My husband and I stayed here for a weekend stay. The views from the inn were gorgeous. It was a serene, peaceful place to sit and relax. We enjoyed the "continental plus" breakfast, which featured two egg dishes and sausage one day and an egg dish, apple-baked french toast and sausage the next day. The breakfast also included fresh fruit, muffins, pastries, bagels, granola, yogurt and delicious bread. The inn was quiet and clean. We would stay here again.

The beautiful setting with its view of York Harbor, the clean comfortable room, and the pleasant accommodating staff make a stay at the Dockside Quarters a delight! Our many visits there have consistently provided a wonderful base site for exploring southern Maine.

Great weekend getaway. Beautiful location, staff friendly, very helpful and informative. Unable to rate dining as it was still early in season and their restaurant was not open yet.

The cleanest room we have ever stayed it. The room had a very nice view too and the staff was very helpful.

The road leading up to the inn was very unassuming. After passing boat slips and warehouse buildings we emerged onto a landing with a beautiful view and a welcoming cozy, quiet inn. Breakfast was good and room was so comfortable. Well worth the price. I will go again.

A beautiful B&B with great views and harbor access, Dockside Guest Quarters doesn't disappoint. Its restaurant was also outstanding -- however, nothing "exceeded my expectations" for what I paid for. For $300+ per night, everything was spot on -- beautiful views, great room, outstanding breakfast, and superb service. It's what I expect for the cost. Will definitely come back as its proximity to Boston makes it an easy weekend trip.

Really warm welcome and excellent service all round. Great room in the historic main house (103) with super comfortable bed and spacious well equipped bathroom. Breakfast is a buffet of good quality hot and cold food and there is plenty to choose from, including freshly baked breads. Hot drinks and cookies are available later in the day. We had a good meal at the onsite restaurant where the staff were friendly and helpful. Lobster roll was delicious and local beer excellent! Couldn't have a more picturesque location. Highly recommended.

The Dockside was a beautiful intimate property, with gracious hosts and in a lovely setting. You could tell the owners really wanted us to have a wonderful stay. We celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary and can't wait to return again!

Loved everything about Dockside! We were greeted warmly! The Drunken Lobster Saute is the best dinner ever! Top that with great wine, great service and Crème Brulee. The rooms are charming, beds comfortable, a peaceful night sleep. The Baked French Toast was a wonderful way to start the day. We will be back!!

The view was spectacular! During our 11 day stay in Maine, we stayed at five very different accommodations. Dockside was our favorite accommodations and we would definitely stay there again. The food was delicious and proprietor was very personable.
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!

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.
