The Inn at Ocean's Edge

New York Law Review, New Partners

partnersYour Maine Stay. Considering a romantic getaway somewhere Down East this summer? Why not avoid the hordes along the touristy coast of Maine and pamper yourselves with serene luxury at an oceanfront hideaway. Set on 22 landscaped acres overlooking the sea, The Inn at Ocean's Edge is one of those rare "finds" that savvy travelers prefer to keep secret.

Everything about this intimate little haven is tranquil and romantic. Fireplaces and Jacuzzis add finishing touches to the spacious and luxuriously appointed rooms. You can mingle with fellow guests (or not) in the book-lined common rooms where you'll also find computers and wi-fi. Should ocean swimming seem too rigorous, there's an oceanfront "infinity" pool edged with flowers and comfy chaises. And a short stroll through the private pine forest leads to The Edge, a superb restaurant where, on warm evenings, you can dine on the deck while enjoying spectacular views of the ocean.

Innkeepers Mary Ann and David Barrett have mastered the art of making you feel like VIP's while, at the same time, letting you pretend you're invisible in your own private bubble. And that's the Maine thing.
