We had a beautiful room on the second level overlooking the water. We could watch the tide go in and out and many shore birds and a few surfers. Friendly staff. Hot drinks available all day in the lobby. Walk right into town for quaint shops and good restaurants. Buffet breakfast featured delicious, varied homemade muffins. Terrific Fall decorations throughout... More

We recently stayed at the Sparhawk Resort and were very pleased. The staff was very friendly and rooms were spotless. We chose an oceanfront room on the lower level and had a wonderful view. We did not partake of the morning buffet, so I cannot speak to that. The location within Ogunquit could not have been more perfect. Our room... More

When we arrived in Ogunquit, the staff was so welcoming and since our room was ready, we were allowed an early check in. Our room was lovely with the illusion of the ocean being right below our feet while sitting on the elevated balcony. The panoramic view of the entire area was gorgeous, plus with the Marginal Way starting right... More

Stayed in an oceanfront room that was very large and very comfortable. Two upholstered chairs in front of a large glass wall gave us the most amazing views of the sea. Continental breakfast in a nice setting as well. Gracious desk clerks at check in and check out. Wish I could have stayed longer.

We stayed in a large oceanfront suite in the Barbara Dean House. We have stayed at Sparhawk in the past but never in this building. It was very comfortable and we enjoyed the porches.

This is our second visit here and will, we hope, not be our last. We love the central location, the grounds are beautiful. Just being on the deck and listening and looking at the water is so relaxing. The view is wonderful.
