Beaches
Cliff House is the perfect base from which you can explore the incredible area of the southern Maine seacoast. The area offers access to some of the best beaches in the country.
 Beaches in York, Wells, and Ogunquit allow for endless options of where you choose to spend your day at the beach. The Ogunquit beach can be reached easily using the resort’s complimentary shuttle. 

Nature
Maine is known not just for its beaches, but also for its wildlife. Cliff House is within proximity to the
 Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge located in the nearby town of Wells. This refuge is one of the nation’s largest and most beautiful natural preserves that is home to native Maine wildlife and habitats. Mount Agamenticus is a small mountain located within twenty minutes of the resort and is a popular local hiking spot full of wildlife and vast ocean views. View the trail map.

Shopping:

Cliff House is a place to enjoy fabulous shopping experiences. In addition to our own shops within the resort’s Cliffscape building, there are lovely boutiques and gift shops in neighboring Ogunquit. Nearby Kennebunkport, a popular visitor destination, is well known for its diverse array of shops, as well as many highly-regarded boutiques. Within a forty-minute drive, Portland presents local clothing designers, artisanal food purveyors, and nationally recognized galleries. The outlet malls of Kittery are just twenty minutes away and offer a broad selection of many major brands. More intrepid shoppers might even consider a trip to the legendary shops of Freeport, located an hour's drive farther north, but well worth the trip.
