BREAKFAST

Breakfast is a special time when our guests gather in the morning to enjoy a sumptuous, cooked to order gourmet breakfast. We offer private seating in our sunlit dining areas.  Start your day with one of three choices on a menu featuring Eric’s creative sweet and savory dishes that change daily.  All baked goods, muffins and sweets are prepared on site – Charlene’s “made-from-scratch” Cinnamon Buns with cream cheese frosting are not to be missed! Guests rave about our Homemade Baked French Toast with Maine Maple Syrup. Blueberry “Sundae” Pancakes with freshly whipped cream and homemade blueberry ice cream are an in-house favorite. The fluffy omelets (served with apple-wood smoked bacon and fresh bread from “When Pigs Fly” bakery in Kittery) are the best in town!

AFTERNOON TEA SERVICE

For your enjoyment, we serve quality herbal teas, freshly baked sweets, crackers, cheese and fresh fruit from 3:00pm-4:00pm daily – a welcomed snack to tide you over until dinner at one of Ogunquit’s fine restaurants…and there are many! The Hartwell House staff is always available and happy to provide you with recommendations for dinner and entertainment, directions or just an opportunity to chat. We look forward to having you here!

“Charlene & Eric, I am still thinking everyday about my wonderful visit to the ocean. It felt like a true getaway even though it was only one night. It was also such a pleasure to meet you both. You are a charming team! I so appreciated all your help and getting to know you too! But your welcome and the intimacy of your inn made such a difference! Relaxing at teatime and falling asleep in the garden was just so especially nice. I loved my room with the little deck.  So I am much refreshed with such good memories. I surely will return to Ogunquit. I’ve already talked up the Hartwell House Inn and YOU!  Many thanks again. Be well! ” Warm Regards,  Angelica McLennon
