Best Eco-Inn
OCEANSIDE MEADOWS INN, Prospect Harbor
Explore a 200-acre preserve armed with a guide to the flora and fauna of varied habitats, including sand beach, saltwater marsh, and meadows. Complementing it are organic gardens and a renovated barn, where concerts and exhibits are held. 202 Corea Road (Route 195). 207-963-5557; oceaninn.com

Best Creative Reuse
THE WHARF, Lubec
These spacious oceanfront suites and apartments don’t reveal even a whiff of the building’s former life as a sardine factory. Suites share a common kitchen, and everyone can ohm in the yoga studio. 69 Johnson St. 207-733-4400; wharfrentals.com

Best Coastal Camping
RECOMPENCE SHORE CAMPSITES, Freeport
Lapping waves lull campers to sleep, and cackling gulls awaken them, at this eco-sensitive, woodsy oasis with a mile of shoreline fronting on Casco Bay. Operated by Wolfe’s Neck Farm Foundation. 134 Burnett Road. 207-865-9307; freeportcamping.com

Best Classic Maine Splurge
MIGIS LODGE, South Casco
Visiting Migis is like stepping into an L.L. Bean catalog. Cabins and lodge are scattered under pines edging Sebago Lake’s shore. Then there are the beaches and boats, cookouts and cocktails, kids’ programs and family activities. 30 Migis Lodge Road. 207-655-2524; migis.com

Best Place to Spot a Moose
WEST BRANCH POND CAMPS, Kokadjo
While fourth-generation owner Eric Stirling is fixing up the somewhat creaky 19th-century lodge on First West Branch Pond, there’s still so much to marvel at. Watch moose forage; fly-fish for brook trout; hike nearby peaks; paddle tranquil waters. Frenchtown Road. 207- 695-2561; westbranchpondcamps.com
