Why Stay At Tides Beach Club
This renovated 19th-century inn on Maine's southern coast is set on one of the state's most picturesque private beaches.
Picture a classic, clapboard Maine inn, and you're imagining Tides Beach Club, on Goose Rocks Beach just two miles east of Kennebunkport's town center. There's plenty of history here: the stately Victorian hotel was originally built in 1899, but a major 2011 renovation updated—and upgraded—the interiors. The 21 rooms, spread over three floors, are done up in pastel colors, and bathrooms are stocked with Malin & Goetz bath products. Private decks overlook the Atlantic and the hotel's three-mile stretch of beach, where staffers set up chairs and umbrellas and leave coolers stocked with chilled water and lunch from the Tides Beach Club restaurant.
The hotel's sister property, Hidden Pond, has a tree-house-inspired spa and top-notch restaurant. Guests of Tides Beach Club are welcome.
The property doesn't offer room service, so be sure to pick up a few snacks at the nearby Cape Porpoise Kitchen or Bradbury Bros. Market.
Arrive at Portland International Jetport (PWM) which is approximately 25 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 45 minutes of travel time.254 Kings Highway, Goose Rocks Beach, Kennebunkport, Maine, United States
