Down Easter Inn

220 Bristol Rd.
Damariscotta , ME , United States http://www.downeasterinn.com/
(207) 563-5332

This 22-room, telephone-free escape on Maine’s central coast is open Memorial Day through Columbus Day. Gilmore Huston, a successful ship chandler from Bristol, built the white, Greek Revival plantation home in 1850. Notable architecural features include the two-level front porch, which is supported by a quartet of fluted, hand-carved white columns topped by ornate Corinthian capitals. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Down Easter places travelers within minutes of boat companies offering tours to Monhegan Island and the rocky coves, lighthouses, and scenic hamlets of Boothbay Harbor. Continental breakfast is part of the stay, and it’s served daily in the main dining room.
