Weekend Escapes in Maine

By Richard Rspad

Every so often, we all need weekend escapes to escape the grind of the rat race. Here are some ideas on weekend escapes in Maine you might find interesting.

Maine has been the coastal destination of choice for people wanting a New England escape for many years. Known for its beautiful shoreline dotted with many lighthouses, the Pine Tree State also offers vacationers many areas to enjoy nature and its pristine atmosphere. Weekend escapes in Maine are special as well because the romantic nature of the state and its coast, along with the easy accessibility from states such as New York, means it's a place that's away from everything but not to far.

One of the best places for your weekend escapes in Maine is located just 80 minutes outside of Boston, Massachusetts, in Kennebunkport, Maine. The White Barn Inn offers travelers a romantic and luxurious retreat from the hectic bustle of city life. Lavished with awards and praise from such sites as the Zagat Hotel Survey, this AAA Five Diamond resort is a great place to get away from it all in style. Valets to assist you, a turndown service, and fresh flowers in every room make sure that the White Barn Inn lives up to its Five Diamond reputation. The restaurant in-house, which was also awarded Five Diamonds, is exquisite, and a full service spa is available to pamper you and help you relax. Specials such as Fall Romance escape packages, as well as other romance and honeymoon packages, make this spot one of the best weekend escapes in Maine for a couple who want to reconnect.

Another of the great weekend escapes in Maine is available in Waterford, Maine, located on Bear Lake. The Bear Mountain Inn is a nature lover's paradise with warm weather activities such as boating, kayaking, canoeing and swimming all available on Bear Lake. For those who prefer winter activities, Bear Mountain Inn offers romantic winter weekends, which include full breakfasts, accommodations at a reduced rate, and even the use of snowshoes on the resort's cross country skiing trails. Open year round with nine rooms, one suite and one cottage to stay in, this secluded spot is perfect for your next trip to Maine.

Weekend escapes in Maine offer vacationers a great setting for romance, as well as a great place to enjoy nature and have a stress-free moment. With Maine's proximity to large cities such as Boston, it's a perfect place to get away from city life, and with different activities available in different seasons, it's always the right time to visit Maine.
