INN BY THE SEA
Located within Crescent Beach State Park, one of Maine's finest sand beaches, is the Inn by the Sea. The award winning architecture of the Inn is reminiscent of the Cottage Shingled design of the 1890s. Surrounded by lush green lawns and ever-blooming perennials, the main house offers 25 one bedroom suites and the adjacent cottages offer 18 two bedroom suites--each with full kitchen, living/dining areas and patio or porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Guest rooms in the main house are furnished with Chippendale cherry and floral chintz fabrics, while the cottages are furnished with natural wicker and simple white pine pieces; all are accented with original art. A unique collection of hand colored engravings by John J. Audubon are on display throughout the dining room and lobby area.
Indulge your senses and enjoy a gourmet dining experience in the romantic and intimate atmosphere of the Audubon Room. The menu offers new American regional cuisine with contemporary French overtones. There is always a variety of menu selections, offering only the freshest and finest of Maine's local gardens, fields and orchards. Native hand-picked seafood specialties provide the perfect compliment to the most impressive wine selections. Some house favorites include Grilled Salmon with an Orange Basil Vinaigrette, Wild Mushroom Risotto, Sauteed Oysters with Porcini Mushrooms, and for dessert, Chocolate Marquis with Cappuccino Hazelnut Cream. Breakfast and dinner are served daily. During the summer, lunch and poolside service are available. The outdoor terrace is also open during the warmer months for evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
A private boardwalk, leading through a beautiful natural estuary to the white sandy shore of Crescent Beach, is the highlight of many amenities offered by the Inn such as, bicycles, tennis, outdoor pool, croquet field and shuffleboard. Sailing and excursion tours are available at the nearby Portland waterfront as well as an eclectic array of shops and restaurants in the Old Port district.
