Our large group of friends (covering three generations) has stayed at the Marginal Way House during Memorial Day Weekend for 15 years with the best of relations with the previous management. However, these enjoyable years ended this past week, as the new owners have issued rules which discourage children and pets, and even limit what you can prepare in your... More

We have enjoyed our annual visits to The Marginal Way House, always staying in the main house in previous years. This year, one of the property managers suggested that we try the newly renovated Wharf House since it would provide us with a king size bed, beautifully tiled bath and shower, full kitchen and to top it off, a private...

The location is superb; parking great;close for walking, shopping, trolley. Most significant is the friendly, efficient, helpful and caring personalized staff who is always available. As a handicapped woman, I appreciate this quality. I have been coming here solo for almost 20 years, a place for me to write, to relax and reflect on the beautiful sunrises, the peaceful atmosphere,... More

We stay here every summer during our family reunion. There is an actual family house but it is packed full and this is where we go with the overflow. It is like staying in an old summer house on the coast of Maine, complete with creaky stairs, chintz wallpaper and old wicker and well worn antiques. The location is probably... More

Spouse and I stayed here recently on our trip along the Maine coast. It has a great location and you can easily walk to everything in Ogunquit. While it does not have direct access to Marginal Way, it's only a short walk away. We had a very large and sunny room, with a partial water view, albeit on the third... More

The Marginal Way House (MWH) proved to be a good location to enjoy and explore Ogunquit. There was no need to drive anywhere once we parked on site. We stayed 2 nights, walking the Marginal Way several times, sampling several nearby restaurants, and taking a few delightful pictures of the area. Our room was located on the third floor (no...

Location of property is very nice as it is right on the water with great views. Housekeeping was a disappointment. We stayed 2 days and the maid did not leave shampoo for the 2nd day. She also left our dirty glasses (the ones provided by hotel)

Last year, we walked all over Ogunquit looking for the best place to stay for this year. There was no question that the Marginal Way House was our top choice. We felt very lucky to get a room in the Dockside Motel. I called many times last September and booked it as soon as they knew it would be available.... More

Been coming here for four years now and a total of 45 to Ogunquit. It's a five star location with 2 star services. We are hoping that the new owners will upgrade the facility. I always tip the chambermaids generously. Not so this year ! I left half the amount as the floors were never vacuumed and the mirrors not... More
