Dining Down East

Down EastThe restaurant in this grand summer hotel is well worth the voyage.

"...Once inside the door, the transformation is complete, and you find yourself not just in another place, but almost in another century. A fire crackles on cool evenings in the massive ledgestone fireplace dominating one end of the huge open room, its walls and floors and beams of old, mellow pine. Comfortable sofas and chairs in rich, muted fabric are scattered throughout, tall windows are framed in cheery yellow gingham, tables hold board games and other diversions for kids and adults. A waiter welcomes you, offers you a drink which you can take out onto one of the porches to consume slowly as you watch the sun set.

And then...time for dinner..."
