How to spend a romantic weekend in Ogunquit

This beachside town makes a truly wonderful place for a quiet romantic retreat. Whether you’re looking to spend all your time relaxing outdoors in the fresh ocean air, sampling the great dining options in town or trying out some new activities like paddleboarding, there’s something for every couple. 

While we know things look a little different in Ogunquit this year, one thing is for sure – this quaint, walkable seaside town is still the perfect place to relax and refresh. 

Spend an afternoon poolside

Lose track of time while floating in the pool on site at The Colonial Inn or getting engrossed in a good book while sitting in the sunshine. 

Stay in the perfect spot

You’ll want somewhere centrally located as your homebase. The Colonial Inn is Ogunquit’s last grand hotel and is located just minutes from town and the beach. Once you park your car you won’t need it for the remainder of your trip. 

Relax into exceptionally comfortable beds and immaculately clean rooms and enjoy classic nautical decor and modern comfort. 

Feel the sand between your toes

The beach is just a few minutes’ walk from The Colonial Inn and we’re sure some time spent with the sand between your toes and some fresh ocean air is just the thing to help you feel relaxed and refreshed. 

Ogunquit Beach ranks as one of the prettiest 3.5 miles of beach in the country and is on the list of Top 25 Beaches in the US on TripAdvisor.

Explore this quaint seaside town

The town of Ogunquit is perfect for walking and wandering. Shop in cute little boutiques, grab ice cream and sit outside or pack a small picnic and watch the ocean for a while. 

Eat freshly caught seafood at a local favorite

Ogunquit has no shortage of lobster shacks, fine dining restaurants and everything in between to help you get your seafood fix. Many restaurants are now open for outdoor dining and the front desk team at The Colonial Inn can provide recommendations or assist with reservations during your stay.

Walk along Marginal Way

Marginal Way is one of New England’s most beloved coastal walks. The mile-long pathway connects Ogunquit to Perkins Cove and hugs the beautiful Atlantic coastline. Whether you’re up early to see the sunset, making the most of the sunshine or watching the moon rise, the views provided along this pathway are not to be missed.

Relax with a wine in hand on the porch

Don’t forget to grab a drink from the bar in the lobby at The Colonial Inn and spend time on the extended wrap-around porch breathing in the fresh ocean air. 

This postcard-perfect place is a quiet and luxurious spot for your next romantic getaway.
