My guess would be the Mohonk Mountain House, "Around the last bend, a Victorian castle rises above Lake Mohonk, surrounded by carefully landscaped gardens and pristine wilderness. Inside you discover a warm interior that is reminiscent of the beauty outside – extensive woodwork, fireplaces constructed from Shawangunk stone, and expansive windows that frame ...

The answer is yes, as long as you don't consider a taxi to be a car, and you don't mind missing some of the interesting things in the area. A caveat first: it's been ten years since I spent much time in Portland (I lived in Boston, would make occasional day trips or lunchtime stops on my way to/from other parts of Maine).

(An Act of Congress allows recognized Indian tribes to run gambling games that are not lawful in general; the details, are complicated.) Google shows several Indian museums and a few historical sites in New England, at least one of which is ...

I don't think there's anything similar; your best bet might be to try one of the farmers' markets - more details from TimeOut Boston here. These at least have produce and the like, but are only once or twice a week, none year round. Haymarket / Quincy Market doesn't really compare; apparently Haymarket has remaindered produce, so not comparable with the ...
