Chebeague Island, Maine – Reported by Erin Riley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
This summer, Chebeague Island Inn is offering a delightful Farm-to-Table Package that will have its guests gallivanting through gardens, participating in local farming and sampling fresh produce. Tucked away on a charming island in Casco Bay, a mere 15-minute ferry ride from the coast of Maine, Chebeague Island Inn is a beautifully restored 1920’s hotel that has welcomed generations of guests since the 1880s, and is now looking to capitalize on the unique dining experience the locale’s surrounding agriculture has to offer.
A getaway with a passionate sense of time and place, Chebeague Island Inn bespeaks longtime wealth and social elevation. This luxury retreat harkens the quiet glamour of the quintessential Maine summer as epitomized by the roaring twenties, transporting guests to the days of old money aristocracy and nouveaux riches in an understated and classic way.
Dining at Chebeague Island Inn seeks to combine the freshest local ingredients and Atlantic catch in ways that teach modern-day palettes the meaning of old-country splendor. In support of the local farmers and fisherman, this 21-room Greek Revival-style inn capitalizes on its surrounding agriculture to teach guests about the farm-to-table process in a way that is sure to delight the senses. One of the Inn’s main produce suppliers is Chebeague Island’s very own Second Wind Farm, which lies nestled just minutes away at the crest of Roy Hill Road.
This one-of-a-kind package will include two nights luxury lodging in a double-occupancy guest room, daily gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea and house-made pastries, a guided tour of Second Wind Farm and a three-course dinner for two featuring produce from the farm.
