Elegant inns on the Maine Coast offer R&R for foodies, outdoor adventure and marine enthusiasts

In Maine, an outdoor adventure could be anything from going on a puffin cruise to casting off on a sport-fishing cruise. At the Camden Maine Stay Inn, a grand home in one of the country’s most beautiful seaside villages, you can hike 30 miles of trails in Camden Hills State Park, golf on a choice of nearby courses, sail on a windjammer or scale Mount Battle (Edna St. Vincent Millay used to do that for inspiration). Skiing or tobogganing at the nearby Camden Snowbowl draw visitors in the winter too. At the Captain Jefferds Inn in equally charming Kennebunkport, plan to stroll to nearby beaches, go kayaking, explore nearby Dock Square, tour a lighthouse or go horseback riding. Then come back to the inn for hot mulled cider in the winter or homemade lemonade in the summer. Hiking and XC skiing are favorite pastimes at the nearby Rachel Carson Preserve. Year-round poking about the eclectic shops in Kennebunkport and Camden – both within an easy stroll of the inns – is popular. Maine is an ideal location for foodies too, with award winning restaurants within an easy walk of both inns.

Whitewater rafting center gets you close to Mother Nature at her best

You’ll get to see the great outdoors up close and personal when you sign up for a whitewater rafting adventure at Crab Apple Whitewater. Imagine zooming through Class III and IV rapids like “Three Sisters” and “Magic Falls” on the spectacular Kennebec River, passing by Maine’s woodlands and wildlife. Or conquering high-water rafting on the Dead River. Or maybe you want a calmer trip with places to float and swim. Head back to the base camp for overnight lodging, some paintball fun or maybe a walk to Moxie Falls, Maine’s highest waterfall. Or here’s an idea: Sign up for a moose safari, leaving at dusk from May through August, in search of the amazing beasts in their natural habitat.
