Top 10 Coastal Maine Inns and B&Bs: Inn at Ocean’s Edge
You’ll find plenty of admirable choices on our Top 10 Coastal Maine Inn and Bed and Breakfasts list, but for a true New England experience at the water’s edge, the aptly-named Inn at Ocean’s Edge is our hands-down selection!
For once, we don’t even care if you doubt our judgment – that would only mean more room for us at this delightful Maine inn, after all. In fact, we’ve got half a mind to forsake this entire Top 10 list in favor of time better spent lounging in the sparkling infinity-edge pool, strolling the vast blooming gardens or indulging in a second helping at the Inn at Ocean’s Edge’s award-winning restaurant.
But we’ll take pity on your poor seafaring soul and let you in on this coastal Maine inn’s best-kept secret: a scrumptious breakfast buffet overlooking Penobscot Bay. Lobster boats cruise past, loaded down with their morning catch – soon to be your dinner – as they take their place in the peaceful harbor. Over on Lincolnville Beach, tiny toddlers with shovel and pail in hand leave their mark on the soft golden sands. And across the bay, Islesboro beckons with a full day of shopping, wine tasting and exploration on its rocky shores!
