Cape Elizabeth- October 18, 2016…Condé Nast Traveler readers have once again selected Maine’s Inn by the Sea one of the Best Resorts in the Northeast in the 29th Annual Reader’s Choice Awards. Over 300,000 readers cast votes for ‘the best of the best in travel’, and 2016 results will be announced in November issues of the luxury travel magazine.

According to Condé Nast Traveler, their Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. The magazine states that under Editor in Chief Pilar Guzmán the awards have become more selective and specific to the passions that inspire today’s travelers.

Inn by the Sea offers guests the perfect combination of relaxed seaside getaway with a mile of unspoiled sand beach, pool, rejuvenating SPA, and fresh ocean view dining, yet is minutes from Portland’s boutique shopping, and cultural, foodie and water activities. The Inn retains the charm of traditional shingled coastal resorts, but with a luxurious, modern vibe throughout the 61 one and two bedroom suites and fireplace rooms.

“The award serves as inspiration to our dedicated staff to deliver on the promise of genuine service, combined with the highest quality accommodations and dining,†stated Michael Briggs, the Inn’s General Manager. “The natural beauty of our beach location sets us apart in the region, and we continually work to deliver an outstanding luxury experience to visitors to Maine.â€

“We are grateful to the discerning Condé  Nast Traveler readers who continue to enjoy the Inn’s contemporary and stylish take on  coastal resorts, and are delighted to be ranked among some of the finest properties in the Northeast.†said Briggs.
