Blue Hill Inn

40 Union St., Blue Hill, Maine, 04614, USA

One side of this Federal-style inn was built as a home in 1835, but it soon became lodging, adding a wing with a matching facade in the 1850s. The larger, more ornate accommodations are in the original home, but service excels throughout. Wide-plank pumpkin-pine floors, some painted, set the tone for the mix of antiques that fill the parlor, library, and guest rooms. Room 10, once a front parlor, has a neoclassical mantle above the wood-burning fireplace; upstairs, Room 8 has windows on three sides and views of the gardens and apple trees. Guests can order wine or spirits to enjoy with the complimentary appetizers served each evening, and an excellent full breakfast is included with the rate.
