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.

We only stayed one night but wish it was longer. Nice room, great staff, amazing breakfast, great location...this place has it all. We were in Ogunquit to see a show at the Ogunquit Playhouse and this was a perfect location for that, buts lots of other things to do nearby also.

Ogunquit First

We had a one night stay booked on a B&B gift certificate. We have stayed in Kennebunkport and Camden before, but never in Ogunquit. The Hartwell house was a great spot for walking to Perkin's Cove in one direction, and the town center in the other. We stayed in the Polly Reed room and enjoyed the view of the garden from the balcony.. It was very quiet and relaxing. The breakfast in the morning was great. the table in the front watching the people walk by shore rd.was terrific. We'll be back again i the future. Great staff all around

Best Bed and Breakfast in Ogunquit!

Charlene and Eric continue to do an outstanding job taking care of us from checking in to the gourmet breakfasts, the fabulous goodies in the afternoon, makes us feel right at home! We feel so pampered and relaxed here that we have never stayed anywhere else! We highly recommend to everyone that this is the place you want to stay when you come to Ogonquit.

This was our first visit to the Hartwell House Inn but it won't be our last. Very spacious and elegant rooms, great breakfast choices. We enjoyed our visit.

Another great stay!!

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!!

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.
