We stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary, even thought we live only 9 miles away. The Inn is wonderful in every way - great service, excellent food, beautiful grounds, elegant and comfortable rooms and terrific views of the sea and woods.

Inn by the Sea is a beautiful property. We stayed in a two bedroom ocean front suite that was lovely and spacious. We enjoyed the indoor/outdoor fireplace, the beautiful views and the convenience of having a full kitchen at our disposal. The staff was very friendly and Mark, in particular, was very helpful in assisting us with our restaurant choices...

From the moment we walked in the door we were welcomed and felt comfortable. The gentleman at the front desk helped verify that a place down the street (Rudy's) had pizza on their menu. Excellent service throughout the stay. Our visit to the Spa was amazing. Overall a very relaxing visit.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the inn! It's beautiful and in a great location, right off the beach and only about 15 minutes from downtown Portland! We stayed in one of the traditional fireplace rooms which was perfect this time of year (early March), very clean, cozy, and beautiful view of the ocean! Highly recommend it!

This was our first visit, and it was such a lovely treat. We ordered room service (for ourselves and our dog,) enjoyed spa treatments, took advantage of valet parking, had drinks in the lounge with our golden retriever... we did it up, and had a wonderful time. The staff were incredibly welcoming and accommodating, and all seemed to love dogs....
