My fiance and I stayed here recently on our way up to Friendship Maine for a wedding. We came from the West Coast so we wanted to find a nice relaxing place before we made our trek, 2 hours north. The Inn by the Sea was absolutely beautiful. Because of the time of year, it was not very crowded and seemed really low key. I loved that they had events on the lawn at different points of the day (i.e croquet, yoga, bocce ball). The room was spotless and amazing. I travel a bunch for work, so I am used to Hilton type hotels where they all look the same and feel impersonal. The Inn goes out of their way to make you feel important, and to show their appreciation. In the time that we were there, we received several treats that were presented to us by housekeeping (which was great because we were starving). We really enjoyed sitting out on the terrace and looking at the ocean. The location to the Old Port is great (just 10 minutes or so) so we went into town for dinner and shopping. I highly recommend Vingnola (sp?) It's on the side of an alley, but it was sooo tasty!
I would absolutely return anytime to this hotel - It was gorgeous and well worth the price paid to stay there. The staff is wonderful and provided useful information for sight seeing nearby!More
