Many of the resorts, hotels, and motels that line the beautiful stretches of sand and sea today in The Maine Beaches played a big role in defining Maine as Vacationland. Then, as now, virtually everything that a vacationing family could need was nearby. As times have changed, so have the options.

Today you can choose to stay in a resort where the staff is there to meet your every need, from superb meals and a round of golf to a few hours at the on-site spa. Resorts like The Cliff House in Cape Neddick, Ogunquit’s Anchorage by the Sea or The Dunes on the Waterfront and the Nonantum in Kennebunk offer incomparable views and unmatched service to create an unforgettable experience.

Bringing the family? Our beachside communities along the US Route 1 corridor are lined with kid (and sometimes pet) friendly hotels and motels. There are so many great places with names that just say “summertime at the beach.” The Crest Motel in OOB, The Cutty Sark Motel in York Beach, and Lafayette’s Oceanfront Resort on Wells Beach are a moment’s walk from the rolling surf and nearby to more in shopping and dining options.

Many guests prefer the more homey and traditional feel of the region’s many well-appointed B&Bs, inns, and cottages. Places like Meadowmere, The Beachmere Inn, and Juniper Hill Inn in Ogunquit, or Old Orchard Beach’s romantic Atlantic Beaches Inn have perfected their craft by offering ideal locations and unmatched amenities, all just steps away from some of Maine’s best beaches.

While many hotels, resorts, and inns offer an ideal solution for a few days or a week’s stay, those looking for long-term stays or something altogether different might want to try a vacation rental service that puts you in a beachfront condo, private estate, hidden cottage, or a super-secluded lakeside retreat.
