“Always Relaxing and Unfailingly Clean!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

Please note well that we would not keep returning for a decade-and-a-half if the Sparhawk wasn’t, truly, a wonderful place to stay. My family once again recommends this warm, friendly and relaxing resort to all. This was our 15th year's vacation at the Sparhawk and it remains an outstanding resort. We stayed in the same room in the Barbara Dean, completely redone a year or two ago yet it still looks brand-new. The rooms and beautiful grounds are always well-maintained and impeccably clean. This resort is a grand place to stay, a lovely continental breakfast is available, there is a tennis court and a heated pool (my guesstimate is eighty Fahrenheit in mid-June). The staff and management are as unfailingly cheerful and helpful as they have always been. In my ratings the “Room Service” reflects the quality of the Housekeeping, since there is not Room Service such as one would have at a hotel (i.e., ask to have food delivered), the “Restaurant” is for the Continental Breakfast and the “Internet” is Wi-Fi, one obtains a password at the desk.

If you want a taste of the Maine coast, this is the place to stay (request ocean front building with patios) gorgeous landscape, tennis court & includes a lovely breakfast.
Were lucky to get a corner room with even more expansive views of ocean & the Marginal Way linking this part of beach to Perkins Cove- hugging the Atlantic with gorgeous views & access to secluded beach areas in several places (newly cemented stairways), with tidal pools after tide goes out; lots of benches to just sit & reflect.

We have been staying at the Sparhawk for many years. The updated room was very nice in the Ireland House The granite countertops from Maine were especially nice. I did not like the new lamps in the Ireland house but everything else was great. The continental breakfast was great. I wished they would keep it open until 11 as people are on vacation. Lord's HArborview Restaurant was excellent in Wells, Bobs Clam shack in Kittery was great.

My husband and I have had a beautiful time at the Sparhawk in Ogunquit, Maine. It is such a wonderful resort and we have so enjoyed visiting twice a year for the last twenty years!!! It certainly is Home away from Home to us. Everyone is so loving and kind and the resort itself is right on the ocean and we just love our deck time!!! We find such peace and contentment here and are already looking forward to our visit in September!! Everyone who visits is always completely satisfied.

I have never been one to take the time to post on a site regarding my experience however I was so pleased with my experience at the Sparhawk I feel compelled.
From the professional staff to the well manicured grounds I found this property to be especially pleasing.

The front staff was always "jonny on the spot" It felt like I was at "Cheers" where they know your name, and you feel like family. It felt like the traditional "New England" holiday. The rooms were nicely appointed, the views..... WOW !! I will never stay at another property. Carol Butler, thank you so much for always being so kind to us.

Regards,

C Bass

My wife and I have been going to the Sparhawk for the last 15 years and have had wonderful stays there. The rooms are super clean and the people are like family.
We are retired now, and spend most of our time in Florida, but every time we go to New Engleand we spend some time at the Sparhawk. We have two stays planned for this summer. If you go there you will not be sorry: it's the best. John K.

The Sparhawk has comfortable rooms and has a great location on the Marginal Way and near many shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Barbara Jean, in a nicely renovated room with two queen-sized beds, a small living room, and a patio facing the ocean across a field. The rooms in the main building are right on the ocean. The rate includes a continental breakfast, and the hotel has a heated outdoor pool and shuffleboard court. The front desk staff is helpful. We would stay again.
