White Barn Inn
Not for nothing has White Barn Inn been blessed with just about every hospitality and dining award possible. This charming estate on the Kennebunk River has been a draw for couples seeking enchantment and celebrities seeking discretion for over 150 years. Guests can choose between a stand-alone cottage with views of the river and a room or suite in the historic main house, many with welcome touches like double-sided fireplaces, vases of fresh flowers and spa-like bathrooms with jet-tubs for two. The tempting outdoor pool is surrounded by greenery and the spa is one of the best in the region, but even these are trumped by the headline-grabbing restaurant, where indulgent four-course set menus are triumphant celebrations of the finest Maine produce.
