I love the Marginal Way House and have been coming there virtually every summer since the late 1970s. My two “kids” who are now 27 and 32 grew up thinking that summer meant a couple of weeks in Ogunquit at the MWH. My parents, siblings, nieces and nephews have joined us at various times to the point that our numbers... More

It's very hard in July and Aug to find a central location in Ogunuit - never mind cosy with a great view! Traffic is hard on Royte 1a, the sidewalks are packed on the weekends - especially with day trippers and beach goers. The Marginal Way house is perfectly situated with a short walk to the main beach, a short... More

This is the first time, in the four years we have been guests at MWH, that we stayed in a motel unit right on the water. Since we have already made reservations for 2016, this will not be our last visit to MWH, more specifically in a motel unit. Everything about this place has probably been said but let me... More

Husband and I stayed here for our 31st anniversary. We arrived late due to delayed flight. I email to let them know. Said they would leave an envelope with the key and directions to our room. When we arrived we found the envelope but there was a staff member there waiting on us to show us to our room. So... More

This was our seventh trip to the MWH. We love it there. So relaxing out on the beautiful property with the beautiful flowers. The new owner converted a 5 bedroom into 4 lovely apartments. There were a couple of issues. One was the noise which we heard from the second floor to the first floor. Another was there was no... More

My family and I have been traveling to the Marginal Way House for over 20 years. It is our home away from home. The Staff, especially Laura and Roseanna have always welcomed us with open arms and treated us like a member of the family. The new owners have done an excellent job with the upgrades. However, there are a... More

We've been coming here for the past 20 years, and always have a great time. The new owners have made some nice changes, including landscaping and two new buildings. I need to echo other comments, however, and point out that the all the chaise lounge chairs have been removed! Why? This is the nicest place in Ogunquit to enjoy the... More

Excellent service. Friendly staff, always willing to help. During our stay we had a family emergency that the manager and staff responded to immediately and appropriately. The facility has been updated with beautiful landscaping and remodeled rooms. With its beauty and easy access to Ogunquit Beach, it's the perfect place for our family to relax and enjoy.

Laura and the great crew have been part of our family now as well through the years. Thank you all to a great weekend. Can not wait until we... More

We just finished up our annual June visit to the Marginal Way House, this time a 6-night stay in one of the newly refurbished Wharf House rooms. What a blast we had, per usual! Firstly, the grounds look like something out of Better Homes & Gardens and the flowers, under Ben's loving care, are doing quite nicely, thank you. The... More
