The location of the Dunes is wonderful. A short walk to town and many restaurants and shops, we didn't even move the car once it was parked! We loved being able to walk or row to the beach. The row boats on property were an excellent amenity and my husband and I enjoyed that special time!

We've stayed here a few times, both in the rooms and in a cottage. The property is beautiful, with green lawns, nice landscaping and great views of the water. The pool area is great with a nicely heated pool. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The property is far enough from the center of town to be away from... More

Loved our first visit! The views are superb. We enjoyed watching the spectacular sunrise each morning from their knoll above the tidal river and ocean. At low tide each day, we waded across (less than knee deep) the river to reach the undeveloped beach for long walks and few people. The property is 12 acres and units are spread out.... More

It was a very nice place to stay, very clean and the grounds were very well taken care of. The pool was small and had a dark bottom. The cottages was clean but no hair dryer. There was a town trolley for $2.00 out side the on the main road. I found it very relaxing.

We had a 3 night stay there. I love the place. It is quiet and refreshing with a very nice vue. We stayed in a room. They have also cottages. The room was comfortable but a bit small . A little more space would have been welcome. They do not serve breakfast but there is a coffee and tea machine... More

This place is wonderful and we feel we found a true hidden gem in Ogunquit, one of our favorite places. Also, as a lesbian couple we were very comfortable with all the staff and the guests. We would not have known about the property if we had not recently joined Stash. Stash hotels meet our standard for comfort, beauty and... More

My husband and I stayed in a cottage that faced the dunes. It was quaint and comfortable with a beautiful view. The location of the Dunes was perfect and within walking distance of downtown Ogunquit. During low tide we walked across to the dunes and enjoyed the beach and water. In the mornings we sat in our Adirondack chairs and... More

First time visiting and stayed in one of the hotel rooms. Terrific vacation spot. Stunning water-front property, clean rooms, friendly & responsive staff, great amenities (heated swimming pool, complimentary coffee and pastries in the beautiful office, basketball, row boats, shuffle board, maid service, etc. etc.), and even the other guests were friendly too! Located on the tidal river overlooking the... More

We visited The Dunes twice in the past few years. We stayed in the little hotel that was clean and comfortable. The property is beautiful and the staff is so pleasant. We loved how peaceful it was since it's a little bit out of the main part of Ogunquit, but not too far. It's an easy walk or you can... More
