    Amid Maine's Victorian-style bed-and-breakfasts, the Camden Harbour Inn stands apart with its sleek interior furnishings and top-notch amenities (including flat-screen TVs, rainfall showers and in some cases private balconies and gas fireplaces). And that's not all this coastal retreat has to offer: The hotel's award-winning Natalie's restaurant serves up local Maine fare and the tranquil spa offers a wide range of replenishing treatments. Recent guests say this inn sets the bar in excellence – from its exquisite setting to its exceptionally attentive staff. You'll find this Relais & Châteaux retreat just steps from downtown Camden, conveniently located near a small beach, boutique shops and other recreational facilities.

    Balance Rock Inn
    Bar Harbor, ME
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 553 reviewsTripAdvisor (553)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking

    The Balance Rock Inn is quintessential Maine. The hotel sits just steps away from the serene waters of Frenchman's Bay in Bar Harbour, offering panoramic bay views from multiple points in the property. And the idyllic cottage look isn't just for kicks: The Balance Rock Inn previously served as a family summer cottage back in the early 1900s. And when you take a look at your room, you may feel as though you've traveled back in time. Accommodations are classic in decor and bright in color palette, with most rooms featuring white floral patterned wallpaper and intricately carved wood furniture. Guests often describe rooms as cozy and well-appointed, thanks to flat-screen TVs, bathrooms with whirlpool tubs, complimentary in-room bottled water, free Wi-Fi access and furnished decks, among other features. Outside your digs, you'll find an outdoor heated pool, a small fitness center and The Veranda Bar, a favorite among recent visitors, who recommended ordering a drink at the bar and then grabbing a seat next to the outdoor fire pit on the patio (especially at sunset). While the bar was a hit, some said the complimentary breakfast could use some improvement, though the short walk to town (a block away) to other eateries, was a plus for recent lodgers.

    Portland Harbor Hotel
    Portland, ME
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1716 reviewsTripAdvisor (1716)
    Free WiFi

    The Portland Harbor Hotel's unbeatable location and attentive staff received major kudos from recent guests. The property sits in the city's Old Port neighborhood, an area lined with cobblestone streets and 19th-century warehouses. In addition to its charming aesthetics, Old Port is also home to a bevy of restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. If you're in the mood to explore, make use of the hotel's complimentary bicycles – a recommendation from past lodgers. And though you'll be surrounded by plenty of top-notch restaurants, consider dining at the on-site eatery, Eve's at the Garden, which visitors said is a solid choice for happy hour. Reviews for the accommodations were a bit more mixed: Some said their digs were clean and comfortable, while others lamented their small size and recommended booking a room that doesn't overlook the street to avoid disruptive neighborhood noise. Wherever your room is located, you'll find it outfitted with a large soaking tub and glass-enclosed shower, feather pillows and complimentary Wi-Fi access. The Portland Harbor Hotel also offers a small fitness center, complimentary Starbucks coffee on each floor and in the lobby, and complimentary transportation to and from Portland International Jetport and the Amtrak station.

    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.

    The Breakwater Inn & Spa is an ideal retreat for visitors seeking a quiet getaway to Kennebunkport, Maine. This hotel – originally built in the 1880s – showcases the area's serene surroundings from its perch along the Kennebunkport River. (Guests considering a stay here should note that, because of the hotel's older roots, there is no elevator in the inn building, but there is an elevator in the spa building.) Rooms and suites are outfitted in nautical sky blue, rich navy and stark white hues and feature pillow-top beds, and free wireless internet access. Also complimentary: The use of the hotel's bikes. If you'd rather stay on-site, work up a sweat at the fitness studio and follow it up with a treatment like a facial, massage or manicure at the spa. Once you're ready for some food, Stripers Waterside Restaurant serves up savory seafood dishes with sunset views. (Note: The restaurant is open on a limited schedule in the offseason.)

    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.

    Set in a serene area in northern Bar Harbor, the appropriately named The Bayview boasts panoramic views of Frenchman Bay and nearby Acadia National Park.
