At Higgins Beach Inn, it’s said that happiness comes in waves. Located in a quiet Maine coastal community approximately 7 miles south of Portland, and 110 miles north of Boston, the three-story colonial revival structure dates back to 1897, and the Inn is within a stone's throw of unspoiled, sandy, Higgins Beach. Each inviting guestroom emanates the charm of a relaxing beach hotel, but you can also expect the impressive amenities and contemporary comforts that all modern travelers seek while vacationing along Maine's beautiful coast.
