Best Places To Stay in Maine
Headed to the coastal towns of Maine and wondering where to stay? In this post, I’ve outlined the best places to stay in Maine. I’ve compiled this list from personal experiences and recommendations I’ve personally received. Enjoy!
Where to stay in Portland, Maine:
The Francis, a brand new hotel, will be opening in September + we can’t wait to go stay! It’s a meticulously restored Portland landmark, reborn as a beautiful hotel, with all the modern-day amenities. Located in the West End of Portland, Maine, The Francis will feature 15 guest rooms, a distinctive restaurant and bar and a spa. I will share more once I’ve personally experienced this place + it’s open for business.
Where to stay in Midcoast Maine – Rockland, Rockport + Camden, Maine:
If you’ve read my writing before, you know I am allll about the details! I notice little things and absolutely love when an experience is unique down to the details.
Staying at 250 Main Hotel was exactly that! This modern, trendy hotel didn’t leave anything out in their renovation. The room keys, little notepads, bathroom tile, modern furniture and of course the WAVE WALLPAPER!
Everything about this place was darling, inviting + comfortable. My favorite part of our room was our balcony, although their robes + cozy bed was hard to beat!
We loved that they offered a happy hour on their roof — oh the views! — + delightful, intriguing breakfast in the morning.
Right on the Camden harbor, this gem of a hotel has my heart! A recently renovated property that has so much old charm. The room we stayed in was a suite with a king size plush bed, a fireplace, living room, balcony + tub fit for a queen.
The Camden harbor is one of the most special places in Maine, if not the whole US. It’s out of a post card. So to have the opportunity to stay right on this historic harbor is fantastic! Imagine: sipping your coffee on the balcony – watching the sailboats gliding in and out. Such a dream!
Since we typically stay with family or rent an apartment for the summer if we’re there for an extended time, I’ve only had the pleasure of staying at the two properties above.
Although, I’ve heard wonderful things about the properties below as well:
The Samoset is a forever favorite of mine! Aaron’s parents used to live a stone’s throw from this resort. Their property is gorgeous + luxurious! As you can see from the beautiful video on the homepage of their website, there are breathtaking views from the property and you can access the amazing Rockland Breakwater.
Just watching the video has me yearning for that dreamy coastline!
Whitehall, one of Lark Hotels‘ properties, is a gorgeous inn right in Camden. This beautiful hotel is perfect New England architecture which just underwent a renovation. I’ve heard amazing things about their restaurant, Pig and Poet as well.
A fellow blogger, Jess, wrote a lovely piece about her experience there last fall. You can read that here.
Where to stay in Kennebunkport, Maine:
