Built in 1900 as a family home, The Breakers opened as an inn in 1932 and has been owned since 1956 by the Laughton family.It’s the kind of place that regulars book in January.Last summer we prowled the New England coast and islands searching for “sandcastles,” our name for the best beachside places to stay.We looked for reasonably priced motels, B&Bs, and campgrounds as well as luxury resorts. In the era of steamboats, trains, and trolleys, New England beaches were lined with seasonal lodging, from basic to grand.An open pasture in 1936 when Aaron Perkins’ grand-father began building here, the 12 acres are now landscaped lawns and flowerbeds, salted with well-spaced vintage cottages with wood-burning fireplaces and screened porches.There are now also several multiunit buildings in matching white clapboard and green shutters, and the former barn is a spacious lobby/living room with coffee, breakfast muffins, and a corner filled with books and board games for rainy days.Most vintage venues have disappeared, many taken by fire or storms, others claimed by soaring coastal property values.
Higgins Beach changes more than most in the course of a day.
“I love this beach, the way it slopes gently to the water,” Marisa Rondina told me, adding, “If there’s a room for me at The Breakers, I come.” Marissa and I were seated on the sea wall above Higgins Beach, a half-mile long and backed by summer cottages.

In Cape Elizabeth, just around a bend in the rocky coast from Higgins Beach, Inn by the Sea is our most luxurious Maine sandcastle.
This low-slung, shingled resort with ocean views is set above spreading lawns.
