Camden Harbour Inn
Perched on a hilltop overlooking the harbor in Camden, this elegant white clapboard inn boasts enviable views: Each of its 20 rooms and suites looks onto the water. But the nearly 150-year-old property doesn’t just coast on its location. As one of two Relais & Châteaux properties in Maine, it’s also undeniably luxe. Lavish amenities include private saunas, iPads, and Bose sound systems in two of its suites. A welcome glass of prosecco awaits all guests upon arrival, and in the morning, you can expect a complimentary champagne breakfast, with ooh la la options like lobster-topped eggs Benedict. (The pampering doesn’t need to end there, either: The inn’s spa offers treatments such as hot stone massage using warm Maine coast stones.) Natalie’s, its 57-seat restaurant, serves modern interpretations of New England cuisine, including, when in season, a four-course lobster tasting menu that might feature lobster bisque accented with black cardamom.
