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!

Value is in the setting

2.8 on July 06, 2014

The value at Dockside is in the setting. The rooms are average and the breakfast is not as good as at some chain hotels. York is a charming place and the staff at Dockside were very nice, but overall the B&B did not live up to the pictures online.

Almost perfect

4.4 on July 04, 2014

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay, barring one factor. The inn, unlike others in the area, is on a beautiful and secluded point of land. Our suite was spotless, had very comfortable beds, a lovely living room and a deck with outstanding views of the inlet. We could often watch the various boats that frequented the channel before us. We loved it! The Continental Plus Breakfast was a feast for the eyes including a wide range of home baked breads, muffins and French toast, fresh fruit and yogurt plus poached eggs and sausages. All was served in the dining room of the Main House, complete with period antiques, nautical paintings and, of course, wonderful views of the water. Our one disappointing, in fact, surprising experience, was with the inn keeper herself. Her manner was less than the welcoming one we assumed would accompany the setting. She was officious, answering our inquiries but without a hint of warmth or interest. We interacted with several other staff members who were exemplary in their warmth, helpfulness and, best of all, cheerfulness. It was refreshing and reassuring to interact with each of them. We would certainly return to the inn; the many plusses outweighed the occasional discomfort of those few interactions.

Another wonderful visit

This was another delightful visit to this beautiful and well-kept place. We always enjoy our stays at the Dockside.

You won't find any place better than this!

4.8 on June 23, 2014

The Dockside is a perfect place to relax and enjoy seeing the very best of the southern Maine coast without leaving your lawn chair. Birds and boats abound. The staff is friendly and competent and the guests we've meet reflect their satisfaction. We are happy to have found one of the best lodging experience of our many years of wandering along the eastern seaboard.

Our stay at Dockside

This is the second time we have stayed here and we will definitely be back again! It can be difficult to find a bed and breakfast that is also appropriate for our three year old. Patty and the rest of the staff here were very accommodating and welcoming.

Signature Dish

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.
