    White Barn Inn & Spa, Auberge Resorts Collection
    Kennebunk Beach, ME
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 360 reviewsTripAdvisor (360)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    Situated about a half-mile southwest of Dock Square, the White Barn Inn & Spa serves as a convenient place to hang your hat if you're looking to explore the heart of Kennebunkport. The inn's AAA Five Diamond Award-winning restaurant is one of the most popular establishments downtown, thanks to its upscale iterations of cod, halibut and lobster roll (all fresh daily catches, of course). The inn also offers private cooking classes available for budding culinary artists. Keep in mind that there are several accommodation choices to pick from: The Main House, the garden and the waterfront cottages. Recent guests especially appreciate the extra perks found in each guest room, like marble bathrooms with heated floors and whirlpool tubs and walk-in rainfall showers. Visitors also appreciate the accommodating staff and the surprisingly quiet locale on Kennebunkport River.

    Stage Neck Inn
    York, ME
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 466 reviewsTripAdvisor (466)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi
    Perched on a small peninsula that juts into York Harbor in Maine, this boutique inn wins over visitors with its picturesque locale. The Stage Neck Inn's Colonial-style guest rooms boast sea views, and you can watch boats bob in the harbor while enjoying fresh lobster on the Sandpiper's outdoor terrace, or from the other on-site dining venues, Shearwater and Outdoor Terrace. Plus, all accommodations come with coffee makers, minifridges, Wi-Fi access and cozy terrycloth robes, though several recent guests thought the rooms could use an update. The inn also houses two pools (one indoor, one outdoor), a full-service spa and two clay tennis courts. But for many, it's the inn's quality customer service that clinches the deal; several guests highlight the front desk and restaurant staff as particularly friendly.
