places to stay

Hotels, Motels, Seaside Inns, B&Bs, Campgrounds, Resorts, and Vacation Rentals

A seemingly endless variety

Many of the resorts, hotels, and motels that line the beautiful coastline in The Maine Beaches today played a significant role in defining the whole of Maine as Vacationland. Then, as now, everything that a vacationer could need is nearby. But as times have changed, so have the lodging options. 

The Choice is Yours

Can we recommend a resort where the staff meets your every need, from superb meals and a round of golf to time relaxing in the on-site spa? Resorts such as Ogunquit’s Anchorage by the Sea, Breakwater Inn in Kennebunkport, and Cliff House Maine on Cape Neddick offer unmatched service to create an unforgettable experience. 

There are great places to stay with names that say “summer at the beach.” Sea View Inn in OOB, Lafayette’s Oceanfront Resort on Wells Beach, York’s The Cutty Sark Motel, and The Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport are a short walk from
the rolling surf, shopping, and dining options. 

Many guests prefer the more traditional feel of the region’s many well-appointed B&Bs, inns, and cottages. Kennebunkport’s Captain Lord Mansion, The Trellis House in Ogunquit and the romantic Sea Cliff House in OOB top the list. Each inn offers ideal locations and unmatched amenities.

Our beachside communities along US Route 1 are lined with family-and kid-friendly hotels and motels. The Dunes on the Waterfront in Ogunquit and the Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport rank among the favorites.

For those looking to sleep out under the stars during their stay, the area offers outdoor lodging options for every style and budget, from a prime spot for your RV at Bayley’s Camping Resort or Old Orchard Beach Campground to glamping at Sandy Pines in Kennebunkport or Huttopia in Sanford. For a lakeside camp experience, Sanford’s Apache Campground is for you. 

Those looking for more extended stays or something a bit different should try one of our local vacation rental services. They will help you find a beachfront condo, private estate, hidden cottage, or rustic lakeside retreat.
