Enjoy the Changing of the Seasons
Staying at our luxury hotel in Portland Maine will afford you more opportunities than just the scenic beaches. Typically peaking in mid-October, fall foliage on the coast can be enjoyed from your own private balcony or deck at Inn by the Sea overlooking our wildlife habitat and Crescent Beach, or by taking a drive up the Coast of Route 1.
When to See The Colors
Bright and cool autumn days, while the nights are cold but above freezing temperatures, are when the brightest colors come alive. This is due to the slowing of chlorophyll production normally created by the warm summer sunlight. You will experience the disappearance of greens giving way to a sea of yellows, reds, oranges and even purple. Be sure to bring your camera and take your time enjoying a favorite time of year in Maine.
