Maine House (#101)

This is one of our most popular rooms- for good reason. This is a large sunny corner room on the second floor of our Maine House.

You can have the same great view from indie you room because of the large sliding glass door. King bed, upholstered chair, wicker couch, WIFI, cable TV, heat and A/C all make this room very cozy and comfortable.

Outstanding visit to York Harbor, Maine

4.6 on September 15, 2014

We have traveled extensively throughout New England, but no B & B can compare with Dockside Guest Quarters. Not only are the rooms and dining experience great,but also the views of the inner harbor and Atlantic Ocean are superb.

The breakfast was great but service at restaurant was poor. Didn't treat us like we were staying at the Inn next door

Innkeeper Response
I am sorry that you felt the service at our restaurant was not satisfactory because they did not treat you “like you were staying at the inn next door”. We strive very hard to ensure that ALL guests whether they are Inn guest or the general public have a great experience. Given the lack of specifics, I can only apologize that you were not satisfied.


Another great stay !

Beautiful water view, very helpful staff


Cannot beat the views

My room (circa 1972) looked as it had been updated compared to the rooms some of my friends were in. I had a nice fireplace and balcony with a great view of the water. The rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. The sheets were particularly soft and silky. rooms could us a microwave. We dined at the restaurant and the food was excellent.. I had the drunken lobster sautee. Our waitress was great as we were celebrating a friend's big birthday and all were very friendly and accommodating. I will be back


Spent 5 wonderful nights at the Dock Side

Another great stay!

Once again the Dockside did not disappoint. The accommodations are first rate-I believe all have a view of the harbour-and are reasonably priced for the standard of the facility. The grounds are well-kept, the breakfast very fine and we enjoyed a really nice seafood dinner at their restaurant. Very professional and friendly staff. The website booking service is up to date which I appreciated as we made a last-minute booking without any difficulty. Highly recommend a stay here! And do visit the small but lovely beach just a few minutes drive from the Dockside!


Awesome!

Great Place to Stay, Complete New England Feel with Great Views and Meals

4.2 on August 28, 2014

We stayed for a weekend getaway and truly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are simple and nice, nothing fancy but met our needs. The true beauty was the deck off of our room which overlooked the harbor, with a beautiful sunrise great ocean breeze. The morning breakfast was fantastic, including eggs, sausages, bagels, breads, granola, fresh fruit, cereals and coffee/tea. We carried the breakfast back to our room and enjoyed it on our deck, but many guests took advantage of the large covered porch outside the Main House. The service was great, staff friendly and place quiet and clean. The restaurant serves and amazing baked stuffed lobster and is a great option for dining out without going anywhere. We would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, quant and relaxing getaway.
