Your Guide to The Best Maine Inns Throughout the State

Situated within the natural affluence of Maine’s rocky coast, sandy beaches, lakeside waterfronts, or forests, Maine inns provide the unsurpassed luxury of an intimate stay, less hurried and busy than bigger hotels. Inns are often historic Maine Inn properties beautifully restored and maintained, ship captain homes, for example.

From your Maine Inn, you can enjoy the local culture, meet the innkeeper – who will usually provide tips on things to do and what to see, at nearby wilderness and waterfront areas. At the end of the day after touring Maine, shopping and exploring, you return to your Inn for the warmth and conviviality that the innkeepers and fellow guests offer.

From waterfront inns with ocean views to downtown locations and cozy secluded inns neighboring National Parks, Maine truly has everything to offer on a week long vacation or weekend getaway when you stay Inn side and enjoy outside.

Unlike many large hotels or resorts, Maine Inns are more relaxed and less hurried. The quaint charm of Maine Inns match the warm hospitality that they offer. Similar to the personal services you would receive from a Maine Bed and Breakfast, you can expect attentive and warm service in Maine’s Inns.

Don’t be surprised if the front desk even remembers your name. Many innkeepers personally attend to your needs as well as even offer tips on things to do and places to visit from a local perspective.

Many Maine Inns are historic buildings with generations of hospitality expertise. Often ship captain’s homes on the Maine coast are now gorgeous restorations of the historic homes boasting a timeless treasure as well as the experience of the bygone era.

As many inns offer a more private and tranquil setting, they are often an attractive site for a honeymoon or even a lovely, small intimate wedding ceremony. The innkeeper at Seaside Inn in Kennebunkport can even provide Civil Services as the Justice of Peace for a small beachside wedding.

Maine inns range in size from just a few guest rooms to more than 30, but the hospitality tends to be warm and cordial.

During your search to find lodgings at an inn on your Maine vacation, you’ll discover a range of Maine inns in charming towns and Portland, to seaside inns with ocean views, famed dining and entertainment, spa services, homemade dining, uniquely decorated rooms, direct access to the beach and most commonly, the private and secluded feel you would expect in a state called Vacationland.
