Maine's hotel scene includes a surprising array of accommodation typesgiven the state's 33,215-square-mile area, there is plenty of room for diversity. Travelers will find enough seaside inns, motels, and B&Bs along the 5,500-mile coastline to dampen any desire to head inland. Among the finest lodgings are Kennebunkport's White Barn Inn, where in true Maine style, there's a 44-foot Hinckley available to charter. The Bar Harbor Inn, near Acadia National Park, is a bit plainer inside, but makes up for that with its views. When you do decide to check out the interior of the state, the Northern Outdoors resort will push you out the door for a day of rafting or snowmobiling and then help you kick your feet up with a pint of house-brewed ale, while the Bethel Inn, near Sunday River, caters to downhill skiers and golfers alike. For those who want to simply relax and watch the sailboats go by or the snow fall, that's fine, too; but remember to book a year in advance, if you can, for summer and winter, or you'll just be watching the "no vacancy" signs light up. Nightly rates range from $80 for a fall-foliage getaway in the mountains (Maine remains less busy than Vermont or New Hampshire for leaf peepers) to $1,500 for a waterfront cottage in July.
