Rooms & Rates

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. There is a large deck with comfortable chairs, begging you to spend some time enjoying the view, directly out the harbor channel to the ocean. 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. The bathroom has been completely updated yet retains the classic cast iron claw footed tub. Many guests send us outstanding sunrise pictures each year, taken from this deck!

Even nicer than pics on website. Our 2-room suite with veranda overlooking the harbor and water was comfortable, very relaxing, and more beautiful than we had expected. Service was very cordial and attentive.

Beautiful View in York Harbor

The view can not be beat. The bed was extremely comfortable although the sheets were rather scratchy. Unfortunately the claw-foot tub was a huge challenge for me having had knee replacement surgery. Owners were friendly and breakfast was very good.

Always Awesome

Ran up to York just for the night and was lucky enough to find a room at the Dockside. this place never disappoints. The room was lovely and spacious and you can't beat the view for my money.

Wonderful Weekend

We were there for a wedding. This was hosted in very efficient manner. and a good time was had by all. But we enjoyed the facilities so much that we hope to come back again --- may be for few days in the middle of the week.

Great romantic weekend

We went up for our anniversary and were greeting with a bottle of champagne. The staff was beyond friendly, the grounds were more beautiful than we oculd have ever imagined and the value received was exceptional. Would definitely go back and highly recommend it for couples. Plus, only 15 minutse from Ogunquit.

Beautiful Sunset on York Harbor

4.0 on August 09, 2014

We had a lovely stay in Room 110, which was like our own private cabin on the harbor. They surprised us, for our anniversary, with a bottle of sparkling wine including glasses and ice bucket , which we enjoyed after dinner in our room. It was quite warm so we had dinner in the dining room but next to the window so had a great view of the harbor. Our server was delightful and we missed him the next night, as he was serving at a group function. I enjoyed watching the boats coming and going as well cormorants and gulls from our deck. My only disappointment was they had a group of 20 our second evening dining, who were quite noisy which made it hard to enjoy the evening. They need a private room for large groups.

Beautiful location!

4.6 on August 08, 2014

The setting of the Dockside is outstanding. If you want to be away from the summertime crowds of York Beach yet still be close enough to shops and restaurants, this is the place to go. You can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the York River and Harbor from anywhere on this property. We biked around beautiful homes, kayaked the York River, and walked on nearby trails. It was a very enjoyable place to stay!

Roasted Duckling with orange sauce
Not a meal you normally prepare at home because of the time it takes. The time we take make it worth it!! Roasted twice to remove the grease normally associated with duck. A cranberry stuffing with crisp skin gives the duck wonderful flavor.
