Okay, so you're not the next Winslow Homer. But you still may be inspired to pick up a paintbrush at the Rock Gardens Inn, which hosts art workshops in the summer months. Provided you can find it, that is—Rock Gardens is hidden on its own peninsula south of Bath and is reached via a drive through Sebasco Harbor Resort. (Popham Beach is ten minutes away by car.) Once you're here, though, you'll have no wish to find your way out: Ten cottages are perched along the peninsula, surrounded by the pine-meets-ocean splendor that defines Maine. The cottages have two to four bedrooms, while the main house has three additional rooms. Don't expect Jacuzzis or marble bathrooms: The dazzler here is the view, and the cottages are comfortable, with fireplaces and decks. Rock Gardens has been operating since 1911, and keeps families coming back with weekly lobster cookouts, swimming in the ocean or heated pool, croquet, and kayaking; guests can also golf, play tennis, or bowl at Sebasco. But chances are you'll be too busy communing with your muse: the craggy coastline of Casco Bay.

Closed seasonally (October through May).
