For over 20 years, I have come to the Marginal Way House in May and October. Checking in and seeing Laura and RoseAnna is comparable to visitation with my favorite cousins. In recent years, arthritis and "Old age" have not limited my visits. Laura and RoseAnna make sure I am comfortable and safe. The renovations have required patience and adjustment... More

We've stayed here 1/2 dozen times. The view is spectacular and never gets old. We prefer room 5 in the Main House because it has a small outdoor sitting area which used to be more private. They put in a new stairway which took away the privacy. The room is very outdated but reasonably priced. Once it gets remodeled we're... More

Upon rolling into the Marginal Way House on a dark, somewhat foggy night, we were handed our keys by a super-friendly receptionist. The bottom-of-the-price-range room was small but outfitted with a bed supporting a firm mattress that made up for the excessive soft and sinking sentence imposed by the room at a different location the night before. Complementing the bed... More

We have stayed at the Marginal Way House many times because of its classic architecture, yesteryear grounds, stellar location and homey vibe. This place is an anachronism in Ogunquit with the most soul per cubic foot than anywhere else in town. They have several buildings to suit needs of families or couples. The newly renovated carriage house where we stayed... More

Hubby and I stayed at the Wharf House, a completely renovated one bedroom suite with a kitchenette a twin daybed for use as a couch and a king-size bed. This unit is not only very tastefully done ( they did not cut any corners whatsoever) but it also has a great size private deck overlooking the water and an oversize... More

Recent changes have been made, and we found MWH not be as comfortable as the place was in its comfier shabby chic past. We enjoyed our stay in Ogunquit as we always do and had our kids and small grandchildren with us. They loved to play on the lawn and watch the river and ocean. The walk to the beach... More

After a long hiatus, my family and I were thrilled to come back to Marginal Way House. It is by far, the best location in Ogunquit. It is a charming, laid back experience. The staff is efficient and very friendly. We too, were concerned when it changed ownership, that the Marginal Way House could lose its special family feel, but... More

We only spent one night here as we were visiting for just a day. The location is awesome. Ocean front views and close to restaurants and stores. Nice lawn area with plenty of tables, chairs, and umbrellas for sitting out and enjoying the view. Short walk to the Marginal way. We had room 106 which we were told had been... More
