"Best Place to Check into History: Pentagöet Inn, Castine, Maine"

Although now well off the beaten path, until 1820 the Brits, French, and Dutch fought over Castine's strategic location at the mouth of the Penobscot River, and historic markers recount those struggles.  Borrow a bike from the Queen Anne-style Pentagöet, an anomaly among the town's Federal and Greek Revival architectural gems, and explore the area.  Afterwards, soak up world history via the portraits displayed in Passports Pub (onsite).  Rates: from $115, including full breakfast.  26 Main St. 800-845-1701; pentagoet.com
