Cottages in Ogunquit, Maine

Cottages in Ogunquit, Maine
Meaning "beautiful place by the sea," in the language of the Algonquin Indians, Ogunquit, Maine, is a small resort town 65 miles north of Boston. Marginal Way, a cliff-side walk along the shoreline, and the Mount Agamenticus Trail, which is more than 700 feet above sea level, attract outdoor enthusiasts and tourists alike. Marginal Way is an easy walk for all ages and has a paved trail with benches and lookouts as well as a 180-degree ocean view. Coastal Maine is famous for having little cottages and cabins along the shoreline for tourists to rent, rather than just standard motel and hotel accommodations.

Ogunquit Cottages

The Ogunquit Cottages are a little different from a standard cottage rental. These aren't little cottages in a common resort area, but rather small homes, remodeled and rented out weekly in the summer and monthly in the winter. Each of the cottages offers its own unique style and is part of the neighborhood in which it sits. If you believe that the only way to experience a place is to live there, even for a week, these cottages will give you that feeling. These are also great cottages for those looking to stay in and explore occasionally, rather than go out and about all the time. Each cottage comes fully furnished and provides: cable TV, DVD players, a stereo and a washer and dryer in the cottage. Different cottages feature fireplaces, large yards, decks, enclosed porches and walking distance to the beach or town.
