In 2014, the owners of Camden’s Relais & Châteaux property, the Camden Harbour Inn, took over this stately brick manor on the peninsula, and they’ve upped its status to “grand boutique inn,” nicely balancing the elegant Federal architecture with splashy contemporary art and furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in a modern art museum. Breakfast is served in a sunshiney dining room, and guests share common spaces such as an indoor herb garden, an old-school conservatory, and well-kept private gardens out back. The Victoria Mansion is just 2 blocks down the street, and the Old Port's only a 10-minute stroll. Fare at the adjacent restaurant, Tempo Dulu, is Indonesian fusion—unexpected, given The Danforth’s old-school milieu, but a terrific dining experience nonetheless (great cocktails).
