Food Network's Best Hotels for Foodies

#3 Kennebunk Inn, Kennebunk, Maine

Maine’s Kennebunk Inn is like the charming, historic bed-and-breakfast of our dreams — complete with lobster pot pie and lobster white-truffle pizza. The hotel is run by chefs Brian and Shanna O’Hea, who met at the Culinary Institute of America, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that their signature lobster dishes have garnered national attention — on Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate, in Oprah’s O Magazine and in Travel & Leisure. The couple launched an e-commerce business to satisfy the growing demand. In between running the inn and cooking everything for the restaurant, the O’Heas pick up and cook the lobsters on the day of the shipment. Still, we imagine that the lobster pot pie must taste extra special after a day spent exploring the local beaches. Holidays are a particularly fun and delicious time to stay here: The O’Heas prepare a special spirit-messenger dinner with a local psychic in homage to the inn’s haunted history; Christmas sees the return of chestnut bisque; and Valentine’s Day features a tasting menu with coeur a la creme (a heart-shaped dessert that’s like a crustless cheesecake) and a milkshake for two.
