Inn by the Sea in Cape Elizabeth, Maine

Up in the far reaches of New England is an inn that embraces an understated elegance in the breathtaking state of Maine. Inn by the Sea – part of the LVX collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts – has emerged as one of Maine's premier luxury seaside retreats, and has been granted the prestigious AAA Four-Diamond Award. With just 57 rooms, suites and classic cottages, guests are guaranteed attentive service and an experience that promises to exceed expectations. Located in Cape Elizabeth, less than 10 miles from Portland, the inn has managed to redefine coastal luxury with its sophisticated palette of deep red, cognac and charcoal hues, coupled with maple furnishings and local artwork that graces public and private spaces. A private boardwalk leads onto the soothing shores of Crescent Beach, crossing through a sweeping wildlife sanctuary along the way.

With such intimate surroundings you might not expect full-service amenities that a larger hotel offers—but rest assured, Inn By the Sea is both full-service and fabulous. Classic New England fare is served at Sea Glass, the exceptional all-day dining restaurant. You will discover not only fresh local ingredients and seafood selections pulled from local waters, but you will also savor the spectacular ocean views from inside the dining room or on the al fresco deck. The inn also offers some two-bedroom cottages replete with full kitchens for your gourmet comfort and convenience. The serene spa features a half-dozen treatment rooms, plus separate men's and women's sanctuaries to retreat to before and after you have been pampered by a skilled therapist. Coastal Maine also offers a wealth of windswept recreation, including lobster boat cruises, kayaking, lighthouse tours and even hot-air balloon adventures. After a day of exploring, return to Inn by the Sea and be lulled to sleep by the sound of gently crashing waves.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Inn by the Sea. Our table offered sweeping views of Crescent Beach state park and the distant Ram Island. We also watched hotel guests converse by the outdoor fire pit and outside deck. We both sipped martinis which were mixed perfectly and were very large. We were offered still or sparkling water. The waiter served us fresh warm multigrain bread with blueberry butter. We ordered a trio of Tuna prepared with different sauces to complement the preparation. I ordered the vegan truffle tamale which was very rich and flavorful. My husband enjoyed the chicken which was pounded seasoned perfectly and served with wild rice. We ended the meal with a coconut cream brûlée. The meal was perfect, the service courteous and the location breathtaking. We are locals to the area and will return again.

Traveled to the Inn for our annual spa weekend with another couple. Each year a different resort is visited. Rooms were adequate. Upon arrival, late afternoon snack consisted of Caesar salad, chowder, chicken salad wrap. Nothing special. Dinner in Sea Glass featured no salad options but fortunately, the chef acquiesced. Entree size small. 2nd cocktail was ordered during meal but not received until coffee and dessert. Breakfast: husband order lox, cream cheese and everything bagel. Server returned stating salmon not available. Husband requested cream cream and everything bagel. Husband received plain bagel and cream cheese. Wine by the glass list good. Spa adequate but not as exceptional as billed. Have stayed at other resorts in area offering like services and had a much better dining, accommodation and spa experience. For $500 a night, I expect better.

We recently stayed here for a mother daughter weekend and had a fabulous time. The Inn is set beautifully on Crescent Beach, with raised walkways for easy, eco friendly enjoyment of the beach. The rooms were bright and well appointed. The bathrooms luxurious with large and absorbent towels and high end bath products. Windows open to allow fresh sea air in the guest rooms. The restaurant is superb, with a creative chef and delicious menu items (the lobster tacos were particularly amazing). We wished we had included our dog on this trip as this Inn takes dog friendly to a whole new level. We did not visit the spa though there is one and appears to be full service from a review of the menu of services. I would highly recommend this Inn to all and particularly any one traveling with a dog.

The property is beautiful and it is very dog friendly. Note that if you opt for one of the garden level rooms so you can easily bring your dog outside, the tradeoff is that the bedroom is underneath the main hallway that other guests will use to walk to their room -- and so you will be hearing people walking on top of you while sleeping (the sound proofing is non-existent). The price is at the very high end, which would be fine were it not for the marching on top of the bedroom.

Last week was our 5th trip to the Inn by the Sea, and the 4th with our dogs and the experience just gets better and better. From the personalized attention at check in to the dog towels, bowls, beds, and poop bags provided with our room, our four legged family members felt very welcomed and so did we! The dog treats at turn down were a wonderful touch and my two looked forward to them every night. I also personally loved the chocolate chip cookies. This year, there was an addition of nice new hose and spray nozzle for washing the dogs off after they swam in the ocean - it was much appreciated. The staff at the hotel was exceptional. We ate at the Sea Glass twice for dinner with the dogs and had a great experience. We also utilized the pool, and the beach service. The pool was clean and warm! Our room was always cleaned and the front desk was incredibly responsive to any questions or requests. My sister and her family joined us at the end of the week and stayed in one of the new Cove Suites and it was just incredibly well done. The room was so nicely decorated and appointed. It was perfect for a family of 4 plus a grandparent and a 130lb dog! We can't wait to visit again in 2018!
