Situated on the coast about an hour north of Boston, York Harbor has long been one of Maine’s loveliest and least-crowded seaside resorts. Set beside the ocean in the centre of the town, York Harbor Inn is the epitome of a historic New England inn. A 17th century fisherman’s cabin forms the heart of the property, which now includes several neighbouring buildings.
The 61 bedrooms display a wide variety of accommodation, from simple but elegant Country Inn rooms to luxurious guest rooms with Jacuzzi spa tubs, fireplaces, ocean views, balconies and heated tile floors. The fine antiques or period reproductions reflect the extraordinary history of the property.
The 1637 dining room boasts great ocean views and banquette seating is offset with rich fabrics. For something more casual, try the Ship’s Cellar Pub, which features the same great menu served in an atmosphere built to recreate the “down below” of a fine sailing vessel. The Chapman Tavern at Chapman Cottage offers a small plate menu that changes seasonally, with outdoor seating on the patio and deck.
Nearby are a host of unspoilt beaches, walking trails, boating excursions, scenic viewpoints, wildlife reserves, antiquing and much more. Excellent shopping is available nearby and all guest receive a VIP concierge card with exclusive discounts for local merchants and services, and the Kittery Outlet Coupon Book, with over $500 in savings.
