Travelers' Choice
Cliff House is an iconic Maine resort inspiring a new community of travelers with its remarkable views, intuitive amenities, and emotionally rewarding experiences. Located just an easy hour's drive north of Boston, Cliff House stretches across 70 oceanfront acres atop Bald Head Cliff on the southern coast of Maine with uninterrupted easterly views of the vast Atlantic Ocean. Views north and south pan the coastline - including Ogunquit Beach and Nubble Lighthouse. Each of Cliff House's 226 inviting rooms and suites boast private terraces and luxurious amenities. Custom designed with graceful coastal style and handcrafted elements, our serene accommodations are richly textured yet comfortably refined. A luxury spa and wellness center, 5 oceanfront dining options (some seasonal), year-round programming, curated art gallery, even space and more capture the best of New England - particularly Maine - for immersive experiences in every season. Also nearby are quintessential New England towns such as Ogunquit and York- with Ogunquit Beach (and Marginal Way) 4 miles north and Cape Neddick Beach just 3 miles south. Cliff House's Guest Experience Crew is a team dedicated to helping guests book on-site and around the area activities.

Our wedding at the Cliff House in Cape Neddick, ME was an absolute dream come true. The breathtaking views of the ocean provided a stunning backdrop for our ceremony, making it an unforgettable experience. Casey Bucklin, the wedding coordinator, deserves special thanks for her exceptional attention to detail. She went above and beyond to ensure every moment was perfect, from the decor to the timeline, allowing us to relax and fully enjoy our day. The Cliff House truly exceeded our expectations, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime. We are forever grateful for Casey and the entire team for making our wedding day absolutely magical.

Hotel's Favorite
We had a wonderful weekend celebrating our anniversary at the Cliff House! It was even more breathtakingly beautiful than we could have imagined, and the service was incredible! Everyone was so friendly and helpful! We enjoyed the Ice Bar event while we were there and even got to do a private oil painting class with their resident artist Ric! I’m so excited to take a piece of the cliff house home with us! We can’t wait to come back again. Thank you Cliff House staff and Ric for a wonderful weekend we will never forget! ❤️

What an amazing place! It is beautiful to the point of being almost magical. The physical facility is artfully done—and full of art too. The staff are remarkable—personable, helpful, and each charming in their own ways. The food is delicious. And the location….breathtaking. I highly recommend this place. It is definitely expensive but worth every penny. A lovely treat for those of us who don’t typically spend that much money on a hotel! We will most certainly be returning.

Other than the bottom sheet that doesn’t tuck in, it’s perfect. Location, service, views, activities and more. Take a painting class from Ric! Worth it!! Book spa early as it fills up weeks and weeks in advance - we learned the hard way - no massages this time. Decor is lovely. We have recommended this place to many.

I’ve stayed at Cliff House a few times over the last couple years and always had a good experience. Today I called to book a NYE celebration stay. It included dinner & entertainment and an overnight stay. I was told that they had a minimum 2-night stay requirement. No problem, we’d stay an extra night. I went ahead and booked my room, and I was told I was to receive a call from concierge team to confirm the dinner & entertainment part. An hour later, I did receive the call, but only to say that the NYE Celebration Party is overbooked. I inquired about the on-site restaurant. Overbooked as well, no seating. So I paid almost $1,300 for two nights to do what? Snack on lunchables in my room on NYE? No dinner, no entertainment, no nothing. They certainly didn’t get overbooked in an hour, so they knew full well they were overbooked when they took a non-refundable room reservation. It would have been one thing if I didn’t mention the dinner & entertainment part, but I specifically said that it was the primary purpose of our stay. Very shady and misleading. I expressed my dissatisfaction, any decent concierge service would have apologized and offered to help me book a dinner in town instead or make other accommodations on my behalf to make my stay enjoyable. Nothing. Do you guys know what concierge service actually does? I guess not. At this price point I expect better.

Ric gave my daughter a private oil lesson class when we stayed at Cliffhouse for Thanksgiving. She has been wanting to learn oil painting and this was the perfect experience for her to be introduced to oils. Ric is an amazing artist and teacher. He was kind and patient with her. He was very encouraging and supportive. She ended the class with a beautiful oil painting and knowledge on how to continue oil painting after our stay. For anyone who loves to paint already or wants to learn how to start, we highly recommend taking a class with Ric at Cliffhouse.

I’ve stayed in very nice places before but Cliff House is my best ! The views are amazing-I’m glad we had a room with a balcony facing the water. Cold it was, but we enjoyed sitting out there with coffee each morning. Dinner at the Tiller was spot on and also highly recommend the lobster eggs Benedict for brunch. Service of the highest level and thoroughly enjoyed live music sitting nestled in front of the fireplace. Will definitely return.
