From Kennebunkport to Bar Harbor, there is no shortage of enchanting places to enjoy during a wedding weekend in Maine—even if you’re not the bride.
In fact, the only thing better than being a newly married couple in Maine might just be the fun that comes with being an adventurous (and well-informed) guest.
The menu may change throughout the week, but a flavorful appetizer of chorizo and Gorgonzola-stuffed dates is a signature dish, as is the honey-glazed duck (which was so delicious I felt wistful at the end of my meal).
Don’t miss the gorgeously presented desserts, such as the rich chocolate soup with crème fraiche and pear gelato.
The Corner Room is one of my favorite places to bring friends.
Enjoy sweeping sea vistas, 18 holes of golf, a geothermal-heated pool, and trails for exploring the same rocky landscape that provided inspiration to artist Winslow Homer.
The Danforth is one of the most unique inns I’ve visited. Thoughtful decor, working fireplaces, and art works on loan from Gleason Fine Art give each of the 10 guest rooms a distinct personality.
I was charmed by the prohibition-era billiards room and a walk up to the cupola that features a ceiling of hand-painted stars and a window overlooking the city.EAT The lovely little restaurant Bresca is just right for a quiet dinner for two.I celebrated my wedding day 15 years ago in suburban New Jersey.Our reception was held in a charming Dutch colonial home built circa 1928.The evening was filled with our favorite music, delicious food, free-flowing cocktails, and our closest friends and family.To this day, my wedding is the best party I’ve ever attended, but there’s a small part of me that wonders what the wedding would have been like if it took place in the state I now call home.
