The majestic white hotel on Kennebunkport beach has a sister property on South Florida’s Gold Coast, at Delray Beach to be exact, that operates year round. The northernmost Colony overlooks the Atlantic from its scenic promontory location and is open from mid-May through late October. In addition to being owned and managed by the Boughton family since 1947, the 125-room Colony stands as one of region's pioneers in terms of sustainable and eco-friendly business practices. Guests have access to nearby outdoor activities like kayaking, bicycling, boating, and hiking, and the Colony also provides a private beach, 18-hole putting green, a heated saltwater pool, multiple gardens, and a dining room that serves three meals daily, including haddock Hollandaise and “lazy” lobster served out of the shell.

Room to Book:

Rooms on the top floor of the four-story edifice, facing the ocean, feature prime views and either queen or king-sized beds.

Insider Tip:

The nearby Brick Store Museum not only occupies a one-time dry goods store that dates to 1825, it also features $5 walking tours of Kennebunk’s historic district from May through October.
