Summer in New York City can be exhausting and stifling, leaving many travelers jetting away on weekends.

Travel Today recommends the Higgins Beach Inn (Scarborough, ME) as an excellent getaway for any traveller seeking a beautiful beach, sun, and relaxation.

The beautiful inn is located just one block from the water in an 1897 Colonial Revival-style building. The unique & stately 3-story Inn is just two miles from the Prouts Neck Peninsula, four miles from Crescent Beach State Park, and nine miles from the Portland International Airport. This makes it a quick 10 minute ride from the airport to your beach suite!

Inside, travelers will find bright, and warmly decorated rooms with a quaint vibe. The classic Maine architecture expands through the entire property. In 2017, the property’s owner, the Migis Hotel Group, renovated the Inn and its guestrooms to blend its historic charm with amenities the modern traveler seeks today, including private bathrooms, comfortable beds, an updated dining experience, flat screen TVs, and high-speed WiFi throughout the building and grounds. The hotel group says that they “believe in fostering once-in-a-lifetime experiences in beautiful natural landscapes and providing unparalleled hospitality during your stay.”.

Shade, the eatery at Higgins Beach Inn, serves seasonally fresh cuisine, including raw oysters and locally sourced seafood, and refreshing cocktails, craft brews, and draft wines. The dining experience from their covered three-season punch is incredible, and highly recommended.

The Higgins Beach Inn has excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and Google Reviews.
