We stayed last week at the Dunes after a long work trip for some rest & relaxation. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great - apart from on our last day of course! We went across to the beach via the rowing boats (be aware that the current can be strong on the river when its cloudy/windy). Had a lovely bracing walk...

Bad weather, but lovely property. Had no chance to try rowboats, but fireplace was wonderful. Furniture is a bit dated, but comfortable otherwise. Would like to be closer to the water next time. Wish we had been offered a property closer to water.

We can't say enough about our stay at the Dunes. From the moment you arrive you are made to feel soo welcomed. The room/cottage was warm and every little detail was taken care of. The view of the dunes and the ocean was just what we wanted. The staff was professional, friendly and warm. The grounds are beautiful. You'll find...

On the recommendation of a friend who has stayed at The Dunes on the Waterfront for many years, we finally booked a cottage for a four night stay. This was our first trip to the area and we had way too many sightseeing objectives planned and wound up spending most of our time away from the cottage. This was a...

We headed up to The Dunes for Doggy Weekend, which was the last weekend in October. The grounds and accommodations are quiet and beautiful, and you can't beat the sunrise over the ocean. This was a wonderful weekend for bringing dogs to the beach (not typically allowed during high season), so we had a fine time walking and exploring. Although...

The cottages are wonderful and the staff maintains the grounds and the units perfectly. They are responsive and welcoming. Wonderful sitting area where coffee, tea and goodies are available. And of course the location is just stunning !

We were amazed at how lovely and secluded the property was with easy access to the Tidal River and adjacent beach. We were just passing through on the way to Acadia National Park, but were so impressed, stayed an extra night on the return trip. The cottages are beautiful and rooms so clean, cozy and well decorated. Terrific value!

Our "Jersey" friend has been staying at The Dunes for a number of years. It's her favorite place to stay in Ogunquit. Now we know why! Our cabin was just perfect. A 2 bedroom 1 bath cabin with Living Room & Fireplace, a full Kitchen, and a screened porch near the water. Friendly service from all the family & staff...

We had a wonderful time at The Dunes!! Our room was perfect. King size bed, mini fridge, Keurig, and a beautiful, newly remodeled bathroom with a large shower. Everything was exactly as pictured on the website (although the pictures do not do the views any justice! The grounds are just breathtaking!!) We are already planning for a trip back in...
