Located in the village of Castine, just steps from the harbor, this historic boutique hotel offers rural charm with a touch of the modern. The inn's 19 rooms, including three suites, are all located on the second and third floors, and each has its own bathroom. The concept is simple but elegant — think wingback chairs, pastel-colored walls, and window coverings with floral trim. Several rooms overlook the well-manicured lawn and garden. A complimentary breakfast is served in the dining room each morning, and the Modockawando pub offers entertainment in the evening.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
