A casually romantic Inn nearby York Beach, Tanglewood Hall is an enchanting 1880's Gilded Age estate bed and breakfast nestled along the beautiful coastline of southern Maine. Set amidst lush woodlands, colorful gardens, and whimsical fountains, it offers a quiet oasis in the heart of quaint York Harbor within walking distance of beaches. Once a York Historical Society Decorator Show House, the inn features rooms that have been custom decorated, individually designed, and furnished with luxurious linens with your ultimate comfort in mind. The B&B offers an intimate and reflective setting for your visit. Breakfast can be enjoyed on our large wrap-around veranda surrounded by birds chirping and ocean breezes. Centrally located in York Harbor, a summer resort destination for generations, the Inn provides a relaxing escape with abundant activities nearby. Beaches, fishing villages and rocky coastlines begin here and extend northward. Watch lobster boats and sloops sail in and out of the harbor, enjoy bold ocean views along the Cliff Walk lined with wild rugosa roses just around the corner, or stroll to York's Long Sands and Harbor Beaches, then visit Maine's shining jewel, the beloved 'Nubble' Lighthouse nearby.

Great Stay

4.8 on May 09, 2016

Andy and Su run a great home. The location is perfect to enjoy York. Make sure you take the Cliff and Fisherman's walk. Both provided truly beautiful nature sites. Breakfast was outstanding. Andy and Su provide great meal tips and take him up on preparing a trip map for your adventures. His map and suggestions provided my wife and I with a great day in Kennebunkport.

Very good

Su and Andy were excellent hosts. They were especially helpful when providing suggestions for restaurants and directions. We forgot a few items and they graciously mailed them to us! The property was exceptional!

Wonderful Inn - We'll Be Back!

5 on August 31, 2009

We recently spent 3 nights at Tanglewood Hall with our two kids, ages 9 and 10, and stayed in the Cottage Suite. It was perfect for us, as it was actually two rooms, one with a queen bed and the other with a twin and an aero bed. The room was spotless, and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast each morning was a hot, vegetarian entree, plus homemade granola, yogurt, fruit, assorted breads, juice, coffee and tea. Each one was delicious! Su and Andy were very helpful with recommendations on where to eat and things to do. None of the restaurants they suggested failed to please. We wish we'd had more time to simply hang out on the spacious front porch, lying in the comfy hammock, reading a book. We plan on going back during the slower months, just us parents, for a more relaxed getaway. A must-do is the Cliff Walk, which is just a short ways from the Inn. It is a beautiful, but slightly strenuous, walk along the water leading to Harbor Beach. Having the kids with us, we enjoyed the old-fashioned Fun-a-rama, a good place for some skeeball. The Goldenrod is the place for taffy. Tanglewood Hall is a wonderful place for couples, families with teenagers or well-behaved younger children. Su and Andy are a pleasure to visit with and seem to thoroughly enjoy meeting each and every one of their guests.

Its Okay but nothing to write home about

I will say the rooms were comfortable. We had rented several rooms for my wedding party. We sort of wanted to keep to ourselves and thought it would be so nice to have everyone getting ready together. The housekeepers/owners seemed annoyed by this, however were quite fine when I made the deposit for 5 rooms. To add to the displeasure my mother-in-law to be wanted a second piece of french toast but was quickly scolded by the woman working there. I'm sorry but for the price we paid to stay there, it shouldnt have been a problem for her to have seconds on breakfast.

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast

This is one of the most beautiful bed and breakfasts we have ever been to. A very romantic getaway. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and we were spoiled by the breakfast. The hospitality was second to none. Great suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing in the lovely surrounding area.

Exceeds Expectations!

We read, researched all the net reviews, guest comments on Tanglewood's web page, and decided to make the jaunt up to York from NYC. This inn is not your typical experience. One could spend a whole day just admiring the exceedingly tasteful eclectic furnishings and art. The entire property is simply enchanting. And Sue and Andy were so down to earth, ever enthusiastic to share the breathtaking heavenly beauty of the area. Go!
