Cape Arundel Inn and Resort
Overlooking the Atlantic on Kennebunkport’s prestigious Ocean Avenue, this 19th-century mansion is the epitome of coastal chic. Some guest rooms and suites boast bay windows and sweeping ocean views, while others feature fireplaces and balconies. Up the ante (and privacy) a touch more by booking the resort’s three-bedroom Ivy Cottage. The inn hosts live music outdoors each Wednesday in summer and has soft throws for lounging on the hotel porch come winter.
