Surrounded by private oceanfront estates, the charming York Harbor Inn has the air of an exclusive seaside hideaway. It sits in direct contrast to southern Maine’s more commercialized resort areas, and the original timber was laid in the 17th century.

Country Inn rooms are located in the Main building and are smaller in size with queen size beds, flat screen tvs, and private baths. Our Luxury room options vary but many come with four-poster beds, ocean views and terraces, fireplaces and Jacuzzi spa tubs. Luxury rooms are available in the pet-friendly Harbor Crest Inn and beautiful Chapman Cottage with its own dining option, Tavern at Chapman Cottage. Serving seasonally derived small plate menu with outdoor dining on the deck and patio.

There are two dining venues in the main lodge. The lower level houses Ship’s Cellar Pub, which resembles the inside of an elegant yacht. The pub’s live music draws crowds several nights a week, and the lobster roll is delicious. 

Wake up to a hearty hot breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausage and fresh pastries, and stay connected with free Wi-Fi. Or unplug with a relaxing dip in the outdoor hot tub (open year round).

The Nubble Lighthouse (one of the most photographed lighthouses in Maine) is a 12-minute drive north along the coast. Across the street is a beautiful oceanfront park, Hartley Mason Reserve, a perfect spot to relax.

Love the hot food added to the breakfast buffet, but believe the fireplace in the dining room should be lit no matter how many guests are at the inn or what nite it is

Love the addition of the hot food items you added to the breakfast selections
Other Comments
I was deeply disappointed that fireplace in the dining room was not lit on our 2nd nite there. All guests should be able to enjoy the pleasure of that no matter what nite it is or how many guests are at the inn.

Love the location, we go every year at Christmas time, this is our 5th year. We have tried every building now, except the pet friendly Harbor Crest. This last time we stayed in Harbill Cliffs, lovely, but our favorite is Harbor Hill! Harbor Hill is the most luxury of them all, we think! The property is always beautifully decorated at Christmas. The newly added hot items to the breakfast that is included is a big plus!! Breakfast was delicious each morning. We will be back next December!!

We travel twice a year to this area for shopping. We will, for the first time, not use brand hotels again. York Harbor Inn will be our first choice.

Relaxing by the fire. The friendly staff.
Other Comments
The only down side was the heater in the room. When it got up to temperature and shut down, the room seemed to quickly get colder faster than we thought. Everything else was top-notch.
