About

The scenic Marginal Way, a paved mile-long winding footpath along Ogunquit’s rocky Atlantic coastline, is a short 4-minute walk from the Inn. We are only steps from the picturesque Perkins Cove Harbor, and one mile from the bustling, quaint village center. A beautiful 3-1/2 mile pristine white sandy beach is just over a mile away, accessible by either walking or utilizing one of the Ogunquit trollies that stop directly across the street from the Inn every 15 minutes. You will love the quaint village of Ogunquit and Perkins Cove for the art museums, theaters, whale watching, sunset cruises, sunbathing, fishing, boutique shops, waterfront dining, or just a walk along the beach. “Antique Alley” is here along Route One. Kittery Shopping Outlets (20 minutes) and LL Bean in Freeport (45 minutes) is an easy drive.

Another great stay!!

4.0 on April 07, 2015

Erik and Charlene continue to provide a welcoming environment and are the absolute perfect hosts. Hartwell House is the perfect location for dining in Perkins Cove or exploring the Marginal Way. Rooms are very comfortable - each one a different decor (on-line photos depict rooms as they are). Breakfast is delish!!


Quaint B&B

Just as nice second time around

Another outstanding stay at Hartwell. We were there for Ogunquit and Kennebunkport Christmas Prelude. The room was excellent and once again, our host and hostess were outstanding. We stayed two nights and had a fantastic time. The inn itself is so nice and the breakfasts are outstanding. This is fast becoming our favorite place to stay. Thank you Charlene and Eric. We will see you soon.


Great stay!

We had a great experience here! Nice friendly reception upon arrival. We stayed in the "Polly Reed" room which was very cozy with an intimate feel. The room had a spacious bathroom with a big two person jacuzzi tub. Everything was clean and spotless. Breakfast was delicious, and aesthetically pleasing. This comfortable and quaint B&B is a great place! I will be happy to return!


Wonderful Stay !

Charlene & Eric are perfect hosts. Delicious breakfast, beautifully decorated & clean rooms throughout the inn. Already booked for another stay - bringing 9 friends with me - can't wait to go back again.


Quick get away

Lovely, thoughtful innkeepers, superb breakfast, great location


Hartwell House is Home Away from Home (with better breakfasts)

5 on November 14, 2014

We've just returned from our 4th stay at HH. Its location is perfect--close enough to everything in Ogunquit, yet still private. Eric and Charlene are wonderful innkeepers, warm and inviting, fun to talk to. We won't stay anywhere else anymore--and that's after decades of visiting the area.


What a nice surprise!

My wife and I have stayed in Ogunquit a couple of other times and this was our first time at the Hartwell House. The entire place was impeccably clean and wonderfully decorated. The innkeepers took outstanding care of us and eagerly accommodated a late-breaking special request. I can't say enough good things.


Personal welcome to our stay!

Fred, Charlene, & Eric, were absolutely charming, warm, & caring! They made us feel very special as guests. Immaculately clean, decor is old world as though you were in a European castle or residence. Pumpkin brandy, afternoon tea, homemade treats, breakfast specials, all done tastefully and delicious! Thank you to all for a memorable time. Lena Ponte & daughter Debbie


What a treasure!

My husband and I needed an overnight stay while we went to the Ogunquit Playhouse and traveled 3 hours from our home. The reviews were great for Hartwell House. I quite agree. The staff and owners were awesome; professional, helpful, welcoming. The room was fluffed with brocade! Bed was so comfy and QUIET! It had everything we needed for a peaceful night's sleep. And breakfast was to die for! My husband does not like B&B's, but he loved Hartwell House. We had our own dining space and each of us gorged on pumpkin pancakes w/ sunflower seeds, walnuts, whipped maple syrup and homemade pumpkin ice cream and my husband had a 3 cheese omelet, all w/ high-quality applewood smoked bacon. Definitely was OUTSTANDING! We'll return!
