In the magical center of Stockholm, one of my favorite cities of the world, sits the wonderful Miss Clara Hotel. Resident in one of Stockholm’s most delightful Art Nouveau buildings, Miss Clara amazes with her architectural turns and elements of beauty, but she also impresses as a top class hotel.
For generations, mariners navigating the Cuckolds, as the granite islands off the coast of Maine are known, heeded the fog horn and were steered by the gleam of the beacon of the Cuckolds Lighthouse. After a century of use the historic signal station dating to 1892 and lighthouse from 1907 were threatened with destruction, but thankfully saved by a group of preservation-minded citizens.
This summer marks the opening of the Inn at Cuckolds Lighthouse, the culmination of the renovation of the historic, and truly unique property. Guests of the inn have the opportunity to stay on their own private island along some of Maine’s most stunning coastline. The inn features two stunningly appointed guest suites inspired by the maritime history of the property. Enjoy the sea breeze, catch up on relaxation time, or have a cocktail by the sea.
Charming common spaces invite guests to relax, read, play a game, enjoy cocktails, conversation and fabulous home cooked meals. The sweeping, 360 degree ocean views and the rhythmic sounds of crashing waves make this location an ideal retreat for artists and writers looking for inspiration;a unique setting for a milestone anniversary or birthday celebration; or a cozy, romantic couples’ oasis.
Of course, guests can expect stunning views and the rare opportunity to stay inside an active lighthouse that doubles as a superbly appointed luxury inn. Guests may opt to dine on the island but are also able to enjoy the restaurants and activities of Maine’s Boothbay region via the property’s boat transfer.
