Been to the Ocean House many times since they opened in 2010. This recent stay was very unpleasant solely because of the arrogant and condescending front desk. We know that check-in is 4 pm and we know that we arrived early. Got it. However, in the past, when we have arrived early they ALWAYS made every effort to get us...

We were there this past weekend to celebrate our 18 years anniversary! It was as beautiful as we have expected! The room was impeccable (#404) with a gorgeous tub, beautiful shower, great bed & bedding!!! Everything in the room was wonderful and I am generally very picky!!! I appreciated how quiet the room was and my daughter loved Madeline's book....

For New England ocean front, this place is tough to beat. The rooms and bathrooms are top notch. The dining room is a bit stuffy... I prefer to sit outside in the summer. The views and beach are the best around.. and Taylor Swift has a house next door.

Our weekend at The Ocean House was truly spectacular! From the second we walked in, we could tell the service was unlike any other hotel we had been to. We were kindly welcomed at reception with champagne (as we were celebrating our engagement) and Cole generously escorted us up to our room and gave us some information about the property....

We stumbled upon this place and planned to go in December..with work and life getting in the way we moved our trip to March. Pulling up the sheer beauty and size of this property left us in awe. It is exquisite, and that is just from the outside..in March..even when the grass is dead. Stepping inside it was breathtaking; every...

Dear ashleyhrln, I’m so pleased your first visit to Ocean House left you wanting to return! We believe small details make the stay extra special, and I’m happy you enjoyed the macaroons and monogramed pillow. Although Ocean House is a relaxing getaway in the cooler months, I’m confident you’ll enjoy our warm weather activities and private white-sand beach. I do...

Way overpriced for offseason, restaurant made my wife and I sick, phone ringing in next room kept us awake at night, fell short of our high expectations. We have stayed at many other properties in this price range that are much better.
