Tranquil coastal inn gives guests quintessential Maine vacation
Freshly renovated to add modern amenities to old-fashioned New England charm, the Higgins Beach Inn is the place you go to to experience the quintessential Maine getaway. The three-story Colonial Revival-style building, a stone’s throw to the white sands of unspoiled Higgins Beach, is only 15 minutes from bustling Portland but feels like another world, where kids frolic in the ocean, where adults watch the sunset from the bay window of their room, where families plan an excursion to Old Orchard Beach and friends plot a route touring all the local breweries. Attentive service, a helpful concierge and a restaurant where you can enjoy your lobster roll on the porch round out the inn’s warm, welcoming atmosphere.
