In the midst of winter, we headed even further north to Ogunquit, Maine for the weekend. With beautiful coastal views, we checked into the Cliff House Maine for a very, very chilly evening. This resort takes luxury to the edge, quite literally. Located oceanfront on the cliffs of southern Maine, it is about an hour drive from Boston. With temperatures in the teens, we found the fireplace area to be a wonderful and warm spot to unwind and have a drink.
The lobby areas are well-designed, modern and welcoming. Upon check-in you will be quickly drawn in by the views. With floor to ceiling windows in the lobby, restaurants and lounge, the panoramic views will take your breath away.
During our stay, we had the pleasure of dining at The Tiller Restaurant, located inside the resort. It was Maine Restaurant week where the menu featured a curated three-course dinner. We started with the white bean soup and glasses of wine. Followed by that, I had the polenta and he had the steak. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. And to finish, an ice cream sandwich to top things off.
We awoke Sunday morning fully rested after a great nights sleep. Despite the freezing temperatures, I couldn't resist enjoying the oceanfront views from the balcony as I sipped on my morning coffee. Upon check-out, we wanted to explore the Cape Neddick area further, so we headed to The Wild Blueberry for breakfast. When in Maine, one must enjoy the blueberry mimosa and Belgian waffle, and that is exactly what I did.
