Ogunquit Attractions
Year Round

Hillcrest Inn Resort is ideally situated on the south end of Shore Road near the Ogunquit Museum of American Arts. Just a brief walk away brings you to the most photographed drawbridge in Maine, at Perkins Cove, where you can cross to numerous gift and art shops, popular restaurants and to the start of the Marginal Way. 

Perkins Cove

One of the Most Beautiful Harbors in Maine

A small active New England fishing village first established as an art community, Perkins Cove is a charming mix of historic buildings housing boutique shopping, art galleries, restaurants, and direct access to the Marginal Way.

Perkins Cove is bustling during the seasonal months and is one of the in-season town trolley stops. Off season the cove is integral to the many year-round events and festivals organized by the Chamber of Commerce

The Marginal Way

A World-Famous Seaside Experience

New England Today Travel sums it up stating “This slender 1 1/4-mile-long beauteous cliff walk is a winding path of windblown gorgeousness that edges the Atlantic like a tightrope strung along the heights.”

Starting in Perkins Cove and coming out at the edge of downtown on Shore Road, the land hosting this now paved scenic cliff walk was donated to Ogunquit in 1925.

The town boasts – and rightly so – that the Marginal Way is one of the most painted and beloved places anywhere in America. 

Ogunquit Beach

Ogunquit & the Beach

Beautiful Place by The Sea

Truly one of the prettiest places on the Coast of Maine, Ogunquit is one of the most walkable communities because of the marginal way and its 3 1/2 miles of white sandy beach. A peninsula beach with water on three sides, it is rated as one of the top beaches in the United States. 

Just a half mile from the beach downtown Ogunquit is full of local independent restaurants, shops, live music and entertainment, day or night, all year long.



Ogunquit is a True Foodie Haven

Nearby to the Inn, Perkins Cove is home to famous dining on the water at the Barnacle Billy’s restaurants, M.C. Perkins, Oarweed and Jackie’s TooGrab locally caught lobster from Footbridge Lobster and Lobster Shack, or breakfast at Cove Café.

Just outside the cove and beyond, great dining can be found at That Place, The Northern Union specializing in wine, and the Cornerstone known for its pizza and craft beer, along with so many others throughout the town.
