As we prepare to say goodbye to May and hello to longer days in June, we’re reminded that summer is right around the corner. Each of the ten Distinctive Inns of New England
look forward to welcoming guests for romantic getaways
and New England outdoor fun
. Seeing a number of summer-like photos recently posted to DINE member facebook pages, we thought we’d share a few of them here to remind you that the best time to book your culinary packages
and spa getaways
is now. The sooner you make your plans and reserve your stay, the better chance you’ll have to get your favorite room.
Just to entice you a little further, here are some reminders that spring is in the air and summer is right around the corner at DINE inns.
Check out the gardens at the Camden Maine Stay! Spring flowers are in bloom and we all know what happens after that. Be sure to take the garden stroll when you’re here this summer. The gardens are just gorgous.
