Cliff House Maine

Cliff House Maine

Standing tall at the North Atlantic shore where the enchanting waters of York merge with the suburban vibes of New England, Cliff House Maine nails the top slot for being one of the top holiday destinations for the ones looking for a relaxing vacation. The iconic resort dates back to 1872, whereby it earned a reputation of being the go-to place for wealthy guests seeking leisure holidays by the sea with an ocean view. 

More than a century later, and the Cliff House Maine still manages to sustain its striking reputation. Moreover, the resort is known for being the gateway to the famous nubble lighthouse for wanderers chasing coastal views. Owing to its ravishing structure, urbane amenities, and pristine location, Cliff House Maine attracts travelers from all across the globe today. 

Just moments away from Ogunquit's beach and an hour's drive from north of Boston, the holiday resort occupies an astounding 70 acres across the ocean. This lets guests in on some remarkable views of the cliff, all the while serving them with comfort, leisure, quality time, and more.


Catering guests with a total of 226 luxury rooms and suites, the resort is one of its kind. The Cliff House Maine accommodates visitors with guest rooms that unleash a breathtaking view of the surreal bald head cliff via its private terraces. Enjoy a refined taste of some modern architecture. These intertwine in between handcrafted features with ocean hues while retaining an upscale suburban cabin's upscale comfort. 

Custom-designed furnishings and double-height panoramic windows unveil another side of quality family time, with social gatherings and meetings. There are also corporate events finding the appropriate setting at the resort. 

The property has 25,000 square feet of coastal space dedicated to social events. Furthermore, it takes it all up a notch with its Atlantic Ballroom enhancement. Besides, the ballroom windows unravel a never-ending view of an endless ocean, letting guests devour a true taste of the Atlantic waters. 

Additionally, there is a luxury spa and wellness center, the oceanfront Tiller Restaurant, Nubb´s lobster shack Restaurant, a family pool, and an outdoor pool. Hot tubs are also a major attraction at the resort, letting guests experience a full-fledged holiday throughout the year. 


The resort met its inception in 1872 in the North East of the United States. Here is where it first operated as a farm and was managed by Elsie Jane. The family business quickly turned into a holiday resort owing to its quality services and scrumptious meals. 

Cliff House Maine refurbished its name onto being a zone for the refined in taste. Therefore, it caters to guests with quality time spent at the resort and recreational activities by the beach. Moreover, the spa is its ultimate claim to fame, letting elite guests in on some major self-indulgence. 

The floor-to-ceiling windows and the bunk suite enhancement also let the resort stand apart from its competitors with a certain Victorian appeal. Formerly known for its card parties, horseshoe pitching, croquet, and luscious lawns, the hotel is a rather versatile avenue. It lets guests devour heavenly views of the Atlantic waters merging with the endless horizon.

As the former owner of the resort handed over her legacy to her brother, Edward T. Weare, and her son, Charles, the resort quickly turned into a modern-day masterpiece. The bowling alley, a theater at the oceanfront, the Oceanview Annex, and the Colonial Annex were the major enhancements that Charles and Edward T. put together during their tenure. 

The Colonial Annex brought about private baths' exclusive feature, letting it occupy the top slot in a traveler's list. Moreover, Charles took the "modernization" characteristic a notch higher. He integrated the much sought-after "motoring" activities for guests seeking the thrill of automobiles.

The Stunning Cuisine 

Paying homage to Maine's culinary heritage, Cliff House holds the art of dining to be its main attraction. Staying true to authentic Mediterranean-style cuisine, the resort thrives on promoting the local fishermen, farmers, purveyors, and distillers in its catering services. Moreover, curating stock from the local businesses lets the resort endorse a sustainable approach. This no doubt attracts better goodwill to the hotel. 

The cuisine is original and true to the hotel's innovative persona. Besides, Cliff House merges a cheese confectionery's rustic charm with the urbane appeal of a bar. Char-grilled vegetables, brown butter bathed ricotta gnocchi, and some rich Treviso blue cheese fondue are also a major attraction. 

Additionally, the bar serves guests a myriad of fresh cocktails and juices. These accompany a hearty serving of whole-grain loaves of bread and vegetable bowls. The bar is, however, known for its rare selection of home-brewed beers. 

The Spa 

Talk about the extraordinary view of the enchanting cliffs of Maine, and you are bound to skip a beat. Top that up with a state-of-the-art spa at your behest at the Cliff House Maine's sanctuary, and the charm intensifies. The beautiful view is all yours to devour while you indulge yourself in a tranquil atmosphere. Unwind from the hectic day at the beach or prep up for some significant recreational activities. 

The spa entails modern procedures that revitalize, comfort, and invigorate the body. Apart from the therapeutic and holistic procedures it renders, the vicinity specializes in nail, body, and skin treatments. These let clients in on some high-end skincare and aesthetics. Also, the luxury spa pampers guests to the tee. Besides, in case they want to keep up with their fitness routine, Cliff House has a total of 9000 square feet of its premises dedicated solely to a fitness facility. 

The concept behind the spa and the fitness center reminisces natural elements. These include water, earth, sky, and nature's countless wonders. Guests vacationing are bound to rediscover a new side to life that begins right inside the saunas and steam rooms, ending at the breathtaking Atlantic shore.
