To start planning your vacation to Cliff House
Perched on the rocky cliffside of the coastal town of Ogunquit, Cliff House has been elegantly designed to reflect it's picture-perfect seaside location. Modern and nautical in style, families will love the opportunities for exciting ocean adventures.
Thoughtfully designed to illuminate the raw beauty of Maine's stunning coastline, Cliff House offers a beautiful retreat from the outdoors. Featuring floor to ceiling windows in the public spaces, guests are encouraged to admire the sweeping blue waters of the Atlantic below and relax to the sights and sounds of crashing waves.
Guest rooms and suites at Cliff House offer an oasis of coastal chic, with subtle tones of blues, whites and yellows. Each room and suite offers beautiful views of the rocky coastline below and a cosy balcony to enjoy the gentle ocean breezes and watch the tidal changes. Spot the famous Nubble Lighthouse in the distance or admire the sands of York Beach, perhaps even catch a glimpse of a passing whale as you enjoy your morning coffee. Spacious and elegant, the rooms truly reflect the very best of Maine culture - laid back yet sophisticated, casual yet refined.
Dotted around the hotel are little refreshment stations, perfect for refuelling during a day of activities or grabbing a coffee before heading out on a sunrise cliff walk. Fully stocked with fresh fruit, tea and coffee as well as filtered water, you can always grab a snack when you need. In the evenings, guests can head to The Tiller, a casual restaurant offering delicious farm-to-table cuisine, or pop to Nubb's the hotel's very own lobster shack.
After a day of adventure out on the water, visiting the Spa is the ultimate treat. Indulge in a wide range of luxurious treatments that pamper you head to toe. Taking inspiration from the beauty of the Maine elements, the Spa will ensure you make time to relax and unwind as well as make the most of coastal adventures.
The Cliff House Crew Club runs for children aged 4-12 years. The children will take part in engaging and educational activities where they will learn about the nature, crafts and customs of Maine. Activities will range from build-a-bear, arts and crafts, story time, lawn games and guest appearances from animals from the nearby Center for Wildlife. Children can attend the Crew Club for the morning, afternoon or the full day.
There is a tranquil spa area influenced by the natural elements of water, stone, sky and sand that surround coastal Maine. Guests can relax in the ocean front sanctuary before relaxing with a unique skincare or body treatment. A treatment must be booked for use of the spa or a day pass can be purchased. There is also a fitness center, an indoor swimming pool and two outdoor swimming pools – a family pool and an adult only pool.
