Fodor's Expert Review White Barn Inn
37 Beach Ave., Kennebunk, Maine, 04043, USA
For a romantic, indulgent overnight stay, look no further than the exclusive White Barn Inn, known for its attentive, old-school service and intimate atmosphere. No detail has been overlooked in the meticulously appointed rooms, from plush bedding and reading lamps to robes and slippers. Some quarters have fireplaces, hot tubs, and luxurious baths with steam showers. Pamper yourself in the elegant spa, or relax in the main inn's common room with piping-hot tea or coffee, cider, or rich brandy for a pre- or postdinner tipple near the roaring fireplace. Formally attired waiters, careful service, and exquisite food have earned this inn's restaurant—housed in a pair of restored 1820s barns—accolades as one of the best in New England. The four-course prix-fixe dinner features regional and organic fare.
