It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Inns Along the Coast - Part I

We've decked the halls with boughs of holly...and reindeer, ornaments and much more.  Come along for an armchair tour of the holiday decorations at Inns Along the Coast.  From modern to Victorian, you'll see that it's really looking like Christmas at our Maine Coastal Inns, from Kennebunkport to Midcoast Maine to  Acadia Country and Bar Harbor!

And Newcastle Inn's mantles are decorated in holiday lights and whimsical snowmen too.

Next, we move up the coast to Rockland.  Here you'll be welcomed with what has been named by Travel & Leisure Magazine as one of the best whacky Christmas Trees in the World.  It's also appeared on World's Most Extreme Christmas Trees.  It's none other than Rockland's famous - and we think quite lovely - Lobster Trap Christmas Tree!
