If Persephone—whose statue graces the black-and-white-checked foyer of this Italianate mansion—was queen of the underworld, the Pomegranate Inn retains a queenly grandeur. Vibrant pieces of eclectic contemporary art acquired by owner and designer Isabel Smiles contrast with stately antiques that make staying here feel like a night at the museum. Five out of the eight rooms have colorful, mosaic-tiled gas fireplaces; the most spacious lodging is in room No. 8, with an adjoining sitting room and rice-paper accents. Located in Portland's well-heeled Western Promenade district, the Pomegranate is at once an escape from the city and an immersion in its artsy scene. (The I.M. Pei–designed Portland Museum of Art is just a short walk away.) It will also grow in the hearts of even the Grinchiest B&B haters, as there's no granny creaking along squeaky floors to serve overly sweet treats. Instead, boyish assistant innkeeper Peter pours afternoon wine in the lush garden courtyard. (The inn has a no-child policy—guests must be at least 16 years old.) Breakfast, cooked by former sailboat captain Kim, is a leisurely affair of delicately cooked eggs and, naturally, pomegranate juice.

Two-night minimum on weekends.
