Enjoyable Stay

4.0 on October 27, 2014

We spent two nights in the Harbor Guest House., the building next door It was clean and comfortable with an absolutely fabulous view of the ocean. We enjoyed our stay very much. The food at the Cellar Pub was rather expensive and not particularly good. The breakfast (home made Granola, yum) and other faire was delicious. We would definitely stay again, if in the area.

Lovely Inn.....beautiful location, very comfortable room and we were permitted to have our dog with us which was a plus. Would definitely go back and probably stay longer. Dinner in the Cellar Pub was marvelous!!

Perfect Honeymoon Experience

4.6 on March 19, 2013

Our stay was only three days, the weather was cold and rainy but the warmth of our fireplace warmed room and the very attentive staff created a memorable experience. The dining room provided us with one of the best lobster dinners we have ever enjoyed and we were quite taken with the ambiance of the cocktail lounge. We look forward to returning on one of our anniversaries.

Maine seacoast delight

A very comfortable inn. Wonderful location with view of the Atlantic, short drive to Oqunquit, and reasonable drive to LLBean in Freeport. Staff and breakfast of home baked items are wonderful. Take advantage of the delicious "early bird" dinner specials This was our second visit and we look forward to returning.

Cute inn

My room was comfortable and quaint. It was not super spacious, but I did not expect it to be. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking was a bit limited.

Perfect Getaway

We stayed at the York Harbor Inn for two nights to attend a wedding. Everything was perfect, the room, breakfast, hospitality, and LOCATION. So convenient, will be sure to revisit.

Great Introduction to the Maine Coast

The historic aura and ocean view were surprising and delightful to us. Having to use a public park or drive for shore access made moving around difficult but the stay was very enjoyable.

Perfect Get-A-Way

This was a perfect get a way! We stayed in a beautifully furnished and impeccably clean room at the Harbor Hill Building with a wonderful Ocean View which we took full advantage of. The rooms were very clean and uncluttered. The dining was reasonably priced and the food was fantastic! Looking forward to making this a regular destination/get a way in our future! I will highly recommend this selection of B&B's to all my friends and family.

We had another enjoyable stay. We were spoiled by the room we had on our first stay. The room was a little smaller and did not have some of the amenities. My wife and I are early risers, our morning coffee and tea required one of us getting dressed to go to the main building to get it. Very nice place to stay.

Our overnight at York Harbor Inn

We had a wonderful stay - the staff was very friendly, the room was nice, and we had a great time at "Hoot Night" in the beautiful pub! The food was fantastic and our waitstaff was wonderful. I'd recommend staying here and we will definitely return!
