Winter Activities in Ogunquit, ME  

If you’d like a taste of just how beautiful our Beautiful Place by the Sea is in its wintertime phase, just take a gander at this recent writeup by Cathryn McCann in New England Today.

The article spotlights Mark Fleming’s fine photos of a snow-frosted Ogunquit, Maine: from the fishing boats in the cozy harbor to the ravishing white seacoast that backdrops the Marginal Way.

You know what’s even better than browsing through lovely pictures of Ogunquit in winter? Well, visiting Ogunquit in winter, of course! And with accommodations at one of our hotels, you’ll be immersed right in the heart of the seasonal scenery while enjoying the best in Southern Maine hospitality.

The Marginal Way

As Fleming’s photos well attest, Ogunquit’s famous public footpath, the Marginal Way, is just as wonderful in the heart of winter as in the warm embrace of summer. The paved walkway and its plentiful benches put the splendor of the Gulf of Maine front and center: Watch a winter sunrise over the ocean, admire the crash of surf against icy rocks.

The Marginal Way connects Perkins Cove and Ogunquit Beach, and the latter—the center of activity in summer—has plenty of quiet, bundled-up charm this time of year, too.

Winter Recreation Near Ogunquit

As we recently spotlighted here at the blog, our hotels also make excellent springboards for taking part in winter outdoor recreation in our lovely region. Take to the downhill slopes of Powderhouse Hill, ski the trails of Harris Farm, or snowshoe your way through the woods of Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region or the Wells Estuarine Reserve, which also offers guided winter treks.

The Coziness of Town

Whether you’ve spent the day skiing or snowshoeing the Southern Maine countryside or you’ve happily been dawdling down the Marginal Way or Ogunquit Beach, it’s magical to come in for a warm-up at a restaurant or wine bar in town—or, of course, your hotel waiting to welcome you back.

And for properly fueling your near-and-far winter adventures, look no further than our own Rasperri’s eatery in the Gorges Grant Hotel: one of the best breakfast joints in all of Ogunquit!
