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 offered by a larger hotel, 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.

Spa services excellent and very reasonably priced. Everyone at the Inn treats you as if they know you. Wonderful place for a respite away from everything. You never have to leave if you don’t want to given there is a lounge and restaurant within the Inn.

Everything about the Inn by the Sea was remarkable. The location was perfect and absolutely breathtaking. Eating a delicious meal while overlooking the ocean was one of the many things we enjoyed. We chose a Spa Room which was artfully designed and decorated. It was comfortable yet luxurious. The spa was fantastic. The hotel staff was professional, cordial and attentive!

Inn by the Sea stays are always a treat for my wife and I and our two pups. Love everything about this resort. Top notch staff, welcoming customer service, earmarked pet friendly rooms, spacious accommodations, acess to the beach and trails to walk the dogs, high quality bathrooms that are extra large, excellent food and beverage options, and an exceptional spa which we have utilized on previous visits, but we're too over-programmed to book an appointment on this visit.

We love coming back here every chance we get. The rooms, food, and staff are exceptional. The beach is a quick walk away if you like those long walks at the shore. There are many nice restaurants close by and the Inn's front desk is very helpful in recommending one for you. Don't miss this place!

Awesomely dog-friendly. These people bend over backwards to ensure a lovely stay. Everyone who works here is genuinely concerned about your well being. The spa is incredible, and the restaurant is fabulous!
