American Seaside Escapes

Slide 4 of 18

Camden Harbour Inn; Camden, Maine

All 20 rooms at this harborside inn are named after famous ports of the Dutch East India Trading Company (a nod to its owners' Dutch heritage). The exterior is classic New England white clapboard; the interior, a mix of mod lighting from Habitat and Asian antiques. Its outstanding restaurant, Natalie's, looks like a Parisian boîte, offering ambitious dishes like local sea scallops with Hon Shimeji mushrooms, tomato coriander sauce and baby bok choy by chef Geoffrey Deconinck (an F&W 2011 People's Best New Chef nominee).
