Make no mistake, Maine is a beautiful hidden gem of a state. Romantic destinations in Maine not only should be at the top of your list of locations, they should be a must do trip.
Romantic Destinations in Maine
Maine holds many romantic and entertaining things for couples to do. From strolling the beaches along areas like Kennebunkport (nestled against the Atlantic Ocean) to shopping in spots like the outlet malls of Kittery, Maine has something for everyone to do. The forests and mountains of the state are also great for couples and other vacationers who enjoy hiking, skiing and other outdoor events. The beauty of New England has made it a prized destination for vacations since the 1800's, and the many romantic destinations in Maine are even more popular now than they were in the past.
One of the best spots for romantic destinations in Maine is the Captain Lord Mansion, a bed and breakfast establishment located in Kennebunkport, Maine. This bed and breakfast is ranked highly, among the top 100 inns in the Conde Nast Traveler magazine. Perfectly decorated to take advantage of the setting of this antique mansion, the Captain Lord Mansion has long been a destination for travelers looking to relax or enjoy each other's romantic company. There are many different rooms available to choose from, with the majority of guestrooms located in the Captain Lord Mansion, but some others also are housed in the Captain's Garden House.
The Captain Lord Mansion offers guests many amenities, such as wireless Internet, gas powered fireplaces, fresh plants and flowers, complimentary non-alcoholic beverages, and down bedding. The special romance packages available at the inn also add to the perfect atmosphere of the inn, with such additions as gourmet chocolates, sparkling cider and available Jacuzzi tubs. During the “Serenity Season” (which is from mid-October to mid-June) horse drawn carriage rides are also available.
If you would rather stay in a different area of the state for your romantic destinations in Maine, this is also possible. The Inn at Bath, located in Bath, Maine, has been featured in numerous publications as a romantic hot spot. With Jacuzzi suites that include fireplaces (the Jacuzzis actually overlook the fireplaces!) and some private entrances, the Inn at Bath is a good place to enjoy a mid-coast Maine vacation.
The next time you think about going somewhere with that special loved one, why not think of the romantic destinations in Maine? The beauty and history of the New England area, along with the hospitality of the small inns and bed and breakfasts located here make Maine a great choice.
