A virtual tour of holiday decorations at DINE inns – Part III – Maine & CT inns

Gold holiday trees at Inn at Harbor Hill MarinaHanukkah is upon us and Christmas is not far away.  The innkeepers at the Distinctive Inns of New England (DINE) have decked the halls and are bringing on the Figgy Pudding.  With last week’s storm, we have a white Christmas at least in the Northern parts of DINE country.  Yet, if you seek a snowless Christmas,  you’re in luck!  We’re featuring holiday decorations from our inns in Maine and Connecticut, where we expect lawns and beaches to be in full sight for the holidays.  Book a holiday stay at any of the nine DINE inns and you’ll not only take home wonderful memories, but you’ll also be treated to some fabulous holiday decorating ideas by talented innkeepers too.

In Part I of this blog series we focused on holiday decorations at the inns in Vermont and New Hampshire. Click here to take a virtual tour of their decorations. Last week, we focused on beautiful trees, wreaths and vintage decor at our inns in Massachusetts in Part II of the series.  We’ll wrap up the series this week with a delightful array of holiday decorations featured at the Inn At Harbor Hill in Connecticut and the Inn at English Meadows in Maine.

Inn at Harbor Hill Marina, Niantic, CT

You’ll find a definite contemporary nautical feel to not only the holiday decorations but the styling throughout this inn.  Overlooking the marina with access to Niantic Bay, here’s a great place for a romantic getaway over the holidays and into the new year.

From the moment guests are welcomed, it’s the nautical touches that highlight the stay here.

At Inn at English Meadows, Lower Kennebunkport Village, Maine

Much like its fellow DINE member inn in Connecticut, the decor is elegant, and leans toward modern here at the Inn at English Meadows.  Within an easy stroll of all the shops and restaurants of Kennebunkport, your stay here will be highlighted with beautifully appointed rooms, thousands of white lights and lovely holiday decor.

We’ve taken you on an armchair tour of all of the nine DINE inns.  Speaking of nine, we have to admit, they’re decked to the nines, and we hope  you’ll have a chance to take in some of these beautiful settings before the holidays are over.  They’ll stay decked through New Year’s so there’s still time! Don’t forget to book directly with the inn for your next stay.
