This privately held resort sits north of Portland, Maine, on the Popham Peninsula. Rooms in the Main Lodge overlook the gardens. The 1945 Lighthouse has 10 rooms with views of Casco Bay.

Play all day: The resort’s Camp Merritt has activities for kids; treatments at the waterfront spa, lobster bakes, kayaking, golf, harbor cruises, and campfires can be arranged.

Explore: Taste authentic Maine fare, and do a little antiquing in the nearby waterfront town of Bath, the “city of ships.”

Family photo op: Pose with the captain aboard the resort’s vintage 1935 motorboat, Ruth.
