Rob Blood, founder and CEO of Lark Hotels announced the company will begin management contracts with two Portland, Maine boutique hotels, the nine room Danforth and the eight room Pomegranate Inn beginning in April 2013.
Additionally, Lark is currently developing, renovating and managing 76 Main, a new 20 room hotel opening this spring on Nantucket and The Break, a new-build, 16 room hotel and restaurant in Narragansett, Rhode Island set to grand open in spring 2014.

“We are thrilled about these four exceptional boutique properties joining the Lark Hotels collection,” said Mr. Blood. “We’re looking forward to continuing to grow our brand with intimately sized properties in premier east coast seaside destinations and to providing our guests with the amenities they desire, service they will remember and a design experience that captures a strong sense of place.”
Lark Hotels also owns and manages the Captain Fairfield Inn in Kennebunkport and The Attwater in Newport, Rhode Island, which will debut a spa treatment and fitness room this spring.
The Danforth, a nine room Federal-style property built in 1822, features swanky old-school style with 14 wood burning fireplaces; grand, multi-paned windows; and a basement billiards room that served as a speakeasy in the days of prohibition. Pomegranate Inn, an eight room property built in 1884, serves as an eclectic three-story gallery for Maine’s artistic community. Located in Portland's West End, the inn charms with a brilliant play of color and texture and literally hundreds of pieces of original art from Maine artists.
76 Main on Nantucket is the only hotel located directly on esteemed Main Street in Nantucket town and will introduce a new type of accommodation to the island with interior designs by Boston-based Rachel Reider Interiors. The Break will be Narragansett’s first boutique property and will also feature a pool, rooftop lounge and easy access to the town’s best surf breaks.
