Hotel in Southwest Harbor

One of the island's oldest (established 1884) and most graceful hotels, the Claremont has some of the most stunning views from any guesthouse in the area, with a wraparound porch and sloping broad lawns giving way to boats bobbing in the water. Its 24 guest rooms are decorated in country-style furnishings; there are additional cottages in a variety of styles.

There's a fantastic restaurant and an elegant bar on-site.
