My husband and I have just returned from a 4 day/3 night stay at the Terrace, and it was absolutely perfect for the second year in a row! Even the rain that we had for the first couple of days did not put a real damper on things! We stayed in one of the hotel style rooms right at the water's edge - perfect for sitting out on the balcony and just taking in the changing tide. Sitting on the front wrap-around porch in the mornings having breakfast remains a favorite with us - even though you are dining with other guests, you still have your privacy. Breakfast is fine for us - cereals, fresh fruit, juices, bagels, etc. Our room was spotless the entire time we were there as well.

The location of the Terrace is the Best - close to town, the Marginal Way, Perkins Cove...... Had dinner at the Maine Diner - excellent as always. Also ate at the Oarwood in Perkins Cove which provided a nice view of the water. Didn't make it to Amore for breakfast as they were closed on Wednesday and Thursday unfortunately. The Egg and I was excellent (blueberry french toast was out of this world).

We tried to book the Terrace for their Christmas By The Sea event in December, but unfortunately, they are completely booked. We will return!!!

I am finally writing this review after my experiences at the Terrace by the Sea at the end of October. I was married in Ogunquit (at Clay Hill Farms restaurant), and we arranged for the majority of our guests to stay at the Terrace by the Sea. The people who work here are without exception the nicest you will ever run across! They really made all my guests feel welcome, and were helpful when I was looking for resources in the town for various wedding events. There was a great variety in the prices and types of rooms so I could accomodate almost all of my guests at their preferred price range and style of room. The rooms are not particularly fancy, but they are clean and neat, and the breakfast is a very nice continental style one (plenty of choice of bagels, cereal, fresh fruit, yogurt, hot cereal). I particularly enjoyed staying in the room with the fireplace in the main building, as it had it's own enclosed porch, which worked out great as a staging ground for wedding-related stuff, and was nicely romantic for our wedding night. If you're looking for a spot for a family reunion or larger group, this place is wonderful. I really can't say enough nice things about how much nicer they made the whole weekend.

Sometimes staying at these privately owned places can be a gamble as to quality and cleanliness, but my husband and I were thrilled to find that Terrace by the Sea was perfect! The rooms were older, but very clean and comfortable. The location can not be beat. We were in easy walking distance of everything. The best part of our stay was enjoying our breakfast on the front porch, while watching the tide go out. Our room did not have an ocean view, but this did not matter as there are plenty of chairs on the front lawn to enjoy the view. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We felt right at home and wish our stay could have lasted longer! We will be back to Ogunquit, and will certainly be staying at Terrace again!

What a great find. We didn't get in the car once the entire weekend. It is directly in the center of town and yet very secluded, tucked away and quiet. No traffic from Shore Road. The room was large, the bed comfortable and the staff were lovely. The continental breakfast was nice, the fruit was fresh and the juice was great. It was next to the footbridge to the beach and a hop, skip & jump to Marginal Way. Could not have found a better place. Thanks Trip Advisor!
