Blair Hill Inn

351 Lily Bay Rd., Greenville, Maine, 04441, USA

Beautiful gardens and a hilltop location with marvelous views over the lake distinguish this 1891 country estate, one of New England's top inns. The spacious guest rooms all have sitting areas, and five have fireplaces; expect fine furnishings and antiques, plush bedding, and elegant baths, most with oversize tubs and separate showers. Owners Ruth and Dan McLaughlin delight in offering relaxed luxury and thoughtful extras, from arranging in-room massages to putting flowers in the guest rooms. The inn's restaurant (mid-June–mid-October, Thursday–Saturday) serves a five-course prix-fixe dinner that incorporates seasonal vegetables and herbs from the inn's gardens. Arrive early to enjoy cocktails—and that view—from the veranda or the swank cocktail lounge.
