The location was amazing. There was nothing like eating a lobster pizza and just soaking up the sun and view on one of the property's lawn chairs. Everything we needed was within walking distance: the beach, cafes, restaurants, ice cream, Marginal Way. The staff was accommodating (someone made sure we could get to our room when we arrived late at... More

They should have left it alone, the renovation are clearly unthought of. Do not stay in room 301 in the carriage house unless you are found of vibrations. You can not even be in the the bedroom. We had to fight to who was going to to sleep in there. The other choice was a trundle bed that was on... More

We've stayed here (in the Dockside section) twice now and are looking forward to coming back. The rooms are very clean, bright & comfortable, decorated in a cottage style. The location is excellent, with a great view of the ocean, which is just a short walk away. It's also a short walk to the shops and restaurants. The staff is... More

We love the Marginal Way house for the simple reason that it has friendly staff, clean rooms and an AMAZING view! The rates are especially reasonable given the location! We visit at least once every summer!

We looked at the weather, and made a quick decision to go to Ogunquit for the weekend at the end of August. We reserved the last room offered on line. The king suite was very attractive, clean, and comfortable. The location was perfect! We could walk to the beach, and into the town restaurants and shops. The staff were friendly... More

Recently, we were delighted to stay in the newly renovated Wharf House. Our room featured a separate bedroom, full kitchen (stove, microwave, fridge and... More

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
