New England’s best luxury hotels
When it comes to scenic landscapes, seaside sunsets and rich cultural heritage, there are few places in the New World that can compare to the New England region of the United States. From Maine to Maryland, this campaign of seaports and cities is rich in history and a patriotic spirit. Cradle of the dream they called “America”, these states are home to some of the most beautiful resorts and luxury hotels in the country.
Whether you are looking for a quiet place to relax in the heart of the wilderness, or a stay in Manhattan with plenty to keep you occupied, this region can make a fantastic vacation, a planned event or a business trip.
Freedom. Boston, Massachusetts
Located at the foot of Beacon Hill, the Liberty Hotel is a unique blend of historic landscapes and modernized luxury. Built in the former Charles Street Prison, a national historic monument built in 1851, this cathedral-like design includes 298 rooms and suites with breathtaking views of the Charles River and the picturesque skyline. The 6000 square feet of meeting and event space make it an ideal place to organize an evening, personal or professional.
Liberty amenities include high-speed Wi-Fi, valet parking, concierge services, as well as a 24-hour business centre and a 24-hour fitness centre. 24-hour room service is available via exquisite room service.
The suites themselves are very well appointed for all discerning guests, including in-room safes, high-speed internet, HD-LCD TV, private in-room bars and even a night shoeshine service. Spend a Saturday on exclusive yoga classes with Equinox instructors, the 24-hour fitness centre, a free Boston jogging card, and even seasonal take-out bikes.
Grace White Barn Inn & Spa. Kennebunk, Maine
The White Barn Inn in Kennebunk has been welcoming guests for 150 years. The place is known for its art galleries and beaches. The hotel is a farm and offers 26 rooms. The hotel is open all year except 2 weeks in January. The swimming pool is heated in winter and the hotel offers its guests a memorable stay in any season. The restaurant, in particular, is very well known – only local products are processed there and everything is prepared in-house. Their tasting menu takes the guest on a culinary journey. This hotel is part of the Relais et Châteaux group. The White Barn Inn is not a family-run hotel – couples and those looking for quiet home here.
Inn by the sea. Cape Elizabeth, Maine
Maine is known to be one of the last pure wild states in the United States, but no one has said that “wild” should mean “devoid of opulence.” The Inn by the Sea is a great way to experience this northern state, with its evergreen forests and the rocky Atlantic coast in the most luxurious way possible.
Inn by the Sea is located just fifteen minutes from the city of Portland, Maine, and stretches over a mile of sandy beaches braving the harsh Atlantic coast. The sixty-one rooms in the suites are perfect for solo trips, couples or even family outings. Taste local dishes served with flares at Cape Elizebeth Restaurant and round off the day with a large spa before snuggling up on the beach with a fire as the loons call through this luxury oasis in the last wild border of America.
The Ocean House. Watch Hill, Rhodes Island
This luxury hotel has only 68 rooms and is located directly on the sea. On a beautiful day, you can see Montauk and Block Island from the hotel. Art lovers will get their money’s worth as there are many works of art to discover throughout the hotel. There are around 20 galleries near the hotel, which invite you to view them. In the kitchen of the house, the emphasis is on local dishes. If the sun were to hide, the Ocean House offers a 20-meter indoor pool filled with Atlantic salt water. The Ocean House is not a family hotel and does not offer a children’s program. But wine tastings are planned for the adult generation. Do not miss the Sunday brunch, which is accompanied by jazz or blues concerts.
The Pitcher Inn. Warren, Vermont
Although it is one of the smallest states in this compact region, Vermont has some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States. With mountains covered in forest glowing with color during the fall, you will find that nature itself is luxurious in this New England state. That is, until you walk through the doors of the Pitcher Inn, Vermont’s first luxury accommodation for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of life but not the joys of modern comfort.
The inn here reminds of a lodge, in that the elegant woodwork put into the structure is bathed in the brilliance of the artistic work of American artisans at its best. Built-in the heart of the ski area, this inn has all the amenities you would expect as well as a few exclusive offers with local gourmet establishments just steps from the hotel’s front door.
Whether you are looking for an escape or a city that never sleeps, New England has been a place of excitement and culture since pilgrims settled in Plymouth, Massachusetts. With its sprawling mountains, wide rivers and rocky shores, the New Englanders are proud of where they live, and each luxury hotel here is a first-class stop in a beautiful historic region that will leave you with millions of options when looking for your next getaway or business trip. Either way, these small states have a place to relax and an adventure for all tastes just waiting behind their doors.
