Travel: State's coastal treasures off the beaten path

A couple of options for eager travelers planning a trip to Maine's Bold Coast:

Bargain: The Captain’s Cabin at the Peacock House, $90 per night

Located in Lubec, Maine, the Peacock House Bed & Breakfast has seven guest rooms, each with a private bath, comfortable bedding and antiques. The Captain’s Cabin — which has a queen bed and private bath with shower — is named after the builder of Peacock House, Captain William Trott. This room has been recently renovated with a nautical theme, including custom-painted walls in a gentle blue to evoke the feeling of the sea, a navigational chart and a teak deck chair. For more information, visit www.peacockhouse.com.

Splurge: The Upper Coach at Riverside Inn & Restaurant, $129 per night

Located in East Machias, Maine, the fully restored Riverside Inn & Restaurant was originally built in the 1800s and served as home to two sea captains until the early 1900s. The Upper Coach — the inn’s most-popular room located on the top floor of the Coach House — has a queen-size bed and features spectacular views of the nearby East Machias River and garden area from a private balcony. The room also has a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave, oven and stove. For more information, visit www.riversideinn-maine.com.
