CLIFF HOUSE MAINE
Photos & Article by Lauren Johnson
Looking to escape the Florida humidity this summer with your family or friends? Look no further than the Cliff House in Maine.
This lovely resort is just one hour north of Boston, and minutes from the sandy shores of Ogunquit’s beaches. The property stretches across 70 oceanfront acres on Bald Head Cliff in southern Maine.
Each of its 226 luxury rooms include private terraces and stunning ocean views, with 40 suite style accommodations. They even have fun family suite options complete with bunk beds!
A real crowd pleaser. The decor throughout the rooms and the resort are maritime chic, which really captures the essence of Maine.
The resort also features 3 pools, one indoors, one dedicated to families and one adult pool. All with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Delicious dining awaits in 4 different restaurants on property. There are quick-grab goodies provided by Bald Head Coffee Company, and if you want to lounge poolside, you can order food and drinks at The Cove Bar and Grill. I highly recommend their frozen Blueberry Piña Colada.
For a casual family friendly dining experience check out Nubb’s Lobster Shack, which serves up all of the New England favorites such as lobster rolls and clam chowder and it also has games like foosball for the kids to enjoy! The Tiller is the spot for panoramic ocean views while you enjoy seasonal farm to table breakfast, lunch or dinner options. It feels like you are on board of an old schooner!
If you want to soak up the sights, the Marginal Way is nearby and offers a breathtaking walk along the ocean where you can even spot seals bathing on the rocks! And you cannot leave without exploring the adorable town of Ogunquit, or catching a peek of the Nubble Lighthouse.
If relaxation is what you are after, be sure to experience The Spa at Cliff House. With a focus on the natural surroundings of the property, you will be lulled into a peaceful state of mind in no time while enjoying one of their many treatments. And if you like to be active during your vacation, you will enjoy their state-of-the-art wellness center where you can enjoy cardio machines such as the Peloton, lift weights or sign up for one of their many fitness classes.
Cliff House truly is an exquisite property, with no detail over-looked. It is a breath of fresh air, an unforgettable place to make memories with family and friends during your summer getaway.
