Union Street Inn Review

Ken Withrow worked in the hotel business, Deborah Withrow in high-end retail display, and guests get the best of both worlds in this 1770 house, a stone's throw from the bustle of Main Street that was respectfully yet lavishly restored in 2013. Amenities include Frette linens, plump duvets, and lush robes (the better to lounge around in, my dear), as well as a full gourmet breakfast served on the tree-shaded garden patio—or in bed. Several rooms have that ultimate accessory for rekindling romance: a wood-burning fireplace.

2010 Fodor's 100 Hotel Award Winner

From the exterior's gray cedar shingles to the classic nautical prints on the walls, the Union Street Inn exudes the kind of New England charm that puts you in the mood for cuddling. Here it's done under fluffy quilts and by the light of a fire. After a night of tending the flames (as it were), refuel downstairs with a pitch-perfect made-to-order breakfast.
