When it comes to nurturing the environment, this charming beach hotel is proof that great things come in small packages. With just 61 guest rooms, suites and cottages, this beachfront inn is all about preserving Planet Earth. The chef at the house restaurant, Sea Glass, works with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute to provide the menu's sustainable seafood, while the walls at the LEED-certified spa have been constructed from recycled sheet rock. Cleaning products are Green Seal-approved, amenities come in recycled packaging, the pool is heated with solar panels and the inn itself is heated with biofuel. Certified by the National Wildlife Foundation, the inn's surrounding indigenous environment provides a natural habitat for local wildlife.
