The White Barn Inn & Spa

The White Barn Inn & Spa Rating: 4.5 Pearls

This renowned inn is one of the premier luxury options in Maine, and offers a true boutique experience in charming Kennebunk. It is housed in a historic building, and so its 26 rooms vary greatly in size. However, they all feature flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and classic, elegant decor. The much-acclaimed restaurant serves outstanding (and pricey) seasonal cuisine in an 1820s restored barn, and the spa is arguably one of the best in the region. The waterfront cottages are quite a trek from the main building, so make sure you book a guestroom instead if you want to be closer to the property’s great amenities.

The Tides Beach Club

The Tides Beach Club Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Tides Beach Club in Kennebunkport was fully renovated in 2011, and the vibe evolved from cozy to South Beach-esque and trendy. Two suites designed by Jonathan Adler, spectacular ocean views, and a contemporary restaurant with a sophisticated menu are just some of the upgrades that came with the renovation. The prices are a bit more Manhattan than Maine, but if it's beachfront luxury you’re after, this is it -- The Tides sits on a semi-private three-mile stretch of Goose Rocks Beach.

Captain Lord Mansion

Captain Lord Mansion Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Captain Lord Mansion hotel, just an eight-minute walk from the town center, is a small classic inn featuring Victorian-style rooms. Each room's decor varies slightly, but all feature four-poster beds, numerous paintings, and antique-style Victorian furniture -- cozy to some, gaudy to others. Modern amenities such as iPod docks and flat-screen TVs bring the rooms to this century, and the hotel offers tons of freebies including free breakfast, Wi-Fi, and bicycle rentals. The hotel lacks amenities like a fitness center and a pool (though there is a small spa), so families may consider the nearby (but slightly farther from town) Nonantum Resort.

Parsons Post House Inn

Parsons Post House Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Don't let the intimate size of the Parsons Post House Inn fool you: Most of the cozy rooms have a modern look, sporting a subtle beach theme with comfortable white linens and light sand-colored walls. The bathrooms are clean and a little cramped (counter space is practically non-existent), but they do have soft towels and good water pressure. The small but charming outdoor patio is great for taking advantage of the sea breeze coming from the beach, just a block away. If you're looking for a true Ogunquit experience, this is one of your safest bets. Note that the hotel closes during the winter months.

Dockside Guest Quarters

Dockside Guest Quarters Rating: 3.5 Pearls

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. The hotel lacks amenities like a fitness center and a pool, but guests enjoy perks such as free bicycle rentals, free Wi-Fi, and free breakfast in the often-crowded breakfast area.

James Place Inn

James Place Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The intimate James Place Inn offers seven rooms on a quiet street near central Freeport and local shopping. The polished rooms are named for the color on the walls, and some come with fireplaces or soaking tubs. One of the most outstanding features is the free, extensive breakfast made up of homemade items. This family-run inn might be in a historic Victorian home, but it also offers modern amenities such as free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. While nice extras include a peaceful outdoor deck and appealing hammock, some rooms have very small bathrooms and are susceptible to noise.

Maine Stay Inn

Maine Stay Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Maine Stay Inn offers spacious, clean, well-decorated accommodations, both the rooms in the main house and the private cottages. There's a lot of variety in the rooms/cottages, so every traveler and family should be able to find something that works for them (including full kitchens). The big highlight here is the free daily breakfast -- the innkeepers whip up gourmet pancakes, huevos rancheros, fresh fruit, sausage, and a lot more (varies daily). They'll also accommodate special dietary requests (for gluten-free travelers, for example) if you give notice. While kids are welcome at the inn, they cannot stay at main house, nor are they allowed in the dining room during breakfast (staff will deliver breakfast to the cottages in this case).

Stage Neck Inn York Harbor

Stage Neck Inn York Harbor Rating: 3.5 Pearls

Stage Neck Inn has a scenic oceanfront location, right next to York Harbor Beach in the cute town of York. The 58 rooms have simple decor (white bedspreads with green throws; beige walls) and free Wi-Fi; some have old tube TVs . The hotel offers some outstanding features, like access to the sandy beach ; an outdoor freshwater pool with ocean views; an indoor atrium pool which was re-opened in April 2012 after being completely reconstructed; and a fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs. The main restaurant Harbor Porches (which offers excellent ocean views) and the Sandpiper Bar & Grille are both open year-round, while the Outdoor Terrace and pool snack bar are open seasonally. But some guests complain about older furniture, a variety of fees, and minimum stay requirements.

The Breakwater Inn and Spa

The Breakwater Inn and Spa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

The 37-room Breakwater Inn & Spa offers travelers a selection of room choices: traditional, classic inn rooms; secluded, nautical cottages; apartments for longer-staying visitors; and modern, contemporary spa rooms and suites. Its tranquil setting on the water of Kennebunk River makes it a great getaway, but the rooms, while charming, are fairly small, but that's almost to be expected of older inns. Some of the inn's strongest assets are its attention to detail, like afternoon tea, the large Adirondack chairs dotting the shoreline, and homemade, free breakfasts. Like many other Maine inns and hotels, it tends to die down during the winter (even the restaurant is closed), so best to stay here between May and August.

Captain Jefferds Inn

Captain Jefferds Inn Rating: 3.5 Pearls

This historic sea captain's home is now a charming, 15-room inn full of indulgent freebies and modern touches. It's in a quiet, residential area of Kennebunkport, within walking distance of the shops and restaurants downtown. Cozy rooms vary in size, decor, and amenities -- some have fireplaces, soaking tubs, and private entrances -- while all include modern perks such as free Wi-Fi, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs. Free breakfasts here are a gourmet, sit-down affair, and more yummy snacks are available throughout the day, including at afternoon tea. Some couples seeking romance complain about the communal breakfast table, but with a no kids under 10 policy, the inn maintains an intimate and peaceful atmosphere.
