Loved our stay here, thank you!!! Wonderful property, 5 min walk to the beach and right around the corner from the main "drag" and marginal way. Our room 104 was newly remodeled, very clean and mostly comfortable. Mattresses could be improved :). The property is has beautiful views of the ocean.

We've been staying at the Marginal Way House for 10+ years and love everything about it with one exception....no connectivity. It is hard to believe that in 2016 you can stay anywhere and not be connected but the wifi service here is nonexistent.

Back to the Marginal Way house. We've been coming here for over 40 years, and still love it. Many new improvements this year (new stairs to the main house, the dead pine tree is gone (Yay!), and an improved parking lot with assigned spots. Beautiful new landscaping and stonework everywhere.The renovated Wharf House and Carriage House are tremendous improvements over... More

We stayed in room 112, a small room on the third floor with a magnificent view. It was worth the 2 flights spiral flights of stairs to get there and be able to look directly out to the ocean. The location is very convenient-park your car in their parking lot and never touch it again (and given the bumper to... More

It helped that the weather was perfect, but we (my son and I) couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. We stayed in the main house in room 110, a basic but lovely and comfortable room. The location was ideal, downtown, overlooking Ogunquit beach. The actual entrance to the beautiful beach is about a 1/4 mile or so walk away. Surprisingly, the... More

We've been vacationing in Ogunquit for 25 years and this was our 1st stay at MWH....but definitely not our last! We stayed in room 401 in the Dockside building for 5 nights over the July 4th holiday. Beautifully decorated bright room with extremely comfortable king size bed and gorgeous tiled bathroom with large walk-in shower. Everything was immaculately clean. Now... More

3 night stay, 2nd floor of Dockside "motel". it is not really a motel, but a very nice room with a king bed and great bath with large walk in shower. Deck overlooks the Ogunquit river and beyond that the ocean. Beautiful sunrises from the large picture window with privacy shutters. Small fridge in the large closet was great. Property... More

We've been coming here for 40 years now. It's a Shangri-La. Main thing is the location. Just five minutes walk to the beach and even less to the village itself, yet the grounds are completely quiet and secluded. Just to sit in the beautiful garden, enclosed on three sides with the fourth side overlooking the ocean and beach is a... More
