Family friendly vacations at Maine hotels and resorts

Maine hotels, resorts, and lodgings consider themselves family friendly and specifically kid friendly, and many go out of their way to accommodate children and families on vacation. Some Maine hotels, motels, and waterfront lodgings offer suites of one and two bedrooms; free local transportation to nearby adventures like whale watching trips, sea kayaking, or sailing on a coastal schooner or lobster boat; children’s day programs with supervised recreation; access to nearby museums that appeal to both adults and children; and, of course, swimming pools.
