Eco Luxury Inn by the Sea Joins Preferred Boutique™

Inn by the Sea joins a unique collection of intimate hotels & resorts that share an element of inspiration


Cape Elizabeth Maine, March 11, 2011……The eco luxury  Inn by the Sea, located on Crescent Beach on the coast of Maine,  has been accepted  as a member of Preferred Boutique, the Preferred Hotel’s Group’s™ elite collection of intimate hotels and resorts, announced Inn by the Sea’s General Manager Sara Masterson. After a multimillion dollar renovation Inn by the Sea offers the distinctive travel experience showcasing style, service and personality on an intimate scale that is the hallmark of the Preferred Boutique™ collection of resorts.


“We are delighted to join the Preferred Boutique™ collection and appreciate their commitment to inspired and unique travel options,” stated Masterson. “The brand defines the boutique hotel experience for travelers with personalized service, intimate surroundings and a dedication to excellence. Inn by the Sea is very much in step with those goals maintaining an atmosphere of relaxed luxury, a long standing commitment to service, and a focus on preserving our local environment and pristine beach setting.”

Launched in 2005 by Preferred Hotel Group,™ Preferred Boutique™ properties encompass eclectic properties from palaces to tent camps to hip urban hotels in four categories:  Classic, Design, Adventure and Resort. They all share an element of inspiration that sifts the extraordinary from the ordinary. Maine’s casually elegant beach destination, Inn by the Sea, is a member of Preferred’s resort collection.

Located on a mile of unspoiled sandy beach just seven miles from Portland’s vibrant dining and shopping scene, Inn by the Sea is New England’s premier beach destination offering a stylish modern take on a classic Maine coastal experience.

The intimate 57 room inn overlooking Crescent Beach was completely renovated in 2008 adding luxuriously appointed accommodations, a full SPA, expanded ocean view dining, and cozy fireplace lounge to the inns already well established tradition of friendly service and elegant coastal charm.

Guests at Inn by the Sea enjoy panoramic views of the Atlantic, five acres of indigenous gardens and a charming private boardwalk that winds through a bird sanctuary to reach Crescent Beach. Spa at Inn by the Sea, the first in Maine built to be Leeds® certified, celebrates its coastal setting with marine inspired treatments and products. Their signature Sea Waves massage, complete with surf surround sound, ocean aroma and an undulating bed synchronized to the therapist’s strokes, enfolds the guest in a complete coastal experience.

While dining in the ocean view Sea Glass guests enjoy Chef Mitchell Kaldrovich’s creative menus that give a nod to Casco Bay with produce fresh from the sea or nearby farms. Captivating cuisine celebrates Maine fare with a farm to fork dining experience. Whether inside the intimate dining room or eating Al Fresco on the deck, panoramic Atlantic views include lobster boats bobbing on the horizon.

 Inn by the Sea caters to individual leisure or business travelers looking for an inspired coastal getaway in spacious one bedroom garden or spa suites with over sized bathrooms and hospitality kitchens. Families planning a beach vacation enjoy the comfort of two bedroom cottage style accommodation with small kitchens - perfect for multi generational vacations and reunions. Children are welcome with special kids’ summer programming and amenities. Doggie divas are greeted with turn down treats, gourmet menus, walking services and over the top pampering for VIP’s (very important pets)
