Leafy green trees and low brush frame windswept sands around Inn by the Sea, creating a sublime and rustic ambience that has attracted romantics since 1604, when Captain John Smith named the Cape for Princess Elizabeth.
Today, Inn by the Sea captures all the history of the area, while adding a modern dose of comforting amenities, rooms, and cottages. 57 rooms and cottages to be exact, all featuring warm wood tones, rough hewn fabrics, oversized baths, and high speed Internet. At the Deluxe Beach Cottages, ocean views can be enjoyed from two levels, as well as a full kitchen and dining room.
Families are well catered to here, as are their pets - which stay for free in pet-friendly suites, and are spoiled with a gourmet pet menu. The idle hands of children are kept busy with canoe lessons, nature preserve kayak tours, outdoor swimming in the pool, bocce, badminton, and even the odd marshmallow roast.
Dining at Seaglass harnesses the entirety of Neptune's kingdom, serving fresh local seafood and produce. If you're one for a steaming pan of mussels, welcome to heaven on earth.
Wind down with a lazy walk along the beach followed by a spa visit. Casco Bay stone massage, aromatherapy, and the Men's Maritime facial are just a few of the renewing treatments on offer.
If all this doesn’t have you at peace yet, consider that Inn by the Sea is also committed to environmental responsibility, with a list of green features and innovations longer than their dinner and spa menus combined.
