What’s your image of an ideal romantic getaway? The City of Light? Some Caribbean isle?
Well, if you ask us, it’s mighty hard to top the rugged, beauty-steeped coastline of Maine in the romance department. And you can’t do better than our Craignair Inn by the Sea here in idyllic Spruce Head, Maine—with front-row seats to the Atlantic shore and serene Clark Island—when it comes to amorous accommodations for two.
Whether you’re looking to pop the question, celebrate a honeymoon or anniversary, or simply steal away with your main squeeze for some well-deserved, no-excuses-needed time together, we’d love to host you here at The Craignair Inn by the Sea.
If you need more convincing, allow us to break down some of the key ingredients for the most ultra-romantic of Maine vacations for couples, and demonstrate how our bed and breakfast checks each and every one of them off…
Must-Have #1: An Ocean View
The slow roll of the Gulf of Maine provides the soothing and meditative ocean tempo for a romantic idyll. There’s something primal about a seascape’s appeal, and sharing the land’s-end vista with that special somebody is as good as it gets!
The two of you can savor lovely views of the ocean with a North Atlantic Coast perch at The Craignair Inn, not least from many of our beautifully furnished guest rooms and suites—or relaxing on our shorefront lawn.
Must-Have #2: Lighthouses
Maine can honestly lay claim to some of the most photogenic lighthouses in the world, and a room or suite for two at The Craignair Inn puts a whole slew of them within easy reach.
To take but one very well-known example, consider the Marshall Point Light, which you may well recognize from the modern classic Forrest Gump. The current tower, reached by an over-water walkway, dates to 1857 (replacing an 1832 predecessor), and it’s a swoony sight—especially during Golden Hour, the period of time just after sunrise or just before sunset when the light is infused with red and gold tones.
Must-Have #3: Date-Worthy Dining
Naturally, you need scrumptious food and glasses full of something with which to toast one another, right? Well, you’re definitely spoiled for choices when it comes to date-it-up dining in MidCoast Maine, but it’s hard to top what we offer right here on our grounds at The Craignair Inn by the Sea: the Causeway Restaurant and Clark Bar.
Expect fresh and local gourmet cuisine at our on-site restaurant, which offers a fantastic ambiance from its art-gallery dining space and main dining room to the year-round outdoor deck—plus finely crafted libations at the Clark Bar.
Must-Have #4: A Welcoming & Quiet Venue
It doesn’t get more serene than MidCoast Maine, a gorgeous medley of forest, saltwater farms, small fishing towns, and a justly celebrated oceanfront of beaches, headlands, and islands.
And you’ll find that tranquility, absolutely ideal for a romantic escape, distilled to its essence at our Spruce Head bed and breakfast, backed up by the warmest hospitality you can imagine.
Must-Have #5: The Right Kind of Beverage Upon Arrival
You want to set the mood for a romantic escape right away, and here at The Craignair Inn, we help you do just that. Among our romance-focused specials, you can reserve a welcome bottle of wine or a mini-bottle of Prosecco to greet you upon check-in. Combine with our swoony coastal views—and the sheer perfection of our guest rooms and suites in both the main Inn building and the Vestry—and you’ve got everything you need!
Must-Have #6: A Touch of History
Tapping into deeper dimensions of time adds foundation and perspective to your sweetheart’s vacation on the Maine seashore. The MidCoast boasts a rich and fascinating history, with no shortage of historic sites and museums that make for wonderful day trips from our bed and breakfast.
And The Craignair Inn by the Sea itself offers its own fascinating backstory, having been built in 1930 to house stonecutters from the Clark Island quarries (granite from which was incorporated into such landmarks as the Library of Congress, the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, and the gatehouses and bridges of Manhattan’s Central Park). Seventeen years later, the buildings were transformed into an inn, and it’s our immeasurable honor to keep its hospitality tradition alive in the 21st century!
