Ogunquit and Kennebunkport, ME are really nice.  I liked Ogunquit the most.

I agree with Bar Harbor (because that’s where we’re going) but I also strongly encourage you to look at Jamestown, Rhode Island.  It’s a beautiful small town with a park and a lighthouse and there are reasonably priced rooms at the East Bay Bed and Breakfast.

I know all of these places and they are all great. I would also suggest Cape Cod or the White Mountain region of New Hampshire.

I saw on Guilt these two RI hotels http://www.gilt.com/invite/jenfitzg The first is in Providence http://www.jetsetter.com/sale/hotelprovidence/hotelprovidence?nm=splash&cl=2 which is very walkable and the hotel offer is quite a good deal. Also, there is a Providence to Newport ferry so they could spend a day in Newport, and not have to deal with the headache that is Newport parking (and take a ferry ride). There’s a lot going on in Providence and a lot of great restaurants.

There’s also this hotel if you are looking for something more secluded. http://www.jetsetter.com/sale/stonehouse/stonehouse?nm=splash&cl=1 It looks amazing and super romantic. It is in Little Compton which is the perfect place for a romantic get away, they could visit Sakonnet vineyards for a wine tasting, spend time on a beach not overrun by tourists and Newport is about 20-30 minutes by car. I’ve never been to this hotel but Little Compton is a really quaint place with a small main street and generally very friendly people.

@littlecat: I have nothing to share (as a west coast bride) but I just wanted to say, you are such a GREAT bridesmaid & friend to offer this as a gift!  Kudos to YOU!

Okay, this is completely different than what everyone else has suggested, and may be out of your budget, but I thought I would give you the option anyways 🙂

You said she had a few days midweek. There are 2-3 day cruises that leave from NE several times a week and hit up a few spots in the NE states (Bar Harbour being one) and Atlantic Canada- Halifax, Saint John, sometimes PEI. Old, fun cities!

They are short, they are fun, they are inexpensive (in comparison to other cruises!) and they are on a CRUISE!

Have you looked into Winvian? It’s very unique.
