DINE inns share some resolution solutions for 2023

Spa treatments at Manor On Golden PondResolution 1: Reduce stress in my life: Our answer: a spa getaway.  Choose between the Manor On Golden Pond’s Spa packages or a private couples massage at the Harbor Light Inn.  Not only will you relax the stress away, but a couples massage is the ultimate in romance too.  Add to that fine food and accommodations and you’ll get a big jump on relaxing with the one you love and reducing stress all in one.

Resolution 2: Eat healthy: With a focus on farm-to-table and local fare, both the Rabbit Hill Inn and Chesterfield Inn will offer resolution results when it comes to filling  your body with farm fresh and the highest quality culinary adventure, not to mention gourmet and creative cuisine. Oh, and they also offer fabulous breakfasts to start the day plus amazing accommodations.

Cooking class at Inn at English MeadowsAnother option here is to book the Inn at English Meadow’s Maine Culinary Vacation Package.  Gather your besties or follow healthy eating wanna be’s and learn to cook healthy from a local Kennebunkport chef.  This package combines a fun getaway with culinary prowess for the ultimate in resolution solution vacations.  The Manor on Golden Pond has also revived their popular Epicurean Escapades with monthly cooking classes. You’ll want to book either of these soon and give the inns a little time to set up your class.

Resolution 3: Revive the Romance: While any DINE member inn will certainly offer the perfect solution here,  the Captain’s House Inn offers fireplaces in just about every room, many with deep double whirlpool baths. Pair this with a quiet and peaceful winter Cape Cod getaway and you’re sure to revive the romance with walks on the beach followed by fireside soaks in a whirlpool tub.

If you’re looking for something a little less active, a stroll around the bucolic town of Grafton will definitely get you out and about.  Burn some calories on the trails then return for everything from fine to casual dining at Grafton Inn’s dining rooms.

Harborside lodging isn’t just for warmer weather.  Enjoy a getaway to the Inn at Harbor Hill Marina this winter, and take in boardwalk and Niantic strolls, museums and Mystic Seaport accompanied by water view rooms overlooking a peacefully quiet marina.  It’s the perfect way get out and stay inn all at once.
