QUICK TRIP TO MAINE
Five ways to feel merry and bright in Ogunquit.
1 CLIFF HOUSE
This sprawling 70-acre property has presided over the rocky oceanfront of southern Maine since 1872, when it catered to rail travellers from the northeastern seaboard. Striking a balance between craggy and cozy, the all-season resort’s new suites feature wraparound balconies that put the windswept horizon at eye level. To combat the chill, pull on a plaid bathrobe, snuggle up in comforters from local company Cuddledown or gather in front of the fireplace in the festive lower lobby with its towering Christmas tree. After tucking into the Tiller’s excellent lobster rolls, smoked salmon and mussels, the steaming outdoor hot tub is the perfect place to contemplate the starry winter sky.
