amenities were top notch. Management was cordial and very helpful. Wonderful place to relax, within walking distance of downtown and generally met our standards at all times. Can't wait to go back!
