Named among the top inns in the US by Travel + Leisure, this oceanside boutique hotel mixes contemporary luxury and beach-house whimsy to create a cozy Maine retreat.

The Destination
Situated on a storied shoreline that has watched boats anchor and sail for five centuries, the seaside town of Kennebunkport is the Maine of American lore. Colonized in the 17th century and still known as a lavish resort town 200 years later, Kennebunkport is a place where pearls are found both in oyster shells and jewelry sets. New and old mansions share an affinity for sweeping architecture and act as a backdrop to the taffy shops and seafood eateries downtown. A three-mile beach of soft, white sand becomes a willing canvas to sandcastles, strolls, and sun-soaked catnaps. In the water, kayakers can paddle toward nearby islands, while bicyclists on shore pedal to connecting villages.

The Digs
Traditional in appearance and modern in conception, The Tides Beach Club builds off the history of Kennebunkport's stately mansions and blends it with the effortless style of a modern beach hideaway. The boutique hotel earned acclaim from Travel + Leisure, which listed it among the top inns and lodges in the continental US. Sunny rooms feature muted, sea-inspired color palettes and offer amenities like flat-screen televisions and Wi-Fi. Turn on the air-conditioning or open the windows to an ocean breeze before sleeping on luxurious Frette linens in your king- or queen-size bed.

The Diversions
Before breakfast, sip coffee in the hotel's reading nook or while sitting in a plush rocking chair on the porch. Then, claim a lounge chair on the beach for the afternoon and arrange for lunch to be delivered there. Claim your kayak or paddleboard rentals and explore the quiet corners of Goose Rock Beach. Later, mosey over to the Tides' sister property, Hidden Pond, for a dip in one of two pools. While you're there, you might want to stop by Tree Spa for an indulgent treat. Return to the Tides after sunset, and wash up in your marble bathroom. Finally, enjoy happy hour drinks before sitting down to a dinner of roasted Maine lobster.
