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.

Just love the York Harbor Inn. The staff, the location - we love it all. However, sometimes the rooms we get are just a little too small. Like this recent stay - bathroom was too small to move in.

The tiny rooms should be a lower price than the "small" rooms so you know what you're getting. It is very hard to shower and get ready in a bathroom/shower the size of a closet. I don't mind paying for a small room, but I think that the price should be less if you're put into a tiny room (3rd floor).
