Inn by the Sea, Maine’s premier beach destination, offers elegant hospitality in 61 stylish one and two bedroom suites and rooms. Luxury comes naturally at this oceanfront resort located on a mile of unspoiled sand beach with full service SPA, outdoor heated pool and Chef Andrew Chadwick’s captivating cuisine. Guests enjoy Atlantic views, fresh regionally sourced menus and relaxing SPA services inspired by the sea all while being surrounded by the natural beauty of coastal Maine. Inn by the Sea offers the best of both worlds- a relaxing seaside destination yet is just 7 miles from Portland’s urban chic small port city with galleries, unique boutique shopping and water activities.
Inn by the Sea has a modern beach vibe in spacious one and two bedroom suites with full kitchens, dining areas, living rooms with fireplaces and furnished outdoor decks- perfect to entertain a group or enjoy a romantic intimate dinner. Beach suites all enjoy direct ocean views. The large two bedroom Beach suites have cozy indoor/outdoor fireplaces so you can enjoy the panoramic Atlantic views in all season from your deck. Traditional, coastal shingled architecture gives way to upscale modern interiors throughout the Inn. The main house offers guests one bedroom suites on one or two levels, or traditional rooms with ocean views. The luxuriously contemporary Inn offers guests an experience that is pure Maine from the beach to the coastal setting.
