Chanler at Cliff Walk
There are only 20 rooms at the Chanler, built in 1873 as a private summer home. Each guest room is individually named and designed—some reflect a French provincial style, others have Greek Revival details. All are luxuriously appointed with heated bathroom floors, wet bars, and antique prints or original oil paintings. Reservations are strongly recommended at the Chanler’s well-regarded restaurant, Spiced Pear. The kitchen opens up to an elegant dining room with Atlantic Ocean views; organic, seasonal New England fare includes Zinfandel-poached pear and Maine diver scallops served with a sunchoke purée.
