Maine's natural beauty has inspired everyone from Winslow Homer to Stephen King. During the summer, tourists flock to the rugged, lighthouse-dotted coastline made up of sharp rock cliffs and sandy beaches with striking views of offshore islands. Campers and hikers flock to Acadia National Park (the only National Park in New England) which has over 47,000 acres of untouched forest, coastline, mountains and lakes. During the winter months, Maine's winter resorts (including Sugarloaf and Sunday River) open for droves skiers and snowboarders.
The Dockside Guest Quarters hotel has large, bright rooms with a lovely (yet basic) seaside-cottage style. Though the decor in each room varies slightly, most rooms feature shades of blues and yellows, stripes and flower prints, and balconies overlooking the sail boat-dotted water.
