'Hood Lahaina, a 19th-century whaling village located on the western side of Maui. The town's many shops, galleries, and turn-of-the-century sugar-plantation houses are just outside the front door; the ocean is a block away.
The Gist Built in 1938 as a general store for U.S. servicemen, the refurbished Lahaina Inn now has 12 small rooms that shine with authentic period furnishings, including antique lamps and headboards. Each has a private lanai (balcony) where guests can while away the hours relaxing on wooden rocking chairs with panoramic views of the city, beach, and the faint outline of the island of Lanai in the distance. An added perk: Online reviews tout the acclaimed, though unaffiliated, downstairs Lahaina Grill for its local seafood specialties.
Free Wi-Fi? Yes.
Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, Discover, MC, Visa.
Details Doubles from $170, suites from $225, one- and two-bedroom cottages from $245; all rates include breakfast.
Thanks for Sharing Steve McCornack loves the Lahaina Inn for its charming old-world touches, super location, and shuttle service to Kaanapali Beach (three miles away).
