Newagen Seaside Inn, Boothbay, Maine
The cottages at Newagen fit into what feels like the all-American summer camp for adults. This place knows how to accommodate;
it’s been hosting guests since 1816. Ocean lovers should splurge on Juniper. The three-bedroom cottage at the water’s edge
has a library, dining room, commercial kitchen, and the best sunset views on the property.
Field trip: The front desk will organize chartered windjammer sailboats for a sunset cruise and harbor tour. Pick up a lobster roll and slice of Key lime pie at Phil the Baker’s roadside restaurant.
Night out: The inn’s dining room is tough to beat, but head into town for the summer lobster paella at historic Thistle Inn.
Rates: $1,500–$6,000/week; 800/654-5242 or newagenseasideinn.com
