Fond memories of our stay at the Cliff House resort in Maine brings me to write about our pleasant experience there. Nestled between the Atlantic ocean and the city of Cape Neddick stood the Cliff House Maine in the midst of wild waves and rugged rocks. Encompassed by glass doors and windows on each side, the resort provided significantly beautiful views of the glistening Atlantic ocean. Just the sight of the resort made us fall in love with it and we were all ready to enjoy our stay there.
We reached the resort right at lunch time and enjoyed our order of pickled vegetables and quinoa bowl which was filling and delicious at the same time. The cherry on the top of it was the gorgeous views from the resort restaurant. After our meal, we started to walk on the cliff side exploring the shore side where I picked different kinds of mussel and crab shells to add to my sea treasures. As I walked by the shore making my way through the rugged rocks close to sunset, the level of water was starting to rise with high tides. So it was safer to just get out from the shore and head back towards the resort.
Our room was just perfect with a beautiful ocean view. We were amazed to see the phenomenal sunrise early morning next day right from the double glass doors from our balcony. I could clearly hear the waves crashing into the shore. During breakfast I was so so excited to spot some whale humps in the ocean. Also for the first time in my life I experienced swimming in an infinity pool. It really looked like the pool was infinite and merged into the ocean. We also enjoyed the hot tub right next to the pool both during the night and day time gazing at the stars and the infinite stretch of the ocean. I remember trying to be as present in the moment as I could to make the most out of it. Both good and bad moments are momentary and we must capture the best ones while we can.
After checking out of the hotel, we made our way to the little town of Ogunquit, where I really enjoyed shopping cute tea cups, sea shells, candies and handmade crafts. I loved the whole experience of it and enjoyed being all touristy. We also stopped by to check out the Nubble light house which was a historical little light house in the end of the city. Overall I loved the experience of being so close to nature at all times and would love to return to New England sometime soon again. What’s your favorite resort experience. Do share. I would love to read.
