The Team & History
For nearly a hundred years, the Blue Shutters Inn has been a center of hospitality on Beachmere Place inviting guests all year round.
The Blue Shutters Inn is family owned and operated. Purchased in August of 2015 from the longtime owner,
we aim to create an environment where you truly feel welcomed and at home during your stay.
Marginal Way History
Step out of our inn's backyard onto a path to an amazing one and a quarter mile
paved coastline trail from Perkins Cove to Ogunquit Beach.
The footpath is a gentle easy stroll alongside an awe-inspiring seaside vista with benches along the way to linger and enjoy the view.
Josiah Chase Jr., a Civil War Veteran, conservationist and former state legislator,
bought a twenty-acre strip of land from Perkins Cove to Israel Head.
Three years before his death, at age 88, Chase donated a one-mile strip to the town of Ogunquit in 1925.
Years later other seaside Ogunquit landowners also generously donated land extending
Marginal Way's length with an additional quarter of a mile dedicated to the public's enjoyment.
