It feels like there aren't too many areas of Maine that we haven't explored, but this week's column took us to a new location neither of us had ever visited: Prouts Neck in Scarboro, to the Black Point Inn.
The huge and historic building is surrounded by private homes and looks like an elegant Maine cottage with a cupola and lovely arched windows along the first floor. Todd, a bellman, greeted us and the friendly front desk staff checked us in with a genuine welcome. They told us the Inn’s rooms have a cottage feel, and indeed the sea colors of our room matched that description.
The furnishings included an antique desk and dresser, a king size bed with a supremely comfortable mattress and exquisite linens. Our windows looked out to the ocean.
