The Suites

Overlooking the ocean, the Inn by the Sea is the perfect place to unwind. Accommodation choices at the property are varied. You can stay in the Main Inn, or for more space, choose one of the new Cove or larger Beach Suites. Created for vacationing with family and friends in mind, these suites have ample space to entertain and gather. There are full kitchens, large living spaces and gorgeous ocean views from the private balconies. The chic modern coastal design is intended to make guests feel like the suites are a true home away from home. All of the accommodations at the Inn by the Sea are fully air-conditioned, and select suites are pet-friendly.

I recently checked into a two-bedroom Cove Suite for the weekend. These are the top five reasons I think you should book one of their suites for your next stay at the Inn by the Sea.

1. The Living Space

Inspired by the coastal setting, the sizable living space is tastefully furnished with seaside decor, comfortable seating, and hardwood floors. The couch pulls out; there is a large flat-screen television and a gas-burning fireplace as well.

2. The Kitchen

The kitchen is furnished with a full-sized refrigerator, two burner stove top, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and sink. The dining space comfortably seats four with additional stools under the counter space. You could easily make your own meals or host a small gathering in this space.

3. The Bedrooms

The two-bedroom suite has a master bedroom with a king-sized bed and seating for two. The second bedroom has two queens. I love the pops of color in the decor. Especially the navy blue cotton blankets at the foot of the bed. They are perfect for an afternoon nap.

4. The Bathroom

I always appreciate a good hotel bathroom, and the Inn by the Sea never disappoints. The polished bathroom space has dual marble top sinks, a lot of under-counter storage space, an oversized soaking tub, and a separate shower. There is ample room for everyone.

5. The Porch

Each of the cove suites has outdoor patios or deck spaces that offer views of Cresent Beach. With nature all around you, this is the perfect spot for your morning coffee or a place to unwind at the end of the day with a glass of wine. Although the Sea Glass Restaurant has a deck with its own oceanfront views, I suggest having room service delivered to enjoy in your own alfresco dining space.

One of the Best Hotels In Maine

The serene setting of this luxurious hotel always leaves me feeling rejuvenated. Maybe that has something to do with their amazing spa treatments, the fabulous food, or the scenic coastal views. Whichever it is, I know breathe easier whenever I am here. For that reason, if you are looking to stay in one of the best hotels in Maine, I highly recommend the Inn by the Sea.
