In Cape Elizabeth, a charming New England coastal town located on Crescent Bay just outside of Portland, Maine the picturesque Inn by the Sea offers offers travelers eco-friendly luxury, stunning waterfront views and true New England hospitality, with a paranormal twist.
The resort claims to be haunted.
Lydia, the ghost of a 19th century bride-to-be, seems to be making the Inn her permanent residence, but doesn't mind sharing the newly remodeled grounds with out-of-towners. Talk to many of the staff, and even some guests, and learn about odd occurrences that are said to be linked to Lydia's mischief.
If wayward spirits aren't really a draw, the Inn by the Sea offers a number of attractive vacation packages, from pet friendly to family vacation ideas. Book in October and enter the Inn's pumpkin carving contest (October 1-31st). Let Lydia inspire you and get creative. The winner of the contest will have their expenses credited back to them!
