This classic inn embraces the breathtaking beauty of the Atlantic coastline.
Inn by the Sea is Maine’s go-to spot for a luxury experience on the beach. This 61-room hotel is set along three-and-a-half miles of beach and combines understated elegance with eco-friendly amenities, such as bamboo towels, a pool heated with solar panels, recycled paper key cards and recycled sheet rock.
The guest rooms come with cozy bathrobes, iPod docks, flat-screen TVs and walk-in showers. Garden suites add pull-out sofas, microwaves and mini-fridges, and cottages feature beachy residential style and all the amenities needed for a self-catering stay. Under the direction of executive chef Andrew Chadwick, the inn’s restaurant, Sea Glass, serves up fresh, sustainable seafood, meat and poultry. A private dining room can accommodate up to 20 guests for a chef's tasting menu. The small, appealing spa offers treatments featuring marine-based products.
