Built in 1793, this landmark inn on Northwest Harbor is on the National Register of Historic Places. It has since been restored, but original details like exposed wooden beams have been kept intact, and an old-school aesthetic still prevails. Each of the 12 rooms has a private bath and is uniquely decorated with country-time accents like flowered bedspreads, comfy armchairs, and, in some rooms, working fireplaces. Three cottages have more space with kitchenettes and private decks. Breakfast is included in room rates, and the inn's Whale's Rib Tavern serves dinner and cocktails.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
