Spent 2 days/nights at the Dunes in early May. My deluxe room (23A I believe) was pefect for a short stay. Clean and comfortable with views of the tidal river from 2 large windows. The staff was pleasant, the grounds lovely and I felt perfectly Covid safe while there. Hoping to visit again for a longer stay and maybe upgrade to a cottage with fireplace and/or kitchen.

My boyfriend booked this place on a whim in the Fall. OMG! It was so adorable. We had a cabin/cottage facing the ocean (just a short walk to it) and it was perfect. Our cabin was perfect. The kitchen was stocked with any dish or utensil you could need, a coffeemaker, etc. The bed was so comfy and we had plenty of blankets and pillows. A working fireplace in our bedroom and completely renovated and spacious bathroom. We did not want to leave. The grounds were pristine and connected to a very beautiful neighborhood. Very close to a great breakfast place, The Greenery. You can walk there! Will definitely be back.

We have been coming here with our children since the year our eldest was born (2007), and used to stay here when I was a child, all the way from Montreal. This really is a special place - the cabins are rustic but well-appointed, the grounds are beautifully maintained, and the views of the river, dunes and ocean beyond are first-rate. The cabin we stayed in this year had a recently renovated kitchen and bathroom too. All in all, our favorite place to stay in our favorite vacation destination!

Our family of 4. (2 adults, 2 teens) had an amazing 3 days at The Dunes on the Waterfront! Our room was immaculate, staff was friendly, and the cottages are spaced apart enough to socially distance. There are water views everywhere. We brought our own kayaks and paddleboards and had a great time on the river. You have to be aware of the tides if you want to cross at low tide and make a day at the beach - management is very clear on the tide times. This property is not "in town" but town is a close 15 minute walk and there are plenty of restaurants near the property. Having stayed in town three times, this was a welcome quite change away from Main Street and Shore Road where it can get a bit loud.

We stayed at the Dunes July 12-14 and had such an awesome visit. Cottage was immaculate and had it all from dishes to AC! It was fun to walk across the river at low tide to get to dune and then the Atlantic Ocean. Katie the GM and her staff are first class ! Love this place !
