This sprawl­ing 70-acre prop­erty has presided over the rocky ocean­front of south­ern Maine since 1872, when it catered to rail trav­ellers from the north­east­ern se­aboard. Strik­ing a bal­ance be­tween craggy and cozy, the all-sea­son re­sort’s new suites fea­ture wrap­around bal­conies that put the windswept hori­zon at eye level. To com­bat the chill, pull on a plaid bathrobe, snug­gle up in com­forters from lo­cal com­pany Cud­dle­down or gather in front of the fire­place in the fes­tive lower lobby with its tow­er­ing Christ­mas tree. Af­ter tuck­ing into the Tiller’s ex­cel­lent lob­ster rolls, smoked salmon and mus­sels, the steam­ing out­door hot tub is the per­fect place to con­tem­plate the starry win­ter sky.
