Colonial-Style Inn 1 Mile from Acadia National Park

Since its construction in the 1890s, the white clapboard house near the corner of Cottage Street and Holland Avenue in Bar Harbor, Maine, has been a lime-and-hair plaster company, a painter's office, and a private residence for a succession of families. Today, it's the Quimby House Inn, where owners Tim and Danielle Ray provide visitors with a taste of New England charm just minutes from the harbor and Acadia National Park.The Inn is conveniently located within walking distance of the center of town.

Past the colonial-style hotel's white-and-gray exterior, 22 comfortable guest rooms offer quiet respite. Select units boast cathedral ceilings and faux fireplaces accessorized with faux pokers that are actually baguettes. French tile bedspreads blanket king- or queen-size beds stationed next to plush wingback chairs. One option comes with spa credits that you can apply toward relaxing massages administered by Danielle, a licensed massage therapist. The breakfast and dinner credit, meanwhile, can be used at select restaurants downtown—Galyn's, Jordon's, Mama DiMatteo's, and The Looking Glass Restaurant.

Bar Harbor, Maine: Quaint Seaside Village on Coastal Maine Island

Mount Desert Island has been a playground for the country's elite since the Gilded Age, when the era's captains of industry—such as the Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Carnegies, and Astors—inhabited summer cottages there. Today's notable residents include media mogul and ladies’ arm-wrestling champ Martha Stewart. The Quimby House Inn sits only a few blocks from the heart of downtown Bar Harbor, an eastern port town that harks back to a bygone era with pedestrian-friendly streets brimming with boutique stores, restaurants, and specialty shops.

Depending on the weather, visitors can go cross-country skiing or hiking, or drive along the 3.5-mile road leading to the peak of Cadillac Mountain. On a clear day, visibility can stretch 100 miles to include Maine's highest mountain, Mount Katahdin, and the Canadian province of Nova Scotia in the distance. Early birds who arrive before dawn during a portion of the winter months can experience the earliest sunrise in the United States.
