It took a pandemic to motivate us to travel to Maine. It’s always been on my list of places to go, and I’m so glad we finally visited. We chose to stay at The Cliff House because it was close (only 3 hours) and the ocean front views were calling my name. The hotel was lovely. The rooms were stylish and very comfortable, and most offer a balcony. I enjoyed my coffee in the morning, and wine at night, while listening to the waves crash below. It was heaven, and just what we all needed. Most mornings I ran outside and headed to Loveshack afterwards for the best iced coffee and smoothies. Our days were spent poolside, and evenings were spent exploring the cute little town of Oguinquit. We dined outside every night. Once at the hotel, once at the ocean front lobster pound Oarweed, and on our last night we went to Nikanos for amazing Mediterranean food. If you go, make sure to check out Goods Oquinquit, the cutest little store with great homewares, books, and accessories.
On our last day we drove to Kennebunkport. I’m already planning my return because a day trip wasn’t nearly enough time. In the short time I was there I did manage to find several cute stores, see list below. We ate on the water at the Boat House which was delicious, stopped at the candy store so the boys could load up (perfect for a road trip), and were on our way back home. I highly recommend visiting the beautiful state of Maine. This was our first visit and will definitely will not be our last.
